Live like God sees me

How would you answer this question: What did Jesus do for you on the cross on Golgotha? Most people say that He died for their sins or that He was punished for the sin they had committed. Those answers are correct, but Jesus actually achieved much more on the cross than just dying for our […]

Jesus knows

Sandra (not her real name) has been coming to me for support for some time now. Someone warned her that her husband was raping her little girl. It’s a hard battle and even she had to testify. This week I’ve been under cross-examination for two days about my actions “to steal” my child from the […]

You know the Shepherd

The author of Hebrews opens the window wide so that we can see exactly what our Jesus looks like. This first chapter is remarkable and we get to know 12 characteristics of Jesus: Son of God, Heir of All, Creator of the world, Light of the world, the image of God, Maintainer of the universe, […]

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 […]

Jesus, the greatest

I struggled for a long time to understand what the whole of verse 9 means. The first part is ok, but what does the second part mean? Let me try my own translation of the verse, maybe it will be more understandable then. You, o Jesus, have always loved what is right and you really […]

Jesus stands for what is right

I wonder how people can justify stepping on others to get ahead? I don’t understand how people can simply wipe out others. I understand it even less when children of the Lord do it, because it goes against everything that Jesus is. Those who follow Him should try and follow in his footsteps as closely […]

Who’s your King?

In the 2006 movie, “Man of the Year”, Robin Williams quotes: “Politicians are like diapers. They need to be changed regularly and for the same reason.” This is often true. Before being elected politicians promise their electorate the moon and the stars and the whole universe. Not long after being elected, the bunch of stars […]

Exceptional Jesus

When we read the Bible, we should always remember that the author wasn’t looking at us. He was writing for the people of his time. In a way, we’re spying on his work. But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from it too. Chapter one, and a big part of the next chapter, introduce Jesus […]

To personally experience Jesus

Three years ago my friend bought himself an UP! (My cousin always said it like: “UP exclamation mark”.) When I met up with him for the first time after he had bought the car, he couldn’t stop talking about it. Immediately after the  meeting, we had to go down so that he could show me […]
