: "Gospel from India" 
Human heart

"God, create a clean heart for me and renew a steadfast spirit within me." Psalm 51:10.
What is the biggest problem we face? 

Some would say ill health; others, lack of money; still others, uncertainty about the future or fear of dying. 

My own view is that the biggest problem with which human beings have to grapple is the problem of guilt. 
It is the most powerfully destructive force in the personality. 

We cannot live with guilt - that is, truly live.

When I was a young Christian-
I heard some great preaching in my native place, most of which focused on how God was able to release us from the guilt of inbred sin. 

Nowadays, apart from a few exceptions, that message is hardly heard in the pulpits of the Principality, nor for that matter in many other pulpits. 
The emphasis ceased to appeal to the modern mind and so was discarded. 

However, it is now coming back to us through the science of psychology.

Someone said that the point at which psychology and religion meet is at the point of guilt. 
Christianity and the social sciences underline what the human heart knows so well: 
It cannot live comfortably with guilt.

In this simple prayer of Jesus, however, we have an adequate answer: 
"Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors." 

If we have fully accepted the forgiveness of God and we know that our sins have been forgiven-
- then the result is a pervading sense of peace. 

The human heart cannot be put off by subterfuge.
It needs reconciliation, forgiveness, and assurance.​


"Gospel from India" 

"All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing." Ecclesiastes 1:8.    
Solomon's thesis here is-
"All things are restless." 

He has observed that there is an inherent restlessness in everything. 
In fact, it is so widespread that no one can possibly describe all the restlessness of life.

He has two proofs for this. 

First, human desire is never satisfied: 

"The eye never has enough of seeing." 

Nor is the ear ever satisfied with hearing. 

We are always alert to some new idea or something new that has happened. 
That is why news programs are always popular. 

Television, radio, and newspapers all cater to the ear's hunger to hear something. 
Some juicy gossip about a Hollywood star will sell thousands of magazines and newspapers. 

Some new way of making a profit always makes its appeal. 

The Searcher's argument is that the ear never tires because human desire is never satisfied.
It is a consequence of the restlessness that is built into life.

But, second, he says, even though we long to see or hear something new, nothing new ever really shows up. 

Life is a rehash of what has happened before-
- it is the old played over and over again. 

This too is a result of the restlessness that is built into life. 

Although something looks new to us, actually-
"There is nothing new under the sun."

So the questions are raised-
"Is this all life is about?" 
Is it merely an empty pursuit of that which never satisfies? 
Can no breakthrough be made whereby something can be found that will continually meet the hunger of the human heart, to give an unending sense of delight, satisfaction, and joy? 

Lord, my heart is restless until it finds its rest in You. 
Thank You that in You all things are made new!

"Gospel from India" 

Screen door

"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12.

Most days, my schedule is so packed that although I love my friends, I resist interruptions. 

Because of the pressure of time, without meaning to be rude, when someone rings the doorbell, I sometimes go to the door, stand inside the house with the ​​screen door still fastened, and talk to the person on the other side. 

If it is a neighbour, we can share common experiences in raising a family or discuss the weather or neighbourhood news. 
I may not invite the neighbour in because I know if I do, our visit will involve much more time than I have to give.

Many people seem to have a “screen door” relationship with Jesus. 

They talk to Him in prayer, and He talks to them through His Word; they can enjoy His presence-
- but they never invite Him to come into their lives as Savio​u​r and Lord. 

He’s on the outside, looking in. 

So the apostle John gave you and me motivation to open the door and invite Him to come in: 
“Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” the door to Jesus.​​​

Perfect love! "Gospel from India

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18.
Are you gripped with fear about something? 

Do not give in to despair. 
There is hope. 

Love is the answer to overcoming your fear because love is the Christian’s security blanket.

When you were a child, did you have a teddy bear or a blanket that gave you a sense of security—something you wanted to hold close to you and get wrapped up in? 

The Holy Spirit of God is the believer’s warm, loving security blanket.

Have you read the verse:
“Perfect love casts out fear”? 

It may not have rung true to you because you are thinking-
“I can never manage to achieve “perfect love.” 

But this is not the way to look at this verse. 
Listen to it in The Living Bible, which says:“We have no fear of someone who loves us perfectly.”
God’s perfect love can eliminate all dread. 
It is not our love for Him, but His perfect love for us that will cast out our fears.

The question isn’t “Am I brave enough?” 
The question is “Do I trust His love enough?”

The snare!  "Gospel from India" 

​"For they that will become rich fall into temptation and into ​​the snare of the devil and into many unprofitable and hurtful desires, which drown men into destruction and perdition." 1 Timothy 6:9.

It's often said that money is the root of all evil. 
That's not really true. 

Money is not an evil in and of itself. 
How we use it determines whether money is a positive or negative in our lives.

The Bible makes it clear that the desire to be rich brings many new temptations into your life. 

What are some of those temptations? 

It can be the temptation to lie or to steal. 
It can be the temptation to use and even run over other people, including your own family, to have more wealth. 
It can be the temptation to defraud other people to have more wealth. 

This focus to have more and more money can cause one temptation after another and the next thing you know, we can find ourselves doing things we never thought we'd do. 

We can make life a mess. 

When wealth becomes our priority, we are not willing to acknowledge that all we think we own is God's and that victory with money—be it a little or a lot—is using His money in a way that pleases Him.

Wealth earned honestly can be a blessing. 
It can do a lot of good. 

But the desire to be rich so we can spend it or hoard it for ourselves can cause us to give into all sorts of unhealthy temptations. 

It is time for us to--​ ​put away selfish pursuits, 
-​ ​get out from under possessions and-​ ​rediscover the true meaning of satisfaction in Jesus Christ.

My Manna

"Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing." Matthew 24:46. 
We are called to be servants, are we not? 

What does a servant do? 

He (or she) carries out the will of his master. 

A servant doesn't tell his master what to do.
He performs whatever tasks the master requests of him. 

A servant doesn't choose what days or times it's most convenient to serve his master. 
A servant's function is simply to follow and obey his master’s instructions. 

A servant does not develop a vision for the master either. 
The master is the one with the vision and he wants his servants to be ready and available to carry out that vision and bring it to fruition.

How can we experience fulfillment in our lives? 

Simply by serving our Master- our Heavenly Father. 

The world encourages us to seek counterfeit fulfillment...power...success....prosperity. 
The more of these things we gain, the more our flesh wants more. 

It is our sinful human nature. 
We will never find true fulfillment when we seek these things.

We must become servants if we want to experience true fulfillment. 
We need to become lowly, meek and humble. 

As God's servants we should have no other agenda, except to do His will.. 

When we become faithful to do His will-
- then He will fulfill the aspirations He desires for us in our lives and even those things we desire!

As God's faithful servant-
Let’s get our hearts in servant mode and watch how God brings about all the things we need.

gospel for Asia
Wake-up call

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10.

I read in the newspaper about a fighter plane that fired off a weapon and was moving so fast that it overtook the bullet and shot itself down. 


There are a lot of folks I know doing the same thing. 
They are shooting themselves down.

They don’t take time to slow down and to be still and know that God is God. 
They don’t take time to experience His serenity and inner quietness.. 

Isaiah 30:15 says, “In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”

How much time do we take to be quiet before the Lord? 
If you don’t have time to do this, you are too busy! 
You are going to miss life looking for it.

I have a question for you. 

Are you spending time alone with the Lord every day? 

Gospel for Asia

"Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. After leaving them, he went up on a mountainside to pray. Mark 6:45-46.
It's true that most of our days and nights are full of activity. 

Whether it's work, taking care of kids, sports, or family, we just don't seem to have enough time to get it all done.

Well, read this story:

He was exhausted, completely worn out from dealing with people and their problems. What He needed was a rest. He got away to spend some time alone with God. When He did, His spirit was renewed and refreshed. When the crowds came, He was able to respond, to care for them and meet their needs.

His name was Jesus Christ and He was the busiest man who ever lived. He accomplished more than anyone did before or since His time here.

So, while we do live in a very fast-paced world with great demands on our time-
I doubt that any of us has ever been busier than Jesus was when He walked on this earth. 

Why not learn from Him when you are frazzled, exhausted, and burned out? 

Take some time to be with God. 
If Jesus needed some time alone with God, surely we do, as

Cold spiritually? 

Are there times in your life when you have sensed yourself growing cold spiritually? 
Felt the power seeping out of your life and felt that Jesus Christ wasn’t as real as He used to be? 
In times like this, get alone in a quiet place and begin to give things back to God that you have subtly taken off the altar. Give Him your physical body and your right to life. Give Him your health, your strength, and your abilities to work and make a living. Give Him your reputation and your children. Give Him your cars, your clothes, your house.
And when you have honestly, earnestly, and sincerely given all to Him-- the joy will return to your heart and you will sense your relationship with God restored

Face the future!

Unspoiled and unsoiled, the new year lies before us-365 days of golden opportunity. 
We stand at the dividing of two streams-- one called Yesterday, - and the other, Tomorrow. 
We know every bend and every turn in the river Yesterday-- but the river Tomorrow stretches out into an unknown future.
We are living in a world that is far different from our world of Yesterday. We are living in troubled and difficult times.
But we need to remember that the new year is a venture into the unknown-- and we are going to have to rethink our lives. 
This new year affords us an opportunity to take spiritual inventory of our lives to see-- if our spiritual resources are sufficient for the needs and demands of the coming days of trial, temptation and sorrow. 
In the midst of all this, there is but one hope—the hope that Jesus Christ is coming again. 
Without that hope-- we cannot face the future. "God, thank You for this new year. Though the future is unknown, I look forward with expectancy and hope to what You have in store for me because You are good and You are never going to let me down. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Press toward by "Gospel from India" 

Press toward 

"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13-14.
I came across this story, about a man who was slowly losing his memory. 

After a lengthy examination, the doctor said that a risky operation on his brain might reverse his condition and restore his memory.
However, the surgery would be so delicate that a nerve could be severed, causing total blindness.

The surgeon asked, "So, which would you rather have, your sight or your memory?" 

The man pondered the question for a while and replied, "My sight, because I would rather see where I am going than remember where I have been."

Our enemy is always trying to dig up the past and keep us all bound up in our failures. 

But be encouraged! 

Today is a new day! 
Today and every day we have a choice to make! 

Like Paul, we must choose to press forward and put aside our past. 
We must purpose to keep our eyes on the Lord, not on our successes or failures, but upon on what can we do for Him today!

Be free from the shackles of the past!

nvite Him

"...whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13.

God has a way of getting our attention. 

Take the life of Jesus, for example. 
It was bracketed by two impossibilities: 

A virgin’️s womb and an empty tomb. 
Jesus entered our world through a door marked “No Entrance� and left through a door marked “No Exit.�

And yet, the world didn’️t want Him. 

Like the innkeeper who turned Mary and Joseph away and King Herod who tried to eliminate even a threat to his power-
- very often, the world doesn’️t want to make room for Christ. 

Mankind killed Jesus and sealed the tomb with a huge stone to shut Him out of our lives once and for all. 

But God had other plans. 

God removed the stone to prove that --​ ​Jesus would not be shut up 
-​ ​or shut out of His plans.

One day, Jesus will intrude upon history again. 
Be sure that you’️re ready and ​​invite Him into your life today!

"Gospel from India" 

Some feel it when alone; others feel it in a crowd. 
For many, the holiday season, can be one of the loneliest times of the year..  

According to sociologists, never before in history have so many people lived in such close proximity and yet felt so alone. 

Loneliness is a major problem. 
There’s no doubt that singles bars are often filled with lonely people. 

Let me offer you a different perspective on the subject. 

I propose that one can be ALONE, but not LONELY.  
Loneliness doesn’t have to steal your joy, your happiness, and your hope this holiday season. 


Because a person will never find victory over loneliness until he or she learns to enjoy being alone. 
That means digging down to the root of all loneliness, which stems from alienation from God.

Years ago, a man named Augustine espoused that God made us for Himself. 
So, our soul will remain restless until we find rest in Him. 

In other words, we may seek to fill the void with activities, crowds, and noise-
- but ultimately, this nagging loneliness will remain until we know God personally. 

And that’s the key to being alone, but not lonely – a personal relationship with the God of the Universe.  
Are you ready to take that step of faith this Christmas season?

"Gospel from India" 

​Irony in India!

"I am the Lord your God...You shall have no other gods before Me." Exodus 20:2-3.

Have you noticed a certain​​ irony in India? 

It seems that, while India is becoming more and more secular-
- it is also becoming more spiritual
- especially with all that is going on with the world economic conditions and crumbling governments. 

While India seems more and more godless-
- it is also becoming a land of many gods. 

As people recognize that there must be some higher power in life-
- they still rebel against the idea of any authority over their own personal lives. 

People want spirituality their own way-
- with no strings attached. 
But the spiritual pursuits of all these man-made gods is a dead end. 

So, what is the answer?
There is only one true way to God-
- and that is through Jesus Christ.  

He said: 
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."

Don't fall into the indecisive patterns of the majority. 

Look to Jesus Christ and find the answer to what you've been missing: 
The way to God, true spirituality.

"Gospel from India" 

We have a choice: 

"Don't copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." Romans 12:2.
A flock of wild geese was flying south for the winter when one goose looked down and noticed a group of domestic geese by a little pond near a farm. 

He noticed they had plenty of grain to eat. 
Life seemed relatively nice for them. 

So he flew down and hung out with these geese until spring and enjoyed the food that was there. 
He decided that he would rejoin his flight of geese when they went north again. 

When spring came, he heard them overhead and flew up to join them, but he had grown a bit fat from all of the seed. 
Flying was difficult, so he decided to spend one more season on the farm and then rejoin the geese on their next winter migration. 

When the geese flew south the following fall, the goose flapped his wings a little, but he just kept eating his grain. 
He had simply lost interest.

That is what happens in the subtle process of the world influencing our lives. 

It's not necessarily dramatic, nor does it usually happen overnight. 

It is gradual, causing erosion in our lives as we begin to lower our standards. 
Soon, the things of God become less appealing, and the things of this world become more appealing. 
After a while, we have no interest in the things of God.

We have a choice: 

Either we will be conformed to this world, 
- or we will be transformed by the Word!

It is one or the other. 

The only question is- - which way will you go?

 "Gospel from India" 
​Thankful heart

As I think through the things for which I am truly thankful-
I sometimes wonder if my list of thanks is superseded by my list of wants. 

Just walking through the mall can deceive me into thinking that I don’t have enough. 

In the world of consumerism in which we live-
I need to guard against becoming discontented with what I have. 
I don’t want to become someone who is hard to satisfy … who thinks that I never have enough.

As a child of God, I have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 

If Jesus is God in human flesh, if He holds the highest position in the universe, if He has a purpose that He is actively completing in the universe as well as in our own lives, it stands to reason that He is enough—for anyone, for everyone; at any time, all the time; in any situation, for every situation!

"Father God, You are truly enough—for every problem I face and for every need I have. Thank You that You have already met my greatest need, the need for salvation. I am thankful that You are holding all things together in this universe, in my life, and in the lives of my family and friends. Please add to my blessings the gift of a ​​thankful heart. I love You so much. In Jesus’ Name. Amen."

Gospel from India
Four Facts!

"He has planted eternity in the human heart." Ecclesiastes 3:11.
There are four things we should know about every person on earth. 

No matter how successful or unsuccessful they are-
- how famous or obscure they are, or 
- how attractive or unattractive they may be, 
- everyone shares these four traits.

Everyone is essentially empty. 

There is an essential emptiness in every person who hasn't yet come to Christ. 
No matter how much money or prestige someone has, he or she has to deal with that emptiness. 

Scripture says that God made His creation subject to vanity, or emptiness, meaning there is a void, a hole if you will, inside every man, woman, and child.

People are lonely. 

We can assume there is a sense of loneliness in every individual. 
Albert Einstein once wrote, "It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely." 

People are lonely. 
We need to know that.

People feel guilty. 

They may try to mask it with alcohol or have a psychologist or psychiatrist tell them it is not there. 
But they have to deal with their guilt over the things they have done wrong.. 

The head of a mental institution in London said, "I could release half of my patients if I could find a way to relieve them of their sense of guilt."

People are scary.

They are afraid to die. 

Some may strut around and say, "Not me. I'm not afraid to die." 
But they are.

So don't be so intimidated by the facades that people hide behind and assume they don't want to hear what you have to say about your faith in Christ. 

Remember, you used to be one of those people. 
I used to be one of those people. 

We responded to the gospel. 
And so will they

Lifetime warranty!  Gospel from India"

"I have written these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life." 1 John 5:13..
Many people have questions about eternal life after death. 

Death is a reality we know for sure. 
The reality of life after death, for some, is impossible to know.

In fact, in this regard, some Christians have difficulty believing in it, also. 
Since the beginning of the Christian faith, professing believers doubted the reality of life after death. 

The apostle John wrote to make sure they knew, for sure, these simple facts: 
God gave eternal life as a gift to believers in Christ; this life exists through the Son; so, if you have the Son, you have life—forever.

As a pastor I have noticed when death comes “knocking at the door” of some believers, their reaction is doubt and fear. But our attitude doesn’t have to be apprehension. 

We can rest assured in our “lifetime warranty.” 
The God who gave the Son promised us life forever. 

We know, for sure.

Are you saved?  "Gospel from India" 

"Brothers and sisters, my heart's desire and prayer to God that they may be saved." Romans 10:1.     
Paul expresses his intense passion that many within the nation Israel would be saved. 

I do not think there is any word in the Christian vocabulary that makes people feel more uncomfortable than the word "saved." 

People cringe when they hear it. 

Perhaps it conjures up visions of hot-eyed, zealous buttonholers — usually with bad breath — who walk up and grab you and say, "Brother, are you saved?" 

Or perhaps it raises visions of a tiny band of Christians at a street meeting in front of some saloon singing, "Give the winds a mighty voice, Jesus saves! Jesus saves!" 

Whatever the reason, I do know that people become bothered at this word.

I will never forget the startled look on the face of a man who came up to me in a church. 

The seat beside me was vacant, and he said, "Is this seat saved?" 

I said, "No, but I am." 

He found a seat across the aisle. 

Somehow this word threatens all our religious complacency and angers the self-confident and the self-righteous alike.

And yet, when you turn to the Scriptures you find that this is an absolutely unavoidable word. 

Christians have to talk about men and women being saved because the fact is that men and women are lost. 
There is no escaping the fact that the Bible clearly teaches that the human race into which we are born is already a lost race. 

This is why the good news of John 3:16 is that-"God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish — not perish — but have everlasting life." John 3:16.
We can never deal realistically with life until we face up to this fundamental fact: 
People are not waiting until they die to be lost — they are already lost. 

It is the grace of God that reaches down and calls us out of that lostness and gives us an opportunity to come to Christ and be saved. 
Therefore saved is a perfectly legitimate word to use. 

It makes us uncomfortable only when we refuse to face the fact that men and women are lost. 
They are born into a perishing race in which their humanity is being put to improper uses and is gradually deteriorating and falling apart, and they are facing an eternity of separation from God. 

These are the facts as the Scriptures put it.??

by "Gospel from India" 

Jesus promised to give us His peace-
- the kind that enabled Him to sleep through a fierce storm. John 14:27.

Without it, we'd be like the disciples, who felt helpless and afraid. 
With it, we will experience inner calmness in the midst of life's turmoil.

To access the peace of the Lord-
- we must meet certain conditions. 

The first requirement is to receive Jesus as our personal Saviour. 

Before salvation, we were by nature opposed to God. 
But our redemption changed that. 

The Bible says we now have peace with Him and are members of His family, instead of His enemies. Rom. 5:10.
Fear of death—a major reason that we lack peace—evaporates as we comprehend the glorious truth that we will spend eternity 

in heaven with Him.

Believing in God's sovereignty is a second condition for having a tranquil heart. 

In this troubled world, personal safety is a major concern. 
To combat fear, we must trust that God controls all things. 

Knowing that He is in charge will protect us from anxiety and give us peace..

The third thing we must do is understand that God knows our needs and has promised to meet each one. Phil. 4:19. 

He is a loving Father who delights in giving good gifts to His children. 
We may not receive all we want, but He'll give us whatever is necessary to fulfill His purpose for us.

Once we have received Christ as our Saviour-
- the Holy Spirit will remind us that our future is secure, 
- and our loving, sovereign God will see to it that we have everything we need.

"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

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?

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: 

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


“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? 

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."

"Gospel from India" 

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."

"Gospel from India" 
​ 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.†
How will you respond

"Gospel from India"

“…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?

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?
