Willingness in Faith

Willingness in Faith

I’ve always marveled God’s willingness to wait for us to get ready to do his will. Willingness in faith is not self-evident, it’s a choice. God does not force us against our will. It’s called love. Yet we so often abuse that love. But when we finally are ready to accept it, we are amazed by its sweet power. I’ve come to understand God’s will for us is the ultimate best. Yet we rebel. We are not willing to surrender…

My Take on Obedience

My Take on Obedience

Obedience is not a buzzword. Nowadays everyone wants to be independent and do whatever they want. That’s why obedience is not very fashionable. And because faith is trusting and obeying God, faith is not very fashionable either. But faith in Christ gives us something eternal, something that never goes out of fashion. With the words of Paul, the gospel “is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16, NIV). The blessings of obedience are out of…

Living Out Divine Power

Living Out Divine Power

Do you ever wonder how you can remain a faith-filled Christian in this post-modern, post-Christian world? If we focus on the culture around us, the task is quite daunting for sure. But if we focus on faith and the Giver of Faith, we will be just fine. Because faith is much more than a bunch of dogmas. Faith is about living out Divine power. For you have been born again [that is, reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, and set apart…

The Sacrifice We Trust

The Sacrifice We Trust

As we approach Easter, it is good to contemplate on the sacrifice of Jesus and what it means for us. And how it shows in our lives. Or does it at all? Is Jesus’ death on the cross the sacrifice we trust or is it the sacrifice we dust once a year? These thoughts were inspired by this P.T. Forsyth’s quote “Christianity is not the sacrifice we make, but the sacrifice we trust.” It helps us to understand Christian faith…

Serving Him by Sharing

Serving Him by Sharing

Sometimes people ask me why I’m so driven to share the Gospel and advance the Kingdom of God any way I can. My answer is very simple. It’s all because of God’s love and his amazing grace. You see, I’ve been so cherished and loved by God that I can’t help but love God in return. And that we do by obeying him, following him, serving him by sharing his love and grace with others. God’s amazing grace has profoundly…

Fellowship with God

Fellowship with God

This post started in the most peculiar way. In a dream, I was writing a post using a quote by Andrew Murray. So this morning I decided I needed to check out his writings again. And I fell in love with this quote about the gloriousness of fellowship with God. “The giver is more than the gift; God is more than the blessing. And our being kept waiting on Him is the only way for our learning to find our…

The Holy Spirit Backed Influence

The Holy Spirit Backed Influence

The Cambridge Dictionary defines influence as “the power to have an effect on people or things”. We’d like to think we do not have any influence not so ever to be free to do whatever we like. But, no, that’s not how it works. We influence and we are influenced by people we meet and by things we read and watch. So what to do? We need to choose what kind of person we want to become and what kind…

My Light and My Power

My Light and My Power

It’s really inspiring to hear how my texts and teachings have touched hearts (thank you for all your feedback). However, I have to admit that I feel immense emptiness and powerlessness as I get back to teaching, especially after a break. I was sharing this with God this morning and I understood that especially as empty and inadequate I was exactly the right kind of sharer of the Good News. Because it’s not about my message but about God’s Word….

Live by Faith

Live by Faith

As we rush into the New year, let’s not forget the blessings what God has bestowed upon on us. Faith is not just something for holidays. It’s meant to be lived every day. Only then we really receive those blessings. Faith is not an abstract notion or a theological argument, it’s a belief in God’s love and care. And then living as we believe. Live by faith. Consistently. For we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in…

The Meaning Behind Christmas Joy

The Meaning Behind Christmas Joy

Why is Christmas a season of joy? Is it only because people have collectively decided it’s time to be merry? Or could there be a deeper meaning behind it? Why do we commemorate a manger scene 2000 years ago? What’s the meaning behind Christmas joy? And what has Christmas joy got to do with us? Indeed. What’s the point of all this? The point is very simple and sometimes we overlook it. The same way that we might overlook the…
