Jesus Is Willing

Jesus Is Willing

One of the core Christian beliefs is God’s omnipotence. We think God can do anything and he has done some amazing things along with the salvation history, right? Indeed. So God is able. But would you also say Jesus is willing to help you? Yeah. God is able but is he willing to help us? That’s the million-dollar question. Do you believe Jesus wants to help you? If you do not believe this, you will shy away from praying. You…

Turning Tables

Turning Tables

Do you remember the Bible story of Jesus overturning the tables of the money changers? It used to puzzle me yet amaze me at the same time. Why would Jesus do it? And what would turning tables mean in my life? Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. (Matthew 21:12, NIV) I think Jesus was angry that people were…

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…
