Why the Bible is Such a Huge Gift?

Why the Bible is Such a Huge Gift?

I’ve always thought the Bible is valuable and precious. But the more I read it, the more I cherish it. The Bible is priceless. The salvation plan of God, which is revealed in the Bible, is beyond amazing. The Bible is a treasure map to God’s heart. That’s why the Bible is such a huge gift. Whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction so that we could have hope through endurance and through the encouragement of…

How to Keep Legalism Out of Christianity, part 2

How to Keep Legalism Out of Christianity, part 2

We all know it would be good to read the Word of God (or….add any spiritual discipline here). But how come so many Christians go by weeks, month, even years without reading it? The enemy is good in making us believe his lies “you already know all the stories”, “you don’t have time”, it’s boring” etc. But also anything we “ought to do” gets us to rebel. We might even say “I am not legalistic” as an excuse to not…

Chewing on Scripture Day and Night

Chewing on Scripture Day and Night

I find the best description of reflection in Psalm 1: How well God must like you— you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon,  you don’t slink along Dead-End Road, you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College. Instead you thrill to God‘s Word, you chew on Scripture day and night.  (Psalm 1:1-2 MSG) Chewing means thinking deeply about. If you think of a dog chewing on a bone you get the right idea about how we should chew on God’s word. Meditation…

How to Become Holy Like Your God is Holy

How to Become Holy Like Your God is Holy

I hope you didn’t come to read this blog post in order to find a quick formula for becoming holy. Because then you will be disappointed. There is no such quick-fix formula. But we are not out of hope, either. Because God gave us the Holy Spirit to do his work in us. Through prayer we can approach God and state our willingness to be changed, to become holy like the Father God. But we have also been given another…

Exodus – What I Learned This Time Around

Exodus – What I Learned This Time Around

I’ve always loved the stories in Exodus. What a powerful God we have! Each time I read them or hear them I am in awe of God’s miraculous and mysterious ways to get his people out of slavery into a life of freedom. Just like the people in Exodus so are we in deep trouble. Blessedly God’s story of salvation did not end at Exodus. Salvation is something God did (especially in Jesus) and is doing for us because we…

Crossing Back to Life

Crossing Back to Life

Are you discouraged? Burdened? Homesick? Burned-out? Cross back into Life! God is waiting for you to cross back home to him. Crab your Bible because “the Holy Scriptures are our letters from home” like Augustine put it. The Bible will be your map back to Life. “The remedy for discouragement is the Word of God. When you feed your heart and mind with its truth, you regain your perspective and find renewed strength.”(Warren Wiersbe)   Stick with what you learned…

Old But Up to Date

Old But Up to Date

Put your nose into the Bible everyday. It is your spiritual food. And then share it. Make a vow not to be a lukewarm Christian. (Kirk Cameron) This quote urges everyone to reach for their Bibles and then turn to others with the Good News of Jesus Christ. The Bible really is our spiritual food. Through the Holy Bible God still speaks to us. It is old but it is always up to date. Because it is the living word…

Live Wisely – Pray About Everything (Quest for God’s Will, part 3/4)

Live Wisely – Pray About Everything (Quest for God’s Will, part 3/4)

As we learn to live in God’s will it is important to learn to let go of our worries and let God transform our lives as he pleases. That might sound scary but it really works. We can either worry or pray. There is not room for both of them in a Christian. This is easier said than done but praying without ceasing is one of the most important survival skills for Christians. If you have a lot on your…
