The Cross of Christ Renews Us

The Cross of Christ Renews Us

Why did Jesus voluntarily take up the Cross and die? We need to carefully examine this question. Christ who was sinless had to die to deliver us from sin and grant us salvation and glory. Why is deliverance from sin important? Because it is directly related to human life. Romans 6:23 says “For the wages of sin is death” and Jesus Christ in John 8:24 says, “I told you that you would die in your...

Jesus is the Living Water for Souls

Water is the source of life. There are many reasons why we should not see water as mere liquid. For one thing, water circulates in the body to maintain blood pressure and other essential physical functions such as transportation of nutrients to cells and excretion of waste and toxins. In addition, water helps regulate the body temperature, delivers oxygen to the lungs, impedes the skin’s aging...

Sing to the LORD

Sing to the LORD

Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Do you praise God joyfully? Praise is not a secular song or a song composed in honor of an influential figure.

Verse 1 from today’s reading says “Let us sing for joy...

Blessing our persecutors and enemies instead of cursing them.

Blessing our persecutors and enemies instead of cursing them.

We are called to bless, not curse, our persecutors. Verse 14 from today’s reading says, “Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.” Cursing is not just uttering invectives outwardly. It is also wishing ill wills and misfortunes against others inwardly. Within every verbal curse is the heart of hate and vengeance. Cursing against others eventually brings curse upon ourselves. It is...

The etymology of the word wisdom is the Old High German word weistun meaning “judicial sentence serving as a precedent.” People who lack wisdom cannot set a precedent or an example. Such a lack of wisdom, unfortunately, is found in many Christians as well. They fail to set an example with their faith,...

Ministry is Service

Ministry is Service

Who sets up order and ministries within church? None other than the Holy Spirit. “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood” (Acts 20:28). Since the Early Church, there have been overseers and deacons who served the body of Christ (1Timothy 3). The role of the overseer is to...
