Ne t’arrête pas en chemin

Ne t’arrête pas en chemin

La vie de disciple n’est pas un long fleuve tranquille, c’est une véritable vie d’aventures et de défis. Les épreuves font partis intégrantes du chemin que Christ a prévu pour nous et Il nous a prévenu de cela (cf. Matthieu 10:16). Et ce verset nous donne une promesse extraordinaire concernant les pressions, tensions et autres épreuves que nous pourrions rencontrer. Et pour bien comprendre cela, il est nécessaire de connaître la signification du mot “Baka”. Il s’agit de la vallée des larmes....

Accorde-toi avec Dieu

Accorde-toi avec Dieu

Avoir la paix et ce qui est bon, voilà quelque chose que nous désirons tous. C’est l’aspiration du coeur de chaque être humain et c’est normal, car c’est pour cela que nous avons été créés… C’est le désir et le projet de Dieu de nous bénir et nous combler. Néanmoins trop souvent nous ne vivons pas à la mesure de ce qui brûle dans notre coeur et celui du Seigneur. Et pourtant c’est simple - car avec Dieu c’est toujours simple, ce qui ne veut pas dire facile - il suffit de s’accorder avec...

Ne démissionne pas, fais la différence

Ne démissionne pas, fais la différence

C’est complètement fou et irrationnel ce qui se passe ici.. Il y avait du temps du prophète Elisée une ville qui aurait pu être agréable à vivre si sa source d’eau ne produisait pas la stérilité et la mort. Il aurait pu être tentant pour les habitants de jeter l’éponge et de déménager dans un autre lieu plus favorable. Cependant ils ont préféré rester et demander à Dieu de faire un miracle. Dans nos vies il y a parfois des situations où tout semble inutile, les circonstances sont difficiles et...

Ne retourne pas en arrière …

Ne retourne pas en arrière …

Lorsque les choses changent, qu’il y a des transitions, que cela ne va pas comme nous le voulons il semble si facile de revenir en arrière aux choses anciennes. C’est exactement ce qui se passe ici. Lorsque Pierre dit “je vais pêcher”, il revient à ses anciennes occupations, ce qu’il faisait avant de rencontrer Jésus. Comme si ces trois années passées avec Lui étaient une sorte de parenthèse dans sa vie. Oui Jésus est ressuscité, Il apparaît régulièrement cependant les choses ne sont plus...

La multiplication est le fruit de l’intimité

La multiplication est le fruit de l’intimité

Vivre la multiplication c’est la norme du Royaume et c’est pour cela que nous avons été créés… Dieu a mis dans tout ce qui est vivant la semence pour la multiplication, on voit cela dès la Création (cf. Genèse 1:12,22). Dans ce passage de Jean, Jésus décrit cela par le fait de porter du fruit, en affirmant que nous sommes appelés à porter beaucoup de fruit (cf. Jean 15:8). Lorsqu’on parle de fruit ici, il ne s’agit pas du fruit de l’Esprit (cf. Galates 5:22) mais de disciples. Un pommier donne...

Le baptême, votre consécration au ministère

Le baptême, votre consécration au ministère

Ces paroles de Christ constituent Son ordre de mission pour tous Ses disciples et cela jusqu’à Son retour. Pendant environ trois ans, Jésus a été avec Ses disciples, ils ont vécu ensemble et maintenant il y a un passage de relais. Alors qu’Il s’en va vers le Père, Jésus transmet la responsabilité de faire des disciples à ceux qu’Il a formé. C’est à eux de se mettre en mouvement et Marc 16:20 nous révèle que Jésus a travaillé avec eux alors qu’ils se sont mis en action. Lorsqu’on reçoit un...

Mettre notre salut en action…

Putting our salvation into action ...

C’est là l’exhortation de Paul au verset précédent et c’est donc ce que nous sommes appelés à vivre. Prenons donc un moment pour découvrir ensemble ce que cela implique pour notre vie et comment faire de cela une réalité… La première des choses est de venir confronter une fausse croyance selon laquelle il y a les choses spirituelles et les autres. Lorsqu’on est disciple de Christ tout est spirituel. Car Dieu est avec nous dans tout ce que nous faisons. Il est Celui qui opère en nous le vouloir...

Ecouter, c’est obéir !

Listening is obeying!

God loves us and He wants to bless us. It is enough to read the first fourteen verses of this chapter 28 of Deuteronomy to discover His will for His people and that even before the coming of Christ. He is still the same, His willingness to bless us has not changed and through the death and resurrection of Christ, He has done everything to make us live in His blessing. Ephesians 1: 3 states that in Christ we are blessed with all spiritual blessings and in Colossians 2:10 ...

Dieu vient à ta rencontre

God comes to meet you

When I was a child, while I was on vacation with my grandparents, I did something stupid… My reaction was to do my best to hide things and hide myself behind a mask of all is well… My big -mother knowing what had happened approached me, not to scold me but to show me her love. This experience marked me and gave me a real lesson in life, namely, it is useless to want to hide our mistakes. However, I soon noticed that this ...

L’amour plus fort que le jugement

Love stronger than judgment

God is good and He is always good! This is not an easy phrase or statement. This is the truth, for goodness is part of the very nature of God. This implies that the goodness of God is not conditioned by our actions, our prayer life, or anything else. God is always good, His goodness is renewed day after day (cf. Lamentations 3:23) and that for all, whether we are righteous or unjust (cf. Matthew 5:45). The fact that we're alive, that ...

Dieu désire te révéler son secret

God wants to reveal his secret to you

From the beginning of Creation, we discover that God chose to make Man his partner for His work (cf. Genesis 2: 19-20) and that has not changed… God created you. so that you can be partners with Him for His Kingdom. And the basis of all partnership and dialogue, so God desires to speak to you so that you know His will… It is simple, because God does not speak in coded or hidden language, He speaks in a clear way so that we can. understand ... The challenge is often our ...

La dépendance est l’assurance du succès

Dependence is the guarantee of success

When we talk about dependence, it is generally something negative that we try to avoid… We value the fact of being independent, of not having to depend on someone or something. Being independent is also often considered a success and a proof of maturity ... Here Jesus will say exactly the opposite, the maturity of a disciple is to recognize and live in absolute dependence on the Father. Jesus will affirm it again in John 15: 5 when He says that ...

Donner selon ce que j’ai ou selon ma foi !

Give according to what I have or according to my faith!

This is certainly one of the greatest offering to be found in the Bible. One may be astonished by what Solomon offered on the day of the dedication of the Temple (cf. 1 Kings 8:63) or by other extravagant offerings, however all are inferior to what this widow put. Because the value of the offering is not in what is given but in the sacrifice which is made and the act of faith. So God never considers what we give, but the attitude of our heart when we ...

Tu es libre !

You are free !

The cross is empty… Christ was crucified, He died, He was laid in the tomb, but on the third day He rose again and now He reigns in the heavens with power and authority. His Name is above any other name. By dying on the cross, Jesus became sin in our place, He took upon Himself the curse and the punishment that was reserved for us. When we approach Him by acknowledging our faults and failings to ask Him for forgiveness and choosing to ...

Aimer c’est si simple et pourtant tellement difficile

To love is so simple and yet so difficult

Have you ever noticed that the life of a disciple is so simple, you just have to obey God and His Word… God chose it to be simple so that it is accessible to all, it is not a question of intelligence, ability or whatever, it's just a matter of decision: to obey. And yet it is often so difficult, because it costs and involves radical changes in the way of life. And the command of Jesus above which was already in the Old ...

C’est toi qui détermine la mesure de ton miracle

It is you who determines the extent of your miracle

The miracle is the natural one of God, which implies that it is also that of His children… God loves to perform miracles and He wishes to perform them in your daily life. What is extraordinary is that He chose to make you a partner in His miracles. It is so bad that you determine the extent of your miracle… You want to live a miracle life, so how to act intentionally… Praying for miracles is a good start, however it is not enough, we must. ..

Ne reste pas sur tes acquis

Do not stay on your achievements

There is so much more to each of our lives and we are called to learn and grow until our last breath on this earth. If we are not vigilant, we could easily get stuck on what we have learned by contenting ourselves with living on these bases ... Because growing up requires effort, it forces us to get out of our comfort zone and forces us to know how to unlearn. One of the foundations of learning is knowing how to unlearn what we already know or ...

Lâche prise …

Let go …

The life of a disciple is rich in challenges and trials, that is normal… It is even a promise that Jesus made to us, when He said that as He was persecuted, we will be persecuted (cf. John 15:20 ). Paul says the same thing in 2 Timothy 3:12 and James even goes so far as to invite us to consider the trials we face as a matter of complete joy (cf. James 1: 2). When we understand this, it will do two things. First of all, we're going to stop wanting to avoid them, ...

Besoin de repos ?

Need some rest ?

This invitation from Jesus is still so relevant to us today… Rest is something we all need and which is essential to our balance. And yet it sometimes seems like a real struggle to know how to respond to this invitation from Christ. It is normal that we need rest on a regular basis because we were created in the image of God and God rested from the beginning of Creation (cf. Genesis 2: 2). God created everything, the sun, ...

Et si c’était Dieu ?

What if it was God?

Have you ever found yourself in a difficult situation, where you have to face pressures and trials that seem to overwhelm you? Certainly yes and if not, rest assured, it will come ... It is very likely that you have wondered what could have happened to make these things happen to you ... If you had made a mistake or if it was an attack by the enemy, or whatever other reason ... I would like to ask you the question and if it was God who ...

La victoire n’est pas une option

Victory is not an option

You have certainly noticed that the Christian life is not a long calm river, on the contrary it is a life of adventures, challenges and fights ... It is normal and we must know how to take advantage of it, because when we are in eternity with God, these things will no longer exist. To be a disciple of Christ and not to have a fight is not possible, because when we met Jesus and decided to follow Him, we left the kingdom of darkness to enter the Kingdom of Christ (cf.

Donne le meilleur

Give the best

I don't know about you, but for years I read this verse with enthusiasm saying to myself: “wow, this is great, for the first time the Church is becoming intentional in sending people to fulfill Its Mission and to plant churches". However, I missed the implication as I was already watching the outcome to come, Paul's missionary journeys, the nations impacted, churches planted, and lives saved. Often it is the same in our lives, we fix our ...

Se battre pour Son héritage

Fighting for His Legacy

When we speak of inheritance it means to receive something for which we did not work and of which we did nothing to deserve it… It also implies that someone else paid for it and that this person died for bequeath us his legacy. The inheritance Paul is talking about in this verse is the one that Christ bequeathed to us, it is His inheritance… Christ died so that we could be reconciled to the Father and receive life in abundance. We did nothing to deserve ...

Ma vision, sa vision ou Sa vision ?

My vision, his vision or his vision?

When I was younger, I often heard that we had to serve someone else's vision first before God could give us a vision. The examples given were generally those of Joshua who served Moses or Elisha with Elijah. Which implied a dimension of hierarchy, position and promotion… Things which have no place in the Kingdom of God and in the Church. In fact, Joshua never served the vision of Moses, just like Elisha didn't with Elijah ... They ...

Nos différences font la différence !

Our differences make the difference!

This verse introduces us to two important principles that characterized the Church in Her beginnings. It is not a question of wanting to be nostalgic by wanting to return to the first Church, because it is not possible and it would be false ... The book of Acts does not present us with a model to follow but tells us the story of the first years of the Church. These biblical principles are fundamental, because they are applicable in all contexts and all times, always producing a result ...

Vaincre l’inquiétude

Conquer worry

Have you ever noticed that you never learned to worry? Unfortunately, it is something easy and natural that destroys the life of the person who is worried and those around him. It is, however, something that has no place in the life of a follower of Christ. So let's take a moment to see how to overcome worry and be free from it. Because God's plan for you is that you don't worry about anything (cf. Matthew 6: 24-34) and that on the contrary ...

Aimer sans poser de question

Love without asking a question

This story is certainly the one that best reveals the heart of the Father, it is simply extraordinary and I encourage you to take a moment to read it in full in Luke 15: 11-32. Jesus reveals here wonderful aspects of the heart of God for us who are His children. This son behaved in a terrible way by completely rejecting his father and his family to go and live his life according to his desires and his plans. Which led him inexorably to hit rock bottom ...

Il n’est pas bon d’être seul(e)

It's not good to be alone

It is not good that man is alone… These words coming from God denote with what precedes where He never stopped saying that it was good and very good in speaking of His Creation. This reveals an important aspect for our lives, because in reality man was not alone, God was present. However, there remained a solitude in the heart of man, that of having a vis-à-vis that only another human being could provide. This observation directly follows the order of mission that God gave to ...

Etre en synergie avec Dieu …

To be in synergy with God ...

You are a worker with God! This is what Paul declares, what an extraordinary privilege to be able to be a partner with the Creator of the whole universe… Which means that God has chosen you to build with Him. And the first of the important things is to understand that it is with Him and not for Him. Likewise, we live with Jesus and not for Jesus. It is because you are with Him that you can do with Him. It is essential to be able to align your life with this reality because often ...

La puissance de l’affirmation.

The power of affirmation.

It is not trivial that these Words of the Father arrive at this time, when Jesus will start His earthly ministry which will end some three years later with the cross. Jesus was fully aware of who He was, at the age of 12 already He was going to tell His parents: “Did you not know that I must take care of my Father's business?” (cf. Luke 2:49). However, the Father needed to affirm His identity and His love to Jesus in a special way. For the ministry is ...

Et si la vie était un jeu ?

What if life was a game?

A few years ago I found myself in one of the most challenging seasons of my life… I had to face a lot of work as well as many challenges and yet there was inside me a real joy. If the circumstances were difficult, however, I felt like I was in a game in which I found great pleasure. It was there that I discovered the true meaning of the above verse. Life is not a game, however we ...

Rejette le mensonge.

Reject the lie.

Imagine the scene… A few moments ago, Jesus is going to declare that Peter is happy because he has a revelation that comes from heaven (cf. Matthew 16:17) and now, Jesus is going to say that Peter's words come from satan… Wow, what a change and what a radicality in the words of Christ to reject the lie which came from the mouth of Peter. It is this same radicalism that we must have with regard to the lie. And what allows Jesus to react that way is love ... love ...

Ne te laisse pas mettre dans l’esclavage

Don't let yourself be put in bondage

Last March when the covid crisis started, one of the first thoughts that came to me was: "like in Joseph's time, the world is going to be put into slavery". And this is what is happening, the world is caught in the bondage of fear ... These words of the apostle Paul are important for us today ... You are no longer a slave, it is a reality in Christ then do not let yourself be enslaved by anything! Slavery is the loss of freedom, it is acting under duress and ...

Etre chrétien, plus qu’un titre !

To be a Christian, more than a title!

A few years ago we had received a car for the church and we hastened to have it stamped with the name, address and website of the church. I quickly noticed that when I was using it my driving was different than usual. I was careful to obey all traffic rules, I anticipated things and let all pedestrians pass with a big smile. Many of the people who used it made the same remark to me ... All of this ...

Se lever pour entrer dans Son appel !

Get up to enter into His call!

Imagine, you arrive in the sky, you are introduced (e) in a projection room. After you sit down in a comfortable chair with your favorite drink and some snacks, a movie will start. From the first seconds you are seized by these images of an extraordinary life, with trials, difficulties, joys, miracles, God at work, etc ... This until the letters “END ”Appear on the screen. It is then that you realize that you did not take advantage of what ...

La réussite ne dépend pas des circonstances, c’est une question d’attitude.

Success does not depend on circumstances, it is a question of attitude.

To be meaningful in life and to be successful is something that every human being aspires to. For we were created in the image of God, with a unique destiny (cf. Genesis 9: 7 and Ephesians 2:10). To be successful is therefore simply to accomplish what we have been fashioned by God to do. Which means that it has nothing to do with our life circumstances and our surroundings, on the contrary! In the above verse it is about Nehemiah, to put the context the latter is exiled in a ...

N’attends pas que demain soit meilleur… Attends-toi à Dieu !

Don't wait until tomorrow is better… Wait on God!

When times are difficult, people often say that tomorrow will be better… A bit like a fate, where we endure the present in the hope that better days will arrive. It sounds reassuring and yet it is so empty, without any basis. This year which is coming to an end has certainly brought many challenges, trials and at the same time so many good things. Wanting to believe that next year will be easier is certainly what we would like and ...

L’amour ne compte pas

Love doesn't matter

I still remember the first Christmas present I gave to my beloved when it had only been a few weeks since we were together. Nothing was too good for her, that's why my choice fell on a beautiful gold bracelet. I did not consider the price or the implication on my budget, I wanted to please him and for that no sacrifice was too great. Because when you love you don't count and I'm sure you've already experienced this. In this...

Ton succès, c’est leur réussite …

Your success is their success ...

The search for success is something natural in the life of each of us and it is normal because God created us for it. However, it is important to know how to define what success is in order to ensure that it is achieved. The best definition of success seems to me to be simply being able to accomplish what God created us for (cf. Ephesians 2.10) in order to one day hear His words “well, good and faithful servant you have been faithful in few things, I t 'will establish on ...

A la recherche de trésors …

In search of treasures ...

In the various facts of the information, we are regularly told about people who have discovered treasures, such as antique objects, gold, ancient art objects, etc ... A few years ago with Rachel we bought an old house to renovate, everything had to be redone, so we destroyed everything to keep only the walls. We also dug the garden to make the terrace and various installations. I must confess to you that deep down I was hoping ...

Ce que tu sais détermine ce que tu fais…

What you know determines what you do ...

Our knowledge will determine our way of living and acting ... So for example, it is because you know that water cannot support your weight that you do not try to walk on water. This seems obvious to you, and yet it is because Peter knew that Jesus' words are a solid foundation that he got out of the boat to meet Jesus (cf. Matthew 14: 28-29). His knowledge determined his action which, however, seemed completely insane ... Too often we ...

Une seule Parole fait la différence !

One Word Makes the Difference!

If life is simple, this does not exclude that we regularly have to face storms. You know those moments when everything seems to collapse, our assurances and our securities disappear, the prospect of the future seems completely blocked and where we feel helpless ... Perhaps you are today in this situation where for you the world seems to be falling apart, where you can't see the end of the tunnel ... I have good news, one Word is enough to make a difference and all ...

La connaissance produit la provision.

Knowledge produces provision.

To ask and to receive here is the promise that Jesus makes to us here… I do not know what is your experience in prayer, on the other hand what I do know is that the will of Christ is to grant us by giving us what we ask . So let's never let our experience become our standard, let's always stay in the faith that His truth becomes our reality! To better understand this verse, it is important to situate the context in which Jesus is speaking. He's with His disciples ...

Un besoin ? C’est déjà pourvu !

A need ? It is already provided!

What an extraordinary promise we have in this verse… And you can try to turn things around in all directions, when the Bible speaks of “all your needs” it means “all” and that without any exception… If you look in the Greek (the language in which the New Testament was written) you will find that all means all - without any exceptions ... Whether it is our physical, material, emotional, psychological, etc. needs, we have the promise that God will provide for everything. ..

Tu as été créé(e) pour un temps tel que celui-ci !

You were created for such a time as this!

When the trial and the pressure are there, it is possible to adopt different attitudes, such as withdrawal, lament, self-pity, fear, etc ... All these ways of reacting will not produce anything positive and will not help. no change. On the other hand, it is also possible to position oneself by seeing the opportunities, a better future and the fact that we were created for a time like this… Which, if that does not change the circumstances immediately, it does. ...
