Galatians 2:20a

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Thursday, 14 September 2017

Read: Galatians 2:20a

Paul testifies here the reality of his salvation and its continuing influence in his life. This ought to be the testimony of every Christian. By the expression, “I am crucified with Christ”, Paul depicts the fact that when we are joined to Christ by faith, we die with Him. The curse of the law against our sins demanded our death. So Christ bore our sins and died on the cross on our behalf to take away the curse of the law against our sins. As Paul said in Colossians 2:14, “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us...

Read: John 10:28

What is eternal life? It refers to being saved from sin and from God’s judgment, and then living now and forever in the spiritual blessings that the eternal God has prepared for us. It denotes the life that one can live in relationship with God. It not only speaks of the life with God in heaven after death, but also of life now as we live here on earth with God...


James 4:7

Read: James 4:7

Who can stand up against the Almighty? No, not one. No elaborate argument is needed to corroborate this truth. Is it then not a wise counsel to submit ourselves to God? Yet because of our foolishness, the text uses the word “therefore” (which points to what is said in the previous verse) to reinforce the reason for the command to submit to God, namely: “God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.” If our hearts are not taught to humbly submit to God, we will soon be resisted by God...


Romans 5:8

Read: Romans 5:8

Oh, how amazing is God’s love towards us sinners! His love towards us was manifested through the death of Christ “while we were yet sinners”. No merit of ours has moved Him to love us. He was not reciprocating our love for Him when He manifested His love through Christ’s death. All about us was displeasing to Him when He acted to express His love towards us through the death of Christ. He loved us of His own accord...


Hebrews 11:6a

Read: Hebrews 11:6a

Let us consider what faith is all about. Faith needs to have the knowledge concerning God. In other words, one needs to take heed to what God has revealed about Himself and His will. Only by hearing the Word of God can one come to know God, His plan of salvation, His commandments, promises, etc.

However, a man’s mere knowledge of the Scriptures does not necessarily prove that he has faith. A man may know some Scriptural doctrine and yet not have faith. Granted, knowledge of God’s Word can lead to mental assent or agreement to all it says...


Psalm 119:11

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Saturday, 09 September 2017

Read: Psalm 119:11

This confession of David to the LORD reveals to us that he was very conscious of the possibility of being overpowered by temptation of sin. Temptation of sin is a terrible evil that lurks around every man to seek to destroy his testimony, peace and spiritual well-being. There is also a propensity in man to fall into this evil. So David sought for an effective precaution against sin. It was a very wise act by David to safeguard himself against sin...


Psalm 21:13

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Friday, 08 September 2017

Read: Psalm 21:13

David spoke these words at the end of a psalm in which he delineated the struggles he had against the enemies of the LORD. Earlier, he spoke of men who acted wickedly against God. He said, “For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform” (v. 11). He was thankful that the wicked were not allowed to carry out all their schemes fully. He also expressed his expectation that the LORD would defeat the enemies and cause them to retreat...


John 15:5a

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Thursday, 07 September 2017

Read: John 15:5a

First and foremost, we need to observe the sharp distinction that Christ has drawn between the vine and the branches. The branches are not to be confused with the vine, and the vine is to be regarded as very different from the branches. Likewise, the words, “I am” and “ye are” also point to the contrast that Christ wanted us to take note of...


James 4:16

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 06 September 2017

Read: James 4:16

Certain kinds of rejoicing are sinful. James here particularly warns us against rejoicing in our boastings. Being happy and confident about tomorrow is a common desire of man. Whenever man feels good about his future, he tends to rejoice and even boast of it. Man rejoices to brag about his success. Such rejoicing, says the apostle James, is evil. It is foolish and hurtful...


Psalm 34:6

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Tuesday, 05 September 2017

Read: Psalm 34:6

David refers to himself as a “poor man”, as well as one with many “troubles”. Certainly, he was feeling helpless altogether. So he cried unto the Lord. We see him here as a mournful man before the Lord. How miserable it must have been for David to feel like a distressed, despondent derelict!He could only “cry”! The Hebrew word for “cry” (qara’) is a very common word in the Old Testament which denotes a loud, intense shout. A man in great pain cannot help but cry out. Many such heartfelt cries of God’s people are recorded in the Bible...
