But God!

But God!

I was delighted to see how enthusiastically people responded to the God’s Love Letter yesterday. People seem to crave assurance of God’s love for them. The wonderful thing is that the Bible is full of God’s unwavering love for us. Anytime you want to be assured by God’s amazing love check out some of the Bible verses that include these two little words “but God”. They’re small words but they declare God’s powerful ways to operate in this world in…

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. But the Bible tells us that there is only one way to God: Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “I am the Road, also the Truth, also the Life. No one gets to the Father apart from me. If you really knew me,…

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”. Basically, all of us, whether insiders or outsiders, start out in identical conditions, which is to say that we all start out as sinners. Scripture leaves no doubt about it: There’s nobody living right, not even one, nobody who knows the score, nobody alert for God. They’ve all taken…

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…

Change Your Life, Not Just Your Clothes!

Change Your Life, Not Just Your Clothes!

(Carl Spitzweg (1808-1885),”Ash Wednesday“) Lent is a blessed time: we can slow down and actively reflect on our spiritual journey. But there’s also this, it’s not too late— God’s personal Message!— “Come back to me and really mean it! Come fasting and weeping, sorry for your sins!” (Joel 2:12, MSG) Lent is a blessed opportunity: we are called to turn back to God and intertwine faith into our lives. Change your life, not just your clothes. Come back to God,…

(Re)making Jesus Christ the Center of My Life, part 2/5.

(Re)making Jesus Christ the Center of My Life, part 2/5.

At the moment the cock crowed for the second time. The Peter remembered that Jesus had said to him, “Before the cock crows twice, you will deny me three times.” And he broke down and wept. (Mark 14:72) Once again Peter shows us how to walk in faith. When we have sinned, we need to break down and weep. We need to repent. We need to stop living for ourselves and start living for God. We need to turn around…
