Rejoice in The Lord 

Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will #rejoice in the Lord; I will take #joy in the God of my #salvation.

The Cross And Christianity

Christian life is practically a journey to Golgotha; and
Christianity without a cross is really not Christianity.

No Need

There would be no need for sermons if our lives were shining.. or words if we bore witness with our deeds

John Chrysostom


Early and Late Rain

Be glad, O children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given the early rain for your vindication; he has poured down for you abundant rain, the early and the latter rain, as before. The threshing floors shall be full of grain; the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.

Joel 2: 23 - 24 ESV

The Holy Spirit is early and late rain, which draws thirsty souls.. Sprout (shoot forth) self wilderness, trees blooming fruits, fig tree and vine give more fruits.. Holy Spirit is working as early rain which settled after the Lord risen and latter rain is required for maturing young crop to turn our internal self wilderness to delightful paradise
