Every Monday morning!
Faith to believe
Romans 1:17 tells us that the just shall live by faith. Who are the just? The just are those who give their lives to Jesus. Those who have repented, had their sins forgiven, believe by faith and are justified by Him! We are saved by Grace through faith in Him! Be blessed by this message!
Angus tells us God is not interested in how rich we are or what position we hold in life He wants us to be humble. A humble person always puts others before themselves. A humble person does not think they are more important than the next but treats others with respect and love and honour!
Angus reads from Mark 9 about the Mount of Transfiguration and tells us how precious it is for us to spend time with the Lord, “on the mountain” so to speak, but we can’t stay there. We need to go into the world and spread the Good News of the love of Jesus by what we say, by our lifestyle, by setting a Godly example to others and most importantly by introducing them to Him!
Angus reminds us that the family is so precious to the well being of a nation and God loves the family unit to the point of death on the cross. So much of the evil that exists in the world today results from children growing up in a broken or dysfunctional home and then growing into an adult who is unable to function normally in life. There is nothing you can do about your past but starting today with Jesus in your life you can change for the good!
Salt and light
Angus refers to Revelation 3:16 and reminds us that in God’s Kingdom there is no place for mediocre Christians. We are either living all out and unashamedly for God or we are not a Christian. The Bible warns us in Mathew 5:13 that we are the salt of the earth which means we flavour the world with the love of Jesus however if we lose our saltiness, we are good for nothing but to be cast out and trampled underfoot. Be salty for Jesus Christ and make a difference in the world!
Angus says it doesn’t matter who you are or what you have accomplished in life, God has no favourites. From the poorest, uneducated peasant who gives his life to Jesus to the most famous person we can think of who ever lived. Jesus died for each one of us and as long as we surrender our hearts to Him we are all the same in His eyes. Perhaps you think you’re disqualified because you’ve lived a sinful life and God cannot possibly love you, Angus says all you have to do is repent, invite Jesus into your life and He will forgive you and make you into a new being!
Angus tells us that if we are discontent and always want more than we have then that is greed and it will destroy us. 1 Corinthians 13 tells us what we should be striving for and that’s love. Love for our fellow man and when we put others first and have the fruit of the Spirit overflowing from our hearts, then we’ll have peace in our lives!
God knows men
In this episode of Grassroots, Angus reads from Micah 7 and tells us to put our trust in God and not man because people will always disappoint and cannot be trusted. Only God is perfect and can always be trusted in any situation we may face in life. We must love and forgive one another even when we feel let down, just as God loves us! Be blessed by this message.
The Word of God
The Holy Bible is still the best selling book ever in the world. Why, because it’s not just printers ink on paper but it is the Holy Spirit inspired, living Word of God. It is truth. It is Jesus in print and it teaches us how to live a life pleasing to God. Angus tells us that everything we need to know about as a Christian is in this book and God has said, “Heaven and earth will pass away but My Word will never pass away”! Spend time in the Bible, it’s the most important thing you’ll ever do.
Master of the wind
Angus refers us to Mark 4 where Jesus calmed the wind and storm. There is no need to live with fear and worry about what’s going on in the world or what may happen tomorrow. Jesus says we should be still and know that He is God. Take your eyes off the world and put all your trust in Him and be at peace. Be blessed as you listen to this message!
A helper (Part 3)
In conclusion of this series on, “The helper” Angus says the family is of utmost importance to God. So much of what is wrong in the world today is the result of children growing up in a broken or dysfunctional home. Put God first, then your spouse and then your children and you will have a strong family with a Godly moral compass! Then go out and be a blessing to others!
A helper (Part 2)
Angus says that a husband and wife are one unit with separate roles. That means that in the home there are things that men need to take care of and things that women need to do. Spend time with each other. Pray for your spouse, speak life and not death to each other, support, encourage and love one another and God will bless your marriage and your family too!
A Helper (Part 1)
When you were a little child your father and mother were everything to you. A hero, a protector, a comforter and a provider until the day when you met Jesus for yourself. Children look up to you and model themselves on you and you need to be very careful not to break that trust that they have in you. Jesus is our Helper, our Saviour and our Protector. Put you trust in Him because He will never let you down. He is the same yesterday, today and forever!
There is immense power in personal testimony. Why? Because it happened to you and no one can say it didn’t happen. It was between you and God and when you share it with others you are actually sharing the power of God’s Word with them. Why not share your testimony of God’s goodness with someone today!
Cream of the crop
Hebrews 13:8 tells us that, “Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever.” Jesus never changes. He can be relied on and trusted in everything and at any time. Angus says that God is moving among the young people of the world in a mighty way and we need to pray for them and trust that they will follow the Lord as they grow up into adulthood. May this message be a blessing to you!
