First, I am a sinner saved by grace. As a young boy, I remember going to the altar at my local Church, and accepting Jesus as my personal savior. A guest preacher preached Salvation and I was saved.
I studied the Bible as a teenager, but lost many years in half-truths and wrong interpretations of the Word. There was no proper guidance and hence made many mistakes. Your entire walk with the Lord is dependent on only one thing- your Bible reading. If you get it right, your life decisions will be in the perfect will of God, if you get it wrong, you will land in many pits and ditches. To help others avoid these mistakes, I wrote the article How to Read the Bible (in About us).
To help people see Jesus across the Bible, is my one point agenda in life.
Jesus makes the Bible come alive. Without him, the Word is powerless.
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
Tis’ Grace that brought me safe thus far,
And Grace will lead me home. – John Newton (Amazing Grace).
I am Jabez Muthyala and live in Bangalore, India. Have been a student of the Bible for years, and spend hours in it daily. I play classical piano, love Bach and Beethoven, which helps me in understanding Bible truths clearly. Love playing Hymns, like the way they are sung traditionally, not to a beat which destroys the entire cadence and meaning. Also believe in keeping fit, into cycling and running. Exercising, healthy diet etc are also important part of your walk with the Lord. Remember, Jesus was a very fit guy.
Work as an Investment Banker, helping companies raise capital. I work in the field of Private equity/Venture capital, sit on the Boards of companies. Studied B.E (Computer science) and an MBA from XLRI, Jamshedpur.
I started writing this blog for my friends and family. Hoping that others will benefit too. Please do drop in a line if you feel encouraged or have a suggestion or a question too. As a believer, I need a lot of help from the Lord daily, sometimes to get through a day itself is a big challenge. So would greatly appreciate your prayers for me and my family.
This website is a collective effort and reflects the faith, prayer & love of my friends and family. I am deeply grateful to each one of them for their encouragement and help in my life’s journey. In particular I would like to mention the website team: Jim John (strategy), K.C.George (website design), Jacob Jose (logo design) helped make this a reality.
Am not a scholar or a theologian, but just yet another student of the Bible. Am very grateful to Jesus for giving me the grace to write. May Christ alone be glorified.
