Jesus Christ is the greatest

A messenger from God announced to his mother Mary, at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ into the world, that he was going to be great. There is relative greatness and absolute greatness. Snowdon is a relatively great mountain in England and Wales; none is higher. But it is a mere hill compared to Alpine peaks, and like a molehill if set down in the Himalayas. That is relative greatness. But Jesus Christ is absolutely great. Great in his living No life can compare to his. He was pure, meek and good, and yet strong and just. He hated all that was tawdry and...

The sweet sound of grace

Hello, my name is Ruth. I’m married to Pete, am a mum, and love to spend my spare time singing, cooking and catching up with friends or family. However, I’ve got to pause there, because although all those things are nice to hear and know, they don’t tell you about my true identity. I want to tell you about how I came to find my true identity in Jesus Christ. I was brought up with my two sisters in a Christian home, meaning both my parents trusted Jesus as their Saviour. We were taught about God from childhood and I can never remember doubting God’s...

True freedom

I’m not sure what you think about Christianity or even Christians as you are reading this, but I would like to share with you the way the God of the Bible changed my life in ways I never thought would happen. My upbringing was a Christian one, as both my parents are Bible-believing Christians. I grew up going to church on a Sunday and hearing what the Bible has to say. However, I didn’t believe what was being taught and I had little interest in God or changing the way I lived because of what I heard. As I saw it then, God was in...

Sought and found by God

I was born in Wales, United Kingdom. Although sent to Sunday school as a young child (something which I hated!), I never once really heard the gospel message. Strange as it may seem, one can go to some places of worship and yet never hear the message of God’s saving grace. Two things I hated on Sundays as a child: one, having to go to the church up the road and attend this rather large Sunday school; and two, being reminded on Sunday evenings that I had school in the morning! I hated going to both schools, Sunday school and ‘ordinary’ school. I hated school...

From knowing about Jesus to knowing him

I grew up in a happy home in Malvern with a great family, good friends, and practically everything I wanted, right down to my own horse! We attended the local Church of England fairly often, and I believed I was a good person and good people went to heaven. I’d always believed in God and that Jesus Christ was his Son, although it never occurred to me to thank God for all the good things I had, or that he might not be pleased with the careless way I was living my life. I was confirmed at 15 years old, believing myself to be a...

Something better than this life can ever offer

When I was about six-years-old, I believed in God, and I remember praying to him, asking him to forgive me for the wrong things I was doing. I wasn’t particularly naughty or rebellious by many peoples’ standards, but I was hiding it well! But I knew that those wrong things I was doing meant that I was sinning against God, and that because of that I was going to hell. It scared me! Growing up as a teenager, I started to have serious doubts as to whether or not I really was a Christian. I had some big unanswered questions. For me, the problem was that God...

The flip side of Christmas

Christians around the world are praising God for the gift of Jesus Christ to be the Saviour. The good news of Jesus’ coming was proclaimed by the angels, welcomed by the shepherds, and celebrated by the wise men. It is well to be reminded, however, that this glorious event was not good news to everybody. At least one, King Herod, was not glad that the Saviour had come. Matthew 2:3 says: ‘When Herod the king heard these things, he was troubled’. Herod was aware of the expectation among the Israelites that their king would some day come to earth. The possibility that the infant sought...

The power of prayer

Hello, my story shows how wonderfully God answers prayer for our loved ones. My grandfather, whom I never met because he was killed in the First World War, became a Christian after he was married and had two sons. He prayed for his wife and family that they too would become believers, but he never saw his prayers answered in his lifetime. My father had no time for God; neither did my mother. I was born into this family, but God had his hand upon me from the age of three. I begged my mother to let me go to the Sunday school up the...

Leonard Muggeridge — son of a famous father

Many of you will have heard of the writer and often controversial TV broadcaster Malcolm Muggeridge, but perhaps not many will know that his eldest son Len was converted to Christ as a young man and had a long and active life in service to God. Compared to his famous father, Len (10/10/28–1/3/17) was a humble, unassuming man, who did not draw attention to himself, but, through his godly life and cheerful witness, had a lasting impact on many people’s lives. This is his story and a testimony to God’s grace in his life. Len was born in 1928 in Cairo, where his father was...

Something wonderful happened

I was driving home, and suddenly I felt so empty and lost. I became really upset, wondering where I was going with my life. What changed? I’d moved to Cardiff with work, and two people on my team became Christians. I’d watched them get baptised, and they’d told the stories of how their lives had completely changed for the best — and it made me seriously think! I thought I had a nice life, doing what everyone else was doing, focusing on things I thought I wanted and needed, but I wasn’t happy. Deep down I was crying and I remember calling out to God...

Real celebration

The story is told of a fellow who decided he’d throw a retirement party for his colleagues, friends and family, having worked in the same company for over 40 years. He hired a hall, booked a jazz band, contacted some outside caterers and sent out the invitations. Then, in due course, a great crowd descended on the hall and, as the evening wore on, began to really whoop it up. Strangely though, the host himself didn’t turn up! He couldn’t face it. Sadly, the nearer he got to retirement, the more depressed he got. It was something to do with thoughts of growing old, and...

Let’s go to Bethlehem

Christmas is a special time of the year. The preparations begin weeks before; there is a long list of things to be done. Cards and presents are to be bought, decorations and Christmas trees put up. There are school concerts and carol services. There is food to be bought and cooked; time with the family; and, for parents with young children, an early start on Christmas day! It’s no wonder we can feel very tired. But after it’s over, what remains? When the food has been eaten, the family have gone home and the decorations have been taken down, what stays with us as life...
