Death, the end of the beginning. Its not even the beginning of the end,lest we say its the end of ends.

On Valentines

Love, it give meaning to our lives. We live by it, we die by it. We celebrate it in every moment,

In the cry of an infant when momma is not around
In the waiting of the child when dadda comes home late
In the loneliness of the brother when sibling fell sick and no one to fight and play with
In the joyous tear of the young man when he first cried thinking of God’s sacrifice
In the strength he feels as he travels through pain and a friend stands by
In the bubby-twinkle happiness when he shares his life with his best half
In the euphoria of conquering world when he first holds his own child

Its there all along and we long for it as Storge (affection of family), as Philia (love of friend), and as Eros (romantic love). But until we taste the sip of God’s Agape love, we cannot comprehend the fullness of all the other loves because he claims that He is love, the love personified, He is its source, He defines it and His love is UNCONDITIONAL.

Terms and conditions

Jesus is not begging, not even persuading anyone to be His disciple. He lays terms & conditions for “anyone who wants to be His disciple”. And these T&C costs pretty much everything you hold dear.

The cradle without a cross is meaningless.
The cross without an open tomb is hopeless.
The open tomb without an upper room is powerless.

Christmas

Shining stars, lightened trees, Santa Claus, red-nosed reindeer, gifts, embellished decor, plum-cakes, mistletoes, all-night carols, stumptous food & et.
Christmas is not about anyone of these.

Its all about why God has to stoop down so low to become man, to the level of helpless baby lying in that dirty stable’s manger.

Celebrate Jesus

300+ prophecies about him, spanning over 1000 years. Very minute details of his life – from places he will visit, words he would speak, authority he displays, his character which is sinless, bondages he breaks, and even his death which is torturous are foretold. And there is no one in the history whose coming to this world is as anticipated as his. And his name is Jesus.

The Gospel Truth

An idea that stood as the strongest in the history of mankind is the “Gospel Truth”. Even though it so scandalously claims that whoever believes in that one man (who claimed to be God) will receive forgiveness of sins and there by everlasting life, from the day those couple of poor women told they saw raised- from-dead-Jesus till this very day, those who confessed that belief were being slaughtered, lit up by fire , rejected from families, ridiculed and persecuted. Kings, emperors, nations and religions rose up against this truth, waging fierce wars to sweep this truth out of mankind. The so called church for many centuries fabricated it by adding burden to it, sold it for power, and now for pop acceptance. Despite all these battles, this Gospel Truth continues to emerge victorious by challenging and changing lives to whoever believes in it.

Blessed Good Friday

For the sins of my flesh, his flesh was torn
For the wickedness of my heart,he was agonised
For my careless life, he was intensely anguished.
For my addictions, he was pained excruciatingly.
For my unfaithfulness in relationships, his eternal relationship with his father is broken.

Still, I dare to call, the day he was crucified “Good” because he took the consequence of my life, bore the inevitable punishment of mine.
Now that I have hope. A hope that disgusting, loathsome ME, can be washed and become clean.

I received everything ..

I asked for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems to solve.
I asked for prosperity and God gave me brawn and brains to work.
I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome.
I asked for patience and God placed me in situations where I was forced to wait.
I asked for love and God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities.
I asked for everything so I could enjoy life.
Instead, He gave me life so I could enjoy everything.
I received nothing I wanted, I received everything I needed.

Life killed

My sin is so great, that it killed the only personified Life.
But his grace is much greater, it resurrected and cleansed away my sin.
