Have you ever had confidence in someone to later find out that you could not depend on that person after all? No doubt, most of us have experienced that disappointment before. Then it is time to put your confidence in God. For sure, I know from my own experiences that I will never have to worry about that with God. You see, my confidence in God is solid. Because the Lord Jesus Christ is the only one who honors His word. 

1 John 5:14-15 New King James Version says, 

“14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” 

Moreover, He has made it very clear that He will always be there.

The Person and Work of CHRIST – S4 Ep8 

The person of Jesus Christ of Nazareth 

The Person and Work of CHRIST — well that has been the topic of many debates. Such as, who He is and His purpose for coming into the world. First, let’s look at an example from the Holy Bible of who people said Jesus was when He was here in His physical body.  

In Matthew 16:13-17 English Standard Version it says, 

“13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 

15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 

17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.” 

As we can see, people had different answers. And the same is true even today.

So, before we go any further, take a moment to look back over your life. Mainly, think about the mistakes you made, whether intentional or unintentional. No doubt, some mistakes were small, whereas others were doozies. But God had grace for it all. Moreover, His grace is available even now. 

2 Corinthians 12:9 English Standard Version says, 

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

The Invitation – S4 Ep6 

To begin with, I have a question for you to ponder. When was the last time you turned down an invitation? No matter what it was — you chose not to attend or accept it. I’m pretty sure, the answer to that question is a resounding yes. And how do I know that to be true? Because I have done so myself. Now, the invitation I’m talking about — if accepted, guarantees eternal life. 

You are invited 

It is possible, that you have never thought about where you will spend eternity. Or you don’t believe in life after death. Well, I must ask you this question if you are of the latter group. Are you willing to gamble with your eternity? Either way, if you are still reading this blog post, don’t let this moment pass you by. If you are willing to accept it — Jesus of Nazareth has extended the invitation for eternal life to you.

From Weeping to JOY – S4 Ep4 

In general, most people understand that life consists of ebbs and flows. We all have or will experience ups and downs, easy times as well as tough times. Sadly, for some individuals, the hard times overwhelm and overtake them. In other words, they only see suicide as the solution to their troubles. But oh, my friends, there is a better way — trusting God. In my experience, trusting Him took me from weeping to joy.

Of course, I must show you what the Holy Bible says about the matter in the following scripture. Proverbs 3:5-6 English Standard Version says, “5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Letting Go – S4 Ep2

In general, most people would agree that it is good to take an inventory of one’s life. Why? Because it is during that time one reflects on who or what they need to purge from their lives. For the most part, that means breaking the chains that have been holding you back from living your best life. How? By letting go.

Thus, I liken it to a spring cleaning of sorts. Of course, no one likes spring cleaning, but it is always necessary. Provided that, it is during that time that we often come across things that we should and need to be letting go of.
