Christmas Devotions

Dec 2 – You have found favor with God.

December 1, 2016

Luke 1:26-38; Isaiah 7:14

If Mary could have updated her tweeter status that night, she would have said:
“Has anyone given birth to a child whose name is salvation?”
“Did you guys hear anyone who has a baby while she is a virgin?!”
“I heard an angel talking… is he in town? did that happen to anyone else?”
“Elizabeth is 6th month pregnant if anyone is interested…i didn’t know.”
“I really love Joseph, but oh I love God more!”
“Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word (Luke 1:38)”

Finding favor with someone can be such a sweet thing. I remember my high school math teacher, who was very kind to me. She was a good person in general, but I think I found her favor because I was new to the country, I had a hard time speaking English and also I worked very hard. Students in the class were a bit jealous of me and some were very understanding when I received 5 minutes extra time during exams. Continue Reading…

Dec 1: The Light Shines in the Darkness.

November 30, 2016

I will be sharing my own short devotions from the 25 Days Christmas Devotional Readings here. I pray that this will make my Christmas more meaningful, and whosoever reading the devotions to experience the joy of Christ. Every year, I just waited for the day of December, but let me store up the Word in my heart until then to fill myself with the Spirit who began the first Christmas. This will help me be committed to read and also to write. Join me!c046db5cd574b125b858a7e68bff9427-0 c046db5cd574b125b858a7e68bff9427-1

John 1:1-18; Galatians 4:4-5; Deuteronomy 18:15-18

Gal. 4:4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

I have heard of parents who do adoptions. They have to travel far to a different country to discuss the adoption agreement that they may see the child and so that they may bring him/her home. It is amazing what Jesus Christ did for us. He came far; from the pure to the impure, from perfect to the imperfect, from the everlasting to death on the cross. Not just that we may go home with Him, but also that we may see and know our true God (John 1:18). Praise be to Him. Continue Reading…

What would be our greatest success?

October 26, 2016

Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.” – Westminster Catechism.

I have been reflecting on my ministry and my future, and it makes me wonder what I would call as the greatest achievement in my life. Yeah, I know it is a bit too early to think about life too seriously, but our deep reflection gives life its substance. Coming into ministry as a young student of life, I thought that the things that I would take to my death bed as my achievements would be to start revival in the youth, have great teaching series and being influential to the Chin youth. They sounded really good and they could be great motivations. After awhile, I realized that there is only one thing that is worth taking to my grave. Continue Reading…
