Healthy Milk Options

In search for better milk options, You'll come across a number of brands.They're listed here for those who may be in need of information on healthier milk brands in Australia.
Bath Milk (unpasteurised, unhomogenised) A number of milk purists would still advise you towards raw, unpasterurised, unhomogenised milk. Selling unpasteurised milk for human consumption is illegal in Australia. Pasteurisation is deemed essential in ensuring consumers drink safe milk. With news breaking out of a 3-year old kid in Melbourne possibly dying due to raw milk consumption, more are discouraging consumers from patronising raw milk (unpasteurised milk). Still, those who prefer unpasteurised milk would be seen purchasing milk baths for drinking. Officially, milk bath products specifically declare themselves on their labels as for cosmetic use and  unfit for human consumption. But, it's up to people to do what they want with their purchase when they get home. Here are a number of bath milk produc…

Prioritizing God's Word

We expend time, energy, attention, and other resources on a daily basis. What do we expend all these on? Our whole life is a collection of our daily life. It happens one day at a time and at the end of our life, can we look back and be satisfied with how we have spent it? As Christians, can we say that we made time with God's Word a priority? The Word of God is important to a Christian. It is normally "in your face", easily accessible on a daily basis. Yet often, it is most neglected, set aside for other pursuits and preoccupations.
In an interview, Rev. Billy Graham shared some regrets he had in his life. He said that he regretted not spending more time with God and His Word. He wished he had studied more and preached less. "People have pressured me into speaking to groups when I should have been studying and preparing," he said.
The Word of God is key to understanding the issues of life. Psalm 119:30 says, "God’s word gives understanding to the simple."…

Quotes: Insight From Billy Graham

Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God. (quoting from D.L.Moody)

"God will prepare everything for our perfect happiness in heaven, and if it takes my dog being there, I believe he'll be there."

"The moment we take our last breath on earth, we take our first in heaven."

"Christ not only died for all: he died for each."

“We say to our children, 'Act like grown-ups,' but Jesus said to the grown-ups, 'Be like children.'"

“Without the resurrection, the cross is meaningless.”

“The cross shows us the seriousness of our sin—but it also shows us the immeasurable love of God.”

“God never takes away something from your life without replacing it with something better.”

“Take one day at a time. Today, after all, is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.”

"God has given us two hands…

The Andy Savage Scandal: Two Things Churches Should Learn From


The Colorful Life and Legacy of Rev. Billy Graham

We can say that Rev. Billy Graham was one Christian who lived a full and colorful life. Born on November 7, 1918, he lived up to the age of 99. He passed away on Wednesday, the 21st of February 2018. A driven evangelist, Billy Graham may have reached the most number of people with the message of the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. This global evangelist was also able to establish relationships with many presidents of the United States, serving as advisers to many of them, including Presidents Jimmy Carter and Dwight Eisenhower who is said to have been encouraged by Graham to run for the presidency. His was indeed a life of pressing forward in furtherance of the Gospel. He defied boundaries and created new trends for ministry and relationships.

Billy Graham came to know the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ at the age of 16. By the age of 21 he received ordination from a Southern Baptist Convention church. Billy Graham began missionary work in 1944 sharing God's Word at Youth for Chri…

Christian Quotes for the Week

"We never change because we don't allow the power of God's Word to change us." morphiuus

Ministry Burnout: Taking a Break in Your Personal Oasis

a resource from Rev. Mike MeƱez
The Oxford dictionary defines “Oasis” as “a fertile spot in a desert, where water is found”. It is a resting place in the midst of a rough and rugged journey.
Sometimes, ministry can become a desert for workers. For several different reasons and at different magnitudes, many times we find ourselves feeling exhausted, spent, and with nothing more to give. It is at these times that we need to “take a break” from the severity of things and just begin to find our “personal oasis”.
The Lord God Himself set us an example in the Sabbath. He wired us so that we need rests and breaks. In guilt, a lot of times, we “work our asses off” thinking it’ll make up for our shortcomings. But it never does… does it? Busyness doesn’t equate to spirituality, nor does it result to intimacy.
We all need to establish our own “personal oases”. I used the plural form here because I believe we should have a number of them. It should start with our time away with God… With all the pres…

Fear of the Lord

Scriptures share what involves the fear of God. Basically, the very word used for the word "fear" takes the meaning of fright or terror. But as used within the context of a child's fear of his God, it involves a lot more other things, the least of which is terror and fright. That being said, would it be wrong if you are somewhat afraid of God, if you are frightened by Him? Would being frightened of God mean there is no genuine love going on?
Some love relationships begin with fear and sometimes a level of fear remains no matter how deep one's love for another has already grown. Babies who grow up in a loving atmosphere have experienced being afraid of their parents, especially during their very young ages. Teenagers who grow up with genuine love know the sensation of fear when they do something they know their parents do not approve of.
Even while truly loving someone, you can experience being afraid in some ways. You can become afraid of making the other person angry …
