Lighting another Candle


Lighting another Candle

Kramer was a great pianist. Some said he was the greatest pianist in his time. He lived in a small town where the people were poor and the living was simple. He himself had been poor once and he never forgot that his roots were in his hometown. So despite being rich, brilliant and famous, he lived in a modest house in the heart of the little town. He had long since retired from being a concert pianist, and now he lived with his wife and his children. But Kramer was not happy. He was still brilliant and he wanted to do something more than live an easy life. One day, he hit upon the idea of giving piano lessons to the young people in the town. His wife was displeased to say the least, "Why should you do that?" she asked her husband. "Everyone will want to be as rich and famous as you. And then you will lose all the distinction you have earned so hard." Kramer said, "A candle loses nothing, after all by lighting another candle." So he started giving lessons to the young men and women in the town and sure enough, he discovered reserves of great talent. One young man especially had the potential to be brilliant. Kramer concentrated hard on him. And soon he was as versatile a musician as Kramer had once been. He became known as Kramer's protégé and Kramer personally saw that he debuted at one of the greatest stages in Europe. The young man was received with thunderous applause at the end of the concert. He stood up to take a bow and was asked to give a speech, so exquisite had been his playing. In his speech he thanked his parents and his friends who have been so supportive and finally he dedicated his speech to Kramer. He said, "I could never have done it without you, Sir." He said this with tears in his eyes, "You have helped to lighten this candle and I promise to make you proud." This was the greatest accolades Kramer had received in his life.

Think Over!



I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone.

What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?

What if we turned back to go and get it if we forgot to take it with us?

What if we flipped through it several times a day?

What if we used to receive messages from the text?

What if we treated it like we couldn’t live without it?

What if we gave it as gifts to kids?


What if we gave it as gift during weddings?

What if we used it as we traveled?

What if we used it in case of emergency?

What if we upgraded it to get the latest version?

The great thing is unlike our cell phone, we don’t ever have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because...

Jesus already paid the bill !!  

Christian Quotes

If God knows everyone, why doesn't everyone know God?

Truth may hurt, but lies kill the soul.

Without Christ, there is no freedom.

God died for you. Are you living for him?

Finding Faith is as easy as losing it, just as long you are looking for it.

Faith is a tool, not a toy.

God will bring the right people in your life to fulfill His will, and He will put people out of the way that are trying to stop it.

The Bible is your sword. USE IT!

Spread the Word, it won't give them illnesses, but it will give them hope.

Where there is darkness, there is Light around.

When times are hard and you can not see the light, remember what He said. Walk by faith, not by sight.

Don't worry about anything, pray about everything.

Open up your mouth and use your voice to praise him, or you can just close it and satisfy the devil, choose one.

You are the light, shine on those who are in the dark.

The devil is here to kill, still and destroy, so why are you GIVING your everything?

Faith is personal, but never private.

God is always there for us, no matter where we are.

No matter what you have done, God loves you. So smile and enjoy life.

"Dear God, don't let me have him back until I have learned to LOVE you first."

Knowing God is one thing, Living for Him is another.

Faith that's bold will always be told.
Faith that's weak will never speak.

No one can live a perfect life... until they have a heart like Jesus... a mind like God... and a soul full of the Holy Spirit, which brings the mind and heart to the only destiny that will give you peace everlasting: Heaven.

It's not a bad thing to try and then fail at being a good Christian, because Jesus is always there to lift you up again... never trying at all, however, is a different story.

Think of the fire that the Apostles, Peter and Paul had burning in their hearts about God... Where would Christianity be today without that fire?... That same fire... needs to be in us... today...

THE WRONG FUNERAL




God doesn't make mistakes. He puts us where  we are to be.
They say there are no mistakes, for everything there is a purpose.
Makes you think... Enjoy! We'll never know where our paths will take us!  

  
This is really beautiful.. .. Consumed by my loss, I didn't notice the hardness of the pew where I sat. I was at the funeral of my dearest friend - my mother. She finally had lost her long battle with cancer. The hurt was so intense; I found it hard to breathe at times. Always supportive, Mother clapped loudest at my school plays, held box of tissues while listening to my first heartbreak, comforted me at my father's death, encouraged me in college, and prayed for me my entire life. When mother's illness was diagnosed, my sister had a new baby and my brother had recently married his childhood sweetheart, so it fell on me, the 27-year-old middle child without entanglements, to take care of her. I counted it an honor. 'What now, Lord?' I asked sitting in church.

My life stretched out before me as an empty abyss. My brother sat stoically with his face toward the cross while clutching his wife's hand. My sister sat slumped against her husband's shoulder, his arms around her as she cradled their child... All so deeply grieving, no one noticed I sat alone.
 

My place had been with our mother, preparing her meals, helping her walk, taking her to the doctor, seeing to her medication, reading the Bible together. Now she was with the  Lord.

My work was finished, and I was alone. I  heard a door open and slam shut at the back of the church. Quick footsteps hurried along the carpeted floor....

An exasperated young man looked around briefly and then sat next to me. He folded his hands and placed them on his lap. His eyes were  brimming with tears. He began to sniffle. 'I'm late,' he explained, though no explanation was necessary. After several eulogies, he leaned over and commented, 'Why do they keep calling Mary by the name of 'Margaret?'' 'Because, that was her name, Margaret.  Never Mary, no one called her 'Mary,'' I whispered. I wondered why this person couldn't have sat on the other side of the church. He interrupted my grieving with his tears and fidgeting.  Who was this stranger anyway?

'No, that isn't correct,' he insisted, as several people glanced over at us whispering, 'Her name is Mary, Mary Peters.' 'That isn't who this is.' 'Isn't this the Lutheran church?' 'No, the Lutheran church is across the street.' 'Oh.' 'I believe you're at the wrong funeral, Sir.' 

  
The solemnness of the occasion mixed with the realization of the man's mistake bubbled up inside me and came out as laughter. I cupped my hands over my face, hoping it  would be interpreted as sobs. The creaking pew gave me away..  Sharp looks from other mourners only made the situation seem more  hilarious. I peeked at the bewildered, misguided man seated beside me. He was laughing; too, as he glanced around, deciding  it was too late for an uneventful exit. I imagined Mother  laughing. At the final 'Amen,' we darted out a door and into the parking lot. 'I do believe we'll be the talk of the town,' he  smiled. He said his name was Rick and since he had missed his aunt's funeral, asked me out for a cup of coffee.

That afternoon began a lifelong journey for me with this man who attended the wrong funeral, but was in the right place. A year after our meeting, we were married at a country church where he was the assistant pastor. This time we both arrived at the  same church, right on time...
 

In my time of sorrow, God gave me laughter. In place of loneliness, God  gave me love. This past June, we celebrated our twenty-second wedding anniversary. Whenever anyone asks us how we met, Rick tells them, 'Her mother and my Aunt Mary introduced us, and it's truly a match made in heaven.'
 

If you Love God, and are not ashamed of all the marvelous things he has done for you, Pls share others.
REMEMBER, God doesn't make mistakes. He puts us where we are meant to be.

Spiritual Needs in Japan


Spiritual Needs in Japan

The spiritual needs in Japan are great.  Japan is regarded as one of the most resistant countries in the world. 

  • The Japanese are the 2nd largest unreached people group in the world.   
  • (Shaikh people of Bangladesh are the largest)
  •                 There are still 1,700 towns & villages without a single church
  • True born-again believers represent less than one percent (this is less than some Muslim countries).
  • The number of new believers each year is almost completely offset by the number that fall away. 
  • There has been very little progress during the past 50 years in spite of intensive missionary efforts. 
  • The growth in the number of Christians has declined from 4.6% per year (following WWII) to less than 0.4% currently. 
  • At the current growth rate it would take 1,200 years to bring the percentage of Christians up to only 7% of the population. 
  • There has been a serious decline in interest & openess to the Gospel. 
  • Most of the churches are very small. 
  • There is a shortage of Japanese pastors (86% of them are over 50 years old). 
  • There is a shrinking missionary force. The number of missionaries has shrunk by approx. 20% during the past 20 years.

The Fallacy of Full-Time Christian Work


The Fallacy of Full-Time Christian Work
TGIF Today God Is First Volume 1 by Os Hillman
Saturday, March 19 2011

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." - Colossians 3:23-24

"I didn't know you were in full-time Christian work," said my close friend as we were driving. "I didn't realize that," she went on. I responded, "Every person who has followed the will of God in their life is in full-time Christian work." God calls some to the mission field, others to be accountants, and others to be advertising executives, and still others to be construction workers. God never made a distinction between sacred and secular. In fact, the Hebrew word avodah is the root word having the same meaning of "work" and "worship." God sees our work as worship.
We have incorrectly elevated the role of the Christian worker to be more holy and committed than the person who is serving in a more secular environment. Yet the call to the secular workplace is as important as any other calling. God has to have His people in every sphere of life. Otherwise, many would never come to know Him because they would be separated from society.
I learned this lesson personally when I sought to go into "full-time" service as a pastor in my late twenties, only to have God thrust me back into the business world unwillingly. This turned out to be the best thing He could have done for me, because it was never His will for me to be a pastor. He knew I was more suited for the workplace.
We are all in missions. Some are called to foreign lands. Some are called to the jungles of the workplace. Wherever you are called, serve the Lord in that place. Let Him demonstrate His power through your life so that others might experience Him through you today and see your vocation as worship to His glory.

Pray for India


1. We live in a nation where Rice is Rs.40/- per kg and Sim Card is free.

2. Pizza reaches home faster than Ambulance and Police.

3. Car loan @ 5% but education loan @ 12%.

4. Students with 45% get in elite institutions thru quota system and those with 90% get out because of merit.

5. Where a millionaire can buy a cricket team instead of donating the money to any charity. 2 IPL teams are auctioned at 3300 crores and we are still a poor country where people starve for 2 square meals per day.

6. Where the footwear, we wear, are sold in AC showrooms, but vegetables, that we eat, are sold on the footpath.

7. Where everybody wants to be famous but nobody wants to follow the path to be famous.

8. Assembly complex buildings are getting ready within one year while public transport bridges alone take several years to be completed.

9. Where we make lemon juices with artificial flavors and dish wash liquids with real lemon.

Think about it and pray for the country.

A Glass of Milk – Paid In Full

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.” He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”
As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.
Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.
After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:

“Paid in full with one glass of milk”

+++Temptation does not come from God!+++

+++Temptation does not come from God!+++



A temptation is an enticement to do wrong through a promise of pleasure which makes spiritually crippled. Temptation do not come from God but they come from Satan (Matthew 4:1), his evil angels (Ephesians 6:12) or from ourselves (Romans 13:14; Galatians 5:13).Temptations can be in the form of pride, lust and sexual desires, money, power, job, possessions, by immodest women, desiring to worship false God, desiring to live in sinful life


Temptations are opportunities that either it will strengthen us or corrupt us morally which lead us in bad path. When they come along, we are given a choice to either turn away with God’s help or surrender to the temptation. We must be spiritually minded to resist temptation, realizing that eternal spiritual values are more important that temporary earthly pleasure or gain. We should never fantasize about sinful thoughts. We can overcome temptation through Prayer, scripture reading, by resisting or avoiding it.

Here is what the bible says

Matt. 6:13; Mk. 14:38; Lk. 11:4 - "lead us not into temptation, but deliver from evil"

I Cor. 7:5 - "lest Satan tempt you because of lack of control"

I Cor. 10:13 - "no trial/temptation has overtaken you but as is common to man... God will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able... with the trial/temptation will provide the way of escape..."

Gal. 6:1 - "restore the one caught in a trespass...lest you too be tempted"

I Thess. 3:5 - "for fear that the tempter might have tempted you..."

I Tim. 6:9 - "those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare"

Heb. 2:18 - "He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted"

Heb. 4:15 - "tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin"

James 1:13,14 - "Let no one say when he is tempted, 'I am being tempted by God'; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt any one. But each one is tempted when he is seduced under his own desires."

II Pet. 2:9 - "the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation"

+++Some Bible verses to spot Fake Christian!+++

+++Some Bible verses to spot Fake Christian!+++

Having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 2 Timothy 3:5

Then the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness. Luke 11:39

So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain. 32 Indeed you are to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear your words, but they do not do them. Ezekiel 33:31-32

From their callous hearts comes iniquity the evil conceits of their minds know no limits. Psalm 73:7

But see, there is joy and revelry, slaughtering of cattle and killing of sheep, eating of meat and drinking of wine! "Let us eat and drink," you say, "for tomorrow we die!" Isaiah 22:13

Woe to those who rise early in the morning to run after their drinks,
who stay up late at night till they are inflamed with wine. Isaiah 5:11

Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with destruction.
Their throat is an open grave; with their tongue they speak deceit. Psalm 5:9

Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception. Psalm 12:2

He who leads the upright along an evil path will fall into his own trap,
but the blameless will receive a good inheritance. Proverbs 28:10

They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. 2 Peter 2:19
For they brag about their evil desires;they praise the greedy and curse the LORD. Psalm 10:3

Three Sins that Christians Commit in Weddings

Three Sins that Christians Commit in Weddings

Note: Indian- Christians can easily relate to this article. Christians from other parts of the Globe can also read this article to understand the sad state of Christianity in India.

1.Caste system

Caste system is very much prevelant in India. For the un-initiated, Caste system is the Indian version of Racism. Caste system is a concept of Hinduism. It is a Hinutva Varnasrama concept in which human beings are segregated as Brahmin, Shathriya, Vaishnavite, Sutra and caste names like Nadar, Vanniyar, Dhevar,Vellalar, Pallar, Parayar. Some of these castes are labelled as High castes and some of the castes come under the category of untouchables. Majority of Christians in India are still bound by the Caste system. 67 % of marriages in India are arranged marriages and most Parents search for a suitable bride for their son from their same caste. A Vellalar would hunt for a vellalar. A Nadar would hunt for a Nadar and so on. Nothing wrong in finding a life partner from the same community. But If your mindset is deeply rooted to the caste system, you need a reality check my dear.
If you are a parent searching for a bride/groom for your Son/daughter just check whether you have a sense of Caste (Racist) system?
If the answer is Yes, check whether you are actually Saved.
Who created you? Jehovah or Brahma? Decide today.
Galatians 3:28 [ There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.]

2) Auspicious Days

Many Christians won't get married on saturdays. A wedding on 13th day of the month brings bad luck. These are some of the beliefs of Christians. Some Christians even consult calenders and astrologers to find auspicious days for conducting the wedding. They even quote scripture verses saying that the wisemen followed the star to find Jesus. They also quote scriptures that say that stars were created by God for signs.
Rather than trusting the stars, Have Faith on the One who made the stars.
Deuteronomy 18:10 [There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.]

3) Dowry
Dowry is another practise in which the Bride groom's parents demand Money/ Property/ Movable assets/Immovable assets/ Car from the Bride's family as a pre-requisite for the wedding. This is very much in practise in southern most part of India (Nagercoil - My native place and also Nellai Dist.).
If you are a Christian and If you are guilty of the above three Crimes, there is only one solution
REPENT to God with complete submission and ask God to forgive you and Save you. We have a loving Heavenly father who forgives a repentant sinner.

+++ No Divorce and No Remarriage! +++

+++ No Divorce and No Remarriage! +++


No Divorce and No Remarriage!
Today, divorce and re marriage have become socially acceptable in our society. Everyday, we come across a lot of people including our families, friends, neighbors who have been divorced and remarried. Jesus explained how God had made marriage in the beginning and instructed that “what therefore God has joined together, let no man separate” (Matt 9:6). In a true marriage husband and wife are one because they are both parts of the body of Christ and are to reflect The unity of Christ and the church, The sacrificial love of Christ for the church The headship of Christ over the church, and the submission of the church to Him and The perfecting of the church by Christ. As Christ perfects the church, the husband perfects the wife and the wife perfects the husband.
Bible is clear that God hates divorce, that He considers the marriage vow as a sacred covenant. The divine and Gods standard for marriage is lifelong commitment to one's spouse. In an news article called “Americans Marry too much” By Pat Wingert | NEWSWEEK we see that We are quick to divorce, repartner, and remarry faster than people in any other country. We don’t see in biblical times remarriage occurring very frequently as occurring in our country. Every individual is created differently just because we have different opinions and disagreements in the marriage , it should not be a ground for divorce and remarriage as no one can find a perfect partner.
Divorce causes remarriage and remarriage causes repeated and continues adultery. Remarriages also equally considered a sin. In Mark 10:11, 12 says “Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery”. Divorce e/remarriage/adultery is not just a one time act but a continuous state of adultery and will exclude one from the kingdom of God. Yet, divorce and remarriage is a sin that can be forgiven just as murder or lying, if one confesses and forsakes it.
The Bible is clear that only unmarried and the widows can remarry.
1 Cor 7:8-9 “Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I am. But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.”
Rom 7:2 “For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage.”
As more and more people divorce, the church too easily accepts divorce as normal. Our laws now make obtaining a divorce an easy thing, thus encouraging many to give up on the marriage and choose what looks like an easier solution.

+++ God's Letter for Married Women!+++

+++ God's Letter for Married Women!+++



Dear women,
This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:23

Woman as the helper, life-giver, and nurturer Genesis 1:27; 1 Corinthians 11:8-12

I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you. Genesis 3:16

But women will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety. 1 Timothy 2:15

In the same way, you wives must accept the authority of your husbands, even those who refuse to accept the Good News. Your godly lives will speak to them better than any words. They will be won over Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight . That is the way the holy women of old made themselves beautiful. They trusted God and accepted the authority of their husbands. For instance, Sarah obeyed her husband, Abraham, when she called him her master. You are her daughters when you do what is right without fear of what your husbands might do. 1 Peter 3:1-6

Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Titus 2:3-5

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. 1 Peter 3:3-5

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Colossians 3:18

The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones .Proverbs 12:4

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:8

But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord. 1 Corinthians 7:34

I also want women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God. 1 Timothy 2:9-10

A woman must not wear men's clothing, nor a man wear women's clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this. Deuteronomy 22:5

You will keep in perfect peace in him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Isaiah 26:3

But because of immoralities, each man is to have his own wife, and each woman is to have her own husband. 1 Corinthians 7:3-5

Train a child when young...old not depart .Prov 22:6

Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. 1 Corinthians 7:5

A kindhearted woman gains respect, but ruthless men gain only wealth. Proverbs 11:16

Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak Matthew 26:41

Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent Psalm 4:4

Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. Psalm 34:13

A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. 1 Timothy 2:11-12

For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world. Ephesians 6:12-13

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7.

He heals the Brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3

For nothing is impossible with God. Luke 1:37

You may not know me, but I know everything about you. Psalm 139:1

Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

Love,

The Holy God

+++ Satan always attacks mind! +++

+++ Satan always attacks mind! +++


Satan is a master of deception and he delights in confusing us, creating division in marriage, destroying us mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Satan’s most frequent and consistent attack is directed against our minds when he attacks he wants us to be away from God and his purpose for our life and to destroy us so that we can end up in hell. The Bible says that we are transformed by the renewing of our minds. Our minds are thus the battlefield.

Both God and demons will come after your mind. God will try and pull you into His ways of living in this life and demons will try and pull you into their dark ways of living in this life. THERE is a great battle to-day over the use and control of the mind, not only in the world, but among the children of God. When the mind is renewed, the Spirit of God fulfils the promise of God, where He says, "I will put my laws in their hearts, and in their minds will I write them” (Heb. 10.16). Thus we obtain the "mind" of Christ (1 Cor. 2.16). Always remember, Satan will continually try to take the legitimate circumstances in your life and turn them into an attack upon God’s verity and your Christian character.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:3

The sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so. Romans 8:7

James 1:14-15 says, “Each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin.”

The only way we can overcome Satan is standing firm by dressing in the armour of God and covering ourselves and our loved ones with the blood of Jesus Christ with constant prayer and fasting. . In James 4:7 we are told to: Submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
As the Bible says in 1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

Ephesians 6:11 – 12 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

Luke 22:40: On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."

Four Wives


Once upon a time there was a rich King who had four wives. He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest of delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.

He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to neighbouring kingdoms. However, he feared that one day she would leave him for another.

He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidant and was always kind, considerate and patient with him. Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in her, and she would help him get through the difficult times.

The King"s 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdom. However, he did not love the first wife. Although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her!

One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short. He thought of his luxurious life and wondered, I now have four wives with me, but when I die, I"ll be all alone."

Thus, he asked the 4th wife, "I have loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I"m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?"

"No way!", replied the 4th wife, and she walked away without another word. Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.

The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you all my life. Now that I"m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?"

"No!", replied the 3rd wife. "Life is too good! When you die, I"m going to remarry!" His heart sank and turned cold.
He then asked the 2nd wife, "I have always turned to you for help and you"ve always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?"

"I"m sorry, I can"t help you out this time!", replied the 2nd wife. "At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave." Her answer struck him like a bolt of lightning, and the King was devastated.

Then a voice called out: "I"ll go with you. I"ll follow you no matter where you go." The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was very skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect. Greatly grieved, the King said, "I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!"

In truth, we all have the 4 wives in our lives:

Our 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it will leave us when we die.

Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all go to others.

Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.

And our 1st wife is our Soul - often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world. However, our Soul is the only thing that will follow us wherever we go. Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of us that will follow us to the throne of God and continue with us throughout Eternity.

Thought for the day: Remember, when the world pushes you to your knees, you"re in the perfect position to pray
