Jesus Gives You Inner Peace

Jesus Gives You Inner Peace

Lately, inner peace seems to be it. Famous people tell here and there how they’re seeking and planning on achieving inner peace. But, my friend, do you know you what? You can’t earn or achieve inner peace. You receive it as a gift from Jesus. Yes. Jesus gives you inner peace. By grace. Christianity doesn’t appear very trendy and some people don’t like that God gives so many good things free. Achieving something appears so much more noble and sophisticated….

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…

It Is Finished for You – but not in You

It Is Finished for You – but not in You

After vacation, it can be really hard to get back to the grind. There are of course many reasons for this. But it helps to realize perfection is not required of you. Not even on a good day and especially not right after vacation. So it’s totally okay to be slow and a bit disoriented. Even now you can rest in grace and wait for good because God is good. God has not forgotten you. Actually, he has provided everything….

Believe and Stand by Faith

Believe and Stand by Faith

Sometimes we make simple things complicated. Unfortunately, we do that to faith too. And by doing so we create a new religion of works. But salvation is really simple. So simple that even a child can understand. It’s based on the work of Jesus, not ours. Because Jesus died for our sins, we can be saved by grace through faith in Jesus. We just need to believe. And stand by faith. If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in…

Strong in Spirit

Strong in Spirit

Are you strong in spirit? Would you like to be? And what does it mean to be strong in spirit anyway? Let’s find out. John the Baptist – whose birth many churches are celebrating this weekend – is a wonderful example of a person who was strong in spirit. I’m sure we can take some pointers from him. John grew up and became strong in spirit. (Luke 1:80, NLT,*) I think John the Baptist was totally focused and dedicated to his…

Redeemed Life

Redeemed Life

I have a question for you. What does it mean to you to be a Christian? Is your life somehow different? I hope so. Why would you otherwise claim to be a Christian if not for a redeemed life, right? William Wilberforce has said “It makes no sense to take the name of Christian and not cling to Christ. Jesus is not some magic charm to wear like a piece of jewelry we think will give us good luck. He…

How to Integrate Resurrection into Our Lives

How to Integrate Resurrection into Our Lives

I love spring and the joy of Easter season. I think all Christians do. But how could we bring this joy, this power into our everyday life? So that we could continue to live joyfully and freely as we are meant to do. This is the million dollar question. How can we integrate resurrection into our lives? Even though too many still think so, salvation is not just about getting into heaven. With the words of Randy Clark: “Jesus died…
