“Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! ……… Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.”(John 7:37,38)
Believe in Jesus, as savior is the only way to be drenched in the spirit of living water of eternity.
One who has Christ in him/her is an eternal bliss to others. The spirit of Jesus directs all the words, actions and thoughts. The world still exits due to these kinds of people. They bear the fruits of Holy Spirit in their day-to-day life in action. The fruits are” love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.”(Galatians 5; 22,23) We can measure a person by the fruits they produce or transmit in their life. The world we live is very dangerous with innumerable fake, quack, and Hippocratic callers of lord, lord, and lord. We should discern each Christian not by their words but by their life.
106 year old Paulose still read 4 news papers with out spectacles, never gets provoked in any circumstances and never gets angry. He
is the most respected person in his village and the church. Each of his children competes with each other for his stay in their homes. When I had a visit him in my India trip I got lost in his presence and never wanted to come out from his presence. I have been observing almost all the qualities of Holy Spirit in him for the last 25 years. Truly thirst and hunger will not dare to enter in the room of this kind of people. But rivers of living water flow from this kind of species.
Jesus, we come to you for quench for our thirst for eternity and Holy Spirit. We believe in you as our savior. Let your free gift of Holy Spirit abide in us. Let us be the rivers of living water ever flowing to fulfill the thirst of all the human beings. Let us be the joy to others. We pray for long life to 106 year Paulose and like people.
All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen

“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.
