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…

God Wants an Opportunity

God Wants an Opportunity

The difference between religion and faith is huge. They might look a lot alike at first but they could not be much more different. People who practice religion try to become good on their own. And people who practice faith know they can’t become good on their own. Hence they surrender to Jesus daily and by doing so let the Holy Spirit work in them. And that’s all God needs. He needs an opportunity to enter our lives. Then he…

God’s Willingness to Help

God’s Willingness to Help

Once again I am taken by a short verse in the Bible. It amazes me how the Word of God can feed us precisely what we need most. And it’s most certainly a verse that I’ve read many times yet it still clears my head and helps me to breathe more deeply. It reminds me of God’s willingness to help me. And when I remember that I am ready to tackle anything life throws at me. When I am afraid,    I…

The Double Love Commandment

The Double Love Commandment

How do you relate to the double love commandment? What kind of feelings does it arouse in you? When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, 35 and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36 “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 37 He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first…

Cast Your Burden on the Lord

Cast Your Burden on the Lord

This is a gentle reminder of remembering to pile our troubles on God’s shoulders and not our own. That’s what God wants us to do. Really. So let’s not keep on trying to manage on own. Self-reliance hinders our spiritual well-being. So cast your burden on the Lord and let him help you out. Cast your burden on the Lord,    and he will sustain you.(Ps. 55:22, NRSV) I know we’ve taught to carry our own burdens but that’s not the Christian way to…

Bring Everything to God

Bring Everything to God

One thing I’ve learned from the Bible is that we need to bring everything to God. Everything. Whatever it is that troubles us, we need to give to God. Sometimes we think God wants only the good stuff but that’s not true. God wants the whole package: the good, the bad, and the ugly. Because he knows we need Him to live according to his will. Hence, if we doubt, we give that doubt to God. Then he can come…
