Loyalty and Faithfulness

Loyalty and Faithfulness

Especially when we’ve experienced betrayal, we value loyalty and faithfulness more than ever. Without commitment, it’s hard to build anything valuable and lasting. This is also true in faith matters and this is why we are called to loyalty to God. When we first turn to God, then he can save us with his glorious grace. And when we keep on facing God, he can truly transform us with his loyal love. God’s love is meteoric,     his loyalty astronomic, His…

God Is Faithful

God Is Faithful

Our God is so awesome. We are so blessed because our God does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. We can count on him to do what he has promised to do. God is faithful in all he does. Did you hear that? God is faithful in all he does, the Bible tells us so. For the word of the Lord is right and true;     he is faithful in all he does. (Ps. 33:4, NIV) The Lord is trustworthy in all he…

Capacity for Faithfulness

Capacity for Faithfulness

What do you think? Do we have a capacity for faithfulness and obedience? I can still hear some people trying to assure me that it is impossible for a person to be faithful in marriage. I strongly disagree. We are called to faithfulness by God, granted a capacity for obedience by God and we are empowered by the Spirit of God. God wanted to teach this to His people and told Jeremiah (in Jeremiah 35) to invite the Recabites to a…

Are You God-Loyal? Always and Forever?

Are You God-Loyal? Always and Forever?

How do you rate loyalty? How important being loyal and faithful is to you? They are extremely important to me. I think any relationship needs loyalty and faithfulness, otherwise there’s no trust and intimacy. This also applies to our relationship with God, don’t you think? Not just from God’s side – for he is forever loyal and faithful – but also from our side. Are you God-loyal? Always and forever? Martin Luther has said “Where the battle rages, there the loyalty…

Guard Against Trifling

Guard Against Trifling

As we approach the Holy Week, it is time to do some self examination. Are we disobedient, slow to repent, full of doubt? Even just on a small scale? He who is faithful in a very little [thing] is faithful also in much, and he who is dishonest and unjust in a very little [thing] is dishonest and unjust also in much. Therefore if you have not been faithful in the [case of] unrighteous mammon (deceitful riches, money, possessions), who will…

Looking for Happiness

Looking for Happiness

Are you looking for happiness? Most people are. My heart cries out for all the people who are looking for happiness in all the wrong places. How people are so lost and don’t have any idea where to find what they’ve been looking for all their lives. This is nothing new under the sun though. When you read through the Bible you realize people were acting exactly the same way thousands of years ago than they do now. People are…

Trained in Greed or a Creed?

Trained in Greed or a Creed?

Are you trained in greed or a creed? One alphabet makes a big difference, doesn’t it? The difference is as big as between day and night or life and death. How do you live your life? Are you becoming an expert in greed or are you training yourself in God’s ways? What are you teaching your children? Greed or a creed? They have hearts trained in greed. Accursed children! (2 Peter 2:14b, NRSV) This verse got my attention this morning….

How to Be Faithful in the Christian Walk

How to Be Faithful in the Christian Walk

Often I am asked how to be faithful in the Christian walk. People think there is some sort of magical formula that you need to know. But, no, there isn’t. The Christian walk is far easier than that. It’s about abiding in the Holy Spirit all day long. It’s about waking up in the morning and greeting God with “Good morning, Daddy! What do you want me to do today?” and ending our day with “Thank you, Jesus!”. The Christian…

Just Like Leah

Just Like Leah

Somehow I had always felt sorry for Leah because she was the unwanted bride. Her relationships with her father, her sister, and her husband were difficult to say the least. But as I dug into the story of Leah little deeper, I found out that there was no need to be sorry for her. Leah was quite a woman of faith despite of all the rough circumstances in her life. When the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened…

Trouble Is Normal

Trouble Is Normal

God’s promises are not too good to be true. Jesus even promised something that some of us wish he hadn’t. Jesus told us that in the world we will have trouble, tribulation, and trials. But that’s not the end of it. Jesus also told us that he will be with us until the end. He told us that he deprived the world of power to harm our souls. Read for yourself! I have told you these things, so that in…
