United by faith with the Word of God

United by faith with the Word of God

Are you united by faith with the Word of God? This is what I was pondering on after reading the fourth chapter of the letter to Hebrews. The writer states the message they heard did not benefit them, because it was not united with faith in God by those who heard. God’s Word needs to be merged with us so it could affect and bless us. Those who are united by faith with the Word of God are one with…

Live Your Life by Faith

Live Your Life by Faith

I love knowing God knew me before I was born. He knows me thoroughly because he made me. None of us is alive by accident. We are alive because God called us into being. Just think about it! You are God’s beloved child and your life has a meaning – and purpose. So lift your head high and rejoice. Live your life by faith. Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the…

The Process of Becoming a Person of Faith

The Process of Becoming a Person of Faith

I find it a huge blessing to know perfection is not required for Christians. Martin Luther has said, “A Christian is never in a state of completion but always in a process of becoming”. We are in the process of becoming a person of faith. God is at work in us. We are becoming what God created us to be. Unfortunately, we are able to hinder the process through our decision making. If we always choose things based on convenience,…

Undeserved Grace

Undeserved Grace

At first sight, this text has nothing to do with undeserved grace or does it? I was astonied by this year’s (B) lectionary reading. Then Peter said in reply, “Look, we have left everything and followed you. What then will we have?” 28 Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man is seated on the throne of his glory, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging…

Nothing Surprises God

Nothing Surprises God

Do you like surprises? I guess it depends on whether they’re good or bad. And, most importantly, whether you trust God or not. Life is full of twists and turns for sure. How we react to them depends on how certain we are about God’s will happening in our lives and how certain we are nothing surprises God. Because nothing surprises God. You can count on that. And he has a plan for our lives. You might wonder why he…

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…
