How is Christian maturity defined? In conversations with people throughout the years, I’ve come to realize that people have a tendency to equate knowledge with maturity and age with maturity.  It’s a common mistake. We’re encouraged and driven to study and learn about God and His Word. And although knowledge brings about a certain level…

What is Holiness?

Many people assume holiness is synonymous with conduct. This common mistake confuses the root with the fruit. And although holiness produces proper conduct (fruit), at its purest form (root), holiness is the act of separating and dedicating oneself for a certain purpose. Holiness begins with a decision. Holiness begins with a choice that’s based out of…

Worry v/s Meditate

The only way we grow in our relationship with Christ is through prayer and meditating on His Word. And the only way we’ll know how to pray is by creating a daily habit of feeding on the Word. I’ve come to the conclusion that a believer who doesn’t read and study the Bible doesn’t really…

The Two Common Lies

Evil is deception. From the beginning, the concept of evil has always been the deceptive and contradictory voice of Satan and his domain. Satan is not what we project him to be.

Jesus said many times, “He who has an ear let him hear.”  According to the Bible, God has been communicating with us since the beginning.  When God seems silent, it’s not that He stopped speaking to us rather it’s us that stopped listening to him. God is continually acting on our behalf.  He desires to…

Shock Jock Jesus

The message of the Kingdom of God has always been and will forever be difficult to swallow.  The ways of God’s kingdom are contrary and opposing to our nature.  That’s why Jesus had to be the greatest “shock jock” of all time. A shock jock is generally a speaker whose mannerism and message are typically…
