    You Cannot Serve God And Money

    “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21 We run all through our lives to gather money, name and fame that belongs to the world. We fail to recognise that they all will cease to exist one day. At times, they cease even as we watch them happening in front of our eyes. That is why Jesus tells us not to gather treasures for ourselves on earth. He has a better place for us where we will live forever with Him and that is where we need to store up our treasures. These heavenly treasures …

    Your Sorrow Will Turn Into Joy

    “You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy.” John 16:20 What is sorrow? It is a grief, a sadness about a misfortune experienced or which is ongoing. Sorrow has one more contextual meaning that denotes a disappointed state of mind. Everyone who is unhappy might not be sorrowful, but one who regrets because of a disappointment is in sorrow. The Bible says in Psalm 126:5, “Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!” This is a promise that is given to all who believe in the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Now, …

    Fight The Battle

    “No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.” 2 Timothy 2:4 Surprises are always special and fill us with joy. Surprise visits by someone whom we miss dearly are icing on the cake. Videos of soldiers heading back home to meet their family, tiny little babies crawling fast to their military parents overloads us with such emotions of joy and happiness even if we are complete strangers and mere spectators to them. It is quite usual that we constantly think about our family consciously or unconsciously in our daily routine. …

    You Are Never Alone

    “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:18 Jacob cheated on his brother Esau and fooled his father Isaac to get the blessings of the first-born. He ran away from his family and was travelling alone. But God was still with Jacob and in a dream, God showed Jacob a ladder from heaven with angels ascending and descending. And God said to him, “Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go..” (Genesis 28:15). Yes, Jacob sinned against God and was running away from his family. But our God is still …

    The Hour Has Come

    “Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.” Romans 13:11 When a New year ticks in, most of us stay awake till midnight to welcome it. We try our best to hold off our sleep in order to get a glimpse of that golden moment. As professing Christians, is it not even more important to wake up from our sinful life and clothe ourselves with Christ? As we enter a New year, is it not true that our final …

    Preach the Gospel

    “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 …

    Do Not Love the World

    “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 …

    Sustaining in Faith

    “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 …

    For God, with God and of God

    “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 …

    3 Steps for Overcoming Sin

    “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 …
