Nothing can Separate us from God’s Love

Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? There was a man in Singapore who used to suffer from certain health problems before he became a Christian. His doctor told him that he had to be on medication for life. He also had a huge financial debt. But when he caught hold of the teaching that he is God’s beloved, he believed it totally. He also believed that nothing could be greater than God’s love for him.

Who do you say JESUS is?

Mark 8:29 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered and said to Him, “You are the Christ.” Do you know that how you see Jesus determines what you receive from Him? If you see Jesus as your healer, you will receive healing. If you see Jesus as your refuge and fortress, you will receive protection. The people of Nazareth, Jesus’ hometown, saw Jesus in the natural. They said of Him, “Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, …

You are Special

Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. People might have said to you, “Why are you so lucky?” or “You seem to be looking younger and younger,” or “There is so much bad news these days, yet you seem untroubled by them.” Now, the people of the world don’t have spiritual discernment. They can only go by your physical appearance, behavior and what happens to you. In other words, if they notice something different about you, it is because they see the evidence of God’s glory on your …

Satan cannot bring a charge against you

Romans 8:33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. The book of Job tells us that Satan came to God’s throne and complained about Job. (Job 1:6–12) God’s throne is the most holy place. So why did God allow Satan to come before Him? Satan could come before God because Adam had given up his place when he bowed his knee to Satan in the garden of Eden. (Genesis 3) So Satan had the right to take Adam’s place and come before God. But praise God, Jesus, the last Adam, has come! And the …

Rev. Dr. Ayub Chhinchani preached from 2 Corinthians 1:1-11. His theme was ‘Why God allows suffering!’. Many times we may have asked this question, ‘Why me Lord!’.

Sometimes, God allows suffering so we can equip others. 3) v.8-10 says afflictions empties us of all self-reliance. Let us not forget that Christian life is an inter-dependent life. 4) v.11 reveals the …
