Letter from Chris

Dear Friends,

They said to me, ‘Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.’ When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.    Nehemiah 1:3-4

 “How are you doing?”  That is a question we all get asked very regularly.  We probably respond, “Fine, thanks,” or as this generation says, “I am good!” As Christians we may somehow feel we should be upbeat, smiling and always happy.  Shouldn’t we be positive with God as our Father, Jesus being our Saviour and life lived in the power and presence of the Holy Spirit?  And are we not exhorted in the Bible to rejoice and be glad.  Even Nehemiah himself says, Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” 8:10.
