The Past

…Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9b-11 (NIV)

A Little Understanding – Climate Protection (Part 3)

Satan will use whatever he can to work toward his goal of death and destruction. It isn’t always as obvious as a pitchfork holding, cattle hooved, evil looking creature showing up outside the Christ follower and the collective of Christ follower’s house.

Shepherds and Sheep

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.  Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. Romans 12:1-3 (NIV)

I Am Peter

I am not really Peter, my name is Dave, Dave Peever which has led to people who did not hear properly or who were not paying attention to call me Peter. I assume it is the last name that causes the brain to fill in the name Peter but that doesn’t really matter. Even though I go by the name Dave Peever, for this post I am Peter.

Love With Eternity In Mind

When we love our neighbour by meeting their needs, we shine a light on ourselves. When we love our neighbour by meeting their needs in Jesus’ name, we shine the light on Jesus.

“Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water IN MY NAME [Jesus] because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose their reward.” Mark 9:41 (NIV)
