What if COVID-19 would his and kill us this year? The year 2021 is riskier than other years in our lifetime. Big governments tell us that. True or not, we must prepare spiritually for any eventuality. We could be hit anytime since COVID-19 is unseen—it is unpredictable as lightning particularly in countries with poor hospital equipment and resources. Where shall we go should this virus put us to sleep forever? The first question which a sensible old person—taking maintenance drug—should ask while in the hospital bed is, “Can I get out of this place alive?”

The Christian Doctrine of Finding True Happiness

christian-teachings-revisited

Charles Spurgeon once said, “Those who are ‘beloved of the Lord’ must be the most happy and joyful people to be found anywhere upon the face of the earth.” This truth is proven by the born-again Christians. The fake Christians cannot experience real happiness with Christ since they don’t belong to Jesus. The apostle Paul said that only those indwelt by Christ’s Spirit belong to Christ. (Rom. 8:9) The joyfulness of God’s people is experienced by Christ’s followers whom our Lord imparts His own peace. It is the Christian doctrine of finding true happiness: The peace of Jesus and the hope of eternal life which our Lord gives to those who are His. (John 10:27-30)

Moving Forward in Life With Confidence

Have Confidence and Move Forward ▸

THE ONLY PROVEN method to move forward in life with confidence is not the recipe of college education, a good job, or a bounteous inheritance. Life is God-given; we cannot isolate it from God’s mysterious nature and qualities. Our love for our family, for example, is priceless. It can neither be bought, copied, nor duplicated. In Steve Jobs’ last words [some said Jobs did not say it!], he mentioned how worthless was his wealth and fame compared to his loved ones. God is love; He taught us love or intense feeling of affection with the mark of God’s imprimatur in it. Why the young kids make us happy? We see the joy in their baby talk and artless entertainment. It is because “God loves the little children.” Why are we indignant with robbers, rapists, and even the bad-mouthing of our leaders and friends? Well, it is on account of God’s hatred of what is sinful and evil. Cruelty fills us with revulsion. We are God’s image, full of our maker’s fingerprints. We can feel His anger. Hence, we can move forward in life with the confidence only in the mighty hand of God—only if we believe we are safe in His loving arms. Wrote the Apostle Paul: “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?” (Rom. 8:31)
