The Way of Jesus

The Way of Jesus

Oftentimes Christians seem strange. And I wholeheartedly agree. Anyone who pledges faithfulness to an invisible force must be nuts, right? But when you experience the touch of Jesus yourself, everything suddenly becomes clearer and the Bible finally makes sense. The way of Jesus is not a secret yet it is hard to understand without taking a risk and plunging in. I highly recommend it. In my experience, nothing compares to it. Call me crazy but just a drop of Jesus…

What Happens After Easter

What Happens After Easter

I don’t use any Bible reading plans. My plan is simply to read a chapter or two or three both in the Old and New Testaments every day (and, no, I don’t manage to do it every day). Once I’ve read through, I start rereading them again, usually in a different translation. So I was utterly delighted by the divine orchestrating that on Easter Monday I was reading through the last chapters of the letter to the Hebrews. It so beautifully…

Whoever Has Jesus Has Life

Whoever Has Jesus Has Life

Sometimes you hear people saying there’s no way of knowing that we really need Jesus for eternal life. They don’t believe that whoever has Jesus has life because it does not make sense to them. But to me, it does not make sense to refuse Jesus. If you’re one of these people or know someone who could benefit from knowing the answer to this dilemma, may I suggest reading a few verses from the first letter of John? According to John,…

Alive Forevermore

Alive Forevermore

How does being alive forevermore sound like? I was thrilled to read the word combination in the Bible a couple of days ago. Ever since I’ve been thinking about the awesomeness of it. And how totally dependent we are on Jesus to make it happen. You see, there is no way we can make ourselves alive forevermore. Well, we can’t even make us alive. We can’t take a single breath without God. Human beings are just that: human beings and…

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…

Beyond the Shadow of a Doubt

Beyond the Shadow of a Doubt

Do you know or do you want to know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life? The Bible is very clear on this. Especially this passage from the first letter of John spoke to me on the matter: My purpose in writing is simply this: that you who believe in God’s Son will know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life, the reality and not the illusion. And how bold and free…

Citizens of Heaven

Citizens of Heaven

Are you a citizen of heaven? How does it affect your everyday affairs? Or does it? Maybe it should. Because if Christ is in you, everything changes. But if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christfrom the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit that dwells…

Gaining the World Is So Not Worth It

Gaining the World Is So Not Worth It

Do you try to gain the esteem of the world? Are you concerned what others think of you? Would you like to please crowds? I think we all would like to be well liked. But how far are you willing to go to gain acceptance? These questions rose as I combined two very different writing prompts I received today:  ‘remember’ and ‘crowd’. Not a very likely pair. But they got me thinking. What do we need to remember? Crowd pleasing…

When Eternal Life Embraces Us

When Eternal Life Embraces Us

The Bible says that eternal life lies in knowing God. There must be something really special about knowing God. How can we do that? We can’t do it without Jesus. But Jesus died for us so we could know God. If we receive this gift of grace, we are free to get to know God. Other religions teach that we need to first become good to approach God. But Christianity boldly proclaims that all we need is Jesus. Jesus looked…

Watch Your Spiritual Diet!

Watch Your Spiritual Diet!

Too often people are satisfied with spiritual comfort food. Or even worse: junk food. But as we know, we don’t stay healthy that way. Junk food of comfort food may give us great experiences for our taste buds or give us an illusion of being well fed but we stay -in long run- malnourished. Then we don’t even crave for real food anymore. There will come a time when people will not tolerate sound teaching. They will collect teachers who…
