2017 August NEWSLETTER
Message from our vicar
Grow In Relationship  
    
Beloved in Christ,

When we look at Eden, Adam and Eve enjoy the relationship with God for a short period of time. They walked with God in perfection and freely communicated with Him. They were without fear, sin, sickness, evil or distraction. Adam and Eve had the dominion power and authority over all of God’s creation. There was a divine order .But when Adam and Eve disobeyed God, the relationship once enjoyed was lost .They became guilty of sin .Sin brought curse to the world and caused physical death to humankind. 

It is our duty to keep relationship with God and human being. We have to love God and love our neighbor. For this God gave Ten Commandments through Moses to the people of Israel .The first four commandments establishes man’s relationship with God while the last six deals with human relationships .In John 14:1517 Jesus says “If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever the Spirit of truth.”
 
Jonathan and David are an example of loving and caring relationship. True friends are one in spirit. Friends are there in times of trouble .In 1 Samuel 18:1 it is written “The soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.” Jonathan was the prince of Israel and David was his 
Father’s worst enemy.  Jonathan not only saved his friend but encouraged him to ascend in the throne. 
 
In Mathew 5:44-45 “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be the children of your father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” On the cross Jesus prayed for those who crucified him. If we have the right relationship with God we will have right relationship with others. In earlier Christian community there was deep and innocent relationship. All people loved one another and shared everything. They were united by the power of the Holy Spirit. Acts 4:32-37 “those who believed were of one heart and one soul …..they had all things in common.” Sincere relationship brings forth joy and peace in our lives. It is sad that selfish desires and egoistic attitudes spoil human relationships .In Romans 12:15 Paul tells to rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep.

In Mathew 22:37-38 “Love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and the greatest commandment. And the second is love your neighbor as yourself. “God showed his love for us by sending his only Son to die for us. We love him because He first loved us .Our relationship with God must be characterized by love.

Let us praise God for leading us wonderfully for 30 years under the Wings of Almighty. This is a time for evaluation, correction, building up of relations and witnessing Christ. 

“Let your lights shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven” Mathew 5:16.

May God bless us all.
