Thoughts of The Week

Do not be afraid

God says to us the same as He said to Joshua ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged, for I, the Lord your God, am with you wherever you go’ (Joshua 1:9)

Power In Weakness?

God says ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness’ (2Corinthians12:9) … How reassuring that He doesn’t expect us to have it all together before we can approach Him!

The Power of Still

Exodus 14:14 says ‘The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still’. What things can you give over to god today and trust Him with?

How encouraging that even when we currently feel restricted…

Paul wrote from prison to Timothy saying that God’s word is not chained (2 Timothy 2: 9) – How encouraging that even when we currently feel restricted and stopped from doing some of the things that we like – what is really important can still shine through!

What does God expect us to be like?

What does God expect us to be like? Well… we don’t need to guess as he is happy to tell us in his word, the Bible. Micah 6:8 says: He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with […]

Togetherness

This half term our school value is togetherness. God has plenty to say to us about this!   Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone (Romans 12: […]

How can we share today about where our hope comes from?

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15)

This half termly school value is servanthood. If we are honest… we might not like the idea of being a servant! However, it is one of the most important biblical themes that there is, and it has the power to completely transform communities, workplaces, classes and families. Try serving!   ‘For even (Jesus) did not […]

Where are you planted?

Jesus calls us into dynamic community with Him where both the individual and the corporate are fruitful. Where are you planted?   Jesus said ‘I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)

This Lenten time – how can we be sacrificially generous to those around us?

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
