"Honor Christ" from Hebrews 3

Image
How do we honor Christ?
Do we have to create/or pray to a Christ like statue everyday?
or go to church everyday?

"Honor Christ"
Honor Christ by the way we think, we are holy through our faith in Jesus, we accept his words and follow it.

We are not supposed to store-up things of this world, always saying "this is mine" because our final home is in heaven; Everything belongs to God...

Fix your thoughts on Jesus, think carefully who you're imitating, is it the world or Christ?

We can honor God by not worrying the things of this world like what were going to eat, dress, have for tomorrow, etc... Let God provide.

I can remember before when my salary (money) is almost used up, I was worried what I'm going to eat for the next two days because salary will be due in two days time, I just said "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus please provide for me", I was surprise to know that my purchase on BPI credit card had a free meal in Greenitch hmmm yummy! (^_^)
And then the blog I vote…

"Christmas is for Jesus" from Luke 2:1-7

Image
Every Christmas season; we are so busy planning Christmas party, gift to buy, making a wish-list, budgets for groceries and etc...

But have you ever thought what is Christmas all about?

It is like an example story of a baby baptism, everybody was so happy to drink and eat and they have forgotten what the celebration is all about and left the baby in one room...

forgotten...

In our life we must be careful the true meaning of Christmas is for Jesus, to put him on number 1 priority, don't get caught up in the things of the world being so busy that you forgot to go to Church, read the Bible and pray.

The road to hell is wide but the road to Heaven is narrow, only few are saved.

If you put Jesus first the world is going to call you names they will think you are weird and (in Tagalog mapagkunwari)

Let your petitions be prayed to Jesus and not to worry about life and celebrate Jesus as center of your life then prosperity comes.

The meaning of Bethlehem is House of bread.

No matter how big your si…

"Sin is Deadly" from 1 Samuel 31

Image
There was a story of a scorpion and the Dog...
the scorpion said to the dog "let's cross the lake will you swim and I be on your back" and the dog replied "what if you bite me in the middle of the lake?",
the scorpion said "no! I wouldn't do that because both of us will drown",
and so the dog agreed with the scorpion, but in the middle of the lake the scorpion bite the dog.
the dog asked "why did you bite me?" and the scorpion replied "its part of my nature", while the dog was about to drown the scorpion already jump to the land.

And so as the title shows "Sin is Deadly" from 1st Samuel 31;

In this chapter where Saul started to commit sin because of pride, disobedience from God, jealousy and anger.

If we always think we could fall into sins then we are on guard against sin.
The world would think "we can do anything as long as nobody gets hurt then its ok" but that can affect someone with out knowledge it affects …

"Don’t Drift Away" from Hebrews 2:1-4

Image
...From the continuation of my post in Aice Nice Concepts in Careers

Pastor Ken told us the story about riding a boat or ferry, what we should always have are:

A life jacket – incase of emergency we can stay float till the rescue comes
Anchor on the Boat or Ferry – if ever the engines get damage at lease it can not drift away with an anchor.

To bare this in mind we should not neglect our relationship with God and live a righteous life, just like the boat Jesus is our anchor.

Another thing is no matter how strong our relationship with God, never think you’re strong enough trusting yourself that you will not be tempted, this is when the Devil will try to do everything to destroy your faith.

When the storm of life comes we hold on to the Lord, hold on to God’s faith because the longer we walk with the Lord, the more we say “I know all that line from the Bible. . . “ and I don’t need to go to the church to worship, and you will drift away little by little without our knowledge and you will st…

"Surrender" from Hebrews 1-12

Image
In Japanese war they didn't surrender even the first atomic bomb was blasted in their country... they surrendered until the second atomic bomb in which they have too much disaster...
"Surrender" Hebrews 1-12

We can fall down to the rock or just surrender freely without hardship. God deserve to be number 1, we only need to surrender to him.

Read John 1 and John 3:16

Salvation is a free gift we only need to believe in Jesus; Live our life for God, Love him with all your heart and soul.
read Galatians 4:4-5.

Actions speak louder than words its thru works not spoken we can prove we surrender... for example we can make things for only a certain purpose like chair or any material things but God made us to have our choices of purpose either to follow our own will or to follow God's purpose for us, (to follow God). Ask yourself "Why God made us?" it is for us to find out; to follow God's purpose; to surrender in his purpose.

The moon is the reflection of the sun durin…

"Our Enemy is not our Friend" 1 Samuel 29

Image
The word "enemy" mention here is meant as "sin" or "temptation" of the world.
Always be on guard against the "Enemy". . .

Before anything else let us talk about what communion bring us:
Communion help us remember to keep away from Sin.
Communion help us in sharing faith and get ready for his return. Through communion this tells us to repent and be saved from sin...

We need to be close to our friends not in the enemy (the things of this world)... be on fellowship it will help us to be strong in our faith, the Enemy will always have temptation for us to fail in attending fellowship i.e. too busy, have more important things to do, but God said in Ten Commandments "You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me"

The enemy will try to pull us far from the Lord.

Don't look like the world be car…

"Forgive in Love" from Philemon

Image
Remember how Jesus went to so much suffering but he said “Father forgive them for they don’t know what they have done”

“Forgive in Love” Philemon
We have to see the need to forgive even if they have gossip about you or borrowed money didn’t pay. . .
In forgiveness we are family of God; sometimes you treat strangers better than your family taken for granted when they have done mistake.
And you don’t forgive. Forgiveness is unconditional we have to forgive and forget.

We have to remember in family of God we need to pray and look out for one another. We are not competing but helping one another, we need to forgive not revenge.

Grace in peace means subject of forgiveness as God gives grace in us.

If someone hurt you, remember grace of God as you don’t deserve it but he gave it to you. Live at peace at all men; we need forgiveness in family of God specially in your immediate family.

In sickness Jesus said “you are forgiven” in order to heal, so if you can’t forgive neither does your sickness be h…
