Christ: The Gate to a More Abundant Life

What does it mean to have life to the full or have life more abundantly? Does it mean having more money, power, and pleasure? Or does it mean having the freedom to do whatever pleases us? Jesus told the Pharisees: “9 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come … 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

The Heavens Declare The Glory Of God And So Must We

Psalm 19 considers the glory of God in creation, and moves to reflect on the character and use of “the law of the LORD”. A comparison is made between the law and the sun, which lends a degree of unity to the psalm. C. S. Lewis suggested that in verse 7, the Psalmist starts talking … Continue reading

Seeing Sin From God’s Perspective

There are many lights in which we can see sin, and our perception of sin very much depends upon the light in which we look at it. Sin is very terrible by the blaze of Sinai, when the mountain of Law and terrors is altogether on a smoke. It is a dreadful thing to look … Continue reading

Christ The True Vine

Christmas is just round the corner. All major shopping malls are decorated with Christmas trees, mistletoes, reindeers and Santa Claus; the sound systems are filled with Christmas carols, but something seems amiss. Ha! The secular world has successfully removed Christ from Christmas. “Christ” has been replaced with “X” on most secular or commercial decorations, and … Continue reading

The Invisible Hand of God

Several Scriptures describe the hand of God moving and guiding people (1 Samuel 5:11; 2 Chronicles 30:12; Job 19:21; 27:11; Ecclesiastes 2:24; 9:1). These passages do not mean that God literally has a hand that is visible to everyone. The Bible declares that God is spirit (John 4:24), that He does not, in His essence, … Continue reading

Show Me Your Ways, O LORD; Teach Me Your Paths

How often do we assume that ours is the right way, and others are wrong? How can we be so sure that there can only be one path and not many paths to the same end? How can the Holy Spirit transform us if we do not have a teachable heart? How can the Lord … Continue reading

The Power of Humble, Persistent and Spontaneous Prayers

There are many ways to ask for a favour from friends, colleagues, neighbours, strangers, etc. We can demand for it with a firm voice. We can ask for it using our normal voice. Or we can appeal for it using a friendly tone of voice. How should we ask God for a favour? What should … Continue reading

Prayer Connects Us with God Our Father

You don’t have to be a customer relationship manager or marketing executive to understand the importance of communication in building good relationships. So how do we communicate with God? How do we build strong, positive relationships with Him? Jesus said: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and … Continue reading

Do We Allow Christ To Work Through Us And For Us?

Are we living meaningful and fulfilled lives? Do we feel a sense of emptiness and longing in our hearts? Do we allow Christ to dwell in us and work through us? Jesus told his disciples: “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will … Continue reading
