Motivational Gifts

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Category: Convention Messages, Gifts of the Spirit, Theology

1Pet 4:10 As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Each of us has received at least one motivation. From time to time, all of us will find ourselves in one of these gifts because we are exhorted to do it. But, over a period of time, we’ll find out that there is one gift in which our flowing is special. But, Continue reading…

Category: Convention Messages, Gifts of the Spirit

Motivational Gifts (Romans 12:1-8) “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is– his good, pleasing and perfect will. For by the grace Continue reading…

Spiritual Gifts

Category: Convention Messages, Gifts of the Spirit

Spiritual gifts are a very important part of the New Testament. Paul says “I would not have you ignorant of spiritual gifts.” There is ignorance about spiritual gifts in many churches, so there needs to be teaching on this subject. Let’s look at the practical side of how spiritual gifts operate in the Church. Spiritual gifts are not just an option. Every member of the Church finds his/her place in the Body. Ephesians 4:14-16 “that Continue reading…

The Holy Spirit

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Category: English, Theology

The Bible teaches us that the Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Holy Trinity. Of course, the doctrine is not presented in the terms we have just used. However, the doctrine is certainly taught. The Holy Spirit is called as the Spirit of God (Gen.1:1), the Spirit of Christ (Rom.8:9), and the Holy Spirit (Luke 24:49). He is also the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth (John 14:17), the Spirit of Glory (1Pet.4:14), the Continue reading…

परमेश्‍वर त्रिएक है

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Category: Hindi, Theology

त्रिएकता का सिद्धान्‍त बाईबिल का एक अनोखी शिक्षा है। हालांकि “त्रिएकता” शब्‍द स्‍वयं बाईबिल में पाई नही जाती है, परन्‍तु यह शिक्षा स्‍पष्‍ट है। इस शिक्षा के कुछ मूल सच्‍चाइयां इस प्रकार से है: 1. परमेश्‍वर एक है और उसकी एकता त्रिएक है। दूसरे शब्‍दों में, पिता, पुत्र, और पवित्रात्‍मा तीन अलग अलग व्‍यक्तित्‍व तो है परन्‍तु तीन अलग अलग ईश्‍वर नही। परमेश्‍वर एक है। 2. परमेश्‍वरत्‍व का हर एक व्‍यक्ति परमेश्‍वर है। पिता परमेश्‍वर Continue reading…

The Humanity of Christ: The Incarnation

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Category: English, Theology

The Incarnation of Christ is a cardinal doctrine of the New Testament. The Bible refers to it as the first link in a chain of events that compose the mystery of godliness. And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory. John refers to the event as the moment Continue reading…

The Divinity of Christ: What Does it Mean?

Monday, April 30, 2012

Category: Theology

When Jesus was born, a star proclaimed the advent of a Divine King and angels joined in choir to announce the birth of a Divine Savior. However, very few in His time ever could believe that He could be the Son of God. His humanity was so normal and evident that it was indubitable. However, the Bible tells us that He was God in flesh (John 1:14). In the study of Christ, called Christology, there Continue reading…

Essential Facts about the Trinity

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Category: English, Theology

The word “Trinity” is not found in the Bible, but the doctrine is explicitly evident there. Much of the confusion governing the doctrine revolves around the human impossibility to conceive how 1 and 1 and 1 make 1 and not three. Perhaps it was Prof. Nathan Wood who once illustrated it this way. He said that the scheme shouldn’t be 1+1+1=1 (couldn’t be), but 1x1x1=1. Of course, though a bit weak in analogy, the illustration Continue reading…

God of Courage and Confidence

Friday, April 20, 2012

Category: English, Theology

“Therefore, when I was planning this, did I do it lightly? Or the things I plan, do I plan according to the flesh, that with me there should be Yes, Yes, and No, No? But as God is faithful, our word to you was not Yes and No. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us–by me, Silvanus, and Timothy–was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes. Continue reading…

प्रेम का परमेश्‍वर

Monday, March 26, 2012

Category: Hindi, Theology

1 यूहुन्‍ना 4:16 में बाईबिल हमें बताती है कि परमेश्‍वर प्रेम है। यह न केवल परमेश्‍वर के बारे में ही प्रकाशन नही बल्कि इस बात का भी प्रकाशन है कि प्रेम क्‍या है। इसका अर्थ यह है कि प्रेम पवित्र एवं परमेश्‍वर का स्‍वभाव है| इसीलिए शैतान भी प्रेम को ही अपने आक्रमण का निशाना बनाता है। जब बाईबिल बताती है कि परमेश्‍वर प्रेम है तो इसका मतलब यह है कि प्रेम वैसे ही अनंत Continue reading…
