Put Your Faith in Practice!

Put Your Faith in Practice!

“Remove Christ from the Scriptures and there is nothing left”, states Martin Luther. That is so true. Without Christ there would not be a way back to God. Without Christ there would not be life and more life to come. Without Christ we would be lost. That’s why I agree wholeheartedly with Paul writing:  For my part, I am going to boast about nothing but the Cross of our Master, Jesus Christ. Because of that Cross, I have been crucified…

Crossing Back to Life

Are you discouraged? Burdened? Homesick? Burned-out? Cross back into Life! God is waiting for you to cross back home to him.

When you feed your heart and mind with its truth, you regain your perspective and find renewed strength.”(Warren Wiersbe)   Stick with what you learned…

People of the Presence of the Holy Spirit

People of the Presence of the Holy Spirit

Today my favorite quote is this one by William Blake: “I myself do nothing. The Holy Spirit accomplishes all through me.” That’s what being a Christian means. It’s not about me or my (in)abilities. People of the presence of the Holy Spirit do not need to be afraid of anything. People of the presence of the Holy Spirit does not need to bow to devil’s temptations or believe devil’s accusations of inadequacies or any other lies he wants us to…

Me – A Temple of The Holy Spirit?

Me – A Temple of The Holy Spirit?

Do you have some difficult faith topics that you push away from your mind as much as you can? I bet you do. I think we all do. One of my challenging faith concepts has long time been ‘our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit’. Not because I would not agree with the statement. But because it is humbling to think that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit. THE HOLY SPIRIT!!! Or didn’t you realize that your body is a…

Pray Until Praise Flows

Pray Until Praise Flows

Here’s a glass window picture of Jesus praying at Gethsemane. Read John 17 (MSG) and be amazed by Jesus’ mighty prayer!! This weekend God has been teaching me about praying before starting to work. I learned that there is no point to start working before praying hard. There is no point to start working until I’ve prayed until praise flows from my lips. When praise has overtaken my soul, I am ready to do God’s work. Then it is not…

An Ability to Marshal & Direct Our Energies Wisely

An Ability to Marshal & Direct Our Energies Wisely

Self-control has always been the spiritual fruit that has intimated me. Somehow it has felt like a court order, a requirement that I could never meet. Then I read about the nine spiritual fruits in the Message and I had a revelation that has changed my approach to self-control, the ninth spiritual fruit found in Galatians 5:22-24. But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an…

Living in the Presence of the Holy Spirit

Living in the Presence of the Holy Spirit

Father, Son and who? The Holy Spirit seems so untangible that sometimes we seem afraid of approaching the subject all together. But let’s check out what living in the presence of the Holy Spirit could be! Jesus told his disciples:”And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he…
