    Today with Jesus Bible verse: “I believe that I shall look up on the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” (Psalm 27:3) I can help one person

      Today with Jesus

      Bible verse: “I believe that I shall look up on the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” (Psalm 27:3)

      "I can help one person to stay positive." - An 8 year cancer survivor, Art Sibley.

      Negative thoughts of glass half-empty attitudes are taking importance in times of sickness and calamities in the life of modern man and this attitude accelerates the problem or sickness further. The healing process of any problem depends mainly on the mental attitude and faith in the Almighty. So we are now in a desperate situation and are in need of a positive environment in our world. If you can light only a candle, do it now. And let the light of positivity be like a wild fire and result in a world of healings and support for the weak, the sad, and the sick. If we are not positive and don't see goodness in all realms of life, then that’s suicidal. And then we are being the angels of darkness and will be despised.

      Art is a former constable in Barrie Police Station, Ontario, Canada. In Feb 2004, his diagnosis of stage 3 squamous cell cancer on the base of his tongue came as a shock. The cancer had moved into his lymph nodes. A bad day in his life. A whirlwind of medical appointments followed for radiation and chemotherapy treatments for 35 days. Finally, the doctor said, "There is no sign of cancer." Art says, “When I began to feel better, I knew I had to do something with this experience, to give back, to do one-on-one support programme. I’m a glass-half- full kind of person.” He adds, “On my worst days, I still knew that a positive attitude was half the battle won to beat my cancer. I thought if I can help one person to stay positive, I have to do this. When I call a client, as soon as they know that I’m an 8-year cancer survivor and that I understand what they are going through, I can hear the stress leave their voice. I don’t think you can put a price on this program.”

      Prayer: Jesus, we cry to you to help us stay positive. Let us find your goodness in all life situations. Let all the cancer patients be in your positive promise of “My grace is enough for you and I heal you.” We pray that more and more cancer survivors join together to support the ones diagnosed with cancer. We pray and support for a fool-proof treatment for cancer. Let people like Art, be blessed for their service to society. All we ask in Jesus' name. 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
      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.
