Read: Romans 12:16b

Having commanded Christians to "Be of the same mind one toward another", here the apostle Paul further advises them how to maintain such a harmonious co-existence with fellow Christians. According to this apostolic advice, the Christian unity within the church is largely dependent on how each would think of himself in relationship to others...

Read: Psalm 19:7a

Here David speaks of the Scriptures as "The law of the Lord". The Hebrew word for "law" (torah) means "teaching", "instruction", "doctrine", "precept", etc. It is used here to denote the instructive nature of the Scriptures. Through the Scriptures, God instructs us about all things with regard to our faith and conduct. It is through the Scriptures that God's truth and wisdom are communicated to us in order to guide us according to His will...

Satan and his hosts of demons have been, according to previous verses of this chapter, trying to destroy Israel and Christ and all the believers on earth.

He will try to destroy and slaughter all of the believing folks...

Read: Psalm 20:5

David, having spoken about His people's prayer in the day of trouble for divine help and defence, now mentions the effect of their trust in God. Though troubles encompass God's people, when they seek God's favour and deliverance, they will experience the joy that come with God's deliverance. Confidence in the LORD will result in joy that exudes out of God's help and deliverance...

T

he Apostle Paul gave this instruction to the Roman Christians while he was discussing the tribulation of God’s people. He tells them how they should show their love towards the persecuted Christians.

Terrible persecution was unleashed by Emperor Nero and His people against Christians. Many were driven out of their homes, and thrown out of their occupation, leaving them destitute, needy and homeless

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Monday, 06 June 2016

Read: John 1:14a

The Word which was divine and eternal (v.1) "was made flesh". This is an amazing summation of Christianity's grandest doctrine that the Second Person of the Trinity, the Son of God, became a man to be their Redeemer. Jesus Christ was the Word, which was both with God and who was God, who revealed Himself to us as a man...


2 Thessalonians 3:13

Read: 2 Thessalonians 3:13

As much as this exhortation is a warning to Christians against becoming weary of well doing, it is also an encouragement to continue in their commitment to be charitable and helpful to others in need. Throughout the New Testament, Christians are urged to be well doing. Jesus exhorted His followers in Matthew 5:16, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Likewise in Titus 3:8, we are instructed by Paul...

J

esus Christ was introduced to his readers by John as the Word, who was eternal God (cf. vv.1, 2). Now in verse 3, John gives further clarity and emphasis to the fact that Jesus was eternal and He was God by declaring that He is the Creator of all things...

Read: Psalm 119:140

D

avid always had the highest regard for the Holy Scriptures. He always considered it as belonging to God; and hence he referred to it as "Thy word". In Psalm 119 alone, 35 times David used the phrase "Thy word" to refer to the Holy Scriptures.

We too must read the Scriptures, believing that we are listening to the words of our God. Through the Scriptures, God communicates with us. So, with great reverence and joy, we must attend to it. We must receive the truths it teaches as divine and glorious...


Romans 13:8

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Thursday, 02 June 2016

Read: Romans 13:8

As Paul begins to exhort brethren concerning the debt of love that Christians owe one another, He said, "Owe no man anything." So can we borrow money? The Bible allows lending and borrowing in times of real need (Deut. 15:7-8; Ps. 37:26; Ex. 22:25). But it discourages us from being in debt, for a man's debt would make him servile before the lender (cf. Deut. 15:6; 28:12,44; Prov. 22:7). The Bible also warns against taking responsibility for the debts of others...
