Strong in Spirit

Strong in Spirit

Are you strong in spirit? Would you like to be? And what does it mean to be strong in spirit anyway? Let’s find out. John the Baptist – whose birth many churches are celebrating this weekend – is a wonderful example of a person who was strong in spirit. I’m sure we can take some pointers from him. John grew up and became strong in spirit. (Luke 1:80, NLT,*) I think John the Baptist was totally focused and dedicated to his…

Live in Jesus’ Name

Live in Jesus’ Name

I often say “let’s start with prayer because it’s the best way to start anything”. I do mean it and I do practice it. Why you ask. Because prayers in Jesus’ name are powerful. So start always with prayer, especially if you are a recent graduate or otherwise starting a new phase in your life. And continue to live in Jesus’ name. Whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of…

What to Offer to God

What to Offer to God

Do you ever think that you don’t have much to offer to God? So why bother at all, right? Don’t buy that, my friend. God is not looking for offerings like myrrh or frankincense or anything else you don’t have. He just wants your heart. And not to rip it from you. But to fill it with his love and grace. Then you can offer thanks and praise and share with others what you’ve received. And, sure, if you happen…

Wait in Peace

Wait in Peace

Waiting for a dream come true is very hard. Especially without trying to manipulate the outcome. We would like to force God’s hand to bless us and bless us now. But that’s not how blessings work. That might even be a recipe for a disaster. How then could we wait in peace? John Ortberg has said, “What God does in us while we wait is as important as what we are waiting for”. If we truly understand this, we might…

Fulfilling Love

Fulfilling Love

It’s that time of the year when love is in the air. And that’s all good. But there’s a danger in believing romantic love will make your life fulfilling. We should never put that kind of demand on anybody. Because they can’t deliver. Only God can. And that’s why only divine love is truly fulfilling love. God’s love is special, he loves us at our worst. God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners,…

The Beauty of Surrender

The Beauty of Surrender

Isn’t it interesting how everything in Christian life starts with surrender? The word and the thing we all hate until we learn the beauty of it. Let me explain. The beauty of surrender is real. It leads us from dark disasters into light and love. Sure, we are saved by grace but it doesn’t happen without surrendering our hearts to Jesus. Also, all the growth in grace and wisdom happens through surrender. The Christian life is all about surrender. God…

My Light and My Power

My Light and My Power

It’s really inspiring to hear how my texts and teachings have touched hearts (thank you for all your feedback). However, I have to admit that I feel immense emptiness and powerlessness as I get back to teaching, especially after a break. I was sharing this with God this morning and I understood that especially as empty and inadequate I was exactly the right kind of sharer of the Good News. Because it’s not about my message but about God’s Word….

Controlling Chaos by Surrendering Control to God

Controlling Chaos by Surrendering Control to God

When we have a thousand things to do, probably the last thing we think we should do is to sit still. But I’d say that’s exactly what needs to happen when our lives become chaotic. The only way for me to control chaos is to surrender control to my creator. When I sit still before the Lord I am reminded of what is essential in life and what isn’t. I am also reminded of the power I depend on. It’s…

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…
