     | 432 views

    In Philippians 2 we find the great imperative command that we need to "have the mind of Christ Jesus." Is that possible? Can our minds be so transformed by the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit that we can actually have the mind of Christ Jesus within us?

     | 199 views

    Most of us are probably aware of the Beatitudes, which are recounted in Matthew chapter 5.

    The German theologian, Ludwig Philipp Albert Schweitzer, an Alsatian polymath, once remarked: “I still remain convinced that truth, love, peaceableness, meekness, and kindness are the violence which can master all other violence. The world will be theirs as soon as ever a sufficient number of ...read more

  • The Heart Of Happiness Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 12, 2021
     | 272 views

    Edwin Markham in his poem The Shoes Of Happiness tells the story of a king in Istanbul who was ill. He called his wise men together to find a cure.

  • Fighters For Peace Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 12, 2021
     | 180 views

    The peacemaker must take the same risks as the warmaker. It costs Jesus His life to be a peacemaker, and this is the price many have paid to bring peace between God and man, as well as between men.

    One of the paradoxes of life is the fact that the peacemaker must be a fighter to be effective. Edwin Markham just before his death in 1940 remarked that his fondest hope had not been realized. He had wanted to write a poem that would dispense the armies of the world. Unfortunately, peace is ...read more

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 11, 2021

     | 175 views

    Men become desperate when they hunger and thirst, and all the energy of their being is concentrated on one goal-to satisfy their need. This sounds like misery, and it is, but it is in the spiritual realm another example of the paradoxical misery that leads to happiness.

    A woman leaving church said to the pastor, "Thank you for that sermon, it was so helpful." The pastor said, "I hope it was not as helpful as the last one." "Why what do you mean," she asked. "Well," he said, "that last sermon lasted you three ...read more

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 11, 2021
