Unity in Vision

Last weekend we had a fasting prayer in our church. It was a great time in the presence of God. We had a Servant of God Pr.Micheal George from Andhra Pradesh, India.Now God told three things mainly which I feel is good writing here.Unity in VisionPassion for SoulQuiettime with GodUnity in Vision is an important thing for anything. Its may be a company, family, minstry, church etc but its a very important thing. Most of the churches don’t grow and there is disputes because people don’t have a unified vision. Our vision should match with God’s plan and it should be in complete agreement with Word of God. I don’t think there is any vision which can be out of God word. So lets examine and see if we have a unified vision in whatever we do.The Second thing is passion for souls. If we don’t have this then I think we are spiritually sick because it is something which we should have if we are a born again person. Are we able to cry for lost people. Are we filled with grief when we think about…

Christian Maturity-Disagreement

God’s purpose for our life is that we should grow mature in Christ.Max Derree said “In the end it is important to remember that we cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.”“The more spiritually you grow, the more you realize just how much your thoughts are actually focused on yourself. Even the thoughts that formerly seemed good and acceptable all of the sudden look selfish. Only then do the words “look to Jesus” finally take on real meaning.

But if it is not dealt carefully then it can lead to problems. ØMany Disagreements ignored takes bitte…

Immigration Bill

The talk among the people in US these days is about the Immigration Bill. People whose green card is in process, who plan to apply, companies who bring people on H1B etc are all worried and waiting to see the outcome. Lot of things have been said and debated. People who are in US illegally are fighting to get themself legal and those who are legally here are finding it difficult. Only time will tell what will happen. People fear that rules may change and what will happen to their chances of settling down in US. Many feel some rules are unfair and others feel otherwise. The issue finally is about getting citizenship.Now all this makes me to think about a citizenship which is promised in Bible. Phil 3:20 says “But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ”. Rules for getting citizenship there never changes. Its same for last 2000yrs.
