Why Friday the 13th Has Nothing on Christians

Why Friday the 13th Has Nothing on Christians

I find it interesting that even some Christians live in fear of Friday the 13th and other superstitions. Like Christ’s victory over death and evil would not mean anything. Yes, I know there are evil forces in the world. But our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has won the battle already. We are on the victor’s side. Also on Friday the 13th. So what are we going to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against…

Why I Sing Hosanna

Why I Sing Hosanna

God is always with us. What a wonderful fact, don’t you think? No matter how badly we screw up, God is right there helping us, encouraging us, guiding us. Also, God is with us when the world fails us, Jesus carries us when our own feet can’t do it. He carried even our failings, our weaknesses to the cross. That’s why I sing Hosanna. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;     it was our sorrows that weighed him down. (Isaiah 53:4,…

Follow Christ Beyond Comprehension

Follow Christ Beyond Comprehension

It’s great that we trust God. But we are also called to follow Christ. We can’t omit the cross and Christ.

How to Let Go of Fear

How to Let Go of Fear

Fear is one of the most awful things in the world. When we live out  of fear, life is not what it’s meant to be. Fear cripples us. Fear steals the joy of living. Fear paralyzes our inner beings. Exactly the opposite what God designed for us. Every bad decision I’ve ever made can be traced back to fear. Whenever I’ve made a decision out of fear it has led to a disaster. Whenever you say yes because you fear…

Fearless Faith

Fearless Faith

Fear can be paralyzing. Fear is, at least, crippling if it dominates our life. If we act out of fear, we most often make wrong choices. Fear is forced upon us by the enemy. Freedom is offered to us by Jesus. Fear or freedom? I choose freedom. I choose fearless faith in Jesus that brings freedom. Fearless faith is utmost confidence in God. Does it exist? Is it fact or fiction? Faith is always a gift that we need to…
