Future and distant future


If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. – C S Lewis What Jesus (Matthew 6:25-34) say: 25″For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you...

A Desire for a new world


I think sometimes I get stuck in the only Christian desire a new earth (and new heaven)…. When I listen to a song like this, I can’t help but to see that those who don’t know Christ have a desire for a new world too when we look at the brokeness of today’s culture 🙂 They gotta war for oil, a war for goldA war for money and a war for soulsA war on terror, a war on drugsA...

My King is moving

Through the worship, all I can think about is Open Door and Mississauga. I was listening to Reggie McNeal the other day. He was talking about the King is on the move and the church in AD 30 was trying to catch up. Sometimes, when I sit...

And soon you will have another...

Five pages long. Though, the process seemed much longer than that. I’ve been thinking about what’s Kingdom of God mean. John the Baptist (Matthew 3:2) and Jesus (Matthew 4:17) both said...

Believer or a follower?


A few days ago during lunch, I asked a brother the difference between a follower and a disciple of Christ. To be honest, I am quite sarcastic as I asked him. I knew the answer already. However, I want to see from his point of view. If there is a weakness in me, it is fact that I made a judgment too quickly. He said that a Christian should be both. Sadly, we are living in a culture, church...
