Non stop this week

It has been so good to be taking the great name of Jesus out into the streets of Liverpool and into the events we have organised. 
God's people from both sides of the Atlantic have been faithful to the great commission . 
Trusting in Him to reap the harvest as the workers have been out in the the fields these last few days.

Angels rejoice.

A remarkable story began for a young woman in Croxteth yesterday . We knocked on her door and God knocked on her heart. 

The whole team were truly humbled as we witnessed how the Spirit of God draws people to himself. 

We are rejoicing with the angels.

Brothers and sisters working together.

What unites a community of people?  

As Christians we are joined together by our desire to follow Jesus Christ. So when Christian  folk who we have never met before come and join us and live in our homes and seek to serve alongside us then we are immediately united by our common faith . 

Today as we sought to obey the great commission  I was struck by the harmony and the humour found in this band of brothers and sisters πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ™πŸ»πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

Helpers from afar. The USA .

A few of my brothers and sisters ( in Christ ) flew in today to help us with a week of outreach that we have at Bethel. 
Really looking forward to getting to know these guys and working with them. 

All for Him πŸ™πŸ»
Joe & Joe & Maggie doing the airport selfie. Apparently Joe ( with the beard ) forgot he had a flick knife and a bullet in his luggage ( as he didn't check his bag before he left ) πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ it got confiscated of course πŸ™ˆ Maggie's face reflects the drama 😳

The last breakfast ... for James

James, one of our  merry band of brothers , is off to Leeds at the weekend to start a new job . We took the opportunity to say farewell over a good old English breakfast πŸ‘πŸ». Followed by Luke 23 as we continued our studies in the word of God. 

This afternoon was glorious ... sat in the garden studying in the bright sunshine. Staring at the tree πŸ˜„πŸ‘πŸ»

Met with Phil today, something we have done regularly since we worked in Wem together. We know each other well , having been friends for 13 years . These meetings are always encouraging and challenging as we hold each other accountable . The Macdonald's and the coffee also help us along πŸ˜„πŸŸ☕️ 

Also today the girls at Archbishop Blanch Christian Union were an encouragement as together we assembled some shoeboxes , ready to brighten up the Christmas of these who have much less than we do. Have you put together a box yet ?

Manchester today

Attended a conference on evangelism today. Addressing the question that most people ask . If there is a God then why pain and suffering. ? 

God has never in his word said we will not suffer in this life. In fact he has said that in this world we will have tribulation. 

What lies beyond this world though is a paradise that has no death or pain. 

This we believe and this we trust as Christians. There is light at the end of the tunnel. And if we would only look hard there is light in the tunnel as well.

It's just not about us ... It's about Him

Sunday's are special in many ways. 
During the week our thoughts are often very self centred and we become self consumed . 
On Sunday we move away from this way of thinking and living and we give ourselves over to God. 
He becomes the centre as we gather in His name. Giving Him the glory. 

So if you gathered with God's people yesterday why don't you spend some time today recalling what you heard and in so doing you will turn your thoughts off yourself and back onto Him. The longer you can do this throughout the week the more peace and joy you will know and the more God centred your life will be.

Some .... times ...

Some of your time is well spent .Some of your time isn't. 

We all know the difference .... 

If today has not been well spent then don't despair . 

The beautiful thing about God's grace is that from this moment on changes can be made ..

So take some time to ponder , listen to the voice of conscience married to His Spirit and make the changes. 

Time is a wonderful gift given to each of us. Let's not waste it . Make each moment count .

To God be the glory. 

This is a poem found in Chester Cathedral 


Raindrops keep falling on my head ..


Went for a walk today , a spur of the moment thing to Crosby beach. Didn't take our raincoats. 

Still much enjoyed though πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’¦πŸ’¦
