Facing the Truth

Facing the Truth

Facing the truth is sometimes very hard. Accepting the blame is not fun or easy. But it is necessary in order to live authentically. How about you? Do you accept the reality of your sinfulness? Sure, it’s one of the hardest things to do. But it is also one of the things that bless us the most. Because when we come to terms with our sinfulness, we are ready to receive the only effective remedy for sin known to humankind:…

Don’t Be Deceived

Don’t Be Deceived

Do you think you are a good enough person without any need for a Savior? That’s what the world keeps telling you. Don’t buy it. The Bible tells us differently. First of all: you surely are precious. But, second of all, you also are a sinner just like the rest of us. You do need a Savior. Don’t be deceived. I have a message from God in my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of…

Grateful for Grace

Grateful for Grace

The longer I live, the more grateful I am for grace. Because the older I am, the better I know myself. And that picture is not pretty. I am hopeless at making myself better.

So we would have a way back to him. Because we could never make it on our own. Why is then that we’d like to fake…

Never Take Christ for Granted!

Never Take Christ for Granted!

One of the dangers of any relationship is taking the other person for granted. Then we fail to appreciate the value of the person. Then we assume certain amenities for granted. It is bad enough when we do that with our friends of family. But sadly we also do this with Christ and the amazing grace. Lord, have mercy. Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace…

Leviticus & Why God Does Not Fit in a Box

Leviticus & Why God Does Not Fit in a Box

I’ve always wondered why it is a human tendency to try to fit God in a box. What purpose would a-god-small-enough-to-fit-in-a-box serve? Why on earth would we like to want to tame God? I guess, we would like to use God for our own purposes. We would like to say how things should be run in our own lives. We would like to be God. That’s our human sinful nature right there. Our God is wild and holy. There is…
