How to Hold Faith as Our Rock

How to Hold Faith as Our Rock

Do you remember the story of the wise and foolish builders? I’ve always marveled at how beautifully and simply Jesus described the importance of faith as our rock. But somehow I’ve forfeited the fact that just agreeing with Jesus does not make us wise. “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47 As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. 48 They are…

Called into Fellowship with Jesus

Called into Fellowship with Jesus

One of the things we forget or take for granted is that we are called into fellowship with Jesus. God is not done with us when we are saved. He invites us into an intimate relationship with Jesus. That’s an ongoing thing like any other relationship. And not just on Sundays. God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Cor. 1:9, NIV) We are to live our whole lives in Jesus. We need…

Faith Is a Fulfilling Way of Life

Faith Is a Fulfilling Way of Life

Very often I am asked how to live faith out in everyday life. It’s a great question, don’t you think? If you do know how to live faith out, faith is not just great theology, it’s a fulfilling way of life. And that’s what we all want, right? I’ve always thought the answer to this question is somewhat hard to explain but then I read from Ephesians how Paul explains it in two verses: In conclusion, be strong in the…

Be and Live Like Love

Be and Live Like Love

Valentine’s Day is approaching, so there is a lot of talk of love these days. That’s fine but so often we forget the most important love of all. So I enjoyed Bob Goff’s tweet the other day “Jesus didn’t tell us to become religious. He told us to be like Him, and He was love.” What a relief we don’t need to be religious. Instead, we are told to be like God, and he is love. So we need to…

God Is the Source of All Worth Having

God Is the Source of All Worth Having

Do you know why people are turning their backs to God? I have a hard time figuring this out. You see, to me, God is alive and powerful. I am constantly in awe of how he moves in our lives, how he loves us. For me, God is the source of all worth having. Hence he is the last thing I would let go of. Faith is a gift from God and it is offered to everyone. But God does…

God Wants to Bless You

God Wants to Bless You

Do you need a reminder of God’s goodwill toward you (and mankind)? Keep on reading! The Bible is full of good news but today I want to share some verses from the third chapter of the Acts. It proclaims God wants to bless you. And it reminds us of what a gift faith really is. And how faith truly is all about grace. You see, even all the good we ever do is empowered by grace and God’s goodness. Just…

Fuel for Spiritual Growth

Fuel for Spiritual Growth

Do you ever doubt God’s existence or his power? I bet you do. It’s part of our faith journey. Just know that you don’t need to hide your doubts from God. Instead, bring them to him. Ask for His help to overcome them. Then your doubts become fuel for spiritual growth instead of dragging your spirit down. “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”…

Live Like You Believe

Live Like You Believe

Today I want to remind ourselves of the resurrection reality in the everyday life of Christians. Too often we live like nothing would have changed, like the resurrection of Jesus would not have happened. But it certainly did (even though it does sound crazy, doesn’t it?) and you should live like you believe. And that’s what you want, right? So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not…

Christ in Our Midst

Christ in Our Midst

Easter season, the time between Easter Sunday and Pentecost feels particularly holy. This year I’ve been especially in awe of Jesus’ resurrection. Somehow it has permeated every inch of my soul and I am left in awe. Friends, Jesus has risen! Truly risen from death. We have the risen Christ in our midst, how amazing is that. So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another…
