Jesse's need your attention!

Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them. Deuteronomy 4:9

Good morning, friends. Below is a funny story by which we can learn something great from a small boy.

The boy listened closely as the rabbi read the Bible. “May I ask a question?” he asked. “Sure. Go ahead. Ask your question”, replied the rabbi. “Well, the Bible says that the children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, the children of Israel built the temple, the children of Israel did this and the children of Israel did that. Didn't the grown-ups ever do anything?”

Quite funny, right? Deuteronomy clearly says that whatever the elders have known and seen, they have to pass it on to the younger generations. I watched a movie about Abraham, the father of Faith. It showed Abraham as one who taught his son Isaac and other children about the God whom he knew. Let me write something more which I read just now from the book ‘White cane religion’ by Stephen Hill.

“I’m Jesse. What do you want?” asked the young man with bloodshot eyes to Steve who replied, “I’m a preacher of the gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ. I want to come in and talk to you.” This young man opened the door and sat down without a word and so Steve said, “I know you Jesse. I know what your life is like. You go out every night with a gang of 35 guys who call you as their leader and terrorize the country. Your bunch is known for the meanest gangs. You’ve vandalized neighborhoods and you’ve raped girls. You’ve involved in thefts & fights every night. I also know the man inside you. You return home and you cry yourself to sleep at night. Jesse, you’re the unhappiest man on the face of the earth.” Do you know what the gang leader did? He didn’t rise up to beat Steve, instead he started crying like a baby!

There are so many Jesse’s all around you showing themselves as the toughest ones outside, but their hearts are just like this Jesse. What are you going to do today? Don’t you think that God has allowed this Jesse to come into your life? Don’t you think that the peace you enjoy should also be enjoyed by him? Are you not having this Jesse inside your own family? Did you ever have a thought of sharing your precious Jesus with him? Do you like telling him that Jesus is the only one who could give him the peace and joy he looks for? What is holding you today from showing the only Healer who can heal any sickness & sins? Already the clock started ticking. It’s your time to do something for Christ and for the ones who desperately need Him. It’s never late, still there are so many Jesse’s. Let them not stand against you in the Day of Judgment.

May God bless!

Be Beautiful!!!

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13 : 16
This is a great story that I have read on the internet. 

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her son was missing. She took him to the concert to show her appreciation toward his progress on the piano lessons. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit, keep playing.” Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running descant. Together, the old master and the young novice tra…

When love touches you!

Warm greetings!! I have been quite busy with my little one. Yes, I have been blessed with a baby girl after a wait of more than 3.5 years and she is 3 months old today, by the pure grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please keep her (Janice) in your prayers.
“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.“ 1 Peter 1: 22
As I read this verse, this morning, I was carried away in my own thoughts as to how I can love from the depth of my heart. Is it even possible? Peter once behaved as an unfaithful one to Jesus to whom he was so close for about 3.5 years, when he denied Jesus to the core. He even cursed him as he was scared for his own life, and now it is quite funny to hear about deep love from such a person, by the way. J
After my baby girl was born, to be honest, I could not say if I really loved her. Because my mind was completely occupied by recovery, long days and nights, sleep deprivat…

God of second chances!

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1 : 37
Do you feel that you are going nowhere just because you find yourself stuck with things that bother you? Then this is absolutely for you.
Yesterday, I was surprised to see Siddhu smiling at me early in the morning at around 6:20 AM.  He is 5 years old now and I live in his home as a paying guest. He held my hand and took me downstairs to show me a thick piece of paper on which he had cut and pasted Angry Birds’ green pigs. (Angry Birds is a game in which the players use a sling shot to launch the birds at pigs, with the intent of destroying them.) He had cut these out of the fruit gummies wrapper I had given him the previous day. He also colored the entire sheet of paper in green. While I stood, surprised to see how cute that was, he again took me to the kitchen, opened a cupboard, and gave me a yellow fruit gummy. He had never done that before. I told him that I hadn’t even brushed my teeth yet. He replied, “That’s fine. Take it up …
