Weary of Superstitions

Weary of Superstitions

It’s Friday the 13th again. And people are either joking or serious about their superstitions about the day. I am so tired and weary about this happening over and over again. I can understand that non Christians are superstitions but don’t you think Christians should know better? Earlier, before you knew God personally, you were enslaved to so-called gods that had nothing of the divine about them. But now that you know the real God—or rather since God knows you—how…

Sin Breaks Us

Sin Breaks Us

Over and over again the Bible proclaims that if we repent, God will forgive us. This grace feels too good to be true. Yet it is true. Love, grace, and forgiveness form together the very essence of God. Because we are not able to become holy on our own, God sent his only son to redeem us. Because Jesus died on the cross for our sins, we can be forgiven by grace through faith in Jesus. But if we confess…

Everything Real, True, and Free

Everything Real, True, and Free

Some people assume that God tries to take our freedom and restrict our joy. But they’ve bought the lies of the devil and they could not be further from the truth. Because God made us free. But we have been abusing the freedom by making bad choices from the start. Like Philip Yancey has said “God’s terrible insistence on human freedom is so absolute that he granted us the power to live as though He did not exist, to spit…

The Blessings of Being Yourself

The Blessings of Being Yourself

There are good reasons why you are you. God made you unique and he wants you to be true to your real self. Don’t try to be someone else, that’s not who God made you to be. Sometimes we even forget who we really are. It might not be intentional, some circumstances just have pushed our inner self to retreat. Then we need to ask God to show us who we really are, whom God made us to be. I…

Forgiveness as a Daily Occurrence

Forgiveness as a Daily Occurrence

What matters in faith journey is what we do when we fall short. Do we deny our shortcomings and start pretending to be what we are not? Or do we run to Jesus? Why is this so important? Because if we keep from admitting that we are sinners, we harden our hearts. Blessedly this is not the end of the story. God can change our hearts, we just need to ask God for forgive our sins. And I will give…

(Gal. 5:1, MSG) Did…

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? The first step into resurrection living is to let Jesus carry your burdens….

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!
