19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed.

Truth without Love is hypocrisy;
Love without Truth is brutality.

Leviticus 18:22-27
22 “‘Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.
23 “‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.
24 “‘Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. 25 Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. 26 But you must keep my decrees and my laws. The nati…

Mission Trip Meeting Part 1

Sharing the GospelWe believe in Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

Evangelism comes out naturally the motivation is Love.
Give the grace Ephesians 2:8-9

What is your excuse of not sharing?
You only think it's the pastor's job? Ephesians 4:11-12I don't know how to share.I just let my light shine.I am waiting for the right timing.I don't have gift of evangelism - one sign if you have that gift - people are listening to you. Matthew 28:19Fear of rejection - when they reject - you know they reject Christ first and not you.Don't know how to bring it up - find the common ground.They may ask me questions I may not answer - you may not know all the answers but don't worry. Don't answer all questions that are trap. We are the offensive and not the defensive. (Let me finish, ask questions later.)Afraid and Terrified - pray for boldness and guidance.

HE CHOOSE US TO BE BLESSED from Romans 1:1-7

The purpose is to give letter to the Romans.
Romans 5:1 is the key verse
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Although we are living in this World, we are not of this World... We don't own our self, as we are God's property and HIS vessel.

Apostle - are the ambassador, representative of Christ.
Mission - is bringing the Gospel to those who haven't heard it as in missionary.
God wants to use us for this purpose.

before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” ~Jeremiah 1:5

God wrote that all of us will be the beneficiary

GOD is (my) OUR PROTECTOR from Psalm 18

Psalm 18 is a duplicate of Samuel 22.

To know that God is our protector we should know that God is our strength. - God is our helper.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. ~Philippians 4:13
Yeshua means Deliverance
God is worthy of Praise when we are in trouble

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. ~Philippians 4:6

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. ~Psalm 91:1

What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? ~Romans 8:31
We will always go back to God's camp. He is our protector we will call on Him, cry out to Jesus.

"Stay Hopefull" from Acts 27:13-26

Sometimes we get too comfortable but are we prepared when storm comes?

Sometimes we learn in a hard way if we don't listen as one of the prophet named Jonal who was eaten by a big fish. Who cause the storm that time? it was Jonah disobedience.

Cast all your fears upon Him.
Don't hold hopelessness in your life throw it all away and stay hopeful.
Pray and search for scriptures to enlighten our burden.
Don't focus on the storm stay positive.
God treasure us. If you are in Christ we will not be lost. Claim the promises of God.

Jerimiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
