      Today with Jesus

      Bible verse: “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2)

      Easing the pain of others is the best way to alleviate one’s sufferings.

      Reaching out to those in pain is like a medicine for reducing the impact of mental and physical illness. When we nurse others’ pain, we naturally forget our pains. The profession of nursing is the most noble as they serve the sick and needy day and night throughout the year. People choose this profession just not for the salary behind it, but for the satisfaction and happiness that they experience. In today’s world, we find many people being selfish instead of helping others who are in pain and need. The largest contributors and advocates for cancer awareness in the world are the organizations of cancer patients.

      When Jesus was on the cross with excruciating pain, he consoled his mother. He even prayed for His persecutors not to withhold their sins and then died by entrusting him to the father by finishing his mission on earth.

      Aimee Semple McPherson was the greatest miracle healer and evangelist of the first half of the 20th century in USA. Her life became a mess and was very painful towards the end. Financial bankruptcy, family breakdown , health deterioration and desertion of her loved ones. Her pain was inconsolable.. She decided that the best way to alleviate her own suffering was to ease the pain of others. Aimee threw herself wholeheartedly into the work of alleviating the distressed from their depressions . She took in elderly men, whose social security had eroded with stock market crash, allowing them to sleep in her garage. She invited malnourished women to sleep in her living room. When the parents of unwed pregnant teenagers turned them out, she invited the girls into the parsonage. Later, she convinced the parents to take back their daughters and grand-children.

      Prayer: Jesus, let us follow you by alleviating the pain of others as you did it. We pray for all care givers who are in the ministry of healing. Let us have the inner light of helping others in their needs when we are in pain and sorrow. We pray for widows, widowers, orphans, homeless, and those are abandoned by the society at large. Let us be consoled by consoling others.

      All we ask in Jesus' name. Amen.

      Message 442 of 442 , Oct 16, 2012
        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.
