Come to Jesus and you will be satisfied

John 6:35,36 - And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.


It is very sad that many of the Christians are becoming victim to lies and deceit. Since they do not dedicatedly spend time studying the Word and having relationship with God, wolfs come in sheep clothing and snatch them away.

We will always have some or the other discrepancy in understanding the Word of God and that should not be an issue between us. But the Gospel of Jesus should be unadulterated in us. Any person tampering or modifying the Gospel should not be tolerated, entertained and be kept at arm's length.

What is the Gospel of Jesus Christ?


The Son of God came as a human Jesus. He became a sacrifice for us on the crucifix. Jesus Christ, by His sacrifice saved us and cleansed us of our sins and brought us from darkness to light. He died and resurrected and is seated on the right hand of the Father. He sent us His Holy Spirit the Spirit of Truth, who dwells is us and guides us.

Only when we believe in Him and get baptized in Him do we receive the blessings of Abraham in our lives and are saved.


Other than this, all other things we will keep learning more and more as the Lord teaches us and leads us. But there are groups like Jehovah's Witness, End time Ministries, Unitarian Christians etc. who play with the Gospel and like wolfs devour the sheep of Lord Jesus Christ.

I would plead each and every one of you to please do not take the Word of God for granted, keep learning and meditating on it every day so that you do not fall suddenly. Soon there will be times when many will fall due to lies and myths.


[ Prayer Starter ]

Father God, You are merciful God. Protect us and keep us away from temptation and from the devourer. Give us your heavenly Manna that we may not go hungry and thirsty. Help us discern the wolves from your messengers...

We ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[ Reference Scripture ]

2 Corinthians 11:2-4 [RSV]
2 I feel a divine jealousy for you, for I betrothed you to Christ to present you as a pure bride to her one husband.
3 But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
4 For if some one comes and preaches another Jesus than the one we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you submit to it readily enough.

2 Timothy 4:3
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

1 Corinthians 8:11-13
11 And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died?
12 But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.
13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.

The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
