Watch and pray to stand before Son of man

“And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?’ Mark 14:37

Jesus Christ said the above words to Peter. He took peter, james and john and went to gesthsemane to pray. While praying Jesus took a break at that time He asked peter couldnt he pray with Him one hour.
Even though three desciples were there, Jesus questioned only peter to pray, because Peter just before said  that he will follow Jesus until death. Compared to other desciples peter showed more faith like walking on water. 
Jesus knew that peter is going to deny him but still He asked him to pray. why ??
If Peter would have prayed, he might not have denied Jesus. Thats what Jesus could have expected, but unfortunately he slept. 
Like peter we also most of times don’t pray . When temptations come we deny Jesus. How can we deny christ ?
When we go through problems we try to solve it by our own capability, but inturn leads to failure. We when face trial we dont submit to go through the trial instead try to find out alternative plans. Finally when dont follow the character  and behaviour of Jesus Christ, this way we are denying Him. Let God give grace and prayer spirit to us.
” A man who prays will never deny christ

“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. ” – Luke 21:36

Life in absence of the Sun !

We read in genesis chapter 1 about the creation of whole universe ,Heaven and earth. 

God created all kinds of plants,herbs, grass, trees with fruits on Day 3 . God created Sun and moon on day 4.

For God 1 day = 1000 years.  Proof is God told adam and eve, that on  the day they eat the fruit of tree of knowledge of good and evil, you shall surely die. Simlilarly adam died at age 930 years. He didnt live 1 day in the sight of God.

Bible says all plants were created one day before sun was created. One day=1000 years. Hence it shows plants lived 1000 yrs before sun was created.

plants cannot live without sun. Plants prepare their food  with help of sunlight called photosynthesis.

by the holyscriptures we come to know that plants lived 1000 years before sun came to existance. The above thing shows it is against science. Before of sun , God himself was light. With that light plants lived.
Jesus Christ is the truth , way and life.
Jesus Christ is the Light of this world.
In the eternity also sun and moon will pass off, God shall be eternal light.

Conclusion: In the above example we come to know plants can live without sun light, this is against the science but plants lived by light of God. The aim of the above example is not to disapprove science, but to prove God is the only way of life not only earthly life but eternal life.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Why I was born ??

Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

Isa 61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

God have created you not simply to live a life that please your self will but to do His will.

In times of problems which cannot be solved by money or human help , we may think
Why God have created me?,
why i was born ??

The answer  is  in Isaiah 61:1-3. Above verses.

We are not like animals which live and die.  But human being have soul , which lives for ever. God have created us to proclaim gospel, deliver the bounded people, to heal the sick, to deliver people from devils.

Each and every person is created by god for a particular reason, none of us is waste. We may be waste and useless in the sight of man, but we are precious in the sight of God. Man sees face, but God sees  heart. God can use us only when we submit ourself to Him.
Isa 43:4 Since thous wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and i have love thee: therefore will I give men for thee , and people for thy life”

Let us not lose hope seeing situation around us. One day God will deliver us from all our troubles and honour us. Praise the Lord.

” I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that soul knoweth right well.” Psa 139:14

Blessings by God’s chastening!

” Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;” Psalms 94:12

Don’t get weary when God punishes you for small things. That is not called  punishment instead it is called as  chastening.

Why  God chasten You?
Ans: God Loves you so much that he doesn’t want you live in a sinful life or disorder life.

God’s expectation is you must live a righteous life. When we go in a way that displeases God,  He chastise us in order to correct us.

What is law?
Ans: After Jesus came we are not under old testament law but new testament law.

According to Galatians 5:14 “For all the law is fulfilled in one word ; Thou shall love thy neighbour as thyself “ .  Therefore love replaces the law. We must overcome evil by good.  When some one does bad to us, we must forgive them and love them. It is difficult to love our enemies but God gives us grace to do that. We need to sincerely pray for people who fights with us, persecutes us, accuses us falsely . When we respond to them as worldly people do,  then God does not sit and watch simply . He corrects us, chastise us. He does it to escape us from eternal judgment. He does it so that our heart might change to be like His Heart!

“For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.” -Hebrew 12:6
