You can only be a True Disciple of Christ if you are enlightened. Only when we embraces the notion that we are One Body with God that we will be able to fully experience the goodness of God’s promises. As ambassadors of God, we are literally God incarnate walking the earth. We cannot be God incarnate when we do not embrace the fact that we are One with Him. So the question is this — are we enlightened?
As the second wave of positive psychology move towards adopting a more holistic approach in their view towards psychology, the Christian Church should also relook at the doctrine of salvation and the role sin plays within it. Recognising the sinful nature of humanity may be the key to bringing people to the Truth and setting people free with it.
What is salvation? What do we know about salvation? Is salvation all about Jesus and resurrection and love? Or is there something more? Is there something about God’s plans that we are unsure of? Are we boxing God up with our limited belief?

Two laws govern the universe. They are the yin and yang of love. You either love God and others as yourself, or you love only yourself. The choice determines where you will end up in eternity. The choice is yours.
Heaven and hell is the same place. It is a place where God reigns forever. Its dwellers will either experience eternal joy or eternal torture. And it all is completely up to their individual decision.
Jesus has a half-brother. A brother we know little about. They both share the same name, share the same task, walked on the earth, interacted with humanity, and acted the way they did out of love. This is their story.
We are not called to face our struggles and addictions alone. We will only be truly set free in the realm of the Spirit. And if the Son sets us free, we are truly free indeed.
The universe was created just to show us how great God’s love is for us.
Have we been focusing our ministries on works rather than faith? Have we forgotten what it meant to walk by faith and not by sight? This new year, let us re-evaluate our faith and realign our lives with the Giver of Life.
