The House that God Designed

Part 1 of Why Church is Important 1 Corinthians 3:16; Acts 2:42-47; 14:23-28 We are indeed deep into the digital age. Almost everything can be viewed in the internet, using many different platforms such as TV, personal computers, Web, smart phones and social media. We are connected almost anywhere in the world. Bible teachings, preaching, blogs can all be found in the internet. Even the church worship can be viewed individually through your computers and smart devices. Hence, some wrongly believe that they don’t really need the physical church making the it unimportant. This belief is unbiblical, and it is wrong. God did not design His household to be virtual (See 1 Timothy 3:15). He designe

The greatest enemy of God isn't Satan

"Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful." Mark 4:18-19 NIV Many Christians believed that God's greatest adversary is the Devil. Books have been written, and arts have been crafted to depict this battle between God and Satan. The book of Revelation gave a futuristic picture of what this war would be like in the future, God versus evil, and God's holy angels against the power of darkness. Satan's days are numbered and he is bound to be punished forever. But sadly, God's greatest enemy isn't Satan and his evil cohorts but God's very own "

Stubborn Love and Grace for Stubborn People

The Parable of the Tenants Luke 20:9-19 The song The Greatest Love of All was a hit in the 70’s. And it even became popular after eight years. This song is about loving the self. But come to think of it, if the greatest love of all is learning to love oneself, then how come we are still messing up our lives? How come that the people we know, who loves themselves so much, ended up hurting themselves and others around him? Love for the self, isn’t the greatest after all? The Bible tells us, that the greatest love of all isn’t found on the self, but in God alone. “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the

Growing Deep Roots In Christ

Colossians 2:1-7 2nd Anniversary, GCF Durham The Shepherd’s Tree can grow up to 30 feet. It has large branches that can provide shade to people and animals to protect them against the scorching heat of the South African desert. But what is amazing about this tree, is not its size, or the shade but its roots. The roots can reach around 220 feet far down the ground. It grows so deep that it can suck the water and nutrients underground and keep it alive even without rain for many months. It is also the tree’s way of surviving from the searing heat of the African desert. The Bible also speaks of spiritual roots. These roots simply refer to the believer’s faith in Christ. And just as the roots ar

The Noble King and His Servants

The Parable of the Ten Minas, Luke 19:10-27 Jesus tells a very familiar story that his listeners would easily understand. It may not be the same today, but it was in his time. Jesus speaks of everyday life that most Judeans would know, like, farming, business, kingdoms, kings, servants, and severe punishment. Here’s Jesus’ story conveying rewards as a strong motivation to serve. 1. The key to understanding the story. “10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10 Jesus made it plain and simple to understand. He did not come to overthrow any government. He came to provide salvation. 2. The reason for the parable. “11 While they were listening to this, he went on to tell

How To be Right with God

The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector Part 14 Parable series, Luke 18:9-14 This parable answers one of life’s greatest questions, “How can I be right with God?” Man has been struggling with this question for thousands of years. Even the book of Job in our Bible, that is said to be the oldest Scripture, has this question, “4 How then can a mortal be righteous before God?” Job 25:4. In the New Testament, Jesus uses the Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector to teach that, on our own, we cannot be right or justified with God. Have you ever wondered; how can a person be of right standing before God? Jesus answers this question by giving us the Parable of the Pharisee and the T
