Transforming lives. Transforming the world.

Obama, Nobel Prize and Grace

  Photo by CNN       In light of Obama’s acceptance speech of the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway, I couldn’t help but to think about a very important biblical doctrine – the doctrine of grace. I have seen the speech on the internet and I have (believe it or not) read through […]

Failed Commitments

  Photo by The North Face       I have always been teaching people in our church that you know what is important to a person not by their words, but by their actions because words are cheap, but actions are costly. It has been a rough several weeks for me in the area […]

World AIDS Day

  Photo from bioethics.net       Yesterday was World AIDS Day. It got started back on December 1st, 1988 with the vision of bringing awareness to the AIDS pandemic and to fight prejudice against people with AIDS. Over the years, they have tried to raise money to find a cure and also to improve […]

The Ultimate Sacrifice

  Photo from dunia-kita       All over Indonesia, Muslims are celebrating Idul Adha today. The Idul Adha is known as the “Festival of Sacrifice.” It highlights, Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael to Allah. The celebration will last throughout this weekend.

Thanksgiving 2010 Reflections

  Photo from PC World       As I am getting older, I am seeing the correlation between gratitude and remembrance. In essence, the more we remember, the more we can develop a heart of gratitude. Now, one caveat in this simple principle is the assumption that we have learned how to see life […]

Hearing God’s Voice

  Photo on WordPress       I have always been fascinated with moms who are able to hear the cry of their baby in a room filled with crying babies. It has to be a special gift because for most fathers, all crying sounds made by babies sound the same. The intimate relationship the […]

The U.S. Can Learn a Few Things

  Photo from worldofstock.com       The world is changing; and it is changing at rapid speeds. When it comes to global issues such as the military, healthcare, environmental concerns, the economy, and etc. the United States has always led the way and the discussions. But the winds are slowly changing and it seems […]

The Problem with Power

  Photo from Myers Elementary School       This past week, I have been thinking a lot about the issue of power or authority. Everywhere you look there are people who have power and authority – the power to make decisions, the power to direct people, the power to open up opportunities and the […]

The Reality of Spiritual Warfare

  Photo by weeklyrob       I remember growing up as a new Christian in high school and some of my spiritual leaders would tell me the catch-22 that Christians face, especially when it comes to spiritual warfare. The catch-22 goes like this – “If you are growing spiritually, Satan will come against you […]

Prelude to Revival

  Photo from chrisbraymusic.com       A. W. Tozer wrote, “Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on of late–and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it simply will not work. To pray for revival […]

From the Crowd to the Core

  Photo on dpnow.com       In all new church plants, one of the biggest concerns or dilemmas is trying to figure out how to get people who visit your church to become committed disciples who will take on the role of leadership. Usually the linear process is: bring visitors in, reach out to […]

Obsessed with Fame
