"Gospel from India" 
God–given goals

“We ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.” Hebrews 2:1.

Have you ever written some God–given goals to keep you from being a drifter? 

Without goals, you’re a ship without a rudder, a compass, a sail and an anchor. 

What kind of ship is that? 
One that is doomed to failure. 

Most people don’t plan to fail. 
They simply don’t plan. 

How can you tell whether or not your goal is a God–given goal? 

First, have you prayed over it and asked for God’s blessing? 
Second, does it create in you enough spiritual enthusiasm and excitement to see it fulfilled? 
Third, does it demand the very best in you? 
Fourth, does it touch every area of your life? 

There is no area of your life that is out–of–bounds from God.

Take time today—or surely this week—to write down some goals and even a mission statement focused on the following areas of your life: 
Spiritual, physical, relational, intellectual, and financial

GospelfromAsia
Grace! 
Christians often speak about grace with a thousand qualifications. 

They add all sorts of buts and brakes. 

Listen for them! 
Our greatest concern, it seems, is that people will take advantage of grace and use it as a justification to live licentiously. 

Sadly, while attacks on morality typically come from outside the church-
- attacks on grace typically come from inside the church. 

The reason is because somewhere along the way-
- we’ve come to believe that this whole enterprise is about behavioural modification, 
- and grace just doesn’t possess the teeth to scare us into changing, 
- so we end up hearing more about what grace isn’t than we do about what grace is.

Where disobedience flourishes-
- it is not the fault of too much grace 
- but rather of our failure to grasp the depth of God’s one-way love for us in the midst of our transgressions. 

Grace refuses to be controlled by our innate sense of fairness, reciprocity and evenhandedness. 
It defies logic. 

It has nothing to do with earning, merit or deservedness. 
Grace is unconditional acceptance given to an undeserving person by an unobligated giver. 

It is one-way love.

But while grace does not demand payment in return-
- it does something fantastic: 

It inspires the very things that the law demands. 
The law prescribes good works, but only grace can produce them. 

It’s only grace that can change a heart and produce law-fulfilling works of mercy and selfless acts of service to our neighbour.


​​ The antidote! by "Gospel from India" 

Guilt can be like a poison working insidiously on the inside to create havoc in our thoughts and emotions. 
The antidote is to understand why we feel guilty and to know how to apply scriptural teachings on the subject.

Misunderstanding grace results in guilty feelings, which make us think that in order to be a “good” Christian, we must clean up our act ourselves. 

In contrast, the message of grace is this: 

At the cross, Jesus paid our sin debt in full and declared us righteous in His sight. 
We do not have to measure up; through Christ, we have been made acceptable exactly as we are.

Another thing that can make us feel guilty is confusion about confession and forgiveness. 

Some believers are concerned about hidden sins that they haven’t yet identified; others worry about whether they’ve confessed enough to be forgiven. 

It is true that 1 John 1:9 tells us to confess our wrongdoing, but doing so is not what makes us forgiven. 
It is what Jesus did at Calvary that provides forgiveness of all our sins.

Refusing to let go of the past can also produce guilty emotions, because some of us feel undeserving of forgiveness—knowing what sins we have committed can lead to an ongoing sense of shame. 

Jesus Christ died on the cross so that all our sins—past, present, and future—could be forgiven. 
This is part of the miracle of grace.

The truth of God’s Word frees us from the prison of false guilt and allows us to live life His way. 

Are you walking in freedom?

Post  Admin on Wed 31 Oct 2018, 9:30 pm

It’s a choice!

Do you hear His voice today-- beckoning, “Come, return”? 
Turning to God means . . .

1. Recognizing. 
The first part of turning is recognizing that behaviors rigorously rationalized are the real issues in your heart. 
What has to go? 

As you let God shine His light on your activities and inner thoughts, you’ll realize, “This is wrong or harmful to me and to those I love." 

I recognize this for what it is: 
Sin. 

That used to be attractive, but it repulses me now.
Sin is a barrier to returning, and we have to open our eyes and see clearly..

. Repenting. 
When you see what got you where you are, you don’t want it anymore. 
You’re ready to be honest with yourself and with God. 

“I’m wrong, God. I’m sorry for what I’ve done. I have no excuse for my choices. I’m unworthy, I’m undeserving, but I’m returning.” 

There is no downpour of mercy without returning, and there is no returning without repentance.



. Returning. 
If you want to experience the downpour, then you have to come back. 

This is not just an emotional response or flippant change of mind; it’s also an exertion of your will to get moving again in the right direction. 

It’s a choice: 
“I’m leaving this sin behind. I don’t want this anymore. 
I’m not hanging around that temptation.I’m shutting it off and moving away. 
I’m returning to the Lord. 

I want what God has for me-- first, most, and best.Amen


Hope!

“Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.” Romans 8:18.

It doesn’t take long to become fearful and hopeless looking at the current state of the world. 

Wars, economic uncertainty, terrorism...
It seems to be unending. 

In light of it all, Paul’s statement about current suffering paling when compared to God’s glory seems almost – naïve. 
Counter intuitive? 
Absolutely. 

Certainly this is counter cultural when held up to world headlines today.  
So what do we do with such a radical statement?

Let me start by saying-
I believe with all my heart that the Gospel is the greatest message of hope anyone could ever encounter. 

To understand the hope of the Gospel-
- we must look beyond our current life and circumstance. 

This requires viewing life through the lens of faith. 
And Paul’s statement of hope requires faith.

So, when the sufferings and groaning of the world appear too much, where do you place your hope? 

If our hope is in this life, we will find ourselves stuck in hopelessness and despair. 
If our hope is in this life, Christians should be pitied above all others because the foundation of our faith is built upon an eternal Saviour who is coming to make all things new- a hope bigger than this world.

But, if our hope is in the One who is eternal-
- if our hope is in the One who is coming to make all things new, 
- then we can confidently say in any circumstance: 
“What we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later!”

Life’s struggles invite us to discover where we place our hope. 

What about you? 
Where is your hope? 

No matter how miserable present circumstances appear-
- you really can believe the best is yet to come. 

Jesus Christ offers you this hope. 
You just have to believe it.


Gracious provision

​"God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." John 3:17.

Do you know someone who maintains that a loving God would never send anyone to hell? 
That a loving God will let everyone into heaven? 

Ask Noah! 

He was there when God shut the door of the ark. 
And although technically God doesn’t send anyone to hell, you and I are condemned to go there if we refuse to enter through the “door” of the Cross into the safety of the “ark,” which is Christ.

God didn’t want anyone to perish. 
He wanted all to repent of their sins and rebellion and enter into the safety of the ark. 

But the people refused.

The God who saved Noah from His judgment by providing an ark is the same God Who so loved the world that He sent His only Son as an Ark-a hiding place from the storm of God’s wrath. 

Whosoever believes in Jesus as God’s ​​gracious provision for salvation-
- will not perish or come under God’s judgment 
- but will be saved and receive eternal life. 

But you have to believe or you will perish.

"Gospel from India" 
Lord of all

“Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power…” 
Romans 1:3-4. 
May I ask you a personal question? 

Do you believe that Jesus Christ is Lord? 
You do? 

Then may I ask you another question? 
Is He your Lord?
 
Let’s be more specific.

    Is He Lord of your tongue?
    Is He Lord of your time?
    Is He Lord of your treasure?
    Is He Lord of your talents?
    Is He Lord of your testimony?
     
Is He truly Lord? 
Is He Lord in deed as well as word?

Now, don’t answer too quickly.
 
Think about it: 
It’s one thing to sing “Bring forth the royal diadem and crown Him Lord of all.” 
It’s another thing to mean it. 

Crown Him “Lord of all” in your life today



Call upon the Counsellor!

“But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.”1 Corinthians 1:24. 
Have you needed a counsellor at times? 

People come to pastors and counsellors for wisdom. 
We can counsel from Scripture, but we can’t solve their problems.
 
We can try to lead them to the One who can solve their problems, the Lord Jesus Christ. 

I don’t want them dependent upon me. 
I want them to know Jesus. 

He is the Counsellor. 
There is wisdom in His name. 

Paul says in 1 Corinthians1:30-
He “is made unto us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.”
 
Are you going through a problem right now? 
You don’t know the way out. 
You don’t know what to do. 
Every answer seems wrong. 

I want to recommend my counsellor to you. 

Call upon the true Counsellor. 
His name is Jesus. 

Not only is there wonder in His name. 
There is wisdom in His name


Dear Jesus, I need You!

“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:1.

I was trying to witness to a man one time. 
I knew him well. 

He was what you would call a self-made man, pretty comfortable in his status in life. 
He was standing in front of his house. 

We had a friendly conversation, but when I broached the subject of Jesus he said, “Oh, I’m fine. I’m fine like I am. You see that house? It’s paid for. There’s my wife on the inside. She loves me and I love her. I have my retirement income. I’m doing quite well, thank you.”

I said, “Sir, may I ask you a question?” 

“Well, sure,” he answered. 

I said, “Oh no, don’t say that lightly. I want to ask you a question, and I want you to think about it and answer me honestly. Will you?” 

He said, “Of course.” 

I said, “Sir, do you have peace in your heart?” 

He said, “I told you, I’m fine.” 

I said, “No, you said you would answer the question. Now answer it. Do you have peace in your heart?”

His chin began to quiver and his eyes brimmed with tears. 
He said, “No! I don’t have peace. How did you know?” 

I said, “Because the Bible says ‘There is no peace, said my God, to the wicked.’”

The only real peace you will ever know is found in the wonderful name of Jesus.

Do you have peace with God? 

If you don’t know the Lord Jesus Christ-
I want to invite you to pray a prayer like this: 

“Dear Jesus, I need You. 
I’m a sinner. 
I’m lost I don’t want to die in my sin and go to hell. 
I need You, Jesus. 
I trust You, Jesus. 
I believe You’re the Son of God. 
You paid for my sin debt with Your shed blood on the cross. 
Thank You, Lord, for doing that. 
Thank You for saving me. 
Now give me the courage to make it public. 
In Your name I pray, Amen.”

Gospel from India 
In 1829 George Wilson was adjudicated guilty and given the death sentence for murder. 

But Wilson had some friends who petitioned President Andrew Jackson for a pardon.
 
Jackson granted the pardon, and it was brought to prison and given to Wilson. 

To everyone’s surprise, Wilson said, “I am going to hang.”
 
There had never been a refusal to a pardon-
- so the courts didn’t know what to do. 

Discussion went all the way to the Supreme Court, and Justice John Marshall gave this ruling: 

“A pardon is a piece of paper, the value of which depends upon the acceptance by the person implicated. If he does not accept the pardon, then he must be executed.”
 
God loves you and wants to pardon you-
- but if you refuse Him, 
- you will die and go to hell. 

Cast yourself upon Him completely-
- and receive the free gift of His forgiveness today.
 
Have you repented of your sin and believed upon the atoning work of Christ’s blood on the cross? 
Being good doesn’t get you to heaven. 
It is only Jesus

Gospel from Asia

New dimension!

Humanity has always been dexterous at confusing evil with good. That was Adam and Eve’s problem, and it is our problem today.
Someone has said: “A wrong deed is right if the majority of people declare it not to be wrong.” 
By this principle we can see our standards shifting from year to year according to the popular vote! 
The Bible says: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.” 
God has not changed. His standards have not been lowered. God still calls immorality a sin, and the Bible says God is going to judge it.
Before his conversion, the Apostle Paul saw Christ as the greatest evil and breathed out “threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord..” Acts 9:1. 
But after he encountered Christ on the Damascus Road, he loved what he had so fervently hated. According to Acts 9:18, “there fell from his eyes something like scales.”
Christ can do the same for you. 
Jesus Christ is calling you out of a world of delusion and deception. Only if the scales fall from your eyes can you acknowledge Him as Lord.
Wherever you are, you can say yes to Christ, and your life’s values can be reversed. They can be changed until you call good good and evil evil. And your life can have a new dimension and a new power.
"Dear God, please remove the scales from our eyes so we can clearly see Your standard of what’s right and wrong. Thank You that the blood of Your Son Jesus can transform us into the person You want us to be. In Jesus’ Name. Amen."

Divine image!

"So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female." Genesis 1:27.
In previous centuries noblemen put their seals on all outgoing mail. 

A stamped seal proved the authenticity of the letter. 

In Genesis, God revealed that He created human beings “in His own image.” 
Thus God put His personal stamp on every human being.

We aren’t some happenstance of time, plus fate, plus chance. 
We’re not the product of some arbitrary, mechanistic evolutionary process. 

On the contrary, each of us is the personal, specific, creation of God-
- and we bear His distinctive sacred image, even though marred by the fall into sin.

Our uniqueness in God’s creation is a difference in kind, not degree, between human beings and the rest of creation. 
We should respect all of God’s creation, but we must reverence each human life. 

Each human bearing His divine image is of unique value to our Heavenly Father. 

God never created a nobody. 
Everybody is a somebody to God

"Gospel from India" 
What proof?

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1.

It’s amazing what we will and won’t allow ourselves to believe. 
For example:

We know that light travels 186,000 miles a second, even though we’ve personally never measured it.
A scientist can tell us that there are 100 trillion stars in the sky, and we accept it without question.
We accept as absolute fact that an atom has neutrons and electrons spinning around a nucleus, even though we have never seen any of them.
We agree that Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg Address, and that E does, in fact, equal MC².
We pride ourselves in being logical creatures who demand proof before believing most things. 

How is it, then, that we accept all these things as facts, without ever demanding the proof of their authenticity?
And why is it that so many of us will reject Jesus – risking our eternal souls, even when presented with solid proof? 

What proof, you may ask?

The witness of thousands of people who saw the miracles of Jesus!
Testimonies from dozens who witnessed His death, only to see Him alive after His resurrection.
The fulfillment of prophecies concerning Jesus. 

Even after being shown so much solid evidence, many enlightened people reject Jesus as “just some myth for the gullible.” In fact, the divinity of Jesus is just about the only thing people refuse to accept, even when evidence is overwhelming.

Where is the logic in that? 
Logic goes out the window when people talk about Jesus.

What about you? 
Are you willing to accept the truth of Jesus on faith? 

In fact, it’s the ONLY way you can accept Him. 
So, go ahead, take that leap of faith. 

Once you do-
- your life will be changed forever.

 "Gospel from India" 

Heart cry!

I once asked a university professor what he thought our greatest need was. 

He considered the question carefully before answering. 
He said, “I could give you a variety of answers all the way from tax relief to disarmament. But I believe that the greatest need we have at this hour is a spiritual awakening that will restore individual and collective morals and integrity throughout the nation.”

The heart of the world is aching for peace, for reality and for God. 

The Prophet Habakkuk once stood in the midst of a people who had been showered with every conceivable blessing but who had lost their spiritual sanity, and he cried, “O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years!” Habakkuk 3:2. 

That is the heart cry of thousands of people everywhere. 
It is our greatest need.

“But how,” you may ask, “do we achieve renewal and revival? What are the steps to spiritual awakening?” 

First, there must be earnest prayer. 
Second, we must forsake our sins. 
Third, God must be real to us.

It is within our grasp. 
Will we rise to the challenge?

"Dear God, help me to live in a way that shows the world Your peace. Cause my heart to be burdened until revival springs up within me and spreads throughout my community and the world. In Jesus’ Name. Amen."

​ Unchanging!

The Bible says that certain things will never change. 

The laws of nature will not change. 

The fixed facts of the universe will not change. 

Also, spiritual laws will never change. 

The nature of God has not changed. 

In all these centuries He is still the same: 
“I am the Lord, I do not change.” Malachi 3:6. 

In James we read that “there is no variation or shadow of turning” with God. James 1:17.

God is unchanging in holiness. 
He is a holy God, a righteous God. 

He is unchanging in judgment. 
The Bible says, “The Lord will judge the ends of the earth.” 1 Samuel 2:10. 

And He is ​​unchanging in love. 
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8.

The Word of God, the Bible, has not changed. 
“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever,” wrote the Prophet Isaiah. Isaiah 40:8. 
In the Psalms we read, “Forever, O Lord, your word is settled in heaven.” Psalm 119:89.

And, finally, the way of salvation has not changed. 
Scripture says, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12. 

The way of salvation is still through Jesus at the cross and the resurrection. 
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6.

"Dear God, thank You that You are unchanging. Your love is unfailing, and You are always near. May we be Your ambassadors to this dark world, shining Your light to everyone we meet. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Two beginnings!

“And He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:18.

There are two beginnings in creation. 

The first beginning occurred when God created the heavens and the earth. 
He spoke and—just like that—from His fingertips flew this vast, measureless universe. 

How simple it was for God to create this universe.
 
The second beginning is when His creature, man, becomes a new creation in Christ.2 Corinthians 5:17. 

When God reconciled us through His Son-
- it took every drop of His blood. 

There was no other way to be saved apart from the death of Jesus—the perfect sacrifice.

None of us were here for the first Creation. 
But we can all be a part of the Second Creation! 

If you have received the salvation Jesus bought with His blood—
- thank Him that He’s made you a new creature…a second creation!

Gospel from India
What is salvation?
It is not a creed.

You’️re not saved by the plan of salvation.
You’️re saved by the person of salvation. 

It’️s not a code. 

You say, “Well, I believe if you live right you’️ll go to heaven.†
If you could be saved by living right, then Calvary was a blunder.

It’️s not a cause. 

You say, “I’️m a member of a good, fundamental, Bible believing church.†
It’️s not any of these things.

It’️s Christ. 

Salvation is not believing something.
It is receiving Someone.

The true gospel is one that centers in Jesus Christ.

Ask God to give you a divine opportunity to boldly share Jesus with someone today.

Maybe it’️s a co-worker.
Maybe it’️s your child.
Maybe it’️s a stranger that sits next to you at a restaurant.

Be strong and of good courage.
God will go before you to prepare the way.

How will you respond?

“He that finds his life shall lose it: and he that loses his life for My sake shall find it.† Matthew 10:39.

We have nothing that God needs. 

Think about that. 

If I were to give God my riches-
- I couldn’️t make Him richer. 
He owns everything. 

If I were to give God my wisdom-
- I wouldn’️t make Him wiser. 
He is the all-wise God. 

If I were to give God my power-
- I couldn’️t make God more powerful. 
He is omnipotent.
 
God wants only one thing from His children-
- our hearts. 

If we pray to God without giving Him our heart, we are mocking Him. 
If we preach without giving God our hearts, we are preaching in ignorance.

God is saying to you today- “Give Me your heart.†

Beware!

“…and the sin which does so easily beset us...” Hebrews 12:1.

In this part of our verse-
Paul is no longer talking about good things that might become bad things.

Now he’s just talking about bad things.
The word beset means “to tangle you up.”

Can you imagine a person trying to run a race with a long flowing robe entangling him or some rope around his feet?
No, he wants to be free so he can run.

What is the sin that so easily trips us up?
Weights load us down; sin trips us up.

Either one can make you a poor runner and keep you from running the race.

In Hebrews 11 and 12, Paul is talking about faith.
The whole race we’re running is the race of faith.

Hebrews says we live by faith-
- therefore, we run by faith.

Most of us say, “I wish I had better faith, stronger faith.”

Do you know the reason you don’t have more faith than you have?
Sin!

You say, “Now wait a minute, pastor....”

No, friend, the Bible says, “Beware, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief.”

Unbelief is-
- not a mental sin;
- but is a moral sin.
It doesn’t come-
- out of the head;
- but out of the heart.
“Beware, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief.”

Status quo!

A little boy fell out of bed and was crying.

His mother came, picked him up, and said, “Honey, what’s wrong? How did you fall out of bed?”

He said, “Well, I guess I went to sleep too close to where I got in..”

I think there are a lot of people who have done exactly that.

They get into Christ and somehow they just seem to go to sleep right there.
They say, “I’m saved and that’s it.”

But friend, that’s not it!
It’s just the beginning of a relationship that will last through all eternity.

God wants to move you further into a knowledge of Himself.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not satisfied with the status quo of my life.
I want to go deep into the heart of Jesus.

I desire the same for you

"Gospel from India"
Complicated process?

"If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9.

Many people think receiving Christ is a ​​complicated process-
- but salvation requires only two things:
Belief and confession.

Believe in your heart that Jesus is who he said he was-
- and willingly share this truth with others.

Then you will know you are a Christian.

Millions of people through the centuries have proclaimed Jesus as Lord without following him personally.

They have declared Christ to be God without ever believing he could make a difference in their lives.

Their words were empty because what they said wasn't backed up by personal faith.

Sadly, words without faith are not enough.

Likewise, the Bible doesn't recognize Christians who are secret about it.
Believing that Jesus is alive and risen from the dead is only part of the equation.

According to Paul, true followers of Jesus will confess him before others.

Confessing Christ doesn't require eloquent speeches or theological training.

It simply requires acknowledging before others that we know Jesus, not only as Lord of all but as Lord and master over us personally.

In Paul's day, confessing Christ was dangerous business.
Today, however, we are free to declare our allegiance to Jesus in ways that Paul never could have imagined.

Christianity is a living faith, a combination of believing and confessing.

You can't get much clearer than Romans 10:9.

How can you make your faith more of a public confession?

Gospel from India
God demands

​We are all interested in truth, and Christ is the truth.

When you give yourself to Him-
He opens the doors of your mind in the most glorious way.

You see a new dimension of life that you have been previously blind to.

When you open yourself to Christ—to truth—your life lights up.
Your whole inner life glows, and there comes a peace and joy and security that only He can give.

So ​​God demands a decision, a commitment, a surrender, a conversion.

When you come to Christ, He gives you a freedom that is real:
“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” John 8:36.

"Dear Lord, thank You for paying the ultimate price on the cross for my freedom. It’s my heart’s desire to walk in the liberty You have paid for so dearly. I surrender all to You and I ask You to bring about the fullness of life that You desire for me. In Jesus' Name. Amen."

Surrender!

 “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36.
 
Living a pure life means surrendering to Jesus Christ. 

But some people don’t want to surrender because they say they want to be free. 

What if a train said, “I don’t want to run on these tracks, I want to be free”? 
Then off through the meadow it would go.
 
What if a kite said, “I want to be free. I don’t want to be tied to a string”? 
The string breaks and down it goes. 

What if a tree said, “I don’t want to be planted in the earth. I want to be free”? 
And it is jerked up from the earth and dies.
 
Everything that is truly free functions best- 
when it functions as God made it.
God made you to know Him and to love Him and to glorify HIM

"Gospel from India" 
​​ The four words

​“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.  And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.” Genesis 1: 1-3. 

Look at the stars. 

Try to count them. 
Impossible – right? 

Scientists believe the universe is made up of 27 million parts, EACH part having at least one galaxy. 
The number of stars? 
That would be over 300 sextillions – 300 with 23 zeros. 

Can you wrap you brain around the vastness and immensity of the universe? 
Probably not. 

In the same way, understanding the greatness of God is equally challenging. 
Yet, to begin to grasp the full picture of God, the true picture of God, we must look at this one God in three persons. 

The God who was at the beginning of it all.

In the beginning, God. 

​​These four words introduce us to God. 
No four words could be more important than these. 

God who has no beginning. 
God who always is, always was, and always will be. 
This concept is understandably difficult. 

After all, our world revolves around beginnings and endings.

Genesis, the first book of the Bible, is all about beginnings – things being created, things starting. 
The beginning of Israel, the Jewish people, the new beginning after the flood, and the beginning of mankind. 
Yet, before all of this, was God.

Then God created. 
God is described “in the beginning” as one God – three persons. 

We can see all three persons too. 
The earth was formless and void, chaotic. 

Imagine an artist in the early stages of a painting. 
The artist sees the final painting, but to the untrained eye it’s just a mess. 

We read that the Spirit of God was in the midst of this “chaos,” the original artist. 
Like the wind, we can’t see the Holy Spirit, but we can feel it.

Then there’s Jesus. 
“And God said, “Let there be light.” 
Look at the words: 

Then. 
God. 
Said. 
The Word of God, Jesus, creates. 
Jesus is called both the Word of God and the Light of the world. John 1:1-3;8:12.

Then there’s the Holy Spirit. 
The Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

Jesus always is, was and will be. 
The Holy Spirit always is, was and will be. 
God the Father always is, was and will be. 

God always is. 
Everything else begins. 

The greatness of God. 
It boggles the mind.



1 Victory party
 
"My Manna" 

"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows." Psalm 23:5.

Soldiers don't usually sit down for a picnic in the middle of a raging battlefield. 
They either fight to the death, or they turn and run!

But David painted a very different kind of battlefield scene-
- a picture of total security. 

In the midst of the worst onslaughts his enemies could dish out-
David found peace in God and a reason to celebrate. 

Others were trying to keep the crown from him-
- but they couldn't stop God from making him king.

Going through life's hardest battles can sometimes teach us the most about God. 

When our enemies are attacking us and we want to panic-
God gives us peace. 

He lays out a banquet to celebrate the victory that's already ours. 
He reminds us who we are in Christ: 
A royal treasure claimed by the King as his own.

When everything is going well-
- we might take God's presence for granted, 
- but when life is hard, we can often see his presence more clearly. 

That's because he gives us peace and cause for celebration in places where we'd expect only despair.

If you're experiencing some of the difficulties that life throws at you-
- look to see what God is doing. 

He hasn't gone anywhere. 
He's preparing a table for your ​​​​​​​​victory party-
- pouring out his blessings on you. 

You don't have to leave the battlefield to have your picnic-
- because God is with you,
- and your enemies can't intimidate him.

Habakkuk 3:17-19; 1 Peter 4:12-19

Self-emptied life!

You may be feeling incredibly lonely. 

Here is a practical pointer for overcoming your loneliness: 
Quit dwelling on it. 
Reach out and try to help someone who is lonely.

Luke 6:38 promises that when we give, it shall be given to us. 

There is a locked-in likeness to what we give. 
It is the law of the harvest. 

If you want friendship-, you must show yourself friendly.Proverbs 18:24.
Why don’t you keep a stack of cards and a pen handy to write a little note of encouragement to a shut-in? 

Get a prayer list and intercede for others. 

Travel around the world by means of prayer. 

There is no life so empty as a self-centered life-
- and there is no life so centered as a self-emptied life!

As you pour out yourself to others-
- the Holy Spirit will continually pour Himself into

"Gospel from India"
God’s purpose!

Those who know and follow God’s direction--will experience spiritual peace, joy, and contentment.
To discover our life’s purpose-
- the first step which makes all the other steps possible—is to receive Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour.

In other words-
- we must be saved.

Our part in salvation is to acknowledge we are sinners—to admit to God that we’ve lived in rebellion against Him because we wanted our own way. Rom. 3:23.

Professing our belief that Jesus’ death on the cross fully paid our sin debt, we ask God’s forgiveness.

Recognizing Jesus as personal Saviour and Lord-
- we commit our life to Him. Rom. 10:9; Gal. 2:20; 1 John 1:9.

Since He is now in charge-- our orders and direction will come from Him.
Having become part of God’s family-
- we have His Spirit to help us discover and carry out our Father’s plan.

God’s purpose for His children includes sanctification, stewardship, and service.

Sanctification describes continual growth in holiness.
The Holy Spirit, with our cooperation, will transform our character to be more like the Lord’s.

Stewardship means managing—according to God’s priorities-
- the time, talents, and treasure He has given us.
Service for the kingdom is to mark our life, as it marked the life of Jesus. Matt. 20:28.
We serve our Father by obediently ministering to others.

As we each seek the Lord’s specific plan for us-
- we can be confident that it will include character transformation, investment of our resources for His kingdom, and ministry to others.

Powerful witness! 


For her unwavering commitment to aiding those most in need-
Mother Teresa stands out as one of the greatest humanitarians of the 20th century. 

She combined profound empathy and a fervent commitment to her cause with incredible organizational and managerial skills that allowed her to develop a vast and effective international organization of missionaries to help impoverished citizens all across the globe.

She also had a keen sense of humour. 

When reminded that God does not give us any burdens we cannot handle-
Mother Teresa replied, "I know, but sometimes I just wish He didn't think so highly of me!" 

While it's true that tough times can challenge us and shape character-
- most of us would prefer that God would find another teaching method!

While hitting rock bottom is not fun, crises do offer opportunities for growth and service. 

For instance, sometimes God allows us to go through hard times so that we can learn to truly trust Him. 

When we do choose to trust God even when there is no concrete evidence of His presence-
- we demonstrate real faith. 

And that faith is not only demonstrated to God-
- it is a ​​powerful witness to everyone who sees what you have gone through. 

Look at the example shown by Joseph. 

After thirteen years of miserable setbacks-
- the first thing he did was to stand before Pharaoh and share the testimony of his faith in God. 

What a magnificent witness to the glory of God!

So, when facing tough times-
- recognize the opportunity you have to build trust in God, 
- deepen your faith, 
- and become a powerful witness for your Heavenly Father.

The gift!

​Several distinct blessings have been procured for us by the power of the blood of Jesus-
- and they are all included in this one word, redemption. 

Among these blessings, reconciliation takes the first place.

“God hath set forth Jesus to be a reconciliation through faith in His blood.” 

In all the work of Christ, and above all in reconciliation-
God’s object is the removal and destruction of sin.

God has offered a perfect acquittal from all our sin and guilt. 
And because reconciliation has been made for sin, we can now be reconciled to Him. 

“God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them.” 2 Corinthians 5:19. 

Following this word of reconciliation is the invitation-
“Be ye reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:20. 

Whoever receives reconciliation for sin is reconciled to God. 
He knows that all his sins are forgiven.

"Lord Jesus, thank You for being our salvation. 
We praise You for providing a way for us to be reconciled to our Heavenly Father. 
Please help us share Your​​ gift of salvation with a lost and hopeless world. 
In Jesus’ Name. Amen."

A divine mystery!

“According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.” Ephesians 1:4.
Did you know that God chose you before He laid the foundations of the earth? 
You talk about “old time religion”!  

Well, friend, you can’t get much older than that! 

Before there were any trees, mountains, birds, and bees-
God chose you to be one of His children. 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon said:
“God certainly must have chosen me before I came into this world because He never would have chosen me afterward.”

That means you and I cannot take credit for our salvation. 

First John 4:19 says, “We love Him, because He first loved us.” 

Somebody asked a little boy, “Have you found the Lord?” 
And the little boy said, “I didn’t know He was lost.” 

How miraculous that God has chosen us. 
When left alone to ourselves, we would never have chosen Him.
 
Though His love for us is a divine mystery-
- it can bring great assurance to a believer’s heart to know “He first loved us.”

Allow God’s Word to teach you further what it means to be chosen. 
Read Matthew 20:16, 24:22; Luke 10:20; John 6:37-39; Romans 8:28-39; 1 Corinthians 1:26-31; Ephesians 1:9-11; 2 Timothy

Of this I am sure​!​


"For You light my lamp; the Lord my God illumines my darkness." Psalm 18:28.

It's not surprising that adults are afraid of the dark. 

We are constantly bombarded with stories, movies and even the news, about awful things that happen at night. 

But why are children afraid of the dark? 
Maybe it's an innate fear of being left alone, feeling separated, vivid imaginations, or maybe, just shadows in the dark.

The fact is, children fear the dark for many of the same reasons adults do. 
It seems many fears intensify in the night,especially sleepless nights. 

But I have good news: 
God is with us wherever we go.

Listen to a portion of Psalm 139: 
"Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the Heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast."
Like a loving Father, God offers us a hand to hold in life's darkest hours. 
He'll carry all of us through the darkness, and lead us where we need to go.
Of this I am sure​!​

The only answer
 
“Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.” Psalm 31:24.
The world wants to know what we should do about the problems of the world. 
 
What about the overcrowded prisons? 
Poverty? 
Rape? 
Murder? 
 
Do you know why we never solve the problems? 
Because we don’t see the real problem.
 
The sociologist says it is just a cultural lag. 
The psychologist calls it an emotional disturbance. 
The philosopher calls it irrational behaviour. 
The communist calls it the human class struggle. 
The humanist calls it human weakness. 
The criminologist calls it anti-human conduct. 
 
The Bible calls it sin.
 
The only answer for sin is Jesus-
- Who expresses the love of God, 
- expounds the mind of God,
- and executes the will of God.
 
The problems of our world are beyond solution—apart from the Lord Jesus Christ. 
God moves in answer to our prayers. 
 
Your effectual, fervent prayer “availeth much.” James 5:16

Re-Defining God

​"If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also..." 
John 14:7.
A weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal ran an interesting article titled, "​​Re-Defining God"-
- about how so many in our modern world are re-defining who God is. 

One seminary professor said, "People seek out new gods the way they seek out new products in the marketplace." 

How would you describe God?

1. The first two of the Ten Commandments say there is but one God and no others. 
More than anything else, we need to get this right. 
God gets angry about worshiping false, man-made gods.

2. The best way to define God is through a man--Jesus. 
He is God's ultimate revelation of Himself.

How do you understand Jesus? 

The most authoritative word is the Bible. 
Scripture gives us the complete and full picture of Jesus. 
Otherwise, it's just somebody's opinion.

So how do you define God? Get to know the Jesus of Scripture. 
I promise, you will not be disappointed.
