Does Satan love Jesus?

Isn’t a follower of Jesus somebody who simply acknowledges him as ‘Lord’ and behaves as though this is so? Is that what God really wants from us?

If you answered ‘yes’, then what is the problem with Satan?…

‘When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, ”What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beg thee, torment me not.” ‘ Luke 8:28

Here is external worship. The devil is religious; he prays: he prays in a humble posture; he falls down before Christ, he lies prostrate; he prays earnestly, he cries with a loud voice; he uses respectable, honourable, adoring expressions – ‘Jesus, thou Son of God most high’… Nothing was wanting but love. (From The Good God by Mike Reeves, 2012)

Becoming a follower of Jesus causes a change in heart, rather than simply a change in actions. God wants our love, not for us to mindlessly carry out religious acts because we feel we have to. I dread to think of a God who gets kicks out of that.

The triune God is a million miles away from a ‘policeman in the sky’. I’ll be posting more on this at some point…

The time is NOW.

This time last year:

I thought Christianity was dull.

I thought it was irrelevant.

I thought it was untrue.

Have you ever thought about how we’re passengers of time?

It picks us up… And at some point, time lets us go and carries on it’s way.

The only thing that remains constant with time is the truth.

But have you ever stopped and considered, what is really true?

Jesus said ‘I am the way, the truth and the life…’

What kind of nutter goes around saying stuff like that??… Is there really any truth to his claim?

What do you make of beauty?

Do you ever look around and think WOW, isn’t this place beautiful??

Why is it that we can be left breathless when we see, for example, the sun setting over the horizon? Or a misty waterfall?

Even finding out how these things work scientifically doesn’t strip nature of its splendour!

How can we ‘meaningless pieces of protoplasm’ be filled with such awe?

Could it be a pointer that we’re more than that?

A pointer to God… A living stamp of His magnificence!

Tay road bridge (last week)… One reason to get up early in the morning!

‘He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.’ (Ecclesiastes 3:11)
