Faith without Fear

The disciples’ fear, when in the midst of the storm, was greater than their level of faith. As a consequence, they couldn’t exercise their faith.

استسلام

أول يوم لي كأم – كان يومًا تخيلته مليئًا بالورود والمشاعر المتدفقة. بدلًا من ذلك، وجدت نفسي استمع لاعتراف سيؤدي إلى انهاء زيجتي. مصدومة وحزينة، لم أكن في حالة تمكنني من العناية بابنتي الرضيعة في أول 24 ساعة. كان أصدقائي الأعزاء لطفاء ليعتنوا بها في هذه الليلة.  عندما عدت لأخذها في اليوم التالي، جلست على… Read More ›

The One who is coming back   

When others went home, Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. It was quiet there. The land He loved stretched out like a brown blanket tucked around Jerusalem’s walls. For all it meant, it could have been Jesus’ favorite place on earth. Perhaps that’s why He took His disciples here to say goodbye. The Eleven… Read More ›

Overcoming Obstacles

When thinking about big obstacles, I’m reminded of when God instructed Israel to enter the Promised Land. Right before they went in, God told them to choose twelve spies to go in and scope out the land. 

Reunion: The One who made breakfast  

Our long look at Jesus’ life through the eyes of those He touched is coming to an end. It’s a story to keep reading for a lifetime—especially the Gospel of John. The disciple John wrote his gospel nearly 60 years after the events, so “that you may believe Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God,… Read More ›

Thomas & the One who proves Himself

Christians rarely set out to doubt God. For most of us, life simply catches us off guard. Hardship trips us up. When we take our questions to God we grow our faith, but we spiral fast when we go solo with our grief. 

Fear, Worry and Insecurity.

We serve a God Who will never allow something major in our lives that can’t help us. He won’t allow any tragedy into our lives that can’t be used for our benefit. He can take something that is terrible and work it out to where it is a blessing in the long run. We often cannot see that in the short-term, but it is a truth that we find in Scripture. 

Life: The One who beat death    

Three continents meet here. Three faiths claim their beginnings here through father Abraham. Ancient and recent skirmishes scar the landscape. The Bible’s entire story revolves around this land, and especially Jerusalem. History began and will be completed here. Yet one event in April two thousand years ago overshadows all others. That was the weekend Jesus… Read More ›

Making Your Choice

“After winter comes the summer. After night comes the dawn. And after every storm, there come clear, open skies.” – Samuel Rutherford

Centurion & the One who shook the earth    

but I tell you, it was terrifying. Eerie. Was this the end of the world? A chilly wind blew through the darkness the exact moment the rabbi died. That was no coincidence. He was no peasant king. This was a righteous man. They were messing with another world when they killed him. They put God’s Son to death. 

Lullaby & the One who keeps your soul safe   

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep . . . Moms and dads in every generation have prayed with their little ones before bedtime, assuring them that while they slept, they were safe in their heavenly Father’s care. 

Forgiveness: The One who bought the gift   

The first thing Jesus prayed from the cross described in a nutshell why He hung there in the first place. “Father forgive them . . . “—forgive those who tortured and took His life. Forgive those who live apart from You, who miss the mark in any way . . . 

Abandoned

Do you ever feel abandoned? Do you ever feel like no one is sticking with you? Well, you are wrong, because you have not been abandoned, as seen in today’s verse.

God by our side

18th century writer Samuel Johnson said: “People need reminders more often than instructions.” Learning new things keeps us in shape and helps us get better. But there is so much that we have already studied, but do not apply or do not remember. One of the things we need to keep in mind is how close God is to us. Here are some hopeful truths to learn:

Trusting in Him

When it comes to the things that God has in store, I think that Christians only take possession of 10%. Sometimes we might think that God wants us to be rich. Do not assume that God’s blessings are going to be financial blessings.

Unknown treasures

Many Christians live their lives like this. They live like beggars and paupers when they are an heir of the God Who owns the cattle on a thousand hills. They don’t, however, need to live like this because they have the Lord on their side.

Insecurity in you ‘self.’

Following God’s instructions, Moses sent twelve spies to scope out the Promised Land. In our Scripture today, we read the report that the spies brought back to Joshua and the people of Israel. Verse 27 gives an amazing report of a land flowing with milk and honey. If the report had ended there, it would… Read More ›

LOST SOULS

We look for escapes from the absolutes. We deceive ourselves into denying that our existence is more than the reality we live in.

Trust the Lord and Face your Fear

Are you struggling with a decision to do right? Maybe you know God is calling you to do something for Him. Look back on His faithfulness in your life and know that you can trust Him with your future.

Facing Our Fears

When thinking about big obstacles, I’m reminded of when God instructed Israel to enter the Promised Land. Right before they went in, God told them to choose twelve spies to go in and scope out the land. 

Fear, Worry and Insecurity

We serve a God Who will never allow something major in our lives that can’t help us. He won’t allow any tragedy into our lives that can’t be used for our benefit. He can take something that is terrible and work it out to where it is a blessing in the long run. We often… Read More ›

His crown of thorns to a crown of majesty

“After winter comes the summer. After night comes the dawn. And after every storm, there come clear, open skies.” – Samuel Rutherford The truth behind Samuel Rutherford’s statement is what led Jesus to see beyond His crown of thorns to a crown of majesty; beyond the nails in His hands and feet to an exalted… Read More ›

A HOPE ANCHORED FIRMLY IN FACTS

Though the genuine hope of the Christian stirs up the strongest of emotions, do not make the grave mistake of thinking that the Christian’s hope is founded on emotion. Nothing could be further from the truth.

You Can Know The Truth!

Life is about finding meaning and direction. Seeking these would require us to seek what is true. The world is inundated with lies and misdirections. Start seeking through the only source whose absolutes are Truth.

5 Biblical Reasons God allows Suffering

We all face suffering in some way, shape or form. In our pain, we long to know why God allows grief and hardship into our lives. It’s common to wonder if our suffering is God’s Will. People often hold only one view of suffering; however, the Bible does not have one approach to suffering but many.

Isaiah 54:10

Isaiah 54:10 reminds us that no matter how bad things seem to be, the Lord is with us. From our first day to our last day, we are never alone. Even when the world seems to be falling apart around us, God loves us.

One who washed the traitor’s feet  

He’s the most notorious villain in the story. The one who pretended to believe, pretended to follow, but in the end, betrayed Jesus. He was one of the twelve chosen disciples, yet today, people don’t even name their dogs Judas. 

Experiencing the Holy Spirit.

The Apostle Peter promises to those who repent and are baptized that they will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). The Bible tells us “Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

TRUST IN HIS PRESENCE

Always remember that you are bigger than any concern you have and that God is control. One of the best ways to overcome the feeling of drowning is to trust in God and lean on His Word. Immerse yourself in it.

TRUST IN HIS WORD.

If you really want to hear God and begin to trust His Will for our lives, we must get involved with Scripture and hear what God’s Word is telling us.

TRUST – HOW DO I?

Fear feels uncomfortable, but in most cases, it won’t really harm you – but attempting to avoid your anxiety will because you are robbing yourself of the chance to experience the deep satisfaction which comes with listening to your heart and soul and creating a better life fill of passion and purpose.

Voice of God

While we can’t physically hear God, it’s important that we remain confident that God hears us and confident in God’s promises offered through Scripture

TRUST IN GOD’S PLAN

Many Christians profess to trust God’s Will for their lives but when it comes down to letting go and letting God, they can’t.

The One who prays for you    

If you really want to know someone, listen to them pray. You find out quickly God cares less about your eloquent words or your posture or even perfect doctrine. God listens for your heart. 

HOLINESS IN THE MORAL ABSOLUTES.

The significance of the Cross can only be exemplified by understanding the Old
Testament. It reveals how humanity since creation has floundered and stumbled, incapable of seeing the Truth, revealed through God’s covenants and spiritual presence. Eden; God physical presence, through his covenant with Noah, Abraham, Isaac, through the Arc of the Covenant, His temple, his voice through the prophets, judges and kings. God has revealed his unending grace, love, patience and compassion.

The One who will come for His bride

He stands and raises a cup of wine like a toast. “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.” Wait, the disciples thought, this doesn’t sound like the Seders. This is a marriage proposal!

Passover Lamb: The One who was provided for you  

Thursday evening, late.  Wine blushed in their cups as they ate the special Passover meal, their last dinner together. Jesus longed to share it with them, He said.  His arms outstretched, the cup lifted up.  “I make a new covenant with you in my blood poured out for you.”  Blood poured out to get to… Read More ›

Day After…..Easter

Each year we proclaim the joyous celebration of the resurrection. One day out of a whole year we flamboyantly sing and praise the realization that Jesus has risen.

 It is Finished 

The Easter Story comes to a close in this victorious scene in Matthew 28. Can you put yourself in Mary Magdalene’s shoes right before she hears the angel’s voice? In your mind, you know Jesus is dead, but your heart is holding out for the faintest of hopes that He still lives.

Life worth Living.

Finding meaning in our journey through life, calls for our need to establish a foundation that provides meaning and a framework that equal and fair to all.

O Christ, what burdens bowed Thy head!

O Christ, what burdens bowed Thy head!Our load was laid on Thee;Thou stoodest in the sinner’s stead,Didst bear all ill for me.A victim led; Thy blood was shed;Now there’s no load for me. Death and the curse were in our cup,O Christ, ’twas full for Thee!But Thou hast drained the last dark drop—’Tis empty now… Read More ›

Moral Apologetics and Easter

If the resurrection didn’t happen, and happen literally, then Christianity is false; and anyone and everyone is perfectly within their prerogative to heap scorn on Christianity to their heart’s content.

Circumcision of the Heart : Romans 2:29

When we take into context the world as Paul saw it, was filled with unrighteousness, fornication, covetousness, full of envy and murder, haters of God, proud, boasters, without natural affection.

The First Easter

To understand the significance of the meal Jesus shared with His disciples the night before His arrest and His ultimate sacrifice, we need to travel back to the Old Testament, to another spring night centuries earlier.

Watch “Self Righteous” on YouTube

Atheist seem to live within a realm that defies the existence of others. Dictating self righteous pious condemnation against any sense of reference apart from their own.It is a world view that is incoherent and obscure and only exist within those whose own depraved existence is only for self and nothing more.Ironically, the loudest noise… Read More ›

What is Buddha’s realization?

We cannot claim truth when we cannot support it by a set of criterion. The last avenue of truth is from humanity themselves. We must seek a source far greater if we believe in a creator. Maybe the truth is in the Creator himself.

Who are You?

In the 1970s classic Kung Fu movie Enter the Dragon, Bruce Lee receives a challenge to a series of fights. During one challenge, Lee’s opponent tries to intimidate him by breaking a board. Lee calmly replies, “Boards don’t hit back.”

A Question of Allegiance: Part Two

One good way to discover an idol hidden in the corner of your heart is to observe where your thoughts go by default…when you are driving in the car, standing in the shower, brushing your teeth, getting dressed, or waiting in the checkout or carpool line.

A Question of Allegiance: Part One

Kevin DeYoung, a modern day theologians, frames the question of our ultimate allegiance(s) in terms of the first commandment versus idolatry. Here is a quote from his blog: “What must we leave behind if we are to follow Christ? The simplest answer is that we must leave behind idolatry.

The Struggle

Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness. We learn from Luke 4:2 that “… he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, he was hungry.” What an understatement! Forty days without food is right on the edge of human tolerance. Jesus wasn’t just hungry; He was literally starving to death.

BEHOLD THE MAN SERIES: TRUTH

What is Truth? This is the question that has plagued humanity since our very existence. We seem disoriented and lost as we struggle through life, seeking answers to our purpose and meaning to life. Is this all there is to life? We look at the world around us, and we fall within its subjective standards… Read More ›

Thirsty for Living Water

Many people are led to know Christ through the influence of another. In fact, it’s the effect of life upon life, the impact of one personality upon another, but our faith must stand on surer ground than another person.

Pray Continuously

We often neglect our prayer life and in the process fail to access the incredible power of prayer. James says our prayers have “great power”.

Knowing

 James 4:13-17 (ESV) Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring.  What is your life?  For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you… Read More ›

Judging others

Having said that, it does not mean I can compromise on the Truth. However, our loving of each other, is a key distinctive of disciples of Jesus. Jesus said: “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:35)

Humility

Humility is often an elusive quality. At its core, pride is an inaccurate and inflated view of myself

In the Beginning   

The Gospel of John is one of the easiest books to read, yet one of the most profound Gospels to understand. We might get the surface meaning easily enough, but to understand the deep truths, we need the Lord Jesus to be our teacher. 

The Wilderness

Through our Pains and Sufferings, the Lord reveals Himself only when we submit to Him with all.oir heart
