Intimacy is Everything

God does not call us to tasks, but to be with Him and do tasks. Godly tasks are not the ends of the Christian life. I had a revelation this weekend that for my version of faithful Christianity is so works-oriented. As if obedience is something Jesus sends us off and to do by ourselves. No, […]

Testimony: God the Protector of My Scooter and Me

Here’s a pretty sweet God story of God watching over my scooter and me. Last week Wednesday, we did a Bible study at work of Psalm 91, and the takeaway from that was that “I need to ask God for protection when I ride my scooter.” So I begin doing so that day. Thursday, I’m […]

Why Coach Tom Thibodeau Reminds Me of Jesus

In case you didn’t know, I am a pretty enthusiastic Chicago Bulls fan. When I’m not doing something important, I am busily keeping up with my beloved Bulls from California.
