Friday the 13th – what to do?

Friday the 13th – what to do?

It’s Friday the 13th. What to do? How to go about it as a Christian? Well, I’d suggest you start your day with the Lord. Not because it’s Friday the 13th but because it is the best way to start any day. When we live our days with the Lord, we are safe and sound, even on Friday the 13th. How do I know? Well, the Bible tells us so. The Lord is your keeper;    the Lord is your shade at your right hand.The sun…

Let Love Come Close

Let Love Come Close

I find the gift of faith is so amazing that I have a hard time understanding why everybody does not think so. Because through faith we are all invited to come to God who is love. Why would anybody refuse to let Love come close is beyond me. Because love makes everything better (in my book anyway). I believe people either have not heard or have not understood the essence of Christianity. Most people think faith is old-fashioned or irrelevant…

Grace Is Sufficient

Grace Is Sufficient

I’ve been touched by a gospel story this week. In some ways, it captures what I’ve been trying to learn to convey to you. Grace is sufficient and the only way to heaven. So it’s finally time to stop trying to earn it (or run from it). He [Jesus] also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and…

Back to God

Back to God

When we read the Bible prayerfully, the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to see things from a fresh perspective. I share you one of my revelations. For long time I kept wondering how on earth the Israelites wandered around the desert for 40 years. Why did they have hard time believing and trusting in God? Why did they not turn back to God? Have you had similart thougths while reading of the adventures of the Israelites in the desert? And…

Turning Tables

Turning Tables

Do you remember the Bible story of Jesus overturning the tables of the money changers? It used to puzzle me yet amaze me at the same time. Why would Jesus do it? And what would turning tables mean in my life? Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. (Matthew 21:12, NIV) I think Jesus was angry that people were…

Pace with Grace

Pace with Grace

One of the secrets of living well is pacing. Life can get very busy as you very well know. If we are not careful, our life easily spins out of control. And that’s not good, right? So, if we want to live well, we need to learn to pace with grace. How can we do that? We need to remember the Christian journey is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. Hence we need to pace with grace. Otherwise, we will…

Prayer Is a Gift

Prayer Is a Gift

Prayer is a gift in so many different ways. First of all, prayer is our way of communication with God. Isn’t it amazing that – because of Jesus – we can approach God anytime and anywhere? And God is waiting for us. God’s there, listening for all who pray,    for all who pray and mean it. (Ps. 145:18, MSG) A wondrous thing about prayer is the fact that we are heard. We feel better right after our amen even though it is only…

Christian Hospitality

Christian Hospitality

Have you ever been touched by someone’s hospitality? Good for you. Christian hospitality at its best is profoundly touching. I am in the learning process of this scriptural and spiritual way of serving others. I want to practice Christian hospitality myself. How about you? Do not forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers [in the brotherhood—being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously], for through it some have entertained…

Called to Grow in Faith

Called to Grow in Faith

Last week I wrote about how believing needs to begin again every morning. That’s why none of us can boast of our faith, we are all beggars of grace. But this does not mean that we weren’t called to grow in faith. Faith is not a pill we swallow once in our lifetime. Rather it is an organic connection with God we are all invited to enter. And this is where we can grow in faith. We are called to…
