    Relationship Advice from Colossians 3:18-25

    Let’s draw some relationship advice from Colossians 3:18-25. Human relationships are some of the most difficult aspects of daily life we face. No matter who you are, you are connected to a vast web of people, such as parents, spouses, in-laws, children, employers, friends, and relatives that you interact with regularly. Moreover, no matter who you are, you are also marred by the effects of the fall, and these effects are inevitably revealed in your interactions with other people.  This passage draws three key truths that you need to know, in order to build godly relationships with the people around you.

    Perseverance And Pursuit Of Godliness In Lifestyle

    In this last post of my pursuit of godliness series (Part 1 and Part 2 here), I want to write about a true mark of the Christian life: perseverance. I also want to shed some light into our lifestyle – for our accountability and perhaps for your encouragement. Since we got married, George and I have had a mutual conviction to live in a simple and single-minded way. We always hoped that our lifestyle would intentionally display Christ to the world. We attempt to give up worldly desires that distract us, striving to love God and love others. I am thankful that God brought us to unity in our convictions.…
