My Ten Favorite Martin Luther Quotes

Martin Luther was born on the 10th of November 1483 and to celebrate his birthday I share with you ten profound quotes of his. They are still relevant over 500 years later. How come? Because only eternal things have lasting value. Luther preached Christ crucified (1 Cor. 1:23). He reminded us of what is essential: we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. He pointed us to the cross. He encouraged us to focus on Christ.  He encouraged…

The Power of Worship

Do you know what to do when your inner accuser blames you for this or that? Do you know how to show the door to the devil? Do you know how to deal with doubts or inconveniences? Just worship. For real. The power of worship is beyond this world. For real. What a stack of blessing you have piled up     for those who worship you, Ready and waiting for all who run to you     to escape an unkind world. (Psalm…

Dealing with the Inner Rebel

Dealing with the Inner Rebel

Every time I come across this quote by Jim Elliott I cringe. Does this convict you too? “Unwillingness to accept God’s ‘way of escape’ from temptation frightens me what a rebel yet resides within.” When we pray that God would help us….that God would rescue us from our temptations…..and then do exactly the opposite even when God is providing a way of escape….that is rebellion against God. The God-rebel tunes in to sedition—     all ears, eager to sin. He has…

How to Live by Faith?

How to Live by Faith?

One of the most exciting things in a life of a Christian is to search for God’s guidance. Sometimes it can also be very frustrating. Human beings can make plans but God will decide whether and when something will happen. Like Thomas à Kempis (c.1380-1471) has said “For man proposes, but God disposes; neither is the way of man in his own hands.” But because we desire God’s will and guidance for ourselves, we would not want it any other…

Do You Know How Much God Loves You?

Over and over again. And God’s yes is not valid just when you are doing well. God loves all of you. The bad and the ugly. The good and the beautiful. Everything. God speaks yes to you in Jesus. Whatever God has promised…

Weekend Prayer Wall {Oct. 27-28}

Weekend Prayer Wall {Oct. 27-28}

To say prayers in a decent, delicate way is not heavy work. But to pray really, to pray till hell feels the ponderous stroke, to pray till the iron gates of difficulty are opened, till the mountains of obstacles are removed, till the mists are exhaled and the clouds are lifted, and the sunshine of a cloudless day brightens-this is hard work, but it is God’s work, and man’s best labor.~ E.M.

Weekend Prayer Wall {Oct. 13-14}

Weekend Prayer Wall {Oct. 13-14}

If you don’t pray often, you won’t gain a love for praying. Prayer is work, and therefore it is not very appealing to our natural sensibilities. But the simple rule for prayer is this: Begin praying and your taste for prayer will increase. The more you pray, the more you will acquire the desire for prayer, the energy for prayer, and the sense of purpose in prayer.~ Leslie Ludy The goal of prayer is to live all of my life…
