Daily challenges from the Word of God by Raymond McGough

Posted on October 14, 2010 at 7:46 PM


Ephesians5:3 Our flesh. Your flesh and my flesh is always the enemy. What is it? That which comes from our human intellect the things we desire and want. There is always a battle between what my spirit would want of me and my old nature. I know what I like. But it is not always the things that please God. Paul the apostle is quite aware of this problem and it continues to be a problem of Christ’s church. F...

Daily challenges from the Word of God

Ephesians 5:2 I was speaking of walking in the love of Christ our Lord.

Enshrined in the word love. Astoundingly while we were yet sinners God was reconciling you and I to...

The love of our Lord and Saviour abides in you and me. We are to walk in that love. The evangelist uses the present tense, “...Walk in love,” In his first letter to the church at Thessalonica Paul elaborates on what he speaks of here. As a man of God I believe he was capable of a number of roles... Apostle, chu...

A challenge for us today by Raymond McGough

Posted on October 11, 2010 at 6:06 PM

Ephesians.5.1 writing to the Christians at Ephesus the apostle Paul gives them a challenge to imitate God. To be like God. A challenge to you and me. We are not God, but God lives inside of each true believer. To qualify what I am saying here you have to be born of the Spirit of God to be able to understand what the apostle is writing of.(Jn.3.3) Jesus answered and said to him, “ Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born from above, he cannot see the kingdo...

Posted on August 10, 2010 at 7:03 PM


There is a word that has gripped me with fear,

A word which I always dreaded to hear,

The doctor said “Your husband has cancer in his kidney,”

That dreaded moment that could have filled me with dismay.

But my trust is in th...

God loves the nations of this world

Posted on February 27, 2010 at 7:25 PM

Hab 1:5 "Look around at the godless nations. Look long and hard. Brace yourself for a shock. Something's about to take place and you're going to find it hard to believe. MSG

  God is the God of the breakthrough. I believe He wants to break through in all the nations of the world prior to the Lord's return. Revival like never before is on it's way.
