The Purpose of Living

The Purpose of Living

How are you living your life? Are you aware of your overall purpose here on earth? At least, I hope you know you are not an accident. There is a reason why you were born. God created you and has called you to live at this exact time in history. Sadly, too many people live their lives these days like their sole purpose in life would be to entertain themselves. But entertainment is not the purpose of living. It’s far…

Saved to Serve

Saved to Serve

Very often we think salvation is the end result. That once we are saved, all is done. But, actually, salvation is the start of a fruitful life. We are called to love and serve God. We are most satisfied and blessed by doing so. But when we live far from God, we don’t have the desire to serve anybody else but ourselves. That’s why, when we are not right with God, we are unable to serve. Thankfully that changes in God’s…

The Father of Mercies and the God of All Comfort

The Father of Mercies and the God of All Comfort

Our heavenly father is the father of mercies and the God of all comfort, says the Bible. How wonderful is that? Especially, when we are feeling helpless and clueless. Despite everything, we are okay. Just because our God is the father of mercies and the God of all comfort. We are not alone and we are not despised. We are loved and cherished no matter what.  Blessed [gratefully praised and adored] be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus…

Live In Partnership with God

Live In Partnership with God

Did you know that you have a place in God’s plans? Yes, God is calling you to enter deeper into his grace. God is calling you into a full partnership with him. How do I know this? The Bible tells me so. God is calling every follower of Christ – not just pastors – to make disciples and serve the body of Christ. What could it mean to you to live and work in partnership with God? Malcolm Smith has…

Alive and Active

Alive and Active

I have two Eugene Peterson quotes to challenge you today if you’re getting too comfortable in your life. Sure, Jesus came to comfort the afflicted. But he also came to afflict the comfortable. God wants you to be alive and active. So here we go with the words of Eugene Peterson: What a waste it would be to take these short, precious, eternity-charged years that we are given and squander them in cocktail chatter when we can be, like Jeremiah,…

Being a Part of God’s Team

Being a Part of God’s Team

Are you on God’s team? Good for you. How does that affect your everyday life? How’s teamwork part of your life? Are you pulling for the team God? Are you doing your part as a team member? I hope so. You can easily enough see how this kind of thing works by looking no further than your own body. Your body has many parts—limbs, organs, cells—but no matter how many parts you can name, you’re still one body. It’s exactly…

Back to Basics

Back to Basics

Once in awhile it is wise to get back to basics, to remind ourselves what faith is all about. If our foundation of faith is not build on the rock, nothing really clicks. We need to get back to basics and get our foundation right. Then we can move on and build upon the solid foundation. God sacrificed Jesus on the altar of the world to clear that world of sin. Having faith in him sets us in the clear….

Nothing Left for You to Worry About

Nothing Left for You to Worry About

There is one verse in the Bible that erases worries powerfully. It is not probably what you think. But it is powerful nonetheless. It reminds us who is in control and whose we are. And if we do remember that, there’s no reason to worry, right? Your eyes saw my unformed body;     all the days ordained for me were written in your book     before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:16, NIV, emphasis added) The whole psalm139 is a…

Blaming God ?

Blaming God ?

Are you blaming God for your difficulties? Or are you angry at God for letting you suffer? I have news for you. It’s natural but not Biblical to think life, even for a follower of Christ, should be smooth sailing. The Bible does not promise life without difficulties or give an exempt for suffering. Actually, we are promised quite the opposite. I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have[perfect] peace. In the world you have…

Wholeness Is Possible

Wholeness Is Possible

Lately, I have been contemplating on wholeness. It seems to be the goal for every person on earth. According to Victor Frankl meaninglessness in our lives is a hole, an emptiness, in our lives. Whenever there is a vacuum we rush to fill it with things. We keep on trying one thing after another – shopping, money, work, sex, drugs, entertainment, relationships, hobbies – but nothing fills the hole. But God. Look at that man, bloated by self-importance—    full of…
