The Wee Leaflet

The History of The Wee Leaflet

The Wee Leaflet started in February 2012 in a small Aberdeen church with an initial distribution of just 6 families receiving it through the post. The demand for the leaflet grew and before long it was making it’s journey first from Scotland to England, then over to Europe and more recently out to different parts of America, Australia along with an Indian orphanage in Coimbatore. The Wee Leaflet also makes a monthly appearance in the cafe of a local bookshop in Aberdeen named CLC. Today over 130 copies get mailed across the globe once every month.

The aim of The Wee Leaflet is to provide mutual encouragement to young believers and give a space to share thoughts and grow together bit by bit. I hope you find it of some encouragement as you peruse.

September 2013 Issue:

The leaflet for September was inspired by following up the thought of intercession and intercessory prayers as carried out by the Lord Jesus Christ on our behalf.

Phases such as “the intercessory service of the Lord” and “intercessory prayer” confused me so I looked into it and found just how powerfully this is presented in scripture. It’s reassuring to know that the Lord Jesus is living to intercede for us where He is now before the Father.

August 2013 Issue:

It’s been said many times by so many dear Christians I know that whenever things seem to heavy to handle and they are looking for a verse to pick them back up again the Psalms is the book that gets flicked open for an uplifting thought. There is that well-known Psalm, Psalm 23 – The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
The Psalms are beautiful and in this leaflet the focus is on a Psalm of David that give great instruction for when going through trials and hardships in life.

June 2013 Issue:

In discussing James chapter 5 with a couple of friends it was seen that sin wants to isolate you and make you feel like you cannot cope with things, thus falling deeper into sin and further away from God. The importance of sharing the different issues you fall into with God and fellow Christians is so important, because that is where the help lies.

If you don’t deal with the way Satan attacks you and let the sin mount up and get in the way of your relationship with God then that’s exactly where Satan wants you, alone and away from God. The devil knows that the nearer you are to God the harder it is for him to attack and tempt you – the verse in James 4 rings true here “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.” Click below for my friend Courtney Johnstone’s views on the topic:

May 2013 Issue:

Matthew 10:7 says “as ye go, preach, saying the kingdom of the heavens has drawn nigh.” In the May issue of the wee leaflet there is a preaching from Ryan Mckay while visiting villages in India last year. We are charged as knowing the truth to then preach and proclaim the excellencies of the Lord Jesus to men so that many more may come under the knowledge of the truth and follow Him. Follow the link below for some extracts from the preaching:

Jesus Changes Lives

Billy has a message for YOU:

 

We do not believe it is by accident or chance that you are reading this, but that God desires that your life may be truly changed by coming to a personal knowledge of, and faith in, His Son, Jesus Christ.

That Jesus changes lives is not only seen in the witness of many former drug addicts, alcoholics and murderers but also in thousands of “ordinary” people, living “ordinary“ lives as “ordinary” sinners.

Persons that we all have been, who have:

–  no lasting peace in an uncertain world;

–  no certain hope in life here and no hope beyond death;

–  empty hearts with no deep and satisfying joy;

–  lives blighted by our sins – those things that we have done, and said, and thought that are not right or pleasing to God – that have separated us from God and, without a remedy, will eternally separate us from Him;

–  persons to whom God, death and what may be beyond death are unknown and uncertain fears and doubts.

Jesus changes lives because in His great and unexplainable love for us He has died and shed His blood to save us from our sins and change us from our sinful condition. He alone can:

–  give true and lasting peace. Peace has been made by the blood of His cross1.

–  give a true and certain hope that is unaffected by death – a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from among the dead2.

–  give a deep and satisfying joy because through the sacrifice of Jesus the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts3 and Jesus said “Your joy no one takes from you”4.

–  Cleanse you completely from the stain and burden of your sins because the blood of Jesus Christ God’s Son cleanses us from all sin5.

–  Give you a close relationship with God which is not just for this life but goes through death into an eternal blessing. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes on Him should not perish but have everlasting life6.

Jesus changes lives – one man described that change as “no longer live I but Christ lives in me …. I live by faith the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.7

Jesus can change your life today. He is no further than a cry of help away from you. The Lord Jesus knows you, loves you and the proof of that love is His death for you.

Our earnest prayer is that you may ask Him to change your life now.
