from the Brisbane Revival Fellowship

We can all know love, for the love of our Father is placed in our hearts.


Only 93 days to the year 2021


Scripture Of The Day

Know ye that the LORD he [is] God: [it is] he [that] hath made us, and not we ourselves; [we are] his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Job 100:3

Read The Bible In a Year

Isaiah 9-10 ; Ephesians 3

Thoughts For The Day

It's a lot easier to react than it is to think.

You shouldn't compare yourself to the best others can do but to the best you can do.

To me, integrity is when you do what you know is the correct, moral thing to do even though others may choose to do otherwise.


Motivation For The Day

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Personal Story Of The Day


    And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?  Exodus 3:11

References from 1 Corinthians 12:12-20

Moses must have seemed like an unlikely candidate for an inferiority complex. Raised in privilege as an adopted son in Pharaohs household, he And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds. (Acts 7:22). He even believed at one point that he was destined to be Israels deliverer. Yet when Moses tried to deliver Israel by his own strength and strategy the outcome was murder, rejection, and exile (Ex 2:1115). It is not surprising that when God finally commanded Moses to return to Egypt and rescue his fellow Israelites, he balked and asked: Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?

Moses is not an isolated case. The Bible contains many examples of those who initially questioned their own ability and yet were used mightily by God. Gideon didnt think he could be used by God because he was the least member of Manassehs weakest clan (Judg 6:15). Jeremiah complained that he was too young and unskilled in speech to serve as Gods prophet to the nations (Jer 1:6). Esther was afraid that she might be put to death if she attempted to intervene on Israels behalf (Est 4:11). Simon Peter believed he was too sinful to be used by God (Luke 5:8). None of these believers overstated their own weakness or the obstacles they faced. The challenges were as great as they imagined. Gods power, however, was far greater.

It is this same power that is at work in the life of every believer. Because of this, none of us can say that we play an insignificant role in the body of Christ. If every believer has been given the Holy Spirit and the body is a unit, then every believer plays a vital role. Some may have a more prominent place, but as is the case with the human body, those parts that are unseen are just as necessary as those which are visible.

Pauls message is clear. Every believer is important. Every gift contributes to the health of the church as a whole.

Read through Exodus 3:14:12, Judges 6:17:25; Jeremiah 1:610, Esther 1:110:3, and Luke 5:111. Which of these examples seems most like you? What fears and anxieties do you share with Moses, Gideon, Jeremiah, Esther, and Peter? How did God help them to look beyond their weakness and see their potential in serving Him? Weakness, failure, and even past sin are no match for the grace of God or the power of the Holy Spirit. You may not be a hand or an eye in the body of Christ, but your role is just as vital!


Jokes Of The Day

A man calls his lawyer and asks: How much would you charge me to answer three questions?

LAWYER: Four Hundred Dollars

MAN: That's a bit steep don't you think?

LAWYER: I suppose...What's you third question?

************************************

One morning a blind bunny was hopping down the bunny trail, and he tripped over a large snake and fell, KerPlop!, right on his twitchy little nose. "Oh, please excuse me!" said the bunny. "I didn't mean to trip over you, but I'm blind and couldn't see."

"That's perfectly all right," replied the snake. "To be sure, it was MY fault. I didn't mean to trip you, but I'm blind too, and I didn't see you coming. By the way, what kind of animal are you?"

"Well, I really don't know," said the bunny. "Since I'm blind, I've never seen myself. Maybe you could examine me and find out."

So the snake felt the bunny all over, and he said, "Well, you're soft, and cuddly, and you have long silky ears, and a little fluffy tail, and a dear twitchy little nose. YOU must be a BUNNY RABBIT!" And the little blind bunny was so pleased he danced with joy.

Then he said, "I can't thank you enough, but by the way, WHAT kind of animal are YOU?"

And the snake replied that he didn't know, and the bunny agreed to examine HIM, and when he was finished, the snake said, "Well, what kind of an animal am I?"

The bunny replied, "You're hard, you're cold and you're slimy...

"You must be a lawyer."

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer. When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level. Stuff that will make them scream, cry, and howl in pain and anger!"
He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.

Riddle Of The Day

A doctor and a boy were fishing. The boy was the doctor's son, but the doctor was not the boy's father. Who was the doctor?

Answer to Yesterdays Riddle
A frog fell into a well 12 feet deep. He could jump 3 feet, but every time he jumped 3 feet, he fell back 2 feet. How many times did he have to jump to get out of the well?
The tenth jump took him out. (On the tenth jump he reached 13 feet and was out.)

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day


The triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem a few days before His death focused attention on Him as Lord. When Jesus sent His disciples to get the colt He was to ride, He instructed them to tell its owners, "The Lord has need of it" (Luke 19:31). And when the crowds shouted their praise, they quoted Psalm 118:26, saying, "Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!" (Luke 19:38).

Jesus is Lord. His name is "above every name" (Philippians 2:9). As part of His title, the word Lord refers to His sovereignty. He is the King, and every anointed believer in Him is a member of His kingdom.

We acknowledge Jesus as Lord of our lives by bowing to His authority as King. This means that we live in obedience to Him. We can't be like the man who claimed to be a Christian and yet chose to use illegal drugs and live in an immoral relationship. When his pastor confronted him, he glibly replied, "Don't worry, pastor. It's okay. I'm just a bad Christian."

It's not okay. Not at all! Not for a person who claims to be a follower of Christ (Luke 6:43-49).

Today, make sure you are honoring Him with your deeds as well as with your words. Then you can join with others in truthfully proclaiming, "Jesus is Lord!"

You Are an Epistle of Christ

Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart. 2 Corinthians 3:3

Many people do not read the Bible. Some people have never ever read it. They are not interested. Perhaps they have fear or prejudices. Perhaps they are indifferent or negative. They simply do not read the Bible. But they read you. And they read you very carefully. Whether you and I like it or not, we are epistles of Christ.

I was once told of a man who I had helped lead to salvation without my knowledge. I had been witnessing to another, rather uninterested, person sitting next to me on an airplane while this man had been sitting, listening intently, behind us. The conversation later became influential in this man's decision to be born again. And I knew nothing about it.

Lots of things happen around us of which we are unaware. People not only listen to what we say but also observe how we react in various situations. They want to know if we are serious. They want to know if we truly believe what we say. Once when I was speaking to non Christian students, one commented: You seem to believe in what you are talking about. You speak about it as if it were science, as if you really know it is as you say. He was quite shocked that I was convinced of what I was speaking about.

People often look at you in tough situations and wonder where you get your energy, peace and joy. You and I are epistles of Christ. Your life may be the only letter many people will ever read. You spread a fragrance, either a sweet smell of life or a rotting stench of death. If you live in Christ, the fragrance of His presence will scent your life.
