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…

Live Like an Heir

Live Like an Heir

Our God is an amazing God. So generous, so loving, so kind. Yet, somehow, we live many times like orphans. Like we’d be left all alone in this world to get by the best we can. But that is not so. The Bible tells us so. Jesus lives in us. The Holy Spirit is always with us. So we are to live like beloved children, not like orphans. It’s time to live like an heir! How do we do that?…

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…

Do Not Forget God’s Grace

Do Not Forget God’s Grace

No matter what is going on in your life, do not forget God’s grace. Why you ask. Because God’s grace is not just for pardon, it is also to empower you for joyful living. Without joy and God’s power in our life, we tend to forget God and his blessings and instead, barge through life on our own strength. And it will not get us far. Mark Dever has said, “forgetfulness of God’s grace is one of the greatest tools…

Right Now Is Good

Right Now Is Good

Last week was pretty rainy. One evening of these wet, chilly days I was chatting with a wonderful person. She was marveling at the budding spring nature and my reply was “as soon as this rain is over we can really enjoy it”. It’s already been almost a week since and I am still embarrassed by my comment. I can’t be such a whiner!? We were surrounded by God’s lush greenery yet I was talking about how the sun is…

Do you need a reminder of God’s goodwill toward you (and mankind)? Keep on reading! The Bible is full of good news but today I want to share some verses from the third chapter of the Acts. It proclaims God wants to bless you. And it reminds us of what a gift faith really is. And how faith truly is all about grace.

Even Sanctification Is All About Grace

Even Sanctification Is All About Grace

Do you ever think saints who’ve gone before us were some extraordinary people that you could never be? I have news for you: they were just regular folks like you and me. Really. Their secret was God’s grace and power. When we live in the Holy Spirit, amazing things happen despite us. You see, even sanctification is all about grace. Let’s look at the first Christian martyr Steven as an example: Now Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and…

God Wants the Best for You

God Wants the Best for You

Today I want to share some joy and hope with you who feel you’re drowning deeper into despair or you might feel you’ve been forgotten to endlessly wander around in the everyday maze. Know that you’re not alone or the only one who struggles with these things. Easily we think life is easy for everyone else but I’d say, for most of us, life is some sort of struggle. Through them, God is teaching us and while we wait, the…
