Get Focussed Part 1

Let’s explore what it means to be a disciple and how strong disciples build a strong church. In this post, we will focus on who we are following, and next post, we will delve into what we are focused on. Our theme scripture for these two posts is 1 Peter 2:21, which reminds us that Christ left us an example to follow. Discipleship is not about comfort; it involves stepping out of our comfort zones, just as Jesus did. Jesus…

You Are At War!

In a recent message, we delved into the profound theme of spiritual warfare, focusing on the unseen battles that rage around us and within us. We began by acknowledging the aggressive atmosphere of the world today, where ideologies clash and everyone seems to be asserting their version of truth. This external chaos mirrors our internal battles daily, where doubts and decisions vie for our attention. We explored the scriptural foundation in 2 Corinthians 4:18, which instructs us not to focus…

Flat Tires

I was on a mission this morning, eagerly preparing for a ministry event, when suddenly, a nail in my tire disrupted my plans. It was not something I caused or could have prevented. At that moment, my Monday went from passion to deflation. There is so much happening in our world and circumstances that deflate our spirits, especially when things seem to go against our mission or passion. It can be disheartening when external factors hinder our progress. Prices are…

Embracing the Light of Renewal

Embracing the Light of Renewal: The Transformative Power of Easter As dawn breaks and the world shifts from darkness to light, it’s a powerful reminder of the innate desire for renewal and refreshment within us all. This longing is not merely an emotional response but a spiritual recognition of the need for Christ’s transformative power in our lives. The message of Ephesians chapter 1 resonates deeply, speaking of hearts flooded with light, a light that dispels darkness and instills hope…

The Wellspring Within

The Wellspring Within – Cultivating a Heart That Reflects the Divine At the core of our existence lies the heart, a wellspring of life from which our actions, character, and essence emanate. This central hub of our being requires our vigilant protection, for it is the birthplace of all that we do and all that we are. The heart’s condition is the compass that guides our journey, steering us toward either the light of truth or the shadows of deceit.…

Relationships Matter

We had just arrived in California after a crazy first few months in the US. We were about to celebrate our first Christmas in our new home country. We were freaking out to say the least… everything was new and different and we were a very long way from our family and our long standing and deeply entrenched Christmas traditions. We had no decorations, and a strange sense of Christmas being incomplete. Two days before Christmas, there was a knock…

Christ is real – God is in me!

Living Out Faith: Practically Embodying God’s Presence In the Christian faith, acknowledging Jesus as the Son of God is not merely a declaration but a transformative commitment that shapes every facet of a believer’s life.  1 John 4:15 emphasizes that by acknowledging Jesus, God resides in us, and we in God. So, how does one practically live out and demonstrate this profound transformative truth? Embracing Christ’s Teachings: Living out the acknowledgment of Jesus involves more than just affirming His identity…
