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."

One of the re-occurring conversations i have with other parents is in regards to teaching our kids about Jesus. I have struggled so much with this, often starting something, then missing a couple of nights, going back to it and so on and so on. This week i'm posting a series of thoughts about this issue.

What Material To Do?
I remember a few years ago sitting across the table from Thabiti Anyabwile and in his servant manner he asked how he could speak into my life. My question was how to teach my kids. His response was simple but genius. He told me that the 'what to do' is the easy bit - God has provided His Word for just that. It's the doing it that is the real problem.

You know what, he was right. If we can't find the right devotional book or workbook to lead our kids through we still have the Bible! The main book that all others only point to. It really is that simple when it comes to what to do.

It's consistently doing it that is the main problem, for me, and i'm guessing for you!
That's what i'll post on tomorrow . . .

We actually have 3 of these small folders, originally they were for all the tracts, but with the arrival of the Ehret which folds on average 100,000 tracts per hour these were understandably set to the side.
Today they are used for overprints or missionary newsletters etc. So if you or your church order tracts with your address on the back, after being printed on the Minolta & trimmed on the guillotine they are folded here.

The eurofold is usually operated by Junior Hilland or Stephen Roberts.

Mort was the very first Discworld novel i ever read. For those with a particular sense of humour (my wife calls it odd) Terry Pratchett​ caused a lot of laughter.

I've been a Christian for around 18 years now and i've listened a lot of sermons by various speakers, pastors and preachers. But some stand out in my mind and their helpfulness has been ongoing.

About 15 years ago a few of us were big style into John MacArthur and to this day we would all agree that his sermon on knowing God's will was a pivotal moment in our lives. Of course we've all grown and would probably have extra things to add to it but for me, and others i know, it is probably the no1 most influential & helpful sermons we've heard.

Here's an amazing thing i only noticed today - John MacArthur preached this sermon in 1972 (6 years before i was even born).


I'd have to add John Piper's message Boasting Only In The Cross Of Christ as another that, hugely impacted me back in my young Christian days and has still ripples running through the pool of my life.


What Sermons have helped you over the years - what stands out among all the others you've listened?
"No man is good who thinks that he cannot be better.
He has no holiness who thinks that he is
holy enough." (C.H. Spurgeon)
