“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.”(Romans 10:15)
“it’s OK to be outspoken about your faith.”-Tim Brow- New York Jets Quarterback- sports Celebrity.
Jesus and his salvation should be conveyed to the world in all the means. Faith is to be practiced and proclaimed. Once you are spirit filled then that could not be hide. We have to contemplate day and night His word and thanks always his mercy. The morning prayer of Syriac orthodox church concludes,” how beautiful to sing your grate name, and to proclaim your mercy in the morning and your faith in the evenings.” In our assigned fields we should be witness for truth and Christ. When we should have to be exposed we should. The sports field is one of the bests to reach to the sprouting generation to Christ. Sports can be a medium for the word. Those who are talented in sports and games be gut to do so.
Tim Tebow the spots celebrity draws 15,000 to Texas Easter Service on Sunday 8 April 2012. He was telling the gathering it’s important to be out spoken about faith while admonishing athletes about not being better role models. Tebow is a devout Christian, backup NFL quarterback and cultural phenomenon. He told the crowd he welcomed the attention on his convictions as well as the “Tebowing” prayer pose he often strikes on the field because it puts his faith and prayer in the public conversation. “It’s being talked about,” he said. “That’s exciting.” He shot at professional athletes who insist they are not role models. “Yes you are. You are just nota good one,” He does not hide who he is. One fan says,’ I’m fan of any pro athlete who stands up for his faith,” he said. “We are thrilled to be part of this. It’s not about football. What ever gets more people over to the cross, I’m in favour of.”
Prayer.Jeus let us be witness for your love in all our fields of opportunity. Your love be proclaimed in the roof tops of all the people. Let those who are in the sports and cultural fields be faithful and role models for you. We pray for more Tebows with the guts to stand for you in the football and other sports and games.
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.
