SUNDAY CHOICE – That Day at Calvary – By Charles Schokman I stood one day at Calvary, Where Jesus bled and died. I never knew He loved me so; For me He was crucified. And as I stood there in my sin, His love reached down to me; And, oh, the shame that filled my soul, That day at Calvary. I knelt one day at Calvary, My eyes were filled with tears, To think such love I had refused Throughout these wasted years; And as I knelt I heard Him say, “I did it all for thee”; And, oh, the love that filled my soul, That day at Calvary. I prayed one day at Calvary, “I’m Thine forevermore; Forgive me, Lord, for all my sin, My lost estate restore,” And as I prayed, to me He gave Salvation full and free; And, oh, the peace that filled my soul That ...

SUNDAY CHOICE – Are you weary are you heavy laden?- By Charles Schokman Jesus said–“Be still, and know that I am God;–Psalm 46:10 Are you in anyway troubled in Mind, Body or Spirit? Listen to what Jesus has to say:— God’s Longing To the listening ear I speak, to the waiting heart I come. Sometimes, I may not speak. I may ask you merely to wait in My Presence, to know that I am with you. Think of the multitudes who thronged Me when I was on earth all eager for something. Eager to be healed, or taught, or fed. Think as I supplied their many wants, and granted their manifold requests, what it meant to Me, to find amid the crowd, some one or two, who followed Me just to be near Me, just to dwell in My Presence. How some longing of the Eternal Heart was satisfied thereby. ...

The Message of Easter – By Nilan James Source :  Dæhæna – March 2024 Easter is the most important religious festival for Christians. It celebrates Jesus’ victory over death. It defines the beginning and the foundation of Christianity. For Christians, the resurrection is an important treasure. It’s also a great love story. Jesus did not come into the world simply to suffer and die. He came to bring God’s message of unconditional love The Resurrection of Jesus takes us beyond the Cross to the joy and hope that comes from seeing the Risen Lord. Christ risen allowed us to know that there is a future for every human being and that our cry for unending life is indeed answered in Him. This is the true message of Easter! We also have gives us a new sense of certitude, even if when it is very difficult in our lives, even if ...

An Inspirational Message for the Month of February 2024- by Charles Schokman The World’s Rubbish Makes Fertile Ground For The Church To Grow  Ephesians 3:12-13 In [Christ Jesus our Lord] and through faith in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. I ask you, therefore, not to be discouraged because of my sufferings for you, which are your glory. As the Apostle Paul writes this letter from prison in Rome, he is very conscious of the despair and discouragement his dear friends in Ephesus are feeling because of his situation. They would no doubt have been deeply concerned for his personal well-being. But they would also have been ‘reading the times’, and realising from what was happening to their faithful ‘leader/mentor’, that the future was not looking good for them … or for anyone who was responding to the preaching of the Gospel and putting their trust in Jesus as ...

SUNDAY CHOICE – The Longer I Serve Him The Sweeter He Grows. – By Charles Schokman Image Source : slideshare May this hymn, written by William (Bill) Gaither, be found true and real in our own life: Since I started for the Kingdom, Since my life He controls, Since I gave my heart to Jesus, The longer I serve Him, The sweeter He grows. Chorus The longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows, The more that I love Him, more love He bestows; Each day is like heaven, my heart overflows, The longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows. Ev’ry need He is supplying, Plenteous grace He bestows; Ev’ry day my way gets brighter, The longer I serve Him, The sweeter He grows. One of the fascinating things we remember about our Christian life is our ardent passion for God when we had come to know Christ as our ...

SUNDAY CHOICE – Give them all to Jesus – By Charles Schokman Years ago a man name Phil Johnson wrote a song that literally took much of Christianity by storm. It was entitled, ”Give them all to Jesus.” Here are the lyrics: Are you tired of chasing pretty rainbows? Are you tired of spinning round and round? Wrap up all the shattered dreams of your life and at the feet of Jesus lay them down. He never promised you’d always see sunshine. He never promised there’d be no more rain. He only promised a heart from of singing about the very things that once brought pain. Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus; Shattered dreams, wounded hearts, and broken toys. Give them all, give them all, give them all to Jesus; And He will turn your sorrow into Joy. With this lyric, Phil is calling us ...

AWAY IN A MANGER – A Christmas CARD – By Ernest Macintyre Image Source : catholic-daily-reflections NO CRIB FOR A BED Both during Christmas festivities as well as prayers of thanks in the season, a mediating thought can be  that God appeared on earth amongst the poor. Why?  There are some suggestive indicators from which a design may be worked out. It was probably a recognition that the great multitudes on earth were these materially unfortunate people . It is not that the more fortunate classes were neglected by The Lord but as the Bible  quotes Jesus as saying in Luke 18:25 that “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God” It is also in the Qur’an of Islam. The “Eye of the Needle” was in fact a narrow gateway into Jerusalem. Since camels were heavily ...

SUNDAY CHOICE – JESUS NEVER FAILS – By Charles Schokman God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (Numbers 23:19).   What comfort, confidence, and blessed assurance to know that you can trust God with your life! You can depend on Him to take care of you and guide you into your destiny; the destiny of His working! He’s trustworthy, faithful and reliable! He never fails. When you trust in the Lord you shall not be confounded (1 Peter 2:6). That means you’ll never be disgraced or “put to the blush,” for trusting God. The Scripture is replete with testimonies of those who, in defiance of life-threatening circumstances, demonstrated absolute trust and confidence in God and experienced a miracle. The ...
