Stress - The modern curse? Some stress is good; it helps you stay focused, energetic, and productive.

We call this Eustress, and it’s good for us. Distress however can sap our energy, speed up our heart rate, ruin our health, cause insomnia, some stomach disorders, racing thoughts, anxiety attacks, brain fog, interfere with our productivity at work and it feels awful. Kit Philo from the Lighthouse Clinic says people can learn to manage stress effectively. “Therapy can help you learn the secrets of how to effectively manage stress including how to

manage your own mind and effectively ‘turn it down’ so that you can get on with your life using Mindfulness based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).” For more information contact the friendly staff at the Lighthouse Clinic today.

The Weekend Sun

It’s character that counts I love the account of David being anointed by the prophet Samuel for his role as king as it is recorded in 1 Samuel 16:5-14.

And as I was thinking about that, I was trying to imagine the scene as Jesse (the father) and his sons stood around as Samuel poured the oil over the head of the shepherd boy David. They have been called in and asked to consecrate themselves and prepare for a sacrifice and told that God would choose a king today. And surprise, surprise he does not choose one of the seven older and stronger boys but chooses David, who was just a shepherd boy in his early teens fresh from the sheep paddock. He was maybe even still in his shepherd’s clothing and the revered prophet Samuel solemnly takes the horn of oil and pours it over the boy’s head.

The brothers would have been more than a bit annoyed that they had not been picked, after all they were better equipped as soldiers and yet God speaking through Samuel chooses this unlikely shepherd boy and God’s power comes on him. God’s reason for choosing David is that the strength of the man was in his character not in his physical abilities. The key for us today is that God is more interested in the integrity and character of our hearts than the physical attributes of strength and wisdom. Filling the shoes of, and correcting the errors of the previous King Saul was a task that required supernatural ability from God and a man of character and inner strength Many of the tasks that we face are bigger than our own abilities and we need that same enabling power of God and good character to meet the challenges of life today. Stephen Tyrrell, South City Baptist Church, Tauranga.

What is mankind’s greatest need? Some would say mankind’s greatest need is either love, acceptance, self-worth, peace, health, wealth or security – but the Bible makes it clear that mankind’s greatest need is forgiveness. Since the fall of Adam and Eve, every person born of a woman, with the exception of Jesus, has been born with an inherent sin nature. That sin condition inherent in every one of us causes us to live in self-seeking rebellion and leaves us

separated from a holy God, causing us to be under the judgment of God for our sin. Consequently, every person needs to be forgiven for their sin. Hebrews 9:22 tells us that “without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins”. God’s answer for man’s sin is that an innocent, perfect sacrifice needed to be offered to stand in the place of the guilty. Under the Old Covenant, this was the sacrifice of an innocent, spotless animal as an atonement for the sin of the nation of Israel. Under the New Covenant, this sacrifice for mankind’s sin, this offer-

ing that made the way for mankind to be forgiven, was the shedding of the innocent blood of Jesus Christ, the sinless, perfect Lamb of God. Colossians 1:14 tells us that in Christ Jesus “we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins”. To be in Christ, we need to come through the doorway of repentance, turning our backs on a life lived outside of a living relationship with God and then surrendering to the Lordship of Jesus over every aspect of our lives. To find out more, go to See you on Sunday at Jesus First. By Peter Whitcombe, Jesus First Church

Greedy tax collector has change of heart One of the best known of Sunday school stories is the one from Luke 19:2 about a man by the name of Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was wealthy and very disliked because he worked for the Jews who were the oppressors of the Romans, and because he was not honest in all his dealings. Because he was a short man he ran ahead of the crowds and climbed a tree so that he could see Jesus. Even though he was hidden up there in the branches and leaves, Jesus knew that he is there and Jesus stops under the tree and calls Zacchaeus down and has a meal at his home. As a result of meeting Jesus, Zacchaeus has a change of heart and

makes some quality life decisions. He determines that: “Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” Now, the fact that he gave to the poor was important and good but more than that it showed a change of heart from this man who had been a cheat and a thief who then resolved to act honestly and fairly. One key in our relationship with God through Jesus is that we will have a change of heart and our relationship with God shows in our behaviours and in our ways. Meeting Jesus should bring about a change in our lives and this should be evident to others. Stephen Tyrrell South City Baptist Church Tauranga
