 Your Rhema Verse of the Day:

phil 3v 10 to 11

"Know" is the Greek verb ginōskō, "to arrive at a knowledge of someone or something -- know, know about, make acquaintance of." This knowledge is not some cryptic enlightenment, but a growing personal relationship. A real knowledge of who someone is. Paul expresses here that he wants to know Christ in his fullness even if it is sometimes painful, even if it costs him something. 

He longs not only to know Christ, but also: he seeks to experience God's power the same power that resurrected Christ. We celebrate this victory at Easter time which is around the corner and when Christ returns we will experience the resurrection of our bodies. Whether we've been buried, or cremated, or still alive at Christ's appearing it doesn't matter. God's power will create for us new resurrection bodies and that is something to be excited about!

Christ's physical body was raised on the third day; the tomb was empty. The disciples could touch him, feel his hands and feet, and observe him eat food. The physical. But it was more. Jesus in his resurrection body entered locked rooms and ascended into heaven. We Christians are promised a new body by God, who "will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body"

Do you long to know Jesus better - really know him? That is my longing, too, so today let us pray this prayer. Lord Jesus, We look forward to these new and refreshed bodies and in the meantime we pray that you draw us closer to you, into a deeper relationship that fills that thirst for the living water that only you provide.

Wakeups and Motivation for Monday (or anyday!)

 
Americon Idol Auditionee Shay really inspired us today.

Shayy, 17-years-old, was declared legally blind a year ago, but she didn’t let her condition stop her from pursuing her dreams.

The Virginian teen went to an eye doctor after having a problem with her eyesight thinking that she needed eyeglasses. It turned out that she had a more serious problem. The doctor sent her to the Emergency Room where she found out that she has a hydrocephalus that caused swelling of her optic nerve. Her doctors discovered that she had a tumor on her brain. The American idol contestant underwent surgery to remove half of the tumor that was discovered. The other half of the tumor was too dangerous to be removed so they decided not to risk Shayy’s life. She is what they call a question mark but we know that there is nothing uncertain about her future and with a voice like that she is going to go far. Her attitude, her gifting and her story is simply inspiring!

 Your Rhema Verse of the Day:

rev 7 v 9

 

From Revelation 7:9 in the ESV

 

"After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,"

There is such power in unity and diversity- many people coming together to form different parts of the body. We love that New Zealand is a multicutural country founded on integration and Christian values of loving one another with our Lord Jesus at the forefront.

Unfailing Love

All the links for our show for Friday, 29th March 2019!


Love that's unfailing

 

His love for you is holy — totally separate from any human love — because it is: Pure, Sacrificial (Jesus laid down his very life for you), Unchanging – in the past (because he loved you before you were born), in the present (even when you make mistakes), and into eternity (when his love will be experienced in a heavenly way), and Unfailing. Never will he stop loving you. See romans 8:38- 39"... neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord..  nothing in this world that can stop me from loving you. No matter what you do, nothing can separate you from my love."

Surely as the land meets the sea his love is seen all through the wonder of creation. And everything our Lord says and does comes from a heart of holy, perfect love.

Go Forth Dan and Shine!
We'll miss you Dan - youre an absolute legend!
