The Christian Messenger - Evangelism Through Journalism. The Christian Messenger is an evangelical monthly newspaper published from Chennai, India. Started in 2002 as a privately circulated periodical, its initial print run was 2,500 copies. A year later, it became a registered newspaper. Currently, the print order is 15,000 copies. It is perhaps the only Christian newspaper that spans the length and breadth of the country. The founders of the newspaper have a vision to make it India’s leading Christian daily.What we do: Good news, first! That's our burden. Good news is not just the Gospel but also the positive side of Christian living. But that doesn't mean we don't report bad news. Persecution, end-times watch, falling idols and Biblical prophecies that come true are part of our reportage. We are dependent on God and independent of any denomination, groups or organizations. Neither do we let advertisers influence news coverage nor do we print puffed up handouts. We are fair, neutral and non-judgmental. Because we believe in a God who tells the truth and expects us to be like Him. Why a Christian newspaper? At the heart of our media mission is this motto: Evangelism through journalism. The purpose of this newspaper is to report newsworthy religious events and activities within the local community, nationwide and around the world, to increase the awareness and activism of believers regarding the moral issues of today, to provide thought-provoking commentary, and to provide an effective advertising vehicle for Christian ministries and organizations, events and businesses that want to reach the Christian community in India and abroad.

I want to encourage you today! I don't know exactly what you are facing in your life this moment, I don't know what your problems are, what trials and tribulations you are experiencing in your life right now. But I do know this, everyone reading these words today is going though something. No matter what it is, I want to give you a message right from the throne room of God...DON'T GIVE UP!!!
I am not going to tell you that all of your problems will be solved by the time you go to bed tonight, chances are they won't. I am not going to tell you that everything will work out exactly the way you want it to, chances are they won't. I am going to tell you, however, that God will provide the answers to whatever your problems may be. I am going to tell you, however, that God will work everything out. God promised us in His Word, "...and we
know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

If you are battling with an illness in your body today...don't give up! If you are battling with your finances today...don't give up! If you are battling with your marriage today...don't give up! If you are you are battling with your employment or schooling today...don't give up! If you are battling with your children today...don't give up! If you are battling with an addiction today...don't give up! No matter what your battle is today, don't give up!
My friend, God loves you. He knows what you are going through in your life today. He has not abandoned you, He has not forsaken you. In your darkest hour you can be assured that God is right there with you. When everyone else has turned their back on you, when everyone else has run away, when nobody is left to stand with you...God is still there! On the night He was betrayed, Jesus saw His disciples run from Him, deny even knowing Him, yet He was never alone because God was with Him. Even when those you love the most leave you, Jesus is there because He promised to "never leave you nor forsake you."

I love you and care about you so much. I want you to know that I am standing in the gap for you today. I am standing with you and believing God for your needs to be met. You may not see your answer today, or tomorrow, or next week, or next month, or even next year. God's timing is not our timing, but God's timing is always perfect. He is never a second too early, or a second too late. Don't give up!
The children of Israel would have never seen the Promised Land had Moses given up. He wandered in the desert for 40 years...think about it...40 years! If God leaves us in the desert for 40 minutes we will complain! We can learn from Moses today that no matter what we are going though in our life, if we will continue to trust God, keep our faith in the Lord regardless what the circumstances may be, He will deliver us and meet our every need. The key however, is that you don't give up!
I will be praying for you today. Praying that the Lord will give you His peace no matter what you may be facing in your life at this moment. Praying that God will give you His strength today. Paul wrote to the church at Galatia to "...not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." As you wait on God to answer your prayers, to meet your needs, continue to be faithful. Remember that as we are about our Father's business, He will be about our business!
God is saying to you that no matter what you are going through today...don't give up!
"Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain." (1 Corinthians 15:58)
