Wanna miraculous signs?

The Pharisees came and began to question Jesus. To test him, they asked him for a sign from heaven. He sighed deeply and said, "Why does this generation ask for a miraculous sign? Mark 8 : 11,12


Good morning, friends.

Last day, one of my friends working with me has sent me a text message that she has cleared an exam at the very last attempt only by the compassion of the Lord. I in turn have sent her an email saying, 'I praise God for your last attempt, where He proved that He still lives!' Later I reached my room and when I read Mark 8, the Lord made me realize one thing that I've done wrong.

If we carefully read all the four gospels from The Bible, we can know that the Pharisees were always around Jesus when He preached the truths, when He healed, when He raised people from the death. Even after knowing everything, they asked for a miraculous sign. Jesus questioned them and left them all and went other side.

I really felt ashamed for what I've sent to my friend. Didn't I behave exactly like the Pharisees? I know very well that even before I was born, He has chosen me and has known me by my name. So far, He has beautifully led me through various blessings, that I could not count forever. He has also led me through various trials and taught me how to overcome them all by His strength. I know very well that my Lord has great plans in store for me. I also know that He loves me more than anyone else, though I'm not at all worthy. I know that He has cleansed my blood red sins into cloudy white. I know that He is my potter who prepares me for the purpose He has for me. Though, I sent her 'I praise God for your last attempt, where he proved that He still lives'. Does He really have to prove that He lives even after His death for the worst sinners and the miraculous resurrection from the death?

'He is risen and He lives forever more'. Come on, let us celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, instead of looking/asking for miraculous signs.

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…
