Fans of fiction writings can easily see traces of the biblical gospel in the literature they read. They may not be aware it or they might not admit it, readers gets suck into the stories that have been told over and over again. As Christians, we need to be aware of two things. One, God implanted those stories in our very being and two, although we see the glimpses of the redemption story of Christ, those stories wont save us. They’re merely pointing us to the gospel itself that we need for the forgiveness of sins and salvation.Read More »

It’s February and a few days more, Lent or Holy Week will start. It will be a time to commemorate Christ death, burial and triumphant resurrection. As much as Christmas is important, so is Lent for Christians. But how do we celebrate this event? We ask Robert J. Nash, author of Last Words: Seven Sayings from the Heart of Christ on the Cross, on how we can make Lent an occasion that will last through the year and the coming years.

That is a great question. While Easter was important when I’m growing up, Lent wasn’t. For many of the people I knew, all Lent meant was cutting out sugar for forty days. Now, as a pastor, husband, and father, I realize a new value of Lent. Lent offers us the opportunity to prepare our hearts as we remember the sacrifice Jesus made for our souls. It helps us slow down and be honest about what we have done and not done, what we have said and not said, what we have thought and not thought. We can take a good look in the mirror and see our sin for what it is. That look reminds us of our need for a savior and builds appreciation and reverence for what he did.

We might feel joy, lost, doubts and depression. In our prayer we will discover not just what those truths mean to us but how it will shape us in the process. We cannot escape the fact as part of our theology, also reveals our view on God. Knowing God provides our prayer life a fervent devotion to Him and how our human experiences find context with this kind of knowledge.Read More »
