Colin's Wise Wednesday - 14th August 2019

Daily dying and living!!!!!! What’s that all about Colin? In 1 Peter 2:24 it says “He Himself bore sins in His body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness”. We know Jesus died for our sins but don’t you think His death is also intended to lead us in our own daily dying to sin and living to righteousness, living in the image of Christ? The only One without sin suffered and died so we sinners could be justified. Shouldn’t His death encourage us to try as best we can, with God’s help, to live a Christ inspired life?

“Wow you were fantastic, how did you manage that?” Do we keep the glory or do we pass it on?

“I won’t last a day without you”
Does this opening line ring a bell with you?  While thinking of what to say this week I heard the Carpenters song of long ago with the title, “I won’t last a day without you”.
 
Let your hope keep you joyful, be patient in your troubles, and pray at all times.

“Once upon a time”…do you remember fairy tales started off with these words? My story is not a fairy tale but it was a long time ago when my legs were a lot stronger and I used to do a lot of running (I know Colin you have told us that often recently!!!!). At that time I tried to combine my love for running with my love for the boys. We used to go on what we called a “run ride”. Dad did the running and the boys rode on their bicycles. It worked out well for my training in that on level ground it was easy for the boys and easy for Dad. We knew that we were together but did not rely on each other. When the up hills came the dynamics changed. The pace slowed down. The boys needed help, it was then that they felt a push. My hand was pressed against the small of their back. They needed help and Dad was there for them, “just relax Dad is here to help you, we are nearly at the top”.
 
For the gospel reveals how God puts people right with Himself : it is through faith from beginning to end.

Colin's Wise Wednesday - 17th July 2019

“Hi Jesus, Colin here”…….. how do you start your prayers? Do you introduce yourself to God? Or do you come to God with formal words of praise, thanks and petition wondering if you are getting it right? Or do you approach God with familiarity, expecting to be heard? This was a topic of a recent devotion that I read. The husband’s prayer was: “God, please, please, please, please, PLEASE help us!” After praying the husband was cheerful expecting to be heard and wondering what was for breakfast while the wife praying about the same concern with her formal prayer of praise thanks and petition moped around still worried if she had got it right.

A WEEK OF DRAMA– 12th July 2019
Welcome back to another instalment of a “Week in Pictures” at Tanda Tula Safari Camp. While we have had some heart ache over the last week due to the unfortunate loss of one of the Zebenine lionesses during an altercation with the Mayambula Pride (last weeks blog post), the Timbavati continues to provide incredible game viewing! The fantastic rains that summer brought have set the Greater Kruger on track for a good winter with the grass, still thick and full on nutrients. The trees are still holding massive amounts of foliage and those that aren’t have an ample bed of nutrients right beneath them which means the wildlife sightings have been superb!  
 
But the time is coming and is already here, when by the power of God’s Spirit people will worship the Father as He really is, offering Him the true worship that He wants.

I hear two voices. One positive the other negative. How do I react to them? Is my response the same? Do I hear God’s voice/message in both? Let me tell you my story.

Thanks Ron and Cam’ for your choice of songs on Sunday which gave me the idea for this devotion. Wow I have enjoyed putting it together. The one was the hymn “Breathe on Me Breath of God” that Ron preached on and “Draw me Close to You” was a chorus that Cam’ had chosen. On “playing” around with the titles one can easily intersperse the title of the hymn and the chorus and they fit perfectly (please try it).
 
Those who proclaim God’s message speak to people and give them help, encouragement and comfort.
