The New Covenant

July 24, 2016 "Behold I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels." .....Exodus 34:10 Many of us do not differentiate clearly between the promises of God, the accomplished facts of God (His mighty works) and the Covenant of God. Promises are given to encourage faith but often we cannot rise up to believe God's promises. At times we c...

Redemption and Dedication.

"The Lord hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, out of Egypt, to be unto Him a people of inheritance." Deuteronomy 4:20 Nowhere in either the Old or the New Testament is dedication divorced or separate from redemption. The two are intimately linked, they go hand in hand and we never find the one without the other. The Apost...

Pharisee or Sinner?

"As many as touched Him were made whole." ....Mark 6:56 Recall the incident of the Pharisee and the publican at prayer in the temple. The Pharisee understood all about tithes and offerings, yet from him there was no cry from his heart to God; it was all in his mind so to speak.

Filled With the Spirit

April 30 2019 "Be filled with the Spirit...singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord." .... Ephesians 5:18 The word "Plerousthe" is the Greek word meaning "be being filled".

Hidden Treasure

April 15 2019 "I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beseech you to walk worthily of the calling wherewith ye were called." ....Ephesians 4:1 Has it dawned upon me yet that the Spirit of God within me is a real living Person?

The Blessing of Suffering

January 25 2019 "Whom the Lord loves he chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives." ...Hebrews 12:6 It seems clear that Spiritual vision by itself is not enough to transform a life.

New Year, New Venture

January 1, 2019 "Oh Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!" ....Psalm 8:1 & 9 (This year starts a new venture for Christian Life Frankston.

Foot washing.......

December 13, 2018 "Ye also ought to wash one another's feet" ...John 13:14 The washing of the feet alluded to here is for refreshment; it does not relate to sin. Unlike sin, the dust and dirt that gather on our feet are inevitable. To roll in the mud would be sin, certainly, but if we touch the world at all, our feet will be dusty. A brother workin...

The Dew of Heaven

November 27, 2018 "I will be as the dew unto Israel." ....Hosea 14:5 These words describe the beginning of everything in the 'New Life' experience of God's children. Dew-fall is altogether vital to the life and growth of trees and flowers. It is the very nourishment that sustains their life. And to us also, the Lord Himself promises to be as the de...

Alive From the Dead

28 October 2018 "I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service." ...Romans 12:1   These words take us beyond the mere individual for they imply contribution to a whole.
