Hebrews 4:16 (NLT) So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most

TODAY’S NUGGETS        

For meditation: Matthew 20:29-37

Grace creates mercy, compassion and provides an opportunity for a personal touch from the Lord. Without grace we would be nowhere near God. “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” ~ 1 John 3:1 (NLT).

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch like me….

I once was lost but now am found,

Was blind, but now, I see.

 

T’was Grace that taught…

my heart to fear.

And Grace, my fears relieved.

How precious did that Grace appear…

the hour I first believed.

 There are four words…

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (NLT) I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.

TODAY’S NUGGETS        

JESUS died for our sins and was raised from the dead on the third day for our justification. Today is EASTER Sunday when we remember, commemorate, observe and celebrate His resurrection.

The Apostle Paul is able to testify of the Resurrection because according to him:

  • Jesus presented Himself alive-
    • To Peter,
    • To His closest followers, and
    • To more than five hundred of His followers all at the same time, most of them still alive at the time Paul was writing to the Corinthians.
  • Jesus spent time with James and the rest of those He…

Mark 16:15-16 (NIV) He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”

TODAY’S NUGGETS

Witnessing or evangelism is one of those subjects that usually makes Christians feel uneasy, because we know should be doing it, but no one seems to do enough of it!

There are two possible extremes associated with evangelism. Both should be avoided:

  • Wanting to force feed everybody with the Gospel, no matter how in-appropriate it might be:

Although we are enjoined to be ready to preach the Gospel at all times, we should not manipulate people into accepting Christ. Evangelism doesn’t mean we should arm-twist our neighbours or work colleagues or classmates into attending church meetings.

  • Not preaching at all because we are the light of the world and…

Polytunnel

We are currently raising funds to erect our first polytunnel. It is exciting to think that now GUCU is up and running we can start to grow our own salad crops. In order to do this we will need a polytunnel.

We should shortly be starting work on getting the ground ready and preparing the site. We have one 12 year old volunteer who will be helping us.

I also wanted however to link to Greenhouses UK. Richard Sutton is the owner of the business and has been helpful in advising us on our first purchase and also in giving us a generous discount.

With 20+ years’ experience of greenhouses and being true horticulture enthusiasts, Richard know’s how important it is to choose carefully when buying a greenhouse. We hope to continue this relationship on to purchase a greenhouse with them.

Richard has already ground us in our first purchase and helping us to plan future purchases. We are looking forward to continuing the relationship over the years to come and would heartedly recommend his company to you.

MPs in youth crime warning over funding cut plan

Crime may rise if funding is cut for youth offending prevention projects in England and Wales, MPs have warned.

The House of Commons’ Public Accounts Committee said the cost of any reduction in funds was likely to outweigh any short-term savings.

It also warned the government’s decision to axe the Youth Justice Board – the body which administers youth justice – could be counter-productive.

A mural to promote responsible behaviour among young people in Newquay has been painted over.

Burger King said the mural on its wall “had to be repainted” after a request from the landlord of the building.

The organisation behind the mural, My A’th Kar Newquay, which means “I Love You Newquay” in Cornish, said young people behind the mural were “reeling” from the incident.

Should a teenager be left to babysit a toddler?

A mother has been given an official police caution for leaving her 14-year-old son in charge of his three-year-old brother. So at what age can children be left at home alone without parental supervision?

It’s a story that would sound alarm bells for many mothers and fathers.

Any parent who sometimes nips out to the shops, leaving their children to look after each other, will take note.
