Dear Beloved in Christ,
Greetings to you all in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ. As we are entering the new month, let us thank God for all His blessings throughout the last month. Let us depend on God’s grace and blessings as we live each day.
When mother Teresa passed away in 1997, people marveled again at her example of humble service in Christ and to people’s great needs. She had spent 50 years ministering to the poor, sick, orphaned and dying for the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India. After extensive interviews with her, British journalist Malcolm Muggeridge remarked, “There is much talk today about discovering an identity, as though it were something to be looked for, like a winning number in a lottery, then, once found, to be hoarded and treasured. Actually the more it is spent the richer it becomes. So, with Mother Teresa, in effacing herself she becomes herself. I never met anyone more memorable.”
I suspect that many of us may be confused of what will happen if we follow Jesus. “If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whoever desires to save his life will loose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it” (Luke 9: 23 – 24).
Our savior reminded His followers that He came to give us His life in abundance (John 10:10 ). We are called to lose our lives for Christ, and in so doing, discover the fullness of life in Him. As we lose our lives for Christ, we find fullness of life in Him. Rev. Dr. Jacob Chacko and his family is expected to be in Kuwait Soon. Let us hope and pray that they have a safe and comfortable journey to Kuwait.
Summer holidays are approaching. I wish a safe and happy journey as well as holidays to all those who are travelling. Let us make every new day blessed and happy along the path of peace.
May the Almighty God bless you all
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Johnson Alexander
