How to Live to God

How to Live to God

As I was reading Paul’s letter to the Romans today, I started wondering what it means to live to God as Jesus did. And how to do it. Because that’s what Christian living is supposed to be, right? The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. (Romans 6:10-11, NIV, emphasis added). Within an hour I laid…

Let Jesus Speak within You

Let Jesus Speak within You

My heart aches for religious people who know of Jesus but don’t truly know him. Religion doesn’t save us, only Jesus does. We are not called to rule-keeping, we are called to live by faith. For that we need Jesus. And he brings life upon life. So let Jesus speak within you. Let Jesus speak life into you. The sheep that are My own hear My voice and listen to Me; I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them…

Build Each Other Up in Faith

Build Each Other Up in Faith

There is so much negativity going around that it’s tempting to just give up. But that is not a solution. Instead, we are called to go against the grain and build each other up in faith. This seems to be a novel concept these days. But what if we build our lives on faith and extended love even to our enemies? Our world would become a better place for sure. And then we would not even be tempted to give…

The Holy Spirit Backed Influence

The Holy Spirit Backed Influence

The Cambridge Dictionary defines influence as “the power to have an effect on people or things”. We’d like to think we do not have any influence not so ever to be free to do whatever we like. But, no, that’s not how it works. We influence and we are influenced by people we meet and by things we read and watch. So what to do? We need to choose what kind of person we want to become and what kind…

Only God Can Satisfy Your Heart

Only God Can Satisfy Your Heart

Have you had enough of shallow experiences, ready to look for something deeper, more substantial? Do you have a deep yearning for God? Good for you. It is a universal experience of emptiness that often drives people finally to God. Nothing but God satisfies our hearts but he truly does. Only Jesus can fill our emptiness but he does it beautifully. First, he cleanses our inner being from webs of harmful substitutes and then he fills us with his peace…

Graciously Imperfect

Graciously Imperfect

Completing something feels great, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, we don’t get to feel that too often. Life is full of incomplete things and unfinished business. And, what is the most annoying thing, we aren’t finished products either. If we don’t want to always be unsatisfied at some level, we need to learn to embrace our imperfectness. Because as long as we pretend we are already perfect and complete, we are not learning and growing. Instead, we are merely existing. But when…

Too often we think it is our job to renew our mind. We put it on our to-do list and forget it under the pressures of everyday life.

If you’re with me, let’s find out how you can let yourself be renewed. Instead, let the Spirit renew…
