If anyone feels that they could inspire my little brother that’s in jail, and be a Godly influence to him. He really needs some penpals and could really use some encouragement and Godly correspondence and hope. Let me know and I’ll give you his info if you wanna write him a letter. If God puts on your heart to write him. But above all that, please pray for him. His name is John. I love him and he has a really good heart, we’ve just been through a lot of stuff in our life and he made mistakes. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me. Matthew 25:36
“Lead Me throughout This Coming Year” We have been reading the opening words of Psalm 90 – a prayer of Moses, the man of God. Do you wish to be a man of God – a woman of God? What are your hopes and prayers and longings for this New Year? Might that be one of them? I learned recently how ‘God’s man’ and a ‘Man of God’ are not necessarily the same thing. As we come before our Creator God, and our loving Saviour, Jesus Christ, what is uppermost in our hearts and minds? When God created man He made us perfect and placed us in a perfect garden – or parkland. I have put you in there to enjoy it - do not spoil it - do not ruin the world I created. Have you ever seen someone's garden which has been ruined by mindless vandals? That happened to God's perfect garden. There are no secrets hidden from God – all you do - all you say - the way we treat people - all that is seen by God, and known to God. Our sins are seen by God - even when we think HE may not be looking. You can decide you are going to give yourself to seeking wisdom - the Bible will enable you to become wise. Let God’s wisdom consume you – and saturate you – and be bathed in the wisdom of God - and people will be amazed when you are called upon to make some vital decision. Perhaps, when they are in some difficulty they may approach you for help - because they know you to be someone who is wise - and you are wise with the wisdom of God. That does not just appear overnight. We have to work at it - and God does not share His secrets with lazy people. Study the Word of God - and become WISE. That can be one goal for these coming weeks and months. Do make sure you are in the Word of God every day – read part of the Bible every day. I keep hearing of some Christians who do not do this. Remember that old poster – that old ‘Wayside Pulpit - “Seven days without the Word makes one weak”. How do you handle time? Many people find they have problems handling money - but even more people find it hard to handle time. Use your time - do not waste it. Verse 10 – This decision was made following Creation when man had fallen and sinned. This is not an aspect of truth which is readily accepted and acceptable – how strange. Some may be totally unaware of it – and will be, if it is not taught in places of worship. I will give them 70 - or 80 years - if they have the strength? The cause of death is SIN. Moses, the man of God has faced up to that. What would you say would fulfil and satisfy you when you reached the end of your life? A happy and useful life! Moses could have said that – but Moses realised that he could have neither without God. Verse 11 – Moses asks the question. Who considers the anger of God? Moses mentions various vital areas in the opening words of Psalm 90 – do check them out. Verse 12 – Teach us – to value our days – we need wisdom. We need YOU to put us in your school in Your classroom. The final section of the Psalm is how to live a happy and useful life. Man wants to be free to live as he chooses! People think God is going to limit us and restrict us - No. Teach us to number or value our days. We need to be taught that. Moses prays for wisdom from GOD. People are talking about making medical advances - and living longer and longer - as if there was no SIN. God has said – God has spoken – God has set the limits - and these cannot be changed. Moses knew there were pleasures and enjoyments away from God. We so need God - and Moses prays that. Have compassion. Be merciful. In verses 13 to 17 – We read of God’s Mercy – RELENT - come back and show us your mercy – remove from us Your Hand of Judgment. Verse 14 – Satisfy us in the morning - and we can be glad all our days. What an offer - our God can satisfy us as no-one else can. Moses would recall how the manna fell in the morning - and nourished the people during that day. Teach us to number our days. Verse 14 – Moses prays for - satisfaction in God. God, bring a new day – let this chapter in our lives come to an end and start a new fresh chapter! As a people – Help us to sing again. Verse 16 – Work in us O God – let the people experience Your favour and Your mercy and Your grace. Verse 17 – Moses prays for transformation by God – put Your hand upon our hand. The wisdom of God is so different from worldly wisdom, and pleasures and riches. The Psalms are not only rich for meditation - but so relevant for our every day living, as disciples of Jesus. In these closing words there is this sense of usefulness – of lasting usefulness – of leading a positive and practical life. We all want to do something worthwhile. We want to do something that will last. People scratch their name on a tree or a piece of stone somewhere - they want their name to last. Before you can do anything useful - you have to be usable. Grace first - His favour first - then He can make what we do useful and valuable. Moses prays for grace – for the favour of God - and he prays that God would show us what He wants us to do. We do not have all the answers – this is where we need humility. God has so much to give us - and when HE gives, HE is so generous. Jesus comes offering us abundant life - life to the full. The Christian Life is NOT something dull and dreary and restricting and limiting - No, it is the very opposite. Ask Jesus to show you what HE wants you to do - with your life - with your talents and abilities and gifts. Yes - make your life count for God - and remember people are watching how you live - and listening to the things you say. Your testimony can be at stake, when you may not realise it. This Psalm, like life, is solemn and serious - though saturated and laced with encouragement and joy and love, and the grace of Jesus Christ. “Loving gracious heavenly Father – I pray about these days and weeks that lie ahead – as I read Your Holy Word, guide me and lead me – help me to find anew, light and direction and wisdom, as I read the Scriptures – put Your Hand upon mine – put Your hand in mine – and take me onward, step by step – in Jesus name I pray. Amen.” (This week's "Word from Scotland" - previous articles may be found at Studylight.org and liveasif.org in the 'Archives' - warmest greetings for 2020, in Christ Jesus.)
Redemption in Christ Jesus enables us in His reconciliation ministry...
When I joined Prison Fellowship Zimbabwe in 2010. I was privileged to know this guy Itai who was by that time in prison serving a life sentence. I was attracted to him when I saw that he was determined and his faith was strong and unshakable. At one time in 2012, I was offered an opportunity to facilitate some Theological Studies in prison on behalf of Harare Theological College (HTC) and this man was party of the 10 students (inmates) who were enrolled to learn the basics of Studying the Word. After serving 26 years in prison, Itai was released on Presidential pardon and this was in 2017. He was incarcerated when he was very young and upon his release the only thing he wishes to have was a family of his own since he had no family member close to help him out. The assumption according to him was that freedom is when you are no longer in chain. Little did he know that he was not free yet because of the reality of his situation confronted to him. A pregnant wife, accommodation, basic needs and unemployed all this was facing him right back and centre. It was really a big challenge for him to break stigma he has to go through. He was disappointed of what he knew about a church. That it is a Body of Christ, forgiving people, loving people etc. It was unfortunate that his definition of a Church was not close to what he knew of a Church of God. His observation made him to feel that the Church that he left in Prison was more of what he expect of a Church. He found it difficult after 26 years of his time in prison to able to identify himself with people. Praise God, one of his dreams was fulfilled and God blessed him with a baby girl Precious, saying this is a precious thing God has given me. He joy was kindled again. Since the day he was released, he never had an opportunity to share with anyone his Story. A man who was on death row and moved to Life and eventually a free man. He visited Prison Fellowship Zimbabwe Office for the first time with his wife and daughter. Part 1

We Do Not Run To Come In First, But To Finish Faithfully - Why would anyone want to become a Christian during these first three centuries? Persecution was fierce and universal. We need to be informed as to how persecution is spreading rapidly today. In the beginning, there was nowhere to hide, and there was no social benefit whatsoever in being disciples of Jesus Christ. These early disciples enjoyed and appreciated communion with God, through Jesus Christ. As they were loved and empowered by God they became salt and light, challenging many forms of darkness. Regarding this calling of God, holy as it, and depending upon our answering His holy call, they discovered it to be all of grace. We too are called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. God seldom calls a person to do what by human ability he is able to do. We see that in the lives of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Gideon and Jeremiah. Read their stories as recorded in the Bible. Almighty God provided them with what they needed, to do what they were called to do. When today’s disciples wonder what it is all about at times, this clear guidance shines – fix your eyes on Jesus. Keep running your race faithfully, and keep your eyes on Jesus who is the trailblazer, the author and finisher of our faith. There are times when the disciple has to make that deliberate decision to look away from all else to Jesus Christ, the Saviour. In the book of Hebrews these disciples knew the meaning of endurance. As they ran their race they were able to overcome various pain barriers – two of which can be ‘growing weary’ and ‘losing heart’. They did not have an easy time. Neither did Jesus Christ. Be prepared for struggles and keep focused and faithful. We do not run to come in first, but to finish faithfully. Read Hebrews Chapters 11 and 12 and be encouraged and strengthened – and nourished from God’s holy Word. When we hear, or read, of men of faith, there is always that element where each acted on the basis of his faith. They did something, obeying God, having taking risks. They were prepared to look foolish, or be regarded as peculiar, and then there came that day when their names appeared in an honours list in the book of Hebrews. They had pleased God. Without faith it is impossible to please God – Hebrews Chapter 11 verse 6. Men and women of faith are encouraged to run the race marked out for them and to run with perseverance and endurance. Is this not the salient and significant evidence of Christian discipleship? God calls us to persevering faith, demonstrating endurance and continuance – a going on. It takes courage to persevere and endure, and the writer to the Hebrews is addressing discouraged disciples. In the military context, perseverance means you stand your ground through all the battlefield dangers, refusing to flee, or run away. In the athletic context, perseverance speaks of not falling back, or dropping out. If the Christian life was regarded as some kind of ‘jolly picnic’ there would be no need for this type of language. The disciple of Jesus was taught to throw off everything that hindered and hampered progress – getting rid of burdens, weights, and sins, that could entrap, ensnare, and entangle. Worry, discouragement, immorality, lust, greed, addiction, fear, and various other emotions, can be impediments which disable disciples in the heat of the battle. Many things may be legitimate, but the Christian soldier lays them aside as he prepares and runs the race marked out. AGON is the word used for race from which we get ‘agony’, implying self control in every area of life – a disciplined disciple. Is that you? Let me encourage you in these times to keep running – to persevere and endure – so that you may finish faithfully. “Lord God Almighty – as we bow before You in Worship and Praise – and with thanksgiving for all that we have in Christ Jesus – help us serve with perseverance and endurance. Rid me of whatever might hinder and hamper – so that I might fight the good fight – finish the race – and keep the faith. Lord, I realise that if I do not keep the faith, it will be difficult to fight the good fight and finish the race – so help me – risen, living, loving Jesus. Amen.” (This week's "Word from Scotland" - previous articles may be found at Studylight.org and liveasif.org - in the 'Archives' section - every prayerful blessing.)
