    “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” 1 John 4:18 The world sees Christ in many forms – a Good moral teacher, a Good man whose life was cut short terribly, a Saint, a Messenger from God, a Prophet and so on. But the Truth is that Christ is the Son of God who came down to earth, lived and died for us. That’s how we all believed and were saved by His Grace through faith. But after knowing Him as our Lord and Saviour, as time goes on how do we perceive Christ on …

    “So they set out from the mountain of the Lord and traveled for three days. The ark of the covenant of the Lord went before them during those three days to find them a place to rest”. Numbers 10:33 The Israelites were delivered from their bondage in Egypt by the mighty hand of God and were led by God’s servant Moses to the Promised Land. God had promised His people that He is taking them to a land that flows with milk and honey. On the course, God renewed His covenant with His people, gave them Laws and instructions for …

    “My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast! I will sing and make melody!” Psalm 57:7 “Jallikattu” is the word that is going viral over the past few days and for the first time after India became independent a large mass of Tamilians has come together protesting to retain their cultural identity. This time the protest was initiated in a different, non-violent and persistent way marking the beginning of a revolution. Attention was diverted towards the student community and the common people instead of politicians and celebrities. The entire world looked up to this protest as an example. …

    “Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the Lord will do great things.” Joel 2:21 When we turn back and see what happened last year, there could be instances where we would have faced disappointments, frustrations, anguish and fears. We often felt discouraged when things didn’t go the way we expected. We questioned God as, “why such things happen to me?”, “Why should I live with this pain?” and so on. In times of distress, we didn’t take our burdens to the Lord in prayer and so went astray and sinned against Him. But we failed to realise …

    “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 …

    “When I am afraid I will put my trust in You.” Psalm 56:3 Fear is common among both humans and animals. It’s one of the weapons that our enemy uses to make us stumble; stop us in our tracks from going forward in our walk with God. Fear is so prevalent in the world that they are all classified into different names that end with the term “Phobia”. I should accept here that I do have a fear of heights (Acrophobia) and weirdly about birds (Ornithophobia). You may wonder what, but I don’t like birds and their feathers, they seem …

    “But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14 Paul writes this letter to the church in Philippi from the prison in Rome. The importance of this letter becomes further magnified as he writes from prison as well as in his old age. Paul’s ministry was characterized by his faith, passion, courage, intellect and most of all his determination. He was called by God to preach the Gospel to the gentiles and …

    “I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are on the ground, by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and have given it to whom it seemed proper to Me.” Jeremiah 27:5 Have you ever felt to be a fish out of water and wondered if you are in the right place amidst the right people? There are a lot of records in the Bible where people have been placed in seemingly inappropriate places and amidst inappropriate persons. Is Lion’s den the place for Daniel or the consuming fire for his friends? Did Joseph deserve …

    “For He is our Friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24 As we draw near to the first Sunday of August, which the World observes as Friendship day, I would also want us all to see ‘What a Friend we have in Jesus’. I used to write one-liners on social and personal issues and to me – A Friend is Free till the End. The worldly friends that we talk about and the way they behave is little different from what our God tells the kind of friends He treats us to be. We so easily address a …

    “It is good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees.” Psalm 119:71 We might face afflictions and hard times in life. The afflictions may be different for different people, but everyone goes through it. God will teach us something through these hard times, if we are willing to obey to His voice. The people of Israel didn’t learn God’s faithfulness when they were fine, but when they were struggling. They learned to trust God through that struggle. Job too understood God and His ways better in His afflictions. We can see that especially in chapter …
