“For all things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future all belong to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.” – 1 Cor 3:21-23. My dear brothers and sisters, it is God who created us and brought us to this world through our parents. “God said, Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness” – Gen 1:26. “Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.” – Gen 2:7
“Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.” – Gen. 2:7
Yes, my dear brothers and sisters, God has put life into each and every human being and has “created mankind in his image and according to his likeness” – Gen 1:26. There is a celebration when any child is born and every year that day is celebrated in rememberance of the life put in that person. But what is important is that does every human being really cherish that ‘life’ in Christ?
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.

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.
