Let the Bible Wow You

Let the Bible Wow You

Last week I read an online article about how we should not do things we love every day. Like if you love ice cream, you should not eat it every day if you don’t want it to become just an emotionless habit. But there’s one exception to this rule, I think. The rule does not apply to Bible-reading. Because ….the more we read the Bible, the more we desire to read it. The more we digest the Word of God,…

Wisdom for Christian Living

Wisdom for Christian Living

How do you obtain wisdom for Christian living? Do you bank on your own reason or do you somehow rely on God? I think we all would like to think we are trusting God and not ourselves, right? But are you really seeking God’s wisdom? Or do you end up accidentally relying on your own reasoning day after day? Too often what really happens is far from the ideal. We intend to pray but we forget. We want to read…

The Word of God as a Guide

The Word of God as a Guide

The Bible is a huge gift for us. It proclaims the good news of Jesus Christ, of course. But it also equips saints and advices disciples. It keeps us focused on God and when our life focus is God, our life is balanced and blessed. Reading the Bible is so essential to a life of a believer that we really can’t live without it. Or at least stay spiritually alive without it. Today I want to share the beauty of…

The Mirror of God

The Mirror of God

God’s word is a mirror. We just need to dare to look at it. What do I mean? We could take, for example, any story Jesus told to his disciples. If we dare to ask the Holy Spirit to read our heart and show us what we need to know, God’s word will be a mirror for us. The picture that we see in our hearts is God’s message for us. Keep this in mind when you read the parable…

Got Jesus?

Got Jesus?

We need to eat to live, grow, and get stronger. For this very same reason we also need Jesus. If we want to live, we need Jesus. If we want to grow, we need Jesus. If we want to get stronger, we need Jesus. Jesus told them, “I assure you, it wasn’t Moses who gave the bread from heaven to you, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.The bread of God is the one who comes down…

Why Do Christians Need the Whole Bible

Why Do Christians Need the Whole Bible

Sometimes you hear people saying that Christians only need the New Testament. What do you think? Do we need the whole Bible? I just finished listening to the Old testament as part of my Lenten journey of reading through the whole Bible. And I am more convinced than ever that we need the Old testament to explain the New Testament. You know, sending Jesus was not a spur of the moment idea. God had planned it all along. God had…

How Can I Find My Own Star?

How Can I Find My Own Star?

Have you ever envied the wise men? I have. Sometimes discerning God’s will is not that easy. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a huge sign on the sky declaring heavenly guidance “This Way!”  Having your own star would be helpful, don’t you think? Then the star appeared again, the same star they had seen in the eastern skies. It led them on until it hovered over the place of the child. They could hardly contain themselves: They were in…

God, Where Did I Go Wrong?

God, Where Did I Go Wrong?

Do you ever wonder how on earth you ended up messing up things once again? Especially when you thought you had asked God’s blessings on your projects? How did everything go wrong when you thought God was in your team? These questions used to haunt me, too. Until I laid them to the Lord and asked him to explain me where I had gone wrong. How could I have avoided these pitfalls? How could I have made wiser decisions? The…
