Today with Jesus
- Today’s bible verse
“I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of heaven”(Mathew 18:3)
Do you like to Indentify with children?
Albert Schweitzer once reportedly remarked there are only three ways to teach, Example, example and example. Jesus says it’s better to learn from children. The grown up world is corrupted by its conditioned minds and behaviors. The world of child is innocent and trusting. Who wants now trust and innocence?. The earth is moving to the inhabitants of only the elders and its ugliness by neglecting and demeaning the children? Now the children are the choice but not the gift of God. Children are the most exploited and abused groups, in houses, schools and society. Danger mines are ahead of them in the grab of religion, science and technology. Supposed to be the safest place for a child -“the womb”- is not even safe now! So what example the grown ups put in front of the children. Age alone learned anything but learned anything from the school of children. It is not too late to look on children, learn and enter in to the flight towards heaven.
Boy, 6 leads heroic rescue. It was late sep 2010, Dr, Mayer Yacowar with his 6-year-old son NOAH was snorkeling the coast of Turks. The waters grew suddenly violent. Noah was clinging to his arm, wearing a flimsy life vest. On the other side, two young couple, trying desperately not to drown in the waters. Yacowar realized he could only help the couple by letting go of his son. It was difficult decision for as father. But NOAH made it easier for him. “He looked at me and said,’ Dad, go do what do you best, Go save those couple” Yacowar recalls “ And my son let go”. “NOAH stopped periodically to look back at his father and encouraged the trio to keep pressing on “My dad has you, don’t worry, don’t worry” he called. Twenty minutes, all four were back on the boat, safe and sound. Dad was telling, “Noah was my inspiration” The saved couple say, “All our hopes an dreams and all the plans we made for our life, could have come to an end”. They thanked Yacowar and the bravery of NOAH.
Don’t stamp on the words and lives of the innocent children and inherit the dark world. Instead look on children and see the heavenly light and follow.
Jesus, You allowed the children to come to you and blessed. Give us child like trust and faith. We pray for the children, who are ill-treated, abused and exploited. Let the abusers repent and justice be done. Let see the angelic faces of the children and be radiated. All we ask in the name of 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.
