A welcoming thought or two

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Welcome to ICL’s new website….

Simpler, clearer and hopefully far more usable.

It is still under construction in one or two places, so bear with us.

A big thanks to Dan, Sam, Wendy, Henk and others who have helped to make it possible.

Still under construction!! Sounds a bit like all of our lives too.

As we begin 2014, perhaps it is good to take some to reflect on how life is going.

Where are you at in life at present and why?

Some of the recorded words of Jesus Christ are, “The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10)

Are we allowing theft to take place in our lives for instance or are we seeking, with the Lord’s help to live in fulness of life?

May be the idea of God bringing help in our lives seems to like a totally alien idea to some people reading this.

If that is the way you see it, can I encourage you to explore more about why.

I want to encourage us all that even in the midst of the challenges of life, it is possible to know His fulness. If it is not possible, then Christ was wrong. If He was right, then it is possible!

Still under construction? Yes we are. One of the early followers of Christ wrote in a letter, “being confident of this that he who began a good work in you will carry it through until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6)

We have not arrived, we are on a journey. Let’s seek to keep growing with His help this year and point others to His life changing grace and truth.

People don’t need religion but relationship – any relationship takes time to grow. That includes with being a follower of Jesus Christ. Not surprising therefore that we are still under construction!
