Presbyter's Message

Motto for the Year 2017    
"Do All to the Glory of God" 
(1 Cor 10:31) 

December 2017

From the Presbyter's Desk:

Dearly Beloved,

Greetings in the most glorious name of Jesus Christ.

Let us give thanks and praise God for his care, comfort and protection given to us during the previous month. 

Now we have entered into the last month of the year 2017. Let us praise god for his blessings given to us during the bygone years. The month of December is an important month for us. 

Christmas, the remembrance of the birth of Jesus is the most joyous celebration of this month. According to Luke 2:10 the angel said "I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all; Jesus offers mankind freedom, hope and peace. 

Most people want a hopeful and happy life. For this happy life they give importance for Financial security, Future security, Well being, Renown power, Recognition - But anyone getting all the above, that person is moody and fails to fulfill all expectations or wishes. He cannot be happy, why such kind of person's face is always moody and frustrated?

Here the words of Jeremiah have importance. Jeremiah 30:6 ''Cries of fear are heard. Terror, not peace. Can a man bear children? Then why do we see every strongman with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor. Every face turned deathly pale? The people are away from god. ''I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. During the Christmas season, you can bring forth the holy one of God, Jesus Christ through your life into the world. According to John 15:11"I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. Christmas is nothing but experiencing and celebrating the grace and truth revealed through Jesus Christ. In Matthew 2; they started from the east and they were very happy and the star they had seen in the east. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed [Matthew 2:10].Today my brothers and sisters, let Jesus be born on your heart on his Christmas. Invite them into your heart. God Himself will honor your invitation and from this day forth, you will experience this the most beautiful Christmas you have ever known.

Let us all join our hands and hearts in prayer as we celebrate this very special birth of our lord Jesus Christ.

Happy Christmas, with love from all of us, May god bless you and your family...

With Love and Prayer,
J Mathews achen
