Living Sacrifices

While pondering over some chapters in Paul’s famous letter to the Romans, the popular chapter 12 verse 1 came to mind: “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.” Rom. 12:1 I’m sure if you are a Christian you have […]

Theology, Knowledge, and the Mind

For many years of my Christian life, I was largely captivated by gaining more knowledge from the scriptures and listening to teachings. I was an armchair theologian at best. I loved God and I loved engaging Him in my mind. I would spend hours reading over various topics and watching educational videos and sermons. I […]

The Vulnerable Christ

After a number of conversations I had on the topic of vulnerability with some saints, the Lord started opening my heart and mind to this beautiful topic. I honestly feel like what I share in this post has the potential to take myself and others into deeper relationships with the Lord and with each other. […]

All Saints Day

Over the past few years I’ve been fascinated with the idea of ‘Saints’.  In the Catholic (meaning: Universal) Church, we often hear about certain deceased believers referred to as Saint ‘So-and-so’. There is even a process and list of requirements for someone to be recognized as a Saint, referred to as canonization. Once someone achieves […]

Learning to Lose

In modern society, there is an overwhelming emphasis on winning. Whether it be from a game to an argument, winning is almost always the desired outcome of any situation. We love winning as it elicits positive emotions, feelings of accomplishment, and self worth. Experts in discussions, negotiations, and even relationships, push the objective of achieving […]

The Road Less Traveled

We are all on a journey with the Lord, individually as well as corporately with those around us. Our journeys all, in some way or another, look different. We are all in different places in our journey with Christ. Some are further along and some are just starting out, but one thing is for sure… […]

Knowing Christ Deeply

A number of years back I was talking to a random lady on the street about the Lord. I can’t remember the exact context, but I know it was some sort of evangelism myself and a few friends felt called to do at the time. I can’t remember exactly what I asked her, but it […]

Christ our Future

The Lord can speak to us in some interesting ways. Sometimes He speaks to us when we quiet ourselves and spend time with Him, and other times He speaks to us amidst the chaos. It’s often quite easy to miss His voice, especially if we aren’t actively listening, but He has a way of getting […]

Seeing Christ

A few weeks ago I went on a weekend away with my Church family to a campsite/lodging situated in the midst of a nature reserve. The plan was to set aside the Saturday where we would all go off on our own and spend time with the Lord without talking to one another until we […]

Love One Another

Recently, I came across a list of the 59 verses in scripture that have the phrase “one another” as part of the verse. What I found beautiful about these verses are that they show us how we should relate to our fellow brothers and sisters. The repeated use of the phrase “one another”, shows us […]
