About the Book

Every Christian, who tries to lead a life seriously committed to their Gospel principles in this postmodern world, finds it hard to survive the day-to-day life and move in the midst of the postmodern crowds and to continue to have one’s being in the invisible resurrected Lord. Survival of a sincere Christian is in question in this fast-paced life. This book’s contents would support these disciples of Jesus to carry on daily this august spiritual exercise. When this spiritual exercise of meditating on the Word of God is being performed, they certainly will reach God’s presence within them. Then they follow their hearing Him, their loving Him, and their saying yes to Him and starts their joyful and contented journey of Christian life, not to survive but to succeed in life. The author writes: “The thoughts I share here mostly came out of my daily meditation on the scriptures and of my encounter with ‘Jesus alive.’ I hope in all honesty that the spiritual doses I offer here will help the reader as meditation for preventing and medication for curing as well. These daily doses will support the reader in coming out of the gloomy and cloudy days of the past and in marching on smilingly and boldly to a new heaven and new earth in celebrating one’s ‘today’ as the day of the Lord.”
