    Thank You Lord

    A month ago, I along with my father engaged ourselves in a task we considered Herculean and kept pending for several weeks. We wanted to segregate all the clothes of my late mother and late grandmother and distribute among the people around us. With utmost care, keeping each person to whom we wanted to give in mind, and the choices they may like, we carefully bundled up the clothes and labelled it. Each of these clothes were precious to us, not because it was made of silk, or any other expensive material but because it belonged to our dear own …

    The resurrected life

    Easter is the day we celebrate every year by wearing new clothes, attending church service, taking part in the communion. Then we get back come back home, feast and proceed with our day to day activities. Have we ever thought what the resurrection of Christ mean to us? Has Christ really risen in our lives? For Christ to arise in our lives, we have to dismantle the old man in us and meet the risen Christ who makes everything new. The resurrection of Jesus brings newness to our lives. His Resurrection is Glorious. Romans 4:25 says, “He was delivered for …

    Our Sin and His Cross

    We often find ourselves yielding into temptation and falling into sin. At times, our falling into sins even makes us doubt our salvation. But we understand the truth that every Christian struggles with sin as long as they are in this world. Paul says in Romans 7:19, “For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing.” But if we all keep struggling with sin, then what is the significance of Jesus dying on the cross? It is clear from this passage that Christians are not …

    The new year goal

    We might be standing in the dawn of a New Year with questions running all over our minds, whether this New Year will bring something good or will it be bad? Will it set the things right or will it make things worse? Am I walking in the right path or do I need a change? Well, flipping through the pages of yesteryears, we might find some pages filled with joy while some with sorrow; some pages of fullness in life while some others of emptiness; some with sense of achievement while some others with sense of rejection and we …

    You shall call His name Jesus

    It is Christmas again and a wonderful time to meditate on the birth of Jesus. Usually, while reading the Bible we skip the chapters and verses that are familiar to us. And I believe that the following verse is also a familiar one: And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). However, I want to bring your attention to the second part of verse 21 – you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins. The name …

    Give thanks

    As Thanksgiving Day of this year beckons, there is no better time to ponder on this word “Thanks”. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” We humans like to hear the word thanks, and it gives such pleasure in our feelings to hear those words. God too loves a thankful heart and there is no doubt about it, to be grateful to Him and also to others. In the above verse in 1 Thessalonians Paul asks us those who are in Christ Jesus to give thanks …

    I am with you always

    The Resurrection of our Lord testifies His power over sin and death. It portrays the hope of eternal life through Him, magnifies his divinity and authority, promotes His Gospel, and clarifies that He is not ordinary. Jesus Said in Matthew 28:20 “ I am with you always, even to the end of the age ”. As believers what does this mean to us? Think about the state of disciples when Jesus was with them, they were fearless, brave, active, assertive and bold. Those were the times when the followers of Jesus Christ were ridiculed, mocked, threatened in the midst of …

    He was ridiculed

    As we remember the sacrifice of Jesus today, this is the right time to meditate on the sufferings and shame He encountered in order to fulfill God’s plan of Salvation. Apart from the physical sufferings He experienced, the mental agony was too severe which is already inherent from His prayer at the Garden of Gethsemane the previous day. Matthew 26:39 says, “He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”” In addition to that, …

    God values our time

    As each year pass by, milestones are reached, goals are set, decisions are made, achievements are celebrated. In modern scale of calculating the performance of a company, the year is divided into four quarters and the performance is calculated in each quarter i.e after every 90 days in a year. The growth of the company is analyzed through that as the old system of doing it once a year doesn’t seem to be effective. It really shows how much the modern system values time. As they say “Time is money”, the competition is higher and so they know the value …
