John 1:1-3 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)
The Word became flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
I don’t think I have to comment about God’s Creation as you will see and hear this video says it all. God did create some wonderful sights, nature , and animals.
Even we humans as we all know were created in his image even although some don’t believe. It is my prayer (as I hope it is fellow Christians reading this) that they pray for any non believers they may know.
What Comes Next?
There is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord . . . will award to me on that day.
Today’s Scripture & Insight: 2 Timothy 4:1–8
On the night of April 3, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King gave his final speech, “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop.” In it, he hints that he believed he might not live long. He said, “We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn’t matter with me now. Because I’ve been to the mountaintop. And I’ve looked over. And I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. . . . [But] I’m happy tonight. I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.” The next day, he was assassinated.
The apostle Paul, shortly before his death, wrote to his protégé Timothy: “I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. . . . Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day” (2 Timothy 4:6, 8). Paul knew his time on earth was drawing to a close, as did Dr. King. Both men realized lives of incredible significance, yet never lost sight of the true life ahead. Both men welcomed what came next.
Like them, may we “fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
Out of the darkness
They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
These days we here a lot from people saying ‘Oh I can’t afford this or that’ because it’s to expensive. But what do we do if our car needs a major repair or our washing machine breaks down The car’s repair may cost ‘ a small fortune’, where as if it’s a washing machine or something else like the TV they can either be repaired or they may have reached the point of not being repaired in which case a new one has to be bought.
In the clip below we hear Jesus (Robert Powell) tell the man in the crowd “You cannot serve two masters ‘God and money'”

Ask us – How Do I forgive? Should I forgive? — Don’t Lose Hope
Two years ago, I learned that my husband had been having an affair with a woman in one of his overseas offices. This had been going on for about 10 years before I found out – although others in the company knew of the affair. He has ended things and we have tried to move […]Ask us – How Do I forgive?
