He is Touched by Your Faith!

While people were crowding and pressing against Him, Jesus stopped and asked the question, “Who touched me?” (Luke 8:45). Then Peter jumped in with his two cents, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you” (v.45). But Jesus wasn’t referring to just any touch, so He explained, “Someone touched me; I know that powerContinue reading “He is Touched by Your Faith!”

Resurrection Moment

The devil thought he had won. Jesus was as good as dead, or so he thought. Then something happened that even the devil didn’t see coming – Jesus came back to life…stronger. There comes a time when this resurrection moment becomes a part of the Christian’s life. You experience a death of sorts and theContinue reading “Resurrection Moment”

Resurrected and Restored

My Bible reading plan, which I’ve been following for many years now, took me back to the story of the Shunammite woman whose son Elisha brought back to life. But this time around, God revealed something new to me. I found it interesting that her resurrection story moved the king who heard it so muchContinue reading “Resurrected and Restored”

You’re Better Off With Him

But she said, “Don’t call me Naomi; call me Bitter. The Strong One has dealt me a bitter blow. I left here full of life, and God has brought me back with nothing but the clothes on my back. Why would you call me Naomi? God certainly doesn’t. The Strong One ruined me.” (Ruth 1:20-21Continue reading “You’re Better Off With Him”

Nothing Will Do

So Abraham said, “If they won’t pay attention to Moses and the prophets, they won’t listen even to someone who comes back from the dead.” (Luke 16:31 CEV) I once thought that knowledgeable preachers were capable of convincing many people to follow Christ, but as they themselves testify, that isn’t always the case. In LukeContinue reading “Nothing Will Do”

My Type of Music

And the God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. (Romans 16:20 AMPC) I love to sing about God’s love and goodness in my life, but for a long time, spiritual warfare has been my type of music. You know, songs about warfare and victory which talk about God’s power and Satan’s finalContinue reading “My Type of Music”

Rising with the Son

We are more than conquerors through [Christ] who loved us. (Romans 8:37 NIV) It’s been nine years since I launched a personal blog on Facebook. At first, “Rising with the Son” sounded like a catchy title for a Christian book I intended to publish. I still remember brainstorming a bunch of titles with my friendContinue reading “Rising with the Son”

Come Ahead

But Jesus was quick to comfort them. “Courage, it’s me. Don’t be afraid.” Peter, suddenly bold, said, “Master, if it’s really you, call me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come ahead.” (Matthew 14:27-30 MSG) After feeding the large crowd, Jesus sends His disciples away in the boat and goes up toContinue reading “Come Ahead”

The One and Only

Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth. (Psalm 73:25 NLT) This wasn’t Asaph’s initial reaction. Earlier in the psalm, he had envied the prosperity of the wicked–their health, wealth, success and trouble-free life. Sadly, during his difficult times, the psalmist allowed his eyes to shift to theContinue reading “The One and Only”
