Hold on to God’s Word

Mark 13:31 – Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. We live at a time when disasters abound all around us. The ground beneath our feet may give way in an earthquake. An entire region might be wiped out in a missile strike. Hillsides melt away in a landslide. Coastal areas are washed […]

Ask your Father for a blessing

Finish What You Started

2 Corinthians 8:11 – “Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means.” When his team was asked to start on a new project, Rahul was enthusiastic about taking the lead.

God is always faithful.  He is the one who has called us unto the fellowship of His Son, Jesus.  Circumstances and situation might change, but God will never change.  He will be faithful because […]

Spirit of humility

Luke 18:13:  And the publican standing afar off, would not lift up as much as his eyes unto heaven but smote upon his breast, saying God be merciful to me a sinner. God sees the heart and not the person.  Publicans were generally considered as sinners during the time of Jesus because they used to […]

Life eternal through Jesus

Romans 6:23:  For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. All of us work faithfully and work hard, nearly sweating out our efforts just for the wages that we would receive at the end of the month.  The same counts for sin.  The […]
