Read: Psalm 55:22

The LORD is our burden-bearer. When He permits a burden to fall upon us, He does not move away from us. He stays with us in our troubles. He is ever near us to bear our burdens. “The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth” (Psalm 145:18). “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble...

Read: Matthew 24:35

What a glorious affirmation by the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ concerning all the words He has revealed to us! Every word in the Bible that He has revealed is here to stay. You may sooner see the heaven and earth pass away than His words fail. The permanency of every word that the Lord has revealed by His Spirit (cf. 1 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16) is here guaranteed by Him...

Read: Romans 12:1a

Though the apostle Paul was a firm, uncompromising teacher and defender of God’s Word, his exhortations were affectionate and gentle. Teachers of God’s Word, whether at home or in the church, while unwavering in their commitment to God’s truth, must nonetheless teach it with tenderness and longsuffering.

The word “beseech” can mean “to call alongside, summon” and thus “exhort” or “encourage...


James 5:16b

Read: James 5:16b

What is effectual fervent prayer? The words “effectual fervent” are translated from one Greek word (energoumenÄ“) from which we get the English word “energy”. Here it denotes an energetic, operative prayer. We must not be contented with weak prayers.

The energetic, effective prayer comes from “a righteous man”. In the context of our verse, the righteous man is the one who confesses his sins to the one whom he has offended in order that they may be reconciled and pray together...


Psalm 103:2

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Saturday, 20 May 2017

Read: Psalm 103:2

The proper response to divine favours received is a personal commitment to bless the LORD. Thankfulness leads the beneficiary to worship the Giver, who is the LORD. In the previous verse, the psalmist has already exhorted his soul twice to bless the LORD. Now for a third time, he says, “Bless the LORD”. Such repetition denotes the earnestness of his desire to express his gratitude. Besides, he stirs up his soul to employ itself in grateful worship of the LORD. The worship of the LORD must arise from the inner man. It is a soul-work...

Read: Psalm 32:1

Only God can forgive sin. “To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses” (Daniel 9:9). In Isaiah 43:25, the Lord declares, “I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.” Psalm 130:4 says, “But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared...


Ephesians 1:7

Read: Ephesians 1:7

Redemption! What a glorious word! It belongs to everyone who has trusted the Lord Jesus Christ. Only through Christ can one inherit redemption. The Greek word for “redemption” appears about ten times in the New Testament. It depicts the freedom of a prisoner or a slave through the payment of money. The money paid to set the captive free is known as the ransom. This is the idea that Paul had in mind when he wrote, “In whom we have redemption through his blood...


Psalm 37:4

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 17 May 2017

Read: Psalm 37:4

The exhortation given to us in Psalm 37:4 is to seek our happiness nowhere else but in the LORD – “Delight thyself also in the LORD”. Our best delight is in the LORD and Him alone. The worldly delights are vain and deceitful, for they teach us to despise the LORD and His holiness. It will be an utter waste of time to chase after the fickle joys of the world. The genuine, lasting happiness is in the LORD...


John 8:31

Read: John 8:31

Jesus was being challenged by some Jewish Pharisees concerning His claim that He is the Son of God. However, Jesus quashed their attempts to discredit Him. He never sought to conceal the truth, even in the face of most fearsome opposition. With greater boldness and determination our Lord declared the truth, even though the Jewish leaders were fuming with anger. The more they opposed, the more He testified...


Psalm 103:1

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Monday, 15 May 2017

Read: Psalm 103:1

This is the first line of a psalm of praise, which glorifies the Lord for all His gracious blessings upon His servant, David. The object of praise in this psalm is the LORD; and that is clearly set forth right at the beginning of the verse, when it says, "Bless the LORD." The LORD is worthy of our praise at all times. As Psalms 145:3 tells us, "Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised...
