the believers rule of three

Over the last few days the opportunities God has brought my way have been exciting and interesting...

Over the weekend I was preparing for an interview with the regional Higher Education College for a role as a lecturer in construction. To join other educators training young people from 16-19 years old in a career in building and construction. It culminated in 5 hours at the college yesterday where I had to do a "mini-teach" in front of the interviewing panel and then a case study and a formal interview...I'll know today or tomorrow if this is the opportunity God wants for me to take..I was shortlisted during the day to the last 2 candidates...

Another privilege is the new youth work which my wife and I are preparing to launch later this month....praying and talking to our core youth of about 5 students it's a time of visioning and preparing how it will glorify God and establish a safe place for young people to explore the reality of a life submitted to and relationship with Christ..

And last but not least..I was in the church sanctuary last night moving and setting up the pc and projector so we can worship without the Overhead Projector..I ended up putting the screen on the seat of the 100 year old organ(we don't use it at present)..I'm not sure the Dissenters if they saw the screen would mind..their sole purpose was to worship the Lord freely and live in the truth of the priesthood of all believers...

I've been reading Spurgeon this week.. a book my Mum gave me called "Prayer & Spiritual Warfare" In the chapter "The Power of Prayer and the Pleasure of Praise" Spurgeon writes....

talking about Paul he says "We find him computing by the Believers Rule of Three: he argues from the past to the present and from the present to things yet to come.....1 Cor 1:10 "Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us". Because God is "the same yesterday, and today, and forever" (Heb 12:13)

Listen to what Spurgeon says next:
"His love in time past is an infallible assurance of His kindness today, and an eqaully certain pledge of His faithfulness tomorrow, whatever our circumstances may be, however perplexing our path may be, and however dark our horizon".

Amen, Amen, Amen....
