SUNDAY SCRIPTURE – 21 DEC 2014  SENT BY GHUNA KUMAR FOR GOSPEL FRIENDS  P BOX 2202, MANDAVELI, CHENNAI-28 INDIA

 

“ God was manifest in the flesh. ”  I Timo 3:16

 

Wish you all a merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

I have been hectically going around celebrating Christmas with our folks all over India and thus the delay in sending this email.

 

Let me share with you the outlines of the message I shared on this Christmas  morning – 4 am

 

Jesus has over 215 names in the Bible. But I want to pick up just three important names pertaining to Christmas season.

 

  1. JESUS – The one who saves us from sin.  He is my Saviour. An animal had to be killed in order to cover the shame of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden.  The High Priest had to go into the Holy of Holies to take the blood once a year to plead for the forgiveness of the sins of the people. As a High Priest Jesus died on the cross to bring forgiveness from sins. So He came into the world to fulfill the office of the priesthood. Praise God for we do not need any more a high priest for Jesus is my Saviour from sin, sickness and sorrow.  IS HE MY SAVIOUR?

 

  1. CHRIST – Christ means the anointed or Messiah or King.  The office of the king was given in the Old Testament to rule His people. Jesus came into the world to fulfill the office of the king.  Christ becomes the ruler of our lives, families and the country.  Let us not forget that even in the midst of the worst or the best government, God reigns. Praise God. IS HE MY RULER?

 

  1. EMMANUEL – This means God with us. In the history of the Old Testament the prophets played a great role.  They often were consulted by kings and by even common people. They made the presence of God felt in many ways.   Kings and people were warned and guided by prophets. Jesus came into the world to fulfill the office of the prophets. Because Emmanuel means God with us guiding and directing our lives. DOES HE DWELL IN ME?

 

Let me close here with wishes for a MEANINGFUL CHRISTMAS AND A SPIRIT FILLED NEW YEAR. AMEN.

 

PRAISE & PRAYER

 

Hallelujah for we had Christmas celebrations in seven places. We covered over 5000 people.  The travelling was hectic but God gave mercies.

 

Big thanks to all those who gave for the cause of gifting new garments and a banquet to all these needy ones.  We had a great baptism service in Andhra.

 

Thank God for the roof of the Boy’s dorm is done. We hope to get the building completed by the end of Feb or in the beginning of March.

 

When we had the big celebration at Mount Zion on the 19th evening we were threatened by rain but praise God for we had only little bit of drizzling.

I want you to pray for the construction of a big pavilion with galvanized sheet which will be used for VBS, conventions, celebrations and youth meetings. Your year end contributions could be designated for this purpose. The cost may come around $ 30,000 for the construction of roof without walls

 

Pray for one of the church buildings in Thirutani needs the roof for they are worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ  in the building without roof. Recently I did solemnize a marriage in that church building without roof. Pray and give for the cost will be about 250,000 rupees which is  $4166.

 

LET ME REMIND YOU OF OUR NEEDS FOR YOU TO CONSIDER THROUGH YOUR YEAR END GIVING.

 

1.    School requires four class rooms each costing $ 8,000 (Rs. 48,00,000) The name of the contributor or any memorial name will be inscribed in each class room.   

2.  Nursing school requires 5 more rooms in the upstairs each costing $8000 or Rs. 4,80,000)

3.  VBS Pavilion to seat 5000 children with galvanized roof. This will cost around $30,000 (Rs.18,00,000) This will protect us from rain. This pavilion will be used for not only for VBS but also other conferences and meetings.

4.  Our monthly needs is around $24000 Rs.14,40,000/- We need monthly or yearly givers. I am praying for 300 Pillars of Gospel Friends mission in India. Please choose to be one of the pillars. Let me know by emailing to ghunarc@gmail.com.  We pray for the pillars every day. God bless you.

 

Praise God for I heard yesterday that a church in Brandon MS will be contributing $500 every month. Please continue to pray and God will do greater things.

God bless you - Ghuna
