Yes Christmas just got over and there was joy all around. We sang carol and decorated the houses because it was a season of joy. And we heard the passage where the angels bring the news of Jesus birth and say good tidings and great joy. Jesus birth brought great joy and its the gospel and the good news to be shared to all the people in the earth. 

  • How is the effect of gospel in your life. 
  • Are you happy that you have heard the gospel? 
  • What change did the gospel bring into your every day living? . 
  • Is your life bubbling with joy and happiness. 
  • Has the gospel broken you of all chains that held you down and set you free to leap with joy because of the freedom and power it has brought into your life? 
It was supposed to be a good news with good good tidings and of great joy

A tree is known by the fruit. There is no difficulty to name the tree when you see the fruit in it. It takes time and wisdom or knowledge to name a tree without fruit based on the leaves, or appearance. But when there are fruits even a child can mane it. Bible in Mathew 7 says the following

15“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

How are the fruits in your life? 
Are you finding it difficult to find out its effect?

  • How is your life?
  • How is the life of those around you?
  • Is there freedom?
  • Is there joy?
  • Is the overcoming power of God working in and through you?
  • How much of Jesus are people able to see in you?

If the gospel has not brought freedom, joy and power into your life...... how on earth do you think you can influence others?

Lets think..... and experience the power of gospel in our life so that it just becomes contagious and influences every person crossing your path.

Have a great day.... thinking and stirring yourself.

Colossians 2:!3 says
When you were dead in your sins and in the circumcision of your flesh, God made you[d] alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins
ALL our sins were forgiven in Christ. It means even before you were born your sins were forgiven in Christ.
Psalms 139: 16 says
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be
...... how true!!! Even before we were born he has ordained a forgiven life for us in Christ.
Colossians 1:22 says
But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation--
So now not only are our sins forgiven we are presented as holy, without blemish and free from accusation in front of God. This is the NEW CREATION and NEW IDENTITY in Christ.
So today let us examine how our prayer life is. Are we still going and confessing our sins and seeking forgiveness which was already done? Are we asking God to repeat the process of forgiveness when we all know Christ cannot be crucified again and again daily to forgive us. WE ARE FORGIVEN FROM PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE SIN ONCE AND FOR ALL.
So today let us pray and ask God to reveal his love and receive forgiveness even when we sin in our day to day life. We do fall ........ but let us be quick to get up and run away from sin not because of fear of hell or punishment but because we have a God who has already forgiven all our wrong doings and has given us a new identity of holy and righteous child.
Let us lead a life today knowing we are the NEW CREATION AND THE OLD HAS GONE. Let go of the old and embrace the new nature.
Have a great day.

Information Vs Knowledge

If you have been some one who was born in a so called Christian family with faith in Jesus you will KNOW these things

  1. God is love and good
  2. He is with us  and has all good things in store for us
  3. He died to set me free from sin, sickness and curse
  4. He gives me eternal life and blesses me
  5. He knows my name and is always on my side
  6. We are a new creation and there is no condemnation 
We all can for sure raise the hand and say I know these things. The truth is since we have heard it so many times we know it. All these things are in our mind and we KNOW IT. These information are like the currency notes you have accumulated in  the Spiritual realm. Since you know the promises of God and believe in it you are rich. You can quote when one word is said. You know it, you can quote it, you can explain it and you can believe in it. 

But the known information is all the currency you have accumulated.  But money is of no use when its not used wisely and at times of need. A person may have billions in his account and starve to death if he is either not aware of the money in his account or not willing to use it to buy his necessities. Such a guy is called a fool who has the source and does not use it when needed.

Bible calls us to taste and see the Lord is good. 

Bible says taste and see that the Lord is good. We are not called to just know that he is good.  You cannot realise the potential and power of money unless you put it into use. God calls us to put to use the information we have of him. Knowledge is not going to bring the change and the blessings in our life. We need to take the initiative to put every single thing into practice and use them. We are not called to gain knowledge but we are called to experience our relationship with the living God based on what we have been told in the bible. 

Today in your life,  what ever situation you may be facing..... put the information you have about God to use. Just believe it and use it in your situation. Don't use your logical reasoning in explaining the nature of God. He is more than what your  mind can perceive. Just like a child...... who believes on what the parent says Believe in what he has said and turn your information into a life changing experience. Simply believe and put to use and see massive change in your life. Putting to  use the information you have about God will help you to shift your focus from human perspective to Spiritual perspective. What is impossible in human perspective is possible in the Spiritual realm as God who is all powerful works in ways beyond what human mind can think, imagine or perceive.

Today.. take a conscious step to TASTE and SEE that God is good in all true to all he has said in the Bible and to you over the years.

Have a great day.

How to please God


Kids do a lot to please their parents. They try to do good things, behave well, get good grades and do what we want.

Are you reading the bible regularly to please him, praying regularly to please him, doing things in church and telling gospel to please him, are you always thinking of ways to please God.

Its all very good but do you know Hebrews 11:6 says And without faith it is impossible to please God,
because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Colosians 2:6 says So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,

Lets leave the performance mentality just as the kids have these days........ lets live by faith pleasing God knowing that he loves us irrespective of what we do........... his love is not dependent on what we do............. lets today try to live as children of God with a sense of freedom. Lets do things out of love and the freedom we have in God and not with a small thought that God is getting pleased based on what you do.
Leave the performance mentality....... lead a guilt free..... live a condemnation free life. Live a life of freedom knowing that you are his child and he love you so much that there is nothing on heaven or earth or anywhere else that has the power to separate you from his love.

Have a fabulous day.

How is man the image of God?

The dictionary meaning of image is 

  • A representation of the external form of a person or thing in art:
  • A visible impression obtained by a camera, telescope, microscope, or other device, or displayed on a computer or video screen:
  • An optical appearance or counterpart produced by light from an object reflected in a mirror or refracted through a lens.
We have heard and read this verse a thousand times. Have you ever thought of it. 
  1. How is it I am the image of God?
  2. He created the external form as man and woman - then how is it both are his image?
  3. In what way is man the form of God?
God is a trinity....... three in one.......... three but one........... in the same way man is made up of 3 parts.
  • Spirit - which is eternal and was breathed into man by God.
  • Soul - which is made up of emotions, feelings will power, mind
  • Body - in the physical part that exist and is visible and used through out the life on earth.

We are a New Creation

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17
We are in Christ. Do you feel as a new creation? Has the old gone? How is this verse true in our everyday life?

The bible verse is true. We are made new in the Spirit. Our body does not change. Our thinking pattern, attitude, personality does not change. But our Spirit is made completely new for eternity. 

WE ARE A NEW CREATION. Its true. Lets continue to meditate on this truth in the days to come.
