Watch Your "Life" Closely

Watch Your "Life" Closely (1st Timothy 4:16). The Bible exhorts all born again believers to maintain an ethical life & be reflectors of the light of the Gospel through Jesus Christ. In 2 Corinthians 2:14-16, Apostle Paul says that God “through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the ones who are perishing we are the aroma of death leading to death, and among those who are saved we are the aroma of life leading to life”. Since God has placed every born-again child of God with so great a responsibility, it is essential that we, as His children, be willing and committed to put into practice our Christian faith on every level of human intervention.
The Parable of the Good Samaritan is one of the unique parables narrated by the Lord Jesus Christ as it is found only in the Gospel of Luke in chapter 10:30-37, and it conveys the principle of high morality in the salvation that has been provided to the fallen humankind. The reason for Jesus to expound this parable was to answer a test question posed to him by a lawyer, which was: “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (Luke 10:25). Jesus, knowing that this was a learned lawyer who posed this question, replies in turn with two questions for the lawyer to answer: “What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?” (Luke 10:26).
This article has been crafted from the initial segment of the famous discourse of Jesus entitled as “The Sermon on the Mount”, and concentrates on Mathew 5:3-16. This article provides "10 Golden Rules to follow" that every child of God show adhere to in order to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Being a parent of three girls (two of them being teenagers now) and living in a very promiscuous and liberal US society, we find that it is a real challenge to give a proper ‘education’ to our children. Like so many other Indian parents who have immigrated to the United States hoping to provide a better ‘education’ to our children, my wife Nissy and I have been dismayed to find ourselves battling a tidal wave of cultural and social differences in the likes that we have never seen before.
