Luther Nailed It

Luther Nailed It

Today it has been exactly 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittenberg church. He did not know his actions would change history but they did. Luther just wanted to remind people of what faith was all about and what it was not. He wanted to get people back to the basics: we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Luther nailed it. There’s still nothing else that saves us. The power…

Overcoming Grace

Overcoming Grace

It seems we all have something to overcome. Sometimes I feel life is about overcoming. If you try to do it on your own, you don’t have much luck. If you do it with some others, you might succeed. Like Vesta Kelly has said ‘Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together.’ But even that approach is lacking at the end. The only thing that enables us to truly…

Find Fullness of Joy by Being in God’s Presence

Find Fullness of Joy by Being in God’s Presence

Sometimes Christians seek God for the gifts and blessings God gives to his children. But God is so much more than his lavish gifts. Sometimes we get way more excited about doing things for God than being with God. Yet only by being in God’s presence, we are at our best. Only by being in God’s presence, we bloom. And only by being in God’s presence, we are truly happy. In Your presence is fullness of joy. (Psalm 16:11, AMP)…

Discover More of God

Discover More of God

Would you like to discover more of God? Good for you. My number one recommendation for you is to spend more time with God and he will reveal more of himself to you. The more time you spend with God, the more you get to know him. Getting to discover more of God firsthand is always the best approach. He wants to be found. I love all who love me.     Those who search will surely find me. (Proverbs 8:17, NLT,*)…

You Have a Standing Invitation to Jesus

You Have a Standing Invitation to Jesus

Did you know that you have a standing invitation to Jesus? How wonderful is that? We are always welcome to Jesus. No matter what time is it or how badly we have messed up. Neither does it matter how long it has been since we’ve visited with Jesus. We are always welcome. Jesus keeps on inviting and is always delighted to see us. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28,…

Claim the Calm

Claim the Calm

Is it easy for you to keep calm in every situation you face? There have been a lot of fun “keep calm” posters, keep calm and do this or that. They are fun to look at. But the thing is: there is no way anyone can truly keep calm without inner peace. And that’s not a thing you can force upon yourself. Or anyone else for that matter. What to do then? How can we find that peace and claim the…

Live a Life Greater than You

Live a Life Greater than You

What’s your life story? Are you happy with how you’re life is going? All our life stories are different and all our stories have chapters that are lighter than others. But are you generally happy how your life has turned out? Have you achieved what you’ve set out to achieve? Reasonably well, I believe. Yet, too often we overlook something when we plan out our lives. There is a way to live a life greater than you. It might not…

Under the Shield of Grace

Under the Shield of Grace

A few days ago, I was reading an older translation of the Finnish Bible and encountered something beautiful in the last verse of Psalm 5. It declares ‘You will cover them with grace like a shield’. My heart rejoiced to know that we are covered by the shield of grace. How wonderful is that? We are safe under the shield of grace! I was so thrilled about the shield of grace that I immediately wanted to share it with you….
