“Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.”

Matthew 10:39

When Jesus came on earth, His message went against anything they had ever heard. It challenged the status quo; it reversed the order. It is the revelation of Jesus that taught us that the secret of strength is in weakness, for when you are weak then you are strong (2 Corinthians 12:10). It is the revelation of Jesus that taught us that the secret of blessing is in poverty, “blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” (Matthew 5:3)

Acts of faith are but acts of self-surrender – putting an absolute stop to our own way, own work or own thought and to rest in God’s love, wisdom and power. That is what Jesus showed us when He laid down His life for our salvation.

Jesus was capable of coming down from the Cross unhurt but He knew that sometimes we have to do what we hate to create something we love. He knew there is great power in surrender.


“As a child of your Heavenly Father, there is a promise for you in Isaiah 43:1 that you have been redeemed by God, that He called you by name and you are His. What does it mean to belong to God? Once Christ purchases us with His Blood, we become aliens here on earth and there is a barrier between us and everything here in this world.”


“Jesus is the One looking for you. He is looking for your attention. All around you are signs calling you to get back to God. That is why the heartbeat of the Gospel is the call to repentance – so you can be consecrated and reconciled to your Creator. Have you consecrated your heart to Him?”


“The peace that God gives is more powerful than the noise of the adversary. When Jesus in the boat spoke to the storm, the howling winds and waves obeyed His voice. (Matthew 8:26) What is your storm today? When you put your problems into God’s hands, He will put His peace in your heart and that is the real victory because if you truly believe, your heart will be at rest.”
