The Bible is filled with commands to give thanks to God (Psalm 106:1; 107:1; 118:1; 1 Chronicles 16:34; 1 Thessalonians 5:18). Most verses go on to list reasons why we should thank Him, such as “His love endures forever” (Psalm 136:3), “He is good” (Psalm 118:29), and “His mercy is everlasting” (Psalm 100:5). Thanksgiving and praise always go together. We cannot adequately praise and worship God without also being thankful. Feeling and expressing appreciation is good for us. Like any wise...

Ingratitude is a character trait that manifest itself as a lack of appreciation or thankfulness due for a favour received. The Bible tells us that it is important for believers in Christ to appreciate and show gratitude to God for the manifold blessings that He gives daily. It is especially important for us to appreciate God for who He is and constantly give Him thanks for the salvation of our souls, the redemption of humanity, the favour He surrounds us with,...

It’s bad enough realizing that the world is a sad place. But feeling the effects of that world—experiencing grief, sorrow and mourning—can be devastating. And so Jesus addressed mourning in the second of His Beatitudes. The first Beatitude addressed being poor in spirit—recognizing our own weakness compared to God’s greatness and realizing our dependence on Him. Once someone reaches that point, then he or she is capable of looking at everything with a new set of eyes. And sometimes those eyes will be filled...

Question: "What does ‘blessed are those who mourn’ mean?" Answer: Matthew 5 records the part of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount known as the Beatitudes. Verse 4 says, "Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted." It is important to remember that this portion of Jesus’ teaching was directed toward His closest friends, not the general population (verse 2). We cannot pull one or two verses from the whole and build a theology around them. This sermon was a collection of truths designed...

Are you tired of sin – not just of its consequences, but also that it keeps happening? Are you tired, not just of the consequences of your sin, but also that it keeps happening? Do you mourn over the fact that your desire to be good does not always come forth in what you do and say? How can you be “filled with the oil of gladness?” “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4. Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 7:10, “For...

The word of God is full of mysteries. Our Bible reading today reveals one of such mysteries. How can mourning, which is an expression of deep sorrow, become a blessing? The answer lies in our memory verse which reveals two types of sorrow: godly sorrow and the sorrow of the world. There are lots of blessings associated with godly sorrow. One of these is that it produces repentance which brings about salvation. Godly sorrow can be experienced as a result...

Being a Christian means taking a stand for Christ. Although undoubtedly difficult, the decision to stand up for Jesus is absolutely necessary, and any serious Christ-follower should make it. Here are some reasons why taking a stand for our Saviour is definitely hard, but absolutely necessary. 1. Amidst challenges, only those who stand strong for Christ till the end can make it Yes, our salvation has been paid for in hot blood on the cross of Calvary, but the people who will enter...

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the Light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” John 8:12 If you wanted to get rid of darkness in a room, how would you do it? Would you curse the darkness? Take a broomstick and try to beat the darkness out? Grab a shovel and shovel it out? Or a vacuum cleaner and suck it out? How are you going...

Stand Alone for Truth As a believer, it is likely that some time during your life you will be challenged to stand alone—to be in a situation that forces you to decide if you will obey God or “follow the crowd.” Your decision will either glorify God or give the enemies of God an opportunity to scorn Him. (See II Samuel 12:14.) Your circumstances may involve something as seemingly insignificant as refusing to let your child participate in a school activity, or they...

One doctrine of the world that is gradually creeping into the body of Christ is that which says “If you cannot beat them, join them.”  This doctrine is inconsistent with the values of the kingdom of belong to on multiple fronts. Our lifestyle is characterised by love – God’s kind of love – as stated in 1 Corinthians 13:6,  this kind of love does not rejoice in iniquity. Because the world is full of iniquity and scoffs at righteous living, we...
