When I was an intern at a local church, I was asked by a five-year-old kid (who happens to be the pastor’s daughter)…

Where is God?

I answered, “God is in our hearts, if He is our Lord and Savior.

If God is so big”, she said in response, “how can He fit in our heart?

I think I had a hard time answering that question. Sometimes, a kid could ask the hardest questions. We will be talking about God’s omnipresence and answer the question “Where is God?” (more…)

When it comes to the deity of Jesus, a lot of our students get the question on how do we prove that Jesus is human and at the same time, how on earth can He be God. So we come to a discussion in our small group on who Christ is.

I mentioned “The Trinity” in one preaching and I couldn’t get over it. I mean, how many chances do we have on speaking about the topic? (more…)

I was listening to a song by Nick Jonas, the line goes…

We can be listening to the song and it speaks volume when it comes to relationships. The lover can be possessive. In this case, we call it as it is…jealous. (more…)

Ever heard someone say “I love you” but still flirt around others? Ever received promises then only to find out that the person who promised you something didn’t really mean what they said?

Not that thought provoking. We know a lot of stories of heartbreaks and pain. Yet, we are just like that with God.

We claim to be Christians but we don’t really mean what we say. We promise God everything but give Him nothing.

To walk in God’s truth means TO DO what He says.

What is God’s truth? Why do we believe God? (more…)

When we disobey, we sin and we suffer the consequences. In the case of Moses (Numbers 20), the instruction of God to him was pretty simple: take the staff and speak to the rock to yield water. Let’s examine what Moses did and the consequence of his sin.

Change is something that is constant. Innovation is the action or process of innovating (make changes in something established, especially by introducing new methods, ideas, or products).  Looking at the life of David, we may be able to see practical ways of adapting to change through innovation and leadership. There are three things we should consider when we talk about innovation.

January 24. This is a moment I would forever remember. This was the day I co-officiated the wedding of a close friend and what was in my mind was the question, “why get married?” As a single person, I would be excited for my friends who tie the knot but at the same time, I watch and learn from others. Here are the reasons of why we should get married. This is actually the outline I used for the wedding. 🙂

The Apostle Peter, the disciple of Jesus, wrote to the believers in a time of great persecution. This was the time when Nero burned Rome and focused the blame on the Christians. The letter was written around 64 – 65 AD probably in Rome. The purpose of the letter was to teach believers how to live victoriously in spite of the hostile environment that they are in. In fact, the theme of the letter is how to live an obedient and victorious life under persecution.

James. Summarized.

If you read the book of Proverbs, chances are you would feel comfortable with reading the book of James. It felt similar to the book of Proverbs as it talks about godly behavior rather than simply theoretical knowledge. The author wanted his readers to be uncompromisingly obedient to the Word of God. Going through the book, one would see the idea of works and godly behavior.
