Jesus said: ‘You should not be surprised at My saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” (Jn 3:7, 8)
Dr. Toju Eresanara came to visit us today. Our relationship is quite interesting. He and his wife Trish Eresanara are long time family friends who attend our church. He is my doctor. I am his pastor. He came to see me, for a medical checkup; to see how I am walking now. He was pleased with the improvement. As usual, we discussed spiritual things too. He told me that he lost four of his patients. They all died last week, one after the other. I know how he feels for I practiced medicine for 20 years. When you try your best but your patient dies, it is always painful. Our professors in medicine told us to remain emotionally detached from our patients, but in practice, that is not easy. This is so hard; not only for the families but also for the nurses and for the doctors. Dr. Toju and I, we reminded ourselves of the privilege of being a child of God, of the comfort of the Holy Spirit and that of prayer, especially when life is hard. We prayed for each other before he left.
Now listen… I am pleading with you who are depressed; with you who read these words… You are religious but you are not saved…You need to be born again! Life is too hard to be lived alone. Life is too painful to be ‘managed’ without God! You need to give your life to the Lord Jesus Christ! You may smile as you read these words because Facebook is a joke to you. But I use Facebook to do real ministry. I am serious about it. Think about the needs of your soul! You need to be free from the bondage of fears and depression. Come to Jesus! Come to the Cross! Believe in the Lord Jesus and be saved! Be born again by the power of the Holy Spirit!
‘There is room at the Cross for you…though millions have come, there is still room for one…There is room at the Cross for you’. Jesus loves you! Come Home!
