Yes I’m short and rather stout Often warm and move about Like a teapot with it’s spout From which tea, will then fall out Pour hot water or milk first Tea bag in and quench your thirst So your body you’ll sustain Without loss, it is all gain With God’s Word, it’s just the same Grow in it and bless His name Water, needs tea to flavour Alone, Christ is our Saviour Just like tea Christ brewed to serve Matured in wisdom and verve In favour with God and man In obedience with God’s plan
Poured His blood to save mankind So His truth we then can find To the Word of Life hold fast Through your lifetime make it last A drink offering like Paul In your faith, move on, don’t stall Be God’s child, suffer no blame Be innocent, show no shame Yes a teapot I may be To serve others to be free From the badness of this world Making Gospel flow and heard Short for gossip, guard your mouth For His Word be bold and stout So of mercy be the pot Be His voice and His light spot
Luke 2:41-52; Philippians 2: 1-17; 1 John 1: 1-10; Romans 9: 20-23.
Soon is Summer season and most of us plan a break and how to relax... Likewise children will be looking forward to Summer holidays. One would say how does this relate to praying for our children in church? Any holiday or relaxing period tends to make us loose focus from the daily routine and normal life, as we do not stop to relax often. We should pray that as we and our children relax and take breaks in the Summer period, we use this time to focus more on prayers and make every opportunity to keep as close to Jesus, more than ever. We should pray that as a family, we will not fall to the temptation of being lazy…especially in our spiritual life.
In this verse, two important words are of utmost importance: appeal and watch. In Romans, appeal is used four times. The first three are referring to Paul's heart-cry towards different aspects of the believer's dedication to God and each other. The word stressed the importance of serving-commitment, exhortation, and collective prayers. The final use is Paul's heart crying to the church to watch out for those who bring false doctrine. Today we have many false preachers claiming that doctrine is not important. What is important is that we love each other and do not judge others. Besides, if one judges a preacher, he or she is going against the “anointed” of the Lord. However, this is not so. False doctrine comes from the devil, and we should refuse the person bringing it. It is not a sign of lack of love to a “brother.” Whoever delivers false doctrines is of the devil and not from the Holy Spirit. The word watch (skopeō) commands the church to look out for, mark, and point to false ministers. The commandment is to avoid them. Today, the internet is full of false and erroneous preaching and teaching. We need to keep in mind that the Holy Spirit did not give the local church Facebook or YouTube to learn our Bible. Instead, He gave apostles, prophets, evangelists, and pastoral teachers. They are the ones designated to give account to our souls. False teachers will give account for their misuse of God's Word and impersonating as ministers of God.

WOL Marriage Devotion
Many times, arguments become fiery because one of the spouses, or both, think they are wiser than the other. Of course, this adds fuel to the fire. However, this does not need to be, even if one really is wiser than the other on a participle issue. If one feels wiser and more understanding, then one’s conduct and behavior are manifested in that of the Holy Spirit, which includes the attitude of one not feeling superior to the spouse. Spouses must see that all their thoughts, words and works fulfill the duty God has assigned to them. It is no small thing to lay aside one determination for the sake of another. But in marriage, it is worth it, if not an obligation. It requires all one’s
wisdom, all one’s determination, all one’s patience and commitment toward the marriage. It is much more than ever one has by nature, yet it is by grace, internally deposited by the Holy Spirit. Jesus’ grace is always sufficient for the couple. “All things,” you know, “are possible to him that believes” (Mark 9:23). By faith, then, “put on the Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 13:14), “put on the whole armor of God” (Ephesians 6:11), and you will be able to glorify Him in all your words and works. Yes, to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ! Therefore, next time you feel you know it all, be wise and understanding towards your spouse and let your conduct show His grace.  REFLECTION: How much grace do you show to your spouse when an “I am wiser than thou” situation arises? Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works  JAMES 3:13
