The intercession of the Holy Spirit

All of the knowledge, wisdom, human ability and intelligence, mean little unless we are sustained by God especially in our infirmities. Scripture teaches us much about the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and its power of intercession. How does the Holy Spirit assist Jesus Christ's true followers to assist them when they pray to their Father in Heaven.

Unshakable faith from the book of Daniel by Shana Heslin

Many of us have already lost friends, jobs and other life opportunities because of our faith in God, and for our commitment to His law. Many have undertaken a commitment to God with a willingness to sacrifice everything, even ones life, to honour God. However, are we really so convicted that we would stand firm in life-and-death circumstances?

What is Australia Day to you?

What is Australia Day to you?

by Bruce Dean

Is Australia Day nothing more than a day off work for you? Or a day to eat lamb on the barbie, or go to the cricket? It is much more than those things to most Australians. You’d agree that it is a time to reflect on who we are and why we have so many blessings. Have you heard of the amazing story of the rise to greatness of Australia which began some 4,000 years ago?

The key

The key

The key by Richard Bent

As he walked, Henry could feel the weight of the old brass key in his pocket. His mind drifted back to that day over a year ago to when he received the key.

Henry had gone away to enjoy the sights and attractions of the world. But he found no real happiness and contentment in those activities. It was only when he returned home to his Father that he had peace of heart and mind.

The letter read "My dear son, ever since you left all those years ago, my greatest desire has been for you to someday return home to us and to put God once again in your life. This key opens a box that is on the shelf behind my desk in the workshop office. It contains my most precious possessions. They are yours whenever you need them."

Do you have a 'Key' which will open the way back to your, our Father? Isn't it time you used it to return home?

I can resist everything but temptation (and chocolate)

I can resist everything but temptation (and chocolate) by Roger Waite

The famous Irish writer Oscar Wilde once jokingly said, "I can resist everything but temptation." Most of us struggle with habits and even addictions that get the better of us over and over again. If we are trapped with such problems how do we break free?

When we fall victim to sin we do so because we believe certain lies that accompany those sins. In order to be freed from sin we need to recognize those lies and counter those lies with the truth. There are a whole host of different lies and different lines that Satan uses on us to lure us into sin. Let's look at two of the most common lies as examples of this point of countering the lies of sin with the truth.

This is the second part of a series of blogs about the purpose of God's law.

In the first part of this series, we considered what God's law is in conjunction with His Word. We also looked at how these laws will be taught in the future Kingdom of God.

In this blog post, we will explore how the love of God is expressed through obedience of God's laws, how the keeping of God's laws helps us to know and be like Christ, and how God's law is to be our guide to conversion.

The greatest treasure

The greatest treasure

The greatest treasure by Richard Bent

What's your greatest treasure?

Some have gone to great lengths to find their treasure and then to hide it away in fear of losing it. However there is a treasure which when given is not to be locked away in a dark hiding place, but nurtured, fed and watered, sharpened and tempered, held precious in our hearts and minds, until a future time. It is a treasure worth fighting for, this is a treasure worth the discipline and sacrifice of a Christian life. It is the a most precious gift from God - a treasure so magnificent it pales into insignificance all the vast wealth of this world.

What's that treasure?
