Two Men With Sore Back
Duke Jeyaraj's Poem On The Exciting fifth day of the India-Australia Mohali Test 2010, one of the Greatest Ever Test Matches
Battling a sore back, He batted with resolve to lead India' comeback, He came in when India were 76-5 succumbing to the fierce Aussie bowling attack, He batted with plenty of resolve, and oodles of "wristy" knack, But wickets kept falling at the other end on a typical crumbling, Day 5 track, Yet another winning opportunity after Dhoni's run-out, it certainly looked like, India were about to jack, But Laxman's stunning partnership with Ishant, the Aussies found touch to crack, When Ishant was dismissed, it was as if the Australians were standing on down-an-out India's neck, But amidst great drama, India were finally home in a Test match whose quality was 'top of the rack'! Since 2001 Eden Gardens, into the batting account of VVS Laxman, the Australians are still trying unsuccessful to hack!
Laxman's Mohali Test heroics reminded me of another Person who marched to Jerusalem without looking back, Yes, Jesus went to Jerusalem to be bashed up black and blue everywhere and particularly on his back, So that you, a hell-heading sinner, to God your father, comeback, All you were left with, was disappointment, disillusionment and depression after Satan's attack, But by dying on the Cross, Jesus placed his legs on Satan's neck, In repentance and faith come to Jesus without showing slack, Chasing world's fleeting pleasures your soul's salvation chances, please don't jack!
The Captain of Second Chance, Dhoni. The God of Second Chance, Jesus
Duke Jeyaraj connects a Bible Truth with an event in AirTel Champions League T20 2010
It went to a spine-tingling Super Over finish, this particular T20 game. The Chennai Super Kings Vs Victoria Bushrangers AirTel Champions League Game 2010 went to the Super Over after the scores were level after 40 Overs of nerve-wracking, top-quality cricket on 18 September 2010. As Chennai Super Kings captain Dhoni looked around for volunteers to bowl it, Ravichandran Ashwin, the gangling Tamil Nadu off-spinner put up his hand. He volunteered. And Dhoni gave the ball to him choosing him over his Australian teammate Doug Bollinger. What followed was an absolute disaster. He was ‘looted’ for 23 runs. He forgot his clever bowling variations in those tense moments. He forgot his ‘carrom ball’ – the ball he bowled to get the wicket of Aaron Finch who scored 41 off 17 balls, earlier in the game. He bowled flat and full or flat and short. He was carted for three sixes by David Hussey. The last ball he bowled disappeared over long on for a huge six. In reply, Chennai could only 13 runs off the 6 balls they faced. Ashwin’s pathetic bowling had cost Chennai the match. As he collapsed in the ground in agony and disappointment Captain Dhoni had words of consolation for Ashwin. Not only that, he reposed his faith in Ashwin by giving him the opening over in Chennai Super Kings’ very next game, a do-or-die game against, the Warriors.
Should Christians be involved in burning the Koran? No. A thousand times no. The Bible does talk about burning of books. It does so in Acts 19:19, "And a number of those who had practiced magic arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted the value of them and found it came to fifty thousand pieces of silver. " Those who practiced magic arts, when they realized their sin upon exposure to the preaching of the Goodnews by the Apostles, burnt the books they once treasured. They did this on their own. It is one thing for a Muslim who repents and believes on Jesus to burn the Koran. It is totally another thing for a Christian to burn the Koran for whatever the reason. Doing the second thing is certainly not correct. Rather than burning the Koran, Christians should look into their secret lives and see what they have in possession displeasing to the Lord and burn-up those things, mercilessly. Things like pride and self-bloated ego. Things like porn CDs and porn literature. Things like romantic interest and a relationship with unbelievers. We have the example of Moses in this regard. See what he did to the Golden Calf that his own brother Aaron set up: Duet 9:21 - Then I (Moses) took the sinful thing, the calf that you (Aaron) had made, and burned it with fire and crushed it, grinding it very small, until it was as fine as dust. And I threw the dust of it into the brook that ran down from the mountain.
Harsha Bhogle is one of my favorite Cricket Commentators. His comments about Suraj Randiv deliberate no-ball in the India-Sri Lanka One Day International on 16 August 2010 to leave Sehwag stranded on 99 wowed me. Here they are: As he grows into the game Suraj Randiv will realize grace and competitiveness can go together. He achieved little with that intentional no-ball but lost a lot (The Times of India, August 18, 2010). Harsha's words made me recall the uncommon personality of the One I Worship - Jesus Christ. Jesus had in his character what Suraj Randiv did not in this case. Jesus showed that grace and competitiveness (sternness) can go together. That is what Paul was talking about when he wrote: Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God; sternness to those who fell and kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness (Rom 11:22). He was called the Lion (who could growl with words of warning and judgement against sin). And yet he was the Lamb (who was gentle when he was pinned on the cross as a substitute for those very sins he growled against). He showed grace when the woman caught red-handed in adultery was brought to him, by saying, "The one among you without sin would throw the first stone on her!" And after everyone left, he growled at her, so to speak, by saying, "Leave your life of sin!" Would you invite this balanced Jesus in your life and 'learn from him'?
Friendship Day Special Article: A Friend closer than a Brother! by Duke Jeyaraj
The popular TV programme Friends is a huge hit with yahoo youth. But you know what, despite the fact that many young people’s whole life revolves around their friends they are lonely. It may be unbelievable but it’s true – the lonely feeling hits even when they are rubbing shoulders with each other in a big crowd! A popular music group sang, "All alone in this world…"
To a generation for which loneliness is the best friend it’s my joy to introduce a "friend who sticks closer than a brother" (Prov 18:24). Who? Jesus. He is getting bad press these days. He is portrayed as one who lives in unapproachable light. He lives there no doubt, but hardly anyone hammers home the fact that He is an understanding Friend. We know He is God – 100%. But how many of us have celebrated the fact that He is human – also 100%. Read the last sentence again. I am not talking about a celebral understanding but a celebration of the humanity of Jesus!
