Read: Romans 8:37

Christians are conquerors. In fact, our verse declares that Christians are “more than conquerors”. This is truly a comforting message to Christians, for they live in a hostile world. Though they would face extreme hostilities, their faith shall not be quenched because the Word of God assures them that they shall be “more than conquerors”!

Paul has written in the previous verses about the steadfastness of God’s love for believers in the face of hostility: “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword...

Read: Jeremiah 31:3b

The LORD has been revealing, through His prophet, the future restoration of Israel, which faced destruction and dispersion for provoking God with their wickedness. Israel, as a nation, wandered away from their God and set up altars to the heathen gods. That nation lived like an unashamed adulterous wife, provoking the LORD to punish them.

Notwithstanding their unfaithfulness, the LORD declares His unchanging love for the nation of Israel, His chosen people. His love for His people is from everlasting to everlasting, not confined to time or nullified by eternity. Here the LORD once again reiterated His everlasting love...

Read: Colossians 1:12

Gratitude is due to God, our Father in heaven. Heartfelt, genuine thankfulness should grow out of our daily experiences of God’s goodness. God’s children should never forget what God has done for them as their loving and most benevolent Father. God, who has given us His only begotten Son to be our Sin-bearer and Saviour, will also freely give us all things...

Read: Psalm 21:13

David spoke these words at the end of a psalm in which he delineated the struggles he had against the enemies of the LORD. Earlier, he spoke of men who acted wickedly against God. He said, “For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform” (v. 11). He was thankful that the wicked were not allowed to carry out all their schemes fully. He also expressed his expectation that the LORD would defeat the enemies and cause them to retreat...


Psalm 30:4

Read: Psalm 30:4

The Word of God exhorts us to be singing saints! God’s people must sing to give thanks to the LORD. Though we can give thanks to God without singing, such as by prayer, we are here encouraged to sing to give thanks to Him. Psalm 147:7 likewise tells us to “Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God”. Our singing should never be without thanksgiving to God...


Hebrews 10:12

Read: Hebrews 10:12

The writer of Hebrews has been discussing Christ’s atoning death in the light of the Old Testament sacrifices. In our verse, Christ is contrasted with the ministry of the Old Testament priests whom he mentioned in the previous verse. They offered sacrifices daily. They stood all the time while they ministered. They repeated their sacrifices in the morning and in the evening. Yet those sacrifices could not take away the sins of the people. In that verse, it was said concerning their ministry that “every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins...


Romans 14:9

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Saturday, 21 April 2018

Read: Romans 14:9

There is, of course, a sense in which Jesus has always been Lord, for He is the Creator, Governor and Provider of all things. By virtue of His divine nature, He is indeed Lord of all. But Paul is not talking about that. He is referring to His Lordship in view of the atoning work that He accomplished through His death and resurrection. Some theologians correctly call it “the lordship of redemptive relationship”. In a very special sense, Christ is Lord of those to whom He brought salvation through His death and resurrection...


Luke 24:6

Read: Luke 24:6

This was the angelic declaration on the day of Christ’s resurrection. Thus they announced the grand truth of Christ’s resurrection to the women who went to His tomb on the third day of His burial.

The angels indisputably announced, “He is not here, He is risen!” Though He is not there, He assuredly was once there in the tomb, for He was crucified, dead, and buried. These women had been there at His tomb when He was buried...


Ephesians 1:7

Read: Ephesians 1:7

Redemption! What a glorious word! It belongs to everyone who has trusted the Lord Jesus Christ. Only through Christ can one inherit redemption. The Greek word for “redemption” appears about ten times in the New Testament. It depicts the freedom of a prisoner or a slave through the payment of money. The money paid to set the captive free is known as the ransom. This is the idea that Paul had in mind when he wrote, “In whom we have redemption through his blood...


Romans 5:8

Read: Romans 5:8

Oh, how amazing is God’s love towards us sinners! His love towards us was manifested through the death of Christ “while we were yet sinners”. No merit of ours has moved Him to love us. He was not reciprocating our love for Him when He manifested His love through Christ’s death. All about us was displeasing to Him when He acted to express His love towards us through the death of Christ. He loved us of His own accord...
