Carry others' burden

Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

Everything went smooth for me for the past few days. Praise God. :)

Today due to some official issues at work, I was very upset. While returning to my home, I decided to stay on the bus until it reached its last stop rather than getting off at my own stop. I thought this would give me some break from my anxiety. My decision didn’t change until I saw 2 people get on the bus & sit in the front seat. While I was still feeling worried, I saw them and something attracted me to them & their conversation. You know what? They spoke in sign language to each other. Though I was not able to understand anything, I knew that they conversed on whatever they saw. I felt really ashamed to have dwelled so much on the same problem again and again which had already been resolved by God’s grace.

When looking at these 2 people, I realized how blessed I am. I also realized that no matter how much God blesses me, I still give too much importance to the little things which bother me, while there are people out there with many problems which can’t be expressed by words. Getting up, going to office, working for a while, returning, worrying about our own problems, eating & sleeping shouldn’t be our routine. Now the real question comes! So what should someone do?

The answer is pretty simple! The burden which you and I have toward the suffering people will change us. We should not be completely immersed in our own problems. We should see beyond our own world. Let us at least start with our own friends and neighbors. Now another big question comes! When we ourselves are busy with our own schedules, without much contact with our friends, how can we know that they are in trouble? How can we pray about that?

Listen, the Lord didn’t destroy Sodom and Gomorrah without letting Abraham know of it. He didn’t allow famine throughout the world without preparing Joseph for those 7 years of drought. He didn’t want to silently destroy Nineveh, instead he sent Jonah to warn the people to come out of their wicked ways. God always wants to reveal the secrets with us when we are ready to stand for Him and His people in the gap.

I know many people who have visions from the Lord, and then suddenly have deep burden for someone. They know that something is going to happen with them. But still when they stand in prayer, the problems that are yet to come will not happen. When you get dreams & visions about you or someone else, don’t be worried or discouraged. God just gives you a heads-up and asks you to pray about it. Just carry their burdens as yours and pray for them as per Galatians 6:2! Your prayers can save them!

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…
