Walking in Faith: A Step at a Time

Walking in Faith: A Step at a Time

Often I am asked how to be faithful in the Christian walk. People think there is some sort of magical formula that you need to know. But, no, there isn’t. Christian walk is far easier than that. It’s waking up in the morning and greeting God with “Good morning, Daddy! What do you want me to do today?” and ending our day with “Thank you, Jesus!”. Our lives get in step with God and all others by letting him set…

Look at Your Life! Look Again!

Look at Your Life! Look Again!

Now this is what the LORD Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. You have planted much, but have harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.”   This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. (Haggai 1:5-7, NIV) Doesn’t this sound just like the…

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…

Live Humbly – Detect Divinity (Quest for God’s Will, part 4/4)

Jesus said, “Don’t bicker among yourselves over me. You’re not in charge here. The Father who sent me is in charge. He draws people to me—that’s the only way you’ll ever come. Only then do I do my work, putting people together, setting them on their feet, ready for the End. This is what the prophets meant when they wrote, ‘And then they will all be personally taught by God.’ Anyone who has spent any time at all listening to…

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…

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…

Looking For God’s Will?- Steep Yourself in God-Reality (Quest for God’s Will, part 1/4)

Looking For God’s Will?- Steep Yourself in God-Reality (Quest for God’s Will, part 1/4)

Jesus is calling you and me to be his followers:“Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat—I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? (Luke 9:23-26, MSG) Jesus has…

Genesis – What I Learned This Time Around

Nicolas Poussin. Eliezer Meets Rebecca. 1659-1661. Oil on canvas. Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, UK.Are you one of the people reading through the Bible in 2010? How is your reading going? I have struggled to find my way to do it. First, I realised that I need to keep a spiritual journal to report my questions and insights along the way. It has helped a lot. I have this tendency to always dig deeper. It’s fine but this way it takes forever…

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…
