“Fruit” of the Spirit….

OPAL'S JOURNAL - "TO KNOW GOD" ......

Image

“The Fruit of the Spirit”-
not something made, manufactured or engineered…
They are the results of a life of Faith created by God.
We do not produce it by our own effort.
We cannot purchase it from another.
Neither is it a reward for good deeds;

The love of God manifested in His people draws like a magnet.
The demonstration of God’s love to us motivates us to love others.
We come to God because none of us have it in ourselves –
to acquire any of these qualities on our own.

We cannot make ourselves Joyful –
Find Peace-Be Patient-Gentle or Kind-
Be Faithful or show self control –
Not without God being in our lives –
 Because these qualities manifest God’s character.

Please help me to model Your love and values to those around me.

God’s Love.. {SQLD Start of Big Camp}

Plans

*****

“He who does not LOVE does not know God-
for God is Love.” 1 John 4 : 8

“For God so loved the world
that He gave His only begotten Son …..
whoever believes in Him
shall have eternal life.”  John 3:16

Today is the start of “Big Camp” South QLD.
Hope it will be a Blessed Week-
for the many “Happy Campers” who attend this week.

Every one is responsible for how we use
the choice of ‘Free choice”.
Hope we choose to accept Christ’s Sacrifice.

Although God hates sin he loves the sinner.
That is why Christ died for the Universe. It is at Calvary  that we find
the mightiest  manifestation of GOD’S LOVE.
Our part is to share with others what God has done for us.

Blessed Sabbath!

The Lord is with me

From Small Beginnings…

***Singing                                                                                          ****

“Arise, shine:  for your light has come! … ” Isiah 60 : 1

In 1844 the first Sabbath-observing
Adventist group came into being.
On May 21 -1863 in Battle Creek, Michigan,
that the First General Conference was organized
and adopted -to this day. {Every 5 Years.}

From that small beginning,
a worldwide movement began.
What a vision for our pioneers?

Ellen G White said  – “I looked intensely over the world,
and I began to see jets of light like stars
dotted all through this darkness,
and then I saw another and another added light,
and so through this darkness the
starlike lights were increasing.”

And the angel said  – “These are they that believe
on the Lord Jesus Christ;
and obey the words of Christ-
These are the Lights of the world.”

“And I saw then theses little jets
and from the north to the south –
and the east to the west-
and finally lightening the whole world.”
{Selected Messages, book1}

This is going to be an amazing
fulfillment of this Prophecy.

The Commission is -“Go ye into all the world –
and spread the gospel.” Just work where you are!

HAPPY SABBATH!!

Fathers’ Day Tribute!

restore to me..

***

As a FATHER pities his children
so the Lord pities those who fear Him ..”
Psalms 103 :13

        ****

In each young child’s life,
To mould and shape them to become
A follower of Christ
To show them the Father’s heart
And help them understand
How God’s Fathers have a special role
love can be their guide
As they take Him by the hand.

In the Parable of the Prodigal Son-
“The Father saw him and had compassion
and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.” {Luke 15:20}
That father was never able to forget his wayward son.
Every day the old man focused on the horizon.
What a joyful moment it was when the
father and son were reunited.

Many sons and daughters have been wounded
in the battle with sin.
But the heavenly Father never gives up.
Day and night He is calling them home.
His eyes eagerly search the horizon
for evidence that one is returning.
