Devotion: It is the Lord!


This is taken from a devotion on Utmost.org.  Beware of anything that competes with your loyalty to Jesus Christ. The greatest competitor of true devotion to Jesus is the service we do for Him. It is easier to serve than to pour out our lives completely for Him. The goal of the call of God is His satisfaction, not simply that we should do something for Him. We are not sent to do battle for...

Laying down our lives


The first ten min of Francis Chan preached hits home. This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with...



Hanging out with R on the street….reading Jackie Pullinger and her accounts of sharing the gospel in Walled City… … I can still remember that night when I was out on the street in a cold Canadian winter night. I was at Nathan Philip Square. The howling wind made every pedestrian walked faster. It was quiet, even for downtown. No one wanted to stop and talk.  Everyone is...

Reconciliation and peace..appearance of weakness


In most heated situations, when you know you can win the argument because you have every facts and points down to the bone…..you know their counter arguments and you know how to counter those counter arguments.  You know how to work the crowd.  Get them to view what you view.  Jab a word here and there to tick the other side off.  Or say a few things to make the other...

Debts and debtors


I was reading Matthew 6 this morning….the Lord’s prayer… 9 “This, then, is how you should pray:    ” ‘Our Father in heaven,    hallowed be your name, 10  your kingdom come,    your will be done       on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12  Forgive us our debts...

Dirty Hands


Today I did a long ride up to Caledon and back. The whole trip was more than three hours. As I was riding back, there was a strong head wind. Despite all the pedaling, it felt like I wasn’t going anywhere. I never felt so happy to see the Welcome sign to my city. On the way back, I noticed my hands were particularly dirty. They must have smudged from the duct tapes on the handle bar. Then I...

A promise of God’s Grace: A Prodigal God


I’ve been listening to Tim Keller‘s sermons on the Prodigal Son (Luke 15) for the past week. Today I loaded all of them up on my dad’s iPod Shuffle (I am testing it for him :P) and hit the trails. One of Tim’s sermons was entitled, The True Older Brother (Luke 15:17-32). To give a quick background of the parable, the older brother represents the Pharisees. Tim then pointed...

The Living God that Speaks


Of all the miracles that happen upon my life, there is none more vivid than when the Lord spoke to me. Looking back, I often don’t think this was important. Lately, I’ve been reflecting these experiences and compared them with the Bible. Moses and the Burning Bush (Exodus 3:4) : When the LORD saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses...

Unity in Christ: Beyond race and nationality


Before Jesus was taken up to Heaven, He told the disciples the following: But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8) The verse is an introduction for the book of Acts. The apostles shared Jesus in Jerusalem…then they went off to Judea and Samaria….then...

Jesus You are Worthy


Jesus You are mercy. Jesus You are justice. Jesus You are worthy. That is what you are. You die alone to save me. You rose so You can raise me. You did all this to make me, a chosen child of God. Worthy is the Lamb that once was slain. To receive all glory, power and praise. For with your blood, you purchase us for God. Jesus, You are worthy. In the storms and darkness, this is the lyrics that I...
