Life on-demand

Life on-demand

Modern people would like to think there’s no sacrifice or compromise needed in anything. We would all like to be able to choose what we like and be perpetually happy. No sadness or sacrifices, instead, we want a happy ending in everything. But that’s not how life works. We can’t oust sadness no matter how much we’d like that. There is no such a thing as life on-demand. We all know everyone’s life is touched by sadness. It might be…

Evidence of the Power of Grace

Evidence of the Power of Grace

It’s no secret I adore God and his amazing grace. I’m in awe of its power and crazy about the fact it is meant also for God’s children. For you and me. It is wonderful to be saved by grace through faith in Jesus for sure. But is that all grace is? Shouldn’t there be some evidence of the power of grace in our lives too? I think so. That’s why I was so delighted to stumble upon this tweet…

Seven Tips to Deal with Challenges

Seven Tips to Deal with Challenges

Life is full of ups and downs. We’d prefer not to have many downs but that’s not life. Perpetual sunshine is waiting for us in heaven. Meanwhile, there will be lots of rain and all kinds of life challenges. How to deal with them, that’s the key here. Joy is not the absence of demanding life events, it’s the ability to deal with them. Okay, you say. How can we do that? The main thing whenever you meet any kind…

Back to God

Back to God

When we read the Bible prayerfully, the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to see things from a fresh perspective. I share you one of my revelations. For long time I kept wondering how on earth the Israelites wandered around the desert for 40 years. Why did they have hard time believing and trusting in God? Why did they not turn back to God? Have you had similart thougths while reading of the adventures of the Israelites in the desert? And…

Turning Tables

Turning Tables

Do you remember the Bible story of Jesus overturning the tables of the money changers? It used to puzzle me yet amaze me at the same time. Why would Jesus do it? And what would turning tables mean in my life? Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. (Matthew 21:12, NIV) I think Jesus was angry that people were…

Pace with Grace

Pace with Grace

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…

Christian Hospitality

Christian Hospitality

Have you ever been touched by someone’s hospitality? Good for you. Christian hospitality at its best is profoundly touching. I am in the learning process of this scriptural and spiritual way of serving others. I want to practice Christian hospitality myself. How about you? Do not forget or neglect or refuse to extend hospitality to strangers [in the brotherhood—being friendly, cordial, and gracious, sharing the comforts of your home and doing your part generously], for through it some have entertained…

Called to Grow in Faith

Called to Grow in Faith

Last week I wrote about how believing needs to begin again every morning. That’s why none of us can boast of our faith, we are all beggars of grace. But this does not mean that we weren’t called to grow in faith. Faith is not a pill we swallow once in our lifetime. Rather it is an organic connection with God we are all invited to enter. And this is where we can grow in faith. We are called to…

How to Live to God

How to Live to God

As I was reading Paul’s letter to the Romans today, I started wondering what it means to live to God as Jesus did. And how to do it. Because that’s what Christian living is supposed to be, right? The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. (Romans 6:10-11, NIV, emphasis added). Within an hour I laid…
