How Does God’s Light Help Us Grow?

Once we believe in the Lord Jesus and receive Him as our Savior and our life, we need to grow in this divine life day by day. But we can’t grow just by deciding to, or by exerting our own effort.

How Do We Live Our Christian Life?

It’s common for us believers to think we should be right in our conduct, be kind, do good works, and live up to the words in the Bible.

Finding the Power Supply for Our Christian Life

Many of us have experienced glancing at our cell phone to see that the battery is in the red zone.

But praise the Lord, when we’re born again, the blood of...

Did you know the Bible speaks of something called transformation? It’s found in these two New Testament verses: 2 Corinthians 3:18: But we all with unveiled face, beholding and reflecting like a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord Spirit. Romans 12:2: And do not be fashioned according to this age, but be...
