I came to know Christ at the age of 46. Many times I had wished that I know Him earlier i.e. when I was a child. If I had attended Sunday school I would have gone through Bible lessons and memorised Bible verses. Today, I am still grumbling that I cannot remember Bible verses.
When a baby is born, we feed him (her). We make sure that he (she) gets the nutrition he needs to grow strong and healthy.
In 1999, I was walking in darkness until the light of God shone into my life. From then on, I followed His light… The Bible says: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17). I let go of the past and allowed the Holy Spirit to guide me. My favorite verses are: Colossians 3:1 – 4:6.
Dear Father God,
Thank You for Your saving grace. I was lost but now I’m found. I was sick but now I’m healed. Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. What I want is not to see wonders that dazzle me and to be rapt in ecstatic visions and splendors, but a little light on the path I tread, a lamp that will burn steadfastly and helpfully over the work that I have to do.
I like what I read this morning: We are walkers through the city of this world, and we are often called to go out into its darkness; let us never venture there without the light giving word, lest we slip with our feet. Each man should use the word of God personally, practically and habitually, that he may see his way and see what lies in it.
My New Year resolution is to give at least 10% of my time to God, sit at Jesus’ feet and learn from Him.
