Now this alternative opens up all kinds of extraordinary discoveries, after all the one we are invited to trust in, so our Bible tells us, is the creator and sustainer of our world, our universe:

For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things and in Him all things consist’ (are held together). (Colossians 1:16-17)

The reference in this quotation is of course to God the Son – our Lord Jesus Christ – of whom it is also written: ‘For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich’. (2 Corinthians 8:9)

Briefly, what incredible riches belong to the humblest Christian believer! Take that inestimable gift of ‘Eternal Life’: ‘You have given Him (Jesus Christ) authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as you have given Him. And this is eternal life , that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent’. (John 17:2- 3)

Then too, there is that promise of  ‘…the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding’ that comes from sincere repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. (Philippians 4: 7)  

Finally, the Bible tells us that – ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things God has prepared for those who love Him’.  (1 Corinthians 2:9)

In Peter’s first Epistle, chapter one and verses 3 – 5, these ‘things’ are described for Christian believers as; ‘..a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation’.


Interested friends may like to know that there is now in Basingstoke a small ‘Venture in Faith’ as a first step, we trust, towards re-establishing a reformed Baptist witness in this area. Meetings for worship are held on the first Sunday in the month at the Old Down Hall, Kempshott, RG22 5HY. For further details see www.basingstokeindependentbaptist.org.uk
