Receive by Praying in Faith

Receive by Praying in Faith

Faith seems to be a big word but it is actually now. We practice faith daily in varying degrees and we just do not think much about it. Exercising faith is a daily part of our lives. We sit on a chair every day; and we are comfortable to sit because we have the faith that our chair is strong […]

Acceptable and Pleasing to God

Acceptable and Pleasing to God

At the end of our lives what will matter the most is not how popular we are or how much money we made or how successful we are or even how liked we were. We will all stand before the Lord, and it will be his judgment alone that will matter. Like King David, he was concerned that the “words […]

Be Blessed and be Right with the Lord

Be Blessed and be Right with the Lord

Everyone desires to be blessed. Blessings are good, but our heart must be right with the Lord. Blessings can either humble us and draw us closer to God, or allow us to become full of pride and self-sufficiency. Every blessing comes from the Lord. Let us not forget that. Matthew 6:11 says “Give us this day our daily bread.”

Worldly?

Worldly?

The dictionary defines worldly as -of, relating to, or devoted to this world and its pursuits rather than to religion or spiritual affairs. What matters most in your life? Does Jesus occupy 1st place in your heart? “What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man […]

Your Most Valuable Treasure

Your Most Valuable Treasure

What is that thing that you value the most? Matthew 6:21 says wherever your treasure is (that which you value the most) your heart is there also.

Do Not Harden Your Heart

Do Not Harden Your Heart

The Bible says that when we hear God’s call in our life, don’t harden your heart. He loves you unconditionally and without reservation. His free gift to all is eternal life.

Grace – getting a gift you don’t deserve

Grace – getting a gift you don’t deserve

Grace means you get something that you do not deserve. The grace of God is the best thing that has ever happened to us all who are willing to receive it freely.

Setting Goals

Setting Goals

I encourage you to set your goal. The book of Proverbs 24:3-4 says “By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.”

His Love is Amazing

His Love is Amazing

We we try to comprehend that all our sins have been washed clean once for all times, that’s love. When God continues to remain faithful in our lives even when we are faithless, that’s love. When He tries to get our attention because He wants to lead us in the right path yet we refuse to listen, He is not […]

Don’t Lose Focus

Don’t Lose Focus

The disciples had been with Jesus when he fed the 5,000. They themselves collected twelve baskets full of left overs. They witnessed the multiplication of five loaves and two fish. What an amazing miracle. Then shortly after they went on a boat-ride to the other side of the lake and suddenly a storm arose and everyone was scared. They forgot […]

One thing in Mind

One thing in Mind

Many times we get discouraged when we’re unable to accomplish everything we had planned to do in a day. Perhaps, that’s our problem. We set out to do so many things. Jesus had this in mind when he came and walked on the earth for 33.5 years. He came to love us and to wash our sins with His blood. […]

What is your fragrance like?

What is your fragrance like?

When talking to someone and he or she gives off a soothing fragrance, our tendency is that we want to linger and stay a little longer. We would want to continue the conversation as oppose to talking to someone who discharges a bad odor. In this case, we would want to disappear as fast as we could out of their presence. […]

Are you thankful?

Are you thankful?

Sometimes we tend to take things for granted. We enjoy the things we have and fail to realize that everything we have and own – all come from God. It is when we forget that important fact that the sense of entitlement sets in. The Bible reminds us that we are to be grateful. We live each day giving thanks […]

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 This is the season that I reflect on guidelines for giving thanks, and reflecting on past commentaries.  I confess that in the past far too often I have dwelt on the sin of ingratitude, pointing out […]
