Ps 30:6. Maybe this morning means more weeping 4u. But one morning every tear will be wiped away & today is another day closer #EnjoyYourDay
You are God’s possession. There Might be a hostile takeover. But only if they can outbid the blood of God- Acts 20:28 #EnjoyYourDay
Arguments against the Christian God are also arguments against hope since only the God of the Bible offers a lasting future for this world.
Rejecting Christianity cannot liberate you, expand your world or put you on the right side of history - the very opposite.
“I will not leave u as orphans, I will come to u.” #John14 The Spirit brings us the presence of Jesus & adoption b4 the Father #EnjoyYourDay
The Spirit brings us into what He has enjoyed eternally - the Son's communion with the Father #HappyPentecostSunday

Again and again we’re told that God’s Face shines on us. (Eg Num6; Ps80) In Jesus, God beams at you. #EnjoyYourDay
We've come through Easter to Pentecost, what's next? Trinity Sunday of course because 'Trinity' means reflecting on the God of the gospel
It's how we treat God too... https://t.co/Lls8RLnmNM

You can’t undo the past but Jesus has covered it and is now transforming the mess. It really is onwards and upwards #EnjoyYourDay
For the Christian, sin is not so much against the law as against your very being.
"We don't so much want it 2b illegal, we want it 2b unthinkable" <- A Good slogan 4 campaigners in public square. A Great slogan 4 preachers THE great foundation for humanism: God the Human. The Man is the measure of all things. When it comes to humanity, Jesus is the definite article. If there's one thing crazier than trying to get free from God it's trying to slave for Him. #Luke15
Last words of John Newton: “I am still in the land of the dying; I shall be in the land of the living soon.”

I don't think the non-Christian is less human because they're an unbeliever. *They* think they're less human than they really are. Much less
You don’t have to wait to be welcomed into the kingdom. Thru the gospel Christ *has* welcomed u with open arms (Rom15:7) #EnjoyYourDay
Remember: the Trinity** IS the unity of God.
"Speaking the truth in love" does not mean "Say hard things with a smile."
What does it reveal about our theology if we think of "the truth" as a harsh reality and "love" as a gloss?
This week we recall that Truth & Love go "all the way down". The Truth is always "in Love" cos the Son is always in the Father by the Spirit
You pride yourself on being a preacher of REPENTANCE right? Ok good. Then practice what you preach.
We are not merely to experience the love of God but become the experience of God's love for others.

The world is not a factory with u pulling the levers. Consider the birds. It’s your Father’s house & ur His child. #Matthew6 #EnjoyYourDay
"A preacher's great danger is to think they've unlocked a text when the purpose of a text is to unlock a heart." Steve Levy
You say "Personal relationship with Jesus", the Bible says "Covenant."

Underneath it’s not ‘blind, pitiless indifference’. Underneath are the everlasting arms. Deut 33:27 #EnjoyYourDay
Gospel preaching does not make sin irrelevant nor merely 'illegal'. It makes sin unthinkable
Preaching against sin is not saying "You might but you mustn't." It's saying "You're not so how can you?"
Your Aaron has entered the Holy Place, bearing yr name over his heart as a continuing memorial before the LORD. Exodus 28:29 #EnjoyYourDay
Top tip for #TrinitySunday preachers: preach Jesus.
Being Trinitarian without being Jesus-centred is like writing an ode to love with no-one in mind. Proclaim Him
1John1 Pretend righteousness, unconfessed sin, lonely independence = darkness. The Fellowship, Blood&Family of God = light #EnjoyYourDay

Christians have our flesh from Adam and our Spirit from Christ. In this way we are simultaneously sinners and righteous.
A Christian cannot be surprised at sin and spiritual sloth (we are flesh!) Equally we cannot make our peace with it (we are the Spirit's!)
God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 1John5:11 #EnjoyYourDay
Who by worrying can shave a single minute from their Sat Nav arrival time?
Dictatorships are totallyarian regimes.
Christians shouldn’t be Toffee Crisp, we should be Andrex. Not hard and brittle - soft and strong.
Evangelical preaching is not preaching evangelical shibboleths. It’s preaching the evangel.
