Do yourself a favor!!!

"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus ..." Romans 8:1

Good morning, friends. Today let us read an incident told by Dr. David (Paul) Yonggi Cho.

One beautiful couple met Dr. Cho. The wife (let us say 'X') looked so depressed. The holy spirit reminded Dr. Cho to ask her about her past. But she refused to reveal it. When Cho told that he would help only if she could open up her heart about her past, she started pouring out. After her parents died at her early years, she was brought up by one lady who had a daughter who got married and when she was away from her husband for her delivery, this X and her sister's husband fell in love with one another and crossed their limits. After that incident, her sister's husband called her again and again and she too cooperated as she was afraid that he would leak things out. Later she got fed up with his relationship and she left him far away and started to lead a new life with a new job, a good husband and loving children. Everything went out good, but this lady was very depressed as she got reminded of that man who had wrong relationship with her whenever her husband loved her. Whenever her children hugged and loved her, she was guilty that she was not at all worthy of their love. When Cho heard that, he asked her to simply forgive herself for what happened.

Now let us read something about the conversation of Mr. R.T. Kendall with Joyce Meyer.

Mr. R.T. Kendall says, "The devil loves it when we are living in condemnation. When you're not forgiving yourself you're helping the devil do his job. Because he is called as an accuser of the brothers in Revelation chapter 12. So when you're accusing yourself, the devil can just go off for a vacation, because you're doing his job for him. We're commanded to forgive ourselves by believing what Jesus Christ did on the cross. When you forgive others, you're giving a gift which they don't deserve it. Don't feel guilty of what you did in the past. I say, give yourself a gift of forgiveness which you don't deserve. This is what the Lord wants you to do. Just set yourself free."

Only in this way you can feel the joy and peace our Savior has for you. Unless you forgive yourself remembering the Savior on the cross and his cleansing power, you are easily prone to devil's work, just like our body is viable to any disease when our immune system collaps when the WBC count drops. So please don't give satan a chance.

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
