The Key to Know God

The Key to Know God

There is a need within each of us to know God. We search to know God whether we realise it or not. There are a lot of New Age stuff going on that offer different ways to find God.

Volcanic Ash: Sinners Wanted

Volcanic Ash: Sinners Wanted

The only requirement for becoming a Christian is to be a sinner! What? Yes, only sinners need a savior. So, a sign at a church could be “Sinners wanted, Inquire within”.

(Re)making Jesus Christ the Center of My Life, part 3/5.

Our first step (part 1) towards making Jesus Christ the center of our lives was focusing on God instead of ourselves. The second step (part 2) was repentance. From there we move on to confessing our sins and asking for Christ to cleanse us inside out because If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins…
