    Preach the Gospel – December 2018

    “Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” 1 Corinthians 9:16. Last month, many of us would have come across the news of the death of a missionary named John Allen Chau. He was killed by the people of North Sentinelese tribe in the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. The Sentinelese tribe are not wary of the modern civilization and have been living in their own world for centuries. Being a traveller, John Chau was enjoying God’s finest creation called nature and there is no need for him to risk his life. Yet, He chose to put his life …

    3 Steps for Overcoming Sin – August 2018

    “My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” 1 John 2:1. Overcoming sin is the battle faced by all Christians every day. Christians are not immune to sin but that doesn’t give us the license to sin. Romans 6:14 says, “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” Being Christians, we are no longer walk according to the law but by the grace of God poured on to us …

    3 Things The Resurrection Signifies – April 2018

    “He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay” Matthew 28:6 In the history of mankind, many people tried to disprove the fact Jesus resurrected from the dead. Some did this out of selfish ambitions and some out of pure ignorance. Irrespective of all these attempts, the fact Jesus resurrected on the third day is transforming the lives of many even today. The Human mind is limited by the thoughts that life ends once we die. But the Resurrection of Jesus rewrites death as the beginning and assures us that …

    Developing Patience this New Year

    We live in a world where we have no time to wait for anything. From fast food restaurants to Express trains, we want everything to happen immediately. The term patience has lost its place in our lives when things don’t happen as we expect. The definition of patience is “the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.” Sometimes we do wait for things to happen but without being truly patient. We fail to realise that when we don’t have the patience to wait, we won’t get the best God wants to offer us. …

    “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.” 1 Corinthians 15:19 Lately, I have been frequently hearing Sermons centered on this verse. It is also one of my favourite verses as it reaffirms the answer to the most important question of humanity, “Why do I live?” Even after being saved, many a time we live our lives in such a way as though we belong to the world. Paul says in 2 Corinthians 4:18, “While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which …

    “Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” Acts 21:13 It takes great courage to say that I am ready to die. Paul wasn’t sure what would happen to him if he goes to Jerusalem. He could have easily averted from his journey plan. Since he was courageous in Christ, he made such a bold statement of faith. Despite of the situation he was in, Paul clung to what he preached. That’s why …

    “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8 Gospel is not a man-made message but God’s plan of salvation revealed through His Son Jesus Christ. It is clear from this passage that the perversion of the Gospel is not something new. It was present even during Paul’s time. The Galatians have been misled by some false gospel and Paul wanted to ensure that they return to the true Gospel that they had first accepted. The gravity of the situation is …

    His death is relevant to all

    It’s again the time of the year, when we remember the sufferings and death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Even today, it makes us wonder how someone could die for the ungodly and unrighteous ones like us. Paul also pondered on the same in Romans 5:7, “For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” The difference lies in the fact that the love of God is …

    Zeal for God

    We might have lot of plans for this New Year. Plans to accomplish something at work, plans to buy something new and so on. But do we have plans for our spiritual growth? Is this New Year going to be a year of transformation in our spiritual growth or it is going to be just another year? In order to grow spiritually in this new year, we need to recall our year past and ask ourselves, “Did we do things that pleased God or did we indulge ourselves in things that hurt Him?”, “Did we sit in His presence every …

    The greatest miracle

    Christmas is the greatest miracle ever happened on earth. Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world was born in a small town called Bethlehem. Having realized this, wise men from east came to see Jesus. Matthew 2:1 says, “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem.” The Bible doesn’t say exactly how these wise men came to know about the birth of Jesus. It really surprises us every time when we think how someone living in some other part of the world …
