Jesus paid our sin credit debt.

Jesus paid our sin credit debt.

Let us go straight to the point. The Bible says all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Even if we only sin one time each day that amounts to 365 a year and let us say we are 20 -90 years old those are lots of sin.

But Jesus came that we may have life and have it more abundantly. He died for our sins.

Only Jesus qualified to pay for our sins. Let us repent of our sins and believe in Jesus and live for Him.

Because He lives we shall live also.

In search of healing

In search of healing

Modern life with its hurried or rushed lifestyle undoubtedly causes stress or etc. havoc in our health. Living a Christian life should help in the healing process that is if we apply Christian principles. One example is sleeping or going to sleep in clean state or just like washing the dishes( clearing our soul, mind, heart and body of sins)  before going to sleep.

In my case, I have forgotten to empty the accumulated trash in my life, like worries, unforgiveness, envy, pride, greed, self -centeredness, unbelief, doubts, lust. Sometimes they come in little forms but they are there nevertheless.

Do you know that even engines have to get rid of its exhaust in order to keep running ?

How do we as Christians empty ourselves of our trash ? By confessing our sins and forgiving others who have sinned against us. God knows us more than we know ourselves. Let us ask God to show us what is bad for us and to cleanse us  of our unrighteousness. And to reveal to us what is good for us.

Understanding Jesus in modern life

Understanding Jesus in modern life

In modern life we use electricity and with that we have electrical appliances that need to be protected from overloads in voltage and current. Without protection like surge protection our appliances could be damaged with that poses danger to life and properties.

In spiritual life,the Bible declares that the soul that sins shall die. Because of the fall of man, man sins and is therefore sentenced to die. Jesus died for us that we may live.  Jesus acts like a surge protector or sin protector.

Without Jesus we are unprotected like an appliances without surge protector. Actually modern life has many protective devices which remind us of Jesus.

But having Jesus is not automatic, we have to repent of our sins and trust or believe in Jesus and abide in Him. Jesus  said without Him we can do nothing. He is the way , the truth and the life, no one can come to the Father except through Him.

Waiting on Jesus

Waiting on Jesus

Waiting is a major part of our life. What are we waiting for ? graduation, promotion, retirement, reunion, loved ones working abroad,anything ? Long time ago a prophet named Isaiah wrote which is preserved in the Bible a verse Isaiah 40:31.

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.

I believe it , do you ?

Still looking for the lost sheep of Jesus

Still looking for the lost sheep of Jesus

One of the names of our Lord Jesus is Good Shepherd. His followers are called disciples, often called Christians. Another term is sheep.  Jesus came to seek and save the lost.

Our Lord knows where His sheep are but He commissioned His followers to look for the sheep. When He comes back He will separate the goats from the sheep.

His sheep knows His voice. Do you hear His voice calling you ?

Leaving not losing your first love

Leaving not losing your first love

For Christians our first love i believe is Jesus. Could we lose Him ? In Revelation 2:4 the word used is leaving. The verse says nevertheless I have something against you, because you have left your first love.

Comment: Have we left Jesus for something else ?

Revelation 2:5 says remember therefore from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto you quickly, and remove your candlestick (lampstand/light) out of its place, except you repent.

If we have left our first love, then Jesus is calling us to return to Him.

Remembering Jesus

Remembering Jesus

We have different ways of remembering Jesus but  there are times our minds wander. We could be occupied thinking of something else.

When you do not feel like doing your usual ways try watching DVD of the life of Jesus.If you do not have DVD i believe you will find something to remember Jesus.

What should be Christian messages today ?

What should be Christian messages today ?

Our Lord Jesus said by these will all men will know you are my disciples by your love for one another. Perhaps before i write or comment anything else that every Christian ask the Lord if we are showing the love that our Lord is talking about.

The Bible, the guitar and you and me

The Bible, the guitar and you and me

Perhaps you are wondering about the title and i wonder too. If you have time let me share to you this short blog. When i was 24 years old i have not read the Bible and i decided to read it. A year ago at 66 years old i started to learn the guitar.In less than a year i finished the Bible but i did not understand it so i read it again. In almost a year i am still learning the basics of guitar.

Your interest or choice could be on whether to read the Bible or something else.

Because this is short blog, i will tell you my conclusion. It is more rewarding to read the Bible before other things. If we could read the Bible for 10 to 20 minutes or more a day, we could finish it in no time and be rewarded by God. You will learn more if you pray first.

Reading the Bible will lead us to Jesus and to eternal life.In eternal life we will live with God.

Jesus is our blessed hope

Jesus is our blessed hope

In today's world we heard there are some fake news, but do we  know that the Bible warns about some fake Jesus. Actually the Bible or from the New Testament or Gospels that Jesus warned that there will be false Christs,. False is the same as fake.

How do we know the true Christ from the false Christ ? Read the Bible. When i started reading the Bible in 1976 (43 years ago), some people warned me that people can go crazy reading the Bible. Now 2019 and even with surgery on the brain on my pituitary gland in 2007 i believe i still have sound mind at 66 years old.

Have you studied for yourself the truth about Jesus, who He is ? what are His words ? is He human or God or both ?

I hope you have the true Jesus , because without Him we do not have hope.
