How can you be in the world of chaos? Can you be like Jesus? Can you be in Peace? Can you be in Love?

It was two years ago – we’ve been free of restriction—the world with no wild Covid-19 virus was at least freedom. We could go to Church, and We could go to our schools and workplaces. We could go to restaurants. Now, we almost forget about how and when was the last time we gather as a community! 

Let’s turn off those voices and see what and how can we be like in the chaotic world?

If Jesus was here now- what he would do? Was he able to move around the city by city and preach the gospel of the kingdom of God? 

How can be in this world of unbelief? Everyone looking for their benefit. A country is taking over and goes in a completely wrong direction. The distance is getting more and more between families. How can one be the agent of peace in the world of chaos? 

Being Jesus on earth:

The very step of every human is to be like Jesus. Being like Jesus means to obey what he commands. There is no religious mask over a like-Jesus person. There is no double-minded here and there. They are not perfect but trying to be like Jesus. They are quick confessers and know others win the race is essential, and in the meantime, they keep their race in the eyes of Jesus. They know nothing can satisfy their thirsty souls but Jesus himself. They are living water that flows on drylands on earth. Everyone enjoys their company. They give Love and no expectation to return. They are kind and intelligent – stay alert to destroy the scheme of the enemies. Do you want to be like Jesus on earth?

Jesus said: ” Remain in me as I remain in you.” [John 15:4 ]

Being in Peace with:

If you are in Jesus – then you are the source of peace. You are the agent of peace; everyone wants to know what is the secret of your heart. They watch you secretly and learn from you- the way you speak attracts people and gives the audience wisdom and peace. You are in the centre of God’s will; it seems you are in the right place with the right people at the right time. You are content with your soul. You don’t look for answers; you are the answer! Because Jesus himself is in you. Peace beyond human understanding is in and with you. The only things that come and go into your heart are Light, Love, and Peace. So, you are at peace with everyone everywhere and yourself! 

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.” [Colossians 3:15]

Being in Love with:

Love is not the four letters anymore. It is Love in the act. It is not a private love, but it is public – for everyone. It is for the family, friends, neighbour and nation and any race and tribe. Love does not know the colour! The only thing Love knows – it is softening and changing the hearts! If you are in Love with God – indeed in the right way through Jesus and peace is in you. Love keeps things in peace and changes destiny for the better. Love hold marriages stronger and turn a troubled teen into a loving child for the parents; Love does not know the borders. There is no limitation. 

” Love must be sincere.” [ Romans 12: 9 ]

What is your solution ? What quality can you offer to our broken world?

Go Deeper

I’ve never known that fire has a story to tell. A whole story of a city.

As Sydney has been impacted greatly with the bushfires , we all pray for a drop, a drop of heaven that can cool off us all easy. I am still dazing above..

I am typing these words down as we came from a bushfire storm. Some blaming the climate change , some others put their hands up praying continually as some others closed their eyes and they are in the grave right now because of this cause. Can we blame someone for this? isn’t Australia a dry land by nature?

My heart hurts when I see people walking away from God, Hiding behind the science. Smart people has no explanation about it! Given reasons without right justification. Hours and hours has been spent to debate – the end result : no outcome , farmers business brunt down. People devouring the smokes in their lungs!

I am here to pray for my city. I am not here to blame , give reasons .. I am simply here to ask the love of God for our city and community. We are rolling into sins and idols around. We are so sensitive for our own freedom. We make a cage for a meaning of freedom and put ourselves in it. But , Really , the real meaning of life is what heaven stored for us. Whom Jesus brought the real truth. You can be following your personal legend as Paulo Coelho described it in his the Alchemist book . Or simply you can go deeper , know the real purpose of you on earth.

I don’t know about you , but I wanna go deeper. I want to know the unknown, step into the unsearchable treasures. I want to use the source of light in my heart. I can write a long emotional letter to make you impact , no I don’t want to do it. I want to Holy Spirit involve , It is out of our control , if we just surrender to His will , we can have a best life on this earth and the life to come. Some times , I do not have a word to say ! Just coming here to encourage us , pray for our city, our people , our loved ones. That is my mission remind what hope you are holding on! That , you are worthy. Let’s worship Him and go deeper. I want to be rooted to source of life. That I can keep my heads held high on that day.

Big Love (Loving Large)

I know life is harsh and sometimes we can not even bother ourselves to look back. Last Thursday night I heard a testimony from someone that literally shack my heart. He pronounced dead but how God brought him back to life. His hand was full of someone’s blood, How God not only saved his soul also saved him from a tragedy.

I reckon I can not miss the forecast again in Australia. Very fast , Today was the hottest day in Australian history after 1939. About 47 degree above. My Fan is very tired and working from yesterday , My windows is open also. Right now I am typing this is about 24 which compares to 42 is pretty chill. I know. We are in summer. Most of you experiencing of cold weather. Tell me how is the weather there now? Very COLD?

Okay. In this case take your tea or coffee and keep reading my this post. Intentionally I select Loving big because I felt from the start of 2018 we need to remind ourselves Only LOVE matters everything else are in background. If you tell me someone died for me to give me comfort probably I will say go away and do not joke with me. But there is someone who loved me and died for me. The biggest love I know , The largest love we know. The Love of Jesus.

[ A gently chill-wind slapping my face as I am typing this , How good is cold weather 🙂 ].

I want his endless love be within me that I can love people , I can forgive them that I can give my all to them. I even can not imagine this love. I am not talking about romantic love , I am talking that unconditional heavenly love that covered me and you today. Grace and Love how close they are today. People talks about this amazing love but they had never experienced it before.

As Max Lucado says ” God loves us too much to indulge our every whim”.

He loves us in every area of our life. His Loves is so much that He made us like him , A light in the world , His own children.

I remember, One day I asked God . “Please I can not do this , tell me what is the next step” I said. Immediately within a week. I got my answer. He said to me :” Look outside my  child” I said yes Father I see. ” I kept my nation for 40 years I gave them water food and everything they need but do not think I can keep you here for more than two years? ” Such a love overflowed in me from top to down. The peace and his love changed my attitude , and from  then on , I never complained about anything.

Struggle is there yes , But love of God is higher than anything we face.

I love Matthew 5. The sermon on the Mount. It is one of my fav scripture in the Bible. I can not ask God anymore. He says in verse 14 ” You are the light for the whole world..”  We can show to the whole world the eternal love of Father by lighting them. Telling them the truth, acting our life in peace and truth. He says in verse 13 ” You are the salt for everyone on earth..” We can act wisely and be the salt of this broken world. Not by my strength , we do not have any power , we are human. But by his word.

C.S Lewis says ” Though our feeling come and go, God’s love for us does not” .

Let us love each other big. Let us never underestimate the power of loving each other, helping each other. We are living and loving because his first loved us enough. I am thirsty to see the Love of Christ in me and other people.

The Love of CHRIST changes everything in us. My Soul is thirst for Him…

The greatest command of God. Love let it be the first priority of our life. Some of us may doing it already. I am glad you are ahead and obeying God. His Love heals us also. He is the master of healing. I do not know you , But I rely on heavenly Love of Father. I want to be like his Love. I am going to carry the goodness and kindness of him within me. I am going to dream big , love big , live large with an open heart. And I know that I am more than conquerors through him who loved me because NOTHING can separate me from the BIG LOVE of God in Christ Jesus. Amen

 

What is in your life most matter?

Do you love Him?
