Trust in the risen Lord - Part I


Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3 : 5

Good morning! 

This is our Pastor’s message this past Sunday from Mark 16:1-7. I loved it and wanted to share it with you in three parts. Below is the first part.

When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. Mark 16:1-4

With great purpose in their hands (to anoint Jesus’ body), questions in their minds (They knew that the stone at the tomb’s entrance was big and they could not roll it away to enter into it. They asked themselves who would roll the stone away for them) and no answers to their questions, they didn’t quit. They kept on walking. But they were surprised when they saw that the stone was already rolled away.

These women walked until they arrived at tomb. They didn’t give up on their way. Because they didn’t give up, they were able to see that the stone had been rolled away for them.

Do you remember what happened when Moses sent twelve men to Canaan? All the twelve saw both the wealth as well as the giants, but only Joshua and Caleb came back with good news that the Israelites could go and capture the land, whereas the other ten came back with words of discouragement as they had questions and fear on how to defeat those giants. Only two men ignored the questions that they had. Listen, you may not have all the answers to your questions. But don’t quit. Just walk forward in faith because your God has all the answers. The Lord will honor your faith.

God cares about every single detail of your life. The Bible says that the Lord knows what you need even before you know you need it. Are you worrying about something today? Don’t lose hope. You’re there. Our Risen Lord is Big! He can do great things for you in your life. March on.

Trust Him when you don’t know what the future holds for you. You don’t know what the future holds for you, but you know that your God holds your future. He has plans to prosper you & not to harm you. He saved you for a purpose. Whatever God has called you to do, do it; He will give you the strength to finish what you started, by faith.

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…
