Knowing God

Knowing God

Do you keep God at arm’s length? Is your relationship with God a long-distance one? Or do you have an intimate and close relationship with God? Is knowing God really possible? Yes, because of Jesus it is. Because of Jesus we can be made right with God. But the adventure of faith does not end there, it’s just a beginning. The real adventure is in getting to know God. Yada is a Hebrew word that means “to know” but it…

Spiritual Questions

Spiritual Questions

It’s time for new beginnings but it’s also time to evaluate the old ways. Am I living the way God wants me to live? That’s the question of the day for me. I am praying that God would show me what needs to go in order to serve him better. We are to give our lives as living sacrifices to God. We are to place all areas of our lives before God. I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg…

Ways of God Are Straight

Ways of God Are Straight

Do you blame God for the messiness of your life? Do you think it’s God’s fault that your life is complicated? Do you think it’d be God’s responsibility to keep your life smooth? You are not alone. But you are still mistaken. You see, ways of God are straight. Always. But sin makes our paths unnecessarily crooked. Hence it is not God who complicates our life. What a God! His road     stretches straight and smooth. Every God-direction is road-tested.     Everyone…

Habakkuk is a minor prophet in the Old Testament that shows us what to do when we are angry with God. O Lord, how long shall I cry for help,…

Why Faith Is Still Alive

Why Faith Is Still Alive

People who don’t know better think believing in God is just about rules, regulations, and religious behavior. If this was true, I’d be the first to quit. I am not drawn to religiousness. I am drawn to God. And not to a statue somewhere. But to the Living God: personal, relational, active. Christian faith is not about keeping alive a bunch of rituals and commemorating a fairy tale. Christian faith is celebrating the freedom we receive by grace through faith…

Balance Between Faith and Works

Balance Between Faith and Works

“Don’t just do something, sit there”.  A very wise piece of advice. But so is this one: “Don’t just sit there, do something!” What? Yes, we need them both. There is time to sit still and there’s time to work. The tricky part is to find the right balance between these two. Every time I write a blog post about grace, I feel I’ve left out that we are also called to do something. And every time I blog about…

How Can I Fit God in My Life?

How Can I Fit God in My Life?

Are you so busy that you don’t have time to fit God in your life? We tend to get so crazy-buzy sometimes that it feels that we barely have time to breath. It might feel an added burden to find time for God. But guess what? There’s no way you can ever fit God in your life. God is way too big for that. God can never fit in your life. If we want to experience God, we need to…
