And he (Jesus) said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19)
Greetings to you all in the matchless name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! It is always a matter of joy to share what God has done in our lives and ministry.
Let me inform all our prayer partners and well wishers that the continuing students of our Mission India Theological Seminary have returned to campus after their vacation. At the same time, new students from various parts of India have devoted themselves to study the Word of God. Our seminary staff and faculty are full of energy and enthusiasm as the new academic year has begun. All Mission India Bible colleges/centers throughout India and South Asia are also resuming back to enroll new candidates to be trained for ministry. As they have dedicated their lives for ministerial training, it gives us immense responsibility to nourish, equip and empower them for the great commission.
Interestingly in the Bible, our Lord Jesus calls out His first disciples to train them to be fishers of men. When the disciples lived with Jesus, it was a great time of learning from the great Rabbai who explained and simplified the truths of the scripture to them and practically fulfilled it. During the short span of training, the disciples were filled with love and compassion that their saviour had modelled before them. They witnessed the supernatural provisions of God for them. Those few elected disciples from diverse backgrounds greatly imparted the Great commission through the proclamation and praxis of the gospel.
I have many testimonies to share of our seminary graduates who experienced God’s love, enigmatic provisions and guidance being at seminary. Now, they are touching the broken hearts of people with the love and compassion of God in different communities. I thank God for the faculty and staff of Mission India who have set their lives as role model for them. My special appreciations for my brothers and sisters who have sacrificially sown the seed that has turned to be the miraculous provision for the seminary students. I strongly believe that God is at work and will continue to sustain it. You can take part in blessing my brothers and sisters who have decided to serve God. May God sustain all of us!
Quote of the Day: “I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusement, etc., is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little. If our giving does not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say it is too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot because our commitment to giving excludes them.” (C.S Lewis)
Prayer of the Day: Lord! Meet all our needs according to your heavenly riches and glory”
