Thought for the month – October 2018

Well it’s October and it’s time for the thought of the month, but how important will this thought be to you? Will it be a thought that will change your life?
Will it be a thought that will bring you hope?
Will it be a thought that will lift your heart?
Or will it be a thought that will not touch you at all?

I was 18 years old when I sat in church one Tuesday evening. I remember that night over 32 years ago, how sad and how far from the Lord I was, going my own way and doing my own thing. Then it happened! The Lord intervened in my life in such a powerful way and changed my life forever. Now what about you? Have you had that change within?

Let me ask you a question. Are you saved? Have you asked the Lord Jesus Christ into your life? The Bible says in Romans 10v13 ‘For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’
You may have come to camp this year and you wanted so desperately to call, but you didn’t. Then call upon Him now!
‘Lord save me!’ is all it takes. I believe if those words come from your heart then that’s enough and you will receive salvation.

The Lord Jesus is a wonderful saviour. One who will help you in every aspect of your life, at school, at College, at University, at work. In every situation you find yourself in He will be there helping and guiding you. He is so able to help you in your every need.
‘Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us’ Ephesians 3v20.
I will be honest with you, I have always found my Christian life hard. But deep down in my heart there is a longing to love and serve The Lord, to know Him more and to walk close with Him.

May you and all who read this simple thought have a longing like this, and may The Lord use this for His glory and honour.

Paul Fox
