People often divide others into groups, but it is not fair to generalize individuals based on group labels. Instead, we can focus on embracing our unique identities and purpose as individuals just like God created us to be. Paul encourages us to embrace our life in Christ and the way others reflect his image.

Speaking of Life 5010 | The Who Question

If you read Psalm 15, you could easily say that no one would ever fit any of the descriptions when the psalmist collectively asks the question, who is worthy to be in the presence of God? No one is righteous enough. No one can always be kind and blameless. The only one who would fit the description is Jesus! He has always been in God’s presence as God’s very own Son. Through Christ, we learn to be righteous. Through Christ, we learn to be loving and kind. Through Christ, we can stand in God’s presence by the Spirit and experience the complete grace and glory of God our Father.

Speaking Of Life 5009 │ Are You Afraid of the Dark?

As kids or even as adults, some of us might have felt scared of being in the dark. Science tells us that we need the dark for good health because light exposure at night can affect our bodies’ internal sleep rhythms and hormones. Comparably, in our Christian journey, experiencing troubles or trials is natural. Don’t let this discourage you. Christ is here with us. Even though we experience darkness in life, we can always be assured that he will bring us back to the light.
