Greetings to you all in the mighty name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Praising God Almighty for His manifold blessings in our lives. We came into this world with certain abilities, and when God saved us, He gave us gifts and the grace to exercise those gifts to help others, to build our own lives and to glorify His name. But I should say one of the greatest tragedies in life is wasted opportunity – not making the most of what God has given us.
God blesses us to make us a blessing. He planted the people of Israel like a vine in the land they might, by their life and testimony, bear spiritual fruit, letting the gentile nations know about the true and living God. He gave them an opportunity to show the other nations what He could do for those who would trust and obey Him. Instead, the vine became like all the other vines. The Israelites compromised and sinned. So God had to cut down His vine and discipline His people.
Remember, God has planted you where you are that you might be a blessing. He wants you to take deep root. He wants you to bear rich fruit. And if you will draw upon His spiritual power, He will enable you to be a blessing. Bloom where you are planted and bear fruit to the glory of God and the enrichment of others.
God has been so gracious to us to complete our project and enabled us for the dedication of our Parsonage. I appreciate the hard work and dedication by the committee members and office bearers of 2017. Best wishes and prayers for the newly elected committee members and office bearers of 2018. I appreciate the initiative taken by the Youth Fellowship to organize a (brunch fellowship) meeting with college going students and it was a wonderful experience to meet with them. May God help you all to use your God-given talents to glorify God and be a blessing to others.
In the Lord’s Ministry,
Rev. George Varghese
