If God is for us, who can be against us?

If God is for us, who can be against us?

If God is for us, who can be against us? It’s a question that sounds like the answer is “No one can be against us if God is for us!” At least it’s probably an answer some Christians agree with. But guess what? That’s not the right answer. Come to think of it, it’s not even the right question. Even if it is a quote from the Bible and a line from a popular Christian song.

Why is it so hard for us to not be afraid?

Why is it so hard for us to not be afraid?

So many times the Bible tells us to not be afraid. That probably means nothing to non-Christians. But for us Christians, if God keeps telling us, “don’t be afraid”, then why is it so hard for us to not be afraid?

What Christians need to learn about God from Jonah

  • by

When we left Jonah in part 2 of this series, he was just vomited onto dry land by the great fish God send to bring Jonah back to Him. It seems there’s a great lesson, pun intended, that Christians need to learn about God from Jonah. Something that kind of reminds me a bit of a scene from Star Wars. The thinking behind “Let the Wookie win” is quite different from the contest of wills between God and Jonah. And yet, the idea of “Let God win”, is just so striking.

God remembers my cancer. But do I remember God?

God remembers my cancer. But do I remember God?

We Christians always say things happen for a reason. And that God’s in control. However, when those things happen to us, do we live like we really believe it? We also say God’s always with us. Even in the bad times. And so, I believe God remembers my cancer situation. But, do I remember God?

Parable of The Wise And Foolish Builders

The Parable of The Wise And Foolish Builders.  On one level, it’s about the choice between building a house on rock or sand.  That sounds like an easy choice to make.  On another level, it’s about what we do, if anything, after hearing or reading what Jesus had to say.

What Christians need to learn about prayer from Jonah

Say what? Christians can learn about prayer from Jonah? Jonah!? The guy who ran away from God? Yeah, that Jonah. The Old Testament guy. And yes, even we Christians here in the 21st century can/should learn something from him.

What’s important to you?

What's important to you?

What’s important to you?  Do we even take time to think about that question?  Or are we just so focused on “now” that we don’t even know what’s important? 

Maybe I should say, what’s important in your future?  You know, beyond the next few minutes?  Even better, your distant future?  Where do you hope to be at the end of your life? 

In other words, what’s your life goal?  What’s important for you to be able to achieve your life goal?  Do I dare even ask if you’ve thought about the next life?  What happens after this one?

Would you leave 99 to save one? Or go for the greater good?

Would you leave 99 to save one?

Would you leave 99 to save one? 99 what and one what? 99 people and one person. In a time when we always hear about the greater good, would you do that? When we’re so willing to sacrifice a few to save many, can this 99 for 1 kind of thinking be justified?

What Christians need to learn about love from Jonah

What Christians need to learn about love from Jonah

What do Christians need to learn about love from Jonah? Seriously? Jonah is so, well, Old Testament. What can we learn from him? And love? Jonah is an example of love? But yes, I do believe there’s a lot we can and should learn about love, God’s love, from Jonah’s experience.
