My Manna

"Fathers, do not exasperate your children, that they may not lose heart." Colossians 3:21.

​​​​Dads, looking for a little help in being a good father? 

One particular verse from the Bible really helps:
"Fathers, don't provoke your children, instead bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."

Irritation!
"Don't provoke your children." 
That means don't make unrealistic demands. 

Don't crush their spirit with being overly strict or with passive aloofness. 
Every child has a fragile psyche that needs to be built up and not torn down.

Intention!
"Bring them up in discipline." 
Discipline should be fair and consistent. 

They need to know what the boundaries are and know there are negative consequences if they ignore them. 
This gives children security and it helps them know they are loved.

Instruction!
"...and the instruction of the Lord." 
Discipline precedes instruction--any good teacher knows that. 

But discipline without instruction exasperates children. 
They need Dad to teach them right and wrong, and do it with love.

It's not easy being a good dad but we sure have a great model in our Heavenly Father revealed to us through Jesus.

Come to Christ! 

There are many nominal Christians. 

You joined a church, you have been baptized. 

Maybe in your church you were confirmed-
- but you really don’t know Christ. 

You’ve never had a real experience with Him so that He dominates and controls your life. 
You have not surrendered to the lordship of Christ.

If you are looking for purpose and meaning in life, give your life to Christ. 
Get into the cause of Jesus Christ and march in His army under His banner. 

We could use millions of people marching for Christ all over the world right now-
- taking love instead of hate to the world, 
- telling people how to be saved, 
- telling them how to find forgiveness and newness of life.

Jesus said, “I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.” John 17:4. 

God has given you something to do, too. 

Are you working on it? 
Have you finished it? 

You don’t have much time. 
Your life is a vapor, it’s a handbreadth, it’s grass that grows and withers. 

It may soon be over.
It may be over at any time.

Come to Christ!

Come now! 

We never know how long we have to live. 
That’s the reason the Bible says, “Prepare to meet your God.” Amos 4:12. 
Be ready at all times. “Be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Matthew 24:44. 
He’s coming again-- but He’s also coming to you in death one of these days. 
Are you ready?
Redeem the time. You don’t have very much of it. 
The days are evil.Life is very brief.The time is urgent. 
Don’t waste it. 
Because-You’re going to be held accountable at the Judgment. 
There is going to be a Judgment in which every word that you’ve ever spoken, every thought you’ve ever had, every moral choice you ever faced, everything you’ve ever done will be accountable at the Judgment. 

Time calls for immediate action. Now is the accepted time; today is the day of salvation. 
And Hebrews 3:15 says: “Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.” 
Come now! If God is whispering to you, come to Christ!

The heart of a harvester!

"Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest." Matthew 9:38.
How does the Lord suggest we gather plenty of workers to do His work on earth? 
He simply tells His followers to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out harvesters to share their faith in Jesus Christ with people who don’t know Him personally. 
Prayer is the starting point.
Now, some of you are thinking-“Thank goodness! I’m off the hook! I just have to pray about it! I don’t have to get involved, serve and take part in the harvest. I’ll just pray!” 
Does Jesus let us off so lightly? Not really. 
Jesus knows that when we begin to pray for harvesters, the scales will be removed from our eyes. He begins to reveal the world He sees. 
Then we’ll begin to see the people around us as He sees them. The Holy Spirit then convicts us to love them and pray for them to come to know Him. 
Over time God may use us to be the harvester.
So, when you begin to pray for the harvest, beware! 
God will open your eyes and you’ll be convicted of the needs all around you. 
He’ll transform your heart into the heart of a harvester!

In the Bible-Amos the prophet saw the Day of Judgment fast approaching for Israel. 
He warned the people to prepare to meet God. Truth is, the word preparedness should be a key word for everyone.
It is strange that we prepare for everything except meeting God. 
We prepare for marriage. We prepare for a career. We prepare for education.
But we do not prepare to meet God. 
Even though most people see the storm clouds gathering on the horizon, by and large we are making few preparations to meet God. 
This is a time for repentance and faith. It is a time for soul-searching, to see if our anchor holds.
Have you been to the cross where Christ shed His blood for your sins? Have you had the past forgiven? Have you come by faith, confessing that you are a sinner and receiving Christ as your Savior? 
I tell you that this cross is the only place of refuge in the midst of the storm of judgment that is fast approaching. 
Make sure of your relationship with God.​​

The ultimate Judge!

"Therefore, anyone of you who judges is without excuse. For when you judge another, you condemn yourself sense you, the judge, do the same thing." Romans 2:1.
Jesus Christ, in His ministry on the earth was a master, really a genius, at painting word pictures in ways that even a child could understand.
In what is referred to as “The Sermon on the Mount,” He was gathered before thousands along the Sea of Galilee and He painted a word picture about judging others.
He said something like this: ‘When you see someone with a speck (a little piece of dust- maybe a little grain of something) in their eye, and you go to them to try and get that speck out of their eye, and you’ve got a log in your own, well, you look like an idiot.’
Now, He didn’t use the words, “You look like an idiot,” but what He was seeking to communicate in painting the word picture is that we do look like idiots when we seek to judge others for what may be even a minor flaw in them, when we have a major flaw of sin in our life.
Jesus tells us, “Judge not, lest you be judged.” In other words, the way you judge others is the way that God is going to judge you.
When a person genuinely feels like they are basically good and are morally superior than those around them, or those they see or read about in the news, that’s a classic sign of a person that is far from God.
Because the closer we come to Christ, the more we’re aware of our own sinfulness.The further we are from God, the more we feel that we are basically good.
So, does that describe you? Is that really how you feel deep down inside?
If the answer is yes, it’s time for you to seek forgiveness and ask God to show you how you can let go of those thoughts of superiority and let Him be the judge.
Because-He is the ultimate judge

Welcome home!

"I say to you, that many shall come from east and west, and recline at the table with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 8:11.
Ever been to a family reunion?
But I’m here to tell you that a family reunion can be really, really great!
I want to tell you about the ultimate family reunion – one that we’ll all want to attend.
I’m speaking of what happens when Christians die.
Not only do we get to be with Christ-- we also get to be with those who have died in Christ before us and are enjoying the eternal family reunion in heaven – a reunion where everyone gets along.
Won’t that be something? Well, it won’t be if you miss it!
The good news is that we can be sure we make the ultimate family reunion by believing and knowing Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
And when we step over from this life to the next-- He’ll welcome us home with the greatest family reunion we can imagine.
I’m looking forward to that ultimate family reunion. I hope to see you there one day

Get it right now!

As a result of the disease of sin-- men and women are spoken of in Scripture as being dead in sin.
Paul said to the Ephesians, “And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience.” Ephesians 2:1,2.
We cannot save ourselves. We cannot pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps.
We can only put a little ointment here and a little ointment there to try to help us.
But we’re spiritually dead—physically alive and soulishly alive-- but spiritually dead.
We need life that only Christ can give by His resurrection. And He offers it to us today if we will come to Him by repentance and faith.
Will you receive His offer? It’s free.
You can have life and live more abundantly. And you don’t have to wait until you get to Heaven to get this spiritual life.
You get it right now!
The Holy Spirit comes to live within.And the Holy Spirit stays there for eternity.​​

Seriously?

When have you been in a situation-- when you desperately needed help?
Who did you turn to?
I was recently admonished by a very well-meaning person-“Paul, take care of yourself. No one else will.”

Seriously?
While I understand the challenge to be prudent about practical matters-I have every confidence that God will take care of me as though I was the only person He had to be concerned with.

Because God is my Help-I can turn to Him.
And He is your Help, too

"Gospel from India
Running out of time​!​


"People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God."
2 Timothy 3:2-4.

The Bible gives many examples of signs that should warn us of the coming end of the age.

Six such signs are given by Jesus, two characteristics are given by Paul, and eleven other occurrences are given by the prophets to occur prior to or soon after the end of the age.

While we are also told we will not know the time of the End-
God obviously wanted us to know when that time was getting closer.

As the Christian church is increasingly drawn into the interfaith movement, and as more and more churches go into isolation, preparing to sleep through the growing attacks on their faith, perhaps God knew it would take a few signs to wake us up and remind us that we have work to do.

So, let’s imagine a time in history when, “People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unloving, slanderous, without self-control, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding to a form of godliness but denying its power.”

What a description of many inside and outside of today’s churches!

Does this sound like today’s world or not?
So, when were these words penned?

Around 2,000 years ago in the Word of God.
This prediction was prefaced with these haunting words:
“But mark this: These will be terrible times in the last days.”

Sounds like we’re there.

How can we change?

God’s Word says, “the Scriptures are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.”

So study God’s Word.
Believe what it says about how to be saved from ungodly character.
Live what it says, for we all are running out of time!​​​

So it is in life!​
"I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands." Psalm 119:10.

I love this story.

You may have read it before, but it so beautifully illustrates the need to keep our eyes on Jesus, it’s worth another read.

Walking through freshly fallen snow, a father wanted to teach his son a key lesson in life.
He said, “Son, I’m going to walk to that tree about 50 feet ahead in a perfectly straight line.
Then I want you to do the same.”

The father walked to the tree.
He turned to look at his son, and they both observed the perfectly straight tracks in the snow.

Not wanting to fail the test, the son looked at his father and began to walk.
He looked down at his steps and veered to the left.
He looked up and corrected his course.
He looked down again.
He veered to the right and had to correct his course once more.
Arriving at the tree, his tracks told the story of his failure.

His father explained, “Son, as long as you focused on me, your tracks were straight. The moment you took your eyes off me, you got off track. The key is keeping your eyes on the goal.”

Repented?
Jesus told the truth about repentance.
He said, “Unless you repent, you will perish.”
Have you repented?
Repentance means change.
I change my mind about God, about myself, about my fellow man. I change my way of living.
But on my own I don’t have strength to change. I can’t change.
I can’t become a Christian. Why?
Because I’m “dead in trespasses and sins.” Ephesians 2:1.
God has to help me change. He has to help me repent.
And I have to say, “O God, help me to repent.”
Not only do we have to repent-- but by faith we must receive Christ into our hearts as Saviour and Lord.​​

Bottom line?

"...even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it and I will carry you; and I will bear you and I will deliver you." Isaiah 46:4
A hundred years ago, people lived an average of 47 years. Today many men live to be at least 75.
Many women live to be at least 80. As you get older, your skin wrinkles because it becomes thinner and less elastic.
Your bones become more visible as you store less fat beneath your skin. Inside the body, your bones and muscle become weaker.
Your memory gets worse, and your immune system can’t fight disease as easily. Retirement from work brings more leisure time, but it can also bring a sense of a loss of purpose in life.
Your income may be lower. Family and friends die or move away.
It may be time to move out of a house that has become too big and hard to maintain. Face it, your body wears out as you get older.
Bottom line? Growing old definitely is NOT for the faint of heart!
In Ecclesiastes, King Solomon agreed. He wrote of how the things we take for granted when we’re young cause us to lose delight in living when we’re old.
On top of that, without God, life can be meaningless. Ah, but with God, there is wisdom, strength, joy, and the hope that when the body finally gives out, there is life – real life – in heaven with God.
It’s something to remember when you’re young and when you’re old.
If you haven’t thought about what will happen when you leave this earth, read John 3:16. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.”
Don’t let another day go by without giving your life to Jesus. You’ll never have to wonder where you’ll spend eternity!​​

Endless love !

Jesus told the truth about sin.
He said, “Out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, and adulteries, and all other sins that we commit.” Matthew 15:19.
War comes from the human heart. Family tensions and problems come from the human heart. Rebellion comes from the human heart.
He also told the truth about love.
God loves you-- with a love that you don’t know anything about,- because there is no human love comparable to divine love.
God’s love sent His Son to the cross to die and shed his blood for you. He would have died had you been the only person in the whole world.
That’s exactly what our Lord Jesus Christ did.
God raised Him from the dead.And He’s alive!
"Dear Lord, thank You for Your endless love that is longer, wider, higher and deeper than I can comprehend. Please forgive me of my sin and let Your love wash over me so that I may be free from shame, guilt and condemnation. Make me fully alive in You! In Jesus’ Name. Amen."​​

Abiding love!

In John 5-we read about Jesus as He winds His way through the narrow streets of Jerusalem.
When He reaches the sheep gate by the pool of Bethesda-He observes the great multitudes plagued with various infirmities, - waiting to be moved into the water.
Suddenly He notices a poor man who seems more needy than all the rest, and tenderly He asks Do you want to be made well? v. 6.
The helpless paralytic looks up and answers-Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up.â v. 7.
Think of it or 38 long!
Weary, doleful years this bundle of pain had been buffeted by the surging human tide of Jerusalem, and after all these years he still had to say to Jesus:âSir, I have no man.
He was absolutely friendless.
Are you lonely?
You can have a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Jesus Christ can make life joyful, satisfying and glorious to you.
"Dear Lord, in so many ways, I have tried to hide my deepest sorrows and struggles from You and others. But You see and know it all. I give them to You now. Please forgive me and usher me into Your Lordship, Your friendship and the abiding love relationship that You desire for my life. I surrender. In Jesus Name. Amen

Struggling with shame?

"Jesus said to her, everyone who drinks from this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life. The woman said to him, sir give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty or have to come here to draw water." John 4: 13.
It was a quick rest stop.
Sitting by the well-Jesus waits as His disciples run into town to find lunch.
That's when she arrives. A woman from the nearby town come to draw water.
At this time of day, in this heat, most avoid the well. But, for this woman, she prefers it this way.
Quiet. Alone.
No one to condemn and no one around to judge. She is well known around town but not in a good way. Her reputation and her story are full of shame.
Pretty soon we discover that this woman is thirsty-- but not just for water something more.
Deep down she feels empty, unsatisfied. We learn that she's been searching for satisfaction in others – in relationships.
Over and over again-- she's tried to find what she believes will satisfy her heart and soul but it's all turned up empty.
Her story is full of broken dreams and shattered hopes, baggage and pain.
To Jesus, this comes as no surprise. He knows her story and He lays it all out.
Five husbands and the man she now lives with is not her husband. Nothing is hidden from Jesus.
There are no secrets here. And what does she do when she realizes Jesus knows her story? Does she run or hide?
Just the opposite.
She's excited. She wants to know more. It's as if she's somehow been set free.
But, how can this be? How is it possible that revealing all of her baggage before Jesus could possibly lead to feeling satisfied and filled?
One word Grace. Instead of being judged or condemned, she is loved.
And that right there is the Gospel of Jesus Christ grace covering sin and love replacing shame.
Only when we experience the love and grace of Jesus Christ will our hearts and souls be truly satisfied.
No longer will we need to run and hide, because all that we'e done has been covered by all that Jesus did.
Finally, the deepest longings of our hearts can be filled.
If shame is the driving force of your life, you will never be satisfied.
If you're struggling with shame and unworthiness because of your story, stop running.
Come before Jesus with your story and see what happens when your shame meets His grace.
This is the satisfaction and joy our souls long for.
This is the good news of the Gospel!​​

But you sinned!

Perhaps you at one time knew-- the joy and peace of being born into God’s family.
You knew the sweet fellowship of God’s people. You knew the complete happiness and satisfaction of Christ’s presence with you.
But you sinned!
You went out from the presence of Christ, and you have found that it is night.
You have neither the fellowship of Christians nor the fellowship of sinners, and certainly you no longer have the fellowship of Christ.

Perhaps there is no loneliness quite so bitter as the loneliness of a backslidden Christian.

Do you need to be restored?

Yet there is forgiveness for you.
As you confess and forsake your sins, your fellowship with Christ will be restored.
we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.1 John

Afraid of the dark?

"For You light my lamp; the Lord my God illumines my darkness." Psalm 18:28.
Why are children afraid of the dark?

Maybe it’s a fear of-- being left alone, - a feeling of separation, - their vivid imagination, or - shadows in the dark.
The fact is, children fear the dark for many of the same reasons adults do.
It seems many fears intensify in the night-- especially sleepless nights.
But I have good news: God is with us wherever we go.
Listen to a portion of Psalm 139:
“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the Heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.”
Like a loving Father-God offers us a hand to hold in life’s darkest hours.
He’ll carry us through the darkness-- and lead us where we need to go.​​

Gospel from India
What about it?

"...the water I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life." John 4:14.
If you’ve ever travelled through the desert-- you’ll notice that it’s mile after mile of dry and barren landscape.
Then suddenly, there’s a spot of green, some trees, bushes, and flowering plants. It always means there’s some kind of water source nearby.
With water, the desert blossoms and comes to life.
The same is true in our lives.
Without God-- we tend to dry up when life gets hard.
It saps us of all our energy, creativity and drive. We eventually feel beaten down, worn out, and dried up.
But Jesus says, “I am living water; anyone who accepts me will never be thirsty again.”
He wasn’t talking about physical thirst. He was talking about satisfying our spiritual thirst so we can blossom and come to life.
What about it? Do you sometimes feel like a dry, dusty shrub in a desert of emptiness?
Come to Christ and enjoy a cool drink of water whenever you need it. ​​

Gospel from India"
Charting the course

"To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1.

As one year comes to an end and another one begins-
- it is a great time to evaluate how we are doing and where we are going.

We want to make sure that we are living our lives the way they ought to be lived-
- because for some of us, this may be the last year.

Reflecting on the passing of human life, ethicist Michael Josephson wrote:
"Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours, or days... So what will matter?
How will the value of your days be measured?
Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident.
It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice."

The Bible says:
"To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die." Ecclesiastes 3:1–2.
It also reminds us that our times are in God's hands. Psalm 31:15.
Regarding the length of our lives, Job said to God, "His days are determined, the number of his months is with You; You have appointed his limits, so that he cannot pass." Job 14:5.

God determines how long we will live—not us.

We may be able to improve the quality of our lives through diet and exercise.
But the quantity of our lives—that is up to God.

So we want to make sure that we are living our lives well.

The measure of a life is-
- not its duration,
- but its donation."

You determine the evening of your life by the morning of it.

So start thinking about it.
Start charting the course the rest of your life will take. ​​

"Gospel from India"
Share the good news

"Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests."Luke 2:14.
Many cultures have traditions to celebrate the arrival of a baby.

Some display a wooden cut-out stork on their front lawn.

Others send out engraved announcements featuring the photo, weight, and other details of the new arrival.

Now people send smses and WhatsApp messages.

Baby Jesus had his birth announced by a great company of angels.Luke.2:13.

The appearance of the heavenly beings comes directly following the angel’s announcement.
We are told that “a great company of the heavenly host” was praising God.

This supernatural birth brought honour and glory to God.

Notice that verse 14, which states, “on whom his favour rests,” foreshadows the words of God the Father at Jesus’ baptism in Luke3:22.

When Jesus was baptized, the heavens opened for the Holy Spirit and the voice of God.
In that moment, the Father said: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

The Trinity was expressed in that moment, bearing witness to the favor on Jesus.

When the angels disappeared from their heavenly choir, the shepherds had no doubt about what to do next.

They immediately turned to one another, not to rationalize away the appearance-- but to follow the angel’s command to go to Bethlehem.

They wanted to see for themselves what the heavenly host had declared to be true. They went to Bethlehem in a hurry and found Mary and Joseph and the baby Jesus.V.16.

The shepherds did not come bearing gifts.
Instead, they revealed to the young couple the news of the divine announcement, no doubt again confirming the reality of the baby’s identity.

They did not keep this wonderful news to themselves-- but “spread the word” about the birth of the Saviour.Vs.17,20.

The Christmas story is about good news-- news so exciting that it was announced by angels and shared by shepherds.

Pray today that God will use this holiday season to allow you the opportunity to share the good news of Jesus Christ.

The miraculous nature of His birth and life are too wonderful to keep to yourself.

"Gospel from India"
Christ Jesus!

I am always amazed at how God uses simple things to confuse human understanding.1 Corinthians 1:27.

He chose David to be king when he was just a scrawny kid.He empowered Samson to kill one-thousand men by himself.And He used one of Christianities worst persecutors to become its most outspoken evangelist.
When Jesus was born the Father sent angels that told shepherds, who were out in a field, what had happened.

Shepherds “had a bad reputation and were considered unreliable and were not allowed to give testimony in the law courts.

So not only does the Creator of the universe surprise men by coming to earth at all but He comes as a little baby, in a small poor town and then he tells the stinky guys with a bad reputation to tell everyone that God has come to earth!

Let’s read what the angels say to the shepherds in Luke 2:14, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.”

There are many things we can learn from this but we’re going to focus on the “glory” and the “peace.”

The word “glory” here in the Greek is doxa meaning “honour, excellence, heavy and preeminence.”
This is where we get the word “doxology” from.

It is the same as the Hebrew word kabod meaning “weighty” or “heaviness.”
So Doxology is defined as praising and honouring God-- because He is more important than anything else.

You’ve probably heard the phrase “on earth peace, goodwill toward men” many times. And you’ve probably understood it in the same way I have:
- the angels were announcing that there would be peace on earth.

But historically we don’t see a stop to wars at this time-- in fact we see fights and battles increase.

Along with Roman oppression we also see evidence of suffering in Matthew 2:16-18 caused by Jesus birth:
- when Herod killed the newborn two year old boys.

But this was one of Satan’s attempts to kill Jesus, the Saviour.
So we can see that our understanding of peace from this is wrong.

There will never be peace on earth until Jesus’ second coming.

But Jesus’ birth as humanity’s Saviour meant that men who accepted God’s goodwill would have eternal peace.
We see this in Romans 5:1 which says “having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

But there is also a “peace that passes all human understanding” while we’re on this earth.Philippians 4:7.
The only true response this Christmas season is to give glory to God!
His gift is more weighty than we can imagine; it is both a solemn thing and at the same time it causes us to burst into doxology! John3:16.
Philippians 4:19 puts all of these thoughts together:
“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Our greatest need is salvation for our sin and a close second is the ability to trust God in His plan for our lives so we can rest in peace...not in death but in life.

But who causes this to happen?
The answer is always “Christ Jesus!”​​

GOSPEL FROM ASIA
The Wise!

"Where is He who has been born King of the Jews?" Matthew 2:2.
There are all sorts of seekers today-- searching for truth and the answer to life.
Would you describe yourself as a seeker?
The original seekers were those wise men from the East.
They weren't Christian or Jewish, but they were searching for meaning.
God spoke to them through the heavens with the appearance of a new star. They stepped out on faith and believed that what they were seeing signified the birth of a new king.
Along the way, God spoke to them through scripture, prophesying the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem.
They stepped out on faith and went there seeking.
When they arrived, they found the answer to life in a little boy named Jesus. They believed that He was God, who had become a man, and our Saviour. They found what every seeker needs Jesus, the answer to life.
Today-- wise men still seek Him

Gospel from Asia
Where is your hope?

Let me start by saying-
I believe with all my heart that the Gospel is the greatest message of hope anyone could ever encounter.

To understand the hope of the Gospel-
- we must look beyond our current life and circumstance.

This requires viewing life through the lens of faith.
And Paul's statement of hope requires faith.

This is the question each of us must answer:
Where do you place your hope?

When the sufferings and groanings of the world appear too much, where do we find hope?

If our hope is in this life-
- we will find ourselves stuck in hopelessness and despair.

If our hope is in this life-
Christians should be pitied above all others because the foundation of our faith is built upon an eternal Saviour who is coming to make all things new- a hope bigger than this world.

But, if our hope is in the One who is eternal-
- if our hope is in the One who is coming to make all things new,
- we can confidently say in any circumstance:
What we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later.

Life's struggles invite us to discover where we place our hope.

What about you?
Where is your hope?

No matter how miserable present circumstances appear-
- you really can believe the best is yet to come.

Jesus Christ offers you this hope.
You just have to believe it.

Do you believe it?

​"In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south." Zechariah 14:4.

It always brings fans to their feet.

In golf, it’s a hole-in-one.
In basketball, it’s the slam-dunk.
In baseball, it’s the home run.
But in football, it’s the touchdown.

The objective is simple.
The football team with the most points wins, and usually that means the most touchdowns.

But the greatest and most exciting touchdown has yet to occur-
- and when it does, the players on the winning team will go wild with joy.

Those on the losing team will be devastated with defeat.

The Bible tells about it in the Old and New Testaments.
The Messiah will touch down on the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem when Jesus returns.

​​Do you believe it?

Will you be ready for the ultimate feat?
How you respond in faith to Christ determines-
- whether you are on the winning team or losing team – forever.

It is my hope that you’ll be able to celebrate the touchdown-
- not be devastated, when Jesus comes!
