MESSAGE FROM THE DELHI CENTER PRESIDENT
Dear Brethren, Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We are privileged to be the members of St. Thomas Evangelical Church of India, because our church stands for real faith based on 66 books of Bible. God has called us to worship the Lord, in truth and spirit, edifying each other by fellowship and Bible study-not only that, evangelizing the world is our responsibility. I am so happy to write in the first bulletin of the Delhi centre youths union which is publishing now. This bulletin may enrich and enlighten the young people to know the Lord more and more. The Lord wants people to help in His great work of saving the perishing and yes, in His even greater of preparing a glorious church. He is looking for people who understand the burden in His heart. The Lord needs people to share in every facet of the big job He has in hand. The group of twelve who responded to Jesus’ call when He was on earth, were with Him all the time-so they could partake in all His work [Mark 3:14,15]. Jesus commissioned the disciples to ‘make Christians’ of all nations. Paul, who joined the band of workers a little later, was told that he has been sent to the people to turn them from darkness and from the power of satan to God. This ministry is like the responsibility of a mother and father concerning their child - nourishing, instructing and bearing the people till they grow to the measure of the stature of Christ. Do you see how great the burden in God’s heart is? Will you take up His cause? You can be ‘any man’; the Lord is calling you to join His service. If you don’t take up the work the Lord will get someone else. It is no ordinary task - working together with God! It cannot be done with physical strength, intelligence, knowledge or skill of any kind, but we must have strong confidence in the might, wisdom and ability of God to lead you, equip you and fight your battle against evil powers. So, dear child of God don’t despise the great cause of God. You will regret it later, if you do like Esau, when it’s too late; enough of the old life, the old friends circle, the old plans and ambitions, the old cell phone and internet pleasures. If you share the burden of God’s heart, you need to share His mind too. Having been one with the Lord in heart and mind in everything, in eternity, you will be literally one with Him in the very place He is in, sharing His very glory, His very joy. Let’s pray that Lord help us to be a person after our own heart. I wish all success to the youth’s union as you are going to involve in many activities of the Church. May God bless you abundantly!! Yours in His service, Rev. Dr. V. V. George Delhi Centre President

It librates both the forgiver and the forgiven. Matthew 6:15 “But if you do not forgive men their sin. Esther. So we just need to offer our anger and hatred to God and let Him do the judging. a friend or a Church member. We all must have said a thousand time during our Sunday service or while praying— Matthew 6:12 “Forgive us our Debts. THOMAS EVANGELICAL CHURCH OF INDIA Page 5 FORGIVENESS BY SEBAN BABU When I was asked to write an article. But why is it so important to forgive? The Bible also tells us why we should forgive. The Holy Bible also teaches us to forgive others for their sins. your father will not forgive your sins”. Once we forgive someone all the hatred and bitterness we have for that person will vanish and this helps us to start our life afresh. But few people that I know personally or I have read about really helped me to understand what true forgiveness is. If something like this happens to our family we will surely not be able to forgive those who are responsible behind such an act. Stains and her daughter had no anger or hatred for those people. It could be someone within our family or from office. But is it the RIGHT Christian attitude? Is there something that cannot be forgiven? Well most of might say YES. it is possible for us to forgive others. As we have forgiveness in our life (Jesus died for our sins on the cross).com). He and his two sons were burnt alive for their faith in the Living God. it says that with GOD everything is possible. Jesus Christ Himself set an example for us when He died on the cross for our sin. “She cannot understand how they (the world) can’t understand why we have forgiven”. I thought what should I write about? So I pondered on what we really need in today’s world and that one thing that most of us youngsters lack is FORGIVENESS. Graham Stains. Everyone thought how they could forgive the wrong doers but the question that her daughter. We all sometimes in our life find it difficult to forgive someone for their act or action.

Let’s first understand what it means. as we also have forgiven our debtors”. But Mrs. As we all are sinners. It might be difficult but sooner or later we will realize that forgiveness brings healing in our life. But that’s not what Bible teaches us.

Importance of knowing God’s will • • • One will concentrate his or her effort and energy on what is important leading to greater effectiveness. excluding other human beings. When God created us He had certain things in His mind that He wanted us to achieve exclusively. “It is in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. The easiest way to discover the purpose of an invention is to ask its Creator. He had His eyes on us…part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone” Ephesians 1:11 (Message) Thus we may chose our career. So is the case with us humans. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up. for Him. Whenever man makes an invention he does so with the knowledge of what he wants from his creation. THOMAS EVANGELICAL CHURCH OF INDIA Page 6 “KNOWING GOD’S WILL FOR OUR LIFE” BY FEBIN MATHEW If we notice anything around us. Hence if we were to ask the question “what is the purpose of our life? We should rephrase it as “ what is God’s purpose in my life?” and the only place from where we can find this answer is from God Himself. hobbies but we don’t get to chose our purpose. We are not on earth to create a legacy for our self but for an eternal life in heaven that God has prepared for us. we can easily conclude that the thing has a purpose or it can be used in a certain manner to achieve certain objective.

Knowing God’s will prepare you for eternity. our Creator.

to be loved as to love.) These convey a selfless and basic love our Father in heaven. there should be a limited space for talking about ourselves and create more arena for speaking with passion about the concerns of very individual whom we come across. however. THOMAS EVANGELICAL CHURCH OF INDIA Page 7 DEAR LORD…. we are also bound to give back the same to His children. “Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. ”Then Job arose.ST. we realize that our prayers have stated reeking of egocentrism (our prayers center around. The question raised here is not just to ponder over the lack of substance in the prayer but also realize that a prayer need not be ornamented with superfluous but must understand that it is only passion and selflessness that will be heard by our Father in heaven. BY REENA ABHILASH JOSEPH DELHI CENTER BULLETIN . and even the prayer of the St. Where there is hatred. let me sow love. One of the finest examples of an ideal prayer is the Lord’s prayer (Mathew 6:10-14). my car). lacks the effort to bond with the Almighty as we put weights of a vicious circle of conditional love (Dear God I will light 100 candles for you if you give me a better job).” It is a high time. through prayer God expects us to drive beyond requisitions and summonses. Yet another perfect citation of a humble prayer is the Job’s prayer (Job 1:20-22. to be understood as to understand.

NIV) This is probably one of the most quoted verses of the Bible and no doubt it certainly is a front runner at deserving to be so. THOMAS EVANGELICAL CHURCH OF INDIA Page 8 “WHAT’S SO AMAZING ABOUT GRACE?” BY JUCIN LIJO JOHN But He said to me. What do you see? I see suicides on the rise because people feel a lack of something they can’t even name. hoped to gain the approval of other mere mortals (who can give us only approval and not GRACE) when all we had to do was look to Him who was always ready to grant us all three-approval. imagine a world that can’t comprehend the concept of grace because it does not exist there-a grace-less world. I see an increase in the number of broken people probably feeling set adrift in a stormtossed sea called life with no anchor and no destination. It is our protection when faced with the herculean task of handling the mammoth called life. do we ever take the time to ask ourselves what grace precisely means? What would happen to a grace-less world especially as we take His grace for granted more often than not? The Cambridge dictionary defines the word ‘grace’ as ‘approval or kindness or help of God’. He chose us to showcase His power.” (2 Corinthians 12: 9. However. your imagination works just fine! Now. for My power is made perfect in weakness. people feel ‘set adrift’ because they do not acknowledge grace or haven’t been made aware of it yet. kindness and help? Do you have a good imagination? Can you fly like the birds. isn’t it? Only the best writers and lyricists can pin down the multi-faceted aspect of grace and one of the most successful in that field is probably John Newton (1725-1807). isn’t it ironic that many of us crave approval and kindness but look to the wrong source to satisfy that craving? The Bible clearly states that all we have to do is to look to Him to satisfy that need for approval. Acknowledging God’s grace is an important aspect of our journey. How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed! DELHI CENTER BULLETIN . “My grace is sufficient for you. build castles in air. Furthermore. step out of that imaginary world.ST. However. in the real one. And grace my fears relieved. because of who He is and the grace which is a part of who He is. It’s obvious that ‘grace’ is a term that is associated only with God and it encompasses a lot more than just approval. This English slaveship captain turned poet and clergyman is well known today for this poem (now a hymn) of his: Amazing grace. A humbling thought. However. how sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me… 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear. haven’t we all at various points in our lives. However. Do you notice the similarities between that world and the real one? Both worlds appear the same except for one difference—in the imaginary world people didn’t know grace because it didn’t exist. swim like the dolphins and read the stars? Well. Now.

and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know. Neither their garments nor their footwear wore out.. goats and other livestock probably without number. but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD. •Limited food supply (probably just about enough for the first few weeks).. apart from the others who have time just to complain about the cruelty of life.. that’s only because we don’t hand over the reins of our life to God. Our God has never once told us that a Christian life would be devoid of problems and tribulations. So He humbled you. allowed you to hunger.to give me a heart-attack !!! Just imagine you being there with •Approximately 3 Million people . Your garments did not wear out on you. I'm not sure about the others but I've always wondered what I would have done if I were Moses. on an epic 40 year journey. We paint a horrid and catastrophic picture of the problems we face and sometimes wonder .does it make sense to even exist? We always worry about the way life unfolds before us and wonder what would happen if something were to go wrong. and led approximately 3 million odd Hebrews . The very thought of feeding them (let alone the other problems) gives me Goosebumps. But The LORD was faithful. whether you would keep His commandments or not. that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone. God provided. I guess. And yet..ST. then surely he could take care of us now because He is faithful and has not and will not change. to humble you and test you.. CSI. All we need to know is this – If our God could take care of 3 million odd people in the midst of trouble. We must understand that we face these trials and tribulations for the strengthening of our spirit. HYDERABAD It’s an age old saying . THOMAS EVANGELICAL CHURCH OF INDIA Page 10 HE IS FAITHFUL BY KEVIN VARGHESE JOSEPH.. we get so weary and worn out by the insignificant problems we face in life. Let's just go back 3400 years. I know for a fact that if I knew the sheer time-scale of the journey at hand with over 3 million mouths to feed and an unforgiving terrain deprived of food and water. The first few verses of Deuteronomy 8 : 1 – 4 says – And you shall remember that the LORD your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness. it would have been plenty enough .. Moses was told to lead the Hebrews out of Egypt into a land flowing with milk and honey. to know what was in your heart.Life is not a bed of roses. Moses took that leap in faith.including infants. mind and most importantly place our trust in Him..young and old. DELHI CENTER BULLETIN . And flocks of sheep. faithful and faithless alike. teenagers (Yikes !!! ) and the extremely old people. nor did your foot swell these forty years" The Bible says that our God provided for the Hebrews more that what they had ever imagined and fed them and took care of them.

To understand the reason why. “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him. We should have faith in Him that He is trying to build us into stronger persons. beyond all the dark doubts that we have in our minds that when we follow GOD. It is not about having the highest education qualification. The only way to know it and fulfill it is to follow Him. Many people who are not taking the path that God has planned for them to take have troubled times. When we have the blessings of Christ. acquiring the highest drawn salary. THOMAS EVANGELICAL CHURCH OF INDIA Page 11 WHY DOES IT HAPPEN TO ME? When Everything Goes Wrong BY PRINCY VARGHESE There always comes a time in everyone’s life when all things goes against what is planned and the most frequent question that comes into one persons mind is that WHY DOES IT HAPPEN TO ME? This is the most common one question and also the one whose answer is never straightforward. and the greater our problem greater will be HIS Help and Support. This does not mean that everything that happens to us will start off beautifully. God's promises that all things will work together for good when we love Him. God can turn it into something good not only for you but also for someone else. who have been called according to His purpose. It is all about how we follow our MASTER. Our Almighty GOD is “GOD OF LOVE AND PEACE” and hence if we are suffering HE is affected too. We don’t always know why things happen but whatever bad has happened in our life. But. HIS way is straight and pointed towards the light of Heaven. both good and bad. God’s thoughts and God’s ways are higher than our ways. But there is one thing that we need to know. And the good that all things are working together for is to conform us to the image of Christ. He works out all things for our good. to claim this promise we must be under God's protection willing to obey HIS authority. We always simply see one side of life. We always think that God is doing injustice to us but we never think or know about others who are experiencing similar situations. or whom we fall in love with.ST. The world's way is crooked and leads to darkness and destruction. we will be able to discern why things happen to us. Let us not confuse the two! Only when we are in God's light can we see the reason for our problems.” ROMANS 8:28 DELHI CENTER BULLETIN . but it will end up doing good to us. God has a plan for each of our lives. we must look from the view point of GOD. Every person has his or her own race to run.
