Merry Christmas 2016

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2017. Don`t regret no more for what you could not do in 2016 but be hopeful for 2017. God will be your strength. There are many things that you cannot do in your own strength but He will enable you. "Not by your might, nor by your strength by His Spirit says the Lord."

Religion to Relationship 2

In the previous post we studied about the coming of Jesus to the Earth to extend the sonship to us. We can become children of God by Believing and receiving Jesus Christ.
Salvation is another term for the restoration of our lost relationship with God.

1 John 1:6-7 "If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: but if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanseth us from all sin."

If we say we are in His Fellowship, if we say we have the right relationship with God and walk in Darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 

How can you identify your status? How can you find out if you are in light or in darkness?

It is important because a major portion of people who think they are children of God are living in deception.
Even Jesus said  in Matt 7:22 "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy by thy name, and by thy name cast out demons, and by thy name do many mighty works?" (ASV)

A person who is not born again is Self centered, however, a person who is born again is Christ Centered.
You can examine yourself. If you are born again, if you have a good relationship with God, you cannot live a self centered life. Love of God will compel  you to share it with others.  However, if you are living a self centered life, you are walking in darkness. If we think more, in a way, Self centeredness is the reason of all the crimes and problems. Selfishness can make person cross all the limits.

A person who is in His fellowship will be christ centered. Even if he has found christ, he would think about people who do not know Jesus. He would do everything he can to make Jesus know to them who are without Jesus. His thoughts and life will always be Christ Centered.

"For the earnest expectation of the creation waiteth for the revealing of the sons of God." Romans 8:19 (ASV)

If you are a child of God, you need to Spread His Light. You need to be a Lighthouse as the need is great.

Religion to Relationship 1

It is December already. As we get into the month of December it seems like Christmas everyday. And I enjoy it, even we all do. However, we should never forget the reason of the Season. Approximately 2016 years ago Jesus came to this earth. And the world celebrates his Birth during this season.

Why did Jesus come to Earth? Was it to give birth to Christianity? Was it to began a new religion.?

God never started any religion. In fact, Jesus did not come to began any religion. The Bible tells us in John 1:12 "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:"

Jesus came so that we may receive Him, Believe in Him and become Children of God. Yes, He came so that we may become Children of God. He did not come to Start a new religion.

You can become a Child of God by Believing and receiving Jesus. You cannot be a Child of God because you were born in a Christian, Hindu or Muslim Family. You cannot be a Child of God because you have an English name. But you can become a Child of God only by believing and receiving Jesus.

The first time "Christians" word was used is found in the book of Acts.
Ac 11:26 and when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that even for a whole year they were gathered together with the church, and taught much people, and that the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (ASV)
This name was given to the Faithful disciples. As the time has passed, this word has lost its meaning. Jesus never started any religion. But He came to give us this relationship. Jesus came to give us an opportunity to become Children of God. He actually, extended this relationship to all of us.

And it is very important to become a Child of God before we die or Jesus returns.

Salvation means restoration of the relationship with God. In other words, we can say that Salvation is becoming a Child of God.

Let this Christmas be a reason of Celebration for you. You can be a child of God just by believing in Jesus and receiving Him.
