Useful tool

Extract of message preached at AIC camp held in Hyderabad this May:

2 Chronicles 2:2 “So Solomon assigned 70,000 men to carry loads and 80,000 men to quarry stone in the mountains and 3,600 to supervise them.”  

Solomon after he received wisdom, knowledge, riches, wealth and honor, he immediately gets down to work, to build a house for the name of the LORD and a royal palace for himself.  The gifts that we receive from God is not for self glory but it was given to glorify God, hence look what Solomon does: Solomon assigned “70,000 men to carry loads and 80,000 men to quarry stone in the mountains and 3,600 to supervise them.”  My eyes went to the 3600  men that he appointed as leaders to look after the other workers, did you see that?  The first job that Solomon did was to appoint workers, God helped him from all sides, though.  It was my passion to train people and watch them go and be a blessing for others.  I remember a young girl who came to work during her holidays in our school, she thought it would be fun but never realized that I was a tough boss.  She was made to come on time to school, be serious with her teaching, be strict with the students, keep her mobile away during working hours and many such things.  Besides,  she got to also hear the Gospel during the assembly and  came to know about Jesus, when she left, she said, “I got good training here while working in your school.” Glory to Jesus!

While I was reading the book of Philippians, I found every chapter from the book to be a treasure and it was kind of instruction manual for what I was preparing for the camp. Every word came bouncing out of the book and spoke to me, so I started reading the book every day during my Bible reading time, by May, I had completed the book around 75 times.  I was quoting Philippians even in my bed, such was my passion for the book.  The four chapters from the book of Philippians amazingly touched the people at the camp, and I hope to spread the same fire on you too.  My mom 79 years old now, attended the four days camp and sat through the entire day that included the afternoon session also in the midst of this hot summer in Hyderabad; it’s just not my mom alone there were other elderly people who attended the camp too but my mom was the senior most.  Whenever I looked at her sitting in the chair and attending the camp, my heart melted, on the last day she looked totally depleted and exhausted, we got worried but she recouped.  Now the story is not over, the next day she travelled 14 hours to go to her city, a couple of days later when I called her she said that she was getting ready to preach from the book of Philippians at the prayer cell conducted in her house.  Glory to Jesus!  Fire spreads!

Friend, it’s just not about living a mundane life without doing anything for God, be a useful tool in your life and impact people around you!
