Rely on God, Not on Yourself

Rely on God, Not on Yourself

We are told from very early on to be independent and self-reliant, preferably efficient and successful. That’s what’s expected of us, right? Then comes Christianity and tells us the opposite: depend on God, not on yourself. This can be really confusing and it can be hard to go against the grain. But the Bible does not mean you would not take care of yourself. Instead, it urges us to rely on God, not on ourselves or other people or money…

13 Reasons to Hope Always

13 Reasons to Hope Always

As long as there’s life there’s hope, they say. And sure, that’s true: nothing is over until you take your last breath. What about turning the saying around: as long as there’s hope, there’s life. Because that’s how I see it. As longs as we have hope, we are alive. Even beyond death. As long as we have Jesus, we have Life. And when we have Jesus, we do have hope always. Nothing can take it away from us. Because hope…

Walking in Freedom

Walking in Freedom

Today I want to share a quote about the difference being set free and walking in freedom. It reminds us that even being saved is not all God has for us.

Live in Forgiveness

Live in Forgiveness

Jesus taught us to both give and seek forgiveness. It was that important to him. He saw something in being free of burdens and being gracious. Hence we are to live in forgiveness. How can we do that? And not just visit once in awhile but truly live in forgiveness. Day in, day out. And what would this mean to our well-being and happiness? Let’s see. ‘And forgive us our debts, as we have forgiven our debtors [letting go of both the wrong…

Forgiven Sins Sink to the Bottom of the Ocean

Forgiven Sins Sink to the Bottom of the Ocean

Do you have guilt over something you’ve done in the past? Even after you’ve repented and been forgiven? I’m delivering good news to you. Once God has forgiven you, he chooses not to remember your sins anymore. How do I know? The Bible tells us God will trample our sins under his foot. So all our forgiven sins sink to the bottom of the ocean. Once they’re forgiven, they’re gone down under.  He shall again have compassion on us; He will subdue…
