"Gospel from India" 
Pretty easy, isn't it?

A local pastor told of a teenager at his church who was responsible for leading dozens of his friends to Christ.

How did he accomplish this great feat, you ask?

It's actually pretty simple.

He invited schoolmates to come to church with him.
Most accepted the invitation, began attending regularly, and became involved in the many activities the church provided for the youth.

This teen was a great missionary by simply bringing his friends to church and then letting the teachers and pastors take it from there.

In explaining the young man's amazing success at witnessing to his friends, the pastor said simply, "No one ever told him that witnessing was supposed to be hard!"

Indeed, it need not be.

There are a lot of simple, non-intimidating things you can do to help someone begin their journey toward Christ.

For instance, you can forward a devotion to a co-worker or friend when you see a message that may be particularly helpful to him or her.

Follow up with an email explaining that you get these devotionals each day and have found it a great way to begin the morning.
Chances are good that this friend will become a subscriber and begin each day bathed in the Word.

Pretty easy, isn't it?
Really, witnessing doesn't always have to be tough.

Gospel from Asia

I am not ashamed
​I believe the Bible from cover to cover.

God’s Word is mankind’s only sure guide to life eternal and abundant.
It is infallible in every subject area and brilliantly reflects the holy, unchanging character of God Himself.

When God speaks, and He does so through Scripture, all of us should listen.

Obedience to God’s Word brings blessing.
Disobedience brings chastisement and ultimately eternal punishment in hell, away from the majesty and presence of God.
Everything we do should be built on the integrity and authority of God’s holy Word.

We preach it, proclaim it and live by it.
We want to see many of the “religiously unaffiliated” discover, through repentance and faith, the vitality of a relationship with Jesus Christ.

The power of God is in His Word.
“For ​​I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.” Romans 1:16..​​

Gospel for Asia
I chose you!

"I chose you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart before you were born. I appointed you a prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:5.
The blessings and trials we experience in life are like the ingredients in a cake.
When you’re mixing them, some taste good by themselves such as sugar and chocolate.

But other ingredients—like baking powder and flour—aren’t pleasant by themselves.
Still, they are essential and must be mixed with the good-tasting ingredients to make a delicious final product.

Sometimes we have a hard time understanding why God allows us to go through difficulties and trials.

The prophet Jeremiah is a perfect example of this dilemma; he went through periods of tremendous suffering.

Through it all-
God reassured him that, even from the womb,
His purpose for Jeremiah was being fulfilled.

We can trust God, our Maker, to take even the bitter experiences of life and blend them together with the good ones to make all things work for our good.

If you are a believer, then God is very clear about your purpose.
God is at work in His world, and He’s involving each of us in a very specific

Gospel from India" 
Fulfilling His plan?

Uppermost in God’s thoughts is man’s salvation.
He expects Christians to have the same mindset.

We've been charged with advancing His kingdom by sharing the gospel and discipling others.
As His servants, we’re to focus on His agenda, not preoccupy ourselves with earthly concerns. 2 Tim. 2:4.

To achieve His plan-
God will open doors of service for each of us—in local churches, neighbourhoods, workplaces, or foreign lands.

Our part is to watch for opportunities and be ready to take an active role.

Spiritual preparation includes prayer and a daily quiet time, plus accountability with other believers.

Whether God assigns us major tasks or smaller ones, we must be in position and all set to say yes.

When we answer His call, we will discover He has equipped us with everything that we need to fulfill our mission. 2 Pet. 1:3.

The most important work in our world is to help with the Father’s redemptive plan:

He is rescuing people from the power of sin, adopting them into His family, and transforming them from rebellious, self-centered beings into reflections of His obedient and loving Son Jesus.

Those of us who have been the beneficiaries of God’s saving work have an obligation to assist in His plan to rescue others.

We have a responsibility to prepare ourselves—by surrendering our desires for His, committing to know Him better, and obeying His directions.

The Lord has prepared work for each of us to do. Eph. 2:10.

How is He asking you to use your spiritual gifts and abilities to fulfill His plan?

Gospel from India" 
Defeated death

Have you ever heard someone say that there are other ways to God besides Jesus?
That all religions are equal?
That as long as we are sincere in what we believe, a loving God will accept us?
That the cross was not necessary?
That if our good works outweigh our bad works, we can hope to go to Heaven?

But-
- if there are other ways to God besides Jesus,
- if all religions are equal,
- if God accepts all those who are sincere in their beliefs,
- if our good works earn us a ticket to Heaven,
- then why did Jesus die?

If there was any other way to offer us forgiveness of sin, to reconcile us to God, to give us eternal life, and to open Heaven for us when we die-
God would have found it.

He never would have sent Jesus to die on the cross.
There simply is no other way.

Take time to thank God for sending His only beloved Son to die on the cross as His sacrifice for our sin.

Thank Him by confessing your sin and living humbly in His forgiveness.

Then go and tell someone else why Jesus died.

"Dear God, thank You for sending Your Son to die for me. I’m so glad that when He rose from the grave, He ​​defeated death and the grave forever. Please help me share the Good News. In Jesus’ Name. Amen

Pseudo faith

The Great Blondin, probably the Evel Knievel of his day, was notorious for his incredible, death-defying acts.
On one occasion, he strung a tightrope across the Niagara Falls.
As a crowd gathered, he stood before them and said-
"How many of you believe that I, the Great Blondin, can walk across this tightrope to the other side?"

They all said, "We believe! We believe!"

So he walked across the tightrope and came back again.
The people applauded, thrilled by his death-defying feat.

Then he said, "How many of you believe that I, the Great Blondin, can not only walk back across that tightrope, but this

time do it while I push a wheelbarrow?"

"We believe!" they yelled louder, wanting to see him do this.

Then he said, "How many of you really believe it?"

"Oh, we really believe it!" they shouted back.

One man was yelling a little bit louder than all the others, so the Great Blondin pointed to him and said, "Then get in

the wheelbarrow."

The man quickly disappeared.

That's how a lot of people are today.

We'll say, "I believe! I believe!"
But how many are truly willing to get into God's wheelbarrow, so to speak?

Some people have a pseudofaith but not real belief as the Bible would require.
It is, therefore, of the greatest importance that we know what true faith is.

The book of James points out there is such a thing as a phony or dead faith..
And any declaration of faith that does not result in a changed life and good works is a false declaration.

It is faith alone that justifies.
But faith that justifies can never be alone

Walk stuck?

Even in this age of technological marvels-- there are still many people who suffer a deficiency exposed by a telltale sign: a flashing “12:00” on the oven clock.

Isn't it odd that a person can operate a motor vehicle at 70 mph, microwave an entire meal in three minutes, and navigate through the Internet’s information superhighway and yet not know how to set a simple clock?

Is the solution so complicated?
Is the answer to this riddle so deeply hidden that only a few brave souls dare to seek it out?

No, of course not!
There’s only one reason why this technical tip-off is so common: People do not read the instruction book.

When we purchase a new gizmo or appliance, we always find within the package an instruction book.
 
And what does this book contain?
It has all the answers we need to get the most out of our new purchase.

Do you realize the Christian life is like that?
Scripture declares that when a person comes to faith in Jesus Christ, he or she is a “new creation.” 2 Cor. 5:17.

To get the most out of our new life, we are given an instruction book:
The Bible!

This is far more than a simple guide that teaches how to act or what to say..
This Book tells us exactly how to live a life that is pleasing to God.

Is your Christian walk stuck?
Do you have the proverbial “12:00” flashing in your life, indicating that you have set aside your Instruction Book?

Pick it up today for a fresh look, and enjoy God’s perfect how-to manual.
You will not be disappointed.
 

Abandoned?

"The Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed." Deuteronomy 31:8.
Years ago, Roy Orbison recorded one of the great rock and roll classics, entitled:
"Only the Lonely."

A couple of the lines from the song were, "Only the lonely know the way I feel tonight...Only the lonely know the heartaches I've been through."

That song resonated with a lot of lonely people who knew what it was like to be isolated, rejected, or abandoned.

Maybe you've been abandoned—perhaps it was by your parents, your spouse, or your children.
Or maybe you even feel that you've been abandoned by God Himself.

There are many people who feel estranged and alienated from God.
Even if they have everything they want in life, they may still face a deep, inner loneliness.

We read in John 5 of a man at the pool of Bethesda who was in a seemingly hopeless situation.

He had been abandoned.
He was uncared for and unable to help himself.
What's more, he'd been in that condition for many long, weary years..

He must have been desperately lonely.

In this account, we learn that Jesus changed the man's life forever.
It's a story that tells you and me how to change as well.

Before Jesus brought transformation and healing into this man's life, however-
He first asked him a rather pointed question:
"Do you want to be made well?"

What if Jesus asked you the same question?

Is there something that needs healing or changing in your life?
Do you want to be made well?

Maybe it's an addiction to a certain vice or a lifestyle you are trapped in.
Maybe it's something you've tried to shake time and time again.
Or maybe it's an old hatred or resentment, nursed along over the months and years and becoming more and more toxic with the passing of time.

Jesus turned the course of this man's life around forever-
- giving him the ability to live a life free from loneliness and the power of sin.

We can live that life too—the ability to break old habits and to forgive old hurts and resentments.

He has all the transforming power we need-
- but we must "want to be made well."

"Gospel from India" gospelfromindia
Free gift

Many people have an unscriptural idea of what salvation means-
- but the term is so basic to understanding Christianity that it merits our careful attention. 

We can define salvation as the gift of God’s grace, goodness, love, and mercy, whereby He provides forgiveness for your sin and mine.

The Bible explains that “the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” 
Rom. 6:23. 

All of us are sinners deserving of death-
- but in His love and mercy, 
God made provision for our forgiveness: 
He allowed for atonement to be made by the shedding of blood. Lev. 17:11;Isa. 53:6. 

All of the Old Testament sacrifices foreshadowed what was to come, pointing to the once-for-all, substitutionary death of God’s sinless Son on the cross. 

Jesus took our place, receiving the punishment that was rightly ours. 
Indeed, mankind’s redemption was the purpose for which Christ came into the world. Luke 19:10. 

And so, salvation is related strictly to the person of Jesus Christ. 
That’s why John the Baptist proclaimed, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29.

There is no acceptance before almighty God—no way to come to Him—apart from the Saviour. John 14:6. 

Throughout Scripture, we see that salvation is a free gift that derives from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. 
It is not a result of good works; rather, a person who is saved will naturally produce good works. 

Have you chosen to receive God’s

Undivided attention!

God wants us to be aware of Him-
- and He will shake our world—literally and figuratively—to make that happen.

The Old Testament records that to gain mankind’s attention, the Lord moved heaven and earth. 
Mt. Sinai quaked before Moses received the Ten Commandments. Ex. 19:18-19. 

God also told Judah that He would shake things up by overthrowing kingdoms, armies, and nations. Hag. 2:20-22.

God did the same sort of thing in New Testament times. 
At the crucifixion, an earthquake signaled destruction of the old way of life and establishment of a new covenant. Matt. 27:51. 

Shortly afterward, a group of believers were filled with the Holy Spirit, and the ground trembled again. Acts 4:31.

But geological and societal turmoil aren't simply tactics of the past. 
God still shakes the world today. 

Every nation on earth “trembles” with concerns about the environment, health, famine, and its economy. 

Yet current issues will seem mild compared to the disasters and epidemics that will take place during the tribulation. Rev. 6. 

At that time, judgments of all kinds will be unleashed on the earth in order to get people’s attention.

God is sending the world a message: 
Mankind is not in control. 

Because He loves us, our Father will remove anything that we've trusted instead of Him—until we ultimately seek security 

only in our unshakable Lord.

Does God have your attention? 
Don’t wait for Him to take drastic measures. 
Be sure to give Him your undivided attention each day.

Take courage!
"Gospel from India" 
Min!​
"Jesus answered, 'The most important (commandment) is, Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your MIND and with all your strength.'" Mark 12:29-30.

As we strive to love God, all around us, every day, there is a constant battle for our minds. 

That is why we need to study the Word of God-
- so we can know the mind of God and what He expects of us and how He wants us to live. 

You’re not going to learn that by reading the daily newspaper, listening to talk radio or vegging in front of the TV.

One of my favorite passages of Scripture is Isaiah 55:8-9:

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” 

That’s a beautiful passage in the Word of God to describe why the Word of God is so unique. 

Because everything we read here in this life tends to be contrary to what God’s Word is saying. 

We need to immerse ourselves in the Word of God as a way of getting to know God-
- so that we can love God with our minds

Gospel from India
Spiritual birthday!
Jesus is God’s precious and perfect gift to us. 
Heaven sent, the present was willingly given at great cost because we were in desperate need. 


This remarkable gift from God is . . .


Personal. 
Through Jesus, the Father offers salvation to the entire world, one person at a time. John 3:16. 
Whoever receives the Son discovers His unlimited worth.


Preventive. 
When Jesus becomes our personal Savior, we are granted forgiveness and are set free from condemnation for our sin.Rom. 8:1. 
This divine gift prevents us from having to face eternal death, which would mean permanent separation from God.


Permanent! 
What Jesus brings us lasts forever. 


From the day of salvation, Christ’s Spirit indwells us and remains with us. 
As permanent members of God’s family, we have an inheritance in heaven that can neither spoil nor perish. 1 Pet. 1:3-5.


Passionate! 
Unconditional love is what motivated the Father to sacrifice His Son in our place. 
None of us deserved it. 


At some point, we've all sinned. Rom. 3:10.


We have turned away from God to follow our own desires. 
In spite of who we are, God set His affection on us and proved it through the life and death of His Son. 


By His love, we've been rescued from bondage to sin and are being transformed into the people He designed us to be.


If you haven’t accepted God’s offer of salvation, today can become your ​​spiritual birthday. 
If you already belong to God’s family, you know the value of the gift. 



Won’t you tell someone today about this marvelous present?​​

"Gospel from India" 
God’s gift!

​We try to give presents that are meaningful but we aren't always successful. However, ​​God’s gift—His Son Jesus—is always the right one for everybody. 

This gift is:

Planned!
Heaven sent. 

Jesus was sent to earth from the heavenlies in order to fulfill God’s plan. John 6:38. 
Every aspect of His life—from His birth as a little baby to His death on the cross—was part of the Father’s gift to us.

Propitious! 
God gave His Son to us because of our desperate need for rescue. 

Sin ruined the human race and placed us all under divine condemnation. 5:18.. 

Since we are unable to pay the price justly demanded by God for our sin-
- our greatest need has always been for a Saviour who could pay our sin debt for us. Romans 3:23;6:23. 

Only Jesus qualified because He was without sin. 
He became our Redeemer, reconciling us to God. 5:10.

Personal!
God sent Jesus to die in our place so that we might become part of His family. 
The Son deliberately sacrificed His life to accomplish the Father’s plan.

Perfect!
Jesus was God in human flesh, walking among mankind. 
His character and will are flawless, and He works perfectly on our behalf. 8:28-29.

Precious!
Jesus Christ can do for us what no material thing or other person can. 
In Him, we become new creations belonging to God. (2 Cor. 5:17.

God wrapped His special present to us in human flesh so we might know Him and identify with Him. 



 "Gospel from India" 
Identiity
"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come." 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Every person – man, woman, child, teenager – every person has an identity. 
What’s yours?

You could be a contractor, a CEO, a doctor, a high school jock, or a homecoming queen. 
Or maybe your identity is in your marital status: married, single, divorced, or widowed. 

Perhaps, you are known as an adulterer, a liar, or maybe you’re known as a kind and responsible person. 
All people are known by something that, in some way, identifies who they are.

God’s Word tells us that we can take on a new identity when we are compelled by the love of God that is found in Christ. 

In other words, when our spiritual eyes are opened and we finally see how much God loves us, we can’t help but respond to His love and give our hearts and lives to Christ in faith.

Here’s some really good news. 

Paul, who wrote the words in 2 Corinthians 5:17, had been a religious terrorist. 
He was headed out to arrest, persecute and kill Christians when he encountered the Risen Christ. 

He repented (which means he changed what he thought of Jesus in a way that changed the focus of his life) and became a devoted follower of Christ. 
From a religious terrorist to a Christian. 

How’s that for a complete change of​​ identity?  
If that can happen to a him, I promise it can happen to anyone reading this devotion.

Trusting Christ means believing with our minds what the Bible tells us who Jesus is. 
He’s the Son of God. 

It involves believing that He died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead. 
That’s all-important, but believing that with our minds doesn’t make us Christians. 

It is an essential part, but true belief is also entrusting our hearts and our lives to Christ completely. 
We want to follow Him. 

It’s a decision of the heart and of the mind.

Have you made that decision? 
Have you taken on a new identity as a follower of Jesus? 

He promises to give us a new identity, forever, when we trust in Him.

"Gospel from India" 

What then? 

​“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life..” John 3:16. ​​John 3:16 is One of the most familiar, if not THE most familiar verse in the Bible. 
It’s the entire gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ, summed up in one sentence: 
God loves us. 

God provided a Saviour in His Son, Jesus, but we must put our complete trust and faith in Him. 
By doing so, we can enjoy abundant life spent with our Creator God, both now in this life and in Heaven for all eternity.

But if we don’t place our full trust and faith in what Jesus has done for us on the cross, ​​what then? 

We must understand that there still is an eternity to be spent. 
For those who don’t choose Christ, that eternity is Hell, a place of everlasting separation from God. 
It’s a place of torment, anguish, and punishment. 

Daniel 12:2 says it’s a place of “disgrace and everlasting contempt.” 
Revelation 14:11 speaks of having no rest forever and ever.

The God of Heaven and Earth, the Creator of this Universe and all that is in it, gives each of us a choice. 

It’s a choice of eternal life with Him. 
No one else can choose that eternity for us.

It’s a personal choice. 
God’s love is so great that He gave us His own Son, Jesus, to deliver us from the fate of our sin and make our eternity secure. But the choice is yours and mine alone.

Eternity is certainly a bigger concept than any of us can fully grasp. 
God in His love for us, offers His Holy Spirit to help us understand our need for Him and to envelop us with His peace as that relationship is secure. 

Reach out to Him. 
Trust Him. 

God is who He says He is and He will save you for eternity!

​Rat race!
​"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."  Matthew 11:29.

How do you find the possibility of freedom and peace in a world where there seems to be no rest? 

The idea that the pace of life seems to continually increase stress and worry is a universal concept. 
There seems to be no end to the demands on our time and energy.

It isn’t one that offers escape from the demands of life, but one that guarantees rest in the midst of the ​​rat race and the fast pace of life. 
Jesus says, “Come to me if you are tired and burdened. I’ll make your load lighter, and help you carry your burden.”

Jesus offers us rest amidst the stress.

Christ doesn’t always take us out of life’s demanding situations. 
Instead, He asks us to let HIM show us how to handle life’s demands.. 

Jesus wants us to face each day and each challenge with HIM. 
Walk with Jesus Christ daily and trust Him for guidance and wisdom to handle whatever comes next.  

In this way, you’ll finally experience true rest amidst the stress of life

Gospel for Asia
W​e all struggle!

​“To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.” 1 Corinthians 9: 22.
What does it mean to be weak? 

The weakness Paul is referring to is more than just a physical weakness – but a moral and emotional weakness. 
Here Paul is talking about our struggles and our vulnerability.

The very worst thing Christians can do is to appear as though they’ve got it all together. 
Even the strongest Christian has weaknesses and struggles. 

Maybe it’s a moral struggle with lust or pornography; maybe it’s an emotional struggle overwhelmed by fear, anxiety or depression. 
If we’re honest, we all struggle in one way or another.

Paul is saying that by acknowledging our weaknesses, we can point to God as the source of our strength. 
This vulnerability removes any judgement someone might feel due to their own struggles. 

Instead, you are meeting them where they are, as an equal – even if your particular areas of weakness differ. 
It’s in those moments of honest, real, vulnerability that provide opportunities to share how God’s strength got us through.

We all struggle; the only difference is that a follower of Jesus can cling to God’s supernatural strength when he or she does. 
It’s a gift that comes with giving our hearts and lives to Jesus. 

So when it comes to your weaknesses, will you be vulnerable enough to admit your struggles? 
Because it’s in our weakness that God’s strength shines.

THAT is the message we want to share with those who are struggling: 
It’s not about me, but what God does though me.

Born again!

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16.
In today’s passage, the Lord instructs Nicodemus that no one can enter into the kingdom of God unless he is first “born again.” 

Jesus gave the term a spiritual meaning that may be familiar to us today, but Nicodemus didn't understand. 

“How can a man be born when he is old?” he asked. “He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” John 3:4.

Though he was a Pharisee and a teacher, Nicodemus found it hard to grasp what Jesus was describing. 
And I suspect many people—including believers as well as unbelievers—don’t truly comprehend the concept any better today.

So let’s take the time to understand this important idea.

“Born again” is an apt description of what it means to trust Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. 
Our lives are not changed when we enter into a relationship with Christ; rather, our old lives are effectively ended, and we are completely reborn in the Spirit.

Therefore, it makes perfect sense to say that we are “born again.” 
It means that we are no longer who we once were in sin. 
Rather, we are a new creation that exists to glorify God. 2 Cor. 5:17.

Does your life in Christ reflect the glory of God?
Or are you still clinging to your old ways of living? 

It is important to understand that the Lord does not simply want to change you; instead, He wants to remake you—there’s a big difference. 

As you pray today, ask for the courage to surrender to God and to live a life that proclaims your old self has died. 
He desires to make you new!​




How do we respond? 

"People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God." 2 Timothy 3:2-4.

The Bible gives many examples of signs that will warn us of the coming end of the age. 

Six such signs are given by Jesus, two characteristics are given by Paul, and eleven other occurrences are given by the prophets – signs that should occur prior to or soon after the end of the age. 

While we are also told we will not know the exact time of the End-
God obviously wanted us to be aware when the time was getting closer. 

As the Christian church is increasingly drawn into the interfaith movement, and as more and more churches go into isolation, preparing to sleep through the growing attacks on their faith, perhaps God knew it would take a few signs to wake us up and remind us that we have work to do.

So, let’s imagine a time in history when, “People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unloving, slanderous, without self-control, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding to a form of godliness, but denying its power.” 

What a description of many inside and outside of today’s churches.

Does this sound like today’s world or not? 
So, when were these words penned? 

Around 2,000 years ago in the Word of God. 
This prediction was prefaced with these haunting words: 
“But mark this: ‘These will be terrible times in the last days.'”

Sounds like we’re there.

So, ​​how do we respond? 

God’s Word says, “the Scriptures are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.” 

So, study God’s Word. 
Believe what it says about how to be saved from ungodly character. 
Live what it says, for we all are running out of time.​​

"Gospel from India" 
​​Exemplary father!

We look toward Father's Day tomorrow.
I pray you will make it your goal to become the best father you can possibly be. 

The Bible says, "Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him." Psalm 127:3.

How can you be a good father to them? 

First, love them -- and let them know you love them. 
That doesn't mean you give them anything they want or let them do anything they want to do; love sometimes says "No". 

But it does mean you'll seek what is best for them, and will be willing to sacrifice your time and energy to make it 

happen. 
It means you'll also keep them from anything that might harm them -- not just physically, but morally and spiritually.

Then be an example to them -- an example of honesty and integrity, as well as compassion and concern for others. 

Be an example to them also in your speech, and in your goals in life. 
The Bible says, "In everything set them an example by doing what is good." Titus 2:7.

Most of all, be an example to them of what it means to follow Jesus Christ. 

Make sure of your own commitment to Christ-
- and then ask God to help you point your sons to Him. 

Young people today face enormous pressures, and more than ever they need fathers who won't only help them resist them, but 

will help them become the men and women God wants them to be

"Gospel from India"
An anchor

It might surprise you to discover that one of the Gospels that tells us about the resurrection of Jesus from the dead was written by Luke,who was a medical doctor.
If anyone knew from personal experience that dead people didn't come back to life, it was Luke.
And yet he was absolutely convinced the words of Peter he later recorded were true: "God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact." Acts 2:32.
In fact, the Bible says hundreds saw Jesus after His resurrection-- including more than 500 at one time.1 Corinthians 15:3-8.
Years later, those witnesses were still bearing testimony to the reality of Jesus' resurrection.
Not only that, but they were willing to die for their belief.
People don't willingly die for what they know is a lie, but they were-- because they knew beyond doubt that God had raised Jesus from the dead.
They knew too that His resurrection proved death and Satan had been conquered-- and eternal life is available to all who put their faith and trust in Christ.
This Easter I invite you to take a new path in life- Christ's path.
He alone gives us hope--hope for God's presence now, -and hope for life beyond the grave.
God raised Him from the dead-- and because of that "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul." Hebrews 6:19.

"Gospel from India
It was at the cross...

"Thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Corinthians 15:57.
I heard about a man who tried to start his own religion but soon found that it didn't go so well.
He decided to approach the French statesman Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-érigord and ask him what he should do to gain converts. The statesman told him, "I recommend that you get yourself crucified, die, and then rise again on the third day."
Jesus' death on the cross and His resurrection on the third day is the cornerstone of the Christian faith. It is what sets our faith as Christians apart from the faith of all others.
Yet many view Christ's crucifixion as a rude interruption of what was an otherwise successful ministry. But the cross was at the forefront of the mind of Jesus Christ from the very beginning.
This is where He knew He was headed, and He spoke of it often.
The Bible even tells us that before He even came to this earth, a decision was made that He would ultimately go to the cross. Scripture calls Him "the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." Revelation 13:8.
It was at the cross that the righteous demands of God were satisfied. It was at the cross that God and humanity were reconciled once again. It was at the cross that a decisive blow was dealt against Satan and his minions. It was at the cross that our very salvation was purchased.
Therefore, we can't talk about the cross too much — or contemplate it too often.

​Hell​

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7: 13-14.
“Hell disappeared and no one noticed,” said church historian Martin Marty from the University of Chicago. 
And while the stereotyped “fire and brimstone” preachers may have disappeared, hell certainly has not. 

But –it’s rarely discussed in modern religious circles. 

Why? 
Is it too uncomfortable? 
Too negative? 

Maybe it seems too exclusive in today’s politically correct, all-inclusive society. 
The fact is, Jesus spoke a lot about the afterlife and so should we.

Jesus was never one to avoid controversy.  
When Jesus said that few would enter heaven, it was a shocking statement. 

It might even surprise many people today. 
Because didn’t Jesus come to offer salvation to everyone – no matter their background or baggage? 

Yes, He did. 

In fact, it’s because He loves us that He talks about hell. 
He cares enough to tell us the truth, to warn us of the eternal consequences of missing out on an eternal relationship with God.

If this topic makes you uncomfortable, ask yourself one question: 
Is Jesus a liar or does He tell the Truth? 

Jesus not only tells the Truth, but He IS the Truth about the afterlife: 
Heaven and Hell. 

I realize the overwhelming majority of people, even Christians, don’t really believe their kind neighbour and coworker is going to spend eternity separated from God. 

But Jesus says that hell is very real. 
It has not disappeared, but it’s out of love for us that Jesus came to offer us another way. 

It’s referred to as salvation, because it’s through Jesus Christ that we are saved from this fate. 

Salvation is available for each and every person– we just have to accept it, by trusting in Him through repentant faith.

So what will it be? 
If you were to die today, where would you go? 

Don’t miss out on an eternal relationship with God (Heaven) versus an eternity separated from God (Hell). 

Accept the gift of salvation and walk in confidence knowing that you have been saved by the grace and love of Jesus Christ who died on the cross in your place.

Three tests! GospelforAsia

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8.

How can you tell whether or not you have the true gospel? 

Paul gives you three tests.

First-
- the source of the gospel. 

Where did it come from? 
God gave it. 

It is direct and divine revelation. 
The gospel is authenticated by its source.

Secondly-
- by its salvation. 

Any gospel that is not the gospel of grace is not the true gospel. 

You can’t beg it. 
You can’t buy it. 
You can’t borrow it. 
You can’t steal it. 
You can’t earn it. 

It was bought by Christ on the cross. 
It is the supernatural work of God.

The third test is its subject. 

It is the grace of Christ. 
Jesus is the subject. 

From Genesis to Revelation-
- the Bible is all about Jesus.

Take an hour or two this week and find the prophecies about Jesus in the book of Isaiah. 

Take comfort in knowing that Jesus is the One-
- Who was, 
- Who is, and 
- Who is to come!

Gospel from India
The solid rock I stand

"Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone. In Him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord." Ephesians 2:19-21.

I have read that the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy was built from 1173 to 1372. 

This 12-story, solid marble structure began to lean even before it was completed. 

Quite significantly, the word "pisa" means "marshy land," which gives some clue as to why—after the first three stories were completed, the ground underneath the tower began to sink. 

Also, its foundation was only 10 feet deep! 
Scientists have now been working to keep this massive structure in place. 

They reported that the tower had been moving one-twentieth of an inch each year-
- Unless scientists and engineers could fix the foundation, in time this tower would eventually collapse.

It goes without saying that no building is any stronger or surer than its foundation.

Compare the tower of Pisa with its ten-foot foundation, to the foundations of the great European cathedrals. 

Some of these foundations go down as far as forty or fifty feet. 
In some instances, they form a mass of stone below the ground as great as that of the visible building above the ground. 

To build a great life is like building a great cathedral. 
You start with a sure foundation.

And there is no greater foundation to build our life on than Christ Jesus-
- the solid rock and cornerstone of God's kingdom, 
- which brings to mind the old hymn we used to sing as kids: 

"On Christ the solid rock I stand, All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand." 

Pity we don't teach many of these old hymns to our kids today along with the new praise choruses.    

"Dear God, I thank You that Jesus Christ is the living foundation of Your Church and of Your Kingdom. Help me to make Him the sure foundation of my life and of my family. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's Name, Amen."


SONshineby "Gospel from India"
I recently read that the winds we typically experience are the result of atmospheric instability caused by increasingly strong sunshine. 

Could this also be true spiritually? 
Could the winds of adversity and instability, pain and pressure, sickness and weariness, be caused by an increasingly strong SONshine? 

Could God be shining the light of His truth, His presence, His power, His peace more brightly, so that in contrast to our circumstances we are compelled to look up … and cry out to Him?

What “wind” has been blowing in your life? 
The life of your loved one? 
The life of our nation and our world? 

Could God be using the winds to get our attention so that we focus once again on the God of Creation? 

If He could transform Planet Earth in the beginning, He can transform our lives, our nation and our world. 
His power has not been diminished nor diluted over the ages. 

It’s time to look up-
- and be thankful for the Wind that has gotten our attention.

"Dear God, thank You for the winds You bring into my life to get my attention. Today I bring my every need to You because I know You are in control and You can help me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen."

Gospel for India
Full expression!

"The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. Colossians 1:15.

Who is this Jesus? 

It’s a question that has been asked by countless individuals for more than two millennia. 
And, to be sure, it is the most important question that can ever be asked—or answered. 

How would you reply?

You may say, “He’s my Saviour.” 

But is He more? 

“Well, He’s the Lord.” 

But is He more?

Yes, He is far more indeed. 

Jesus did something for us that had never been done before: 
He enabled us to see the Father in a new way. 

In Colossians 1:15, Paul explains that Jesus is the “image of the invisible God.”

No one has ever looked upon the face of the Almighty. 

In the Old Testament, some people found themselves in His presence.
But they were never able to look fully upon His glory. 

For example, even Moses, who is described as God’s friend, could not look directly at Him. 
At best, he had the opportunity to look upon “God’s back” as the Lord passed by. Ex.33:11.

But Moses never saw His face. vs. 18-23.

However, Jesus came to bridge the gap between the Father’s pure, holy glory and mankind’s sinful nature. 

As God’s “image,” Jesus is the exact, flawless replica—the perfect reflection—of His Father. 
Therefore, Jesus could say, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father..” John 14:9.

How do we know what the heavenly Father is like? 
By knowing Jesus. 

He is the only full expression and explanation of God. 

Now are you prepared to answer the question? 
Then ask the Father to reveal His Son to you in a fresh way today.



Emptiness

The cry of emptiness rings from both the bleakest ghetto and the ritziest mansion. 
The same echo of a meaningless life reverberates at the downtown bar and the country club. 

There are senior citizens, middle-aged men and women, and teens with equally hollow hearts, for which no medical prescription exists.

The Samaritan woman at the well symbolizes millions throughout time who have given their best efforts to satisfy the yearning for love and completion. 

Until a person tastes the Lord’s love-
- the sense of emptiness cannot be permanently satisfied. 

We were created to honour and glorify God-
- no other act of adoration—whether toward the opposite sex, worldly position, work, or money—can bring a sense of long-term pleasure and purpose.

No wonder the Samaritan woman eagerly accepted Jesus’ offer of a drink that would quench her thirst forever. John 4:15.

The promise of salvation includes more than the elimination of guilt: 

When someone trusts Christ as Saviour-
- the Holy Spirit indwells the new believer and expresses divine love to and through him or her. 

If we’re willing to acknowledge Christ’s death on our behalf and ask His forgiveness for our sins, which put Him on the cross, then we can experience the overflow of God’s love filling our emptiness.

The believer who feels hollow must honestly confess any sin harbored in the heart. 
Wrongdoing and idolatry block fellowship with the Father, but repentance breaks the dam. 

The only fulfillment for an empty life is God’s freely offered love

​The only way!
Thu Mar 7, 2019 
 "Gospel from India" 
​The only way!

The message of Jesus Christ, our Saviour-
- is the story of the Bible;
- is the story of salvation; 
- is the story of the Gospel; 
- is the story of life, peace, eternity and Heaven. 

The whole world ought to know the story of the Bible.

If this Gospel is hidden today from anyone reading these words-
- it is hidden because you have never opened your Bible or you have opened it with a closed mind.

The story of the Scriptures is the story of your redemption and mine through Jesus Christ. 
The Scriptures teach the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. Jesus Christ is the Gospel. 
His death, burial and resurrection is the Gospel story, and without Him you are lost and doomed.

The Bible teaches that there is a hell and a Heaven. 
The way to Heaven is by receiving and trusting Jesus Christ. 

The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God​.​” Romans 3:23. 
The Bible says, “The wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23. 
The Bible says, “The soul who sins shall die.” Ezekiel 18:20.

And the Bible says​​ the only way to bridge the gap between us and God is through Christ. 
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6.

Today you can accept the Christ of the Bible. 
You can know peace of soul, peace of conscience and peace of mind by letting Him come into your heart by faith. 

Will you now, as you read these words, open your heart to Christ?

"Dear God, thank You for the Good News of the Bible, that through it we find our way to You. Thank You that in its pages we can see Jesus and we can have peace. In Jesus’ Name. Amen."

The cover-up!   Gospel from Asia

The story of David is well-known.

He committed adultery with Bathsheba. 
She became pregnant, and then he had Bathsheba’s husband, Uriah, killed.

David thought for a while that his sin was covered, that he had done what he needed to do to get out of this mess and salvage his reputation. ​​
​​The cover-up didn’t work very well. It never does..

Psalm 51 is David’s prayer of confession before God as he spills out his heart, and Psalm 32 is the Psalm that David also prayed, most probably in connection with Bathsheba, as he thanked God for His forgiveness.

The one thing that is most difficult for us is to simply be honest with God and say, “All the closets of my life are now open to You. Everything is exposed. Nothing is hidden from Your sight. You know it’s there, and now I am acknowledging it is there, too.”

When we acknowledge our sin-
- we can walk in freedom. 

Charles Wesley put it this way: 
“My chains fell off, my heart was free. 
I rose, went forth and followed Thee.” 

David says it like this: 
“Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity and in whose spirit there is no deceit.” Psalm 32:1–2.

Come to Jesus today and say-
“Here I am, exposed in Your presence.” Begin there, and then go to those whom you have wronged and say, “At all costs, I want to be right before God and man.”

"Dear God, my heart is open to You. I know that You see my sin, and that You love me and will forgive me. Please free me from sin’s burden and guilt and make my heart clean before You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen."​======================================

"Gospel from India" 
The prodigal


“There was a man who had two sons. The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.” Luke 15: 11-12.

One of Jesus’ most famous parables is the story of a man who had two sons. 

His youngest son was fed up with the day to day lifestyle of living at home under Dad’s rules.  

One day, he decided to take his share of his inheritance and head off to the big city. 
In other words, this son wanted the benefits of his dad, without his dad. 

Have you ever treated God this way? 
It’s the what can God do for me mentality.

Amazingly, the father in the story agreed and gave him his share of the inheritance. 

Without a word, the son packed his things and left home. 
Pretty soon, his partying lifestyle got the best of him and all his money dried up. 

Out of options and with nowhere left to turn, this son came crawling back home. 

Acutely aware of how badly he had messed up-
- he begged his father for forgiveness and the chance to simply work on the estate. 

The role of son? 
No way! 

He knew he didn’t have the right to ask that after turning his back on his father and his family.

It’s easy to judge this young, arrogant, and entitled son. 
He doesn’t even deserve a job on his father’s estate – and yet, the power of this story is in the father’s response. 

In a culture where honour and shame is everything, the outright disrespect the son showed his father would justify the father sending the son away without a second thought.  

And yet the father ​ran to greet his son with joy. 
He dressed him in the best clothes and threw a giant party. 

Why? 
Because his youngest son, ​​this prodigal son, had come home.

Jesus uses this story to paint a very clear picture of repentant faith.  

In other words, Jesus is talking about recognizing our own sins and turning back towards God, our heavenly Father. 
It’s about receiving God’s abundant love and grace in spite of our sin and shame. 

We definitely don’t deserve it, but like the father in the story-
God is ready and waiting if we will only return home.

 "Gospel from India" 
Love is of God

"Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 1 John 4:7.

It’s that time of year when stores are filled with beautiful red hearts, chocolates, balloons, greeting cards and all kinds of things that say, “You’re beautiful and I love you.” 

You ask a man how he fell in love with his wife or girlfriend and most every response will begin this way: 
“I saw her.”

All women want to feel beautiful. 
All wives want to feel their husbands see them as beautiful, and it is true that men are drawn to beauty. 

This is why women focus so much on fashion and good looks. 
Obviously, making the most of natural beauty is important, but don’t miss the true secret to a radiant, lasting beauty that comes from knowing Jesus. 

It’s unmistakable, the beauty on the face of an older woman who loves her Lord.

But that’s not all. 
Love isn’t just for romance. 

Even if you don’t have a sweetheart this Valentine’s Day-
- perhaps you can think of someone who could benefit from an expression of love from you. 

Just think, there may be someone in your life who won’t be hugged or told someone loves him or her if you don’t take the initiative.

Lastly, but most importantly-
I want to tell the Saviour of my soul, the Maker of my heart and the Creator of love itself that I love Him.

GOSPEL FROM ASIA Empty Re: GOSPEL FROM ASIA

Three categories
:
 "Gospel from India" 


"But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." John 20:30-31.
People’s attitudes toward Jesus Christ tend to fall into three categories. 

First, there are some who don’t believe He is God. 
They reject, diminish, or ignore His character and lifesaving work, claiming He was simply a good person. 

Second, there are some who intellectually acknowledge Jesus is God’s Son but have no personal relationship with Him. 

Third, true followers believe Christ is Saviour. Rom. 10:9. 
Through genuine faith, believers are made part of His family.

Ephesians 2:1-2 says that before salvation-
- we all are spiritually dead and living according to our sin nature. 

Those who don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus remain in that state. 

But when a person places faith in Him, spiritual birth takes place; he or she is made alive in Christ and becomes a new creation who is no longer to live according to the flesh. John 3:3; Eph. 2:5; 4:24.

Our position in the Lord affects everything about us-- attitudes, emotions, conversation, and conduct. 
The ungodliness of our culture no longer fits who we are. 
As believers, we are to grow in Christlikeness, embracing ideas, thought patterns, and activities that please God, while rejecting all others.

Jesus is the perfect God-man, who willingly took our sins upon Himself and experienced divine wrath in our place. 

God accepted His death as full payment for our sins, and He raised Jesus from the dead to a position of divine glory. Eph. 1:20. 

His Spirit now lives within us. 
So understand who Jesus Christ is, and let that knowledge strengthen your commitment to be like Him
