Hi . My name is Jenna and I am a surgical doctor new to New Zealand. I am doing a project looking at Cultural, ethical and religious views regarding the use of biological products in plastic surgery in New Zealand. Christians are an important group of individuals whose views on the use of animal products need to be taken into consideration when it comes to consent in surgery. I would be grateful if I could post a survey on your page so some of your members could fill out the survey to help us gain better insight into the topic and guide clinical practice. Many thanks
Kia Ora. My name is Jenna and I am a surgical doctor in New Zealand. I am doing a project looking at cultural, ethical and religious views regarding the use of biological products in trauma and cancer surgery. I am interested in exploring the views of members of your community regarding the use of animal products in surgery. I think this is a really important topic and would greatly your views.

Please see link below to a short 4 minute survey. Kind regards Jenna

In Matthew 14 we see Jesus walking on water towards the 12 disciples in their fishing boat. Only Peter has the faith and courage to have a go too. Peter started off so well, but…

"Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
Jesus said, “Come”
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
Peter was doing great. He was walking 'in faith' following the words of Jesus. But then he took his eyes off Jesus and looked at the storm. The passsge says - "he was afraid" - and he began to sink.
Fear is the opposite of faith. Jesus was right there, but Peter looked away from Jesus and looked at the mayhem around him.
DON'T DO IT! The world is 'under the sway of the wicked one' (1 Jn 5:9). You can't trust the world, you can't trust the news, you can't trust the government - they are all 'swayed' by the devil’s lies and misdirection. BUT, you can always trust Jesus. Keep your eyes on him at all times and in all circumstances. God bless.

Thank You HD 720p

"Thank You." 🎼
Scientific research has shown that saying "thank you"
(i) produces a positive emotional state
(II) increases a sense of well being
(III) triggers ‘feel good’ hormones
(iv) re-enforces 'virtuous cycle' in your brain.
Depression is reduced as dopamine is increased. The two little words "Thank you" are simbiotic. They are two of the most powerful words you can say.
1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV: "give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

Jesus said to you and me;

"I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown." (Rev 3:11)
"Look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this book.”(22:7)

At both the beginning and the end of the book of Revelation Jesus reminds us that He is coming SOON! He says it twice because it is very important for us to grasp. It is very urgent that we get this.

Many are shocked at the speed and depth of the decline in morality in the world - yet Jesus said this would happen and He added, "and then the end shall come." (Matthew 24)

Many times throughout the New Testament Jesus reminds us that He will return soon and our job is to continue his work. Today the Holy Spirit is reminding us that WE are to be faithful in worship (together - in our churches), and that Jesus told us ALL to be shining lights for Him, witnesses of the gospel, praying for the sick and for those who don't know Him, and Looking forward to His SOON return.

Just have a read of Matthew chapter 24 and you will see that the signs Jesus said would happen before His return have ALREADY HAPPENED. He could return any time! He could even return today. Ask yourself, "am I ready?" Ask your backslidden friend, your backslidden child, your backslidden brother or sister, "Are you ready?"

PRAYER: Dear Father in heaven, help me to be faithful in an unfaithful age. Help me to be light in this dark world. Help me to be bold to warn my backslidden friends and family members that Jesus may return at any time - even today - and that He does not want them to be left behind. Empower me afresh with your Holy Spirit, Lord, to be you faithful child, your faithful worshipper, and your faithful witness. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

Now find time today to read Matthew chapter 24 and be reminded that Jesus foretold 2000 years ago just what we are living through right now.

Get ready.

Hi everyone.
"Jesus said to the lawyer, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment."
(Matthew 22:34)
In the western world the majority no longer honour God. The first of the 10 Commandments is "you shall have no other gods before me" - but the sad reality is that too many who refer to themselves as 'Christian' actually put God way down their list of priorities.
In our personal time and as we get together today, we can purposely choose to worship God and to put him first in our lives. Jesus put us first when he went to the cross. If he had not done so our future would not bear thinking about! It's a simple matter of choice. Have a good day.
God bless. R&Hx

"Encourage one another and build each other up."
(1 Thessalonians 5:11)

Christ left us all with a simple threefold life ministry. It is not just for ministers, it is for all of his followers;

1. Worship God
2. Tell the world about Jesus
3. Encourage one another

All three are very simple and straightforward, but so easy to neglect.

Encouragement in particular is easily neglected in the 'me first' world that we all inhabit. I was saddened one day to see a beautiful old building being destroyed simply because it was 'in the way' of 'progress' - ie they wanted to replace something lovingly crafted with another concrete monstrosity. Mankind is often better at tearing down than building up!

While a building can be demolished in a day or two, it takes months or sometimes years to build one. People are like buildings in this context, taking moments to tear down but years to build up. Cancel Culture is an evil practice. Ive had it done to me and it is no fun.

But Christians are called to be different. Really different. We need to be "Him" and "them" focussed. It is important that we ask the Holy Spirit to guide us and help us to be more Christ-like.

Below are a couple of helpful verses in this context.

"So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. 35 Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” (John 13:34-35)

"Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 25 And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near." (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Get ready. Jesus warned of the events in the world immediately before his return and we are seeing all of them!

2 Peter 3:10;
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.

Revelation 16:15;
‘Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.’

Matthew 24:43;
But understand this: if the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.

1 Thessalonians 5:2;
For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.

1 Thessalonians 5:4;
But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

Get ready!

There are over 320 MILLION Christians in the world living under persecution with 70 Christians being murdered for their faith every week. 320 million is the whole population of New Zealand multiplied 64 times! You won’t hear that alarming statistic on headline news, it just doesn't fit the media agenda.

So why get ready? Because Jesus said this would be one of the main signs of His second coming and of the end of the world:

“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me." and, “when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.” (see full verses below)

Dont forget to be at church on Sunday!

(For full verses see Luke 21:11, Mark 13:28, Matthew 11:9-14, Matthew 24:32-35 and Mark 13:34-37)
