Called to Bear Witness

Called to Bear Witness

Do you know that you’re called to bear witness? When you have come to know the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and when you – by grace – believe it, you are truly free. But what are you supposed to do with this knowledge, this joy, this freedom? When you have accepted Jesus as your personal Savior, you are, just like Peter, commissioned to move beyond yourself, to bear witness that Jesus is alive and God is at work among us….

Is Jesus Your Life?

Is Jesus Your Life?

Is Jesus your life or does something else hold the central stage in your life? This question made me pause as I read Hannah Whitall Smith’s book The Christian’s Secret of a Happy Life. She writes “Most Christians understand the principle when it comes to salvation but lose sight of it in living Christian life. Then He was our Redeemer; now He is to be our Life” We need and want salvation. But how Christ can be our Life? We…

Blossoming Life

Blossoming Life

I was searching for Bible verses including the word ‘green’ and got a spiritual jolt while reading the Message version of Matthew 3:10. How about you? Does this jolt you into awareness of your own responsibility for blossoming life? What counts is your life. Is it green and blossoming? Because if it’s deadwood, it goes on the fire. (Matthew 3:10, MSG) Is your life green and blossoming? Or is it deadwood. Or something in between? I think we all want…

Faith in Everyday Life

Faith in Everyday Life

How does your faith affect your everyday life? Or does it have an impact on your day to day affairs? (I would love to hear your answers in comments).

How can we connect faith to everyday life? So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary…

Make Your Plans Big

Make Your Plans Big

Boldness, fearless confidence, and patient endurance seem to be the top qualities for a disciple of Jesus Christ. I so crave to embody all of them. I love quotes like “If God is your partner, make your plans BIG!” by D.L. Moody. God is big and nothing is impossible for him so we need to be ready to live large for Christ. But are we really doing that? Or are our plans too small after all? there’s no point to…

How to Adjust Your Life to God

How to Adjust Your Life to God

Do you adjust your life to God? Or do you expect God to serve you? Your answers to these questions reveal who is the center of your life. People whose lives are based on selfishness think about selfish things, but people whose lives are based on the Spirit think about things that are related to the Spirit. 6 The attitude that comes from selfishness leads to death, but the attitude that comes from the Spirit leads to life and peace. 7 So…

God-given Confidence

God-given Confidence

Do you know the secret of peace and joy? It is leaving all your anxieties and insecurities at the foot of the cross and banking your life on Almighty God. Then you can dance in the front of fear. Then you can sing in the presence of evil. Then you can be confident when you’re out of your comfort zone. Blessed are those who trust in the Lord     and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. (Jeremiah 17:7, NLT,…

Stop Trying and Just Do It

Stop Trying and Just Do It

Have you lately heard people saying “don’t try, just do it”? It applies to Christian living too. So often we say “I’ll try to read the Bible and take time to be with God” but then off we go and don’t do anything to make it happen. But that’s not how it works. Saying that we’ll try is not enough. We might fool others but God sees right into our heart. But I, the Lord, search all hearts     and examine…
