I Was Glad When PM Narendra Modi Began His Swachh Bharat Campaign

Imagine a scenario with me. Today, as you are going about your early morning routine, you feel the need to relieve yourself. You wait until the sun comes up and then you go and knock on your neighbor’s door. Once they answer, the two of you venture quietly and carefully to a safe place outside where you can answer nature’s call. This is the most dangerous part of your day. This situation sounds strange, I know. But imagine if there… Read more

Are You Willing to Listen and Surrender So He Can Have His Way?

By Danny Yohannan Some years ago while listening to the radio, I came across an interesting discussion between two pastors. Part of their discussion was talking about how society pressures kids to figure out what they want to do with their lives based on their passions and interests. What caught my attention were the next few sentences. They said something to the extent of, “Parents, why don’t you help your child learn to ask the question, ‘What does God want… Read more

Dr. KP Yohannan Metropolitan: The Most Common Reason We Are Intolerant Is Our Deep-Seated Pride

Today is November 16, the International Day for Tolerance. This day is set aside to acknowledge that the diversity of the world’s many castes, creeds, religions, people groups and cultures is not a reason for hate, but rather these differences are a means to stretch us and grow us to value ways of life different than what we know. We don’t naturally see the world through the eyes of our fellow man, but through our own. Our own experience, traditions… Read more

When a Battle is Critical, it’s Good to Have Veteran Troops to Call Upon

Usually when we hear the word veteran, we think of it in a military context. We understand a veteran to be someone who has served in one of the branches of this country’s armed forces. This year, Veterans Day, a national holiday, falls on November 11. The purpose is to honor all those who have served in such a capacity at any time. Ceremonies will begin with a special service held in Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C., followed later in… Read more

Who Cares for Us in Our Deserts of Adversity? Asks Dr. KP Yohannan Metropolitan

When we look at what happened in Sutherland Springs, Texas, this week, we are still trying to wrap our minds around it. It’s so difficult to comprehend. It is being called the worst mass shooting in Texas. The number of children, even babies, who were killed is just agonizing. We cannot really bring ourselves to the place of fully entering into this tragedy. Even just reading the news reports and interviews has changed us and left a mark on our… Read more

Pray For Those Facing Great Danger for Sharing God’s Love, Says Dr. KP Yohannan Metropolitan

Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP). It’s an opportunity for us as believers to remember the millions of Christians around the world who are persecuted for Christ. This January, Jeremy Weber of Christianity Today wrote, “For the third year in a row, the modern persecution of Christians worldwide has hit another record high.” Based on what God’s Word says regarding the times leading up to Christ’s return, we know persecution will only increase. When… Read more

Dr. KP Yohannan Metropolitan: Around IDOP Set Aside Time to Pray, Find God’s Heart

I have a list of people that I pray for daily, weekly and monthly. Recently, I was going through this list, and quite a bit of time went by before I realized my heart was not awakened. My mind was engaged but my heart was dead. I had all these names to pray through, but I was just fulfilling a duty. Prayer, unless we are diligent and thoughtful, can become horizontal. It can be only a list, a task to… Read more

God’s Looking for People Whose Eyes Are Fixed on Him, Affirms Dr. KP Yohannan Metropolitan

I remember the winter of 1980. I was ready to start my first major tour to share about the ministry of Gospel for Asia. I had bought a cheap air ticket that gave me unlimited travel for 21 days. I had meetings lined up across the country. However, on the day of my departure, a terrible winter storm hit the region. All the buses—including the one I planned to take from Oklahoma to Dallas—were cancelled. My old Nova had some… Read more

Lord, Take Eternity and Stamp it on My Eyes, Says Dr. KP Yohannan Metropolitan

There was a time in my life I was so discouraged I considered leaving the ministry completely and going into real estate. Outwardly, I was doing all the right things, but my heart had become cold. One day, I was reading about the life of Jacob in the Bible, and suddenly the Lord began to speak to my heart. I realized, just like Jacob, I had messed up. I had been focused on good things, but not the right things…. Read more
