Heart of Thanksgiving

Psalm 103:1-2  Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits.   Do you know the secret to success? Success isn’t measured by the amount of accumulated wealth. Some of the wealthiest people in the world live in depression and loneliness. […]

The Blessing of Open Heavens

Romans 5:8  But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.   God loves you!! He’s not an angry God who is waiting at the corner of every bad turn to punish you. The Holy Bible says, “The LORD is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding […]

A “Lot” of Baggage

Matthew 22:39  And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’   When the Lord called Abraham to follow Him, He commanded him to do just one thing – to get away from his old life completely. He said, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.” – Genesis […]

The Crown of Life

Matthew 22:37-38  Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment.”   The Olympic year is here!

The Law of Love

Romans 13:8  Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law.   The Pharisees strongly disliked the Lord Jesus. His teachings on love and mercy did not sit well with them. How could He change people’s ideology and cause the Pharisees to lose face? Who was He […]

Greater Victories in 2020

Psalm 118:14  The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.   Judah was surrounded by three nations that plotted its destruction. King Jehoshaphat knew that no military strategy would be good enough to defend his nation. Only God could save them! While all of Judah was fasting and praying for a miracle, the […]

God of Love

Romans 12:10  Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honour giving preference to one another.   The Lord Jesus was often tested by experts of the law. It is quite amazing that He almost always answered their question with another question! And so it was when this expert in the law asked […]

Our Heavenly Father

Psalm 122:1  I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.” Are you glad like David to worship in church on a Sunday? David was a true worshipper! He spent most of his waking hours in the presence of God. It was his inspiration and desire to worship […]

Open the Door!

Jeremiah 1:19  They will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you. For I am with you,” says the Lord, “to deliver you.” The resurrection of the Lord Jesus was by far the most potent catalyst of socio-religious change. Hundreds of thousands of people were moved by the touch of the Holy Spirit and recognized the […]

The Law of Love

Proverbs 29:18  Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; But happy is he who keeps the law. We’ve often heard that the new covenant, established by the Lord Jesus during His time on Earth, offers abounding grace. Laws are no longer relevant in this present age! But, is that true? When asked by the Pharisees about […]
