Every human person, here on earth, desires power and honour richness, position, name and fame and in order to achieve that he or she strives day and night, and when one does not get what he or she wants, he lives in sorrow and sadness. My dear brothers and sisters, what this world offers to us does not stay with us forever. What power or position, we get from people is temporary and that is why we see everywhere fights and troubles in political, social, institutional placements. There is fight and injustice and destruction for the sake of power and recognitions. Hence, the word of God, tells us, do not desire this world and its glory, that will pass away. It will not remain forever. The rich will become poor, master will be a slave, ruler will be ruled, minister will have to be an ordinary citizen, so on and so forth. Hence seek glory and honour, power and authority from God, in order to serve him and honour him. We read, Jesus gave this power and authority in the Gospel. “All authority in Heaven and on Earth, God has given to me, go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Mt. 28: 28-29). The authority, what the disciples received from Jesus was permanent. The authority God gave to his prophets was permanent. We need today authority from God to overcome all evil. Jesus says “See I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of enemy, and nothing will hurt you” (Luke. 10:19)

So, brothers and sisters, we need to receive this authority from God, God gives it to us, through his son. When we love Jesus and believe in him, we receive this authority. Jesus said “The one who believes, and is baptized will be saved, and these signs will accompany, those who believe, by using my name, they will cast out demons, they will speak in new tongues, they will pick up snakes in their hands, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them, they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mk. 16:17-18). So, let us receive this authority and power from God, and we can work for God and for his glory forever. 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.
