How to Be in Awe of Jesus Today

How to Be in Awe of Jesus Today

Don’t you just love reading how people flocked to Jesus? How they were in awe of him. Jesus certainly wasn’t a crowd-pleaser but his message and actions were so life-giving and profound that people were astonished. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be one in the crowds hearing Jesus teaching, to be wowed by his life-changing message? Yes, it would. It’d be wonderful to be in awe of Jesus today. Is it still possible? Great crowds came to him, bringing with…

Jesus Does Not Need a Makeover

Jesus Does Not Need a Makeover

So many people try to make Jesus something more -or less- he is. But, my dear friends, Jesus does not need a makeover. No matter how much we think it’d great if he were a bit less rough around the edges. But Jesus does not have to look cool or hip. He is perfect just as he is. Jesus does not need a makeover whatsoever, believe me, or we’d be creating an idol and that’s the last thing we’d want, right?…

We Are Healed in Jesus

We Are Healed in Jesus

Sometimes we might wonder whether God can understand what’s going on in our lives. You know, how awful it feels to get rejected or be shunned from the coffee table discussions at work. How could God understand what it feels like to lose a friend, right? But then I’m reminded that Jesus is God. And Jesus went through awful things, especially during the time we call the holy week. Jesus got rejected, shunned, cast off. His friends unfriended him, he…

Whoever Has Jesus Has Life

Whoever Has Jesus Has Life

Sometimes you hear people saying there’s no way of knowing that we really need Jesus for eternal life. They don’t believe that whoever has Jesus has life because it does not make sense to them. But to me, it does not make sense to refuse Jesus. If you’re one of these people or know someone who could benefit from knowing the answer to this dilemma, may I suggest reading a few verses from the first letter of John? According to John,…

Amen to that!

Amen to that!

What does Amen mean? Is it just a way to end a prayer or does it mean something more? Amen means ‘so be it’ or ‘truly’ and it is very appropriate to end one’s prayer with an Amen. But it can also be said after a statement that is true. Very often you hear people shout Amen when they agree with the speaker. It’s like stating ‘Amen to that’ or I agree with that. However, we should never say Amen…

Why Is Jesus Better than Santa?

Why Is Jesus Better than Santa?

Christmas is not a day for Santa to bring gifts to well-behaved kids. It’s a day when we celebrate the birth of Jesus. Actually, the birth of Jesus has such a huge impact on our lives that we celebrate it for 12 days. So, Happy Second Day of Christmas, all! Jesus is better than Santa in so many ways. For the starters, Christmas without Christ is just a big mess. Not something we want to celebrate for days for sure. But…

How Can We Receive the Gift of Christmas?

How Can We Receive the Gift of Christmas?

What is the best part of Christmas? I’m sure there are as many answers as people giving them. Very often we talk about food and gathering with our loved ones. And they are great blessings for sure. But the outer things of Christmas do not make what’s the best part of Christmas. I think the best part of Christmas is that the true message of Christmas is always valid. For everyone, everywhere. Jesus came to set people free. Hence hope…

The Best Bargain of All

The Best Bargain of All

Sometimes we overlook things that we are familiar with. We are more excited about things that seem to be exotic. Like Christianity might feel boring to you if you’ve grown up with it. You look into mindfulness to look for peace and you forget that the prince of peace is Jesus himself. You forget that he gave his all that we could have all. That’s the best bargain of all. You are familiar with the generosity of our Master, Jesus Christ. Rich…

You Have a Standing Invitation to Jesus

You Have a Standing Invitation to Jesus

Did you know that you have a standing invitation to Jesus? How wonderful is that? We are always welcome to Jesus. No matter what time is it or how badly we have messed up. Neither does it matter how long it has been since we’ve visited with Jesus. We are always welcome. Jesus keeps on inviting and is always delighted to see us. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28,…

God Wants You to Be Happy with Him

God Wants You to Be Happy with Him

Do you want to be happy? I think we all do. Too often people think that God would not want them to be happy. Like God’s goal would be to make you unhappy. That doesn’t ring true, does it? Quite the opposite is true in fact. God wants you to be happy with him. You grant him blessings forever;     you make him happy         with the joy of your presence. (Psalm 21:6, CEB) With the words of Charles Spurgeon “Man was…
