Alive and Active

Alive and Active

I have two Eugene Peterson quotes to challenge you today if you’re getting too comfortable in your life. Sure, Jesus came to comfort the afflicted. But he also came to afflict the comfortable. God wants you to be alive and active. So here we go with the words of Eugene Peterson: What a waste it would be to take these short, precious, eternity-charged years that we are given and squander them in cocktail chatter when we can be, like Jeremiah,…

Eternally Changeless God

Eternally Changeless God

Such human qualities as absent mindness or forgetfulness do not apply to God. Neither is he getting tired or weakening or ageing. God is on his top form as much today as he was when he created the world. Our God is an eternally changeless God. Hallelujah! Who has done this and carried it through,     calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord—with the first of them     and with the last—I am he. (Isaiah 41:4, NIV) Also Jesus…

Are You God-Loyal? Always and Forever?

Are You God-Loyal? Always and Forever?

How do you rate loyalty? How important being loyal and faithful is to you? They are extremely important to me. I think any relationship needs loyalty and faithfulness, otherwise there’s no trust and intimacy. This also applies to our relationship with God, don’t you think? Not just from God’s side – for he is forever loyal and faithful – but also from our side. Are you God-loyal? Always and forever? Martin Luther has said “Where the battle rages, there the loyalty…

Complete in Christ

Complete in Christ

Just a quick reminder for all of us that we don’t need a telescope or a microscope or read horoscopes to find God or realize the hollowness of life without him. We are nothing without God. Our lives are just a big, ugly, shallow show without him. Blessedly, God sent his only son to make us complete in Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a…

Take Heart

Take Heart

Cheer up. Take heart. Be encouraged. Do not be afraid. Rest assured. These are the ways Jesus’ words for a paralyzed man have been translated. These words are also for you feeling paralyzed at this moment. Whatever it is that feels overwhelming is not a match to Jesus. So cheer up. Take heart. Be encouraged. Do not be afraid. Rest assured. God is your help. Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw…

Being a Part of God’s Team

Being a Part of God’s Team

Are you on God’s team? Good for you. How does that affect your everyday life? How’s teamwork part of your life? Are you pulling for the team God? Are you doing your part as a team member? I hope so. You can easily enough see how this kind of thing works by looking no further than your own body. Your body has many parts—limbs, organs, cells—but no matter how many parts you can name, you’re still one body. It’s exactly…

Grace Is Straightforward

Grace Is Straightforward

Grace is straightforward. It’s uncomplicated. It’s plain-sailing. Why then do we make it complicated? Difficult to understand? Demanding? Because grace is a sure thing for all who believe in Jesus. It is a gift from God for all who welcome Jesus. God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life. (John 3:16, CEB) God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you…

Christ Is Our Power

Christ Is Our Power

I’ve been a long time trying to convey people that we are nothing but egotistical maniacs without Christ. The ego monster within us will talk incessantly about me, mine, myself if Christ and his grace does not fill us. We need to die to ourselves daily to allow Christ take over and make us better. Christ is our power. Such is the confidence and steadfast reliance and absolute trust that we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficiently qualified in…
