God thinks the world of you

The army days weren’t fun, but they were good. I learned a lot about myself and about other people. And I also learned a lot about the army and how things work in the army. When you enter the army, you’re nothing. In the first six weeks of basic training, which felt like a year, […]

Jesus, still the greatest

The author of Hebrews drives the point home again and again. He wants his readers to hear the message again and again: There is no one like Jesus. He is the greatest. There is no one like Him in the whole universe. Do you see Jesus like that too? Well, after looking at all his […]

Jesus God, Creator

It is impossible for us to see God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit as one being. For me, they are three persons. God is the Father who created the world. He is the main man. Jesus, his Son, is the one who came to earth to die on the cross. By doing that, He paid […]

All his doing

I pity the people who lived on earth before Jesus came. They did not actually have a chance of going to heaven. If they sinned, they had to take the punishment. I suspect I would have missed out on heaven too. But thank goodness God came with a supernatural, incomprehensible rescue effort. I will never […]

God – our windbreak

It’s good to check on your foundations now and then. We so easily get pulled into the world and then we forget our roots. We forget who we are and sometimes act differently, almost as if we are someone else. But before we know it, we feel empty and shuffle around aimlessly in the world. […]

Your calling …

Paul couldn’t fit all that he wanted to say to Timothy into one letter. But before Paul starts with his second letter, he reminds Timothy of who exactly he is. In this one verse he says quite a lot. He is an apostle of Jesus God wanted it to be so They sent him To […]

A life built on trust

I see I’ve made a mistake. I’ve neglected to refer to the first phrase of verse 17 in the previous piece. It’s the answer to everything. 17Tell them to go after God, who piles on all the riches we could ever manage—to do good, to be rich in helping others, to be extravagantly generous. Immediately, […]
