    Sustaining in faith – October 2018

    “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.” Hebrews 4:2. Hophni and Phinehas were priests of the Lord, day after day facing people who in absolute faith and thanksgiving offered sacrifices to the Lord. I would assume how their faith would have been strengthened seeing others pray and praise. To add on, these two priests were the sons of a very pious man who ministered sincerely to the Lord. He could not tolerate a woman being drunk and offers his immediate warning, though he later discovers she was…

    For God, with God and of God – September 2018

    “I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.” Ecclesiastes 1:14. ‘Am busy’ or ‘I don’t have time’ has become a cliché these days and majority of the time it’s rightly so or at the least feels so. Because, this devotional’s writer too perceived that way and so wrote this at the last hour. The Preacher in Ecclesiastes, taken aback by man’s never-ending business, laments and pours out his indictment at its unending cycle and meaninglessness. The Preacher though the wisest the world has ever known, is lost for a reason behind all the activities of the Human…

    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 through the sacrificial death of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.…

    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 slow down, we lose our patience. Having all connections set…

    Stay Humble in All Circumstances – June 2018

    “Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips.” Proverbs 27:2. Raising beautiful cut-outs, I remember vividly the enthusiastic shouts “Vote for Dove” while contesting in primary school elections with Dove being my symbol. As a part of the election propaganda, all the contestants were given few minutes to speak, and each of us praised ourselves to glory justifying we are the best. It was and still is a pleasant memory to me. Recently I encountered a few people who would just not stop speaking about themselves. Despite their credentials, hard-work, skills and efforts, the placement of “I” before everything seemed an…

    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 goodness of the Lord, we need a deep understanding of…

    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 there is a life after death which is central to…

    Finding God’s will – March 2018

    “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” Romans 8:35 Christian life is an adventurous journey through mountains and valleys, wilderness and green pastures, and often a delicate balance between moments of doubts and unshakeable faith. As we grow in the Lord and long to listen to Him, we keenly seek to know the will of God in our lives. At the verge of taking any life-changing decisions, be it choosing an academic discipline, career, life-partner, future ventures etc, it becomes crucial for most of us to know if it falls within the will of God. The…

    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 love that flows from his heart. Though we are in…

    Jesus is Our Friend – January 2018

    “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing: but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from my Father I have made known to you.” John 15:15 One of the most commonly asked questions to a little child that has just joined school would be “How many friends have you got?” or “Who are your friends?” etc. As a society, we would love to stay connected and have realized the need to have a support system in a friend right from the very early age. In most of our lives, it is the friend who plays…
