How close I'm to God?

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. Psalms 1:1,2

Every day in the morning, I and a small boy nearer to my home compete with one another. I'll strive hard to start from my home before he start to his school. If I win, I'll just go to his door to tell him, "Roshan, I'm the first". But he will not reply at least once if I win. He'll hide him inside his home without even replying me. But if the reverse happens, he won't allow me to do any work. He'll come before me and shout at me, as if he won the whole world. Today morning he started earlier. My door was not opened. So as usual he shouted happily. Though I didn't see him, I could feel his happiness. Similarly, I could see his anger when I start first, even though he hides his face from me.

How is it possible for me to understand his feelings? The only answer is 'Because I know him well'. Everyday I mingle with him. I play with him. Sometimes I teach him, I beat him(of course it won't hurt him), etc... As I interact with him daily, I can feel all his feelings. In the same way, if I have a good relationship with my heavenly father my God, the most Holy and exalted, I can know His feelings. If I meditate His words always and If I dine with His spiritual goods, I am a better one to understand Him, to feel Him, to possess Him, to accept Him, to love Him. Nothing else could be a barrier in listening to Him. Yes friends, in this dangerous world, it is sometimes very hard to hear His silent voice. But if ours and His vision are synchronized with each other, nothing will stop us from being His precious children.

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…
