” You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised” (Hebrews 10:36, NIV).
God loves persistence. He honors diligence. When you diligently do the will of God, obeying His Word and following His commands, it’s like knocking on the door of His promises. He is faithful, and He will open that door! Maybe you’re already doing all you know to do today—don’t give up! Perseverance will carry you to the promise. Perseverance keeps on asking and keeps on knocking. Perseverance looks away from discouragement and distractions and keeps looking toward God. It has a voice that says things like, “No weapon formed against me shall prosper! I know God is for me! I am more than a conqueror through Jesus!”
Today, stay faithful to follow God’s Word, and remember, every step of obedience is another knock on the door of His promises! He will hear you, and He will answer. He will open up doors that no man can shut and lead you into the life of victory He has prepared for you!
Glorious days of leisure and play..
but not for those praise and worship members who devote their time in practicing for the songs on the service, as well as the choir members.
Not for the Sunday School teachers who give free soul food for those who need it.
Not for the Pastors who finally will be able to put into words what they have studied.
Not for God who knows a lot of people will be talking to Him.
But this is actually the best part of the week for us.
We love weekends!
It’s been months nag-start akong mapansin na madaming Christian bloggers dito sa Tumblr. Madami ding non-sectarian at mga bloggers na madaming kaibigan. Napaisip ako nun, “gusto ko pag umattend ako ng meet-up mag-woworship kami.” Gusto ko gumawa ng group, na puro Christian Bloggers pero di ko alam kung paano ako magsisimula.
Last Wednesday I decided na I will to start to act. Bahala na, kahit di ko alam ang magiging outcome. I prayed hard as in, I almost cried. Gusto ko kase may magawa para Sakanya kahit maliit lang na bagay. I created a FB group. Nung mga unang oras mga 20+ pa lang kami sabi ko nun.. “Lord, amazing!” Imagine, 20 pa lang naamaze na ko?
But right now, as I am writing this we are 104 simula pa lang ng 3rd day ng group! Super amazing talaga! Naniniwala na ko, step by step we are changing the world Christian bloggers! Excited na ko sa mga susunod pang mangyayari. Just remember na, we joined the group because of God and nothing else, okay?
Let’s meet (up) SOON ya’ll!
God loves me! / Mahal ako ng Diyos!
No. But what is middle Ground? Middle Ground is being neutral, eto yung playing safe ka lang sa lahat ng bagay, you don’t have your own opinion because you are scared that you will get criticisms. Sinasabi ng iba na hindi naman daw sila playing safe, open minded lang daw sila. Weh?
Like, for example the issue of Same-sex/Trans-gendered people. Galit na galit sila ng may mga pumuna sa kanila na mga public figures dahil daw hindi maganda ang maghusga ng tao, these people don’t respect them daw. And, some say na, it’s not really good of them to touch the topic since sila ay mga public figures, but face the truth, are they really just being true to themselves o they are just threatened? Don’t get me wrong, I respect everyone and I love everyone no matter how bad they may seem, hindi din naman ako perpekto to condemn.
So, going back. Being in the middle ground is really dangerous. The Bible says something about this (sasabihin ng iba, hay bible nanaman but take some time to think about it) Revelation 3:16- So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
…Cold, are you cold to God? You don’t care if He cares and you don’t really see the point of this thing “Jesus”. You clearly adore Lady Gaga and you find ways to rationalize her bahavior by finding positive things about her? Ganyan naman ata pag fan or idol aminin man natin o hindi, or better yet kapag inlove. Nako, mamahalin lahat ng panget kahit patay na kuko.
…Hot, Are you inlove with Jesus and you are clearly inclined to His will? Mahal mo ang tao sa paligid mo, you don’t judge but you are sad that the world is shifting their attention from God’s greatness that’s why you are on fire sa paglilingkod Sakanya at isapamuhay ang salita Niya para maliwanagan ang mga taong ito?
..LUKEWARM, maligamgam. In terms of being on the middle ground, gusto mo ba mapunta dito? Mga gumagawa ng Standards ng sarili nilang diyos. Mga taong nagsisimba pero, ano? Iinom dito, magpaparty mamaya, magmumura kada sentence at gumaganti kapag nasasaktan sila,sumasagot sa magulang pero take note “Nagsisimba po ako, nagpe-praise and worship pa nga kami eh.” Ano yun? JOke lang? Hobby lang?
Bakit nga ba gustong i-spit out ni Lord ang mga taong lukewarm? Eh kse wala silang paninindigan. Eh, how about those people who are cold? Aren’t they going to be spit out by God? I think, that’s why God said it is better to be cold than lukewarm is because cold people still have the tendency to change, turn back and be with Him in heaven. Unlike, lukewarm people, may pinaniniwalaan sila pero lahat ng yun puro base lang sa haka haka at knowledge of this world. Pero, I really believe that God still love those lukewarm that’s why I know He is going to move in their lives mysteriously.
I know, this post will receive a lot of negative criticisms, but I will stand up for the Truth and for my God na mahal ka din :)
JUST TO BE WITH GOD.
we sang even if we are looking like fools, we dance feeling no tiredness at all, we lift our hands as we declare JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!
