Holy Spirit

Come now Holy Spirit, refresh my life today.
Bring God’s Holy Word to mind when ‘ere I pray.
Open mine eyes I pray, let Thy Spirit see through me.
Let my speech be seasoned with words from Thee.
That I might be a conduit prepared for Thy love..
An outpouring of Thy love must come from above.

Come Holy Spirit talk to me, more settled I will be.
To seek, to find and to follow Thy word tells me
That more confidence and knowledge I will retain.
To have Your word in me is a glorious refrain.
With your word in me I am able to repeat it again.
This I do in obedience to Jesus’ holy  name.


Psalm 34:5 - 8  “ Those who look to Him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces....Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh the joys of those that take refuge in Him,”

Psalm 16:11  “ You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.”

Foxes in the Chicken Coop

Be careful what you find within our church walls.
But be more concerned what travels down our halls.
Search and destroy all grumbling and murmurs.
Don’t just “nod” when you hear negative talk.
                    DO SOMETHING

Let nothing negative pass from your mouth to the body of Christ.
Whenever you are able, testify the positive, build up the body with praise.
Satan does not sit outside our church waiting for permission to come in.
He travels incognito on the backs of unbelief and unconfessed sin.
He moves amongst us, watching and picking things and people apart.
He has plans to divide our church and steal our joyful hearts.
He is a master instigator who will tear our faith apart.
                    DO SOMETHING.

Build up the body with words of approbation.
Let no-one think he is greater than another,
Submit to one another with brotherly love.
Pray, asking God to open your eyes to sin.
                  DO SOMETHING  

Ephesians 4: 3-6 ``Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace .. For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all."

Consider Now

Come now, consider the hammer.
It keeps its head in times of stress,
And it does not fly off the handle.
It keeps pounding diligently away.
It finds the point, then drives it home.
It looks to the other side, and thus
Its decision often clinches the matter
It makes mistakes, but when it does
It often starts its work all over again.
It is the only knocker in the world
That does any mite of good!

Ephesians 2:10  - “We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.”
