We all are born in the world, live in the world and die in the world, while living here on earth, we live as though we will live here forever. But the truth is, this world is only an illusion, a maya and will disappear from our life, when our end draws near. And that is why the word of God reminds us saying “Do not love the world or the things in the world. The love of the Father is not in those who love the world; for all that is in the world – the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eyes, the pride in riches – comes not from the Father but from the world. And the world and its desire are passing away, but those who do the will of God live forever” (1 Jn 2:15-17)

Very true, dear friends everything here on earth will pass away one day from our lives. Hence do not desire this world or things in this world. The word of God very truly tells us, if we love this world we cannot love God. “Do you not know that friendship with the world is enemity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God” (James. 4:4). So, we have to choose between God and world. In the gospels we read “No one can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” (Mathew. 6:24)

Therefore, let not our struggle here on earth be, struggling to store up treasures for ourselves. Remember the words of Jesus “What does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, but lose or forfeit his soul” (Luke. 9:25). So let our concern be, to accumulate treasures in heaven. And that is what Jesus tells us “Do not store up for yourselves, treasures on earth, where moth and rust, consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves, treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust, consumers, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is there your heart will be also” (Mathew. 6:19-21). Remember what do you want, momentary bliss or eternal joy? Choice is yours. 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.
