Four Words!

Slow Jesus

We are busy people. We live in a age where people who do things faster are appreciated.  Jesus as he walked on this earth slowed down all the time as people came to him in need. He was so busy yet would slow down and stop as people interrupted him.  The one who created the light which travels at an enormous speed, always slowed down for people.  Jesus showed us what the speed of God is. We are called to go at the speed of Jesus to reach others around us. Slow down for people.

Paxadoxes - Part 1

6 And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness,7 maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.” - Exodus 34:6,7

"forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished;"
What could it actually mean? There are many paradoxes in bible which leave me confused and this one of it. What could God actually mean by this?
He might be saying I am a merciful, loving, forgiving God, but I am also as serious as I can be in the way I handle sin. 
I am not sure. I am just thinking out loud. There is so much i don't understand in the bible.
He forgives yet he doesn't forgive!

Misunderstood Jesus

Hello to everyone (if there still is anyone) who is aware of this blog after all this time! I apologize for leaving so suddenly.

Someone told me that it only takes one person to keep hope alive in others, and that is the greatest thing I could accomplish. So i want to affect that one person and keep their hopes alive.

When Jesus walked this earth, people often misunderstood his words. When he died on the cross, no one, not even his close disciples realized that he was dying for their sins. He died as the most misunderstood person.

Recently, i have noticed everyone seems to know Jesus. But some how Jesus remains that most misunderstood person.

We need people who would strive to understand Jesus. We need people whose only purpose in life would be stay with Jesus and listen to him and understand him.

As i read the gospels, i find that the words of Jesus shocking and confusing at times. His stories are hanging without end. His questions were his answers.

I think its time to stop preten…

I do not know this Jesus!

I do not know Him! How could peter ever utter those words about Jesus? Peter knew Jesus for more than 3 years. They were really close friends. Peter was in the inner circle, watching and following Jesus very closely. His life was interwoven with the life of Jesus, that it would be impossible to explain the life of peter without Jesus. Peter knew Jesus very well. Well, atleast he thought he knew Jesus very well.
One of the early meetings with Jesus happened when peter was mending his nets. Jesus used Peter’s boat as the pulpit. Peter thought Jesus was a great teacher. Immediately after the teaching was over, Jesus miracoulsy helped peter to fill his empty nets and boat with a enormous catch of fishes. It was when Peter realized that Jesus was more than a teacher who was searching for pulpits to preach. Jesus was searching for people. He understood that Jesus had the power to perform miracles.
From there on Peter had the privilege of closely observing the power of God through Jesus. Jesu…

Forgive Me

A beautiful prayer of confession. May God forgive us and give us a fresh start this New Year. Let us live forgiven and let us live like we are His!
