6.LOYALTY

Dr.DGS Dhinakaran was a man of loyalty . He stood faithful in good times and bad times. He shared both our joys as well as our sorrows . He was not a fair weather friend who abandoned us in difficult times. He was loyal in his relationships.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES
****************************

JOHN 13:1
Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.


7.LEGACY

Dr.DGS Dhinakaran has left behind a great legacy for us to follow . He was a legend in our generation and future generations would be amazed to know such a person existed in this world. A turning point in his life was when he heard the challenge given by Dr.T.L.Osborn on the last day of the historic crusade in Madurai in 1961 . Dr.T.L.Osborn challenged everyone that God can use them also in the same way with sign, wonders and miracles . Dr.DGS Dhinakaran took this challenge seriously and sought the Lord fervently until he was endued with power from on high and the rest is history.

The legacy of our Beloved Bro.Dr.DGS Dhinakaran is surely a challenge to everyone of us that God can use us also in the same way. We must follow his legacy and seek God like he did and serve God like he did and the Lord will use each one of us to build His kingdom.

Let us uphold the family left behind by our dear Bro.Dr.DGS Dhinakaran , especially Mrs. Stella Dhinakaran , Dr.Paul Dhinakaran and the family members in our prayers as they continue the ministry of Jesus Calls and Karunya University . May the Lord comfort them and strengthen them and take them from strength to strength and use them mightily for His glory.
