REVIEW:The very worst missionary?

JamieBlogHeader.pngI first discovered Jamie’s Christian blog while on a list of the top 20 Christian blogs. Since reading many of Jamie Wright’s posts on a range of different topics, I thought I would share her blog. As it states on her ‘About’ page, she writes about a number of different topics which effect many of us in our daily lives.

“I’m not about leading. But I am about instigatingI’d rather we walk alongside each other in this life, than one in front of the other. But, if I see that you need a push, I’ll get behind you… and I hope you’ll do the same for me.”

Her posts are very down to earth, truthful and contain personal stories, very easy to connect with. Some of my favourite posts on her blog include:

She concludes on her ‘about’ page my saying, “I’m about second chances. I’m learning to be more about Jesus and less about me. It’s way harder than it sounds.” There is so much truth in what she says, that applies to every one of our lives. I really do recommend you check out her blog; you won’t regret it.

“With God, all things are possible”

Matthew 19:26

I would like to leave you this Sunday with another great Bible verse. If you would like to read Wednesday’s post on New Years Resolutions, which includes a Bible verse very special to me, then click here. If you were looking for a longer post, then this week, there will be a longer post, next Wednesday.

“With God, all things are possible” – Matthew 19:26

I believe that many millions of people around the world don’t know the extent of this verses meaning and the truth behind it. Look at it today; what does this verse mean for you?

Christmas Myths Debunked – #22

As Christmas has become more and more commercialized people have turned the Christmas story into a nice story which can be used to sell things to people. Today we are going to look at a few myths surrounding the Christmas story.

Mary rode a  donkey to Bethlehem.

The bible doesn’t mention how Mary and Joseph got to Bethlehem it is possible they went by donkey but there are many other possibilities.

Jesus was born in a stable.

People think that Jesus must have been born in a stable because he was put in a manger although the bible does talk about a manger it doesn’t mention a stable. It would most probably be a basement style room were the animals were kept under houses.

Jesus was born on December 25th.

This is highly unlikely as the shepherds were sleeping outside  and this was normally between spring and autumn. Although the bible doesn’t not specifically say he was most probably born in September.

Jesus didn’t cry.

The bible doesn’t report this and the fact that he was both God and Human would suggest that he would cry as it is important that babies cry.

Three kings visited Jesus on camels.

The bible does talk about Magi from the east coming however does give a number or mention camels. The number three has derived from the gifts given by the magi.

I hope you have learnt something and have a great day.

3 sleeps to go!
