Good morning. There are many proverbs in the Bible on the theme of self-control. They’re written to young people, after all, who can sometimes be as hot-headed as this little guy. But young or old, we all know what it’s like to feel the smoke coming out of our ears at times. To overlook an insult: now there’s an achievement. I think of the way Jesus was treated at the trial that led to his death. Having spoken so many words during his life, under the fire of accusation and insult Jesus said little. As a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth, as the prophet saw so far in advance. Jesus had a purpose in keeping schtum. And if we too can learn to focus on what’s important to God, it will help us control our reactions when we are under fire. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning. Did you see the rowing at the Olympics last week – the race where the British boat veered off course so badly that they nearly crashed into another boat? It was compelling viewing but it could have been disastrous for both boats. It certainly kept us out of the medals for that race. We’ve now reached the last of the Apostle Paul’s virtues that he calls “the fruit of the Spirit”. Last but not least is self-control, and I can almost hear a collective groan. I know, I struggle with this one too. The word Paul uses means power over oneself. It was a word used a lot by the ancient Greek philosophers, so they clearly had a problem with self-control too! But as all Olympians know, running a straight race is one of the keys to success. The Holy Spirit makes it possible. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning. This week we’ve been thinking about faithfulness. To finish, here are some of God’s promises which we can rely on: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you” (Isaiah 43). “I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you” (Jeremiah 29). “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13). And what did Jesus promise? “Anyone who comes to me I will never drive away” (John 6). “Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying” (John 11). “I will ask the Father, and He will send you…the Spirit of truth” (John 14). The person in this photo is standing on a mountain top. The way to become a strong, resilient and faithful Christian is to take our stand on the promises of God, the rock beneath our feet. ...

Good morning. A man was walking along a beach, but he wasn’t looking at the beautiful scenery. He’d just lost £10,000 in a crazy afternoon of gambling, money he could ill afford to lose. He was dreading going home to his wife and admitting what he’d done. It wasn’t the first time and he was pretty sure she wouldn’t forgive him. Somehow his thoughts turned to God – was there any hope there, he wondered? One of the glories of the Bible story is that total forgiveness is at the heart of it. Full, free forgiveness, whatever we’ve done. This verse tells us that God’s gift of forgiveness is part of his faithfulness. Through Christ He has given an unbreakable promise that He will always forgive all those who confess their sins. No ifs, no buts. It’s a promise sealed in blood. ... See MoreSee Less
