"Be Devoted to God/good" from Titus 3:8

Being in right/correct order is to Be Devoted to God for example if you were to drive a car the correct order is to start the car and drive but if you drive without starting the car you will not get anywhere it will not work…

“Be Devoted to Go(o)d” Titus 3:8
The right order would be God comes first all the time then good works will follow then we are save by grace not by good deeds.
God doesn’t bless us by doing good deeds but by what’s in our faith and character.
After receiving God’s grace we have the decision to make if we continually do good deeds like think about others, make an effort how we can channel the blessings to others.

Remember without God we wouldn’t have anything. Read Psalm 16:2
And John 15:5 => Genuine faith has evidence.

Believing and trusting in Christ.
It is more blessing to give than to receive. Allow God to use you to be a blessing with someone else. Allow yourself to be use by God.
Read 1 Corinthians 3:11
It shows whatever deeds we have is tested not taken for granted doing is building up one another. Avoid foolish controversy and genealogy.

True worshiping God is in the heart and not on any religion or any special day, never go down to argue on Christianity on how we are baptize either “In the name of the Father of the Son and Holy Spirit” or “In Jesus Name”. Read Titus 3:10.

Remember: If someone wants to know about Christ share them your knowledge but if they seem to quarrel or argue with your belief then be quiet, you have nothing to do with them, never argue.

Doing good work is other center, not self centered. (Do not talk about yourself all the time. Putting the spotlight to yourself.)

We all have gifts to share:

  1. Help in spiritually

  2. Give physical needs

  3. Showing love and encouragement

  4. Using spiritual gifts to others, read Ephesians 4:11

  5. Giving to others like prayers, time, encouragement, and more importantly giving forgiveness



Here is a slide show pictures that I took from Sunday Bible Study.




Pastor's Message
Luke 8:18 Therefore take heed how you hear. For whoever has, to him more will be given; and whoever does not have, even what he seems to have will be taken from him.
=the more we know the Bible the more responsible we are to put into practice.

"Don't Doubt" from 1 Samuel 27

Don't Doubt 1 Samuel 27
Last night was the midweek Bible study in Calvary Chapel, the teachings was really in time for my situation not only in office but also in my faith.
“Do not Doubt” 1 Samuel 27 Pastor Ken told us the story of a person with no glamorous clothes, buying 16 cars...

This person goes in one car dealer shop when the sales man look at his physical appearance, the sales man doubt that this man could buy 16 cars.. and so he said “I really don't know if I can sell 16 cars right away how about going to the next car dealer shop?”
and so he went to the next shop, and he was given 16 cars right away since it was paid in cash he was also given a big discount...
the man who bought the cars was a fisherman, and all of them fishermen that had a big catch and savings that they decided to buy cars at the same time so to have big discount. The moral lesson of the story is that if we have doubts good chance of a lifetime can be missed.
That was a very nice story about Doubt told us by Pastor Ken.

Now for my notes:
The word doubt came from double minded, it also means lack of confidence, belief and faith.
doubts -> leads to worry -> leads to forgetting about God -> leads to trusting ourselves -> leads to being atheist. Read Heb 11:6

Being in doubt is being closer to the enemy. Now when I mention “enemy” here it means the temptations of the devil.
It is the Lord where we should run to whenever we have doubts and not on any persons to seek approval, let God be the first to run to for help, and then you seek help to other persons. We have no reasons to doubt God is with us.

Always be on guard against doubt, Never doubt God's promises.

Do not doubt God's purpose in your life.

Satan wants to put you out in ministry to doubt God's plans and God purpose for you. God has good plans for you do not doubt. Read Romans 8:28

Hold on by faith even if we don't understand God's in control he is on the throne. Remember the story of Jesus on the boat with his disciples.

God will never gave up on you. God loves you come back to the Lord.

Pray if you feel any doubt Pray!
Read Phil 4:6

Do not doubt or be anxious of anything. Prayer is the answer read Prob. 3:5-6.

Trust is the key trust in the Lord.

Remember:
Doubt your doubt before you doubt your belief.

"Work for your Salvation" from Titus 3:1

work for your salvation
"Work for your salvation" Titus 3:1
Pastor Ken told us the story of baking a cake, we have to mix the right ingredients to make a perfect cake else it will not be like we wanted it to be...

Surrender our will, our future to god and submit to God's control, give the control to Jesus/God.
We can not be save by being obedient, go to the church every Sunday but to come to the Lord our God by faith and by mercy of Jesus

Ready to do whatever is good (read Ep 2:9)

Act and talk like Christians means we have to be concern of others.

Every step we make, our relationship is a process with the Lord, ask to yourself where are you today with your relationship with the Lord?
for example, a month ago you use to go to the church and practice good deeds but where are you now?...

To slander no one, not to listen to any slander it is also participating with that sin.
To truly love our neighbor is to watch themselves, we should live at peace to all men, even if they attack you, be NOT to have bitterness in them. Do not say anything to defend yourself. Let them have their slander and God will do the rest, "Live at peace in your heart" let God be your defender.

Be considerate to all and stand up for yourself be humble but be in control with humility.
If you receive any award always put the spot light to Jesus.

Change with true repentance, not doing the wrong things we used to do, be sincere with repentance.

It is not wise to live with temporary things of this word (Cor 9, Rom 2:4)

All that matters is your relationship with Lord God and not with your religion.

Remember not all that feels good is right.

We live for him, change from the inside it will finally work things out.

Surrender and repent to have the promise of eternal life.

Pastor's Message
Isaiah 29:13 inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths and honor Me with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but have removed their hearts far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men.
=may we not give God "lip service" and say we love Him with our mouths, but deny Him by our actions.

Be wish Not Foolish Samuel 25

November 5, 2008: “Be Wise Not Foolish” Samuel 25



When I went to the midweek Bible study I was surprise to see all the Christmas decorations in our Calvary Chapel in Obrero. (^_^)

The teachings for that day was “Be Wise Not Fools”
For example it is fool to live for temporary things
And wisdom of this world is foolish to God but the wisdom of the Bible is eternal in short we should study the Bible and learn, so we can be wise to live for God.
Living to please God we are to find joy, peace and satisfaction in life.

Be wish Not Foolish Samuel 25How foolish are we to won something when everything belongs to God?
Being wise is to use the blessing for spiritual development
Learn to give wisely to others.

Quick to listen and slow to speak NOT to give in to anger, and not to give in to emotions. (nako ang hirap nitong gawain minsan)

It is wise to be humble than to be proud.

Overlook each other faults, don’t be guilty of having revenge.
Ask God for wisdom in decisions and choices we make.

Don't Judge

A message from Pastor Ken Pascua:

Salamat ginoo sa imong pulong salamat ginoo sa imong gracia Lord tabangi kami kasabot imong pulong Lord give us wisdom give us understanding help us Lord not just to understand with our mind but with our heart . . . Guide us in your truth tonight Lord in Jesus name Amen.

There is a saying “don’t judge the book by its cover” you don’t know what’s on the inside of the book, I know a some book where you looked the book and you open it up, when you looked inside its empty there is nothing inside its where you put your valuables inside the book so you don’t know what’s in the book and you see this book its about the title but it’s not so we can’t judge the book by its cover. I remember once my cousin told me a story about this when he was playing basketball in high school and they are about to choose who’s the player and there was one player he was short and “and I don’t want him in my team, you can’t play with the big boys,” this short basketball player got the ball and he jump all the way and he slam dunk the basketball. And all of the sudden “I want him in my team” and so much important in spiritual things don’t judge what’s in appearance God is the one who sees the heart.

We have to be careful as Christian “Do not judge

Pastor's Message
Isaiah 63:7 I will tell of the kindness of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the Lord has done for us yes, the many good things He has done for house of Israel, according to His compassion and many kindness.
=may we praise God for all His kindness, good things He has done and compassion. A good God we have.

"Be Teachable" from Titus 2:1-8

"Be Teachable" Titus 2:1-8

The words written here are my notes for November 2, 2008 Bible study.

As the title shows "Be Teachable" means teach ourselves in walk in God's grace. . . We know God's grace tru Bible example in reading Psalm 119:9

We must learn the basic salvation by grace. Learn to also give grace to others if they did you wrong. For if you can't give grace, do you deserve grace from God?

Wisdom is learned tru age as we grow old, anything in this world must be moderate we must be careful read 1 Peter 5:8

God must be #1 we must continue to be trained, be worthy of respect, honorable in character and elder people must be respected, read Lev 19:32.

Have self control, be in control of your self. Example are relationship we know is wrong i.e. lesbian and gay or the 1960 relationship.

Also bad hobbies, too much drinking that you satisfied yourselve for being drunk that just drinking moderately. Smoking which we all know is bad for health. . . Control yourself not be controled by these.

Justification. Be in love meaning by helping others with love but not expecting anything in return. We need to learn about Love.

Endurance. Hold to your faith. Don't give up.

Don't be shy if we have gray hair read Prov 16:31

Be modest, gentle, quiet in spirit not to slander meaning gossip, talk maliciously. Never share bad information even if it's true. Do not share negative information about someone or gossip a person nor accept or hear a bad information. If someone wants to share Say "I don't want to hear it".

Ladies look at what you wear if your not in business Do not advertise. Young men control your sexual desire, guard your eyes, do not put yourself in the situation where you fall into sexual immorality

Read Ep 4:29

Be careful on what words to use. Bad words and green jokes be careful.
