Peace Be with You

Peace Be with You

This week I have been touched by these words of Jesus: “Peace be with you”. This is how he greeted his disciples after his resurrection (John 20:19-). He knew they needed relief from fear as they were taking in his resurrection and all the changes therefore happening. Jesus also knew they needed new courage to face future challenges and eternal hope to carry them through some difficult times ahead. All this was inclosed in the word of peace. Jesus always…

The Bookends for Any Blessed Day

The Bookends for Any Blessed Day

For quite some time now I have started my day by surrendering myself, my life, and that particular day to Jesus. It has blessed me and taught me how to walk with God throughout the day. But something was still missing. God showed me I needed another habit to the end of the day. And that’s how I learned the bookends for any blessed day. What’s the other bookend then, you ask. It’s as simple as the one in the…

Perfect Peace Is for Those Who Abide in Jesus

Perfect Peace Is for Those Who Abide in Jesus

Inner peace is something we all want. Yet it seems to be the one thing that escapes us. The culture around us is an enemy of inner peace. How then can we have it? Perfect peace is for those who abide in Jesus. You see, peace is a person, Jesus Christ. So peace does not come by performance but by surrender to God. When we abide in Jesus, we have perfect peace. “You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is…

The Spirit of Peace

The Spirit of Peace

How are you? I hope you’re doing well or, at least, you’re experiencing God’s peace. You know, it’s possible to experience peace even in the midst of the ugliest strifes. I know it’s hard to believe but once you’ve experienced God’s peace in the midst of chaos you know what I mean. God’s peace is ours if we want it. Because it’s not dependent on our outer circumstances. The Spirit of Peace is ours to be received no matter what….

Stripped-Down Christmas

Stripped-Down Christmas

What an odd year it has been. A lot of loneliness, confusion, and frustration along the way. And now we are doomed to have a stripped-down Christmas. But hey, Christmas itself has not been canceled. The reason for the season will always be there even though the familiar traditions or gatherings are canceled or stripped down. And in some odd way, a stripped-down Christmas forces us to see what’s really essential about Christmas. We all have our favorite Christmas traditions…

Jesus Gives You Inner Peace

Jesus Gives You Inner Peace

Lately, inner peace seems to be it. Famous people tell here and there how they’re seeking and planning on achieving inner peace. But, my friend, do you know you what? You can’t earn or achieve inner peace. You receive it as a gift from Jesus. Yes. Jesus gives you inner peace. By grace. Christianity doesn’t appear very trendy and some people don’t like that God gives so many good things free. Achieving something appears so much more noble and sophisticated….

Godly wisdom

Godly wisdom

Lately, certain Bible verses have become my prayers. Somehow each of these verses encapsulates so well what my heart has been trying to pray for. Thankfully, God hears even our groans. But it is a blessing to find words for the desires of our hearts. So this week I’ve been praying for godly wisdom with the words of James: But the wisdom from above is first pure [morally and spiritually undefiled], then peace-loving [courteous, considerate], gentle, reasonable [and willing to…

Fearless Living

Fearless Living

The fear of COVID-19 has made many people rethink their views on eternity and many are earnestly seeking spiritual well-being. They want boldness to live (and die) but they don’t know it does not come separate from grace and peace. Wanting boldness without faith is like putting the cart before the horse. Grace, peace, boldness belong together. Because together they equal fearless living. Positive thinking does not kick the fear of dying out of the picture but God’s grace does….

Fretting Less by Trusting God More

Fretting Less by Trusting God More

As the Coronavirus is spreading like crazy, many are getting anxious. I think it is wise to wash your hands and do everything you can to prevent the disease as much as possible. But our life or death are not in our own hands. Hence it’s time to start fretting less by trusting God more. Let the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling…

God’s Protection

God’s Protection

As the Coronavirus spreads fear around the world, it’s time to remind ourselves of a few facts. No, I’m not telling you to wash your hands and such. I’m urging you to reminds yourself of some spiritual facts about God’s protection and reasons to be fearless in this seemingly fearful season. Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,    my God, in whom I trust.”3Surely…
