Meeting Jesus Changes You

Meeting Jesus Changes You

Do you remember the story of Jesus and the woman of Samaria at the well? It is quite the story, isn’t it? Every time I read it I gain a new understanding. I won’t go into every detail here, instead, I just want to share what spoke to me loudest this time around. Meeting Jesus changes you, my friend. When we encounter Jesus, our fears disappear. The fact the Samaritan woman was at the well in the middle of the…

Let’s Anchor Ourselves in God and Let Him Guide us into the Future

So let’s anchor ourselves in God and let…

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…

Peace of God

Peace of God

What do you wish for Christmas? The most amazing gift is peace of God. It’s something the world can’t give you. Peace the world gives is something you get when you are able to retreat from your troubles. God’s peace is so strong you can feel a deep peace even in the midst of chaos. How can we attain it? By receiving it in Jesus. For a child has been born for us,    a son given to us;authority rests upon his…

Connecting the Dots Between You and Bethlehem

Connecting the Dots Between You and Bethlehem

If you’re feeling a big scrooge-y about Christmas, I have a fresh way for you to look at the Christmas celebrations. I understand you might feel delighted and thankful for Jesus but you’re not really connecting the dots between you and Bethlehem. So I am here to help you to make Christmas a wonderful celebration once again. I had been thinking of this already for a few weeks when I stumbled upon this quote from Corky Calhoun which sums up…

Good News for All Who Walk in Darkness

It feels like darkness was overcoming the world, doesn’t it? Just look outside. It’s the darkest time of year. Without snow and sunshine, it’s pitch black.

But I have good news for all who walk in darkness. The people who walk in [spiritual] darknessWill see a…

I-do-it-later Kind of Faith

I-do-it-later Kind of Faith

How do you respond to your computer’s update requests? Do you delay them? An hour? Until tomorrow? Next week? I keep doing it. Pushing the inevitable to a later date. Then I got thinking, do we do that to our faith too? Do we delay the needed conversion or updating of our faith? Has your faith become an I-do-it-later kind of faith? Do you delay going to God until you have got your act together or when you have more…

God Wants an Opportunity

God Wants an Opportunity

The difference between religion and faith is huge. They might look a lot alike at first but they could not be much more different. People who practice religion try to become good on their own. And people who practice faith know they can’t become good on their own. Hence they surrender to Jesus daily and by doing so let the Holy Spirit work in them. And that’s all God needs. He needs an opportunity to enter our lives. Then he…

Get to know God deeper

Get to know God deeper

We don’t like afflictions. Or hard times. We try to steer away from them if we can. Yet, through them, we grow and get to know God deeper. And that, my friend, is priceless. So, slowly I’ve learned to surrender my life to God without reservations, without exclusions. I – my life and all that I have – belong fully to Jesus. “I had heard of You [only] by the hearing of the ear,But now my [spiritual] eye sees You….

Cast Your Burden on the Lord

Cast Your Burden on the Lord

This is a gentle reminder of remembering to pile our troubles on God’s shoulders and not our own. That’s what God wants us to do. Really. So let’s not keep on trying to manage on own. Self-reliance hinders our spiritual well-being. So cast your burden on the Lord and let him help you out. Cast your burden on the Lord,    and he will sustain you.(Ps. 55:22, NRSV) I know we’ve taught to carry our own burdens but that’s not the Christian way to…
