Bringing Out the God-Colors in the World

Bringing Out the God-Colors in the World

You all know how much I love the Word of God. I just love being surprised over and over again. I adore how something just jumps out to me. No other book compares to the Bible. It is the living and active word of God here and now. No matter how many times you have read the Bible it always stirs new things. This morning I was caught up with this particular passage in Matthew 5: “Here’s another way to…

Receiving the Grace of Christ: Amazing Race or Amazing Grace?

Receiving the Grace of Christ: Amazing Race or Amazing Grace?

Is receiving the grace of Christ an amazing race or amazing grace? It is a relief to know it does not require to be the winner of the amazing race to receive the grace of Christ. There is nothing we can do to earn the grace of Christ. It is the amazing gift from God; it is amazing grace. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when…

Stiched with God’s Grace

Stiched with God’s Grace

“For you created my inmost being;  you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (Psalm 139:13, NIV)God, indeed, sticthed us together in our mothers’ wombs but that is not the end of the story. God is calling us to be daily stiched with God’s grace. The first step is to surrender to God’s will. Because, as Martin Luther states it: “God creates out of nothing. Therefore, until a man is nothing, God can make nothing out of him”. ~Martin Luther…

How to Serve God – Lessons I Learned from John the Baptist

How to Serve God – Lessons I Learned from John the Baptist

The Bible stories of John the Baptist have astonished me ever since I was a child. I’ve come to admire John the Baptist for several reasons. How he was called before he was born, how he did powerful, bold but humble ministry, and how his head was brutally cut and offered on a platter. I’ve always felt that John the Baptist was an example how we should serve God. John was chosen for his ministry before he was born. He…

Called to Live in Light

Today, I’m honored to be guest blogging at faith-filled and inspiring Soulfari blog authored by Jay Cookingham. Thanks for this opportunity, Jay! Abundant blessings! What does following Jesus really mean? Sure, it means we’re saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and for that we give thanks to God! But how is God calling you to follow?  Because God loves and calls each and everyone of use uniquely, taking into consideration our personality and life experiences. We are not…

I Am the Vine; You Are the Branches – What Does It Mean?

I Am the Vine; You Are the Branches – What Does It Mean?

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you….

Me – A Temple of The Holy Spirit?

Me – A Temple of The Holy Spirit?

Do you have some difficult faith topics that you push away from your mind as much as you can? I bet you do. I think we all do. One of my challenging faith concepts has long time been ‘our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit’. Not because I would not agree with the statement. But because it is humbling to think that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. THE HOLY SPIRIT!!! Or didn’t you realize that your body is a…

Live Well – From the Shadows to the Substance (Quest for God’s Will, part 2/4)

Live Well – From the Shadows to the Substance (Quest for God’s Will, part 2/4)

In essence, following God, being a disciple of Jesus Christ & living in the Holy Spirit is what leads us to find God’s will. It’s not more complicated than that and at the same time it is very confusing. It takes time to learn to live in God’s grace. It takes trust to wait on God’s timing. But there is not some mystical formula we need to figure out. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to…

God vs. World

God vs. World

Here are my reflections based on Luke 22:63-23:12, MSG. It is pretty tough to read this text. It feels bad to see how terribly Jesus was treated. It feels bad to think that we are capable to do such horrible things. It feels bad to think that we would turn our backs to Jesus wanting his death when it would be for our benefit to do against God’s will. This Bible story illustrates, however, that God’s will will happen no…
