Finding Joy in uncertain times

What is love made up of? Is it merely desire, sentimentality or affection? Or is it more to do with sacrifice? The cross of Jesus demonstrates love in its purest form, says Max Jeganathan

Joy follows obedience

When tests and troubles come your way, what you need are not answers to questions, but stamina and endurance which stem from obedience. Obedience brings in its wake joy, says Rev Jeremy A. Dawson.

You are special

You and I are special because many didn’t make it to see this day.There’s great power available within us to take on the biggest of challenges. All we need is for our hearts to be enlightened about this truth, says Pastor Lalthakima Royte, New Calvary Church, Pondicherry

GRACE AND PEACE IN ABUNDANCE

Are you going through a rough patch? Take time to be alone with God and His word, and you will receive grace and peace in your life, recommends Pastor Abraham George, NLF, Kochi.

You are not forgotten

Are you feeling forlorn and forgotten? There’s Someone who has engraved your name on His hand and is ready and waiting to carry you forward no matter how big is your setback or struggle. Give that Someone a chance to come to your rescue, says Pastor Andreas Andersson, City Rock Church, Coimbatore

Friend of Sinners

While one looks out for the best in any bargain, contrary to other worldviews that look for the initiated and the committed, Jesus reaches out to sinners. The Bible says, God loved us while we were still sinners. In fact Jesus did not love us from a distance but reached out to us.

In a crisis, how do I act?

Oh for the wings of a dove, so that I can fly away from all my troubles…It doesn’t really help to be an escapist, instead cast your cares on the One who will sustain you, says Rev Grace Ida Rajan

Balancing Action & Accountability

Getting started is good, but not all. Like the Tanzanian marathon runner John S. Akhwari said at the 1968 Olympics, it’s finishing the race that’s important. And how we do it is even more important. Don’t give up, keep going in the love of God, recommends Sharon Winston, Pastor, City Rock Church, Coimbatore

You hold the Treasure of God

Don’t go by the look of the fragile jar or container. For the power of the light of heavenly glory kept inside it is not derived from the container nor limited by its size, shape or quality. This realisation helps us stay grounded, says Rev Dr. Meyu Changkiri, Shillong.

The Audacity of Sacrifice

What is love made up of? Is it merely desire, sentimentality or affection? Or is it more to do with sacrifice? The cross of Jesus demonstrates love in its purest form, says Max Jeganathan
