We have become so comfortable with the idea that God loves you who desires to have a personal relationship with you. We have become numb to the fact that God gave his one and only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to atone for our sin because of his unchangeable love for his creation. This magnanimous love, truth, and divine mystery no longer moves us now. The tragic … Continue reading Church is Anesthetized to the Message of God’s Love
This is a teaching on Good Friday that I did for the church few weeks ago. One of the youths in the church approached me and asked if I could do a short teaching on the topic and why we observe something such a bad day in the history to be something so good for us. The video is in Nepali though. Continue reading Good Friday: When Something Bad Turns to be Good
Jesus, the Messiah, the Deliver made a triumphal entry to Jerusalem riding on a donkey last Sunday. The King that was expected long ago to come and deliver his people from the oppression of Rome did not come as a warrior king but as a humble king who was going to bring peace. Today is the day, the same king voluntarily chose to wrap a … Continue reading A King’s Armor is a Towel!
I kept lagging behind in posting particularly this one post. Few weeks ago, some youth from my church came to me and asked if I would preach on the death of Lazarus (John 11:1-44). They had composed a song and showed me the lyrics to play as a response song to the sermon. They even asked me to join them in the band. I had no reason to say “no” to their humble invitation to play my harmonica with them after listening to them singing. That was my first attempt to play any music instrument before the congregation. Continue reading “Martha: “I Do Not Understand Your Timing””
This short video is worth watching. This would make a great sermon illustration. The sermon illustration can be used in a powerful way to draw the attention of your audience and engage with them. I think it is very creative video. Hope you enjoy! [Embed][/embed] Continue reading Stethoscope – Best Commercial Ever!
In my previous post, I already wrote that I am not a singing material. Throughout my short and long-term missions, I acted like singing when the team had to. Nevertheless, I always fully enjoyed when my teammates would sing Gospel songs whenever and wherever we found people during trips. Those days are quite hard to forget, thus I have a hard time overcoming this nostalgia … Continue reading "But Blessed is the One Who Trusts in the LORD"
Last week Saturday, I had what I would like to call it a life time experience with my youth group in the newly formed Nepali-Speaking Community Church. It should not be a big deal for many people who have been a part of choir, or singing on the stage. For me, that was my first time ever on the stage singing any song. Singing is … Continue reading I will not but His Song will Live Forever
I have not been able to keep up with this personal blog. I just want to let y’all know that I also have been posting for different blogs (cafn, cafnepal, cafntube, ambassadorial, apost360) while also going to school as a full-time student. Producing a podcast or sermon every week is also consuming a chunk of time. Sometimes, I also do not know how to manage … Continue reading Busy Summer on the Horizon
One Sunday in church, I happened to talk to a young woman I do not usually talk with. I know that she is a Christian who married a non- Christian. She also has told me that her husband does not mind her going to church either. But coming from a patriarchal+hierarchical culture, she still is under the command of her father-in-law and her husband’s older … Continue reading Sunday Yes! Saturday NO!
I know, I know! It’s been a while that I’ve not posted anything here. I have been very busy, since we had our second son. My proposal for intern pastoral staff position was approved by the elders’ committee. Now, I’m in the pastoral staff in our church for a year. By the end of my term, I’ll have gone for seminary. However, my ministry among … Continue reading Groaning and Growing Together
