We had four God-filled, Spirit-soaked days in Ekklesia 2016. Read a report on how God moved us into a deeper realm of intimacy with Him on our latest blog.

May our good Lord talk to you through these posts. God bless you. May God be glorified.
Here are the excerpts from You Vs You 4.0 panel discussion that the Rebuilders organised on the 23rd of August 2014. We’ll be covering the discussion in a Q&A format in three parts over the next week or two, which will make it easier for the reader to understand, and also help them get an idea of what You vs You is all about.
Today, we cover a part of that discussion, where Ligin Abraham, Executive Director of Bethel Engineering Pvt. Ltd., answers a few questions on a born-again Christian’s attitude to the field of business. Prince Scaria was the moderator of the event.
This blog is based on the You vs You 3.0 panel discussion that took place in Dombivli on 2 October 2013. Prince Scaria, a part of the Rebuilders Group, was one of the panelists who spoke and discussed on the topic ‘Conflict of Interest among friends’.
What is conflict of interest?
A conflict of interest (COI) occurs when an individual or organization is involved in multiple interests, one of which could possibly corrupt the motivation for an act in another. – Wiki.
How can there be Conflict of Interest among friends:
Let me take you through a scenario:
Your friends in college want to go for a Goa tour for 5 days. Everyone is lying at home saying it’s an Industrial Visit. I am sure many of you must have already been in this situation. You are like an important person in the group and everyone is forcing you to go with them. Finally you agree and lie at home, thinking it’s a once in a lifetime tour. Obviously, you ignore the fact that you are missing your Sunday Service where you have responsibilities or the three-days of fasting prayer going on in your church.
Day 2: Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!
If Day 1 was anything to go by, the young team was geared up and ready for another day full of the Holy Spirit. And with the Word for devotion being ‘Be ready for God’s surprises and to surprise the devil’, the anticipation just rose to another level. It went further high when we were told that we would be visiting places where there are no churches yet!
Excitement kept building through the journey as people of God danced and worshipped even in the bus, thus quelling all fears of tired bodies! Even as we waited for police permission at Fullambari to conduct our first street evangelism for the day, youngsters who couldn’t control the fire burning inside them began with the customary song, worship and dance, next to a compound, which incidentally hosted the police station! The gospel skit brought it with the customary laughter and the message behind it, while other young men and women distributed the gospel literature to the audience.
“Whenever you give an evangelist a microphone, you gonna have church.” I’d heard a world famous evangelist declare it at a home-going service of Pastor John Osteen. I was wondering, what would happen if “You send out more than 30 young evangelists with a license to go shout out His Name to the lost!” I got the answer at Mission Aurangabad!
Dates 13th through 15th December 2013 will hold a special place in the hearts of a few young souls from Mumbai. It was, to put it mildly, their tryst with destiny. It was their time to walk into the list of historymakers! For those were the days they revealed the Saviour to the very heart of Maharashtra.
