“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ” – philipians 3:8

Jesus Christ have already won us by sacrificing himself on cross. We must win back christ in order to be with him for ever in eternity.

How can we win christ?
Ans: We must live a life which pleases God in all the aspects.

Jesus Christ set a perfect example for us. We must be like Jesus.  God the Lord gave 10 commandments in old testament but Jesus made those 10 commmand to 2 commandments of Love.

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Mattew 22:37,39

To love our friends, family members is easy, but to forgive and love our enemies is very difficult in our daily life. But if we have a desire to go to heaven and sit beside Jesus the we need to love our enemies.It is difficult with our own knowledge and mind but Lord Jesus will give Grace and help us to love all. Let us run the race with one goal of winning Jesus Christ !!!

Purpose of birth of Jesus christ

image

  Jesus Christ was born in this world for to correct the mistake of fallen man. In this month of december we remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

The relationship of God and adam was like father and son. Adam is called the son of God. Since the fall of Adam, God sent him out of eden garden. Eden garden had the tree of life, since man committed sin, father had to take strict decision and sent him out.  God prevented man to eat fruit of tree of life and live in fallen sinful nature for eternal.
Hence our saviour Jesus christ was born to correct man’s sin. Jesus Christ way to correcting mankind was different way. He gave only two Commandments. Two commandments were of Commandments of Love. Jesus christ led a perfect life, sacrificed himself for the redemption of mankind.
The relation of Jesus and church is compared to bridegroom and bride. This relationship is stronger than the previous relationship of  father and son i.e. God and adam.
Hence we who live in the period if grace enjoy the mercy of God  for His forgiveness. 

Jesus loved us so much, that He humbled himself,came down from heaven, was born on this earth in human form , overcame sin, led a perfect holy life , died on cross and resurrected. Now He is waiting for His beloved Bride(Church).   let us be  prepared to meet our bridegroom.
” For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16

Oh! that LOVE sought me !!

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”- Romans 5:8

 Even thou man committed sin and fell from perfection , but still God didn’t give up his eternal plan concerning mankind. He gave them commandments and law, sacrifice of animals was not able to correct man’s sin. 

Finally Jesus Christ Himself came in the form of human led a perfect life in this world  to redeem us from sin. That is the Love of Calvary. A love that cannot be described by words. His expression of love to man was to sacrifice himself to win man kind. 

Past thousands of years since the creation of man, but still God seeks , saves him from the sin. That is the greatest love that God has on man.

We are the most blessed people on this earth, whom God has saved. Let us pray to Jesus Christ , so that other unsaved people should also get saved. Praise God always.

Who will be caught up in second coming of Jesus Christ (Rapture) !!!

Jesus Christ :”I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 

Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.” Luke – 17:34-36

No one predict who will be caught up in second coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ. But above verses give  clue about Rapture(Second coming of Jesus Christ)

 two men in one bed:  who can be on bed – brothers, sisters, husband & wife, children and a parents. Mostly closely related persons sleep together. Among them  one will taken and  other  will be left behind.
Two women grinding together- house : this can be compared to house of God . in the church only one part of believers will be taken and others will be left behind.

Two men in the field:  This can be viewed in two perspective way. 

a) Our work place: we physically work. There one will be caught up and other will be left behind.

b) Field : spiritually where saved and unsaved people live together. Only those saved people who preserve the salvation, love , holiness and faith until coming of Christ will be caught up in Rapture. 

In above all verses we read one thing common, one will be taken and other will be left behind. This shows only 50% will caught up, and the remaining 50% will be left behind group. By the Grace of God let us be in caught up group.

Let us pray and receive  Grace of Jesus to be seen in His Coming.

Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” Jude 1:21
  

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…

His Mercy Endureth forever !!

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..
