A Friend In Need Is a Friend Indeed

Is God only a fair-weather friend to us? Is He there for us in our times of need? Do we have the courage to take the leap of faith when He commands us? Let us look for our own answers as we meditate on Matthew’s gospel: “22 Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the … Continue reading

Finding Rest In Christ Jesus

How do we find rest in a troubled world? Can we find rest by our own endeavour? Can we only find rest when we have fulfilled all our dreams and aspirations? In Matthew 11:28-29, Jesus offers to give us rest and teaches us how to find it: “28 Come to Me, all you who are … Continue reading

Christian Perfection

I find Matthew 5:38-48 the most difficult part of the Sermon on the Mount to understand and obey. How can we not resist an evil person? How can we love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us? Is Jesus asking for the impossible? How can we ever be perfect? The old law directed … Continue reading

St. Paul’s Prayer To The God Of Peace

In the final chapter of his Epistle to the Hebrews, St. Paul prayed that the Hebrew Christians may be made perfect to do God’s will: “20 I pray that the God of peace, who brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, by the blood that sealed an eternal … Continue reading

Tender Mercy From On High

What does Zachariah’s joyful song (Luke 1:67-79) say about the incarnation of Christ? How can we experience the tender mercy of God? Why did Zachariah call Christ the rising Sun? How does Christ guide our feet into the way of peace? Observe how Zachariah, in his joyful song, extolled the remission of sins, as one … Continue reading

In his second Epistle, the Apostle Peter wrote: “3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. 4 For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that … Continue reading

Keeping the Unity of the Spirit

What is the unity of the Spirit? How do we keep it? Does it mean that we have to strive for uniformity in order to keep the unity of the Spirit? The Apostle Paul told the Ephesians: “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep … Continue reading

The Great Regenerator Who Makes All Things New

Who is the great Regenerator? Who can make all things new? Who can give us a new heart and a new spirit? Who can make the lion eat straw like an ox, turn swords into plowshares, and spears into pruning hooks? Through the prophet Ezekiel, the Lord GOD told the people of Israel: “I will … Continue reading

The Kingdom of God Is Given To Those Who Are Fruitful

What is the Kingdom of God? Is it a country? Is it a chosen people? Is it the Church? Can the Kingdom of God be taken away and given to other people? Are there any rites or rituals that can be performed or professions made to ensure that the Kingdom of God does not go … Continue reading

Seek First The Kingdom Of God

There are many worldviews (e.g. materialism, relativism, objectivism, secularism, social Darwinism, etc.) out there that are contrary to the Christian worldview. They might disagree on the importance of material possessions, the validity of LGBT marriages, and the right to have abortions, but I certainly hope none would favour chaos over orderliness. When we see an … Continue reading
