பரிசுத்த வேதாகமம்

அக்காலத்திலே நீங்கள் சொல்வது: கர்த்தரைத் துதியுங்கள்; அவர் நாமத்தைத் தொழுதுகொள்ளுங்கள்; அவருடைய செய்கைகளை ஜனங்களுக்குள்ளே அறிவியுங்கள்; அவருடைய நாமம் உயர்ந்ததென்று பிரஸ்தாபம்பண்ணுங்கள்.

கர்த்தரைக் கீர்த்தனம்பண்ணுங்கள், அவர் மகத்துவமான கிரியைகளைச் செய்தார்; இது பூமியெங்கும் அறியப்படக்கடவது என்பீர்கள்.

திருவிவிலியம்

அந்நாளில் நீங்கள் சொல்வதாவது; ஆண்டவருக்கு நன்றி செலுத்துங்கள்; அவர் திருப்பெயரைப் போற்றுங்கள்; மக்களினங்களிடையே அவர்செயல்களை அறிவியுங்கள்; அவர் திருப்பெயர் உயர்க எனப் பறைசாற்றுங்கள்.

ஆண்டவருக்குப் புகழ்ப்பா அமைத்துப் பாடுங்கள்; ஏனெனில் அவர் மாட்சியுறும் செயல்களைப் புரிந்துள்ளார்; அனைத்துலகும் இதை அறிந்து கொள்வதாக.

Verse of The Day – 2 Thessalonians 3:10-12

New International Version

For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”

We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies.

Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the food they eat.

New Revised Standard Version

For even when we were with you, we gave you this command: Anyone unwilling to work should not eat.

For we hear that some of you are living in idleness, mere busybodies, not doing any work.

Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.

King James Version

For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

Verse of The Day – Mark 14:36 (Submit to God’s Will)

New International Version

“Abba, Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.”

New Revised Standard Version

He said, “Abba, Father, for you all things are possible; remove this cup from me; yet, not what I want, but what you want.”

King James Version

And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.

Submitting to God’s Will

In the run for succeeding in our daily lives, we tend to ask God only for what we want. When we pray, if we are patient, we’ll probably start with a line of thanks to God for all we have, and proceed to list out all that we want. If we are in a hurry to get what we want, we even skip the thanks.

As kids, almost all of us would have been stubborn at least for one thing – and pestered our parents to get it for us no matter what. We would relentlessly pester them till we either got what we asked, or were scolded/slapped by them. If we got what we asked for, there is a good likelihood that the happiness of receiving it doesn’t last long.

As adults, we still tend to carry that habit of relentlessly pursuing things which we have set our minds upon. Perhaps we may pester someone to do something for us. But more often than not, the person at the receiving end of this harassment will be our Heavenly Father, when we literally hold Him by the neck and ask for our desires to be fulfilled.

Those things maybe reasonable to ask, or some things might be completely unreasonable. Whatever it is, our Father knows what’s best for us. We can trust our parents to do what’s best for us. But that should mean giving up our interests to let them carry out their interests for us. We must accept that God will carry out His interests for our lives, and when He does that, we will either receive what we wish for, or we will receive something much better.

Jesus Himself didn’t do as His own will. He had all the power to decide for Himself, but at no point did He do that. He knew that He was going to suffer beyond imagination, and even prayed to His Father to take away the burden. But, it is the “but” clause we must note and learn from. Despite this harrowing knowledge, He submitted His whole being to God to carry out God’s will. In the end, He rose above all in ultimate victory.

God wants us to have perfect free will – a free will He wishes us to submit to Him – so that He will let us fulfill our purpose on earth, and meet Him as a whole being in Heaven.

Verse of The Day – Matthew 6:9-15

New International Version

“This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
  your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
 Give us today our daily bread.
 And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
 And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

New Revised Standard Version

“Pray then in this way:

Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name.
     Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done,
        on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread.
     And forgive us our debts,
        as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And do not bring us to the time of trial,
        but rescue us from the evil one.

For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you;

but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

King James Version

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
