The Three Friends and the Three Loves

                           The Three Friends and the  three loves.

LOVE, Blessings, and Greetings to you in the “Only name” worthy of All praises, glory and honor!


The “Rabooni” I love the most, came with this word to me one night and I want to share this with you for the month of August-2010. The scripture comes from:


                                        LUKE: 11.5-13

I tell the passage in my own words here to save you from a long reading.


I tell the passage in my own words here to save you from a long reading.

Mr.A lives in a particular town and was asleep with his kids. Mr. B, also lives in the same town and he too was asleep with his family. Mr. C, was a a journey that took him to the town of Mr.B and by the time he reached the town it was mid night and he was hungry. Mr.C was a friend of Mr.B, and so Mr.C decides to go and stay with Mr. B, in the hope of getting food and Rest, un mindful of the time he visits with out notice and the trouble he will be causing. 

And it did cause trouble to Mr.B. He did not have any food to lay before his friend. May be with out his knowledge, hoping to get help, resources and food, he rushes to the doors of Mr.A and said, “Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine in his journey come to me, and I have nothing to set before him?” Lu.11:…5-6.

” …trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I can not raise and give thee.” was the answer from Mr.A. How ever Mr.B would not leave the doors but kept on asking. And finally Mr.A got out of the 3 loaves, not because Mr.B was his friend, but because Mr.B was in “importunity”


The Might night Knocks


  1. We all know that the night falleth that NO MAN can work. Saints universally agree that we  live in great spiritual darkness, and the very essentials of Christian Faith lost it’s Spiritual flavor. We are like trees with out deep roots. Our religion is man, world and modernism oriented and not Christian oriented. The Holy Spirit id totally out of his people and a strange Spirit is now at work, perverting the Gospel of Jesus Christ, entrusted to by Jesus.

This is Spiritual darkness! But Even at this situation, we will have Visitors to our doors, seeking rest and food. There are hungry friends all around us. And they take asylum with  in the hope that they will get what they want.


In Jer.4:4 , we read, “The tongue of the sucking child cleaveth to the roof of his mouth for  thirst: the young children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them.

We are living in the times of Jeremiah! who forth told the captivity of the People of the Lord and the destruction of Jerusalem etc..During the month of August, people around us, fast and go to their temples, severely puncturing their bodies. Long iron rods are pierced through their mouths and bodies. They pull heavy Chariots. This is a sorrowful month for me and I close the doors of my house and Cry to the Living God to strop this and draw


  1. Called to stand in the gap:


Mr.B, is like the one who stands in the gap. Please! read. Eze. 22:30 ” And I sought for a  man among them, that should make up the edge, and stand in the gap before me for the  world, that I should not destroy it: BUT FOUND NONE”.

Jesus, is our man standing in the gap now! How ever he needs a man to go to the house of  Mr.A, and keep knocking till he got some bread. Mr.B, was not a beggar. Some times, the people who stand in the middle are misunderstood and are treated   as beggars and this is pure spiritual ignorance and immaturity. It is a paradox  that people who are given the mission of serving others always lack worldly goods. And that’s how Mr. B, was and he had to go to his friends, asking for bread, to feed the hungry friend.

Mr.B, was not ashamed to tell out his importunity. In vernacular translations the word, Importunity is translated as,” because he asked with pleadings”. Yes!

 Mr.B, stood at the doors of Mr.A, pleading for his friend.
Look at Jesus style of Asking! In Heb.5:7, ” Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up his prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto Him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared”  Mr. A was moved with  his friend’s pleadings!

  1. Mr.A, is in Action now! He left the children, got out of the rest and bed and gave the three loaves to Mr.B, so that Mr.C, waiting with hunger, should have food and go to rest.
    * Notice! that this was not done on the basis of a relationship but purely on the basis of importunity of “B”. And what a paradox it is to-day. Every single act of mercy is ONLY based on relation ships. Either, you belong to a particular denomination, or the one willing to follow a particular statement of faith or you belong to a particular nationality. And the most confusing element is that every one claim that they are the only genuine and pure sects.

    Why should Mr.B take such risks, in an un noticed visit of a friend? and stoop down to begging for bread? Even He could have said, my house, my food and my kids and my rest etc..etc..Is this the way to do a mission work or Charity? always begging, begging and egging? Remember, Mr.B, was asking only a “loan” and may be the text day, he will buy from the shop and will return it.

The Bible says, ” He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him back.” (Prov.19:P17)
There is a hungry world on an eternal journey and few come to us seeking rest and food! And may the Lord help us to serve him, always asking in faith and always standing on the gap.
Pray for us that the Lord may show mercy to us.
