A week without God

a week without god

Ever since deciding I want to live my life to praise the Lord, I have never considered what life would be like, without the knowledge of his abounding, unending love for us, irrespective of what we have done. God is my strength that keeps me going through the week.

Take some time this week to consider where God stands in your life and I would like to leave you today with the following verse from Paul.

‘I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.’ – Galatians 2:20

Proverbs 18:10

Proverbs 18-10

‘The name of the LORD is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.’ – Proverbs 18:10

Last year, we ran a series of 6 posts, called ‘Bible Verse Tuesday’. Each week we dived deep in God’s word and uncovered incredible, unspeakable promises to us; one Bible verse at a time. The Bible verse above, did not feature in the series.

This verse, is one that all Christians around the world need; we need it today, perhaps, as the world’s never needed it and we’re going to need it every day of our lives. We need this verse because God alone is the one place of safety for His people. Every animal, including ourselves that God has made, has an instinct of self-preservation. God loves us and wants to protect us. He loves us so much, he will leave his 99 sheep to come and find us, the 1 lost sheep. To read a sermon, by the Rev. Maurice Roberts which looks much deeper into the meaning behind this verse, click here.

To finish off, I would like to thank you for taking the time, to read this post and remind you that we upload posts here on RCGhub every Wednesday and Sunday. Also, you can find many other Bible verses like this one and their meaning, on the ‘verses’ page of the blog. Feel free to comment below your favourite Bible verse(s).

New Years Resolutions: Joshua 1:9

As well as the weekly posts on a Sunday morning, covering a range of topics, there is also going to be a weekly post on a Wednesday. This mid-week post will be much shorter and quicker to read. The posts content will range dramatically, week on week, so always look forward to Wednesday’s post!

The tweet  above came from the RCGSocial Twitter account. I’m sure most of you reading this post will be going #backtowork this week. This verse from the book of Joshua, is one of my favourite. All of us go through tough times in our life and everybody deals with stress, change and other things like that is different ways. I personally read this verse and its words remind me that whatever troubles I face in life, I have no reason to ‘be afraid…or dismayed’ because ‘the Lord my God will be with me’ forever and will never leave me. I hope this verse will be as special for you as it is for me.

God is with you – #1

Over the next few weeks there will be a series of posts all about how God is always with you even if you doubt his word. We will dive deep into his word and give verses and the stories they relate. Hopefully is your relationship with God is not great at the moment then this series of post will help your relationship grow strong again.

God, who delivered me from the teeth of the lion and the claws of the bear, will deliver me from this Philistine.” Saul said, “Go. And God will help you!”

– 1 Samuel 17:37

This is the story of David and Goliath. Saul was the king of the Philistine people at this time and in this verse he is reminding David that God will be with him throughout the battle against Goliath.

David was the youngest in his family who’s job it was to protect his fathers sheep in the day and through the night. Often bears and lions would threaten to kill the sheep. It was David’s job to use his sling shot to hit the bear and scare it off.

We can see in this verse that Saul is telling David, that God wants him to know that he has protected him against the teeth of lions and so will protect him against the mighty Goliath.
