Great crowds came to him, bringing with…

Let Yourself Be Renewed

Let Yourself Be Renewed

Too often we think it is our job to renew our mind. We put it on our to-do list and forget it under the pressures of everyday life. And the truth to be told, if it were up to me, my mind would never be renewed. I am not into religious performances. Rather, I crave for spiritual intimacy with our heavenly Father. If you’re with me, let’s find out how you can let yourself be renewed. Instead, let the Spirit renew…

Grace Is Like Rain

Grace Is Like Rain

This summer has been very dry. Droughts have caused a lot of problems around the globe. No matter how advanced science becomes, we still can’t make rain. Just like the rain comes from God, so does grace. We can’t make rain, neither we can make grace or save ourselves. Also, just like it rains on everyone, so is grace meant to everyone. God is eager to pour out grace upon grace on everyone. Grace is like rain, just as pure and…

Rely on God, Not on Yourself

Rely on God, Not on Yourself

We are told from very early on to be independent and self-reliant, preferably efficient and successful. That’s what’s expected of us, right? Then comes Christianity and tells us the opposite: depend on God, not on yourself. This can be really confusing and it can be hard to go against the grain. But the Bible does not mean you would not take care of yourself. Instead, it urges us to rely on God, not on ourselves or other people or money…

Tune in to God

Tune in to God

Are you rushing around like crazy? Unfortunately, many of us do. But, you know, that way we rush through our whole lives without savoring them. It is time to take back our lives. We don’t have to rush around without purpose. There is time for everything. Especially for lingering in God’s presence and listening to him. Hence do not rush, tune in to God. How then to slow down? C.S. Lewis guides us this way “It comes the very moment you wake…

When You Are Weary, Crawl to Jesus

When You Are Weary, Crawl to Jesus

When you are totally empty, just crawl to Jesus. It doesn’t matter you have nothing left to give, you are still most welcome to Jesus. God is way more interested in you than in what you can do for him. Actually, with less of you, there is more room for Jesus. So when you’re exhausted and weary, don’t hesitate, just crawl to Jesus. Know that you can always find rest in Jesus. Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who…

Loyalty and Faithfulness

Loyalty and Faithfulness

Especially when we’ve experienced betrayal, we value loyalty and faithfulness more than ever. Without commitment, it’s hard to build anything valuable and lasting. This is also true in faith matters and this is why we are called to loyalty to God. When we first turn to God, then he can save us with his glorious grace. And when we keep on facing God, he can truly transform us with his loyal love. God’s love is meteoric,     his loyalty astronomic, His…

Enjoyment of God

Enjoyment of God

  Do you enjoy God? Is it an odd question? Maybe. But enjoyment of God is what faith is supposed to be all about. What? Yes. God longs to spend time with you and get to know you. He also wants to be known and enjoyed. If you don’t think God is delightful, you have yet not gotten to know him. Do not worry. You just have lots of joyful discoveries ahead of you. Take delight in the Lord, and he will…

Empowered Living

Empowered Living

I love to read the Bible but once in a while I have days that it does not happen. Yesterday, I was already outside heading to the car before I remembered I hadn’t read any Word of God that morning. Yes, we are busy but we can’t be that busy. So I marched back in to get my Bible so I could read even just a verse or two before heading out. I didn’t even take my shoes off (which is…

Prayer from a New Perspective

Prayer from a New Perspective

How do you define prayer? Prayer is communication with God. It is pouring out our soul to God. Also, prayer is as important as breathing for Christians. All these things are great and prayer is really awesome. But I heard yesterday a definition of prayer that led me to look prayer from a new perspective. Pastor Jämsen said yesterday ‘prayer is us turning away from our potential opportunities’. We stop trying to solve everything ourselves and turn to God to…
