Live to Preserve Life (Part 1)

captureThis may sound redundant but life is full of surprises, some are good, some bad, but nevertheless, we can never truly prepare for what life can throw at us. To make matters worse, often at times, the “why” of the trials we face are out of reach. This complete lack of control can leave us feeling unsettled and even fearful. But if there’s anyone in history who had a life full of curve-balls, yet managed to remain hopeful, it’s Joseph. When you read the story of Joseph, in hind sight, he was truly a man favored of the Lord. Yes, in hind sight you can see how everything that happened to him was a part of God’s meticulous plan. But its easy to be on the outside looking in, so as we follow the timeline of Joseph’s life, Continue reading

Join me in this series as we dive into the book of John, and see the character of God revealed! Today we digest John chapter 8.

Romans 8: 10-11 This part of the chapter involves a woman who was caught in adultery and going to be stoned by the hands of her accusers. Jesus describes the guilt she currently faced as “condemnation”. As her accusers discussed her guilt, they were essentially throwing condemnation at her. So when Jesus said to the woman, you are no longer condemned (because He Himself did not condemn her), He was also saying “you are no longer guilty.” If condemnation and guilt go hand in hand, then Continue reading

John 6- God of Provision

When Jesus feeds the thousands with just one boy’s lunch, He shows us that when we trust Him and commit to Him (in faith) the little that we have, He is faithful and able to multiply it a thousand fold. Just like He did with Continue reading

John 3:36 Where God Abides

The word says that he who believes in the Son, has everlasting life. He who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him. This verse shows that the wrath of God abides ON those who do not believe. This is in contrast to Continue reading

John 2: 1-12 Water Turned to Wine

This chapter is quite significant, as it is where we witness Christ’s first miracle! Yes Jesus turns water into wine. He not only does the impossible, but His impossible tastes good. It tastes better than the best man-made wine (John 2:10). Continue reading

Confidence Like God

tumblr_mrj5rej8be1rckdh5o2_500How confident would you say you are about the things that you stand for. Are you for or against various liberal or conservative movements? Or even on a more personal scale: Are you for or against living by the moment versus careful treading, city life versus suburbs, restaurants versus home cooked meals, kids versus no kids? We are humans, we are different in many ways but one thing we most certainly share is that we have values, beliefs, dislikes and likes. We all have different things we stand for. But the question I want to ask is how confident are you in your stance for or against those things. If everyone in the world were to call you crazy for taking that stance how confident are you that you would not waver, not even a single bit? Well, as a Christian the one thing we must stand for (as it is the basis of our faith) is the GOSPEL! But the question is do we have confidence like Jesus did to stand despite the resistance we face from the world? Continue reading
