Today with Jesus
- Today’s Bible verse
“You are God’s holy temple. And God will destroy any one who destroys his temple.”(1 Corinthians 3;17)
Are you concern about the plight of your fellow beings?
We are supposed to look after our neighbours. The fallen body of humans beings should be reconstructed. The responsibly of rebuilding the dilapidated body of humanity is entrusted to the enlightened people by Jesus. “Am I supposed to look after my bother.”(Genesis 4:9) No Christians are supposed to be keep away from this duty of mass reconstruction. Practically we are all employed permanently to do the commission of God- rebuilding of church. So in Christianity there is no unemployment. The real church or tabernacle is the body of human where the spirit of God abides. That should be unblemished in all levels-spiritual, mental, and physical. It is the duty of each individuals to keep their own body holy and pure by proper nourishment of spiritual and physical food. Hungry should be fed, thirsty should be watered, stranger should be welcomed, naked should be clothed, sick should be treated, jailed should be visited.(Mathew 25:35,36) The reward for all these works is the kingdom of God that is prepared for us before world was created.” My father has blessed you! Come and receive the kingdom that was prepared for you before the world was created .”(Mathew 25:34)
St Francis of Assisi was praying in an ancient church that was badly in need of repair. He heard a voice from a crucifix which was over the altar. Which said, “Francis go and repair my church which is falling in to ruins.” Francis went to get his tool, chest, but he soon realized that the voice of God was referring to something else. The voice of God again said, “Not the bricks, Francis, the people are in need of repair.” Then Francis went out and took care of orphans and widows.. The voice of God still speaks from above the altar today and say; “Francis go and repair my church which is falling in to ruins,.” And God is not talking about bricks and mortar but the human beings with flesh and blood .
Instead of spending and pooling all the mite of human beings for the church buildings with sand and concrete that should be diverted to food centers, water bodies, educational mines, medical fields, habitat buildings, and mission fields
Jesus, let us work for the care of your creation who are in need of food, water, dress, education, treatment ,and spiritual enrichment. Let be the keepers of our neighbours. We pray for those who are in the mission fields of hostile terrain. All we ask in the name of Jesus . AmenLove

- 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.
