The air was cool with a slight breeze wafting through the trees. The forest was quiet with no sounds from birds and animals now as they bedded down for the night, hiding in their places, waiting. I looked up and the moon was surrounded by a halo, a ring of colours. I prayed, the events of the day were heavy on my heart and I wanted direction in how to respond.
What is exhortation, but to encourage a person in the walk of faith. As I walk through the forest and pray I feel Gods presence. Surely our walk, our daily walk must be to keep this presence near and yet the world drags our minds and emotions into the world, some days more than others.
Church is a struggle, especially lately. How do we present God to families and children that may be hearing about Jesus for the first time. Clearly and simply – as milk to babes as Paul says in his letters.
I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able;1 Corinthians 3:2
We need to teach the next generation the basics. We need to believe the bible is the inspired WORD OF GOD. God wants us to teach His Word, but in order to teach it we really need to understand it and believe in it.
