Life Inspired by the Holy Spirit

Life Inspired by the Holy Spirit

Inspiration is a wonderful thing. Without it, any creative work would be nearly impossible. My ultimate inspiration comes from the Lord. Like James Stalker has said, “How poor a guide enthusiasm is when it is not informed with the mind and spirit of God.” We need the Holy Spirit to guide us and inspire us. Hence, my agent of inspiration is the Holy Spirit who breathes life into me and through me. Without him, any spiritual life would be impossible….

Waiting on God Is Wise

Waiting on God Is Wise

Summer seems to be a time when everything stops. Nothing happens. Yes, we need that kind of time to relax and rejuvenate. But too much is too much, right? Little by little we become anxious to do something, anything really. The wise thing here is to wait until it’s the right thing to do, not just because we are too anxious to wait. This happens in our spiritual life too. Waiting on God is a big part of Christian living. We…

Are You Collecting Idols?

Are You Collecting Idols?

Summer is an awesome time for spiritual check-ups. Usually, we get some time off the grid or even time away from routines. That gives us time to see our life better than when we are barely trying to survive from day to day. Today I am trying to look at my life if there are any other gods than God Almighty. You know, it’s so easy to start collecting idols without even noticing it. How about you? Are you collecting…

The Well-Being of Your Soul

The Well-Being of Your Soul

How are you doing? And how about the well-being of your soul? We hear the first question quite often even if they are not really wanting to know how we are. The second question is something we rarely get asked which is kind of sad. But maybe it is a question we should ask ourselves. You know, the well-being of your soul is the most important thing. Without the well-being of your soul, you are not only unhappy but also…

If You Crave Comfort, Crawl to Jesus

If You Crave Comfort, Crawl to Jesus

Sometimes, we all crave comfort. Or maybe I should say, most of the time, we all crave comfort. Most likely we don’t realize it but we do. Life is hard, the world seems harsh. Hence, we crave comfort. The advertisers try to sell us their products to bring us some level of comfort. But they all are fake advertisers. There’s only one way to get lasting comfort and that is Jesus. Until we are truly comforted by the Lord, we…

Pray and Never Quit

Pray and Never Quit

Once more I want to write about prayer. It’s utmost important that Christians do not live without it. With the words of E.M. Bounds “Prayer and a holy life are one. They mutually act and react. Neither can survive alone. The absence of the one is the absence of the other.” Prayer needs to be part of Christian’s life, plain and simple. Today I want to talk about persistent prayer. And, yes, I know, I’ve written even about that before….

Sundays for Worship and Play Only

Sundays for Worship and Play Only

I reserve Sundays for play and worship only. I try to avoid doing anything useful (like doing laundry or mowing the lawn). When you first start doing this, it might feel a bit annoying that you can’t deal with the everyday stuff whenever you want. But when you truly embrace the idea of play and worship only, you start celebrating the fact that you have a whole day set aside for worship and play only. You can plan ahead of…

Are You Ready to Give up Everything to Follow Jesus?

Are You Ready to Give up Everything to Follow Jesus?

Do you love God more than anything? And do you surrender to Jesus daily? Your will, your strength, your heart, your mind, your body, your soul, your spirit, your everything? That is a tall order, isn’t it? Are you truly willing to give up your own children, even your own life, to follow Jesus? Because that is what he expects you to do. Are you ready to give up everything to follow Jesus? With the words of Jesus: Simply put, if you’re…
