Are you the one?

God, Jesus, Bible, Ministry, FaithDo you believe there’s only one to take to change the world around you or a culture? Are you the one? Or do you want to be the one? Many people want to be a Superhero or a Wonderwoman. But it doesn’t mean that other people or the world will know your name. Yet, sometimes, it takes only one person to turn around someone else’s life. If you are the one, your name may not have known by others but God. And you are that Superhero!

Timothy’s mother was that Wonderwoman. You don’t know her name. But she changed the culture of her family and still changing ours. Continue reading “Are you the one?”

Ministry 101 – Sink or swim

Faith, God, Jesus, Bible, MinistryLiving by faith is more challenging than talking about it sometimes. Faith isn’t a fuzzy feeling to live through every day. But it takes your action to jump into the things that you don’t know the outcome. It’s a “sink or swim” decision. The bible says,

14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. – James 2:14-26 NIV

The power of praise

Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord, you his servants;
    praise the name of the Lord. – Psalm 113:1 NIV

Praise, God, Jesus, Faith, BibleThe Bible commands you to praise the Lord! Do you know the power of praise? If the Word of God commands you to do so, there must be a reason for it.

Do you always feel like to praise God or worship Him? None of us do. Life is not easy, sometimes, like you want it to be. You have worries, concerns, challenges, and troubles. Even then, the Bible commands you to praise God. King David said, “ I WILL praise the Lord.” He had to decide whether he will be sorry for himself or choose to praise God during pain. How about you?

What about him?

“What about him?”

God, Jesus, Bible, Faith, LifeChildren often redirect parents or teachers’ attention to someone else when they get caught doing something that they shouldn’t be. Your sin-nature doesn’t like to carry any responsibility that you need to answer for it. It’s much easier to put it on someone else and make yourself look better. From the first man and the woman, Adam and Eve, human nature doesn’t like to take responsibility to yourself, but blame others or make them the center of the problem.

Jesus spoke strongly to his disciple, John, about this when he questioned. Continue reading “What about him?”

I believe it when I see it!

“I believe it when I see it!”

How many times many of us said that in our daily lives? Some people say, “Seeing is believing.” Thomas, one of Jesus’ disciples, was just like many of us. He spent many days following Jesus, talked with Him, ate with Him, and ministered people with Him. But that was the exact words he said.

Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”

But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” – John 20:24-25 NIV

Church, God, Jesus, Bible, Faith, UnbeliefHe said unless he can see Jesus with his eyes and touch Him with his hands, he won’t believe it. But that’s not what the bible says about faith. After he had close fellowship with Jesus, what did sweep him away to unbelief? Continue reading “I believe it when I see it!”

Ministry 101 – When the season changes

Ministry, Life, God, Jesus, Bible, FaithDo you have a favorite season? God made every season so beautiful in its own ways. Spring brings you the joy of new life and beautiful colors from nature.

Let me borrow your bread

Ministry, God, Jesus, Faith, bread, Doors, BibleHave you ever run to your neighbor to borrow an egg or other cooking ingredients that you need but forgot to buy? The store in town is far away or even closed. Your only choice is to borrow it until you have a chance to replace it. It’s neighborly care and helping manner. It is nice to have good friends or neighbors who you can knock their doors when you need something. There is a story in the bible Jesus taught about a man borrowing bread from his friend.

Ministry 101 – It’s not about you

There’s no ministry that not God-breathed. God is the one who gives you gifts and talents, and He births ministries into your life. But if you aren’t careful, sometimes ministry becomes about you. I’m not just talking about it in a prideful way. But when things in your ministry go wrong ways.  Have you ever blamed yourself about ministry isn’t going so well?
