Living with Unshakeable Faith DOUBT/FEAR

It was the Apostle Paul who said in Philippians 1:13: “For I can do everything with the help of Christ Who gives me the strength I need.” It’s not that we are strong, it’s that Christ in us gives us strength. We don’t have the ability to stand strong when things go wrong. But with God in our lives, with …

Facing Doubt with Unshakeable Faith!

Unshakeable Faith – talking about Facing Doubt with Unshakeable Faith! It’s easy to have faith when things are going good, isn’t it?

Abide At His Table

Chances are, for more than a few of you, the family table was never a place where your faith was nourished, or where you felt welcomed, or where you ever felt much gratitude for what life had dished out to you. If not, why not break the cycle and start all over? It was Jesus Himself who said, “I no …

Abide Together

The key to life transformation is Abiding in Jesus – to make a home for Jesus. So when we ask the question, ‘How do I know I am changing?’ – Jesus said it’s all about bearing fruit– and it is in relationships where we see the fruit of Abiding! Jesus said we are to love others as He loves us, so we will look at how this practically takes place in the life of …
