Discipleship and Obedience

Discipleship and Obedience

How are your discipleship routines? Are you diligent in obeying God? Are you reading your Bible even when you don’t feel like it? You answers tell a lot about your thoughts about how a Christian should live his/her life. Let’s see what others have said about discipleship and obedience. Eugene Peterson states “A disciple is a life-long learner: not an academic acquiring information about God, but a craftsman acquiring skills in the faith.” I do agree. Being a disciple is…

Daily Prayer

Daily Prayer

We need prayer daily. There’s no way around it. It’s not because of God we pray. It’s because we need it. (Here are my top 10 reasons why I can’t live without prayer if you’re interested). Prayer reminds us who and whose we are, why we are here and where we are going. Daily prayer gets us focused and inspired. Prayer starts our day right: When we surrender to God, everything will work out. Here I have a small collection…

The Power of Grace Has Not Diminished

The Power of Grace Has Not Diminished

Sometimes you hear people saying that Christianity is not important any more. That the message of Jesus Christ is not that much needed in today’s world. That the power of grace is weakening or, at least, its not so meaningful any more. I could not disagree more. The world seems to be going crazy. There hasn’t been a time when God’s grace was more needed than right now. And, for the record, the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ…

Losing Is Gaining

Losing Is Gaining

The world says losing is for losers. The Bible says losing is gaining. Which one do you believe? The world says you need to cumulate stuff, fame, wealth in order to be happy. The Bible says if you lose it all, you will gain everything in Christ. It sure sounds backwards. But it is the way to life everlasting. Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside…

Seek God and His Presence

Seek God and His Presence

Why should you (or why do you) seek God and his presence? Should we need any other reason that the Bible tells us so? Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually [longing to be in His presence] (1 Chronicles 16:11, AMP). Two things come to mind right away. Hope they will bless you and your relationship with Jesus. The more you experience God’s presence, the more your capacity to experience his presence grows. God wants to share…

Make Your Plans Big

Make Your Plans Big

Boldness, fearless confidence, and patient endurance seem to be the top qualities for a disciple of Jesus Christ. I so crave to embody all of them. I love quotes like “If God is your partner, make your plans BIG!” by D.L. Moody. God is big and nothing is impossible for him so we need to be ready to live large for Christ. But are we really doing that? Or are our plans too small after all? there’s no point to…

How to Adjust Your Life to God

How to Adjust Your Life to God

Do you adjust your life to God? Or do you expect God to serve you? Your answers to these questions reveal who is the center of your life. People whose lives are based on selfishness think about selfish things, but people whose lives are based on the Spirit think about things that are related to the Spirit. 6 The attitude that comes from selfishness leads to death, but the attitude that comes from the Spirit leads to life and peace. 7 So…

REthink Your Life with Jesus Christ

REthink Your Life with Jesus Christ

How would your life be different if you dared to “live as if Christ died yesterday, rose this morning, and is coming back tomorrow “(Martin Luther)? This question has been staying with me for quite a long time now. You are called to rethink your life with Jesus Christ too. Are you really following him? Would you be ready to state like Jack Hyles “I’d rather die in the will of God than to live outside of it”? When you’re…

How to Become Meek

How to Become Meek

On Monday’s post How to Seek Guidance we concluded that only when we are meek we are ready for God’s guidance. Otherwise we are not in a condition to apprehend his guidance. So we really want to become meek, right? How to do that? That’s the quest for today. First, I want to address what meekness is and is not. Then we talk about how we can become meek. Meekness is not weakness. Instead, Meekness is power under control as…

God’s Dream for You

God’s Dream for You

Do you know that God has plans for you? Do you know what’s God’s dream for you? Do you know what God has planned for you to do? Because God has a plan for you. For all of his children. First of all, God wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth (2 Tim. 2:4, AMP). God wants all to be saved but that’s not all…
