John 8:36


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Sunday, 04 March 2018

Read: John 8:36

Here, Jesus first of all directs our attention to the fact that He is the “Son”. By using the title “Son”, He wanted to draw us to the fact that He is the undisputed Heir of all things, who wields the ultimate authority and power concerning all matters, even to free a man from his servitude. So in the preceding verse, He had said, “And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever” (John 8:35). As the only begotten Son of God, Christ enjoys unchallenged, eternal right to exercise the full authority vested in Him by the Father to liberate slaves...

John 8:32

Read: John 8:32

Jesus said, “Ye shall know the truth”. What then, is “the truth” that we shall know? In the Gospel of John, the word “truth” frequently refers to Christ and His words. John wrote about Christ in John 1:14 that “the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” Again, he affirmed in John 1:17 that “grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” When Jesus spoke concerning John the Baptist who had prepared the way for Him, He said that “he bare witness unto the truth...

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...

2 Corinthians 5:17


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Thursday, 01 March 2018

Read: 2 Corinthians 5:17

What is depicted here is the real prospect of a genuine Christian, i.e. any man who is in Christ. His relation to Christ is so entrenched that he is portrayed to “be in Christ”. He is united to Christ, just as the branch is to the vine. The Christian is one who abides in Christ. So Jesus said to His disciples, “Abide in me, and I in you...

Psalm 100:5


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 28 February 2018

Read: Psalm 100:5

What should God’s people think of Him all the time? Oh, let them remember that the Lord is good, full of mercy and ever-faithful. Herein, we have a very concise and yet comprehensive declaration concerning an infinite God whose attributes are unfathomable.

The very first declaration in our text is that “the LORD is good”. The statement that “the LORD is good” reminds us of the absolute goodness of His divine nature. According to Exodus 34:6, the LORD is “abundant in goodness...

Psalm 100:4b


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Tuesday, 27 February 2018

Read: Psalm 100:4b

To be thankful to God is the Christians’ great moral and spiritual duty. Just as in Psalm 100:4, the apostle Paul also encourages us in Colossians 3:15 to “be ye thankful”. Paul further says, “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him” (Colossians 3:17).

Thankfulness to God is composed of many holy emotions towards God. In thankful hearts, there are lively feelings of pure joy for the gifts they have received, and fervent love for their benevolent Giver. Those stirrings of holy sentiments will gush out in songs of thankful praise...

Psalm 100:4a


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Monday, 26 February 2018

Read: Psalm 100:4a

First of all, here we have an invitation to come to the place of God’s worship. Secondly, here we also have an instruction on how we should enter His place of worship.

The verb “enter” is a strong imperative, commanding all His people to be in the place of worship. It is not merely a suggestion that it is good to be in the church, though that statement is wholly true. The divine intention of this command, unquestionably, is that every believer ought to gather together in the appointed place of worship to praise Him...

Matthew 6:31


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Monday, 26 February 2018

Read: Matthew 6:31

Often we are very concerned about what we shall eat, drink or clothe ourselves with. Such concerns about our mundane provisions have seldom been thought of as an evil matter. But our Lord Jesus reproves us for being anxious about the provision of even basic necessities. If the Lord prohibits anxiety about gaining such essential things for our life, how much more condemnable would be our craving for luxuries of life. Uneasiness and displeasure created by an inordinate desire for material extravagance would surely be severely condemned by our Lord...

James 5:13


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Sunday, 25 February 2018

Read: James 5:13

In a local congregation of believers, a variety of experiences may be found at a given time. While some people experience severe afflictions, others are presented with reasons for jubilation. It is also true that all alike are subject to afflictions and happiness. Both those types of experiences can be in different persons or in the same individuals at the same time. And sometimes, change from one extreme to the other can happen suddenly...

James 5:8


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Saturday, 24 February 2018

Read: James 5:8

For some Christians, life on earth is filled with trials. Hostility, ridicule, oppression, persecution, etc. are their daily experiences. In the preceding context of our verse, the apostle James wrote about the exploitation of the poor and needy. To be ridiculed and exploited when you are already poor and suffering is very excruciating. Certain biblical saints who have been in such circumstances have prayed that God would shorten their lives (1 Kings 19:1-4). Some cried, “O God, how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever...
