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. :)

Be Beautiful!!!

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13 : 16
This is a great story that I have read on the internet. 

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her son was missing. She took him to the concert to show her appreciation toward his progress on the piano lessons. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit, keep playing.” Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running descant. Together, the old master and the young novice tra…

When love touches you!

Warm greetings!! I have been quite busy with my little one. Yes, I have been blessed with a baby girl after a wait of more than 3.5 years and she is 3 months old today, by the pure grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please keep her (Janice) in your prayers.
“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.“ 1 Peter 1: 22
As I read this verse, this morning, I was carried away in my own thoughts as to how I can love from the depth of my heart. Is it even possible? Peter once behaved as an unfaithful one to Jesus to whom he was so close for about 3.5 years, when he denied Jesus to the core. He even cursed him as he was scared for his own life, and now it is quite funny to hear about deep love from such a person, by the way. J
After my baby girl was born, to be honest, I could not say if I really loved her. Because my mind was completely occupied by recovery, long days and nights, sleep deprivat…

God of second chances!

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1 : 37
Do you feel that you are going nowhere just because you find yourself stuck with things that bother you? Then this is absolutely for you.
Yesterday, I was surprised to see Siddhu smiling at me early in the morning at around 6:20 AM.  He is 5 years old now and I live in his home as a paying guest. He held my hand and took me downstairs to show me a thick piece of paper on which he had cut and pasted Angry Birds’ green pigs. (Angry Birds is a game in which the players use a sling shot to launch the birds at pigs, with the intent of destroying them.) He had cut these out of the fruit gummies wrapper I had given him the previous day. He also colored the entire sheet of paper in green. While I stood, surprised to see how cute that was, he again took me to the kitchen, opened a cupboard, and gave me a yellow fruit gummy. He had never done that before. I told him that I hadn’t even brushed my teeth yet. He replied, “That’s fine. Take it up …
