Go and Take Charge.....
“Go up and take possession of it” (Deuteronomy 1:21.) This was the command Moses bellowed to the children of God as they were poised on the borders of promised land but they miserably failed to obey God's encouraging words passed to them…Continue

“God does not necessarily choose the qualified but, qualifies the chosen”.
Reflecting theolographically on Michael Beckwith’s famous quote, my somber thoughts instantly zeroed-in on David who fits the second half of the above enlightening quote like a divine glove. David did not inherit his ‘Kingship’ nor was he selected as a king by his people. David was chosen by the Almighty who qualified and trained him to rule…

Recently one of my friend’s was elaborating on how one of his colleagues in the office had led him into the financial cobweb he was presently entangled in and how his life has consequently gotten into a turbulent mess currently. Many a times, most of us have found ourselves in chaotic and cumbersome situations due to the actions or misdemeanors of certain individuals who had crisscrossed into either our…Continue

Dear Disciple of Christ,
“The Word of the Cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Cor. 1:18) – Indeed, for those of us who are being saved, the Word of the Cross – the Word that was made Flesh is the Power of God through the Power of our Faith! It is not what we have accomplished that brings salvation in our lives but what Jesus has accomplished on the cross. Unless Jesus comes in our situations that require mercy there…Continue

“13” – The number thirteen has always been considered as ‘taboo’ by many – a number that is feared and avoided in fact, absolutely detested by many. Even scientist and physicist have not been exception to this unwritten law / rule / practice – the conspicuous hesitation in numbering the ‘Apollo 13’ spacecraft by America’s NASA until near the very end prior to the actual launched of that spacecraft into the space and when coincidentally that fateful spacecraft crashed killing all the…Continue

“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12) - ‘If we are the children of God, then why do we suffer?’ retorted a friend of mine who is a staunch believer too. Here is a reflection that endeavors to substantiate with a challenging answer to several of our frequent questions to God such as “Why do I Suffer like this, God?” or “How long more, Lord?” or even as some of us may brazenly…Continue

"I no longer call you servants but call you as my friends" (John 15:15) - Jesus said these compassionate words to His Apostles on the eve of His arrest knowing fully well that in a few hours’ time the Apostles are going to desert Him, run away into hiding and even one of the closest apostle to Jesus denying the knowledge of knowing Him at all. What made Jesus to love His Apostles so much to even proclaim "Love one another as I have loved you so the…Continue

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee… (Jeremiah 1:5) – since the Almighty being our creator knew us before we were even formed, why do we have to pray to Him submitting lists after lists of our needs & necessities? If God knows what we need, why do we have to bring our request to Him through our prayers? Why do we have to pray? In fact, why did Jesus pray?
Why did the Master of prayers pray? The gospels cite many…Continue

“for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith”. (1 John 5:4).
“I am a victor in Christ Jesus… I am an Overcomer… Nothing in my circumstances… Nothing what people say or do will affect my faith” – proclaimed aloud these words whenever you’re discouraged or in a difficult situation and you would find yourself a ‘Winner’. This is my…Continue

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you” (John 17:20-21). "No Christian is greater than his prayer life”.
Jesus besides praying for His apostles & disciples was also praying exclusively for those “believable heroes” the unassuming non-descript ‘Christian’ brother/sister amongst us who firmly “Believe in Jesus through His message that all…Continue

“This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples” (John 15:8) - “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him”. The glory of Christ is the most precious reality in the universe and it is obscured when the doctrine of justification is lost or blurred for the people of God.
Time has come for the church to have believable heroes. We…Continue

“Let the weak say, ‘I am strong!’ ” (Joel 3:10) – And my strength is Christ Jesus.
Recently on Sunday, 19th August 2012, a totally surprising prophecy about me, a humble servant of God was prophesized by Pastor Mike Guntknecht of USA as he came & stood before me in the midst of large congregation at the Lifeline Ministry Church here (pls. see link published separately) and…Continue

Jesus said to the Jerusalemites, “How often would I have longed to gather your children together, even as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings” (Mat. 23:37). This motherly love of protection is applicable to all of us also if we truly & absolutely love Him through our faith and sincerely seek His shelter.
Gnostic, as well as synoptic definition of the 21st Millennium sadly depicts an era where,…Continue

“When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind Him in the crowd and touched His cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch His clothes, I will be healed.”Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering”. (Mark 5:27-29).…Continue

The biggest ever challenge and threat that satan faced in all his existence was the excruciatingly painful walk the torturously tormented Jesus undertook that ultimately culminated in satan’s utter defeat on the cross when Jesus won over death gifting us our salvation through His love for us.
Before this humble devotional essay deliberates on the intricacies of Jesus’ benchmark love for us that enabled Him through epic…Continue
