C-Text Christian Blog: What is Faith? III

Monday, March 27, 2017. Do we have trust that God hears us? When we are honest, we find a lot of doubt in our hearts. Is God there? Perhaps we are relatively convinced that there is a God. But what do we know, what can we expect. Even those who know the bible and who have learned a lot about faith have their questions and their doubt! Jesus about Faith ... Jesus tells a story about faith and about prayer. He talks about someone who keeps coming to someone else to reach a goal. He puts it as a template for us and God: 1 And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. 2 He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neithe...

C-Text Christian Blog: What is Faith? II

Thursday, March 23, 2017. It is faith that is in the center of all biblical books. What is faith? Faith is a universe by its own. It is rich. It is deep. It is fascinating. It is passive, active, listening, speaking ... Increase our faith! ... When you look for words about faith, you find quite different statements by Jesus. He gives far reaching promises. He performs miracles in the name of faith to God, his father. He calls people from death to life! And he talks about the power of faith: Lk 17,5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” Lk 17,6 And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ...

C-Text Christian Blog: What is Faith?

Tuesday, March 21, 2017. It is faith that is in the center of all biblical books. What is faith? It is trusting God. It is putting the creator and source of this world into the center of our life. It is about the perspective of our life, about what it is, what it is filled with ... And there is more: faith is a relationship. But let us go step by step into more detail! Jesus on Faith ... Faith is more than just thinking something is true. It is about my personal relationship to that truth. In the bible this is made very clear: even the demons and the devil know the truth, but they do not live in it. So it is about what makes my life. But there is more. Let us look into the...

C-Text Christian Blog: Transfiguration

Tuesday, March 14, 2017. Sometimes we need strong evidence to believe something. Truth is difficult to be sure of. Too often we have different people who claim different things - and we all know that reality needs interpretations, and that sometimes things are neither black nor white. Jesus on the Mount ... Looking into the gospel of Luke, we find the story of the "transfiguration" of Jesus in chapter 9. Have a look, it is quite amazing: 28 Now about eight days after these sayings he took with him Peter and John and James and went up on the mountain to pray. 29 And as he was praying, the appearance of his face was altered, and his clothing became dazzling white. (f... [more]

 

C-Text Christian Blog: Discover Life

Monday, March 13, 2017. What is life about? When you ask yourself - what is it that comes to your mind first? Is it holidays, nice images of landscape, beaches, fun and sports? Or is it suffering and destruction, which we experience in so many places of this world? Jesus and the Cross ... Several times during his ministry Jesus had a discussion about life with his disciples. It was a very special discussion. He talked about his death - and his disciples were discussing life and power and perspective. Jesus tried to teach them important things, but they were still on another track. Listen to the following passage of the gospel of Luke: 23 And he said to all, “If an... [more]

 
 
 

C-Text Christian Blog: The Gideon Experience

Monday, June 4, 2012. Over the weekend I have been intensively studying the story of Gideon, as it is written in Judges 6-8. It is a fascinating story, which is about purity of the heart as well as about power and control in this world. Who is in control? ... The story of Gideon has happened more than 3000 years ago. But it is a story which puts many questions into our modern world. Gideon lived in a time where the people of Israel were suppressed by another people. And then God called him to free his kind. Gideon was not strong, his family did not have big influence. But he was pure in heart and followed the Lord. Judges 7 tells the story of the big fight, where God ... [more]

 

C-Text Christian Blog: Smart with Money?

Wednesday, June 6, 2012. With a friend I had a long discussion about money recently. We went through the whole story: salary, kids, house, car, ... How important is money for us and what does it have to do with reason? Do I have enough money? ... First of all: if you are responsible for the finances of a family, you probably had times in the past where you had to think carefully about money. To live with three or four or five from one or a little more than one salary can be challenging. But how important is money for us? How does it influence our feeling, our self-esteem, our activities and plans? We live in a society which is built on consumption. The marketing w... [more]

 

C-Text Christian Blog: Who is doing the work?

Monday, June 11, 2012. How strong are your contribution to your fate? Are you in control of your success, of all the things which happen to you? How far does your control go? Are you doing the work which is leading you to the next step in your life? General and personal perspective ... We need to briefly look at two general perspectives. First of all, there is the general perspective. Society is influencing itself. We harvest what we sowed. We earn the consequences of our actions. In the general view we are in control by natural laws, and we earn what we deserve. That might be true on some general level. But there is the individual perspective as well. The single pers... [more]
