You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“He raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap, that He may seat him with princes-with the princes of His people.” – Psalms 113:7,8.

There lived a young man who was born in a poor middle class family. He could not bear the anguish of poverty in his life. To pursue his degree, he joined a college and there he fell in sin along with his friends. As a result he failed in his course. He could not bear the pain of poverty, unemployment and failures in life.

He hated his life to the core and so he thought of ending his life. One day as he walked towards the railway track to end his life, he met his uncle on the way who shared the love of Jesus Christ with him and his uncle’s words comforted him. His uncle told him to surrender his life into the hands of God. 

The young man went to the Lord’s presence and surrendered his life into the hands of God. Jesus Christ filled him with His peace and joy of salvation.

But yet we may think that what God can do with this young man’s life who failed in his spiritual life and studies. We cannot comprehend God’s action with our human mind. 

Jesus Christ took the life of that young man in His hands and blessed Him. This young man was none other than late Dr. D.G.S Dhinakaran.

In his studies he failed at his young age but when he died he was called as Dr. D.G.S Dhinakaran. Not only that but God raised him as the Founder Chancellor of a Christian Engineering University where thousands of young people are getting graduated every year. How could Jesus Christ give doctorate degree to a man who failed in his basic degree and make him a founder chancellor of a big university? To man it is impossible but to God it is possible. Remember, Jesus Christ is a mighty God who can do anything. All things are possible with God.

Not only in studies but God also blessed his spiritual life. Once D.G.S Dhinakaran was living in sin but when God touched his life, he was transformed into a new person. God started to use him mightily and millions of people around the world were touched through his comforting message. When he died they called him ‘Apostle of Love’.

I just want to place before you two important thoughts which Holy Spirit wanted me to share. 

Once Uncle DGS was a failure in his studies. He thought he can never pass his degree. But Jesus Christ blessed him with a doctorate degree and made him to work as a manager in State Bank of India for several years. 

Similarly Uncle DGS failed in his spiritual life at his young age. But Jesus Christ transformed him and raised him as a world renowned evangelist. He was called the ‘Apostle of Love’.

At his young age, Uncle DGS thought that his life had no blessing at all. When he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ, God used him mightily and blessed millions of people through his life. 

Even today the Christian engineering university and the Jesus Calls ministry that God established through Uncle DGS, were standing tall for the glory of Jesus Christ. 

My dear young friends, even today you might be thinking that you have no blessings in your life. You might think that you are not at all useful for anything. Do not get discouraged. 

Jesus Christ lifted Uncle DGS out of ash heap and dust. He made him to sit along with the presidents and princes of the nations. Jesus Christ will do the same in your life. Your life will not end in the dust. You will receive blessing and you will be a blessing to many.

Today you might say that you are doing nothing for the glory of God as you are struggling with the sin. Do not worry. Jesus Christ will wash you with His blood and make you stand for His glory. You will proclaim God’s word to many people.

Today you might be running around someone for their prayers. Holy Spirit says to you that soon God will use you in such a way that people will come running to you for your prayers. 

You are poor in your studies, job and in your spiritual life. Your life is not going to end that way because Jesus Christ is going to lift you high. You will be blessed and a blessing to many.

“He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.” – Job 9:10
