Give first preference to God.

​”Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” – Psalms 51:10

 In Psalms 51 chapter we read about the confession of King David. He was convicted of sin with Bathsheba. Hence he with a broken heart seek  God for His forgiveness.  Here David ask God to create a clean heart and right spirit  in him. 

When people of Israel was in battle with their enemies , David being a King should have  been there in battle. But he was in palace at that time, this shows he was led by a wrong spirit,  which in turn led into a sin with Bathsheba. 

 This can be compare to our spirutual battle. During church hour we must go and attend church. If we do not go to church on Sundays, and go to some other place and spend time in vainly then we will get into trouble, this shows we are led by wrong spirit. Surely we will commit sin. Hence we need to be careful, attend Sunday worship , Bible studies . we must give first preference to God and seek him. The right spirit always urges us to attend church meeting. Let God give us Grace to seek him presence diligently. 

“Teach me to do thy will; for thou [art] my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.” – Psa 143:10

The Lost Coin !

“Either what woman having ten pieces(coin) of silver, if she lose one piece(Coin), doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.”  Luke 15:8-9

This lost coin is we (I and you). Once we were lost in this world following things of this world. We didn’t know there is a living loving God Jesus Christ. As a coin is non living thing , there was no life in our  spiritual life. We were not content, in our education, job, money or family life. Nothing was not able to satisfy us, but when our loving Jesus found us, There came life in our lives, We got a peace, joy, satisfaction and true happiness that this world cannot give. Thank Jesus Christ our beloved saviour, who found us , saved us, made worthy to be with Him in eternity. Let us pray to God receive His Grace to be caught up in His coming…

Hope never dies

” I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.” Psa 118:17

The above verses is a very beautiful versus. It hope to the people in hopeless situation. Our trial may be sickness, financial crisis, depression, exam failure, joblessness , anything may be our problem which drives us to end our lives, But we must not die, our hope, trust, faith in God will make us to succeed in our life. One thing we note here is, king David encourages in himself towards God. There may be situation where no one is there to encourage or comfort but still our Lord Jesus will strengthen and comfort us.

Eternal Kingdom awaited!

2Timothy 1:12 “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”
Apostle Paul said the above verses. He was sure that Lord Jesus Christ who called him, is able to preserve him until the day of redemption . God who have called us is able to preserve us until his coming (rapture). We need only to believe in Him. It is difficult to live a christian life but it is not difficult to believe in Jesus Christ. If a Christian says there is no trials or sufferings in their life, it only shows that they are far away from Jesus. Jesus will test our faith when are close to Him. If we suffer with Jesus , we shall also reign in His kingdom. The suffering Christian Life along with Jesus Christ makes life easy and beautiful. In suffering Christian life if we forget Jesus , then we will feel the suffering.  Let God give us His everlasting Grace to endure this suffering and reign with Him in Eternity.
