Death as the Doorway to Eternity

Death as the Doorway to Eternity

Life is complicated, isn’t it? When you feel you’re getting hang of it, something happens and everything changes and you’re once again trying to cope. You don’t know how long you will live either. Life sure is unpredictable. When you’re young, life seems endless but the older you get, the shorter life seems to become. What to do then? How do you handle aging? Is death something that will take away all your fun or could it be something more…

Do Not Detain Grace

Do Not Detain Grace

I experienced grace this morning. I go to a group gym every Monday and Friday. This time I had forgotten to reserve my place. There I was ready to exercise and my name was not on the list. Somehow I had not even realized I had forgotten it. Needless to say I felt frustrated and stupid. But the trainer extended me grace and allowed me in without reservation. It felt very, very good. It was undeserved grace, pure and simple….

Christianity Is Futuristic

Christianity Is Futuristic

Some people tell me Christianity is old-fashioned. Do you know what? I think they got it all wrong. Christianity is not old-fashioned. Christianity is futuristic. Christianity is just ahead of the times. My plans aren’t your plans, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord. Just as the heavens are higher than the earth,     so are my ways higher than your ways,     and my plans than your plans. (Isaiah 55:8-9, CEB,*) You see, if we try to be up…

Living from the Perspective of Eternity

Living from the Perspective of Eternity

Lately I’ve been trying to do each day at least one thing that will make me happy the next day. This has had an impact on my life. This has helped me to do things that I truly value. Try it yourself, it will be bless you. But I also want to challenge you a bit further. This world is no all there is. What if we did each day at least something that will make us happy in eternity?…

You Are Dust

You Are Dust

Even though the world around us is full of marks of death and dying we try to deny our own mortality. We like to live in La-La Land and pretend we are not aging and our life will go on forever. But the sooner we face the reality: we are dust and we will return to dust, the better we can embrace living fully. Like a parent feels compassion for their children—    that’s how the LORD feels compassion for those…

Hunting 4 the Perfect Christmas Gift

Hunting 4 the Perfect Christmas Gift

This time of year the hunt for the perfect Christmas gifts is on. I find this hectic shopping season a bit ironic. Because I strongly believe that we can’t buy the perfect Christmas gift. It is free for all. We can find what ever we’ve been looking for only in Jesus. This free gift of Jesus is bigger and more life-giving than we can ever imagine. Jesus is not just a sweet baby at Christmas. Jesus was crucified on the…

Death Is Not What It Seems

Death Is Not What It Seems

God gave us different seasons. Not only in the nature but also in our lives, even in his presence in our lives. If we understand different times as seasons we are more willing to embrace them as they come. But do we need seasons? I think we do. The change of a season in our lives or in the nature wakes us up to see that time flies, that everything is not same old, same old forever. It is so…

Any Chance 4 Eternity?

Any Chance 4 Eternity?

I love the Bible. But it does condemn me pretty much on every single page. What to do then? Do I have any chance 4 eternity? Do you remember the story of the rich man who asked what he needs to do to get eternal life? Jesus lovingly told him to sell everything, give it to the poor and follow him. The man’s face clouded over. This was the last thing he expected to hear, and he walked off with…
