God Is Still Willing

God is still willing

In Matthew 8, a man with leprosy comes to Jesus and worships Him. He does this because he knows God can do anything. In fact, he’d have probably heard about all the miracles Jesus was doing for others, but internally he had the same question you and I still have today.

“I know GOD can do anything for OTHERS but is HE really WILLING to help ME?”

Does God really care about MY LIFE?
Which is it? Does God want to LOVE me or SLUG me?

You know, this story of the man with leprosy is in the Bible only because God wanted to reveal His character to us once and for all. He didn’t want us to be in the dark when it came to His will. And what’s more, Jesus didn’t want us to question whether or not He was truly willing to help us!

Jesus Heals a Man With Leprosy

In the story, the leper comes to Jesus, vulnerable and with humility, to seek healing, but he still questioned whether or not God WANTED to heal him. The leper knows all too well how much he was suffering, so he puts himself out there, probably embarrassing himself. He kneels publicly before Jesus.

So…here we finally find out if Jesus will turn the leper away and reject his desire, or whether He would welcome Him with open arms and heal him! Almost afraid to breathe, the leprous man waits on his knees before Jesus and all the people gathered around Him.

What happens next is no surprise. The Bible says Jesus REACHED OUT and TOUCHED THE LEPER (something that was forbidden by society) and He lovingly tells this man the words many of us need to hear today.

“I AM WILLING, BE HEALED.”

And at that moment, the leprosy instantly disappeared.

Today, you might be wondering if Jesus really cares about your struggles and what you are going through. I have got good news: He does.

Jesus is never changing, which means that He is always the same: yesterday, today and forever. Today Jesus desires to help and love you through whatever you are going through. Today, He still is willing!

Jesus reached out His hand and touched the man. “I am willing” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleaned of his leprosy. (Matthew 8:3)

As In The Mirror

As In The Mirror

“You light a smile to shine on my face, You inspire a song with Your warm embrace”

Everyone on this earth has experience of seeing their beautiful self on a mirror. We check our get-up, mono act, imitate, mimic and what not? Right from before Christ, mirrors are ancient devices for enhancing beauty. As we browse the Bible, we get a clear vision of what it means to stand in front of a mirror.

Seeing Ourselves In The Mirror, In The Physical Realm

“For if anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror.” [James 1:23] When we stand in front of the mirror, we see ourselves. The moment we go from there we lose that image of us. It just vanishes. Thus when we hear God’s Word, we realise the rich essence of it and relish the nourishment it gives us. The moment we close the Bible, everything goes out of sight, out of mind and we fall back into our mundane routine; mere hearers of the Word of God ending up in vanity!

Seeing Ourselves In The Mirror, In The Spiritual Realm

“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.” [2 Corinthians 3:18] When we allow the Word to work in us, transform our life situations, repent, forgive, exercise charity, spread love and hope always, this brings tremendous power, joy and growth in spirituality, thereby when we see our face in the mirror in the spiritual realm we see Christ in us. Amen. Beholding the Glory of God by the power of the true living, moving and powerful HOLY SPIRIT; as Thomas Kempis send a final call to all of us to become Imitations of Christ.

Becoming The Image Of God

“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.” [1 Corinthians 13:12] When we build this relationship with God we get direct access with Him as He spoke to so many, so many saints who had direct rendezvous with God in their daily lives. We begin to understand all the hidden mysteries of our creation, purpose and mission.

We become living saints, moving around, rendering helping hand to the needy in constant prayer and communication with God. Remember every saint that the church canonized was an ordinary person like you and me. They worked for sainthood by taking the Word of God seriously and surrendered their lives to the will of God.

“GOD’S WILL, NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS, NOTHING ELSE” goes the saying. In this year of Mercy, let us all aspire to see the visible face of the invisible father as Jesus spoke to the Samaritan woman, understand God in fullness, completeness, wholesome, perfection which will help us to have a glorious finish, as we enter the gates of heavenly abode. Amen!

From My God to My Lord

From My God to My Lord

The word GOD means perfect, omnipotent, divine, immortal etc. When we consider our God as God, we stand in awe of his might and potential. We feel that we are like dust before him as St.Paul said. From our childhood we develop a sense of fear, reverence and begin to follow a ritualistic routine so as to abide and align our life in a way pleasing to God and society.

The word LORD

The word LORD Kyrios[Greek], Dominus [Latin], Dynamus [dynamite], Adonai [Hebrew] means ruler, master with power and authority. In the Bible if we watch carefully the word lord refers to husband, Lord to king and LORD (all caps) to Yahweh. He is full of power and authority.

From My God to My Lord

As long as God is God in our life, our relationship with Him is a passive one and His potential is not fully effective in our life. If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.[Romans 10:9] The moment we accept JESUS as our LORD, our life transforms completely. We ourselves allow Him to use His power to lead our lives. We must not have any inhibitions.

This is the time His will becomes our will. God’s will, nothing more, nothing less, nothing else. He is our living companion, taking control of every situation, every moment, every day and our entire life, with power and authority, depending upon the degree of trust we have in Him and how far we have surrendered our lives to Him. He will lead us to the pinnacle of success and summit of Glory.

Life – A chariot with many horses

Our life is like a chariot with many horses. If each go in its own direction, we just cannot move one bit forward. Now is the time to give the reins to our Lord and Master. Give him the reins, see him reign, let abundance of Grace and Mercy rain on us. Let Lord Jesus Christ be a dynamic God so kinetic in our lives.

God is not an abstract entity. He is an absolute reality. Every creation of the creator should find God, experience Him and feel His presence, by the time our life cease to exist. All prayers and formations are just starter packs for this greater purpose.

God Experience

On one fine day, which is sure and certain in everyone’s life, we will have that ‘GOD EXPERIENCE’. Then we come to know the purpose of our existence, our mission and target, bringing focus to our future. The Joy of this moment is just awesome. From that moment, we are led by that Kindly Light and a tender whisper guiding amidst encircling gloom. We must sustain this light and voice all our lives, never let it fade, or die out.

St.Padre Pio said “Let us first look at ourselves. The infinite distance between the azure and the abyss generates humility.” God is infinite in all dimensions. This God so infinite seeks your finite heart to rest, live and make you one with him. He knows you before your birth and is going to be with you after your death. Only during this earthly life we fail to seek him. St. Augustine says “My heart is restless until I find my Rest in Thee”.

Let seeking and being with God be our prime aim in our life. Let every prayer be addressed to Abba father, through Our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God forever and ever. Amen.
