    The Blessings of Obedience

    Everything under heaven is a blessing, and a heart to enjoy it, take possession of it, and to benefit from it is experiencing this blessing in its fullest form. Blessing is defined as God’s favour and protection. In some dictionaries, it is referred as a request by someone to God to take care of a particular person, and it is something that makes a person extremely happy. We might find people having different desires and longings. For some it might be a new home, a promotion, a school or college admission, adding new members to a family, etc, for some …

    3 Things Christmas Signifies

    Though we are running after our busy routines,  we were often reminded of the Christmas season over the past few weeks.  Ever since our childhood or from when we became thoughtful about this season we might have Christmas picture in our minds.   When we contemplate through the below verse, we can find a distinctive insight of God’s magnanimity. “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” (Luke 2:13;14) These verses were voiced out by an angel of God, to the shepherds who were watching over their flocks at night.  This good news about the birth …

    God’s Perfect Christmas Gift

    Christmas season is usually attributed as the season of joy, giving, family time and much more. But what makes it different from other seasons or festivities is the very reason behind it.  God had to sacrifice His only Son so that you and I can enjoy an unbroken relationship with Him. Nevertheless, we humans have a free will to accept Jesus – God’s perfect Christmas gift, as our Savior and Lord.  The Bible says, “He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and …

    Alive In The Risen Christ

    Forty days of preparation, self-denial, special church services, prayer fellowships, Bible meditations, well-decorated churches, early morning church gatherings, festivities and feasting with families – Yes, that’s our Easter! Probably we can add Easter eggs, Easter bunnies, Easter markets and Easter Monday holidays to the list even if Good Friday is not considered as a global holiday. This is the annual time for us to remember, announce and celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. Though year after year, it helps shift focus from a busy routine to give on an average extra five percentage of our time to God, it …

    Christ Died and Brought Us Life

    The very first verse that God spoke about Jesus Christ was about His cross (Refer Genesis 3:15). It’s that Christ would crush the devil’s head and the devil would bruise Christ’s heel, which was symbolic of the cross, the kind of death He is going to suffer all because of Man’s sin. That was the first promise after man’s fall. What a peculiar way to introduce Christ to mankind in words. Eve ate the forbidden fruit and blamed the serpent. Adam was clever to blame both Eve and God at the same time (Refer Genesis 3:12,13). Both went into a …

    Forget Not All His Benefits

    Almost all of us would have a special feeling to receive something new, be it small or big, irrespective of our age. New dress brightens our looks, new paint brightens the house, new toys brighten our face, new assignments brighten our mood and of course new beginnings brighten up our life. Who does not like something new? A new year also is a much anticipated time that gives us yet again a chance to wipe out our past failures and to start afresh, sometimes with well-planned resolutions or sometimes even without. How important are the things of old in a …

    You Just Need to Trust God

    As the New Year dawns, each one of us enters the New Year from various situations within and around us. Some might have an excitement about a new blossoming year as the last year would have yielded unexpected things in their lives beyond what they envisaged. Some might not bother about what is happening around them, as they would have lost their hope and live a numb life. Even many believers fall in the latter group. Though they enthusiastically seem to be participating in worships and prayers, a conversation with them would reveal their heart that has lost hope. Though …

    The world becomes busy as the Christmas season approaches. Many friends of mine from different walks of life are also excited about this time of the year. Even though they don’t celebrate Christmas, they feel this time of the year creates so much positivity with lights and songs everywhere. Some of my European friends are happy about a long holiday season and for the children, it’s all about their beloved Santa with his gifts and his funny moves. The meaning of Christmas differs from one person to another. But many times, people fail to remember the very meaning and purpose …

    The Birth of Last Adam

    There are many reasons as to why Jesus came into this world, that we cannot even comprehend and might find out more when we get to heaven but let us now look at some of the obvious just straight out of the Bible. “God in the beginning created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep” says the very first of the verse of the Bible. And God said “Let there be light, and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the …
