Words Have Power

Words Have Power

This week I’ve been noticing how important it is to decide whom or what kind of talk we want to listen to. Because the messages we receive change us. Words have power, much more than we think. Actually, the whole universe was created by the word of God, Jesus. In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. (John 1:1, AMP,*) By faith we understand that the worlds were…

Pace with Grace

Pace with Grace

One of the secrets of living well is pacing. Life can get very busy as you very well know. If we are not careful, our life easily spins out of control. And that’s not good, right? So, if we want to live well, we need to learn to pace with grace. How can we do that? We need to remember the Christian journey is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. Hence we need to pace with grace. Otherwise, we will…

Delights in Impossibilities

Delights in Impossibilities

We love opportunities because they represent hope, right? And that’s why when a window of opportunity closes, we start to panic as despair starts to take hold of us. But losing an opportunity is not the end of the world. It might feel that way but it’s not true. We need to remember we have – as Billy Sunday has put it – a God who delights in impossibilities. And with him anything is possible. Jesus looked at them and…

Build Each Other Up in Faith

Build Each Other Up in Faith

There is so much negativity going around that it’s tempting to just give up. But that is not a solution. Instead, we are called to go against the grain and build each other up in faith. This seems to be a novel concept these days. But what if we build our lives on faith and extended love even to our enemies? Our world would become a better place for sure. And then we would not even be tempted to give…

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…

Grace Is God’s Power for Us

Grace Is God’s Power for Us

Are you struggling with life? Or are you at the end of your rope? I have good news for you. First of all, you are loved. And, second of all, God wants to help you. I know, it is a bit astonishing. But God did not send Jesus to save you and then leave you to manage on your own. The Holy Spirit is here to help us out. We just need to ask for help. This is not an…

Walking in Freedom

Walking in Freedom

Today I want to share a quote about the difference being set free and walking in freedom. It reminds us that even being saved is not all God has for us. He wants us also keep on walking in freedom and live in light and love. Because he has provided everything for us to do so. Even walking in freedom is not to be done on our own power but in his strength and by his grace. This is Christian…

Little Is Much when Jesus Is in It

Little Is Much when Jesus Is in It

Sometimes we frown on our lives because they are too plain or small to our liking. Like big and bold would somehow be the only acceptable way to live. I disagree. One’s rowdiness, or even successfulness, does not necessarily produce a meaningful life. And the amount of attention you get does not tell the value of your life. Because your value comes from the Lord, not from the size of your following or popularity. The world might differ but little is…

Grace from Start to Finish

Grace from Start to Finish

Sometimes we forget how big of a gift and privilege grace really is. We easily take it granted because it was given freely to us. And we forget how amazing it is that God – who is holy and almighty – does everything to make it possible for sinners to come to him. It’s grace from start to finish. It’s his idea and it’s his power that makes it happen. But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave…

Strong in Christ

Strong in Christ

It is quite a faith journey to learn to celebrate your weaknesses. Celebrating is not our first response to our weaknesses. But that’s what the saints who have gone before us have taught us. First, the apostle Paul and then many others. Watchman Nee summed it up this way “Outside of Christ, I am weak; in Christ, I am strong.” We truly are weak in ourselves but so strong in Christ. Hence, we don’t need to hide our weaknesses but…
