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!

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…
