The Purpose of Easter

The Purpose of Easter

Do you know what is the purpose of Easter? The purpose of the resurrection of Jesus is to set you free. God arranged this for you. Christ died and was resurrected for you. So you could be truly free from your transgressions and live in God’s grace. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to set us free from the present evil age, according to the will…

The Spiritual Immune System, part 2

The Spiritual Immune System, part 2

Last week we started our journey towards healthy spiritual immune system. I presented a formula for spiritual health. God (the Spiritual Immune System) : Father (Rest) + Son (Nutrition)+ Holy Spirit(Exercise). We need to have a healthy diet and a good balance of exercise and rest. All that together equals as the spiritual immune system. [This second part of the series will be about the Father/Rest in the equation. The third part will be about the Son/Nutrition and the fourth…

How to Live to the Max

How to Live to the Max

Do you know how to live to the max? Isn’t that every person’s dream? Yet so many of us fail miserably. We don’t really know how to go about it. Life lived to the max seems like an enigma. Should it be this difficult? Of course not. How then do we mess up our lives so badly? Most likely we look in the wrong places or drift into easy life. How can we then learn to live to the max?…

Four Steps to Faithful Living

Four Steps to Faithful Living

How are your Christmas preparations coming along? Are you stressed out about what to wear or how to get everything done on time? Maybe it is time to take time out. Maybe it is time to see what really matters. Maybe it is time to make sure we’re not oblivious to God. But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze…

How Not to Fear Temptations

How Not to Fear Temptations

What makes you yield into temptation? If we know this, we are more likely not to yield into temptation. Because then we know for what to pray. And that’s the key to living well. When we invite God into our lives, we are empowered to victorious living. That’s why the chapter ten of Mary DeMuth‘s new book The Wall Around Your Heart  concentrates on this very important matter. Mary gives us a new way to look at temptations. She writes…

Extra Grace Required

Extra Grace Required

We all know people that either drains us of energy or drives us other wise nuts. How are we supposed to deal with these very draining persons? Especially as Christians? I’d rather not deal with them at all. But that’s not a very constructive attitude, is it? Certainly not very Christian anyway. What would Jesus say? “You’re familiar with the old written law, ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to…

Healing Balm Called Grace

Healing Balm Called Grace

Do you need healing balm? Lucky you, there’s plenty of it available. It’s called grace. It is meant for all people. And there are no other qualifications than sinfulness. Hence, I think, we all qualify. There’s no one without sin. Also none of us have a monopoly on grace. We are all just happy receivers and meant to pass it on with love. Because we all need it. One of the reasons why I love Kurt Bubna‘s new book is…

We Need to Be Redeemed

We Need to Be Redeemed

What do you think? Does God care what you do on your free time? Are there consequences for your actions? We would like to think that our body, soul, and mind are ours to do what we please. But the Bible tells us differently. If we claim that we’re free of sin, we’re only fooling ourselves. A claim like that is errant nonsense. On the other hand, if we admit our sins—make a clean breast of them—he won’t let us…

Grace in Action

Grace in Action

Do you know how grace in action looks like? It’s when someone who feels unworthy gets a glimpse of God’s love through a random spiritual act of kindness. It’s when someone for the first time, or for the 100th time, feels the grace of God because someone practiced what they believed. Grace is in action when someone forgives, loves, serves or offers grace. Grace is in action when our heart opens to receive God’s love and grace. Grace is in…

Sin versus Grace

Sin versus Grace

Do you ever choose in the battle within what’s wrong even when you know what’s right? That’s way too familiar for all of us. Even Paul wrote: I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it. (Romans 7:19-20, NLT) Do…
