John Eldredge on Betrayal

Everyone has been betrayed by someone, some more profoundly than others. Betrayal is a violation that strikes at the core of our being; to make ourselves vulnerable and entrust our well-being to another, only to be harmed by those on whom our hopes were set is among the worst pain of the human experience. Sometimes the way God treats us feels like betrayal. John Eldredge, … Continue reading John Eldredge on Betrayal

Church is Anesthetized to the Message of God’s Love

We have become so comfortable with the idea that God loves you who desires to have a personal relationship with you. We have become numb to the fact that God gave his one and only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to atone for our sin because of his unchangeable love for his creation. This magnanimous love, truth, and divine mystery no longer moves us now. The tragic … Continue reading Church is Anesthetized to the Message of God’s Love

Good Friday: When Something Bad Turns to be Good

This is a teaching on Good Friday that I did for the church few weeks ago. One of the youths in the church approached me and asked if I could do a short teaching on the topic and why we observe something such a bad day in the history to be something so good for us. The video is in Nepali though. Continue reading Good Friday: When Something Bad Turns to be Good

Martha: “I Do Not Understand Your Timing”

I kept lagging behind in posting particularly this one post. Few weeks ago, some youth from my church came to me and asked if I would preach on the death of Lazarus (John 11:1-44). They had composed a song and showed me the lyrics to play as a response song to the sermon. They even asked me to join them in the band. I had no reason to say “no” to their humble invitation to play my harmonica with them after listening to them singing. That was my first attempt to play any music instrument before the congregation.

"But Blessed is the One Who Trusts in the LORD"

In my previous post, I already wrote that I am not a singing material. Throughout my short and long-term missions, I acted like singing when the team had to. Nevertheless, I always fully enjoyed when my teammates would sing Gospel songs whenever and wherever we found people during trips. Those days are quite hard to forget, thus I have a hard time overcoming this nostalgia … Continue reading "But Blessed is the One Who Trusts in the LORD"
