Candles In The Night

The following inspiring allegorical story by Max Lucado contains a very important lesson for everyone God has called to be a light in the world. A few nights ago a peculiar thing happened. An electrical storm caused a blackout in our neighborhood. When the lights went out I felt my way through the darkness into […]

A Minimum Wages God

If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it. [Matt 10:39, NLT] I am a self-made person. I need only about ten rupees worth of God and Jesus – could I buy ten rupees worth of gospel, please? Not too much – […]

Bearers of God’s Image

So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them [Gen 1:27, NLT] The fact that we are made in the Image of God marks us out from all other living creatures.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn [Luke 2:7] The real Christmas was nothing like the Christmas as we know it today. It does not look anything like the manger scenes and illustrated books […]

Love Like Jesus

The Lord has made his salvation known…He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God [Psa 98:2-3] It is impossible to truly experience the love of God and not love others. His love has this incredible ability to heal us and empower us at the […]
