LORD JESUS CHRIST – A MESSENGER OF LOVE & COMPASSION
Born to the virgin Mary, the most respected one
The venerable mother of the God
Jesus of Nazareth was a religious preacher
Debated with his fellow brethren
As to how best to follow God
And establish connectivity with Him
Thereby transform and make their lives sublime
With their thoughts and actions.
Healed hapless gentry of their pains
that is the reason He is called with love Messiah – the saver of the oppressed
The despondent ones due to adverse circumstances.
He had his own followings
All these things created jealousies in the minds of Jewish authorities
Alas! He was arrested and then crucified
On the order of Pontius Pilate.
After his crucification
He rose from the dead – resurrected indeed
And into the Heaven he ascended
Thus proved saver in real sense of term
Thence transformed the lives of countless people
Holy Messenger with his noble and eternal messages.
The loveliest Son of Holiest Spirits of our Lord
At Bethlehem, the city of David
A saviour of humanity
To spread the Message of God
Men of wisdom came from places afar
Mesmerized by this Shining Star
To witness a holiest event
Which only sometimes happen
Angels sing songs so melodious
Shepherds pay their utmost reverence.
Old in years the two
Simeon & Anna saw their ambition fructified
As they too had a glimpse of the Glorious One
Brought up in rural town of Nazareth
His adaptive father Joseph
Taught Him the art of using
Tools of a carpenter
A labour so arduous by any standard
Resulting in sweating
By the rays of sun so searing.
The revered God’s Son
Worked tirelessly in the hot Sun!
Thence as he cometh
From the waters of Jordan
A voice so invigorating,
Cometh from Heaven
‘This is my beloved Son
In whom I am very pleased’
Thereafter Jesus went to the backwoods
Surprise of surprises of all!
To allow Satan to temp Him
To break the back of Satan.
He fasted for days forty,
And vanquished the Satan thence forth
With eternal will of God in the heaven
Then brimming with the Holy Sprit,
He lived with the commons
For three long years.
John recorded Jesus as the Son of God
Who raised the dead to live again
Made the blinds to see again
Lames to walk again
Demons not to appear again
Came to the succour of hapless,
During mighty storms.
With a few loaves and fish
Made food sufficient for five thousands!
Believe – we have to!
Since He is sent by Him
As a Saviour
As His Incarnate,
The All Knowing
The All Powerful Being.
Then on a Thursday Night,
He meets his followers
In the city of Jerusalem
On an occasion so solemn
It is ordained that He may die
For those He loved so dearly
And told them to remember
His association with them
And also promised
To come back,
For their sake!
He spent time in the garden of Gethsemane
Prayed to the Divine Providence.
No case was found against Jesus
By those who tried Him
Yet was crucified on Friday
He departed this life
For He loved us all
After when He was dead,
His power was proclaimed
By happening most unexplained
On the morn of Sunday,
He rose from the dead,
Appeared to Mary,
And apostles and a huge gathering,
And gave the message of love
Goes to prove
He remains invincible in both the states.
GREATEST GIFT FROM OUR LORD
Our Heavenly Lord sends,
His own Love overflowing Messengers,
With Mastery in Spiritual-Vision,
To spread His pious Message to us humans,
And reforming His creations,
So that world-weary practices,
Which corrupt the society at large,
Are weeded out swiftly,
From our midst,
And adopt the ones,
Ordained by our Lord,
With huge sprinkle of enchanting-bountiful Love.
Jesus Christ was sent to us by the Lord Sup0reme,
For our wellbeing and reform,
So that the rust created by old & useless rituals,
Could be erased by mystifying spray of pious ideals and ideas,
Which the Super Soul doles out,
For the gentry at large,
Some may not take these holy ideals,
Thinking these to be far-fetched,
As many did,
When Lord Jesus was with us,
In flesh and blood,
For which He had to suffer pangs,
Fearlessly at the Cross/- crucification
And finally resurrection,
To make us realize that,
The True Son of Lord cannot be done away with,
By anybody – however powerful,
Those individuals be there at the helm,
His preaching will remain enlightening us,
Through Christ Consciousness.
O Lord, bestow us Thy Invaluable CHRISTMAS DAY GIFT,
The precious of all Thy Gifts,
That Thee could only grant,
The coveted gift of peaceful coexistence,
In the whole world by Thy Grace
So that this world could be a better place to live,
A place where there is a prevalence of Eternal Love
GOD BE PRAISED
In essence, God sends the pious souls to spread the Divine Message on His behalf. This is necessitated in order to refine and purify the deluded souls who do not know that their life is impermanent here on this earth. One who is born has to leave the world one day. With this realization, one can live without attachment with the material world while realizing the purpose of life. This is also to foster brotherly feeling while following a life of compassion and rendering selfless service. Therefore, God be praised for bringing home His teachings to the humanity for application in daily lives and live a sublime existence.
JESUS CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED FOR OUR WELLNESS ONLY
We remember and celebrate this pious day, without forgetting that Lord Jesus Christ was crucified for us only so that God’s creations spread the message of love amongst themselves for peace and harmony while living a purposeful living.
JESUS CHRIST’S TEACHINGS
His teachings are universal in nature and are more relevant now than ever since our world is in dire need of peace and prosperity to go hand in hand. There is a definitive imprint of His teachings on the psyche of people and that is why His influence remains centuries after centuries. Those sincere devotees who have attained certain level of spirituality can see the Divine Vision after their consciousness is more awakened.
His teachings are very exhaustive, if we care to follow the ones mentioned below, we can make our life more purposeful with love suffusing for our brethren:-

WHAT IS CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS?
When we have determined to perform something for others without any selfish motive, it means we have reached to the realm of Christ Consciousness.
When we perform our duties towards our family, it means we are performing our duty towards our close relatives which anyhow is our responsibility and cannot shun that in any way. But when we enhance our outreach to our neighbors and share their pains and sufferings then it means we are realizing the importance of Christ Consciousness. Subsequently, if it goes beyond neighbourhood to society and even in wider sphere then we are totally immersed in this noble cause.
Essentially, when we do think and act logically and are having the same noble idea for others then we are in that realm. This is possible if we expand our consciousness by being empathetic to all; with whom we are having relationship or do not have such relations. Both of these people should be dear to us. This expanded consciousness expands ourselves to higher horizons. Jesus Christ did not differentiate between his relatives and others. All in all He eyed everybody – differentiating nobody based on any consideration.
While we are having compassion for others, it means, we are beginning to expand our consciousness. His assertion: ‘Bless them that curse you’ stands good in this scheme of things. He even had good words for those who stood against Him. He said: Father, forgive them for they know not what they do. God forgives our faults, then, why we cannot have sympathy and cultivate helping nature for our brethrens? Having done that, we can expand our consciousness to sub-consciousness and super-consciousness through our positive thoughts and actions and even manifest to Divine Consciousness. This state could be achieved by knowing the importance of Christ Consciousness.
Jesus was the one who had won victory against material consciousness. He exists in the hearts and minds of His followers. He said, ‘I do nothing of myself, but as my Father hath taught me.’ Christians including numberless others who have resolute belief in His preaching shun delusions and follow His ideals. His presence is felt through his teachings. Those who have self realization or self aware know that in every speck of cosmos Christ Consciousness exists but only those who have vision can experience this. Christ Consciousness is a part of Cosmic Consciousness should never be lost sight of by us humans. It is all inclusive and does not exclude anything.
May His teachings/messages, eternal indeed, remain etched in our memory and guide us to lead our lives with a lot of love, empathy and selflessness.
