What are you sad for?

Nehemiah 2:2    “So the king said to me, "Why is your face sad though you are not sick? This is nothing but sadness of heart." Then I was very much afraid.”

Today people are sad because they: are not married, did not get a promotion, did not get increment, no kids, no money, no friends, no hair, no color, sickness, have rebellious kids and lot more stuff  but here in the above scripture we read of Nehemiah who was sad because “the wall of Jerusalem was broken down and its gates were burned with fire."  The Bible says that he sat down and wept and mourned for days; and he was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.” (Nehemiah 1:4) Do we have anyone out there who has burden for the lost souls or the people who are drunk, addicted and in deep sin?

We as believers are kept in the midst of this dark period of COVID 19 and a lot more chaos, violence and uncertainty not to relax in the coach and enjoy life but to weep and pray for this world.  Yesterday I received a prayer request from our church member whose father had tested positive for COVID and he was worried about his baby daughter who stayed close to his grandfather, the doctors have said that she needs to be tested too, imagine the anxiety. The believers who know the power of Jesus are the only hope for this world, are you listening?  David Livingston (1813-73) was a Scottish missionary and medical doctor who went to Africa to spread the Gospel of Jesus, he became the first European to cross the African continent. While there he was attacked by a lion which crushed his arm but David Livingston did not return home to England because the city was full of lions but instead he stayed there and ministered to the poor Africans, such should be your burden for your friends, relatives and colleagues. 

Right from the time of lockdown this March, 2020, I have been facing challenges with my teeth and the gums area too, the area which is being used to preach the Gospel was under tremendous pain, I am talking about my mouth area.  Already I had done a root canal treatment for one tooth (very painful  treatment), treated my gums area for infection but still I was visiting the dentist regularly, during this period, I did not miss my preaching assignments, we have online service daily at 6 pm from Wednesday to Saturday and I was regularly preaching.  Now I had done another root canal treatment, which was agonizing for another tooth as well, during my visit to the doctor, I asked him, ‘can you spare two minutes for me?’ he replied’ yes’, immediately I shared my miraculous healing testimony with him and glorified Jesus.  I saw this period of pain in my life to share JESUS with a pagan doctor, his soul is more precious that my pain…..
