Comments: Power to become children of God

Andrew

Thank you for these thoughts - I have often been drawn to the scriptures of not only those of adoption in to the family of the Father but also the call to live as a true son that accepts his father's guidance and discipline to follow His ways. What is means to love the Father and the Lord Jesus.

Before Cameron lectures people about Christian values, he should actually read the Bible and see what it says about the poor.

When we preach this and try to live this, then churches begin to fill.

Thanmk God - that this power to become the Children of God - is entirely in God's hands, and is not left up to individual churches to determine! Otherwise, the outlook might be rather discouraging for some.

When this is preached and an attempt made to live it, then slowly churches fill.

We are churchy types so easy to lose perspective.

Don't lets get too hung up on church-going - most people wont and never have but GOD is every where.

Jesus in the gospels doesnt urge much church-going either. The Commonwealth of Heaven breaking in to ordinary life, right now, all around us seems to be his message.

The earth is the Lord's and its fullness.

The spirit bloweth where it listeth.
