What’s clouding your faith? (part 2)

In Part 1 of this blog, we talked about the fact that not only can our personal pain cloud our faith, but other people’s walk with God can also affect the way we see God.

What I didn’t mention in the first part is that on Saturday 27th of June 2020 the weather was what I call “moody”. It was first sunny and hot; then it moved to cold and rainy. The heavy rain started when we were in a park, and we took shelter under a tree with two other guys. Something was telling me to evangelise to them, but I was more worried about the fact that I was getting wet.

What’s clouding your faith? (Part 1)

On Saturday 27th of June 2020, my friend Rianne and I spontaneously decided to evangelise in the city. We had great conversations, but all of them didn’t believe because of “something” that happened or didn’t happen in their lives.

The first lady we spoke to believes in humanity and not in God because she was from Iran and had seen a lot of atrocities. Her pain is real, but that same pain is clouding her vision to see God for who He really is. When you think about it, she chose to believe in the same humanity that caused her pain than God who died on the cross for her. We told her that we hoped that she could put her trust in Jesus because only Him can’t disappoint us, because He is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

All you need is “a little cloud”

One of the things I started doing during quarantine is painting. And as I finished painting today, the image reminded of 1 Kings 18:44 that says: Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea.” Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’”

When I look at the paint, I see a volcano, a chaotic situation like the one we are living in today. However, with Jesus, there is always HOPE if you choose to believe it. Continue reading “All you need is “a little cloud””

FILL THE ORDINARY JARS

We can’t do many regular activities today because of the lockdown, and many of us are struggling with finding ways to stay busy. Also, in these daily struggles, we wonder whether God will come through for us tomorrow.

John 2:7-8 Jesus told the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” When the jars had been filled, he said, “Now dip some out, and take it to the master of ceremonies.” So the servants followed his instructions. (NLT)

This passage is about the time Jesus turned water into wine because the wedding ran out of wine. However, we want to focus on the servants’ attitude. The servants knew that the jars were filled with water because they filled them, yet they had the boldness to serve their master that same drink.

There are two things that we can learn from this passage: Continue reading “FILL THE ORDINARY JARS”
