A cloak to Jesus!

Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.Proverbs 3 : 27

Good morning to you all. For so many days, I was not able to send out this email, but today God gave me a wonderful chance to send this across. Kindly go ahead and read the following with burden. If God speaks to you, don’t forget to reply me.

St. Martin of Tours was born as the son of a senior military officer of the Roman army. Attracted by the Christian doctrines, he went to the church as a candidate for baptism at the age of ten, even against the wishes of his pagan parents. At the age of fifteen he had to join the military.

On a bitterly cold winter day, he was passing through the city gates of Amiens. He saw a scantily dressed poor beggar, shivering in the snow storm. No one cared for him. Out of compassion, Martin cut his fine military cloak into two pieces with his sword. He gave one piece to the poor man who thankfully wrapped himself with it as a shawl. Martin covered himself with …

William Carey, the Father of Modern Missions

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”Matthew 28: 19,20

Good morning friends. In my fellowship, the guys are going to Surat to share the love of our Christ. So I thought that knowing about the missionaries will help increasing the burden to sow the seeds of Jesus, the only hope to mankind. I’ve already shared this last year. Now I added a few more to it.

I saw the film ‘Candle in the dark’ which tells about 'William Carey' and his awesome work for God.

William Carey was an English protestant missionary. He was called as 'Father of Modern Missions'. He along with his family left his country and reached Kolkata, India. He longed to preach in India. He was very intelligent that he began to learn Bengali when he was in travel to India. He mastered in Bengali and …

Wanna spread EAFLU? Part VI

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.Matthew 7 : 12

Good morning, friends. Let us read about the last letter ‘U’ today. It’s nothing but ‘Understand.’ The following is narrated by someone on Emotional Intelligence.

One day I was trying to get a defective product replaced before I started a trip overseas. I made several phone calls and tried to explain the situation several times to several different people. I kept getting passed around from one department to another. People kept debating with me and telling me what the company policies were without listening to me. No one seemed to understand or care that it was important to me that the product be replaced before I left for my trip. I was feeling more and more frustrated, even exasperated. Finally I found someone who understood what I was trying to say and what I needed. I could literally feel the tension releasing from my body. I thought to myself," Finally.…

Wanna spread EAFLU? Part V

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.Matthew 7 : 12

Good morning, friends. Let us read something about what the letter L means. Listen!!! I’ve shared this incident earlier. But I’m sending this again as this is very much related to our study.

One day while I was waiting for a train, an old man sat next to me. He was to rush to Egmore to catch a train to his native place. He started talking to me. He told about his family in spite of my silence. He told that he was working in a foreign country to earn lots and lots of money. He spent some 50000 to 100000 rupees to visit India once in a year. After getting the satisfaction of earning money, he returned to India to spend the rest of his years with his lovable family. He invested his money in share market which he earned after so many years of hard work, that too in a foreign country where he survived without his family. Soon the profit went down and he lost almost all…
