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…

God Wants to Bless You

God Wants to Bless You

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. You see, even all the good we ever do is empowered by grace and God’s goodness. Just…

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…

Reasons to Praise God

Reasons to Praise God

One of the few psalms I know by heart is the shortest chapter in the very middle of the Bible. Psalm 117 emphasizes the universality of salvation and reminds us of reasons to praise God even when everything seems to go wrong. Actually, these reasons make us soar like eagles every time we let them permeate our souls. O praise the Lord, all you nations!Praise Him, all you people!For His lovingkindness prevails over us [and we triumph and overcome through Him],And…

Christ in Our Midst

Christ in Our Midst

Easter season, the time between Easter Sunday and Pentecost feels particularly holy. This year I’ve been especially in awe of Jesus’ resurrection. Somehow it has permeated every inch of my soul and I am left in awe. Friends, Jesus has risen! Truly risen from death. We have the risen Christ in our midst, how amazing is that. So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another…

Emotional Holy Week Roller Coaster

Emotional Holy Week Roller Coaster

The emotional Holy Week roller coaster starts with Palm Sunday and its sweet taste of success and popularity as the crowds cheer Jesus on as he entered Jerusalem. It follows with the bitter taste of failure and betrayal as Jesus is crucified on Good Friday. Thankfully, the ride does not end there. We finish the tour with the elated resurrection joy on Sunday. How do you deal with all this? Jesus takes all our false expectations, all our self-righteous thoughts,…
