“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” [1 Peter 2:9-10]
Are you born again? Do you believe that Jesus Christ lived, died and rose from the grave to deliver you from your sins? Most of us will be quick to echo that we believe in Jesus as “a” Savior. But we hesitate when it comes to answering whether Jesus is “our” Lord. Is Jesus Lord over your life? Does what He says go in your life? Or are you still holding on to your precious unaccountable autonomy? Who rules over your decisions? Whom do you check with when in a moral or ethical dilemma? But wait, how can Jesus not be Lord over what He has purchased with His own blood?
The proof that Jesus is your Savior actually lies in the evidence of His Lordship over your life.
You cannot separate the Lord from the Savior.
This blog is for the teachable Christian (by a -hopefully – teachable blogger) who is tired of worldly thinking and yearns to see the world through the Biblical lens. It is for the disillusioned Christian who is done with political correctness and now yearns for spiritual uprightness. It is for the desperate believer who is tired of inward, selfish and people-pleasing thinking and longs to have a Walk that it upright, self-less and God-pleasing.
This blog is for the Aliens in this world, trying to find their way back home to their Father land.
“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” [2 Corinthians 10:3-5]
The author(s) of this blog believe that the renewal of our hearts begins with the renewal of our minds. This blog challenges you to think like Christ. It prompts you to view the world, your own heart and the circumstances around you through the eyes of Christ. In doing this, our aim is to inspire you to translate your Biblical thinking into Biblical living.
Good living begins with clear thinking, and the clearest form of thinking is Christ-al Clear thinking.
Of course, the thoughts of the authors in this blog are not perfect. They are neither inerrant nor infallible, but they are honest, feeble attempts at submitting to the authority of scripture.
Please note that the reference to the authors’ fallibility is not to be misconstrued for a license to be flippant and careless in thinking through issues. It should be viewed as an openness to the much needed correction and accountability from more discerning readers and members of the Body of Christ.
This blog, besides inspiring you to be perfect (holy), will also remind you that no one (including the author) is perfect except Jesus Christ. But it is my prayer that the Holy Spirit will help us all to see beyond and through any false reasoning in these thoughts. May you see through to the heart and the motive behind each post – to glorify Christ and rightly enjoy God. May our lives aim to please Christ alone. May our thoughts remain fastened to Him, and may God speak to you, even when the authors fail to.
