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

Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.” – Psalm 127:1

Few months back my father got severe fever and cold. At that time my mom was with me taking care of my daughter and my father was in another city with my elder brother. Both my brother and sister in law were working and they leave home at 9 and return back around 5 in the evening.
As my father could not able to go to work on that day because of his health, he stayed back in home. Around 1:30 in the afternoon he called my mother and said that he is going to have some hot water. 

My father switched the gas cylinder to the ON position and he ignited the stove. As he was about to complete his work, my mom told him to keep the gas to the minimum position and then take the vessel from the stove. 

My father did the same and then he went to take rest in another room. The actual thing that happened was he kept the gas position to minimum but he forgot to switch off the stove. 

He slept for few hours and because of his old age he never remembered to put off the flame. My elder brother returned home around 5 in the evening and as he went to the kitchen to fetch some water he found that the flame was glowing in the minimum position. He then immediately switched off the gas. 

When we heard about that incident our heart filled with a great fear as we imagined what would have happened if that flame went off automatically. There is a greater chance of that since the gas knob was in a minimum position. If it might have happened the gas would have spread through the entire house and my dad would have surely failed to sense the smell as he was having severe cold. 

And we know that my elder brother has the habit of switching ON the light immediately when he enters the house. If these things happened we know it would have caused greater damage to the lives of my dad and my elder brother’s family. 

On the other side our heart was filled with a great thanksgiving as God protected our family on that day. He didn’t let the flame to go off for more than 3 hours. His hands protected us on that day. 

As I look back, I thank Jesus Christ for protecting the lives of my dad, my elder brother and my sister in law. We are alive only because of the grace and protection of Jesus Christ. 

My dear young friends, surrender your family members into the precious hands of Jesus Christ. He will protect everyone of your family member. You will not perish.
