Why Is Jesus Better than Santa?

Why Is Jesus Better than Santa?

Christmas is not a day for Santa to bring gifts to well-behaved kids. It’s a day when we celebrate the birth of Jesus. Actually, the birth of Jesus has such a huge impact on our lives that we celebrate it for 12 days. So, Happy Second Day of Christmas, all! Jesus is better than Santa in so many ways. For the starters, Christmas without Christ is just a big mess. Not something we want to celebrate for days for sure. But…

Only Three Things Left to Do

Only Three Things Left to Do

Do you wish there was more time in a day? I do. The demands of everyday life are great. Sometimes I do wonder how we all manage to get by with all the things we are asked to do. Juggling seems to be the style of living for many of us, especially during these last weeks of the year. Life is meant to be enjoyed, people cherished, and God worshiped. How can we accomplish that when we rush through things…

Are You Collecting Idols?

Are You Collecting Idols?

Summer is an awesome time for spiritual check-ups. Usually, we get some time off the grid or even time away from routines. That gives us time to see our life better than when we are barely trying to survive from day to day. Today I am trying to look at my life if there are any other gods than God Almighty. You know, it’s so easy to start collecting idols without even noticing it. How about you? Are you collecting…

Be Deep-spirited Friends

Be Deep-spirited Friends

The Christian way of doing things is the opposite of what the world things is successful. We don’t use our elbows to get ahead. And we don’t sweet talk our way to the top. Instead, we are called to love others as we love ourselves. And love does not give us permission to selfishness. Instead, it urges us to become deep-spirited friends. Wesley Hill writes “God never meant us to be purely spiritual creatures. That is why He uses material…

Dress up in Hope, Faith and Love

Dress up in Hope, Faith and Love

Are you on your way to heaven? Do you know how we are supposed to spend our time waiting for the second coming of Jesus? How should we live our lives here on earth? How about dressing up in hope, faith and love? I don’t think, friends, that I need to deal with the question of when all this is going to happen. You know as well as I that the day of the Master’s coming can’t be posted on…

Stop Passing on Judgment

Stop Passing on Judgment

Life is beautiful but it can be, at times, really hard. There are a lot of obstacles we face: sickness, poverty, emptiness, stress, all kinds of pain. Pretty much everyone is fighting tough battles. We need to live in a way that we are not adding on each other’s pain. We need to stop passing on judgment. It’s not our place and it does not help anyone. Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your…

Spiritual Wardrobe

Spiritual Wardrobe

Grace invites us to try on a new kind of wardrobe. One that God has chosen for us: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Did you just audibly sigh? Don’t worry, I know. The godly, spiritual wardrobe doesn’t quite fit! But I know a Master Taylor who can help us: The Holy Spirit. When we invite Jesus to live in our heart the Holy Spirit starts working on our new kind of wardrobe. Gently he keeps on working on us…

Bankrupt Without God

Bankrupt Without God

God is love, right? Just like the Bible tells us. But that’s not the end of the story. Actually, that opens up everything. My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love. (1 John 4:7-8 ,…

Ultimate Love

Ultimate Love

Fully grasping the depth of God’s love is most likely out of our reach. I think God’s love is so endless that we just don’t have the capacity to fully know it. Or, at least, it is a life-long process. Everything in God’s time. But even just getting a small glimpse of God’s love leaves us awestruck. God so loved the world, each and everyone of us, that he gave his only son that no one would perish. Jesus paid…
