Many times we think we have chosen Jesus Christ as our God. The reality is Jesus Christ has chosen us before the creation of world.
“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: ” Eph 1:4
Jesus Christ has only one purpose in our life is to give us “eternal life”, which man lost in the eden garden. But after Adam fell, God’s hope didn’t fail, Jesus Christ came in human form set a perfect example, and died on cross and resurrected to open a way to eternal life.
Tit 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
Let God give us Grace to attain that eternal life.
“It is through the Lord’S mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.
Theyare new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness”-Lam 3:22,23
Daily god gives us his grace and mercy. Who ever seeks His mercy , will receive it. Jacob wrestled with God till morning. In the early morning God blessed him and gave new name “Israel”. From then onwards his life was blessed . wrestling of Jacob in morning can be compared to our “Morning praise & prayer”. When we seek God early He will bless us, deliver us from captivity more than all we receive Grace and Mercy required for that day, Hence we must seek God daily. Let God give us Grace to seek Him early morning..

“Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadrans.”
He(Jesus Christ) called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury;for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.” -Mark 11:42-44
Jesus Christ was watching how people were giving money into treasury. Rich gave much, but this widow put two mites into treasury. Jesus Christ would have felt happy of that widow’s two mite. Hence He highlighted that widow’s offering.
Some times we may be in a situation of financial crisis, our friends or people close to us may ask us for money . we may say no to them. We may say to God ” I have only small saving, which is not sufficient for my need. Sorry God, I can’t lend money to him”. But our God will not be pleased by our answer. What he expects is we must help them. He knows if we have much money we will surely lend them. But God wants to check (test) us, do we really have a helping nature . In most of times we fail. When we like that widow help others with our small contribution, surely God will Bless us. Let God give us Grace to help others.

“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and pin your spirit, which are God’s.”- 1 Corin 6:2
Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 1Pet 1:18-19
Jesus Christ have redeem us with His own Blood, hence none of should think that we are useless or waste…
