Self-Consciousness vs. Christ-Consciousness

Self-Consciousness vs. Christ-Consciousness

Oswald Chambers talks in his book “My Utmost for His Highest” published in 1935 about self-consciousness versus Christ-consciousness.

In My Father’s House

In My Father’s House

Last week our family moved 500 km south. There still are too many boxes around, misplaced items and the unpacking process is far from finished. But it feels good to be here.

How would you answer these questions? Here are my ponderings. What is joy?Joy is an essential spice in life. Without joie de vivre life would be boring. Joy is the spark in the eye, the belly-laugh, the worriless well-being. Joy is contentment through hardships, hope when there is no visible reason for it. Who is Christ?Christ is the risen son of God who wants to re-connect us with our Creator and has made it possible through dying on the cross…

People Whose Hearts God Has Touched

People Whose Hearts God Has Touched

Don’t you just love the word of God, the Bible? I love reading it, studying it, talking about it. The more I read, the more fascinating it becomes. The more I let the word work in me, the more awesome it becomes. And yet, there are times when other things take time from this. How has your Bible reading been lately? I strongly recommend to (re)start taking regularly some quiet time before the Lord. Each time keep reading the Bible…
