      Today with Jesus

      “You cannot serve both God and Mammon (Money).” (Luke 16:13)

      Warren Buffet, the richest man in the world, hasn’t allowed money to control the way he lives his life.

      Money is deceptive and a bad master.

      Money never ever could provide prosperity, happiness and eternity.
      But money gives status, goods, and power in the eyes of the world,
      but that is despicable in front of god. Wealth in no way steps us into the portal of spirituality and God. Eternity is free to those who seek God. Churches, homes and the religious centers are in the business of selling God for money, and make people go in hot pursuit of wealth by sacrificing all the goodness of life and God, love, relationships and family to miss the kingdom of God. We have a choice to be balanced between Jesus and materialistic things. Judas, the traitor chose 30 pieces of silver over Jesus and died by “falling
      head- long, bursting open his body and all his intestines spilled out”- (Acts 1:18). I wonder what will be the fate for the sellers and buyers of sacraments.

      Warren Buffet is one of the most successful and richest man in the modern world. He speaks about his life:

      He started young and bought his first share when he was 11 years
      old.

      He bought a small 3-bedroom house 50 years ago. He is still living in
      the same house.

      He does not have a driver and drives his own car.

      He does not travel by private jets even though he owns the world’s
      biggest private jet company.

      After work, instead of socialising with high-status people, he goes home and makes himself a bowl of popcorn and watches television.


      He may be a billionaire but he does not allow money to control the way he lives his life. He advises, “Do not neglect your family; remember,
      they were there before you made it. Money does not create man, but it is man who created money.”

      Conscience question: Who is our
      God - Jesus or money? Are we
      the in the business of selling and buying God?

      Prayer: Jesus, let us be filled with your spirit without any money dealings. Let us not be the traitor as Judas and be punished to die without hope. Let all our actions be pleasing to 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.
