Became One Among Us... to show us the way

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us...
[John 1:14]

Long back I had heard a story of a boy and his friends and this boy was very passionate about these friend. We would be wondering what is so special about this friend. You will understand when you will know that these friends were ANTS. Yes ants were his friends. He had no other friends apart from these ants, also he never played any other games apart from keeping watch on these ants when ever he is free. As soon as he come from school he would go to his behind his house where these ants stayed. One interesting thing he noticed in these ants were that they use to always go in line, and he would map in to the people who would go at all ways never in a line. These ants use to help each other, doesn't matter what they know each other they were all together. One day the boy saw that these ants were moving to a big pool of water. He realized that the ants (his friends) will soon go and die.He wanted to save them but did not knew how he can save them. He started shouting, which did not work. 

Who knows God?

This is a very important question we should ask to ourselves. Who knows God? 

Because if you know who knows God, then its easy to get to that person and him to introduce you to God, and start building a relationship. We had seen this in our daily life also, when we want to approach a person, with whom we would need some favor. If that person is not know to us we find a person close to us who knows him, and then approach him and ask him to get us to the main person whose help we actually require. Once we are introduced to this person. Next time probably someone close to you may approach you to have them introduced to this main person with whom you had recently started building the relationship.

Our christian life is a similar scenario where we have ourselves and God.

Who knows me completely?

I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me..
[John 10:14]

I know that there would had been a situation in life when we would have asked this question to ourselves... Who knows me? Who knows me, this is a important question for us, because of the way we link us to this world and people who stay around us. We value us by the people who knows us. If i have more people knowing me we feel proud.

In this world, we feel we have an existence if we have a value in others eyes. We usually map ourselves and our value based on what others think and talk about us, or who all knows and loves us. There is nothing wrong in this attitude, if we take our life as our life and other people around us as a valuable asset whose views and response can change our attitude. We had been born in this attitude from birth. To a large extent what we see around us make us how we think and act now. During all these times we tend to loose our actual and genuine value, which has to be not seen from the eyes of people around us or our friends, or our families, but from the eyes of the one who had created us.

Law or Love.. Which one to Choose?

You search and investigate and pore over the Scriptures diligently, because you suppose and trust that you have eternal life through them. And these [very Scriptures] testify about Me! And still you are not willing [but refuse] to come to Me, so that you might have life.
[John 5:39-40]

Bible as a book has 2 main divisions, which are the Old Testament and the New Testament. New Testament is with respect to Jesus, his arrival, his mission and the completion of his purpose. Additionally in this section we can also see the mission that Jesus  had is been communicated to the world through his disciples. One of the main thing he taught was LOVE. Jesus Christ coming to this world to save us was because of the LOVE that our Father God had for us, and this is visible in the following very well know bible verse.
