When Doubting God’s Love

When Doubting God’s Love

Today I’m writing to you who’s been struggling so long that you’ve started to doubt God’s love. I know life can be really tough. And when it keeps being that way for years, we’re tempted to start questioning even the great foundations of our lives.

Takeaway Value of Christmas

Takeaway Value of Christmas

What’s your takeaway value of Christmas? I hope it’s not just some unwrapped presents and fun memories. There’s nothing wrong with those, of course. But the meaning of Christmas is so much more than fun times with family, delicious food or beautiful decorations. The message of Christmas is this: God loves you dearly and he even sent his only son to save you and bring you back to him. And the Word (Christ) became flesh, and lived among us; and…

The Double Love Commandment

The Double Love Commandment

How do you relate to the double love commandment? What kind of feelings does it arouse in you? When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, 35 and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36 “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” 37 He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first…

We Are Loved by God

We Are Loved by God

God’s definition of success is pretty much the opposite of the definition we find in a dictionary. The Bible does not urge us to be successful. Instead, we are told to thrive towards faithfulness. Success God is talking about comes from staying in his love. And even this happens not by our own might but by God’s grace. We need to just remember we are loved by God. All else follows. But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your…

Let Love Come Close

Let Love Come Close

I find the gift of faith is so amazing that I have a hard time understanding why everybody does not think so. Because through faith we are all invited to come to God who is love. Why would anybody refuse to let Love come close is beyond me. Because love makes everything better (in my book anyway). I believe people either have not heard or have not understood the essence of Christianity. Most people think faith is old-fashioned or irrelevant…

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…
