The Kingdom of God

May 30, 2022

  Jesus taught that the kingdom of God is “already among you”(Luke 17:21 NLT), and “within you“(Luke 17:21 KJV). On Pentecost He filled the disciples with the Holy Spirit so that whatever they said could be understood by everyone around them regardless of the language they spoke(Acts 2: 1-12). WE are called to love God […]

The Two Realms We Live IN

Sep 16, 2019

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is unseen is eternal” 2 Cor 4:18       We are caught between two realms, the world/ the culture we live in, and God’s kingdom. Until the day we die, as long as we live in this […]

The Christ Child is Born!

Dec 24, 2018

And here we are, on the eve of Christ’s birth in this world, of his coming again to us, of his gifts of peace, joy, love and patience, of love and forgiveness. Tonight we will celebrate His birth in the manger, welcoming the new baby into this world. And we will welcome Him into our […]

Walking In His Presence

Oct 10, 2018

“Hush, hush, somebody’s calling my name                                      Sounds like Jesus. Somebody’s calling my name.”   Walking step by step in Jesus’ presence through this precious Advent time, may we behold the Christ Child as He steps into our lives, into our minds, into our hearts and bodies. For there is nowhere that Christ isn’t. But […]

Appreciation and Love

Jul 23, 2018

“I love everyone, but I don’t have to like them,” I overheard these words of a fellow member of a church I belonged to a few years ago. I was shocked! How can we love someone without liking them? We use the word love so much, and liking, too, that I think we skip over […]

Blessed Are The Peacemakers…

Jul 02, 2018

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.”  If Jesus is known as the Prince of Peace [foretold in Isaiah 9:6], then to follow Him means we are at peace with all that He was and taught, that we are at peace with ourselves and with everyone else. There are […]

In This World, But Not of This World

Apr 16, 2018

[based on Romans 12:2] To live in the world and not be of the world is not something we can claim because we believe in Jesus Christ. It is a step-by-step dismantling of the world’s influence in our lives. It is taking the bias of the world out of our own thinking. It is giving […]

We Are All Made in God’s Image

Apr 09, 2018

“So God created mankind in his own image…male and female he created them.“ [Genesis 1:27] And by extension so are each of us created in His image. But what does that mean? I believe that it means that there is something in us that reflects God, but that it remains a potential quality within us, […]

Que Sera, Sera…

Mar 26, 2018

”Whatever will be will be! The future’s not ours to see. Que sera, sera. What will be, will be. Que sera, sera.” Many of my readers may be too young to remember this song sung by Doris Day in the 1956 film, The Man Who Knew Too Much. It came to my mind not long […]

“Adoption is God’s Heart”

Mar 19, 2018

When Jesus talks about serving food and drink/helping/visiting the poor, the sick and the prisoner, he is not just talking about a charitable act. It’s not just about the food or drink that we serve, it’s not just about the visit, it’s more about adopting this person and that one into our family, into the […]
