کنم جانم نثارت ای مسیحا
سر و پایم فدایت ای مسیحا
بگذاری بر دو دیده بار منت
بیا یک شب به خوابم ای مسیحا
تو گفتی به پشت در منم من
گشودم در به رویت ای مسیحا
توئی معبود و محبوب من
منم مشتاق دیدارت ای مسیحا
( شعر از فرامرز اعظیمی )
Before his death, Jesus Christ had promised that he would send the Holy Spirit, who is called the Comforter, to guide and strengthen the apostles in the services they should perform after his ascension to heaven.
When we talk to our Muslim friends about the Holy Spirit, some of them claim that Jesus Christ clearly said that another person or another prophet will come after him.
Each day I notice the fingerprints of God around me. I see it in the sunrise or feel it in the warmth of my blankets on a cold winter night. Sometimes I see it in the rain and even the way a cup of coffee tastes. Why? Because these momentary pleasures are gifts. Each whisper of the essence of what eternity will be like with God. Had Jesus not died on the cross, these little moments would be empty distractions instead of eternal promises. The cross echoes the stories of what Jesus did for us. But some ask, “Why?” Why did Jesus have to die on the cross?
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.I do not give to you as the world gives
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
