‘What kills the vision?’ by Rev. Dr. Ayub Chhinchani, (31st March, 2019)

Rev. Dr. Ayub Chhinchani preached on the theme ‘What kills the vision?’ from Proverbs 29:18. As a believer in Christ, we should have a vision from the Lord.

Today, let us see 5 facts that kills the vision for an individual and for a church: 1) Tradition kills the vision: People think as God is unchanging, let us remain like that and they don’t adhere …

Good Good Father

Luke 15:31 “And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours. Faith is believing that we have a good God, and that He protects and provides for those who trust in Him. Remember the parable of the prodigal son (see Luke 15:11–32)? Jesus shared it to illustrate how good our heavenly Father is. The wayward son had squandered his father’s inheritance before he decided to go home to ask his father to make him a hired servant. But before he could reach home, his father saw him from afar, ran toward …

‘Surrender’ by Rev. Songram Keshari Singh (24th March, 2019)

Rev. Songram Keshari Singh preached on the theme ‘Surrender/Total Dedication’. The Scripture portion was taken from Romans 12:1-2. There are 3 things we need to consider deeply when we Surrender our life to Christ. Jesus demands our everything. We cannot say we are following Him, when we have surrendered only partially.

It should be only His will in our lives. That is true Christian life when we …

‘What the Cross of Christ means to the world?’ by Rev. Dr. Ayub Chhinchani (24th March, 2019)

Rev. Dr. Ayub Chhinchani preached on the theme ‘What the Cross of Christ means to the world?’ The Scripture portion was taken from 1 Corinthians 1:18-25. There are 3 important things the Cross of Christ truly means to the world: 1) The world is offended by the Cross. 2) The world is judged by the Cross. 3) The world is saved by the Cross. That’s why Paul says so aptly to take pride only in the Cross of Christ. When we meditate on the Cross with true reverence, we will understand the mystery of the Cross. Let us look to the …

In JESUS, you are Complete

Colossians 2:10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas, or someone who is whole and complete in Christ? There are believers who see themselves as incomplete. This is because they are conscious of their lack and imperfections. They say, “There are so many things imperfect about me! How can I be complete if there are so many things I am lacking in?” They see their weaknesses, condemn themselves and feel inferior …

‘Importance of Service & Worship’ by Rev. Pradeep Mohapatra, (17th March, 2019)

Rev. Pradeep Mohapatra preached on the theme ‘The importance of Service and Worship in Church’. This passage portrays 2 important qualities every believer and church should possess to grow spiritually. Martha was focussed on Service and Mary was focussed on Worship. Today’s church desperately needs these 2 qualities to grow spiritually. Unless we have the heart of Service and Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth; we cannot satisfy Him truly. If today your life is in a mess; if your life is in bondage; then come to Christ. Let us Serve and Worship Christ in the beauty of His …

‘Come’ by Mr. G.S.P. Dhas, (17th March, 2019)

Mr. G.S.P. Dhas preached on the theme ‘Come’ from Isaiah 55:1-3. This passage contains an Open Invitation and a Great offer. The one who is inviting is God Himself. This is an universal invitation to all who are thirsty. Sadly, today people go after power and natural things of this world; but that would never satisfy the soul. Only the Spiritual things can give us peace; God is calling us to Himself. ‘Come’, not for what you must do; but for what you must receive! In conclusion; you must admit your thirst/need for satisfaction; you must admit your poverty/inability to …

Perfect Love drives our Fear

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear… Experts tell us that babies have two natural fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. A study on fear was conducted on 500 adults of varying ages, backgrounds and lifestyles. The results showed that they shared some 7,000 different fears. This means that they must have learnt 6,998 fears since they were born. That is a lot of fears! Actually, our bodies are designed for faith. Fear was foreign to man until Adam sinned against God. For the first time, Adam …
