God’s Word judges us.

“He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges Him— the word that I have spoken will judge Him in the last day” John 12:48; NKJV. I love God’s Word and we need to be saturating in the Word so that we can understand all God has for us and walk in it. In God’s Word He makes it clear that His Word is truth and life (John 17:17; John 6:63) and that His word will make us free (John 8:32). Free from what? Free from all the evil that sin brought into our lives, freedom to enjoy all of the blessings of God and to be His ambassadors on this earth (2 Cor 5:20). God tells us that if we truly love Him, we will keep His Word (John 14:21). God wants to do amazing things through all of our lives. We are not waiting on Him but He is waiting on us! As I was studying recently the verse above in John 12:48, struck me. Jesus was addressing many who would not receive His Words but as Christians this verse can still speak to us. At the end of our race God won’t ask us how it was with our plans and programs but simply judge our lives against His Word! Were we open to His whole Word or just our favorite parts, did we embrace it all or skirt around the challenging bits, did we have some convenient blind spots, were we His sold-out ambassadors? Praise God for His unconditional love and forgiveness. Let our lives be truly focused on being all He wants us to be, a truly amazing and fulfilling life. Wow, I preached myself happy.


As Christians we are called to live by faith (Gal 3:11). In other words salvation and all God's promises for us are received by faith. There is a wonderful definition of faith in the Amplified Bible translation of 2 Timothy 3:16; "the leaning of the entire human personality on God in Christ Jesus in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness". My definition is knowing that you know, that you know, that you know that all God's promises are ours! How do we get faith? God has given all of us a measure of faith (Rom 12:3). To receive all God has for us and walk in all He wants us to do we need to strengthen or grow our faith. How do we do that? In Romans 10:17 (NKJV), we are told: "so then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God". As we hear God's Word preached and read it for ourselves, our faith will grow. Need healing for example? then search your bible for scriptures on healing and meditate on them. I promise you it works.

The Mystery

In the New Testament we see several references to: “the mystery” (E.g., Col 2:1-3). The apostle Paul showed us that “the mystery” is the revelation of the ministry of God’s Son Jesus on this earth, culminating in His death, resurrection and ascension into heaven and all the impact this can have on our lives (1 Tim 3:16). Through his death and resurrection Jesus defeated satan, stripped him of all his evil power and authority (Col 2:15) and won forgiveness of all of our sins. Our sins separated us from God and left us open to all of the works of the devil (John 10:10). When we believe in Jesus and ask Him into and give Him control of our lives, we can experience God’s forgiveness, restored fellowship with Him, victory over satan and the wonderful new life God has for us (John 10:10). We call this salvation.
As a boy I was taught scripture in school; I loved the Old Testament battles and heroes and the things Jesus did, but as a non-Christian, I had no understanding of the powerful, life changing spiritual significance of the Bible. No one ever told me I could be saved and have an amazing personal relationship with Jesus. You see as a non-Christian, natural human being, the Bible was a mystery to me, simply a book of stories, no more (1 Cor 2:14).
When we are saved, Jesus comes and lives in us in the form of the Holy Spirit (), the third part of the trinity (God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit). We are all spirit beings; we live in a body and have a soul (1 Thess 5:23). As Christians, the Holy Spirit interacts with our spirit and brings the scriptures alive to us (1 Cor 2:9-10), and as a result we can see the full spiritual truth, meaning and power of God’s Word and how it can change our lives; the mystery is revealed to us! It’s wonderful, life changing! Get in the Bible, pray, ask God through His Spirit, to give you revelation of all He has for you and how He wants to use you to share Him with others.

Peace of mind

Do you ever find your mind wandering, full of a myriad of thoughts, some of which you are not proud of and others that create worry, stress, fear and depression?
God promises us perfect peace of mind if we focus our minds on Him (Isaiah 26:3). We need to bring: "every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor 10:5), "set your mind on things above not on things on the earth" (Col 3:2).
How do we do this? We need to spend quality time in His Word so that when the wrong thoughts try to pop up we just naturally replace them with God thoughts. This means immersing ourselves in the Word, not just on Sunday or a few minutes here and there. We need to make God's Word a priority, studying it day and night (Psalm 1:2). Believe me the results are amazing!

Be saved.

In talking to His disciples, Jesus told them: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6; NKJV.) After being arrested for preaching about Jesús, the apostle Paul in addressing the Jewish leaders, said: "nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12; NKJV). The apostle Paul made it clear that all we need to do to be saved and become a Christian is to believe in Jesus Christ (Acts 16: 31). Believe Jesus died as a sacrifice for our sins, rose from the dead and won for us forgiveness and new life in fellowship with Him. Repent of sin and ask His forgiveness. Give Him your life and be saved. So simple but yet we can make it so complicated.
