Is God Distant or Is He just Silent?

Is God Distant or Is He just Silent?

Many people say God feels distant. But we can’t trust our feelings in spiritual matters. But I understand if God feels distant, it’s easy to also doubt his existence. And that can cause all kinds of problems. But is there anything we could do? Is God distant or is he just silent? Sometimes God is silent and then we just need to wait. We all get dry spells along our spiritual journey, the trick is to know what to do…

The Eternal Perspective

The Eternal Perspective

How do you feel about the events of Good Friday? They’d be much harder to take if we did not know what happens next, right? Because we know the death of Jesus is not the end, we can take it. This is how the eternal perspective works. It brings life in the midst of death. For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in…

Blessings of Foot Washing

Blessings of Foot Washing

As Maundy Thursday approaches I’ve been pondering on blessings of foot washing. Why did Jesus wash his disciples’ feet (John 13:1-17) and how would I react to it? Would I be like Peter? First not wanting to allow Jesus to do what he wanted to do and then wanting him to wash more than necessary? I’ve always related to Peter very easily so I assume I’d be like him. Have you ever had your feet (or hands) washed as part…

Serving Him by Sharing

Serving Him by Sharing

Sometimes people ask me why I’m so driven to share the Gospel and advance the Kingdom of God any way I can. My answer is very simple. It’s all because of God’s love and his amazing grace. You see, I’ve been so cherished and loved by God that I can’t help but love God in return. And that we do by obeying him, following him, serving him by sharing his love and grace with others. God’s amazing grace has profoundly…

The Safest Place in the World

The Safest Place in the World

What is your favorite place in the whole wide world? Maybe a place where you are safe and secure and feel loved as you are? I hope you have such a place. But if not, know that you are more than welcome into Jesus’ arms. It’s not only the best place but also the safest place in the world. How come? Because it’s a place where we find rest, peace, and grace upon grace. And as Warren Wiersbe has said,…

Dimensions of God’s Love

Dimensions of God’s Love

Our God is quite a multi-dimensional God. And each of his dimensions has its own sub-dimensions. God is always more than we can even imagine. But his core being is Love and that’s why it is safe for us to lean on him. I’ve always loved the prayer found in the third chapter of Apostle Paul’s letter to Ephesians. It talks about the dimensions of God’s love. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through…

Fulfilling Love

Fulfilling Love

It’s that time of the year when love is in the air. And that’s all good. But there’s a danger in believing romantic love will make your life fulfilling. We should never put that kind of demand on anybody. Because they can’t deliver. Only God can. And that’s why only divine love is truly fulfilling love. God’s love is special, he loves us at our worst. God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners,…

Endurance, Encouragement, Hope

Endurance, Encouragement, Hope

When everything goes smoothly, it is easy to be happy. But when storms rage in the sea of life, we wail with the winds, right? What if it’d be possible to live calmly even in the middle of a tornado? What if endurance, encouragement, and hope were always up for crabs? For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have…

My Light and My Power

My Light and My Power

It’s really inspiring to hear how my texts and teachings have touched hearts (thank you for all your feedback). However, I have to admit that I feel immense emptiness and powerlessness as I get back to teaching, especially after a break. I was sharing this with God this morning and I understood that especially as empty and inadequate I was exactly the right kind of sharer of the Good News. Because it’s not about my message but about God’s Word….

Loyalty and Faithfulness

Loyalty and Faithfulness

Especially when we’ve experienced betrayal, we value loyalty and faithfulness more than ever. Without commitment, it’s hard to build anything valuable and lasting. This is also true in faith matters and this is why we are called to loyalty to God. When we first turn to God, then he can save us with his glorious grace. And when we keep on facing God, he can truly transform us with his loyal love. God’s love is meteoric,     his loyalty astronomic, His…
