Be a doer!

We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. Hebrews 2:1

Good morning, friends.

I’m working for a new project since the last month. I’m the only one working from my organization interacting with the client teams at on-site. This is altogether a very different project. Clients give knowledge transfer everyday and they assign some tasks to me. When I listen to them over the phone, or when I watch them doing things on their system, I’ll be pretty sure they’re very easy to perform. But when they all go to sleep assigning me the same tasks, I’ll be in such a pathetic situation if I get stuck somewhere. Mostly I’ll hesitate to wake them up at night. But if I face any problem, there is no way I can perform the tasks which need to be done at the scheduled times. So what we planned is, whatever they tell me, I’ll do in front of them by remote desktop sharing and once they feel I’m comfortable, they’ll go for a happy nap. This is how I learn and implement things as this is the start.

When I read Hebrews 2:1, I really understood why Paul insisted us to pay more attention to what we hear. The more we lend our ears, the more careful we listen. But what is the use of hearing all the time? When we don’t implement what we hear and what we are taught, if we’re left alone, certainly there comes a day when we are digging a deep pit for ourselves. When I say ‘left alone’ I really mean it. It is very easier for me to be good in front of others. I know how to speak when others look at me. I know how to do things when I see someone next to me. But what I do when none is with me, is what that matters. God gives instructions to us through His Word. As Paul says, we have to listen to what the Lord speaks to us when we read Bible or when we hear ministers preaching to us. Mere listening is not enough. That’s why the Bible clearly asks us to ‘Be a doer’. When you implement things by your own, you’ll really know your own potential. If you’re lacking anything, you can ask God the wisdom you need. Still if we are just listeners, it is much clear that we’re going to be drifted away. We have to stand firm in our faith, else we’ll not stand at all. To stand against the wrong desires and all the other unwanted stuff, we should not be just a listener. Did you ever think of Paul and his ministry? He was a great persecutor, but when God spoke to him ONCE, his life got completely transformed. How many years are we hearing to great preachers? How many times have we read the Bible completely? But still, we are nowhere nearer to Paul. Why? We pathetically fail to implement. My suggestion to you and me is ‘read one letter of Paul everyday.’ And be a doer!

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…
