Out of the Miry Clay into Glory through Faith

Psalm 40 : 4—”Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” David in all his problems waited patiently; he continued to believe, hope, and pray. Another example we see in the Bible is Christ — Jesus Christ’s agony, in the garden and […]

Humility and wisdom through the Holy Spirit

Psalm 1:2—”Considering how safe, and quiet, and easy the humble are, we see that with the lowly is wisdom.” Whatever God has given us, what we haven’t worked for to achieve, these things are called talents, blessings from God because of His grace released toward us. Let’s look at some examples: a good looking person […]

Kindness and the Holy Spirit

Titus 3:1-2—”Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.” Divorce, love affairs by married people, drug or alcohol use, and so on. Are these a list of things we […]

Compassion and the Holy Spirit

Ephesians 4:32 — “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” How many times have we come out of church soaked to our soul, in the fullness of God’s grace and with the comfort that we only get in the presence of God, only to be […]

Are you ready to believe?

Matthew 13:58:  And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief. Faith is the prerequisite for a blessing or a miracle.  Jesus did not do many mighty works in His place because the people didn’t trust Him.  They didn’t accept His divinity or lordship. Jesus is the Lord of our life.  If […]

Take up your cross

Matthew 10:38:  And he that taketh not his cross and followeth after me is not worthy of me. All of us have crosses to carry or bear in life.  Jesus never promised that our life will be smooth until the time that He returns.  He said that in the world we will have many many […]

Pray everyday

Matthew 14:23:  And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray; and when the evening was come, he was there alone. Jesus prayed to God, His Father.  He has set an example to us that it is essential to pray and/or talk to God.  He sent the […]

Doubts out, Jesus in

Matthew 9:25:  But when the people were put forth, he went in and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. People were put OUT and Jesus went IN.  The maid arose.  These three things happened at the house of Jairus. Jesus went to heal the daughter of Jairus, but she was already dead. […]

Do not be afraid

Matthew 14:27:  But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. The disciples were pretty shaken up when they saw Jesus walking on the water towards them.  They assumed it was some kind of a ghost.  They had least expected Jesus to come up to them at […]
