Lenten Devotion Day #40

HOLY SATURDAY:

Dear people of God: Thank you for joining with me through this devotion. Your participation and encouragement helped me to continue with these daily Lenten devotions. Even as I seek the Lord and depend on the scriptures everyday to give us insights to ponder upon and build a closer relationship with the Lord, I want to acknowledge that we are in this time that is quite challenging as we wade through the uncharted waters. This Covid-19 pandemic has changed our priorities and perspectives and has indeed brought many to knees.

In this Lenten season we focused on three areas of our relationship - >GOD>>SELF>>>OTHERS; to know and have a closer relationship with our God in Christ Jesus we saw three ways to attain it >Bible reading>>Meditation>>>Prayer. And then to know self and to control self, along with the scriptures we need to observe three things >Fasting>>Confession>>>Repentance. Finally the relationship with others by observing and reaching out to others by >Almsgiving>>Helping/Volunteering>>>Care and support. You see in all these nine items it was only one idea to observe and practice was suggested expect the last one - Care and Support.

George Bernard Shaw, an incident is narrated that he called his doctor and told him that he has chest pain and wanted the doctor to come and visit. The doctor retorted back saying, I have many patients at the clinic and you please come. Shaw replied, I'm bed-ridden with severe pain and did not even have a cup of tea, you come and take care of me. Finally the doctor arrived and went up the flight of stairs to Shaw's bedroom and slumped in the coach with his hands on the chest saying he has chest pain. Immediately Shaw sprang up on the floor and gave the doctor an aspirin to be kept under his tongue and then went to prepare a cup of tea and then gave it to him.

The doctor enjoyed the tea and then wrote a bill to Shaw and Shaw was enraged and said: I took care of you and you are giving me a bill, instead? For which the doctor said, your complain was that you could not get out of the bed and now you are out of the bed and you also complained you did not have tea, not only you made tea and served me but you made some for yourself. So I treated you and you pay the bill and added Mr. Shaw, you did not think about yourself when you saw someone in pain and that is more important and tore the bill.

Dear friend, Jesus said: This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friend if you do what I command you." (John 15:12-14) As we end this period of Lent, can we think about others and obey the command of our Savior who died on the cross, thinking about you and me? While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. As we look forward to the glorious resurrection Sunday, let us rejoice in the blessings that God has bestowed upon us and care and support one another in Christs' name.
PRAY: Dear God, thank you for helping me through this period to observe certain norms that I would not have done regularly, help me Lord I pray not to think upon myself but willing to spring into action for others so that I will willingly obey your command to love. AMEN

Lenten Devotion Day #39

GOOD FRIDAY: When Christ's sacrificial death on the cross brought salvation to every mankind, how can we reciprocate so great a sacrifice. No amount of wealth and gift can equal it, but we are called to care for one another. What a perfect way to honor Christ's sacrifice. "Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." Colossians 3:12 This kind and material of clothing is what we can share through caring and supporting one another.

Your quality of clothing reflects Christ sacrifice on the cross, if you are God's chosen people. If we are called as God's chosen people it comes with a responsibility and response, "....children, should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, FOR THIS IS PLEASING TO GOD." (1 Timothy 5:4) If we are practicing the religion of Christ, we should please God. Here the context is within family, but certainly to extend beyond family.

As Paul again says in Romans "now we who are strong have an obligation to bear (care) the weaknesses of those without strength, and not to please ourselves, Each one of us must please his neighbor for his good, to build him up." (15:1 & 2) Dear child of God how can we build someone who is weak, and without proper clothing or maybe even naked in the sight of God. Do we have the proper clothing that we can share and care for one another.

We certainly know some clothing is not appropriate and even dread to see when people are dressed with such clothes. God has given us an opportunity and chance to reach out with clothes that will never wear out, clothes that can be passed on from one to another for even from one generation to another, until Christ comes. As we meditate on the sufferings of Christ today (Good Friday) let us also wear good clothing that it would be pleasing to our family, neighbors and ultimately to God.

PRAY: Lord clothe me with your compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience that with such clothes I will be able to care and support, family, friends, neighbors and all your children. AMEN.

Lenten Devotion Day #38

Today is Maundy Thursday: A very important day in our history of Christianity. A ritual and a tradition that is significant for our faith and spiritual growth. This day is remembered for many acts that Jesus initiated around the Passover, like washing the feet, the Lord's supper, maybe the fellowship of believers to care and support one another. This day can also be attributed to enhance care and support one another. The very fact that one man was willing to open his house for guys who were looked upon as fugitives by the society, tells that he was willing to risk himself.

When the pandemic of AIDS virus was prevalent in late eighties and in the nineties, no one wanted to be associated with them nor wanted to provide hope, comfort and support, rather we were judgmental of them. Today we have the COVID-19, we may not have the same approach as of AIDS virus but still we want to be away from them. Yes it is wise as a responsible citizen not to get contracted with such virus but do we think of ways to help another in "whatever" way possible? Paul exhorts "Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." Galatians 6:2 Care and support is to carry someone's burden that way their burden will be lightened or even removed altogether.

The dictionary meaning of burden implies so as to preform a duty or to carry a responsibility. We understand burden is a heavy load to carry, so also to care and to support comes with commitment and sacrifice and it is not easy. It is very important of how to approach the word and accept it by action. Are we willing to care and support for one another with the burden that the the Lord has bestowed upon us? But many questions arise, why should I carry, whose burden I should address, or how much should I deal with, and even thoughts like, if I carry someone's burden they are free but I'm now burdened, and who will carry my burden? But then we are focusing on the wrong questions and not asking the right questions. When God calls us to care and support, it comes with a cost or even may be a loss.

PRAY: Lord help me to bear the cost even if it is a loss so we will fulfill the law of Christ Jesus. AMEN

Lenten Devotion Day #37

"Whatever" seems to be broad term and Jesus gives us that leverage to start somewhere. A person needs spiritual, emotional and physical care and support. We hear the news that after all this COVID-19 crisis, it will be very sad if it becomes "business as usual" rather it should be bring us to our knees and dependence on God our Creator and Sustain-er. A lot of people would become depressed and may go through emotional imbalance, especially those who recovered from this virus or the ones who lost family members or friends due to this pandemic.

The other part is the physical impact due to the loss of jobs, health issues and finding and providing basic needs for the family. Interestingly God has specialized each and everyone of us to care and support people in one or the other form. The specialization lies in "whatever" you and I do in the name of Jesus! Caring involves to give selflessly, you don't care what happens to you (like the front-liners in the hospital or the essential service providers).

When Jesus said "greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends" (john 15:13) he meant total care, one who is willing to do anything for his friend. Jesus said "love your neighbor as yourself" (Mark 12:31) but then we ask "who is my neighbor?" or even question God "Am I my brother's keeper?". Dear caregiver or supporter, your 'whatever' is not a light thing, it is precious in the sight of God and pertains to the need of man. Are we willing to make a difference today?

PRAY: Dear God, who taught us to love our neighbors help us to care for one-another always. AMEN

Lenten Devotion Day #36

Dear friends

CARE & SUPPORT: When the world is reeling into despair and despondency, I cannot think of a better theme, than to care and support one another. Jesus said "whatever you do to the least of my brothers or sisters you do to me" (Mathew 25:40) This week, as the US top brass predict, it is going to take a toll and with over 10,000 deaths, hope seems to be thin but you and I can make an impact. We can bring hope and cheer in the lives of people, just by telling we care about them.

Everyone has a call and how we respond makes a difference. When Jesus said 'whatever' you do, simply means everyone of us has something to do, and you know it, it comes your way, you are being called, you are urged, a spirit within you is inciting you to do it. We can do it when we support and care for the least, who are underprivileged or maybe not privileged at all.

Dear child of God, the word of God says, "But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth." (1 John 3:17-18) Are you having 'world goods', do you see someone in need, so do not close your heart, nor do not love only in words but act upon it, and that's the need of the hour. God does not expect to move mountains (good if you can) but Christ only nudges us with the phrase "whatever" according to your capacity and your heart's desire, just do it. Will continue...

PRAY: Lord what is it that you want me to do? Please help me I pray, and accomplish it through me. AMEN

Lenten Devotion Day #35

Dear friends

As we conclude on the topic of volunteering, it is certainly a valuable practice to adhere not only during lent, but in times like this, when the community needs us. We are so blessed and when we volunteer, it is giving ourselves in situations where our heart lies. The scriptures time and again stress the point of helping in line with "doing good". This one theme apostle Paul constantly uses in his writings and connects it with spirituality. Spiritual growth is our focus during the lent and doing good is being spiritual.

Paul says "our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives (Titus 3:14) and then he urges us by saying "let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Galatians (6:9). One more time he adds "never tire of doing what is good (2Thessalonians 3:13). You see all these verses stress about "doing good" which is to continue in volunteering and in continuing to do so without any returns.

But there are two returns according to bible. 1. The returns are eternal and 2. building our character. As we do more and more good, our nature transforms into a personality of Christ. A selfless service that does not think about self but for others. "Don't be concerned only about your own interests, but also be concerned about the interest of others" (Philippians 2:4). So dear child of God, volunteering and helping others creates in us a spiritual endeavor that strengthens our character and our 'doing good' will become a habit. Once it is a habit we will not tire out, rather would enjoying doing it. Find time, places and situations to volunteer, and whatever you do, work heartily, as for the LORD and not for men. (Col 3:23)

PRAY: Lord there are many opportunities, give me a heart to volunteer and to do it heartily. AMEN

Lenten Devotion Day #34

Volunteering is a noble, selfless, and a sacrificial act. Very few people choose to serve without any returns. Some call 'serving' with an ulterior satisfaction of pride, position or power. The word of God says "God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for His name in serving..." Hebrews 6:10 Volunteering is love shown in service without any ulterior motives. Son of Man came to serve and He is the perfect example and certainly a standard to follow, maybe we may not be able to reach that level.

At times volunteering is helping others who cannot help themselves. Isaiah says "feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon (58:10) When we volunteer we become a beacon of light to the dark world. There are 'troubled' people all around you and God wants us to help those with love and service. When we get paid for our services it nullifies the love and translates it into job.

Jesus said "In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." (Mathew 5:16) Volunteering is light shining in those dark places, volunteer to do 'good works' only, so that they who see - would not only give glory to God but it would become an contagious act, even more powerful than the COVID-19. During this crisis, think about ways you can volunteer and serve one another in love, care and sacrificial service, so that the Father who sees from above will richly reward you. How can your light shine in those dark moments? God can certainly use you if you are available.

Pray: Lord help me to shine in those places where you want me to and without any expectation in return. AMEN

Lenten Devotion Day #33

Dear Friends

I can't find a powerful verse than this told by Jesus "freely you have received, freely give" (Mathew 10:8) what we have received freely and what are we expected to give freely? The context is Jesus giving instruction to HIS disciples about the ministry. There are five things that precedes this statement. 1. Preach _______ 2. Heal________, 3. Raise______, 4. Cleanse________, and 5. Drive_________. If I do not qualify and ask you to fill in those blanks what would you want to add? Jesus qualifies them very specifically, proclaim THIS message "the kingdom of heaven has come near", heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, and drive out demons.

Dear child of God in a time like this - you and I have to freely give these necessities of life here and beyond. We hear messages or maybe a doubt has arisen in our own minds, has the world come to an end, is the second coming of Jesus imminent? In Italy currency notes are strewn all over the roads and people feel money is just paper it cannot buy life.

Volunteer does not expect anything in return, even love; Volunteers just give - are we willing to give hope to the lost, are we willing to warn the sinner to repent and believe the gospel, are we willing to heal the broken heart, are we willing to pick the person down in the dungeon and raise him or her to a life eternal in Christ Jesus, are we willing to cleanse or clean the filth of our neighbor, or in the streets or in the community, or anywhere God calls us and above all are we willing to drive out the demons that are tormenting our loved ones or even our enemies? Demons of addiction, demons of pornography, demons of gluttony, demons of hoarding, demons of money, demons of hatred, jealously, and the list goes on. In all these are we willing to volunteer to do it? This can come only out of love and love of God and people would make you and I volunteer in the kingdom and for the kingdom of God.

Pray: Dear God help me understand "freely" in the complete sense and volunteer to freely give what I have freely received, because Christ Jesus paid the price. AMEN
