Self-Righteousness Is Ugly

Self-Righteousness Is Ugly

Ecclesiastes advises us not to be too righteous (Ecc.7:16). What do you make out of that? Righteousness is a good thing, isn’t it? Of course, it is. Righteousness by God’s grace is the best thing ever. But this verse doesn’t talk about that kind of righteousness but unhealthy kind. Yes, there is such a thing. Self-righteousness is ugly. Be not [morbidly exacting and externally] righteous overmuch, neither strive to make yourself [pretentiously appear] overwise—why should you [get puffed up and] destroy yourself [with presumptuous…

The Kingdom and the Power and the Glory

The Kingdom and the Power and the Glory

Do you value the Lord’s Prayer? It is a fixed part of worship services and also a regular part of my family’s evening devotions. Jesus himself taught it to us. It is wonderful that we can approach God as our own Father and we can address him informally, ask him whatever we need and surrender to his care. As a friend of my youth once said ‘if something has been forgotten when prayed in our words, the Lord’s Prayer will cover…

No Add-Ons to Faith

No Add-Ons to Faith

As Western culture becomes increasingly more secular, we are facing the same problems as the Israelites in the Old Testament. My heart has been breaking for quite some time now for Christians who start to dabble with angels cards, crystals, manifesting, you name it. They look for anywhere but Christ to get answers or fulfillment for their yearnings. Why do they do that? Because they are not familiar with the power of God or the fire of the Holy Spirit. Somehow they…

Grace Is God’s Power for Us

Grace Is God’s Power for Us

Are you struggling with life? Or are you at the end of your rope? I have good news for you. First of all, you are loved. And, second of all, God wants to help you. I know, it is a bit astonishing. But God did not send Jesus to save you and then leave you to manage on your own. The Holy Spirit is here to help us out. We just need to ask for help. This is not an…

Do not Let the World Fool You

Do not Let the World Fool You

I think I’ve been living in denial. You know, thinking the western world would not be so immoral or post-Christian. But a few things have forced me to open my eyes and the view is daunting. Lord, have mercy on us. I can see why people start questioning the Bible and their beliefs when everyone around them is living like Jesus never existed. But they are mistaken. Please, do not let the world fool you. Do not let the world…

The Secret of Christian Living

The Secret of Christian Living

Do you want to know the secret of Christian living? How can some people live according to the will of God? The fact is no one can live up to the high standards. But would you rather lower the expectations of Christian living than learn the secret of Christian living? I hope you choose the latter option. Because even if Christian living is impossible for us, it’s very possible for God. And he provides us everything we need for victorious Christian…

Included in Christ

Included in Christ

Are you included in Christ? If yes, you’re part of a very rich inheritance. All the riches of Christ are yours when you heard the good news of your salvation, and as a result, believed in Him. If no, know that all are included in the invitation to come to Christ. All are welcome just as they are. Christ has everything you need to be made right with God and even that is not all. He has everything to heal…

God Provides

God Provides

Some people say God’s provision is not true. I disagree. Some people say God will make you rich. I disagree with that as well. God does not promise anywhere in the Bible he’d give all you want. But has promised to take care of us and give us all we need. There’s a huge difference. God provides for what we need, not for what we want. And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in…

How to Be Prepared for Tough Times

How to Be Prepared for Tough Times

Often we have big why questions when horrible things happen. But that question does not help us to deal with disasters. Because we can’t understand why certain things happen. Some of the evil things are caused by humans, directly or indirectly. But there are a lot of mysterious, inexplicable suffering in the world too. Whatever the cause of the current suffering is, taking it all in is taxing. Then it’s just time to lean on God, trust Him for seeing…
