Who do you say Jesus is?


Who do you say Jesus is?
It is important that Christians know who Jesus is. It’s not enough or acceptable for us to learn to walk in His footsteps. We must try to establish a personal relationship with Him. Because only then we’ll get to know Him and the power of His might.

The disciples were His brethren for a long time; they saw the miracles. But when Jesus challenged the group to see if it knew who He was, everybody failed except Peter.

The Bible says Jesus went to the territory near the town of Caesarea Philippi. While there, He asked his disciples. “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
“Some say John the Baptist,” they answered. “Others say, Elijah, while others say Jeremiah or some other prophet.”
“What about you?” He asked them. “Who do you think I am?”
Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

That exchange tells me that up to that moment, those men were still skeptical about Jesus. They were just going through the motion for the benefits.

What benefits? You might ask. There are a lot of advantages to gain from embracing Christ. Politicians do it to attract a certain voting block. Business people do it to enhance their status.

But embracing Jesus for vain reasons is a recipe for disaster. It’s like building a house on sand. When the wind of tribulation blows, we need a good solid foundation to withstand the test of time. That’s why it is so important that we seek to know the Lord better. And strengthen our relationship with Him.

Christian Hypocrisy – Are You in Danger?


Christian hypocrisy is widespread in the church with the negative result of alienating unbelievers. Learn to avoid the sin of being a religious phoney.

Do you lack humility?


As Christians, we never talked about humility. Perhaps, because it’s not cool, or maybe because the world sees humility as a sign of weakness. Everybody wants the next person to see him or her as having a strong or exaggerated sense of power. Anything less is unacceptable to the world.

But Christians cannot live their lives according to the world’s standard. Of course, we are not going to ignore its laws, but our morals and principles should be God-centered. Frankly, Jesus demands Humility from His followers. It is an essential characteristic of the authentic Christian.jesusfeeds5000story[1]

So, one day, while hanging out with friends, Jesus’ disciples came to Him, and asked: ““Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become like little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven, (Matthew 18:1-4).

No one can enter the kingdom of heaven without having and displaying humility here on earth. So, if you lack humility, start practicing. There is no place for the proud in heaven. James 4:6 says: “The Lord opposes the proud and gives mercy to the humble.”

Jesus is calling–Amy Grant


 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

Luke 9:23 King James Version (KJV)

It’s a wonderful life.


It’s a wonderful life
Christians are not immune from ills and perils. We are human beings. Pain and suffering, disappointment and setbacks are all part of life’s journey. But, despite our troubles, the Christian life is wonderful.

What makes the Christian life wonderful?
I cannot quite put into words why the Christian life is wonderful. Neither can a professional basketball player explains how he made fifteen three-pointers in a row in one and in another game he made zero; nor can a professional golfer explains how he made a hole-in-one. But there is something about living a Christian life that makes one feel wonderful.

Naturally, naysayers, like atheists, will say you are crazy. And every time a tragedy happens they put you on the spot and ask you questions they know you will never answer to their satisfaction. Questions like, Where was God when this or that happened?. Why did he allow so and so to happen? And instead of saying I do not know, some Christians pretend to know the mind of God and conjure up answers that do not make practical sense.

But, I do not know the mind of God. And I cannot explain why bad things happen to good people, but I know without a doubt the Christian life is overwhelmingly wonderful. And to experience it you must be born again.

New day, New beginning


Happy New Year everybody!

024“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was at the beginning with God. All things have been made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:1-5).
