THE RESURRECTION POWER LIVES IN US BELIEVERS.

THE RESURRECTION POWER LIVES IN US BELIEVERS.   I do not seem to finish the message about Easter. On Easter morning I was praying and The Holy Spirit came and made the resurrection message alive. It went from being head knowledge down to the heart. Jesus had prophesied for the disciples that He should rise on the third day, but they didn’t really understand what he was talking about. On the first day of the week after the Sabbath some women came to the tomb. They had watched the tomb of ... (read more)

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS!   I assume that you know which cross I talk about. I talk about the cross Jesus was hanging and suffering on. Many, too many people have been tortured through history, but most people have been tortured against their will, but Jesus did it because He loved us dearly. He was willing to be punished for something He didn’t do and He bore the punishment that we deserved. We might find a father being willing to die to save his wife and children, but Jesus became the ... (read more)

WHO AND WHAT DOES OTHERS SEE IN ME? Part 2

WHO AND WHAT DOES OTHERS SEE IN ME? Part 2 I had a friend calling me yesterday. She was so excited and shocked. She had been with the Lord and shared Him in different places. When she was on her way home, she was happy and felt light. What shocked her was that a woman came running up to her and grabbed her and told her how much energy that came out of her. This other woman was a stranger to my friend, but she said that she had observed her before. This happened without saying a word. My friend ... (read more)

WHO AND WHAT DOES OTHERS SEE IN ME?

WHO AND WHAT DOES OTHERS SEE IN ME? Part 1 I have become very conscious about the fact that Jesus lives in me. He moved in the day that I received Him as my Lord and Savior. He gave me a totally new nature and I was borne again. I did not receive a new body nor a new soul, but my spirit got renewed and I can truly say that I am righteous and on my way to Heaven because of His blood. The apostle Paul says in two of his letters that we should walk by the Spirit. We should identify with God in us ... (read more)

THANK YOU, DEAR JESUS.

THANK YOU, DEAR JESUS! I am writing so many Christmas letters to family and friends and letters and cards are sent to many countries in the world, but what about you Jesus? I do not think that I ever wrote to you Jesus, but it is high time to do so. I have only good things to thank you for and I must start by asking for forgiveness for the fact that I do not thank you enough. Forgive my ingratitude. Thank You Jesus for allowing me to be born into a family believing in you and in a country where ... (read more)

DO NOT GET BURNT OUT!

DO NOT GET BURNT-OUT!   We use this expression when we have done too much and one is totally worn out. We might also say that somebody has hit the wall. This describes a situation when we really can’t do more. It’s enough. Does God want us to hit the wall? No, He has never given us yokes that are so heavy that we hit the wall. “But I have worked for a Christian organization or I have worked for my church”, some of you might say. That doesn’t convince me. You ... (read more)

HOW DO WE REACH THE GOAL?

HOW DO WE REACH THE GOAL?   What kind of goal? Many people are living without any specific purpose and may sing a song that is translated like this: “What happens, happens and I can’t say or do something about that. They have surrendered their lives to fate, but what is fate? It certainly isn’t God. They do not take responsibility over their own lives and do not know exactly where they are headed. Others live with a very strict program and there is no opening for ... (read more)

DROP EVERYTHING.

DROP EVERYTHING.   I am sure that you are wondering what will be coming. Even I am not quite sure, but I do have an idea behind the title. I recently came in a situation where I had to drop all my plans. I all of a sudden got sick. There were many plans connected with the main plan. I was supposed to go both to Norway and Poland and I had several commitments in Norway. It was not too difficult to drop all the plans, but it led to the fact that the Lord started talking to me about the ... (read more)

WE ARE IN THE WORLD, BUT NOT OF THE WORLD.

WE ARE IN THE WORLD, BUT NOT OF THE WORLD.   Some people think that they have so many problems or they might think that so many bad things are happening that they desire to get away, far away. Some people desire to leave this world and the suicidal statistics are quite high, especially among the youth. Others turn their attention towards heaven and want to go home to God. Both categories desire to run away from the present. I am thinking about the Christians when I say that we are in the ... (read more)

WHAT ARE MY PRIORITIES WHEN IT COMES TO TIME AND MONEY?

WHAT ARE MY PRIORITIES WHEN IT COMES TO TIME AND MONEY?   This theme is about our focus. What is important to us and what priorities are we making? That really differs from person to person, from family to family and also from different cultures and religious groups. We are also having a variety of more factors as well concerning our choices. Yes, that’s what it is all about, our choices. You might protest and say that you have other people deciding over your choices. If you are an adult ... (read more)
