Rev. L. Suohie Mhasi
Knowing the Creator is the primary need of mankind. It is the foundation of consistent life for mankind. By truly knowing God only one can believe, fear and obey Him. The ones who really know God delight the perfect characteristics of God and hate evils. The Lord Jesus Christ said that no one can serve two masters. In like manner no one can seek the will of God at the same time the pleasure of man. Righteousness of God and wickedness of man cannot go together. The man who is being led by the Spirit of God cannot intentionally indulge in any sinful activity because anything which grieves the Spirit of God in us is perceived by us. Knowing God and doing His will has the value according to the promise known to the person who really knows God. The secret of fearing and obeying God and having relationship with God is experienced by the ones who have relationship with God.
Why does dissension and division arise in the organizations? There are different causes. Whatever may be the cause or reason , no problem is beyond settling it amicably. The difference or misunderstanding or mistake can be thrashed out by sitting together with the intention to resolve it. But failing to do it results in split or division. WHAT IS THE CAUSE OF FAILURE? Because no one gives importance to listening to the voice of God for the right thing to do.
The way of Christ is the higher ground whereas the old traditional way is the basing ground. Prayer is the usual practice in every meeting but after prayer God is out of the mindset and the whole mind is exerted forth for prestige and prestige leads to any eventually. In the context of Nagaland , there are many different Political groups or parties and instead of resolving the problems for the people, they themselves create problems for the public and Tribal conflicts are endless. Our people in general are far from truly knowing God which must be concerned about.
