“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”Matthew 11 v 28-30
Why another Bible site? As we walk through the world we do hope to make an impact. I hear so many people desire to impact the many and they miss the opportunity to make a difference for the one. This site is here to make a difference to the one.
As Christians reading God’s word isn’t just a nice idea it is essential…
If you have never read the Bible then have a read now, it is challenging, informative, but most of all it is a love story of how much God loves us…
An old man was doing his daily walk along the beach one morning, when he spotted a young boy crouched by the water, scooping something up from the sand and throwing it into the sea.
The beach was normally empty at this time of day, and so the old man stopped to watch for a while.
He noticed that the boy kept on shuffling a little further down the beach, then repeating this same action again and again – stopping, scooping, throwing, moving.
“What are you doing there, boy?” the old man asked, walking closer.
“I’m saving these starfish that are stranded” replied the boy, “if they stay on the beach they will dry out and die, so I’m putting them back into the ocean so they can live.”
The old man was silent for a few seconds.
“Young man” he said, “on this stretch of beach alone, there must be more than one hundred stranded starfish. Around the next corner, there must be at least one thousand more. This goes on for miles and miles and miles – I’ve done this walk every day for 10 years, and it’s always the same. There must be millions of stranded starfish! I hate to say it, but you’ll never make a difference.”
The boy replied “well I just made a difference for that one”, and continued with his work.
Jesus calls us to make a difference for the one and I hope you will join me in making a difference for the one. Why don’t you offer to become a writer for the blog. Start by writing your testimony, a story or a reflection. It can stop with the one post or carry on to the hundreds. Wouldn’t it be great if we could create a site using the collective thoughts and wisdom of people across the globe. A site serving the one.
