United by faith with the Word of God

United by faith with the Word of God

Are you united by faith with the Word of God? This is what I was pondering on after reading the fourth chapter of the letter to Hebrews. The writer states the message they heard did not benefit them, because it was not united with faith in God by those who heard. God’s Word needs to be merged with us so it could affect and bless us. Those who are united by faith with the Word of God are one with…

Peace of God

Peace of God

What do you wish for Christmas? The most amazing gift is peace of God. It’s something the world can’t give you. Peace the world gives is something you get when you are able to retreat from your troubles. God’s peace is so strong you can feel a deep peace even in the midst of chaos. How can we attain it? By receiving it in Jesus. For a child has been born for us,    a son given to us;authority rests upon his…

Only the Fullness of God Satisfies

Only the Fullness of God Satisfies

Fullness is something we crave for, right? We yearn for it. Yet when we receive it, most often than not, we are not satisfied. We’re either too full or we crave now for something else. How come fullness is so elusive? Maybe because we look for the wrong kind of fullness. The only kind of fullness that can satisfy us is the fullness of God. Being too full of food or candy is not pleasant no matter how good the…

I-do-it-later Kind of Faith

I-do-it-later Kind of Faith

How do you respond to your computer’s update requests? Do you delay them? An hour? Until tomorrow? Next week? I keep doing it. Pushing the inevitable to a later date. Then I got thinking, do we do that to our faith too? Do we delay the needed conversion or updating of our faith? Has your faith become an I-do-it-later kind of faith? Do you delay going to God until you have got your act together or when you have more…

God Wants an Opportunity

God Wants an Opportunity

The difference between religion and faith is huge. They might look a lot alike at first but they could not be much more different. People who practice religion try to become good on their own. And people who practice faith know they can’t become good on their own. Hence they surrender to Jesus daily and by doing so let the Holy Spirit work in them. And that’s all God needs. He needs an opportunity to enter our lives. Then he…

Cast Your Burden on the Lord

Cast Your Burden on the Lord

This is a gentle reminder of remembering to pile our troubles on God’s shoulders and not our own. That’s what God wants us to do. Really. So let’s not keep on trying to manage on own. Self-reliance hinders our spiritual well-being. So cast your burden on the Lord and let him help you out. Cast your burden on the Lord,    and he will sustain you.(Ps. 55:22, NRSV) I know we’ve taught to carry our own burdens but that’s not the Christian way to…

Bring Everything to God

Bring Everything to God

One thing I’ve learned from the Bible is that we need to bring everything to God. Everything. Whatever it is that troubles us, we need to give to God. Sometimes we think God wants only the good stuff but that’s not true. God wants the whole package: the good, the bad, and the ugly. Because he knows we need Him to live according to his will. Hence, if we doubt, we give that doubt to God. Then he can come…

Friday the 13th – what to do?

Friday the 13th – what to do?

It’s Friday the 13th. What to do? How to go about it as a Christian? Well, I’d suggest you start your day with the Lord. Not because it’s Friday the 13th but because it is the best way to start any day. When we live our days with the Lord, we are safe and sound, even on Friday the 13th. How do I know? Well, the Bible tells us so. The Lord is your keeper;    the Lord is your shade at your right hand.The sun…

Let Love Come Close

Let Love Come Close

I find the gift of faith is so amazing that I have a hard time understanding why everybody does not think so. Because through faith we are all invited to come to God who is love. Why would anybody refuse to let Love come close is beyond me. Because love makes everything better (in my book anyway). I believe people either have not heard or have not understood the essence of Christianity. Most people think faith is old-fashioned or irrelevant…

Called to Grow in Faith

Called to Grow in Faith

Last week I wrote about how believing needs to begin again every morning. That’s why none of us can boast of our faith, we are all beggars of grace. But this does not mean that we weren’t called to grow in faith. Faith is not a pill we swallow once in our lifetime. Rather it is an organic connection with God we are all invited to enter. And this is where we can grow in faith. We are called to…
