Guided by God Alone

  Many of us want to be guided by God alone. It’s a wonderful concept, isn’t it? But how do you put it in practice in real life? How does God guide us these days? How can we live for God alone?

REthink Your Life with Jesus Christ

REthink Your Life with Jesus Christ

How would your life be different if you dared to “live as if Christ died yesterday, rose this morning, and is coming back tomorrow “(Martin Luther)? This question has been staying with me for quite a long time now. You are called to rethink your life with Jesus Christ too. Are you really following him? Would you be ready to state like Jack Hyles “I’d rather die in the will of God than to live outside of it”? When you’re…

God-given Confidence

Do you know the secret of peace and joy? It is leaving all your anxieties and insecurities at the foot of the cross and banking your life on Almighty God. Then you can dance in the front of fear.

Learn God’s Ways

Learn God’s Ways

Yesterday, I was going through old photos, letters and my own diaries. It was so fun to see pictures of fellow camp counselors and college friends. I also went through some writings of my own and realized that every experience I’ve gone through has taught me a lot. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without those experiences and those people along the way. I’ve learned to hang in there no matter what. God is always at work behind…

Holy Living

Holy Living

Did you know that Jesus did not die only for our salvation? According to the Bible he also died so that we would ‘die to sin and live to righteousness’ (1 Peter 2:24). Being saved by grace is not the end. It is the beginning of holy living. God hasn’t invited us into a disorderly, unkempt life but into something holy and beautiful—as beautiful on the inside as the outside. (1 Thessalonians 4:7, MSG) Grace does not excuse us from…
