Real Peace of Mind and Heart: Possible Only in Christ

How to have real peace of mind and heart? The Bible teaches two kinds of peace. One is given by the world; the other, by Christ Jesus. “My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you.” The natural man tends to seek after the real peace of this world. His surest formula to have the tranquility of mind and soul is to have a whirl with friends. Or, sometimes he would choose to waste his energy in mountain climbing or travels to attain real peace hopefully.

Annoyingly Persistent Prayer is What God Requires

Of an annoyingly persistent prayer: Who can do it? David's prayer to God for the recovery of his sick son with Bathsheba is one biblical example of a persistent prayer. The Bible stated that the child "was very sick. David, therefore, inquired of God for the child; and David fasted and went and lay all night on the ground. The elders of his household stood beside him in order to raise him up from the ground, but he was unwilling and would not eat food with them." (2 Sam. 12:1b-17) Only the real believers can do such agonizingly persistent prayer!

Preaching a Great Sermon or Cow Preaching — Yelling Minus a Working Outline?

I have the opportunity of listening to a few (paid) public speakers and noticed their control of the audience. Jesus Christ, our Lord, Peter, John, the Apostle Paul, among other Bible characters, did not do cow preaching, did they? Good speakers don't shout; neither do they bang their lectern habitually! For they can easily control their audience by their natural gift for public speaking; by their logic, their humor, their flawless eloquence, and oratory.

One Important Life Principle Needed

One important life principle to find fulfillment and joy that have caused me a bit of time reflecting on is the so-called law of attraction. Is it true that the only way to get everything is to give everything? The most hospitable place where almost all are given for free (at least on the surface) is the Internet.

Facing Trials in the Power of Abraham’s Faith

We are facing trials every once in a while as part of our unsinkable imperfections in this life. Earth is not the dreamland; suicide, therefore, is abnormal and committed by those experiencing mental illness known as depression. God's parting words for Adam were not a happy anticipation of a life away from paradise. Now, we swallow the pill as children of Adam, the sinner. There are ordeals, tons of them in this domain. Facing trials head-on, like struggling with cancer or kidney disorder, is the only rational option available to each one of us. But we can only resist the...

happiness christ better experienced than explained

Happiness in Christ is Better Experienced Than Explained

Joy or positive emotions that we habitually experience with our inner being defines happiness. Such emotion, therefore, of delight and bliss starts from within us rather than by the stimulus that has caused the sense of satisfaction. You have a joyful experience seeing your grandchild, for example, an emotion that your wife does not share since she disliked her daughter-in-law very much. Caused outwardly at the surface by a particular stimulant, your happiness or unhappiness remains a subjective and personal option. Succinctly, it is you who choose to be happy!
