Hebrews 4:12a


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Friday, 05 January 2018

Read: Hebrews 4:12a

Three astounding properties of the Word of God are revealed in our reading from Hebrews 4:12. No other book wields such qualities as the Bible. This is because it is “the word of God”. It is divine. It is that which God has revealed through His selected servants (cf. 2 Peter 1:21). It is God’s revelation of His truth. All that it says is from God.

The first quality of the Bible mentioned here is “quick”. The word “quick” is the translation of a Greek word zon, which means “living”. Its original verbal form (present participle) in the Greek text suggests a constantly active kind of living...

1 Peter 1:23a


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Thursday, 04 January 2018

Read: 1 Peter 1:23a

All genuine Christians are “born again”. A second birth other than the natural birth is mentioned here. Jesus in his conversation with Nicodemus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). So, being “born again” is to enter God’s kingdom. Jesus tells us, “Ye must be born again” (John 3:7). In other words, no one enters His kingdom by virtue of his natural birth. Even though you are born to Christian parents, you do not enter His kingdom until you are born again....

Matthew 24:35

Read: Matthew 24:35

What a glorious affirmation by the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ concerning all the words He has revealed to us! Every word in the Bible that He has revealed is here to stay. You may sooner see the heaven and earth pass away than His words fail. The permanency of every word that the Lord has revealed by His Spirit (cf. 1 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16) is here guaranteed by Him...

Psalm 103:2


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Tuesday, 02 January 2018

Read: Psalm 103:2

The proper response to divine favours received is a personal commitment to bless the LORD. Thankfulness leads the beneficiary to worship the Giver, who is the LORD. In the previous verse, the psalmist has already exhorted his soul twice to bless the LORD. Now for a third time, he says, “Bless the LORD”. Such repetition denotes the earnestness of his desire to express his gratitude. Besides, he stirs up his soul to employ itself in grateful worship of the LORD. The worship of the LORD must arise from the inner man. It is a soul-work...

Psalm 103:1


Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Monday, 01 January 2018

Read: Psalm 103:1

This is the first line of a psalm of praise, which glorifies the Lord for all His gracious blessings upon His servant, David. The object of praise in this psalm is the LORD; and that is clearly set forth right at the beginning of the verse, when it says, "Bless the LORD." The LORD is worthy of our praise at all times. As Psalms 145:3 tells us, "Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised...
