    A call to sacrifice

    Good Friday is a time to remember the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the sacrifice He made for us in the cross of Calvary to save us from our sins. Sacrifice is the foundation in which Christian faith stands and without sacrifice there is no meaning to our faith. Jesus Christ lived as that sacrifice and died as the same. It is for the first time, the cross became the symbol of glory, pain became worthy, suffering became meaningful and death became life. I honestly believe that this is also a time to remember the numerous martyrs, …

    God of restoration

    In the Bible, Job is the one who comes to our mind when we hear the word “Suffering”. The other word that keeps reminding of him is “Twice”. If we look at the life of this lovely man of God, it was full of struggle, pain and misery. But let us not forget his battle of Faith. All these things happened to a man whom God himself testifies as “A blameless and upright man” in Job 1:8. His Faith in God was thoroughly tested through the disease Satan brought on him and the losses he faced in his family and …

    As the new year dawns

    As the New Year dawns, we might be having several expectations within us. Some of us expect to have some changes in our lives. Some of us expect certain things to happen at least this year. Some of us expect a turning point in our lives. But, are we just trusting on ourselves to receive the things that we expect? Or are we willingly putting our trust in the One who created us? David says in Psalm 20:7, “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.”Does that mean David …

    The Christmas faith

    A sudden presence of the Angel Gabriel is not something regular or normal for a young virgin of Nazareth. It’s an unusual happening with utmost importance. The angel came with a very important message from God to young Mary, that a child would be born of her womb and He would be called the, “Son of The Highest” and His name would be JESUS. The response from Mary to Gabriel was an instant question. She replied “How can this be, I have not known any man?” This is how the first Christmas message was received. It was received with a …

    When God ran

    When Archimedes discovered the law of displacement, history says “HE RAN”. In ancient Greece when the city of Athens was about to be attacked, a brave soldier ran till his death to communicate the upcoming disaster. Likewise history has many incidents where people ran; not all who ran were remembered, but the runs that really mattered were etched into the timeless memory of life. But there was an amazing run that was almost forgotten by the human race; the greatest ever run became so insignificant in time. The running that happened for each and every person of this world became …

    Something seems to be missing

    We may attend church regularly and involve ourselves in all kinds of church activities, but is there something seems to be missing within us? Do we have a good relationship with God? Are we listening to his instructions? Do we feel his love? Or are we feeling empty? The fact is, in all these matters, our relationship with God is the key. A relationship is defined as “the state of being connected or related.” When we are connected with God, the Spirit of God alerts us when we hurt someone. Our hearts grief when He grieves. When we pray God …

    The traffic signs of life

    Sin is equivalent to the laws we have studied in physics. Sin can be thought of as Newton’s third law of motion.  Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Every sin that I love to practice today has a reciprocating effect in the spiritual realm tomorrow. Every sin is like a giant that the Israelites saw on their way to the Promised Land.  The more we feed those giants today, the more difficult a task it will be to kill those same giants tomorrow. The Bible says in Galatians 6:8, “For he who sows to his flesh will of …

    Love and grace

    John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” God loves us and so He sent Jesus for paying the penalty of our sins. Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.” We are saved because of His grace and not through our works. The Bible makes it clear that because of His love and by His grace we are saved. Love and grace plays an …

    I am not insignificant

    God’s ways are always mysterious and His choices are beyond our wildest imagination. Time and time again, He has stamped His authority in being uniquely different from what we usually presume. That is why He says, “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways”. The most insignificant thing in our eyes can be of great significance to Him. Isn’t He the same God who made the manger and the cross look significant!!! We know the story of King David, when he was anointed by Prophet Samuel as the King of Israel, he was rearing his father’s …

    The empty tomb

    “He is not here For He is risen as he said.” Matthew 28:6 says that an angel was testifying these words to the women who came to see the body of Jesus. He is risen from the dead and is not here. Let us not search for our King anymore in the tomb. For the tomb is already empty. Death could not hold our King. Hallelujah! God’s purpose of sending His Only begotten Son Jesus was fullfilled when He cried out from the cross saying “It is finished”  as mentioned in  John 19:30. The restoration of mankind was completed and …
