Faithfulness of a Father 

​This brought tears down my eyes this morning…its a good read.
God is Faithful! – The Best Piece I’ve Read This Year!
In the country of Armenia, in 1988, Samuel and Danielle sent their young son, Armand, off to school. Samuel squatted before his son and looked him in the eye. “Have a good day at school, and remember, no matter what, I’ll always be there for you.” They hugged and the boy ran off to school.
Hours later, a powerful earthquake rocked the area. In the midst of the pandemonium, Samuel and Danielle tried to discover what happened to their son but they couldn’t get any information. The radio announced that there were thousands of casualties.  Samuel then grabbed his coat and headed for the schoolyard. When he reached the area, what he saw brought tears to his eyes. Armand’s school was a pile of debris. Other parents were standing around crying.
Samuel found the place where Armand’s classroom used to be and began pulling a broken beam off the pile of rubble.  He then grabbed a rock and put it to the side, and then grabbed another one.
One of the parents looking on asked, “What are you doing?”   “Digging for my son,” Samuel answered. The man then said, “You’re just going to make things worse! The building is unstable,” and tried to pull Samuel away from his work.
Samuel just kept working. As time wore on, one by one, the other parents left. Then a worker tried to pull Samuel away from the rubble.  Samuel looked at him and said, “Won’t you help me?”   The worker left and Samuel kept digging.
All through the night and into the next day, Samuel continued digging.  Parents placed flowers and pictures of their children on the ruins.  But, Samuel just kept working.  He picked up a beam and pushed it out of the way when he heard a faint cry. “Help! Help!”  Samuel listened but didn’t hear anything again.  Then he heard a muffled voice, “Papa?”
Samuel began to dig furiously.  Finally he could see his son.  “Come on out, son!” he said with relief.

“No,” Armand said.  “Let the other kids come out first because I know you’ll get me.”  Child after child emerged until, finally, little Armand appeared.  Samuel took him in his arms and Armand said, “I told the other kids not to worry because you told me that you’d always be there for me!”
Fourteen children were saved that day because one father was faithful.
How much more faithful is our heavenly Father!  Whether trapped by fallen debris or ensnared by life’s hardships and struggles, we are never cut off from God’s faithfulness.  He is true to His character.  He is reliable and trustworthy and can always be counted on.
Deuteronomy 7:9 “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations…”
1 Corinthians 1:9 – God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful. 
Psalm 37:28, “For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. They will be protected forever” Keep trusting God to the end. Don’t break by reading alone, you might be encouraging someone.👍👍👍

The Importance of Jesus Baptism 

Had Jesus any need of baptism as He was innocent and sinless! Let’s see why Jesus was baptised.

1. In baptism Jesus was identifying Himself with the sinners, to save the mankind through His death. He had to represent the whole humanity.

2. The baptism of Jesus was a shadow of His death and resurrection which was to follow.

3. Jesus became obedient even to the death of the cross for the sake of human salvation. Jesus, through baptism, was demonstrating His implicit obedience Hebrews 10:9. That’s why the Heavenly Father spoke from Heaven: “He is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased”.

4. Jesus set an example for us to follow. Jesus identified Himself with humanity in baptism whereas we come into union with His death and resurrection through baptism Romans 6:4,5. If Jesus showed His obedience to God through baptism, we must also demonstrate our obedience to God through baptism. But we have to bear one thing in mind that Jesus’ baptism is different from ours.

Humanly speaking, the Bible was written by approximately 40 men of diverse backgrounds over the course of 1500 years. Isaiah was a prophet, Ezra was a priest, Matthew was a tax-collector, John was a fisherman, Paulwas a tentmaker, Moses was a shepherd, Luke was a physician. Despite being penned by different authors over 15 centuries, the Bible does not contradict itself and does not contain any errors. The authors all present different perspectives, but they all proclaim the same one true God, and the same one way of salvation—Jesus Christ (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). Few of the books of the Bible specifically name their author.

Children’s Weapon in the Sinful World

Our children are the blessings from God who came into our life and brought joy and happiness. We love our children and we try to give the best to them. Also we have great dreams for our children and we want them to have a bright future.

But the question is, how many of us pray for our children? Do we teach them to pray alone with God every morning they wake up and see the bright sun and before they go to their beds? Do we spend time to read them and teach from the Bible? 

In the wretched and wicked world that we live in, today’s generation need a weapon each and every second of life and that weapon is the WORD OF GOD. Nothing is stronger or powerful than this weapon. I ask each and every parent to nurture and bringup their child in way that please God and to live according to BIBLE.

OR ELSE

YOUR CHILD IS DOOMED FOREVER!

River of God

Last week a fisherman came near our house to sell fish. He removed a live fish and the fish hit the ground, it was on the sand yet alive. He also had other fishes which he kept inside the water, they were all swimming alive. 

A small thought came into my mind. When we leave worldly things and all ties on this earth, if we are in the River of God enjoying our spiritual life with God we will have LIFE that no one can take away from us. Instead if we choose the world we will be like the fish who jumped on worldly filth and died on sand. May God bless u with this thought!
