Devotional thoughts for most days, for those who depend on the grace and mercy of God in Jesus Christ. These thoughts are Bible based and inspired by my Reformed tradition.

Have you ever thought of tithing as a burden forced on you by God? Let me correct you this morning.  Tithing is the result of a humble and grateful vow to God for anticipated, prayed for, blessings.

The common goal in the Body of Christ is the growth of the body and the growth of its members. As each member grows  it causes the growth of the body as a whole. The Body is responsible for the building up of itself in love as it ministers to each member.

 The desire for boldness was the joint desire of all the believers in the first Church in Jerusalem.

 I believe in the one and only almighty God:

the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The LORD our God, the LORD is one!

We all need the power of prayer in the Name of Jesus. And we will only experience powerful prayer in the Name of Jesus, if our prayers are guided by the Holy Spirit.

On Sunday we will be sitting in our quaint, beautiful chapel, sharing bread and wine. Yet this experience will call upon our senses and our memories and we will find ourselves being taken 2000 years and a continent away, to an upper room in Jerusalem where Jesus and his 12 disciples first shared this very Supper.

 It is no longer I that liveth
but Christ that liveth in me.
He lives, He lives,
Jesus is alive in me.
It is no longer I that liveth
but Christ that liveth in me

We need to admit what we feel. Denial of our feelings will simply suppress them and not allow us to deal with them in a healthy way. Even if we try to suppress our emotions, it will eventually surface again and then it could return in destructive outcomes. 
By Andries on Tuesday, January 12, 2016 2:28:55 AM
We all know that both positive and destructive emotions are part of being us and being human. Joy, pleasure, love, pity, compassion and optimism are positive, motivating experiences. Loneliness, confusion, sadness, despair, anxiety, anger, and even hatred are destructive emotions and can ruin lives if not dealt with positively.
