Editorial

By Sherly Isaac

Mother Teresa was born in Macedonia. At the age of twelve she felt the strong call of God to become a missionary and to spread the love of Jesus Christ. After her training she was sent to Calcutta, India where she worked as a teacher in a convent school. But her heart was for the poor, the sick and the helpless people. Finally she took permission from her supervisor to leave the school job and to take up the job of helping the poorest of poor of the society. She started working among those who were sick, wounded and those who were in the streets dying as there was no one to care for them. She literally walked in every street of Calcutta, she literally picked them from the streets and brought them in, gave them shelter, wiped their wounds with her own hands and provided care and medicine for them.

A woman who was afraid of even a small mice as a child, left her home to serve a strange nation and a strange people. She stood fearless in the midst of trials. Her work was to search for the poor, the sick and the needy and to provide necessary help.

2000 years ago the King of kings and Lord of lords left His heavenly abode and came down to search and to seek the lost, poor, sick and needy in order to save them. He is none other than Jesus who came in this world seeking the lost and suffering humanity because of sin. He said in Mat 18:11, "For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost." Each and every one of us is lost because of our sin. Our first parents sinned and came short of the glory of God. They lost their righteousness and sin came in this world. But Jesus came to save us from our sins. He came searching for those who are spiritually blind, spiritually poor, spiritually naked, miserable and wretched. Jesus said in Rev 3:17-18, "Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing'; and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked; I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see."

Yes, Jesus gave His life for the poor, naked, blind, miserable, and the wretched whom no one cared about. Today we can get wealth that this world cannot give, eyesight for our eyes, and white garments of righteousness just by accepting Him in our lives. If you want this indescribable wealth, white garments of righteousness and eye salve, come to Jesus and give your life to Him. Please pray this prayer with me:

Lord Jesus I am a sinner and I am lost. Please save me from all my sins and make me whole. Cleanse me with your precious blood. Today I invite you in my heart to become my Lord and Savior. Thank you for hearing my prayer and giving me the right to become a child of God. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen.

Fear not, for I am with you!

By Sherly Isaac

Isa 41:10, "Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."

Back in India there were few cats in our house. Once a stray cat came to our backyard and gave birth to three kittens. Those kittens were awesomely beautiful with colors ranging from light golden to white. At that time there was the outbreak of plague and so no one allowed me to let those kittens come in our home. But when they grew up a little, very often they came to our house and had lunch and dinner with our cats.

One afternoon we had our lunch and one of the kittens just went out after eating. It may be hardly half an hour I heard some commotion. I ran out of my room to see what was happening. I saw the small kitten was lying on one of the steps of our staircase. She was hardly breathing, and her eyes were closed and she was dying. I just could not believe how this little kitten could become so sick in this short period of time? I and my sister stood there and I called her. Hearing my voice, her whole body jerked. With great difficulty she tried to lift her head, opened her eyes and looked at me and in her very feeble voice she meowed. I could see great pain in her face yet when she heard my voice a great sense of relaxation came upon her as if everything will be going to be all right. Just our presence and voice made that little kitten comfortable and relaxed.

In my editorial I wrote about mother Teresa who took care of dying people who were left in the streets to die because there was no one to care for them. How comfortable and how thankful they might have felt when they found out that there was someone to show love and care for.

The same thing happens if God is with us. God says in Isa 41:10, "Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." If God is with you, He will strengthen you, He will help you, He will uphold you and He will not allow you to fall when you go through problems and trials. He will not leave you nor forsake you. He will make you to walk through those trials victoriously. Just His presence and just His voice will make you comfortable. There is no other thing in this world which could give you peace in the midst of storm except God only. Jesus said to His disciples in John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

Is God with every person? Bible tells us in Isa 43:1 But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine." Notice the words "redeemed you" and "you are Mine". If you are redeemed by the blood of Jesus, if you are forgiven of your sins, you are His property, you are His child and He will take care of you. He will be with you and He will give you peace, He will make you to relax in His mighty arms.

If you are not yet His child, come to Jesus and give your heart to Him. He will redeem you from all your sins. He gave His precious life for you so that you could enjoy all the blessings He wants to give, His peace, His calmness, His joy, His salvation, His holiness and eternal life.

Today you may be having loads of worries in your life. You may be thinking, "who will take care of me?" You may be thinking, "what is my future?" You may be thinking, "is there any hope for me?" Yes there is. Jesus Christ is your hope and your future. If you give your life to Him, He will take care of you. If you are sick and suffering, He can heal you and deliver you from all your pains. Just look to Him.
