Message from our vicar
Grow in Love

Beloved in Christ,

‘’Not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his son to be the propitiation for our sins’’ – 1 John.4:10

One of the most basic needs of man is to be loved. God has met this need in Christ. As disciples of Jesus we are chosen for love.
‘’For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whose so ever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.’’ – John.3:16

The cross is God’s demonstration of love. He made a bridge across the gulf of sin that separated us from Him.

1) Love - a supreme place in Jesus’ teachings.
‘’A new commandment I give you that you love one another as I have loved you.’’ – John.13:34,35‘’I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you.’’-Mathew.5:44 Jesus asks us that we should not return hatred for hatred or hostility for hostility. Great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr were influenced by Jesus’ teachings. They reawakened Christians that non-violence is the norm of the Christian response to persecution and oppression. Jesus remains the greatest teacher and example of love, for even when He was put to a shameful, public execution on the cross, He was able to say, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34).

2) Love - a supreme place in Jesus’ action.
Jesus faced many ‘untouchables’ in his day, they needed his love. Jesus ministered to Samaritan woman. He honored every Samaritan in his parable of ‘The Good Samaritan’. He had fellowship with tax collectors and sinners. Jesus saw each person valuable and full of potential. Finally he gave his life on the cross for sinners. He practiced what he preached. The Australian missionary, Graham Staines who was burnt to death along with his two sons Philip (aged 9) and Timothy (aged 7) who had been working in Orissa among the tribal poor and especially with leprosy patients in Orissa, India in January 1999. His wife Gladys Staines says: “I’ve no hatred for anyone. I’ve no anger. But it is my desire and hope that they would repent and would be reformed’’. This is an example of Jesus’ forgiving love.

After Mother Teresa received the Nobel prize, someone asked her ‘’How can we solve the World’s problems?. She replied ‘’Go home and love one another’’. It is only love which can save the World from destruction. Love shall be the only thing that is eternal. St. Paul wrote ‘’Faith, hope and love abide but the greatest of these is love.

’’ May God who created and called us for a purpose, and planted His love within our hearts, help us to bear fruits worthy of His calling.

May God bless us all.
With love and prayers,

Rev. Sajit Thomas John
Vicar
