A rambling blog by a Christian in Northern Ireland

"If you find me short in things, impute that to my love of brevity. If you find me besides the truth in anything, impute that to my infirmity. But if you find anything here that serves to your furtherance and joy of the faith, impute that to the mercy of God bestowed on you and me."

Today i spent roughly most of my day removing a shaft from the Palamides, replacing bearings inside the shaft and then rebuilding the machine. It was a dirty, greasy and painful job as it was akward to work in and my hand kept hitting off other parts of the machine (poor me).

There weren't many tracts run through the machine and probably only 1/3rd of what is normaly run through it in a day. But repairs are needed to keep production going.

We can find our Christian lives a little like that - God begins to work on an area of our life and other aspects seem to stop. Perhaps we need to step back from areas of service in order for God to repair us, restore us, revive us and re-egnite the fire in our hearts for Him; before using us further in His service and for His glory.

When God does draw us aside and begins working on us, we know that it is because He loves us and is preparing us to glorify Him.

On my instagram for my pics etc of Revival Movement i've started posting little 15second clips of some of the machines.

I have a fair bit of content on this blog and thought i would repost a few things every so often. One of the things i always find a blessing is a good testimony. So a number of years ago i interviewed various people connected with Revival Movement. These could probably do with being updated but i think you will enjoy them:

I was listening Dr Mike Reeves talk about Scripture last week and one thing he said provoked me to think and mention it in conversations which led to discussions.

He reckoned that the biggest reason we don't read our Bibles is because we approach it with a 'me' motive:

What does God want ME to know?
What should I do?
How does this apply to ME?

When in actual fact the entire book is not about us, it is about Jesus and should draw our focus off us and onto Him. Yes it has lessons for us and addresses us in many ways but our motive for opening the book ought not to be about 'me' but about knowing Him of whom it is all written.

One of my friends was pretty strong in his explaination of why people struggle to read the Bible and reckons it is because they are not saved. Harsh? Maybe? But it's worth considering.

What are your thoughts on why we dont read our Bible?
