Towards Spiritual Maturity

Towards Spiritual Maturity

Would you like to become spiritually mature? I bet you do. I have very good news and very bad news. Let’s tackle the bad first. There are no shortcuts available. There’s no magic pill to take away the spiritual fat. There’s no fast track to skip the long lines of the obedience school. But here’s the very good news: spiritual maturity happens by grace when we stick to Jesus day in, day out. But grow in the grace and knowledge…

Becoming Alive

Becoming Alive

Are you in the process of becoming alive? Or do you insist staying the way you’ve always been? This C. S. Lewis quote captured my attention and refueled my Biblical imagination today. How about you? Imagine turning a tin soldier into a real little man. It would involve turning the tin into flesh. And suppose the tin soldier did not like it. He is not interested in flesh; all he sees is that the tin is being spoiled. He thinks…

Using Your Time Wisely

Using Your Time Wisely

Do you use your time wisely? That’s my prayer every morning. I say ‘Good morning’ to God and surrender myself and my time to him and ask him to guide me and enable me to use my time wisely. It’s not that easy on our own, you know. Sometimes using your time wisely is doing nothing at all. Let me explain. Managing your time effectively is not necessary the same thing as using your time wisely. I find it helpful…

Is Jesus Your Life?

Is Jesus Your Life?

Is Jesus your life or does something else hold the central stage in your life? This question made me pause as I read Hannah Whitall Smith’s book The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life. She writes “Most Christians understand the principle when it comes to salvation but lose sight of it in living Christian life. Then He was our Redeemer; now He is to be our Life” We need and want salvation. But how Christ can be our Life? We…

A Continual Conversation with God

A Continual Conversation with God

The funniest thing happened to me during my morning prayer. I got a vision of what a prayer should look like. And, let me tell you, it took me by surprise. It was a vision of a person wearing a bluetooth device having an ongoing dialogue with God. And I understood that our prayer life should be like that. Like a continual conversation with God. God’s there, listening for all who pray,     for all who pray and mean it. (Psalm…

5 Tips for Christian Life

5 Tips for Christian Life

I wasn’t planning on writing a post on Hebrews 10:19-36 but these verses kept coming back to me over and over again so I finally succumbed to the challenge. This passage gives us (at least) five tips for Christian life. So, friends, we can now—without hesitation—walk right up to God, into “the Holy Place.” Jesus has cleared the way by the blood of his sacrifice, acting as our priest before God. The “curtain” into God’s presence is his body. (Hebrews…

From Desert to Oasis

From Desert to Oasis

Are you dreaming of carefree existence? Are you hoping to have a life filled with peace, trust, and quiet strength? Would you like to be safe, confident and fully alive? Don’t we all? Just too often our life resembles more a desert than an oasis though. Life without God is like living in a desert. When we are living in a desert the elements of a good life are limited. But when we allow the Spirit of God rain on…

Framing Your Life: God, Goals & Guidance

Framing Your Life: God, Goals & Guidance

One of the important decisions in life is to choose how we frame our life. Because our focus leads us to choose the elements that will define and refine us. Do we frame the troubles and disastrous elements of our lives? Or do we frame the grace of God and joys of the Lord? The choice is ours. Do we want the troubles and hardships to define us? Or do we let God define us? Living in grace does not…
