Love Unites Us to Christ

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). So how does God’s love save the world? Does the love between men and God have to be mutual? Can God’s love work alone (i.e. unrequited)? … Continue reading

The True Character of Christianity

30 Jesus said, “To what can we compare the kingdom of God? With what parable shall we present it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds sown upon the earth. 32 But after it is planted, it grows to be larger than all garden plants and puts forth … Continue reading

The Spirit of Spring

Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. It is said: “Spring breathes new life into the world around us.” In a similar fashion, the Psalmist proclaims: “You send your Spirit and they are created and you renew the face of the earth” (Psalm 104:30). … Continue reading

King David’s Secret of Peace and Joy

Psalm 4 is the 4th psalm from the Book of Psalms. Its authorship is traditionally assigned to king David. The psalm’s text is a reflection of David speaking to all sinners while addressing himself to Absalom. The message in the psalm is that the victories of sinners are only temporary and meaningless, and that only … Continue reading

The Feast of Life

The Apostle Paul told the Corinthians: ”7 Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed. 8 Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but … Continue reading

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
