The first miracle of Jesus – turning water to wine at the wedding in Cana. What was His purpose? Who are we in this story? (Jo 2:1-11)
What do you do, when God is silent? Can you accept it? Will you listen to Him? His silence is not lack of care, but is leading us back to the things we learned earlier on. (Psa 85:10 (11), 119:18, Mt 6:7, Lk 2:40, Jn 14:1)
God wishes to make much out of man. Much more than anything else.
He has no methods, but people.
(Psa 8:3-5; Acts 14:17, 17:28; 1Cor 13:11-13; Eph 4:13; Heb 2:5,16)
Technology created the loneliest generation of the history. Christ is calling you to the inner room. Because only the fellowship with God can give us our greatest need which is to get along with ourselves and with others.
(Mt 6:5-6; Heb 4:16)
We are called to live our lives in by faith. What is faith? What is saving faith? Why is faith important? It has a scary part too – what should we be careful with? And in the Bible there are many things that we can apply in the mutual faith by each other’s faith.
(Psa 46:10; Rom 1:12; 2Cor 7:13; Phili 4:8; Heb 3:2, 10:38-39, 11:1-6)
It’s interesting that in the Western world where there is internet and smart phones everywhere – and we see this happening in the world – that people become lonelier and lonelier. The reason of this is that they have less and less living connection with people. The internet gives you the sense of connection, you feel like connected but actually there is no connection there. Because real connection happens face to face, between person to person, in the other’s personal presence. Where do you start?
(Jn 15:1-9; Mat 6:5-8, 14:23; 1 Cor 12:27)
If you don’t have enough problems then you won’t think you are too small. But if you have a difficulty that makes you question everything: yourself, God, your abilities, your intelligence. We try to avoid trouble though that is a gift for us. It’s necessary. We pray so that God would take it away. But He says: I would like you to rejoice when you are in trouble. Why though?
(Psa 23:5; 2Cor 12:7a, 4:7-12)
What do you do when the sea is in front of you and the Pharaoh – Satan – and his army is behind you?
God want his people to humbleness be one of their characteristics and their main virtue. What is humility? Where can it be learnt? Why is it good for us?
(1Pet 5:5-6; Psa 33:13-14, 14:2-3; Phil 2:6-8; Mat 11:28-29, 26:53; Gal 3:13; Tit 2:14)
Mt 6:5-8 – four principles on prayer based on Jesus’ teachings
Bible – the heart of God. Holiness and grace – what do they mean in the Scripture? What do you think of how God looks at you?
(Mt 9:36, 12:7, 19:25-26, 17:5, 20:28; Jn 5:24, 6:39-40, 10:27-29, 16:27; 1Jn 4:9-10; Gal 1:10-12, 2:16,21, 4:21, 5:4,7-8)
God has the power to pour all His grace upon us to show His grace in every situation. At the moment you don’t even see it but later you can discover that His hand was there in the situation. He wants you to have everything you need. What is the thing we really need?
(Ex 6:1, Deut 3:24a, 2Cor 9:8, Luk 10:38-42)
