Do you believe?

For everyone born of God (child of God) overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5 : 4


Good morning, friends. I read this in a book and found it to be useful. I hope you’ll too.

Some years ago, a boy in a small Florida town heard that the Russians were their enemies. He began to wonder about the Russian children, finding it too hard to believe they were his enemies. He wrote a short note: “Dear friend in Russia, I’m seven years old and I believe that we can live in peace. I want to be your friend, not your enemy. Will you be my friend and write back to me?”

He closed the letter “Love and Peace” and signed his name. He neatly folded the note, out it into a bottle and threw it into an island lake near his home. Several days later, the bottle and the note were retrieved on a nearby beach. A story about the note appeared in a local newspaper and a wire service picked up the story and sent it nationwide. A group of people from New Hampshire who were taking children to the Soviet Union as ambassadors of peace, read the article, contacted the boy and his family and invited them to go with them. The little boy and his father traveled to Moscow as peacemakers!

Jesus told us to have faith like a little child. One boy believed that he could make a difference! Do you believe today that you too can make a difference when you’ve a deep desire for peace and love? At least maintain a good relationship in your small world, with your classmates, with your colleagues who are in the next cubicle, with the neighbors, with those who travel next to you in bus, etc,… Little drops of water make an ocean. If each and every one of us starts looking for ways to share our love, I believe there is no need for an ambassador. After all, we have a single life. Why do we have to waste it hating others?

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…
