Worthy of God’s Love and Grace

Worthy of God’s Love and Grace

Do you consider yourself worthy of God’s love and grace? Worthy of eternal life and other God’s blessings? I hope so. Because then you’re open to God and to salvation by grace and not by merit. Let me explain. I love reading the Acts during the Easter season. It’s great to see what disciples did after the resurrection of Jesus. Today a few words from Paul and Barnabas’ message to the Jews touched my heart and got me thinking. Then…

Eternally Changeless God

Eternally Changeless God

Such human qualities as absent mindness or forgetfulness do not apply to God. Neither is he getting tired or weakening or ageing. God is on his top form as much today as he was when he created the world. Our God is an eternally changeless God. Hallelujah! Who has done this and carried it through,     calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord—with the first of them     and with the last—I am he. (Isaiah 41:4, NIV) Also Jesus…

Use God by Faith

Use God by Faith

Do you dare to bother God with your problems? Or do you think God is not interested in what is going on in your life? Too often we keep away from God because we think we should not bother God.

Our Father in Heaven

Our Father in Heaven

Jesus taught us to pray “Our father in heaven”. As Mary DeMuth points out there are no singular pronouns in the entire Lord’s prayer. Jesus did not say MY father, he said OUR father.

Because that’s what being a family is meant to be. And we…

How to Wear Light

How to Wear Light

Past few days I have had an image of God shining upon his people persistently popping in my head. So I started to explore what this image could mean. Our efforts to understand God will always fall short but we need to keep trying…because if we just get a glimpse of God’s awesomeness, we are truly blessed. God wants to shine on us. God wants to bless us. God wants to dwell in us. We are called to become children…

Called by Name

Called by Name

Do you know that God knows you by name? To God you are not a nobody.  To God you are his beloved child. To God you are a very special person. Hosea put it well: I’ll call nobodies and make them somebodies;     I’ll call the unloved and make them beloved. In the place where they yelled out, “You’re nobody!”     they’re calling you “God’s living children.” Isaiah maintained this same emphasis: If each grain of sand on the seashore were numbered…
