Today with Jesus
- Good morning to my dearest children
Today’s Bible verse
“I am the vine, and you are the branches if you stay joined to me,
and I stay joined to you, then you will produce lots of fruits. But you cannot do anything with out me.”(John 15:5)
The grapevine is a prolific plant; a single vine supports numerous
branches and bears many fruits. Branch has no life as it’s own. It always gets the supply of nourishment from the main stem. Just like the branches we are the body connected to the creator to produce godly fruits. The fruits of spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control(Galatians 5:22,23). Are we producing the fruits of spirit? If no then it is the high time to contemplate, reflect, silence and prayer in front of God. We are today here on earth to bear fruits of spirit, spirit alone but spirit of fruits alone.
Mother Teresa once said “I can tell about my path, but I am only
a little wire- God is the power. Talk to others, the sisters and brothers and the people who work with them. Some are not Christians, talk to them, you will know it is when you see it .It is very beautiful.” The wire gets electricity from the source and shows the light to others. That we see in the works of Missionaries of Charity all over the world through their love and compassion. What a wonderful witness.!?
Lord, we are the handmaids of you, if we are disconnected from you;
restore us to the position, before the fallen state, with full of love and joy. All we ask in Jesus name. Amen
you a fruitful day
ever-loving servant in Jesus

- Today with Jesus
“Leave these men alone! Let them go.” (Acts 5:38)
The sign of the Cross on the television tower in Berlin : “The
sign of unbeatable sign of worship,”- Ronald Regan, President of USA in 1987.
Till the passing of
the present earth and heaven, Christ, his Cross and its principles would be
valued and be in proclamation for the salvation of the world. No power on earth
can wipe out the eternal truth of God from the face of this earth. It is always
better not to fight and antagonize Christ and his principles. When Peter and other disciples were put in
jail to be punished by the assembly of Jews, the great respected learned
teacher, Gamaliel, advised them,
"Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will
fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will
only find yourselves fighting against God” -(Acts 5:38&39). It is an universal law for a smooth peaceful
way of co-operative living on earth.
After the second world
war, Berlin was under Communist government. Most of the churches and its
symbols were destroyed to crush the faith in Jesus. To show the power and
strength of atheism and communism, Walter Ulbech, the head of communist
Germany, constructed the tallest television tower in Germany. On top of the
tower is a stainless steel globe in rotation.
As soon as the construction was over,
everyone was shocked to find a shining and glittering sign of a cross on
the globe from top to bottom. The sun's rays shone on the globe from all sides
making the cross to glitter. The
engineers tried all their might to erase it, but in vain. Still it is there to proclaim to the world
that the cross is our salvation.
Conscience question: Are we in a fight against Christ and
his teachings by our actions of projecting and selling ourselves for self-glorification?
Prayer: Jesus, let us be the promoters of your signs
and symbols of your sacrifice on the cross for our salvation and eternity. Let
us not be destroyers, but custodians of your teachings. We pray for all those
who are in the ministry to spread your good news of salvation on the cross. Let
all those who believe in you be in salvation and the fighters against you be in
conversion. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
