Little Is Much when Jesus Is in It

Little Is Much when Jesus Is in It

Sometimes we frown on our lives because they are too plain or small to our liking. Like big and bold would somehow be the only acceptable way to live. I disagree. One’s rowdiness, or even successfulness, does not necessarily produce a meaningful life. And the amount of attention you get does not tell the value of your life. Because your value comes from the Lord, not from the size of your following or popularity. The world might differ but little is…

Unsuspected Enemies of Growing in Faith

Unsuspected Enemies of Growing in Faith

Do you want to grow in your faith? I think that is what we all want. But we might not want what it takes to make it happen. We’d like to get the benefits of a mature faith but we’re not willing to sacrifice for it. Or we’re not ready to wait for years while obediently keeping on doing what’s required.

Yet, too often we overlook something when we plan out our lives. There is a way to live a life greater than you. It might not…

Give God Your All

Give God Your All

  It’s true that you should give God your best. You should not reserve the best for yourself but give it to God. The Bible does not urge you to give the leftovers to God for sure. Quite the opposite in fact. You are to love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength (Mark 12:30, NIV). That means you are not to give God just the best…

The whole Bible have promises upon promises to God’s children. Are they all meant for me too? Oh yes. Even the ones in the old testament. This is because of Jesus. All comes together in Jesus. All the promises of God become “yes” in Christ Jesus. How wonderful is that? Jesus came into the world so everyone who believes in him could have eternal life. Jesus is for all, may all be for Jesus. For no matter how many promises…

Why I Sing Hosanna

Why I Sing Hosanna

God is always with us. What a wonderful fact, don’t you think? No matter how badly we screw up, God is right there helping us, encouraging us, guiding us. Also, God is with us when the world fails us, Jesus carries us when our own feet can’t do it. He carried even our failings, our weaknesses to the cross. That’s why I sing Hosanna. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;     it was our sorrows that weighed him down. (Isaiah 53:4,…
