Today with Jesus
- Today’s Bible verse
" I will give you a wise and understanding heart such as no
one else has had or ever will
have.”(1 Kings 3:12)
Are you learning the life
lessons from the word of God or from your
trial and error life?
There is no time for
an individual to have the trial and error methods to get wisdom to live. There
is only one life on earth that ‘s limited by space and time. We need a life
compass to move even a step forward. God is the fountain spring of knowledge and wisdom. “If you need wisdom,
ask our generous God, and he will give it to you.”(James 1:5) According
Solomon, “For the lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and
understanding.”(Proverbs 2:6) . So follow his instruction thick and thin that
is all we needed to live a happy
,healthy human life on earth. Those who need the wisdom should be asked then that will be given.. Solomon asked for wisdom in governing his
people with justice and have not asked for a long life or wealth or the death
of his enemies. So God gave him wisdom. If we ask what ever things we needed to live as a son/ daughter of
God will be provided by Him.
A young girl
committed to suicide. She had been addicted to drugs and suffered from some
psychological problems. Anthony
Destefano attended the funeral. He says,’ At the end of the night I went
to say good- bye to the mother of the girl, and she grabbed me by the arm and told
me with tears in her eyes, “ Make sure you hug your children tonight. Please,
tell them you love them! It’s important that you do that.” Tragically, she hadn’t
told her own daughter that she loved her very often, and she couldn’t .She was
trying to impart that sad piece of advice to Anthony while he still had the
chance to avoid her mistake. Did
she really have to acquire that wisdom such a late date and such an immense
cost? Had she been praying to God foe wisdom right along, is there any doubt
that she would have been given the grace to understand the value of open,
Don’t’ wait for the
age to come for wisdom. Simply follow Jesus and his instruction Manuel of life.
Then you never miss the target of
Jesus, help those who are groping in the darkness of life
without knowing your wisdom to live.
Let those who are in the verge of
death and destruction to be
saved. We pray for those who are in the challenges of life like depression and
suicidal tendency. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.Love

“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.
