Watch your step, guys!!!


Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. Romans 1:32
But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. Romans 2:5-8

First of all, it is good to reach you all through this message after such a long time.

In 2012 and 2013, Minneapolis had become my winter spot. :)

During the winter, I heard many bus drivers, when the passengers get down from the bus, saying, “Watch your step, guys”. The reason is that they walk comfortably inside the bus, but the moment when they step down on the icy road, there is a good chance that they may skid and fall down, leading to a lot of pain and accidents.

Recently in my office, I got to speak to a man seeking some domain suggestions. I really like him. The way that he reacts to my questions patiently and very promptly always surprises me. One day we had to meet him face to face for some clarifications. He sat with us with a pack of cigars in his hands. He also had a very tall coffee mug with dark coffee in it. He also had mints with him to keep us away from the smoke smell and so I guessed he must have walked in right after he smoked. While having the discussion, he could not speak continuously. All he did was cough and then apologize to us for what he did, followed by coughing and doing the same all over again. Since I like him very much, I felt very sad thinking how he spoils his health. His extreme knowledge about his project and domain seemed a waste to me when I compare it with his health. Seriously, for several days I felt sad for his smoking habit.

It took some time for me to realize that I worried much for his health, but not for the perishing souls.

What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? Matthew 16:26

When I backslide, what I do to my own soul, as well as many other souls, is more dangerous than that. “Our thoughts become action; actions become habit, habit becomes character and character determines our destiny.” We are not just backsliding; we also act as a stumbling block for others from coming to Jesus. When people around us see us sinning, they, without knowing the saving truth, will end up doing the same, thinking it is not sin. We are accountable for everything we do.

We need to watch out what we do & what we think! He loves us. He wants to save us; and others through us. In these last days, we may be the only Bibles which many people read!

May God bless you!

  2. Hi, I really didn't correlate smokers with perishing souls. All I said was, I gave much importance to a his health rather than to the perishing souls around. I hope you get this. :)

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…
