Go another way

Mathew 2:12”And having been warned by God in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way.”

Our Christmas celebrations on December 23 was a great success, click CHRISTMAS PROGRAM to view some photos of our combined Christmas celebrations with our Church and Abide School students.

I remember something that happened several years ago when I worked for a multinational bank, many of the bank staff were taking the wrong route to the office which was very short and I followed suite too in my scooter, but one fine day the traffic inspector caught many people red handed and were warned to take the right route, most of my staff just zoomed past the inspector in jet speed while I stood there helplessly.  The inspector told me, ‘you are using the wrong route madam, from tomorrow take the right route even if it may be long.’  The next day, people cared two hoots of what happened the previous day, they went as usual the wrong way and saved petrol but I like a joker took a round-about-route and came to office, the people at office guffawed at me and said,’Bala, you are crazy.’ The world may laugh at you for doing the right thing; however, let us ask like David ‘Lord, teach me to follow your path and please you.’ (Psalm 25:4, Psalm 27:11)Avoid the evil way and go another way to reach your destiny! Amen.

This Christmas I would like to speak about changed lives rather than status-quo rotten life, no fun in drinking beer and dancing with the devils and calling it ‘Christmas celebrations’, let us strive hard to worship Jesus the proper way.  We concentrate way too much on changing the curtains, sofa upholstery, kitchen set up and bed room decorations on Christmas rather than setting our soul right for Christmas, anybody listening to me? Go another way……

The Bible says that the wise men were warned  by God in a dream not to return to Herod, so they obeyed God and went another way. Now let us get deeper into this: why should the wise men obey the words of God which was given to them in a dream? Their outlook changed after they visited Jesus!  Somebody should listen to this! Jesus is not a baby, remember that, just being in His presence is enough to drive out demons and bring about massive changes in our life, it did for me though.  After my encounter with Jesus, I went another way: I threw away all secular books that contradicted the Word of God, I broke movie video CDs, I deleted everything that stood as a wall between me and God, my dressing changed, my eating habits changed….and much, much more…. You cannot go the same wrong way after meeting Jesus in your life!

Have a blessed Christmas!
