SUNDAY SCRIPTURE SENT BY GHUNA KUMAR FOR GOSPEL FRIENDS P.BOX 2202 MANDAVELI CHENNAI – 28 SOUTH INDIA
DEVOTION 2 – THE HOLINESS OF GOD
GOD’S HOLINESS IS WHOLESOME
God's holiness is pure both intensively and extensively. Habakkuk 1:3 says that God's Holiness is too powerful and He cannot tolerate wrong doing. God is perfect and His holiness is unblemished. According to 1 john 1:5 there is absolutely no darkness in God. James tells us that God is not tempted by evil and He Himself does not tempt anyone. His mind is so pure that there can be no flaw in His understanding, no deviation in His will and His love is totally absolute. Since He is perfectly Holy, there is total abhorrence towards falsehood and evil. Our God is explained as "consuming fire" (Hebrew 12:29) and this mystery strikes us today to cause us tremble before the Holy and Pure God.
Thought for the day : God is Pure and He expects purity in everything.
PRAYER : Dear Lord, unless you purify me I can never be pure. Amen
Friends we are burdened and saddened by what is happening in Nepal. Nepal is rocked by continuous earthquakes. A growing sense of despair spread through Kathmandu on Sunday as the devastated Nepali capital was convulsed by aftershocks that sent residents screaming into the streets, where they were pelted by heavy rain.
We got 25 students from Nepal studying on our campus. Some of them lost total communication with their parents and kith and kin. They need your prayers. Through our pastors namely Damar, Samuel and Anil we are engaged in doing some relief work. Anjana says that her house was partly damaged. If the Lord leads to help in this relief work you may send contributions for this cause. I have enclosed some of the pictures of the damages in Nepal particularly in Kathmandu. Over 2600 people died in Nepal and 50 died in Bihar. Over 50,000 people have been injured. The population of Nepal is around 29 million. Pray and Involve.
OTHER PRAYER AND PRAISE POINTS
Praise God for the graduations of Bible College and Para medical school went on well.
VBS is starting today and pray for the suitable weather. The forecast of weather is quite threatening. Even yesterday we were all on pins. Praise God though it rained heavily in nearby places we got only some.
The spiritual life conference was great and the response from students was encouraging.
Please pray for our needs of Rs.7,50,000 for the VBS expenses. I AM YET TO HEAR GOOD NEWS ON THIS REQUEST.
If God leads you to involve in the relief work in Nepal please let us know.
