Love has many opposites - hate, lust, apathy and power.

Sadly some leaders deeply desire to be in total control. Rather than liberating people to serve and use their spirituals gifts they desire to smother and control every situation and mould everything into their image.

Loving others requires us to die to ourselves. Thinking through what would God do and how do I give Him the glory. We like to hold the reigns tights and call the shots.
Some will shoot any who don't conform.

Matthew 20:25 But Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. 26 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave. 28For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Power and control was one of Satan's temptations of Jesus, so why not us?

Matthew 4:8-9 Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9“I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will kneel down and worship me.”

What do you let define you?

A sin or a success?
A victory or a failure?
A moment in time or years of struggle?
Faithfulness or folly?
The voice in your head or the comments of others?
A recent event or a moment from your past?
What words do you use to describe yourself?

Is this how God sees you
He has
Chosen you before eternity
Calls you his child
His heir
He has forgiven you,
Filled you with His Spirit
Is preparing an eternal home for you.
God calls you a saint, chosen, special, loved and worth dying for.

Let God define you not the world.

New year resolutions?
Lose weight, get fit, be healthy, work harder, read more ...
When all is said and done.
Discovering the will of God and doing it should be our number one priority.

'But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.'
Acts 20:24

In moments of overwhelming stress I cannot find the right words to say to God about what is happening in my life. I stumble over phrases and hope that God somehow understands

Psalm 5 (the Message)
Listen, God! Please, pay attention!
Can you make sense of these ramblings,
my groans and cries?
    King-God, I need your help.
Every morning
    you’ll hear me at it again.
Every morning
    I lay out the pieces of my life
    on your altar
    and watch for fire to descend.

... You are famous, God, for welcoming God-seekers,
    for decking us out in delight.

The Psalms is the words of Doctrine being sung to the tune of Blues music

Psalms 18:6 But in my distress I cried out to the LORD; yes, I prayed to my God for help. He heard me from his sanctuary; my cry to him reached his ears.

What is your favourite USA presidency Bible Verse?

…he removes kings, and sets up kings. Daniel 2:21

They set up kings without my consent; they choose princes without my approval. Hosea 8:4

The Most High has power over human kingdoms. He gives them to whomever he wishes. Daniel 4:17

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Romans 13:1

Jesus answered [speaking to Pilate], “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above.” John 19:11

Last Sunday did my church sing prophetically about the USA election?

'The trump shall resound,
and the Lord shall descend'

From 'it is well with my soul.'

I am happy Hilary Clinton has lost the election. I hope Trump will reverse the liberal economic and social policies of his predecessors. It's hurts us to see such a great nation likeAmerica being destroyed by liberals and their evil agents of New World Order. Thanks, Collen; makumbirofa@protonmail.com

For those who are hungry for perversion, they will politely seek to change laws to suit their desire.

Paedophiles will fight to lower the age of consent in the name of freedom and liberty. Hoping that if sometime is now legal it is also moral.

No fault divorce means adultery is no longer frowned upon.

Homosexuality is now given the sterilised name of same-sex marriage.

For Christians we define ourselves by what God has revealed through Scripture.

Most of society relies on cultural norms, tradition, experience, common sense and understanding the need to limit the darker side of human nature. Sadly these boundaries are open to interpretation and media bias.

What we see as black and white others only see grey, each new year will bring new challenges, new battles, new issues.

We are called to be God's servants, protect the powerless, help the poor, stand up for truth, and speak Christ into every moment and each event.

As I prepare a sermon,
I hope my humour will entertain you,
My deep thoughts will inspire you,
The catchy phrases will enchant you,
But really
Only Jesus will save.

Christ needs to be the centre
of each word I speak.
He alone is to be exalted.
A sermon should have you reaching for a Bible,
Give you a passion to devour scripture,
Make you pray to the risen Lord,
Give you a desire to be Christlike.

To measure a sermon is not how many times you laughed,
Not what stories made you smile,
Not what deep things you know,
But to bring you to your knees and pray
God forgive me, take all of me, use me,
your humble servant wants
to be used by you for your glory.
Amen.

Should we feel deep loss?

We all can go through unbearable stress, overwhelming abuse, be let down by those who should protect us, feel the pain, be shattered and devastated.
Be overpowered or oppressed.

Why? We ask, why me?

In such times it is good to remember that God is in the midst and gives hope.

Some thoughts from the Message translation of Philippians 1.
There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.

Learn to love appropriately. You need to use your head and test your feelings so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush

Hang in there.

Christmas is about God coming to earth as a man.

So was Jesus God?

God's unique characteristics include being eternal, all knowing (Omniscient) ,all powerful (omnipotent), present everywhere (omnipresent) and Unchanging (Immutable)

In the New Testament Jesus is presented with these 5 traits as well.
Eternal and all powerful
Colossians 1:16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
All knowing
John 16:30 Now we can see that you know all things.

Present everywhere
Matthew 28:20 surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Unchangeable
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Only God should be worshipped but Jesus was also worshipped.
John 20 Thomas said you are my Lord and God.

Revelation 5:13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honour and glory and power, for ever and ever!”

Christmas for some is a story of baby, inns, riding a donkey, a pregnant mum on a long journey.
All great human interest events.

But underneath it, is a God interest event.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:14  The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.

(My sermon summary for this week.)
