Only Jesus Makes You Truly Free

Only Jesus Makes You Truly Free

Some people assume that God tries to take our freedom and restrict our joy. But they’ve bought the lies of the devil and they could not be further from the truth. Because God made us free. But we have been abusing the freedom by making bad choices from the start. Like Philip Yancey has said “God’s terrible insistence on human freedom is so absolute that he granted us the power to live as though He did not exist, to spit…

Quest for God’s Will, part 1/4

Quest for God’s Will, part 1/4

How does Christian living look like? How are we supposed to spend the rest of our lives when Christ lives in our hearts? The Bible gives us some guidance: As a result, they don’t live the rest of their human lives in ways determined by human desires but in ways determined by God’s will. (1 Peter 4: 2, CEB, emphasis mine) Aha. We should look for God’s will for our lives. How do we do that? Don’t be conformed to…

Choosing Wisdom Over Wealth

Choosing Wisdom Over Wealth

I love how God comes to us. It’s always God coming to us. Just think of what happened after Adam & Eve had eaten the apple. The Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” (Genesis 3:9, CEB) God is always looking for us. And when nothing else worked, he sent his only son to us. It’s always God first. Always God coming to us. Always God loving us first. Pouring out his grace enabling…

The Throne of Your Heart

The Throne of Your Heart

Most of us can’t imagine that we’d ever reject God. But the sad truth is many of us is doing it without realizing it. When we insist living our way we are already rejecting God by our actions. The Israelites rejected God by asking for a king. The LORD answered Samuel, “Comply with the people’s request—everything they ask of you—because they haven’t rejected you. No, they’ve rejected me as king over them. They are doing to you only what they’ve…

How Is Your Heart?

How Is Your Heart?

How are the matters of your heart? Spiritually speaking, that is. When was the last time you let God examine your heart and cut away the thick calluses of your heart? This Bible verse got me examining my own heart this morning: God, your God, will cut away the thick calluses on your heart and your children’s hearts, freeing you to love God, your God, with your whole heart and soul and live, really live. (Deut. 30:6, MSG) Again we…

Change Is Hard

Change Is Hard

Have you tried to change your habits or get back into gear? Isn’t it hard? After our 2-week vacation I have had really hard time of getting back to routine of going for my meditative prayer walks at 6am. I managed to get up yesterday but missed this morning. Sigh. Larry Lea has said “Everyone wants to change, but change demands desire and discipline before it becomes delightful. There is always the agony of choice before the promise of change.”…

Choosing to Be Led by the Spirit

Choosing to Be Led by the Spirit

We all think Abraham is a great hero of faith. But even he did some stupid things. He bought the thought that he needs to help God to give him and Sarah a child! How often we do something for God because we think that’s a great idea instead of waiting for God? We would like to prove ourselves for God but that’s not the way it goes. Human connivance never achieve things God’s way. Tell me now, you who…
