    Do Not Love the World – November 2018

    “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.” 1 John 2:15-17. Though we live in this world, we are not of this world. The Christian life is confined to a unique …

    Communication with God – July 2018

    “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words.” Daniel 10:12. This is an era of extreme advancements in technology, especially in communication. We are always connected with our friends, relatives and colleagues. We convey our messages and also await a confirmation that they have reached the intended recipients. We panic if the communications are not reaching the person at the other end. If there is a fluctuation in the internet connectivity or network …

    Praising God during Tough Times – May 2018

    “I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.” Psalm 34:1. We hear the phrase, “God is good” during sermons, worships, or even during personal conversations. We all know that He is good but we rarely tend to yield ourselves to experience his goodness. We say God is good because we have the essence of salvation within us. This joy of salvation surpasses all our understandings and helps us to place our faith in his goodness. King David says, “O taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8). To taste the …

    Never be worried about Persecution

    Today, churches all around the world commemorate the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ. We know that He spent his last moments in anguish. The hardest part was that He knew everything beforehand. It is not fair comparing our problems with that of the Son of God. However, let us contemplate our stance in our hard situations as such. The Calvary teaches us about the states of mind of an unbeliever and a believer. The Bible talks about two thieves were punished according to the law along with Jesus. Both were hanging near Him but each one’s thinking was completely …

    The Love of Christ – February 2018

    “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” Romans 8:35 The love of Christ is genuine. Whenever this love touches a human heart, the person is completely transformed. Christ’s love is celebrated around the world among born-again Christians for this reason. However, we have to analyze ourselves whether we always truly exhibit the His love. The world is now experiencing chaos and cataclysm. This might be social, political or even naturally occurring. What is the Christian stance in this situation? How should a Christian respond to these? A person who abides in Christ will approach all situations with the …

    “Wherefore I say unto thee, her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much… and he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.” Luke 7:47-50 There is a difference in the understanding of the word Love by a Christian and a non-Christian. We utter the word love many times, but being a believer, we have to ponder whether we actually realize the true essence of love in our daily life. Secondly, for those who are in Christ, faith is another virtue that plays a critical role and again we have to introspect if …

    February 2016

    Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” John 20:15 We would have heard this verse in the Easter season. This question was asked in a critical and a chaotic situation of Christ’s disciples. Everyone seemed to have forgotten the words of faith spoken by their beloved Rabbi. The lady to whom the question was asked was filled with great sorrow and mourning. Indeed a great sorrow that their most Loved One faced such an enormous tribulation before His death. Their Hope was changed in to fear and confusion. I as a believer had forgotten …
