Love Jesus Extravagantly!


Matthew 26

Jesus Anointed at Bethany

While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of Simon the Leper, a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.
When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”
10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 The poor you will always have with you,[a] but you will not always have me. 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. 13 Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.

 
What appeared as Beautiful in the eyes of Jesus appeared  as Waste to Jesus's Disciples. Are you very critical and judgmental in the way others worship Jesus? Does their worship appear as Waste to you? 

Stop critizing. May be its time to Break your Expensive Alabaster Jar and Love Jesus Extravagantly!!

 And Jesus said "what she has done will also be told, in memory of HER". Wherever God's love for people was told, Jesus promised that Her love for God would be told.

40: A Video of Jesus in the Wilderness


After 40 days of wilderness, Luke says "Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit". As we enter the lenten days, days of reflections and days of preparation, I pray that we may return in the Power of the Spirit.

Always!!



"Always"

My foes are many, they rise against me
But I will hold my ground
I will not fear the war, I will not fear the storm
My help is on the way, my help is on the way

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always
I will not fear, His promise is true
My God will come through always, always

Troubles surround me, chaos abounding
My soul will rest in You
I will not fear the war, I will not fear the storm
My help is on the way, my help is on the way

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always
I will not fear, His promise is true
My God will come through always, always

I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
I lift my eyes up, my help comes from the Lord
From You Lord, from You Lord

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always
I will not fear, His promise is true
My God will come through always, always

Oh, my God, He will not delay
My refuge and strength always, always

Holiness – A 1000 Times Word

Whenever I make a important point to my sons, I say. “Listen, I have told you 1000 times and I am saying it again now...”. Well, saying something 1000 times means its really important. The word “Holiness” appear 1066 times in the bible. It means it is very important for a Christ follower to be Holy. I have not heard a complete sermon dedicated to the topic of Holiness for quite sometime.
The bible we read is called a Holy Bible. The God we worship is a Holy God. But we seem least bothered to about Holiness. Its bothering me. Heb 12: 14 says “…Work at living a holy life ,for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.” (NLT) “…Pursue …. holiness, without which no one will see the Lord” (NKJV) “…pursue that consecration and holiness without which no one will [ever] see the Lord.” (Amp) We are called to “Work” at living a Holy life and “Pursue” Holiness as if it is our only dream. A Holy Life is a greatest evidence of Jesus on this earth. It is difficult to argue against a Holy Life. I think I will be focussing more on this word in the coming days and hope to pursue and work on Holiness.

Are you the Reason?


Your life is a instrument which brings praise to God's name or it can be a instrument which dishonors God before others!
Many times our life is the reason why God's name is blasphemed among others.

Gandhiji liked Jesus but didn't want to follow him because of the way christian behaved. God is mocked because we dont live a life that reflects him.

Romans 2: 24 says "The gentiles blaspheme the name of God because of You"..

Is that You!

Are you being a hindrance for others to come to Christ! Is your life a wrong example?

Lets pray that Christians will be bridges for others to come to Christ and not barriers.

Eating Like Jesus!

One of my friend told me, if only he knew the food that Jesus ate he would follow the same diet and be more fitter and well built. 



Well, i dont know much about what menu Jesus did follow. But i am very confident about one particular food that Jesus ate. Am so confident because Jesus himself spoke about this food that nourished him. 


Its found in John 4: 34", “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work

Do you eat the food that Jesus ate? The food that brought him nourishment was Doing the Will of the Father who sent him. 

My friends let's eat like Jesus, yeah, lets do the will of Our Heavenly Father and finish his work.
