WISHING YOU ALL MERRY CHRISTMAS
LORD JESUS CHRIST – A MESSENGER OF LOVE & COMPASSION
Humans are the best of all the creations which our Creator has created because they are bestowed with the faculty of thinking along with power of discrimination. If we acutely introspect as to how everything created is being taken care of by an unseen power, we would reach to a conclusion that Omnipotent and Omniscient One is the one who controls everything around us and beyond. Although He remains an ‘unseen power’ yet nobody disputes His existence though some may agree grudgingly.
God deputes His chosen ones, as His Representatives, to spread the fragrance of His message. Such messengers are the embodiments of piety, purity and compassion. If we delve deep into the lives of such messengers of God, one thing undoubtedly comes out; such special messengers are apostle of peace in real sense of terms. Besides, in their lives they took upon themselves to cure various afflictions of humans – physical and mental. Such God’s ambassadors of peace withstood hardships during their life time, suffered for others and remained disciplined from their childhood onwards. Such special ones continued spreading the message of LOVE and also to help the general public for self realization by communing with God notwithstanding the fact that it was not to the likings of people at the helm of affairs at that time.
These Sons of God did not care for their mundane pleasures but did everything to ameliorate the conditions of the hapless and destitute with their mystical prowess. Their message to the humanity was to be compassionate towards the needs of others besides urging the general masses to uphold their religious duties. One amongst the Messengers of God is the Jesus Christ.
In other words it could be construed that God incarnates as great souls for spreading Divine Message on His behalf. It is a prime requirement of disillusioned minds who are immersed in the world of their own making and never realize that their mission in this world is to spread the message of humanity thereby understand the true purpose of our life on this planet.
The real purpose is to spread the fragrance of love to the fellow beings including all the creations created by our Lord with a consciousness that even intractable challenges of ours could be overcome if we have firm belief in His existence and associate Him in our day to day happenings. Sure enough, we would be surprised about the results of such actions.
Jesus Christ was the one who had won victory against material consciousness. He exists in the hearts and minds of multitudes. He said, ‘I do nothing of myself, but as my Father hath taught me.’ Christians including numberless others who have indomitable belief in His preaching shun delusions and follow His ideals. His presence is felt through his teachings. Those who have self realization know that in every speck of cosmos Christ Consciousness exists but only those who have vision can experience this. Christ Consciousness is a part of Cosmic Consciousness should never be lost sight of by us humans.
Jesus was born in 7 – 2 BC and was crucified in 30-33 AD in Jerusalem. He was born in Nazareth, Galilee to Parents Marry & Joseph. That is why he is also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth. St. Mathew has spoken about the birth: ‘….Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, being interpreted as, God with us.”
His teachings are universal in nature; if we care to follow. If follow these in our day to day lives, we can make our life sublime.
Jesus Christ preached the importance of having compassion for our fellow beings. He taught that kindhearted feeling should always be there even for all including our enemies:-
Mark 6:34 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things.
Colossians 3:12-13 Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
- He is held to be the Son of God, a Messiah or Messenger of God, a charismatic healer:
Matthew 14:14 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed the sick.
- Christ preached forgiveness and mercy. He even forgave those who harmed him immensely. No ill-feelings for anyone absolutely that is the message given:
Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Matthew 18:21-22 Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Daniel 9:9 To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against him
- Christ spread the message to judge others correctly it is fine if we judge others negatively then we will also be judged by our Creator on the Judgement Day then we have to face the music for every creature’s action is recorded in the consciousness of God.
Matthew 7:1-2 Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.
Jesus Christ being a social reformer He had the unique quality of helping those who are suffering – it may be any kind of suffering.
Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
Even for healthy and prosperous family life He had a message (for young women who have to take responsibility to run a family’s affairs):
Titus 2:4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,
LORD JESUS CHRIST – A MESSENGER OF LOVE & COMPASSION
Born to virgin Mary
The loveliest Son of Holiest Spirits of our Lord,
At Bethlehem, the city of David,
A saviour of humanity,
And to spread the fragrance and purity
Of His message of peace to all humanity
Men of wisdom came from places afar,
Mesmerized by this Shining Star,
To witness a holiest event,
Which only happens only rarest of rare time
Angels sing songs so melodious,
Shepherds pay their huge reverence
Filled with immense exuberance.
Even old in years though,
Simeon & Anna saw their ambition fructified,
As they too had a glimpse of the Glorious One,
Brought up in rural town of Nazareth,
His adaptive & adoring father Joseph,
Taught Him the art of using,
Tools of a carpenter,
A labour so arduous by any standard,
Resulting in so much sweating,
By the rays of sun so searing.
The revered God’s Son,
Worked tirelessly in the hot Sun!
Thence as he cometh,
From the waters of Jordan,
A voice so refreshing,
Cometh from Heaven,
‘This is my beloved Son
In whom I am very pleased’.
Thereafter Jesus went to the backwoods,
Surprise of surprises of all, which could not be fathomed!
To allow Satan to temp Him
To break the back of Satan.
He fasted for days forty,
And vanquished the Satan thence forth,
With eternal will of God in the heaven,
Then brimming with the Holy Sprit,
He lived with the commons,
For three long years.
John recorded Jesus as the Son of God,
Who raised the dead to live again,
Made the blinds to get their eyesight back again,
Lames to walk again,
Demons dare not appear again,
Came to the succour of hapless, aplenty,
During storms, with so much ferocity.
With a few loaves and fish,
Made food sufficient for five thousands!
Believe – no alternative, we have to!
Since He is sent by our Creator,
As a Saviour,
As His Incarnate,
The All Knowing,
The All Powerful Being.
Then on a Thursday Night,
Followers he met,
In the city of Jerusalem,
On an occasion so solemn,
He announced, unexpectedly,
It is ordained that He may die,
For those He loved so Him so dearly,
And told them to remember,
His association with them,
And also promised, as destined
To come back, again
For their own sake!
He spent time in the garden of Gethsemane,
Prayed to the Divine Providence.
No case was found against Jesus,
By those who tried Him,
Because He was flawless whence he interacted with gentry
Yet was crucified on Friday even then!
He departed this life,
For He loved us all,
After when He was dead,
His power was proclaimed,
By happening most unexplained,
On the morn of Sunday,
He rose from the dead,
Appeared to Mary,
And apostles and a huge gathering,
And gave the message of love
Goes to prove
He remains invincible in both the states.
O Lord, bestow us Thy Invaluable CHRISTMAS DAY GIFT,
The precious of all Thy Gifts,
That Thee could only grant,
The coveted gift of peaceful coexistence,
In the whole world by Thy Grace
So that this world could be a better place to live,
A place where there is a prevalence of Eternal Love.
