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…

Grace Is God’s Power for Us

Grace Is God’s Power for Us

Are you struggling with life? Or are you at the end of your rope? I have good news for you. First of all, you are loved. And, second of all, God wants to help you. I know, it is a bit astonishing. But God did not send Jesus to save you and then leave you to manage on your own. The Holy Spirit is here to help us out. We just need to ask for help. This is not an…

Let Yourself Be Renewed

Let Yourself Be Renewed

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. And the truth to be told, if it were up to me, my mind would never be renewed. I am not into religious performances. Rather, I crave for spiritual intimacy with our heavenly Father. If you’re with me, let’s find out how you can let yourself be renewed. Instead, let the Spirit renew…

When in Need of Restoration

When in Need of Restoration

Are you counting down days to your summer vacation? Are you tired, empty or worn out? You are not alone. It happens. But don’t be discouraged or dismayed. Help is very near. And that help is powerful yet gentle. It’s creative and redemptive. Because of Jesus, this restoration is possible. The biggest restoration happens when we come to Jesus for the first time. This is complete renewal, not just a quick-fix to conceal some faults. Jesus cleanses us from inside…

Grow Strong in Faith

Grow Strong in Faith

Sometimes we think we should have strong faith right away. And that belief might cause some to shy away from faith altogether because they think they’re not cut out for faith. But faith is a gift from God, to begin with. And very few of us start out strong in faith. We slowly grow strong in faith. It’s a process empowered by the Holy Spirit and not about our own merits. Faith is based on grace from start to finish….

The Secret of Christian Living

The Secret of Christian Living

Do you want to know the secret of Christian living? How can some people live according to the will of God? The fact is no one can live up to the high standards. But would you rather lower the expectations of Christian living than learn the secret of Christian living? I hope you choose the latter option. Because even if Christian living is impossible for us, it’s very possible for God. And he provides us everything we need for victorious Christian…

Included in Christ

Included in Christ

Are you included in Christ? If yes, you’re part of a very rich inheritance. All the riches of Christ are yours when you heard the good news of your salvation, and as a result, believed in Him. If no, know that all are included in the invitation to come to Christ. All are welcome just as they are. Christ has everything you need to be made right with God and even that is not all. He has everything to heal…

From Emptiness to Fulfillment

From Emptiness to Fulfillment

If you look for fulfillment in yourself, eventually you will be disappointed. And that’s the opposite of what the popular kids in the world tell you. Somehow we are to find ourselves by looking into our hearts. That’s not how it works in my experience. Instead, when you’re tired, all you can find in yourself is emptiness. Not happiness, not fulfillment, not purpose. But emptiness. And that’s why so many people turn into some kind of drug, whether it is…

Be Strong in Jesus and Pray Hard

Be Strong in Jesus and Pray Hard

No matter what you’re facing, be strong in Jesus and pray hard. You might ask, what does it mean to be strong in Christ? Such a good question. It means you draw strength from Jesus, not from your own resources. And as we know his resources are limitless. Hence we are both encouraged and empowered at the same time. Then we are ready to move on to praying hard. In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from…

Based on Faith

Based on Faith

Too often I meet Christians who have not embraced fully the freedom Christ offers to us. Lovely Christian people who are paralyzed by fear of possibly doing something that would keep them away from heaven. Like God’s grace would not be powerful enough to cover them if they are not perfect Christians. Why have they not been told it’s not about their religiosity? It’s about the power of God. We can’t save ourselves no matter how hard we try. Thank…
