Romans 5:9


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Saturday, 15 July 2017

Read: Romans 5:9

In this verse, Paul delineates another blessing of our justification. The phrase, “much more then”, at the beginning of the verse introduces an argument from the greater to the lesser: if Christ has already achieved the great work of justifying sinners by shedding His blood, He will certainly perform the comparatively simple task of keeping them safe. If, when we were enemies, He overcame all that was in the way of our salvation, then now that we are His own people...

1 Peter 5:7


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Friday, 14 July 2017

Read: 1 Peter 5:7

Christians have great hope of exaltation at Christ’s coming, which is yet future. What about the humbling ordeals in their life on earth? Well, 1 Peter 5:7 avows that God will abide with them as their support in their humbling circumstances. Early Christians suffered much humiliation and debilitating circumstances. Because of their faith in Christ, they suffered loss of family standing, loss of friends, loss of status and respect, loss of their livelihood and, in extreme cases, loss of even their lives...

Romans 8:2


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Thursday, 13 July 2017

Read: Romans 8:2

The freedom that Jesus offers (John 8:32, 36) is not an unworkable optimism, but a most wonderful and powerful experience in every genuine believer. In our text, the apostle Paul describes Christian freedom as a powerful and enduring operation of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers.

The word “law” here indicates the governing influence or operation of the Spirit. The Spirit is also characterised as “the Spirit of life”, that is, the life-giving Spirit. Jesus said in John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit...

James 1:13b


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 12 July 2017

Read: James 1:13b

Though our trials are permitted by God, He is not the author of the temptation of sin that may come simultaneously with those trials. No temptation of sin is designed or discharged by God. As James says, “for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man”.

God will never cajole and coax us to sin. God will never influence us to sin by infusing evil thoughts, inclinations, or desires. Nothing God does is evil; His ways with His people will never lead them to sin. The tempter is the devil ...

1 John 2:17


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Tuesday, 11 July 2017

Read: 1 John 2:17

The world is passing away. Its passing is depicted here as an ongoing process. Nothing in this world is permanent and sure. Our experience on earth is one of constant uncertainty and ruin. So Jesus cautioned us in Matthew 6:19, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal”. No reasonable person would lay up treasure where moth and rust destroy and thieves break through and steal, would he...

Philippians 3:14


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Monday, 10 July 2017

Read: Philippians 3:14

Paul’s Christian life was characterized by an unstoppable zeal for Christ. He did not want to be weighed down by his past experiences or distracted by the present issues. This he testified in the preceding verse, “but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before...

James 1:22


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Sunday, 09 July 2017

Read: James 1:22

There are two sorts of hearers in the church, according to James. Though all the worshippers appear to be listening to a sermon, only some of them truly receive and apply it to their lives. The rest, though they appear to have paid attention to what is being preached, do not seem to bring their lives into subjection to the Word preached faithfully...

Philippians 2:15a


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Saturday, 08 July 2017

Read: Philippians 2:15a

Herein is God’s expectation of how His children ought to be in this world of sin and violence. There must be a marked difference in their conduct from that of the unregenerate people of this world. Christians ought to shine as lights in this dark world; that would be possible if and only if they are what the Spirit of God urges them to be in today’s text...

Romans 12:2a


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Friday, 07 July 2017

Read: Romans 12:2a

Having exhorted Christians in the previous verse to “present your bodies as a living sacrifice, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service”, the apostle now urges them not to conform to the world. In other words, if Christians desire to please God, they must not be worldly. It is impossible to serve the Lord in a holy and acceptable manner, if one is conformed to the world...

Psalm 37:5


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Thursday, 06 July 2017

Read: Psalm 37:5

Life is a journey that we should never take without the LORD. Our journeys must be with Him. We must begin our journeys with Him, continue with Him, and end with Him. The whole course of our life must be committed to the LORD.

All the affairs or businesses of life must be committed to the LORD in prayer. All of them must be considered only if they are in accordance with His Word. If His Spirit and His Word prohibit us, let us not travel that path. Let us stay with Him...
