Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Monday, 13 November 2017

Read: Psalm 18:30

David looks back at his experience of God’s unerring guidance and protection in his endurance of many dreadful troubles, and now declares, “As for God, his way is perfect”. David does not complain against God for all his troubles, but glorifies Him with his testimony that God’s ways are perfect. He stands up for God, declaring the perfection of the divine providence...

Read: 2 Peter 1:4a

The promises of God are assurances which God has given to His people in the Scriptures. We can trust God to bestow all His promises to us because He is faithful and able to fulfil all that He has promised. Hence, none of His promises will fail.

These promises are “exceeding great” because they come from an infinitely great God. The promises of the Bible are an expression of God’s greatness, all-sufficiency, omnipotence, omniscience, grace, mercy, love, etc. His great power to bring about all His plans and promises, makes all His promises to be exceedingly great...


Colossians 3:16c

The singing of Christians ought to rise from their hearts unto the Lord. It cannot be heartless singing. Our sacred songs ought to be the vocal expressions of our inner devotion to the Lord. David, the sweet psalmist of Israel, once said, “I will praise thee with my whole heart” (Psalm 138:1). Heartfelt singing must characterise all our singing of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs...


Galatians 1:9b

Read: Galatians 1:9b

An absolute denunciation of every preacher of the false gospel is uttered here. This is the second time in two successive verses that Paul denounces false preachers. In the previous verse he said, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:8). Whether it be a man of repute (like the apostle) or a heavenly being (like an angel), if he distorts the truth of the Gospel, he is an accursed individual...

Read: 2 Peter 1:4b

Having described the promises of God as “exceeding great and precious”, the apostle Peter now enumerates God’s ultimate purpose in giving His promises to the believers. God’s plan is to aid the believers, through the promises, to become “partakers of the divine nature”.

The Greek root word for “partaker” (koinōnós) is the same Greek word for “fellowship”. It means sharer or partner. What does it mean to share in the divine nature? It certainly does not denote the teachings of the heathen religions...

Read: Colossians 3:20

God commands us to have proper conduct towards our dear ones in the family. God is insistent on how His children would regard and relate to one another in the home. All our family relationships are to be managed and nurtured according to the divine guidelines given in His Word. If we truly fear God and maintain a life of piety, then it ought to be seen in our conduct at home, in our relationships to our parents, our children, our spouses, our siblings and our other relatives...

What is prayer? Prayer is the reverential, worshipful communication of a genuine believer with God. It allows him to affirm his faith and confidence in the Triune God, to give thanks for the blessings received, to confess his sins, to consecrate his life to do the divine will concerning him and serve Him, to submit his petitions and pleadings for divine help in his needs and trials, etc. Prayer opens the door for him to flee from temptations and trials into the refuge of God’s glorious presence...


Matthew 4:19

Read: Matthew 4:19

This verse records the words which the Lord Jesus spoke to Andrew and Simon. What a glorious call Jesus extended to those fishermen of Galilee! He took great pleasure in those people who were at the lower strata of society and offered them what they could not have otherwise inherited. His words are full of invitation, incentives and promises. They are for the joyful contemplation and obedience of anyone, regardless of status...

Read: Romans 10:16

The faithful, clear preaching of the Gospel will not necessarily result in its acceptance by the hearers. Even though a biblically sound message is preached by a godly, faithful preacher whom God has appointed, Scripture reminds us that hearers could still reject it.

The apostle Paul says without any hesitation, “But they have not all obeyed the gospel.” In Acts 28:24, concerning the response of the Jews who came to hear Paul expound the Old Testament Scriptures concerning the kingdom of God, Luke reported...


Psalm 105:3

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Saturday, 04 November 2017

Read: Psalm 105:3

Believers are exhorted to “glory” in the LORD’s holy name. The Hebrew word rendered “glory” is the same word from which we get the word “hallelujah” (meaning “praise ye the LORD”). It denotes praise. The special subject mentioned for believers’ praise is the holy name of their God. In other words, the fact that the LORD is holy should help them to rejoice and praise Him from their hearts...
