One must ask himself, whether, he lives to eat or eats to live? Many in the world are so much worried about Roti, Kapda aur Makan means, what to eat, what to wear and where to live. My dear brothers and sisters, listen, what Jesus says “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than the clothing?” (Mt. 6:25). We all are over concerned about our needs of the body. But Jesus tells us “It is the spirit which gives life, the flesh is useless. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life” (Jn. 6:63)

Yes! My dear brothers and sisters, we should strive for the food for the soul. Many in the world have enough to eat, but they are not happy. Many eat a lot but they are not healthy. Many wear very expensive clothes but they look miserable, they don’t have joy on their face. Many live in the palaces but they don’t get good sleep. Many have got so many luxuries yet they are not satisfied. We read in the Gospel of Luke the parable of the rich fool who said “I will say to my soul, soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry. But God said to him; you fool! This very night your life is being demanded of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?” (Luke. 12:19-20).

So, brothers and sisters, let us not look for comforts but let us look for the comforter. Don’t look for gifts, instead look for the giver; Remember, what Jesus said “Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Mt. 4:4). Let us live like the children of light and hence lay aside the desires of the body. St. Paul appeals to us saying “Let us live honorably as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy, instead put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh; to gratify its desires” (Rom. 13:13-14). Peace be with you. Amen.

TESTIMONIALS

MERCIFUL GOD

I came to your temple seeking your help,
With heart full of hurts and with bitterness overwhelmed,
With no strength in my bones, I reached at your gate,
You are a merciful God, who never shuns the lame.

With riches of your glory and love, you saved me from death,
Hands of scars lifted my life from the hell,
Cursed life was made new with your blessings and Holy Spirit,
In Jesus alone, I find my hope for living.

He will never turn his back from the one who seek him
Jesus is the morning star of those whose hope have become dim,
Take courage, take one step towards him in his name,
Look he will come running towards you, with love and grace

Bless the Lord, you who sinners made saint,
Proclaim his deeds all the days that you live,
For his love, what in return can we give,
Our life is the only best thing that we can give back to him.

OUR WORDS

The life which we have received with great toil,
We may lose it with our words spoken, within no time,
Let us guard our lips and recall his holy name in our mind.
And this hour of temptation will pass like cloud in the sky.

The relationship with God and our neighbor is so precious,
But we do not know,we can lose them only because of our words,
Let us mind our tongue and we will stand firm,
With balanced words, let us show them honour and love.

Silence is the strongest weapon in this world,
But this world perceives it as weak and low,
But Almighty God is the one who loves peace and love,
Let us remain silent and he will fight our war.

Let our mouth only speak about Jesus,
Let our mind always count his blessings.
Let our heart always feel his love and mercy,
All our life let us adore the one who Yahweh the Almighty.
