Shall We Dance?

Having Jesus in my life is like dancing with delight in the rain of redemption.

A fascinating feeling. An endless elation.

Dancing with my Savior.

Try it, you’ll love it! 

 

“Taste and see that the Lord is good.
    Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him!”  

— Psalm 34:8 NLT

No God? Know God!

“The fact of God is necessary for the fact of man. Think God away and man has no ground of existence.” 

― A.W. Tozer

Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” 

— Psalm 14:1 (NLT)

 

Deep within our hearts lie a longing that only God can fill.

Do not ignore Him. Pursue Him!

When you’re questioning God

In a world of liars, cheats, deceivers, and con artists, isn’t it a relief to know there is SOMEONE you can trust?”  – Charles Swindoll

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and He will show you the right way.” – Proverbs 3: 5-6

Unquestioning the Lord fuels hope to your soul.

they sit down to be comforted in Psalms.”

Born for YOU

“If we live, It’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord.

So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord.” 

— Romans 14:8 (NLT)

“There is only one happiness: to please Him. 

Only one sorrow, to be displeasing to Him.”

—Thomas Merton

Life is all about Him. Nothing more, nothing less, and nothing else.

Sin: A Christian Perspective

Jesus, overhearing, shot back, “Who needs a doctor: the healthy or the sick? I’m here inviting the sin-sick, not the spiritually-fit.” – Mark 2:17

Sin is not the difference between Christians and those who are not; it is in fact the sameness between us. The commonality that binds us is our immorality towards God.

The difference is in the degree of perceiving it. For the closer you approach the Holy God the more you realize the degree of your unacceptability to Him. The closer you walk towards Him, the greater he reveals your greed, lust, malice, and self-adoration in your life.

Thus, when one realizes his inability to save himself, the need for a savior arises, and only when that need arises can we start being sanctified. And we are being sanctified we realize that sins is a struggle that is dealt with till the last breath.

Hence, we are beings that will ever be struggling but never accepting of sin, ever struggling and ever hoping until the time we meet Christ.

Do you believe in miracles?

“Out of weakness were made strong.”

Hebrews 11:34 (KJV)

“Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger people. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then, the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle.”

– Phillips Brooks

I Need No Stage

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task,

but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”

— Helen Keller

People today aim very big with big-time evangelistic concerts and showbiz conferences.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with such events.

However, God is glorified as a simple man accepts a beggar into his home as much as a singer leads 10,000 people in worship.

Let’s not forget that simple acts of service in humility are beautiful events in themselves.

Satisfied in His Infiniteness

I realize that my soul hungers for His infiniteness, that the whole creation is of no value to my soul and His infiniteness surpasses my desires.

The idea that the mountains, the seas, the sky, and the stars are not enough to give me everlasting is as real to me as air is to a fish.

And His glory is as real to me as the rising sun, that day-by-day, through its light, I am able to see everything.

Dictator or Dad?

So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.

Romans 8:15

What we call God reveals how we think about him.

And how we think about him shapes how we relate to him.

And how we relate to him determines how we interpret his work in us and his purpose for us.

~Joshua Harris, Dug Down Deep~

Transformed Transformer

If my people, who are called by my name, 
will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven,
and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
~2 Chronicles 7:14 

When you pray, you might not see the transformation, but you will know that it’s happening


…for it starts in you.

I Don’t Want To Believe

How can anyone deny the existence of God

when denying the reality of something

is to reject its truth out of willful ignorance?

True or False?

“Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.”

2 Timothy 3:16, MSG

We’re all theologians. The question is

whether what we know about God is true.

~Joshua Harris, Dug Down Deep~

Stand Up for Truth!

“Conviction is something we believe,
not because someone is making us, not because we have to,
but because we are convinced it’s what God would have us believe.”
 
— Joshua Harris, “Dug Down Deep”

Are your beliefs rooted in eternity?

No Fear

“We fear men so much, because we fear God so little.”

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,

and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
