Today with Jesus
Bible verse: “And he withdrew himself in to a lonely place and prayed.”(Luke 5:16)
Meditation is the best medicine to reduce pain, stress, and depression and even to heal self centeredness (Ego)
Mediation is the way to withdraw from the world of soul eating combustible crowd and recuperating all the energies to live a healthy life here and here after. We are living in a world of sound and fury of life but nothing - deprived off inner peace and serenity. Modern man is in the breakeven point of breakdown. This is the high time to seek inner peace and live a healthy human life. We should find our quiet time and be connect with the spirit of God who speaks always in still waters. Give time to rest for all our thoughts and be still with God. Just like a lake, let there be the waves but a time to stop the waves and then a calm water.
In the ministry of Jesus often he withdrew from the crowed and abides with his father and filled with the power to do his ministry. In the Gospel of Mark 9 times he was quiet time in wilderness –Sea, Mountain, desert etc with his world of meditation.
Fiona Assersonhw was a chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis (Lupus) patient . She has gone for an 8 weeks daily mindfulness meditation session as a part of medical research done by a group of neurologists and psychiatrists. The result was ground braking She says, ”If I do mindfulness meditation my Lupus pain substantially reduces.” The research concludes that mindfulness mediation have an impact on our brain systems that is shown brain boost in MRI scan -a physical objective proof. Mediation can reduce stress, depression, chronic pain and even self-centeredness or ego.
Prayer: Jesus let us follow you .As you meditated let us be with you in quiet time. Let us unburden all our stress, pain, depressions and egos at thy feet and relived from all the burdens of life and daily live under your wings as a liberated human beings. We pray for all those who have been struggling with the pain and stress of this world. Let them find 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.
