How to Receive Grace

How to Receive Grace

Do you feel that God’s grace is not for you? That somehow you don’t qualify to receive it? The only way you don’t qualify is that you’re absolutely sinless and hence don’t need it. But there is not a person alive who is sinless. And Jesus pre-approved you personally on the cross. You’re all set to receive grace upon grace. God’s readiness to give and forgive is now public. Salvation’s available for everyone! (Titus 2:11, MSG) Okay, so God’s grace is…

Be and Live Like Love

Be and Live Like Love

Valentine’s Day is approaching, so there is a lot of talk of love these days. That’s fine but so often we forget the most important love of all. So I enjoyed Bob Goff’s tweet the other day “Jesus didn’t tell us to become religious. He told us to be like Him, and He was love.” What a relief we don’t need to be religious. Instead, we are told to be like God, and he is love. So we need to…

God Is the Source of All Worth Having

God Is the Source of All Worth Having

Do you know why people are turning their backs to God? I have a hard time figuring this out. You see, to me, God is alive and powerful. I am constantly in awe of how he moves in our lives, how he loves us. For me, God is the source of all worth having. Hence he is the last thing I would let go of. Faith is a gift from God and it is offered to everyone. But God does…

The Spirit of Peace

The Spirit of Peace

How are you? I hope you’re doing well or, at least, you’re experiencing God’s peace. You know, it’s possible to experience peace even in the midst of the ugliest strifes. I know it’s hard to believe but once you’ve experienced God’s peace in the midst of chaos you know what I mean. God’s peace is ours if we want it. Because it’s not dependent on our outer circumstances. The Spirit of Peace is ours to be received no matter what….

The Bible Is Alive and It Speaks to Me

The Bible Is Alive and It Speaks to Me

“The Bible is alive, it speaks to me”, Martin Luther said. That’s also my experience and that’s why I am hooked on reading it. Otherwise, I’d be lost. God is amazing, he does not abandon us. He cares for us and wants us to know it. Reading the Bible is a wonderful way to be reminded of these facts. At least I do need to hear it anew every morning. How about you? As soon as I pray, you answer…

Fuel for Spiritual Growth

Fuel for Spiritual Growth

Do you ever doubt God’s existence or his power? I bet you do. It’s part of our faith journey. Just know that you don’t need to hide your doubts from God. Instead, bring them to him. Ask for His help to overcome them. Then your doubts become fuel for spiritual growth instead of dragging your spirit down. “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”…

Stop Worrying So Much – God’s Got This

Stop Worrying So Much – God’s Got This

This year the season of Lent seems to start a little earlier than usual or am I the only one who is a bit surprised? Nonetheless, I find this season of preparation a huge blessing. We need it to truly appreciate the tremendousness of Easter once it rolls around. And maybe we could stop worrying so much. God’s got this. Paul David Tripp tweeted today “The story of redemption is historical proof of the unstoppable sovereignty of God. In a…

The Source of All Comfort

The Source of All Comfort

It seems to me that what we all need right now is comfort. The pandemic has been with us almost a year and the end is not quite there yet. We need to persevere but we are exhausted. Hence we need some comfort and new strength. Otherwise, we won’t make it. But do not fear, we are in good hands. The source of all comfort is our God. All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God…

God Is Our Strength, Fortress, Refuge

God Is Our Strength, Fortress, Refuge

This year has been the oddest for sure. Holiday plans being canceled seems to be the last straw for many. But, my friend, do not be dismayed, we have ever-present help and everlasting hope. Jeremiah tells us God is our strength, fortress, and refuge. Also during unprecedented times like this. Lord, my strength and my fortress,    my refuge in time of distress.(Jeremiah 16:19, NIV,*) So whenever you start panicking or distressing, turn to God instead. This might sound too simple but it works. Yet…
