Look to the Bible

When you are looking for an explanation as to the purpose of your life, look no further than the Bible. There you will learn about your Creator, and discover his great love for you. There you will find a solid rock upon which to build your life; a foundation that does not shift or change with time, government, employment, or other people’s whims. When you look at the world and wonder how the universe came into existence turn to the Continue reading Look to the Bible

Silence

Silence … the hushed anticipation, the breath that is held as the hockey puck slides towards the net. Silence … When the music suddenly stops, when the podcaster is silent mid-sentence … what is your first thought? When God is silent, when the heavens are like brass and your prayers seem unanswered, what goes through your mind? Does your blood pressure rise and heart race? Does stress ooze through all the pores of your body? When God is silent, do Continue reading Silence

Salvation Belongs To Our God!

Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb (Rev 7:10) Everywhere we turn we see evil and power hungry people bent on conquest, leaving in their wake a trail of fighting, famine, disease and death. As Christians we may find ourselves persecuted or ridiculed for our testimony. From office politics, to interpersonal conflict, to the evening news, it seems like the forces of evil are winning. How then should we live? I would like Continue reading Salvation Belongs To Our God!

Lift Up Your Prayers

Lift up in prayer to God’s throne in heaven all that you see happening in your workplace, the good, the bad and the ugly. Allow your prayers to rise like incense before God’s throne. Your prayers rise to a special place, a place where the Creator of the universe sits on his golden throne hearing each of your prayers. Here God reigns supreme over all of history. Here God holds your future and the future of each person in his Continue reading Lift Up Your Prayers

Come Away

For one moment, I invite you to step away from a world filled with manipulation, fear, lies and platitudes. Come away with the apostle John for a glimpse into the throne room of heaven. The first thing you see is the throne of God. This is where it all began. Watch in wonder as the Sovereign God reigns over your workplace, your family situation, your plans and your future.   Focus for a moment on the 24 elders seated on Continue reading Come Away

Persevere

  Persevere with hope for the Lord is your help and shield. Trust in his holy name, and allow your heart to be filled with joy. (Ps 33:20-21)! Christ is the source of inner strength that enables you to persevere in any environment as you are transformed into Christ’s image. God’s promises are sufficient for a life of confident faith on every mountain top, in every shadowed valley, and through every parched wilderness. Jesus, the Lion of the tribe of Continue reading Persevere

Workplace Acclimatization

How would a friend describe your behavior compared to a year ago? Would they say you have become more Christ like, or would they say that the negative attitudes and behaviors of your co-workers have rubbed off on you? Being a Christian, doesn’t make us immune from becoming acclimatized to the culture of our workplace. Sometimes when we look at the behavior successful people have adopted, we tend to stifle the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit so that we Continue reading Workplace Acclimatization

Look No Further

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God (Rom 11:33a NIV) You do not need to look any further! You are known! You are loved! You are secure!   Jesus knows your name. Jesus knows where you live and work. He is fully aware of your social, economic, cultural and political situation. He knows what people are saying about you. He knows exactly how you feel about your work.   This knowledge that Jesus has about Continue reading Look No Further

What Do You Need

I was having breakfast with a friend a few weeks ago, and he asked me “what do you need?” His question caught me off guard. Living in an affluent society, with everything going well, there isn’t much that I need right now. I named a few trivial things that would make life more convenient. I am sure that if health, or finances, or shelter or relationships were a burning issue, I would have said that I needed those issues resolved. Continue reading What Do You Need

Grace and Peace To You

Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come (Rev 1:4) When the apostle John, was exiled to the Island of Patmos because of the word of God, God did not offer him platitudes, or explanations. God reveals himself to John in all his glory. God desired that John’s mind would be saturated with thoughts of God, not dwelling on his circumstances. God wanted John to be blown away by his concept Continue reading Grace and Peace To You
