Stop Trying and Just Do It

Stop Trying and Just Do It

Have you lately heard people saying “don’t try, just do it”? It applies to Christian living too. So often we say “I’ll try to read the Bible and take time to be with God” but then off we go and don’t do anything to make it happen. But that’s not how it works. Saying that we’ll try is not enough. We might fool others but God sees right into our heart. But I, the Lord, search all hearts     and examine…

Remind Yourself of God’s Goodness

Remind Yourself of God’s Goodness

Many times I’ve shared how reading just a few Bible verses rekindles our faith and readies us for the challenges of the day. The verse of the day from Biblegateway packs a powerful punch for all of us today. In just a few verses we are reminded of God’s goodness and awesomeness. And how blessed we are to be his. What you say goes, God, and stays, as permanent as the heavens. Your truth never goes out of fashion; it’s…

Blessed Fellowship

Blessed Fellowship

Yesterday, I visited dear friends that I’ve pretty much known since childhood. What a blessing to be with people who have always been there for you no matter what and who share the most sacred thing in life: faith in Jesus Christ. As J. Vernon McGee has said “There is a brotherhood within the body of believers, and the Lord Jesus Christ is the common denominator. Friendship and fellowship are the legal tender among believers.” We truly need each other….

My Ten Favorite Andrew Murray Quotes

My Ten Favorite Andrew Murray Quotes

Soul on Fire

Soul on Fire

Guess what’s my new favorite Christian song? Right. Soul on Fire by Third Day. I’ve been singing, dancing and praying it today like crazy. I hope this blesses you as much as it has blessed me. May all our souls be on fire for God! God, I’m running for Your heart I’m running for Your heart Till I am a soul on fire Lord, I’m longing for Your ways I’m waiting for the day When I am a soul on…

Divine Details

Divine Details

As you might know, I started reading through the Bible once again the first of July. I’m following a reading plan to do it in six months. This means that lately I’ve been reading a lot about God’s instructions for the construction of the tabernacle, the priestly vestments, the altar and its appurtenances, the procedure to be used to ordain the priests, and the daily sacrifices to be offered. You’d think there’s nothing for today’s reader. At least, nothing spiritual,…

If You Want to Be a Christian

If You Want to Be a Christian

This Dietrich Bonhoeffer quote captured me this morning, so I just had to share it with you. Hopefully – if you want to be a Christian – it will touch a chord in you and inspire you to put your faith in practice too. “If we want to be Christians, we must have some share in Christ’s large-heartedness by acting with responsibility and in freedom when the hour of danger comes, and by showing a real sympathy that springs, not…

The Secret of Boldness

The Secret of Boldness

Do you know what is the secret of boldness? It’s the same reason why the apostles were so bold in proclaiming the gospel. It’s the same reason why Christians all over the world dare to do things out of their comfort zones. It’s the same reason that keeps you and me going when things get tough. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;     he is my God, and I trust him. (Psalm…

That Empty Place in Your Soul

That Empty Place in Your Soul

Lately, I’ve been more and more shocked about how the western culture seems to be getting more vulgar and immoral all the time. For example, the things they show on TV and what the general public is forced to tolerate nowadays are repulsive. Like the world had gone mad or something. Yet the Bible reminds us there’s nothing new under the sun. You’re addicted to thrills? What an empty life!     The pursuit of pleasure is never satisfied. (Proverbs 21:17, MSG,*)…
