Today with Jesus
- Today's Bible verse
"For where 2 or 3 gather together in my name, I’m there among them.” (Mathew 18:20)
If you are failing constantly, why not try to work as a team and have the blessings and success in Jesus - (Jesus and your team)
Our DNA system is designed by God to work as a team, not as an island. Life is designed for companionship, not isolation, for intimacy, not loneliness. Some people prefer isolation, thinking they cannot trust anyone. We are not here on earth to serve ourselves, however, but to serve God and others. Don’t isolate yourself and try to go it alone. Seek companions, be a team member. Here the children are trained to live with the attitude of “I”, “Mine”, “Me”, instead of “We”, “Ours” and “Us”. Of course the God of unity is out of their universe by glorifying the “I” and “Me” world. Jesus is in the midst of 2 or 3 in unity of mind to bless. Jesus with your team is the formula to live a blessed happy life. Genesis 2:18 - “It’s not good for a man to be alone.” Don’t worry about your difficulties and sufferings that you have to endure for the team play you do both in the family and at work. The ultimate blessings is reserved for you today. Jesus has assured it so and not failed, but be answered from heaven.
Oprah Winfrey is the famous American television host, actress, producer, and philanthropist and best known for her talk show viewed by more than 60 million viewers and one of the richest American. She was born in poverty, to a teenage single African American mother, raped at age 9, was pregnant at 14, son died in infancy but found faith In Jesus and is the most eloquent proponent of Jesus, and his love and team play. When people ask her the secret of her “Show’s success, her answer, “My team… and Jesus.” She spoke about a higher being, saying you can "acknowledge it or ignore it”. I listen for the guidance that is greater than my meagre mind. God is love and God is life, and your life is always speaking to you. First in whispers, then it’s like getting a brick inside the head. What are the whispers in your life? "I had a “one time encounter” in Mississippi - know what a miracle that is.”
Ecclesiastes 4:10 - “But pity (or woe) the person who falls down and has no one to help him up.”
Prayer : Jesus, we pray for all those who are alone and have no companions. Let us get good workable team to live and progress. Let us pray and work with the unity of minds and goals. Let team attitude work in our houses, churches, offices, factories, hospitals and all other institutions. Let the poor and abused find solace, success and peace in you. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

- 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.
