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

"I am a teacher and besides teaching I also work with an organized group"discipline of love" During my CORAMDEO COURSE, we as a group drew an action plan for a school clean up project at the end of the term. I let students carry out task allocation and team leadership. We worked in teams of four and cleaned up different school sections. Some cleaned, toilets that students detest washing, some classes and veranda, and some cleaned up the school compound. The other students were surprised why their teacher could go as low us cleaning up at school. All this taught me one thing:The highest level of leadership is;servant hood."

""How does the Spirit of God manifest itself through us? Often we think that to witness means to speak up in defense of God. This idea can make us very self-conscious. We wonder where and how we can make God the topic of our conversations and how to convince our families, friends, neighbors, and colleagues of God's presence in their lives. But this explicit missionary endeavour often comes from an insecure heart and, therefore, easily creates divisions. The way God's Spirit manifests itself most convincingly is through its fruits: "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness, gentleness and self-control" (Galatians 5:22). These fruits speak for themselves. It is therefore always better to raise the question "How can I grow in the Spirit?" than the question "How can I make others believe in the Spirit?" - Henri Nouwen"
