Our sin is great. But God’s mercy is greater. God is not just merciful – he is rich in mercy.  “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.” Inde...

Come with all your heart to Jesus Christ and ask Him in faith forgiveness of your sins, the salvation of your soul, the healing of your life, and you will be saved, you and your household. Indeed, God “desires all people to be saved.” 1 Timothy 2:4

Our Lord Jesus Christ does not want us to fear — no fear of insecurity, no fear of poverty and want, no fear of illnesses, no fear of death. He wants us to see that God is the kind of God whose people do not need to fear. God is our Father. And since He gives us a king...

Reading and meditating God’s Word is the key to turning on the lamp. When we do that, we bring light to our life. When this psalm was written, the “lamp” was a candle in a lamp people would carry around. The lamp, as the flashlight today, light downs our path at every...

In his first letter St. John the Evangelist writes a lot about how a person can know if he/she belongs to God or not; He gives a series of tests by which we can examine our lives, our behavior, our attitudes and our faith to see where we are. And at the end, John wants...

Before I came to the United States, the 4th of July was just a day for me. Yet since last year it became an opportunity for me, as it is for the millions of Americans, to thank God for the abundant blessings that he has bestowed upon this blessed country called the Uni...
