Find Yourself in Jesus

Find Yourself in Jesus

If you feel you’ve lost yourself or your identity, don’t worry. God’s got your back. You can find all that you’ve lost in Jesus. Yes. You can find your lost life or soul in Jesus. It’s all safe in Jesus. Even if you’ve lost yourself, God will not lose you. So, all you need to do is to turn around and go to Jesus. You can find yourself in Jesus. He is before all things, and in him all things hold…

How to Hold Faith as Our Rock

How to Hold Faith as Our Rock

Do you remember the story of the wise and foolish builders? I’ve always marveled at how beautifully and simply Jesus described the importance of faith as our rock. But somehow I’ve forfeited the fact that just agreeing with Jesus does not make us wise. “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47 As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. 48 They are…

Called into Fellowship with Jesus

Called into Fellowship with Jesus

One of the things we forget or take for granted is that we are called into fellowship with Jesus. God is not done with us when we are saved. He invites us into an intimate relationship with Jesus. That’s an ongoing thing like any other relationship. And not just on Sundays. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Cor. 1:9, NIV) We are to live our whole lives in Jesus. We need…

Faith Is a Fulfilling Way of Life

Faith Is a Fulfilling Way of Life

Very often I am asked how to live faith out in everyday life. It’s a great question, don’t you think? If you do know how to live faith out, faith is not just great theology, it’s a fulfilling way of life. And that’s what we all want, right? I’ve always thought the answer to this question is somewhat hard to explain but then I read from Ephesians how Paul explains it in two verses: In conclusion, be strong in the…

How to Receive Grace

How to Receive Grace

Do you feel that God’s grace is not for you? That somehow you don’t qualify to receive it? The only way you don’t qualify is that you’re absolutely sinless and hence don’t need it. But there is not a person alive who is sinless. And Jesus pre-approved you personally on the cross. You’re all set to receive grace upon grace. God’s readiness to give and forgive is now public. Salvation’s available for everyone! (Titus 2:11, MSG) Okay, so God’s grace is…

The Bookends for Any Blessed Day

The Bookends for Any Blessed Day

For quite some time now I have started my day by surrendering myself, my life, and that particular day to Jesus. It has blessed me and taught me how to walk with God throughout the day. But something was still missing. God showed me I needed another habit to the end of the day. And that’s how I learned the bookends for any blessed day. What’s the other bookend then, you ask. It’s as simple as the one in the…

We Never Approach Jesus in Vain

We Never Approach Jesus in Vain

Do you need some hope for the New Year? I think we all do. We’re starting a new year and now that we’ve reviewed all that needs to be done, the tasks seem a bit daunting. We need the courage to begin and hope to lift our spirits, right? So I was delighted to see this phrase by Päivö Parviainen on Facebook: “We never approach Jesus in vain.” How true, how encouraging, how uplifting. How so, you ask. Let me…

The Future with God

The Future with God

We have only a few days left of this year. How do you feel about it? It has been a tough year so saying goodbye is not a hardship, right? But we have no idea how the new year will turn out. So it’s a bit scary, am I right? But know nothing is scary with God. Without him, the future is scary. But the future with God is supreme. With God, I am ready for anything. You see, we…

Jesus Is the Living Way

Jesus Is the Living Way

When the world gets gloomier by the minute we need to remind ourselves we have plenty of hope to compensate for any gloom and doom we encounter. I know it’s now easy but if we deliberately draw near to God, his grace will fill us with his hope. You see, Jesus is the living way. Jesus is alive and offers us hope upon hope 24/7. Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood…

You Are Dear to God

You Are Dear to God

Last week, I was preparing a talk for the last Sunday of the church year and as I read a little background on the text of the Old Testament book of Daniel, I came across these insanely wonderful verses. They spoke to me right away and I feel like this will bless you too. Believe me, my friend, you are dear to God. Then the one (Gabriel) whose appearance was like that of a man touched me again, and he…
