Today with Jesus
- Today’s bible verse
“Even when I walk through the valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.”(Psalm 23:4)
We can struggle with pain, suffering, disease, and injury. But strength and courage cannot over come death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death’s dark valley and bring us the other side- the God of life .Jesus says don’t afraid ,”I ‘am with you till the end of the age”.
Now people are afraid of everything. After the nine eleven incident, the mighty invincible American people are afraid, even to travel. They depend more on the creation than the creator. They forget the immorality of soul and eternity. Those who have faith in God and the eternity, nothing to be afraid.
“I’m afraid to die,” Felicity said to Perpetua. “I don’t want my baby to grow up without a mother.” As a new mother, Perpetua understood. They were both going to be killed for being Christians. “Our babies will be raise by Christians,”Perpetua said. “They will know that we loved them, and that we loved our lord.”
“A little bit, I know we’ll be with God in heaven,” As she and Felicity prayed and consoled each other, a Roman soldier opened their cell door. Perpetua took Felicity’s hand to comfort her. “It is time, “ he said. Let’s go greet our lord,” “ Yes,” said Felicity
with a smile. “Let’s go”.
Two young mothers courage and faith in front of death never go waste
Lord, we see your unforeseen protection and presence in our life.
Give us your light ,comfort and consolation in this life and the
life to come to continue our journey. All we ask in the name of Jesus . Amen.
Your 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.
