God’s Super abounding Grace is for you

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. If you were in the same synagogue as the man with the withered hand (see Luke 6:6–11), how would you see him and what do you think you would say to him? Jesus was preaching in that synagogue when He saw the man with the withered hand. But He also saw superabounding grace around that hand for healing and wholeness. He sees differently from us. He sees the invisible. He sees that …

You are Complete in Christ

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 …

You have the Victory in Jesus name

Romans 8:37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. If God’s Word says that we are more than conquerors through Christ, then we are. We are not going to become, we already are. We may be experiencing some failures or setbacks in life right now, but only good will come out of our situations because God says that “in all these things we are more than conquerors.” We have the victory! You see, God has placed us in Christ, whom He has exalted to the highest place in the universe. We are not trying …

‘Hindrances to God’s people’ by Rev. Sunil Kar (12th January, 2020)

Rev. Sunil Kar preached on the theme ‘Hindrances to God’s people towards His plan and purpose’ from 3 portions in the book of Exodus. They are Exodus 8:28, 10, 11,24 and 12:31.

We need to trust God in every situation to work and fulfill His mission.

Let me share it briefly with you all. I had a divorce a few years back after 7 years of marriage. Even though my husband was into another relationship, I was wronged for everything and we had to part ways. I was finding it difficult …

Live the ‘Abundant Life’

Romans 5:17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ… When God created man, He did not intend for man to grow old, become weak and powerless, suffer diseases and die—first the physical death, then the second or eternal death. God never meant for man to go through all these and for death to reign. But because of one man’s offense—that man being Adam—death reigns. The ultimate death is the second or eternal …
