  • Big and Little too

My God shall supply all your need according to
His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians
419) My family was heading along the road one
Friday morning to attend the church worship
service, when we felt the wagging feeling along
the way. A tire has gone flat. As we moved to
the service road and started to figure out on how
we will change the tire suddenly a police car
stop next to us and two big guys jumped out,
assessed the situation and cheerfully helped us
to change the tire. Thank God my family reached
the worship service on time, and later on we
realized that we are not following a simple tire
check up before driving! The preaching has been
delivered to a small congregation. We might think
God is too busy in large and more important
things than to be concerned about a flat tire.
But His promise to provide the needs of His
people covers little things as well as big
ones. God cares for small thing - He is the
same God who helped Elisha to find the missing
barrowed ax head (2 King 65-7). - He is the one
who supplied food for the faithful widow (1 King
178-16). - He provided the wine at a small town
wedding (John 21-10) - He meets our needs
daily. Think back over the past few days and see
how the Lord took care of some minor problems in
your life? Has He solved some small bombarding
problem? Has He provided some simple answer to
your question? Thank Him! For everyday is an
unfolding grace and love we received, truly that
He provides big and little things for those who
love Him. If God paints the sky in azure hue,
Will He not then care for me and you?

  • The Joy of a True Servant

The world and perhaps our own human instinct will
always dictate us that the key to happiness is by
getting what we want, to be served by others and
to experience greatness in everything in this
world. But God actually offers us more than
happiness, He wants us to receive and experience
joy! One of the most important features of a
joyous life is by becoming a true servant of our
Lord Jesus Christ and this was exemplified in the
life of apostle Paul. It is interesting to note
that while Paul writes his letter to the church
in Philippi, he was at a very depressing
situation, being imprisoned in Rome, he was
alone, lost all his privileges and was highly
criticized by his enemies and yet he was able to
speak of joy and rejoicing in the whole four
chapters of Philippians. In Philippians chapter
2, Paul speaks of his joy that came through
serving. He clearly understood his calling and
his purpose of being a servant of the most High
God. Here in this chapter, Paul speaks of a very
important truth on what God has done for all of
us. Jesus, the Son of God came into this world to
give his life and to serve us! -Who being in
very nature is God but did not consider equality
with God … and taken the very nature of a servant
(Phil 26-7). Like apostle Paul who has found
the true joy in serving, even to the point of
death, may we all accept the challenge of
answering Gods call to be His true followers and
servants. May we also learn how to truly serve
one another as what God has instructed us to be.
True joy and greatness can also be found in
servant hood. When we all finally realize that
our calling is to serve, then we can expect our
lives to have an irresistible impact on this
world.

  • Happy in the Lord Jesus

Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a
mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to
him, and he began to teach them, saying Blessed
(happy) are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the
kingdom of heaven… (Matthew 51-3) The book of
Matthew open the ministry of Jesus towards his
attitude on the law, it shows his interpretation
and how to respond to it. Jesus stated his stands
concerning a life attitude that pleases God and
at the same time pleases the person who will do
it. For Jesus, the position, authority and
prestige is not important in His kingdom-what
matters in His kingdom is how we faithfully obey
God wholeheartedly. The sermon on the mount
challenged the proud, self righteous and
legalistic people in His days and exposed their
mistakes on their interpretations. The sermon
still takes the reality of today where people
place their heart in the things they thought will
make them happy. What makes the people happy
today? a. People depends on pleasure and
prestige to make them happy b. People depends on
their position and author1ity to make them
happy What makes the Christian happy today? a.
Christians are happy because God loves them b.
Christian are happy as they follow Jesus Here we
find the two basic sources of happiness one
offered by the world and other offered by God and
the truth is Worldly happiness is not permanent
for it will not last and gives no pleasure to God
while Happiness from God will last and have no
bound and we as a believers must be wise always
to follow what could bring pleasure to our
Lord. Be like Jesus, this I long, in the home,
in the throng Be like Jesus, all they long! Im
to belong! Definitely… I would be like Him!

  • The Wise and Foolish Builders

Have you ever come to a point in your life you
wished your decisions in the past would remain
just that..... a thing of the past? Foolish as
it might sound, most often than not, we wished
for the hands of time to turn back. Perhaps if
we would be given a second chance we would be
able to do better. Such big words.....do better.
If we would continue to just rely on our strength
and our abilities, we could never do better, much
less become wiser. In the parable of the Foolish
and Wise Builders (Mathew 724-27 / Luke
647-49), the former could be commended for his
effort to build his house. In our world, we could
translate this as a disciple who takes the effort
to listen to the Word of God, and memorizing each
and every passage in the Bible. It's like having
several volumes of different encyclopedias in our
heads. We know so much about the scriptures that
we could quote every passage there is in the
Bible Sad to say, sometimes we even use passages
from the Bible to win an argument. But it's not
enough that we know passages of the Bible, or
that we listen each Friday to the sermon being
preached. If we would like to become a better
person, we must be like the Wise builder. The
wise builder did not just memorize or listen, he
planned and built his house on solid rock. He
laid his house on solid foundation, on Jesus
Christ, his character. What is so distinct in
the character of our Lord, Jesus Christ, that it
is wise to build our character, our house on
it? OBEDIENCE!!! His time on earth was one
obedience after another to the will of our Father
in Heaven. In this world, we will always be
subjected to all kinds of storms. There will come
a time when money would be scarce, a loved one
would pass away, we would lose our jobs, we would
have broken relationship, etc.,. But, if our
house is built on solid rock, if we are wise
builders, we will endure the test of times. In
spite of the storms, we can be joyful, we can
still count our blessings, we can still give
forgiveness, we can still be obedient. We will
be like our foundation, Jesus Christ, obedient to
the Father for we know HE IS IN CONTROL.

  • Learn from the

Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command
but an old one, which you have had since the
beginning. This old command is the message you
have heard. (1 john 27-8a)
  • MASTER

One of the oldest teachings in the Bible is
love, it started since the beginning until the
day of Jesus. Why love is never an ending
expression of Gods affection to His people?
Because as a human being we associate to people
around us, in our home, in our work place, on the
street and in the church. The people we use to
meet can either uplift us or hinder us in our
spiritual growth and because of these reasons
Jesus expressed the importance of love to one
another as he personally command it to the
community of believers, it is also a warning to
us in choosing our friends, what relationship to
avoid and what to pursue. Here are some tips to
share your love. a. Find a Close Christian
Friend. A true Christian friend will help get
through in times of trouble, a person who will
not abandon you in times of distress. A friend
who validate the meaning of Gods love. b. Avoid
Relationship That Could Cause You to Sin. Bad
company corrupts good character. Choose friend
who are morally upright, knows how to control
tongue, humble, compassionate, not compromising
person but fears God. c. Look for Friendship
that Honours God. A person who walks in the
precepts of Christ, filled with the Holy Spirit,
a person who teaches us to be more closer to
God Wisdom of Jesus when talking about love
will not stand by itself when we do not learn to
love or even not consider how to practice it.
When I knew some truth…that is information, but
when I exercise it…that is wisdom! Open my eyes,
that I may see wondrous things from Your law.
Psalm 11918

  • Finding Happiness

I just want to be happy! Many a times we find
ourselves preoccupied with this sentiment. We are
always looking for something or making plans for
things that would make us happy. We always think
that when we finally attain the things that we
want to achieve, they wouldthen produce the
endless happiness that we have been looking for.
I remember the first time when I finally
achieved my dream of working abroad. Following a
years working experience in Manila after I
graduated from university, an opportunity knocked
on my door to work in a luxury ship based in Hong
Kong. It was the happiest moment of my life when
I set foot on that very huge passenger cruise
liner! I knew that I will be working as a
croupier but I never had the idea of the place
that I will be working. The ships interior can
be compared to a 5-star hotel and one would never
think that they are in a ship when on board! The
first few months working in that ship was indeed
the best experience I could have imagined during
those times, but gradually, there was a strong
feeling of loneliness and conviction in my heart
that the kind of work I have and the place where
I am, was not the one that was meant for me. That
was the time when I encountered God in a deeper
way and eventually, my heart and my mind agreed
that it was the time that I need to leave that
job. I was no longer happy. Happiness can be
an elusive thing. There were also many times in
our lives that as soon as we finally see that our
cup of happiness is full, people, things and
unlikely events will suddenly come our way
unexpectedly and turn things upside down.

Finding Happiness … continuation
In The Sermon on the Mount, our Lord Jesus Christ
has given us a picture of happiness in a very
different way. Jesus began the beatitudes with
the phrase, blessed are, which practically means
happiness or deep joy. Blessed are … The poor in
spirit Those who mourn The meek Those who hunger
and thirst for righteousness The merciful The
pure in heart The peacemakers Those who are
persecuted because of righteousness You when
people insult you for the sake of Jesus It is
very important for us to truly understand how
Jesus described His perspective of happiness.
The beatitudes may be the exact opposite of what
the world dictates, but developing the very
character that Jesus prescribed will guarantee
achieving that happiness that we have been
looking for. All of us still have unfulfilled
dreams, the world will also continue to impose
its standards of happiness upon us but I pray
that we will all continue to develop into the
kind of person that God wants us to be and
receive the blessings that He desires for us to
achieve.

  • MY FRIEND WILL HEAR ME
  • WHEN I CALL

For since we were restored to friendship with
God by the death of his Son while we were still
his enemies, we will certainly be delivered from
eternal punishment by his life. So now we can
rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with
God-all because of what our lord Jesus Christ has
done for us in making us friends of God. (Romans
510-11 NLT) Some people says Friendship is
more meaningful than any relationship, that is
why counsellors used to encouraged the people to
maintain it in every relationship for friendship
is based on mutual understanding, it can have the
openness to one another without fear, they can
exposed their witnesses and yet the others are
prepared to dealt with it. The business in
friendship is to know each other, the more they
know each other the more trust they can give.
Business also in friendship is communication, the
more they talk the more they become close.
Another business in friendship is to help one
another were this is the basic proof of loving
one another. How enemies treat each other?
First, they are not concern to one another and so
they will not listen to one another. Second, they
will talk with hypocrisy and put some hidden
agenda on every deal. Third, there will be no
peaceful solution in their agenda. Being a
friend of God is an assurance that He will hear
us when we call upon his name because it is His
desire to be with us, for friends have the
enthusiasm to know each other when they talk,
they are excited and love to hear from one
another and they are willing to extend their hand
for help. for answered prayer we thank you,
Lord We know Youre always there To hear us
when we call on You Were grateful for Your care

  • One Step at a Time

4 So Abram left, as the LORD had told him and
Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years
old when he set out from Haran. 5 He took his
wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, all the possessions
they had accumulated and the people they had
acquired in Haran, and they set out for the land
of Canaan, and they arrived there. 6 Abram
traveled through the land as far as the site of
the great tree of Moreh at Shechem. At that time
the Canaanites were in the land. 7 The LORD
appeared to Abram and said, "To your offspring
a I will give this land." So he built an altar
there to the LORD, who had appeared to him. 8
From there he went on toward the hills east of
Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the
west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar
to the LORD and called on the name of the LORD. 9
Then Abram set out and continued toward the
Negev. Genesis 124-9 Some Christian are
panicking or becoming nervous when they heard the
word Obedience to God, they will try to avoid
the issue or make some alibi so as not to be
confronted by that word, and it is so hard for
them to move on for they can see a huge task
ahead of them. In Genesis 124 God spoke to a man
name Abram and ask him to follow Gods word as
the Lord had told him to do. Abraham knew that
his faith is not a cloudy one, but he doesnt
know at first on how to do the first step of
obedience, but he knew that he needs to, he needs
to do it carefully and surely and not by running
around and make himself busy showing to God that
he is trying his best to follow him.

One Step … continuation
When Abraham left the city of Ur, this became his
first step of faith towards obeying God but one
step of faith always leads to another, and
another, and another, maybe it will take months
or even years to travel but it doesnt matter, he
is convinced that he needs to do the first step.
Progressive obedience is not forceful but by one
step at a time like what Abraham did, by
following one step at a time! Genesis 12
narrated his steps heading to his
destination Verse 4 Abraham started
out… Verse 5 Abraham started out… Verse
6 Abraham traveled through… Verse 8 Abraham
moved on… Verse 9 Abraham moved on from place
to place… Gods desire for Abraham and to us is
that the principle of faith should operate
throughout every part of our lives progressively.
He wants us to trust and obey Him, not only
spiritually but also with our daily lives. Being
a follower of Jesus, we can say that business is
good but obedience is always the best for the one
that pleases God. Step by step where moving
forward, Little by little were taking
grounds… A Christian Song

"Then God said, 'Yes, but your wife Sarah will
bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I
will establish my covenant with him as an
everlasting covenant for his descendants after
him." (Genesis 1719) Many Bible names reflect
the person's identity, often describes important
facts about one's past and hopes for the future.
The choice of the name Isaac (means 'he laughs'),
for Abraham and Sarah's son must have created a
variety of feeling in them each time it was
spoken. At time it must have recalled their
shocked laughter at God's announcement that they
would be parents in their oild age. On the other,
it must have brought back the joyful feelings of
receiving their long-awaited answer to their
prayer for a child. Most important, it was a
testimony of God's power in making His promises a
reality. Isaac's life bridged the lives of his
two graet family members Abraham his father and
Jacob his son. Written below are some significant
facts about Isaac as it is also connected to his
family. a. He was a miracle child born to Sarah
and Abraham when she was 90 years old and he was
100 years old. Indeed a miracle child! b. He was
the first descendant in fulfillment of God's
promise to Abraham c. He displayed great
patience and been rewarded. Many Christians do
not know the meaning of their names and their
lives as well until they met the Lord Jesus who
brought them to the family of God, where they are
now part of the covenant which has been given to
the father of Isaac, that through the faith of
Abraham we will also be blessed just like
Isaac. Have you seen the meaning of life through
Jesus?

  • CURSE TO BLESSING

Has anyone heard of a person who spent a lot of
times in the ditches or pits of life and yet
he knew how to take lemons and make a lemonade
out of them? Such a man was Joseph. The life
story of this man is a study of trials, yet it is
also a study of Gods timing and purpose in our
lives. It is a study of how what seem to be
curses can become blessings. In our journey
through life, we undergo various trials. We spend
a lot of times in the pits or ditches. Trials
happen to everyone, no one is immune to it not
even us Christians. If truth be told, Christians
suffer a lot more trials in life because we are
tested for our faith. Whos makings are these
trials that are placed in our lives? Some trials
are of our own making. Sometimes we will walk
right into those that God would rather we dont
go into, but remember He has given us free-will,
so He will not interfere. Free will is what
separate us from all of Gods other creations.
So, God will not interfere with our free will.
Sometimes, we just do plain stupid things when we
take things into our own hands! Look at
Joseph! Some trials are God given for a
purpose. Some trials that we have to undergo
maybe what God wants us to go through so he can
make the preparations in our lives and in the
lives of others for the fulfillment of the plan
Hes given us. In short, He has a purpose for it.
If we read Romans 828 we might get a glimpse of
how God plans for His purposes. It says 28 And
we know that in all things God works for the good
of those who love him, who have been called
according to his purpose. Some trials may be
caused by the Enemy, the Devil. 1 Peter 58 - Be
self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil
prowls around like a roaring lion looking for
someone to devour.
Continued on next page
14
Curse to Blessing … continuation
Yet most of the time though, these trials or
situations are simply a combination of all three.
We dont need to be reminded that our God is
all-knowing and all-powerful. He already knew
about some of the dumb decisions, or choices we
will make even when we are just hatching them in
our minds. God is already aware of the enemys
plans to derail or side track us. Sometimes the
situations that we go through are a combination
of our own choosing and His allowing it so that
we will not only learn a lesson but also so that
He will be glorified. God uses circumstances in
our lives that may seem to be curses, but He uses
these for a purpose. Trials are not just
something to endure, but are preparation for what
God has for us. He may want us to grow in
character, to mature as He did to Joseph. Often
times the young in age and those still young in
Christ would rather skip the preparation time
needed in the Word and immediately get immersed
into Gods service and falter half way though
because of immaturity. God has a purpose for the
trials in our lives just as He had for
Joseph. But what we do with the trials in our
lives, how we react to them, influences or
determines also how long we will stay stuck in
there. We only have two choices when we come to
situations in life We can grow or we can choke!
We can give up or we can give more. God gives us
trials but it will be up to us to make something
of it. He surely has a purpose for it, but how
we deal with it counts a lot. What do we do when
we are handed lemons in life? Should we let them
rot, or should we make lemonade? Joseph made
lemonade when he was given lemons and the curses
in his life became blessings. God blessed him
because he did not compromise his integrity and
his relationship with the Lord.

  • Moments of Weakness

Sin is a lifelong struggle in the life of every
believer. Every human being has been under the
curse of sin as a result of the disobedience of
our first parents. Throughout the entire Bible,
we have seen the account of many people who had
been tempted, enticed, failed and fallen into sin
and we all learned from them a very important
truth God is Holy and He will not tolerate sin
to prevail. King David, a man which has been
regarded after Gods own heart also failed and
tumbled into the pit of sin. While looking into
the life of David, we can all agree that God uses
Him as a type of Christ, and yet he violated the
law of God, explicitly and knowingly. Through
many chapters of Scriptures weve seen the
qualities of David being extolled, but in
chapters eleven and twelve of 2nd Samuel, we will
see the story of his failures and the
repercussions of the sins that He had
committed. While we look into this dark moment
in the life of King David, there are four lessons
that we can learn and apply in our lives at the
present time. First, we must understand that sin
always deceives. Sin always promises something
that it cannot deliver. When we hear these
promises, we are tempted to give in, to accept
the deception and eventually justify our actions.
Second, we need to know that sin always destroys.
Sin destroys our relationships to man and to God,
sin destroys what is best in us and sin destroys
whatever we love most. Third, we must not forget
that sin is always discovered. In the long run,
we will always see that there are really no
secret sins. As Jesus states, There is nothing
covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden
that will not be known. Accordingly, whatever you
have said in the dark shall be heard in the
light, and what you have whispered in the inner
rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
(Luke 122,3). And lastly, we have to live in the
truth that a confessed sin is always forgiven.
When we come to God with complete humility and
with a broken heart, when we call out to God
asking for His mercy, when we truly depend only
on the blood of Jesus to cover all our sins, God
never turns his ear away from us. God always
listens. We all could be persons of character
and integrity like David, and without an apparent
warning, we suddenly destroy ourselves through
the choice of gratifying our sudden lusts and
accepting the lure of sin. God has purposely
given us the full account of the life of David so
we may deeply understand the holiness of God and
how He wanted us to live a holy life and despise
sin. When God shows the sin in your heart,
confess it and know the joy of living a blameless
life before Him. Praise and thanks be to God for
all our confessed sins are forgiven by the blood
of our Lord Jesus Christ!

  • DREAM HIGH

Dan 610 Now when Daniel learned that the decree
had been published, he went home to his upstairs
room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem.
Three times a day he got down on his knees and
prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had
done before. True that bible character stories
are written for us to relate our life to them.
Dreams are ticket to prominence and just like
Joseph Daniel raised to prominence with His gift
of dreams. Dan. 610. Daniel showed the
continual struggle between the church and the
world, between Christ and the enemy, between the
believer and the unbelieving world. It shows the
wicked world seeks to overthrow and destroy the
church. Ministry begins with a God given dream
engrave to church heart and mind. As children of
God we ought to be visionaries and dreamers
toward His plan and direction. Daniels life was
an example driven by an uncompromised character,
excellent spirit and habitual Prayer. Habitual,
private, sincere prayer is the calling and a need
of everyone specially children of God. Prayer,
personal and regular, is not merely a recommended
idea or merely a suggestion of the living God.
But it is the command of God and is our need. It
forms the very backbone of our spiritual life. We
must come personally before the face of God, for
we are pilgrims and strangers. Walking here below
on this earth without seeking Him is impossible.
We Christians are not simply one who has
different opinions about moral issues. Neither
simply one who has different preferences or a
different temperament. But one who is implanted
the life of heaven, by the grace of God. That
life should always be needing to look up to God
for its refreshment, must talk and one that must
receive grace through communing with God. Is
talking to God our sincere habit? Impossible
Dreams can be realities in prayers. Remember, it
is mandate from God. It is a choice not an option.

  • HEROES OF FAITH

To the angel of the church in Smyrna write
These are the words of him who is the First and
the Last, who died and came to life again. I know
your afflictions and your poverty-yet you are
rich! (Revelation 28-9a) Many Christians know
the heroes of the Old Testament like Samson,
Gideon, Deborah and many others but not aware of
post Jesus time heroes. The first and second
centuries was the time of severe Christian
persecution, many have been tortured and killed
and one of them who stood up and had a big impact
to the lives of the early Christians was
Polycarp. Who is Polycarp? - Polycarp
was called The Father of the Christian Faith.
He was a disciple of apostle John who lived
between 70 to 155 AD and worked in the church in
Smyrna. Some sources believed that he sat with
other apostles in hunger to know more personally
about Jesus. Just like the other apostles, he
wrote letters also to churches and individuals
and encouraged them on their faith and corrected
them in any false teaching that crawled inside
the church. - Polycarp is A Martyr for
Truth. Many people were imprisoned because of
bad things they have done but Polycarp is
different for he was arrested on the charge of
being a Christian by the Romans of which the only
escape for torture and death is to proclaim
Caesar is Lord. To this Polycarp responded,
"Eighty-six years I have served Christ, and He
never did me any wrong. How can I blaspheme my
King who saved me?" Steadfast in his stand for
Christ, Polycarp refused to compromise his
beliefs, and thus, was burned alive at the stake.
Christian heroes were best-known not because of
how blessed they were how inspiring preaches
they have delivered or theological prayer they
have uttered but simply on how they have
displayed their unyielding faith in the Lord
Jesus Christ. Polycarp, like many other
Christians to this day, was only able to die for
Christ because he lived for Christ. His life was
radically transformed by the work of the Holy
Spirit the desires, worries, pains and fears of
this world no longer bound him. Polycarp's life
and death provides an inspirational example for
all Christians. He gave his earthly life for
Christ, and in the midst of his sacrifice, he
gained eternal life.

  • Come to Save

One Christian exclaimed it God save me!! I am
becoming more closer to God each day, I have
learned to worship him with all my heart, I have
learned how to pray and intercede for other
people, I am now active in the ministry and I am
filled with joy then she stopped and asked the
pastor what is next? One of the greatest
blessings of the Christian life is to actually
lead someone to Jesus Christ. The good news will
serve as good news when Christians learns to
share it. It is also good news that God wants to
use you and me, Jesus wants us to speak to others
and let them know about Christ. This wonderful
mandate is called as the great commission, for
Jesus did not only want us to worship HIM or to
pray to God alone but one of his main purpose of
calling us is for us to spread the good news. The
scripture says when one soul comes back to God
then the whole heaven rejoice! How can I share
this good news? a. You need to have a changed
heart with Jesus enthroned (John 91-41) b. You
need to be open on Gods leading (Acts 84-8) c.
You need to know Gods heart according to His
word (John 316) d. You need to know the simple
message of love and forgiveness (1 Cor 21-5) e.
You need to share your changed life (Acts
61-23) Christianity is base on love and
compassion, we learn how to love God and how He
was us to have compassion for the lost. For God
so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so
that everyone who believes in him will not perish
but have eternal life. God did not send his Son
into the world to condemn it, but to save it.
John 316-17 (NLT) Lord, as I worship, as I
pray… lead me to the lost soul each day.

  • VICTORY IN
  • J E S U S

As a believer, what victory do we have in Jesus?
When we have victory in Jesus we have victory
over sin. None of us deserve forgiveness, but
because of Gods grace, we are saved! This is the
amazing thing about grace! God loves us so much
that He willingly took our sins to Calvary and
nailed them to the cross. Romans 323 says, For
all have sinned and fall short of the glory of
God. He bore the burdens of our sins so that we
may have victory in Him through the blood that He
shed on the cross. And by dying on the cross, He
effectively conquered Death. By dying and rising
again, Jesus took away the power of death over us
for good, once and for all! This means that all
of us who have placed our faith in Jesus Christ
never ever have to fear death. Why? Because He
has conquered it for us. The sting of death is
gone. He has pulled its stinger! He has given
us, His children victory over death! It says in
1 Cor. 1555-57 "Death is swallowed up in
victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where,
O death, is your sting?" The sting of death is
sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks
be to God, who gives us the victory through our
Lord Jesus Christ. As believers we do not have
to be afraid of death! Glory to GOD, Jesus was
not defeated that day at Calvary! No doubt Satan
had his fleeting moment of gloating only to be
defeated resoundingly the moment Jesus rose out
of the tomb! Death was not the end but only the
beginning of what would be the most glorious
victory for all! John 1125 says, I am the
resurrection and the life. He who believes in me
will live, even though he dies. Because of His
death, He transformed our hearts and minds, and
gave us the Holy Spirit to guide us. And not only
through His abounding mercy did He forgave us, He
also have forgotten our sins completely! He
graciously wiped the slate clean! This makes me
call to mind the song Amazing Grace.How precious
did that grace appear. The hour I first believed,
my chains are gone. I've been set free. My God,
my Savior has ransomed me and like a flood His
mercy rains unending love, Amazing grace. Jesus
is waiting and willing to forgive us of our sins!
Thank God for His victory!

  • Passing on the Good News

Last Friday during our prayer service, one of the
songs that we sang was The Mission which is one
of the songs that ministered to me when I first
came to know the Lord. While we were singing this
song, I remembered the time in my early Christian
life where I almost wanted to share the love of
Christ to everyone that I knew to my family, to
my friends and even to a complete stranger who
sat beside me while riding a bus on my way to
school. There was that fire and passion in
passing on the Good News that I have received
from the Lord. Sadly, along the way in my
Christian walk, that fire and passion somehow
diminished because of some circumstances,
disobedience and personal desires that I had in
my heart that was not in the will of the Lord.
But I thank and praise God for He allowed me to
draw back to Him and understand my real purpose
in life One of the greatest tragedies in this
life is for someone who has received Gods
salvation and dies without being able to pass on
the good news to anyone. The Christian life is
not only about receiving the forgiveness of God,
having our names written in the book of life and
one of these days die and then go to heaven. In
between that moment and now is our responsibility
to live out our lives to make an impact and tell
the people what God has done in our lives. God
has entrusted us all who has been redeemed by the
Lord to pass on the good news. During this
difficult moment of economic crisis where we
almost hear of bad news everyday, we as followers
of the Most High have the greatest news that we
can share to the people, the gospel of Jesus
Christ that gives hope, a whole new future and
new eternal destiny! I pray that all of us will
continue to have that burden to the people who
have not encountered the Lord. I also hope and
pray that we all continue to become a blessing to
other people in many different ways and be able
to pass on the good news of our Lord Jesus to all
the people who come across in our lives. God
surely has brought us all together for a
wonderful reason and purpose in fulfilling His
divine plan of salvation to mankind. To love
the lord our God, is the heartbeat of our
mission The spring from which our service
overflows Across the street or around the
world The missions still the same Proclaim and
live the truth In Jesus name! May our Lord help
us to become a people who live the gospel day by
day sharing our faith, passing on the Good News,
a message that needs to be shouted to the whole
world!
