What Does It Mean that Jesus Is Risen?

What Does It Mean that Jesus Is Risen?

Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Yes, alleluia! But what does it mean, right? What does it mean to you when you are struggling to make ends meet? What does it mean to you who is just beginning to understand God’s love for you? What does it mean when God seems to be silent? What does it mean here and now? What does it really mean?

Christians & Friday the 13th

Christians & Friday the 13th

Does your Christian faith influence your take on Friday the 13th? Or do you still feel skirmish? It might be Friday the 13th but “This is the day the LORD acted; we will rejoice and celebrate in it!”. (Ps.118:24, CEB) Yes, let’s rejoice!

Do You Let Jesus Carry Your Burdens?

Do You Let Jesus Carry Your Burdens?

Do you let Jesus carry your burdens? Or do you still carry them on your own? Is your faith only intellectual or have you really let Jesus rule your heart? Do you trust Jesus to carry your burdens? Do you let Christ serve you, give you true freedom? Or do you still suffer alone? But the fact is, it was our pains he carried— our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us. We thought he brought it on himself, that…
