Philippians 2:14


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 31 January 2018

Read: Philippians 2:14

We are dissuaded from engaging in two evils, namely, murmuring and disputing. Interestingly, the apostle is concerned that some engage in spiritual activities with murmuring and disputing. In other words, they practise religion without sincerity and joy. When God-given duties are done with murmuring and a disgruntled spirit, such service will be unacceptable. So, all Christians must guard themselves against such evil conduct...

Psalm 84:11b


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Tuesday, 30 January 2018

Read: Psalm 84:11b

The first part of this verse, which we meditated upon yesterday, taught us that “... the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory.” Since the LORD, like the sun, gives us grace and glory, we have absolutely no reason to fear that He might hold back certain good things from us. According to our text, if we walk uprightly, no good thing will He withhold...

Psalm 84:11a


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Monday, 29 January 2018

Read: Psalm 84:11

Here two emblems, “sun” and “shield”, are used by the psalmist to express his most intimate thoughts about the LORD God in his special circumstance. Those symbolic designations of the LORD represent every believer’s assurance that the LORD is his provider and protector.

To all God’s people, He is like the sun that casts its light and warmth upon the earth. His favours are innumerable and invaluable, and are freely given like the light of the sun. Every day, like the sun which emits its light,...

Psalm 37:5


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Sunday, 28 January 2018

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...

Psalm 37:4


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Saturday, 27 January 2018

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...

Psalm 37:3


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Friday, 26 January 2018

Read: Psalm 37:3

Genuine piety is enthusiastically encouraged here. The counsel given in Psalm 37 is an excellent antidote to dull, bogus piety that characterises a large number of professing Christians of our time. True piety is not cold and impassive. It is vibrant in its operation and cheerfully optimistic.

A man of genuine piety, first of all, is one who trusts the LORD. With unwavering faith, he relies on the LORD. His heart is wholly fixed upon the LORD. In the midst of adversity, hostility and calamity, he trusts in the LORD that He “is able to do exceeding abundantly...

James 1:22


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Thursday, 25 January 2018

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...

John 14:15


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 24 January 2018

Read: John 14:15

What a privilege it is to love Christ! We love Him only because He first loved us (cf. 1 John 4:19). We did not love Him first. We were His enemies, and lived in defiance and utter disobedience to His Word. Paul has aptly said in Colossians 1:21-22, “And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled in the body of his flesh through death...

Psalm 73:25


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 24 January 2018

Read: Psalm 73:25

The psalmist, by using a very persuasive Hebrew device of a question and an assertion, here expresses his profound and firm love for God. He is supremely satisfied in God. He desires no one more than the LORD whom he has been trusting. Such should be the sentiment of every child of God towards God.

By asking “Whom have I in heaven but thee?”, the psalmist exalts God above all the angels and the souls of the departed who are in God’s presence. None of the angels – not even the archangel...

Psalm 40:8


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Tuesday, 23 January 2018

Read: Psalm 40:8

Reading the words in today’s verse and its context is like eavesdropping on our Lord’s innermost thoughts and His prayer before His Father. In His very private and solemn communion with His Father, He said, “Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart...
