The Sacrifice We Trust

The Sacrifice We Trust

As we approach Easter, it is good to contemplate on the sacrifice of Jesus and what it means for us. And how it shows in our lives. Or does it at all? Is Jesus’ death on the cross the sacrifice we trust or is it the sacrifice we dust once a year? These thoughts were inspired by this P.T. Forsyth’s quote “Christianity is not the sacrifice we make, but the sacrifice we trust.” It helps us to understand Christian faith…

Living in the Realm of the Spirit

Living in the Realm of the Spirit

Today I’ve been inspired by Lance Wallnau’s quote. “Remember that you are not practicing a sterile system of principles, but following a dynamic person who makes Himself real to you through His indwelling Holy Spirit.” I could not agree more. You know, religion does not save you. But Jesus does. The real question is: do you live in the realm of the Spirit or not? You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of…

Grateful for Grace

Grateful for Grace

The longer I live, the more grateful I am for grace. Because the older I am, the better I know myself. And that picture is not pretty. I am hopeless at making myself better. I am clueless to make anything happen. I am powerless to help myself. That’s why I am so thankful for Christ who doesn’t wait for me to get my act together. Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn’t, and doesn’t, wait for…

A Passover from Death to Life

A Passover from Death to Life

Good Friday holds a deep meaning in the life of a Christian. It is a passover from death to life. This came through Jesus’ death on the cross. But how could this event have such a huge impact on the lives of Christians? Let’s go back in time few thousand years. In the book of Exodus, God helped the children of Israel out of slavery in Egypt by inflicting ten plagues. The tenth and worst of the plagues was the…

How to Deal with Dirt

How to Deal with Dirt

Life is sometimes really yucky. Sometimes it really feels that all we do is shoveling dirt. How could we conquer the mount of dirt in our lives? How should we  respond to all the dirt thrown our way? One thing is certain. If we store inside of us all the accusations or wrong doings we’ve experienced,  we will burst or, at least, feel yucky. We need to learn to deal with the dirt in our lives. Otherwise we will drown…

What Is The Meaning of Good Friday

What Is The Meaning of Good Friday

It’s Good Friday, the day we commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus. Why did Jesus have to die on the cross? What’s the meaning of Good Friday anyway? Here it is in a nutshell: Just as one person did it wrong and got us in all this trouble with sin and death, another person did it right and got us out of it. But more than just getting us out of trouble, he got us into life! One man said no…

Prayer Renews Our Strength

Prayer Renews Our Strength

Prayer is such an awesome gift for us. We just neglect it too often. We somehow don’t believe enough in its power. But can we afford not to pray? I don’t think so. I have written a post about my reasons why I can not live without prayer. Prayer simply invites God into our lives. Hence prayer enables us to be human and leaves everything else to God. Prayer is also an antidote for anxiety and a power tool in God’s…

What Does the Ascension of Jesus Teach Us?

What Does the Ascension of Jesus Teach Us?

Today it’s been 40 days since Easter. Something very important happened on this day. Something worth of celebrating. Something that establishes Jesus as Lord of all. Something that affirms our identity and place in God’s plans. As a result, those who had gathered together asked Jesus, “Lord, are you going to restore the kingdom to Israel now?”Jesus replied, “It isn’t for you to know the times or seasons that the Father has set by his own authority. Rather, you will…

Jesus – Connecting God and Humans

Jesus – Connecting God and Humans

People try to fill the emptiness they feel inside with so many different things without succeeding. One way to avoid feeling emptiness is to stay extremely busy and connected with the world all the time. Hence they don’t have time to ponder why they are so restless and unhappy. But if you don’t take time to sit still, you can’t really hear God. And like Augustinus has said it so well “God, you have made us for yourself, and our…
