What's with the title?

That title may not appease everyone, but i mean it very well. How many of us have sat and thought whether Jesus dying on the cross was a blessing? Well I have.. And that's why I thank him.. Its hard to understand this logic.. but if Jesus had not shed his blood on the cross, none of us would have been here.. Who can say that they would have been saved without Christ's death? I'm sorry to say this, but none of us qualify.

We are all responsible for crucifying him. Each time we sin, remember the painful blows that he had to go through for that, remember the nails driving through his body, remember the blood gushing out. And yet, he loved us. Immeasureably!!!

Think about it. That's why even though i am guilty of crucifying him, i am thankful for him taking up the cross!! It's because he conquered sin and death, that i am able to write this blog. So thanks is not the right word. In fact, no word suits. I'm grateful; amazed at his love for us.... Words won't do justice.

That's why i've decided to live for him. What about you?

You will never walk alone

I said, "The path is steep." He said, "I'm at your side." I said, "But I am weak." He said, "For you I died." I said, "Dark valleys come." He said, "I'll guide you through." I said, "But I'm not brave." He said, "I'll walk with you." I said, "Be light to me, And strength as I go on." He said, "I'm more. I'm love, You'll never walk alone." -Author unknown

Quotations on Ministry

John Chrysostom (to his congregation) : To me it is nothing when I am applauded and well spoken of. There is only one thing I ask of you — to prove your approval of me through your works. That is how you can speak well of me, and that is what is going to do you good. This, to me, is the greatest honor. I prefer it to a material crown. I do not desire applause and being well spoken of. I have one request to make — for you to listen to me in quiet attentiveness and to put my advice into practice. This is not a theater. You don’t sit here in order to admire actors and to applaud them. This is a place where you must learn the things of God. Matthew Henry: Those who teach by their doctrine must teach by their life, or else they pull down with one hand what they build up with the other. A.W. Tozer: I do not preach any new truth. I do not have any new doctrine. . . . We must have a revival that will mean purity of heart as a normal standard for everybody. We must be clean people, and not o

Keep on praying, and God will do the rest

A new minister was walking with an older, more seasoned minister in the garden one day. Feeling a bit insecure about what God wanted him to do,  he asked the older preacher for some advice. The older preacher walked up to a rosebush and handed the young preacher a rosebud and told him to open it without tearing off any petals. The young preacher looked in disbelief at the older preacher and was trying to figure out what a rosebud could possibly have to do with his wanting to know the will of God for his life and ministry. But because of his great respect for the older preacher, he proceeded to try to unfold the rose, while keeping every petal intact. It wasn't long before he realized how impossible this was to do. Noticing the younger preacher's inability to unfold the rosebud without tearing it, the older preacher began to recite the following poem. It is only a tiny rosebud, A flower of God's design; But I cannot unfold the petals With these clumsy hands of min
