Living life in the presence, under the authority, and for the glory of God


"In [Jesus] all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, 
whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him... 
God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 
and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, 
by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross."
 Colossians 1:16, 19-20

"Yesterday I (together with Roseta Tulia) had an opportunity to Skype with Darrow Miller and Shawn Carson . It was an opportunity to ask questions about what we've been learning in Coram Deo. I am learning that God's Story begins in Genesis 1(and not Genesis 3) and ends in Revelation 22. It starts off in Genesis with a perfect earth and ends in Revelation with a New Jerusalem. The reality though is that we are living in a fallen world. A world full of pain and misery. Yet because of Jesus, there is Hope. I am called to be His ambassador. To represent His Kingdom on earth. To go out in His authority and make disciples of all nations. To represent His Culture on earth. I have also learnt that the Church is the window through which the broken world can see God's perfect will in all the four areas of our lives: spiritual, physical, social and wisdom."

"To all those going through our online course. THIS video is a great explanation of what it means to have a true paradigm shift. Obtaining a Biblical Worldview can happen, but it won't happen SOLELY through one experience. You have to make it your ambition and devote time and attention to it. God is with you and for you. Keep pressing in!!!"

""Each of us has a mission in life. Jesus prays to his Father for his followers, saying: "As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world" (John 17:18). We seldom realise fully that we are sent to fulfill God-given tasks. We act as if we have to choose how, where, and with whom to live. We act as if we were simply plopped down in creation and have to decide how to entertain ourselves until we die. But we were sent into the world by God, just as Jesus was. Once we start living our lives with that conviction, we will soon know what we were sent to do." -Henri Nouwen"
