Talk the walk!


Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus. Acts 21:13


Good morning, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Here I am to share a message to you all who enjoyed Christmas! Do you know who the first Evangelists were? Shepherds! As soon as they received the good news from an angel they were glad and went and saw Jesus! They didn’t stop there, but the Bible says that they proclaimed whatever they heard and saw! So pass on what you’ve been enjoying being in Christ!

Today I had to attend a weekly status call with my client at 8.30 AM. After reaching the office I also had to read a document before the call. I started walking from my apartment at around 8 AM. I and one of my colleagues would walk some days. Due to the cold weather I was not able to walk fast and the time was running like anything. Sweat was all over my body in spite of the cold weather. I thought I would even faint. I prayed in my heart, “Lord, help me walk and strengthen me as I walk.” Though it was painful I was so glad that I didn’t stop in the middle when I reached the office at 8.25 AM. The Lord is great! I thought the Lord would have held the time for a while till I reached.

Sometimes you may think why am I a Christian? I am not able to enjoy as my friends do. It imposes many rules on me that I should not watch this, I should not speak like this, I should not hear this, etc… Why am I restricted in many ways? A loving mother would never allow her child to go anyway that she wants, but carefully allows her to walk on the safer roads. When God tells us not to do something it is just for our good and not to harm us. Bible says in Matthew 7:14, “But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.” So walk through the smaller gate and on the narrow road. It’s of really no use when you give up in the middle; you need to walk till the end to reach the destination! When others see you walking on the narrow roads they would understand that it would lead them too to life and not to death. Remember Paul was even ready to die for the name of the Lord if it would save many souls to the life.

Importantly, talk the walk rather than just talk. :) May God bless you!

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…
