How do we know for sure that God is real? For those who know God, it's a dumb question because it's so obvious that he is real. God is everywhere, in everything. He is the air we breath, He fills the world with His love. Nothing could be clearer. But to others, the same "evidence" is a lack of evidence. Here are six things that prove to us that God is real.

We all love reading the Bible, but sometimes as Christians we don't understand it in the same way as each other. There are reasons for this of course, such as our culture, worldview, how we understand what the words we read mean, and more. One of the big reasons is our method of interpretation, sometimes called your hermeneutic.

Over the last fifty years things have been changing amazingly in the Islamic World. This is the result of what has been labelled by some the "greatest prayer movement in the history of the world." Some of the information in this post comes from the Joshua Project Website:

The book of Genesis is sometimes despised by people because of its origin stories. It has also been picked apart with suggestions that its not internally coherent, and wasn't written by one person but by four.

However the book of Genesis is a brilliant book, internally coherent, full of amazing features and careful thought, and clearly written by one author. It is right for believers to feel satisfied that it is part of God's inspired word, which does rightly speak to us today.

Here let me outline five brilliant (of many) features found in the book of Genesis.

There has been much said about the idea of sonship. The biblical language concerning sonship is almost exclusively ‘father’ and ‘son’. Concerning God and Christ, this must never be changed, but in the church there has to be some understanding. In this modern era women could feel excluded if they do not understand. Scripturally, all believers, men and women, boys and girls, are sons of God.

For many years now we have heard much talk in the media about climate change, sometimes called global warming. Not everyone agrees that the climate is changing, and those who agree are split on whether its caused by humans, or a natural phenomena. This blog is not about any of that.

However this blog is about the global warming of hearts towards Christ, which is something which will truly change the world.

It is common for teachers or child supervisors to select two children, who are "chosen" to be the captains of two teams. Those two children feel special at having been chosen, and then they proceed to select their teams based on what is best for them, a team they hope will be a winning team. Ultimately there are always a few children chosen last who feel unwanted.

In 1882, the Morgan Brothers started mining a seam of gold on Ironstone Mountain that proved to be incredibly wealthy. Not long after, during the early years, they were pulling in gold at the rate of more than ten ounces per tonne of dirt. The Mt Morgan Gold Mine in Central Queensland ended up being the wealthiest gold mine on the planet at that point, and the royalties paid to the colonial government of Queensland were a great boost in helping the fledgling colonies to federate and become Australia.

There is no better example of a relational maturity than that which exists in the Godhead. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one, and they are also three persons. United in thought, heart and mind, of one purpose and agreed in all they do. There is nothing like it anywhere. The unity we find in God gives the world its stability and "in Him we live and move and have our being." (Acts 17:28) . God is that unshakeable entity that gives a solid foundation to everything.

On December 31, 2017, forty-two people from the Peace Christian Church were gathered for prayer to usher in the New Year, which of course was last year. During that evening a word grew within us, that was already a reality before, but became concrete. The year ahead was the beginning of a season of opportunity.

So we labelled 2018 "the year of opportunity." In reality however, it was the first year of a season of opportunities that were ahead of us all.
