Be a Walking Church, not a walking dead

be the church

CHURCH is the PEOPLE… not the building!

The real church is us!

We must be the walking church!

Not the walking dead!

Through Christ Jesus were  A L I V E !

The real service is after the church service!

The real service starts when you left the building!

The real service is not only on Sunday…

But EVERYDAY!

Oh my dear fellow church,

What God wants is for us is not just to go to church

But be the CHURCH!

Remember, to present your bodies as

Living sacrifice – holy , pleasing and acceptable

To God, this is true worship!

Be the walking church, not the walking dead

What is faith?

Hi! it’s been a while blogging… so much busy in doing things but hopefully I would give time to blog my reflections again. This time here is my short sharing at my cellgroup about faith….

FAITH: THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN

What is Faith?

Hebrews 11:1 – “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (KJV)
ESV- Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
> When the Bible says “faith is the substance of things hoped for” (Heb. 11:1), it is speaking of something that has weight or significance—something of extreme value. (may bigat ba ng faith mo?). Oxford dictionary says that substance means – a real physical matter which a person or thing consist. But the bible describes the faith as substance!

> “Faith is . . . the evidence of things not seen.” The author uses a reference to one of the senses of the human body through which we gain knowledge, the sense of sight. There is a popular expression today, “Seeing is believing.” Bible doesn’t contradict it because when the disciples and apostle Paul preach they are “eyewitness” of the real and true Jesus Christ. By the way what is evidence?

> The idea is this: When faith is linked to hope, it is put into the time frame of the future, and the one thing that I cannot see at all is tomorrow (e.g. Noah, Abraham, David, Moses, Centurion etc.). None of us has yet experienced tomorrow.
> Let’s say – I don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring, but I know that God knows what tomorrow is going to bring. So if God promises that tomorrow will bring something, and if I trust God for tomorrow, I have faith in something I have not yet seen. That faith serves as evidence because its object evidence alone is God. I know Him; He has a track record—He is infallible and never lies. God knows everything and is perfect in whatever He communicates. So if God tells me that something is going to happen tomorrow, I believe it even though I haven’t seen it yet. (When was the last time where you have put and exercised your faith? And God’s perfect time answered it?)

>Another unseen is the work of God that manifested on your situations. When David challenged Goliath, he could think that I could not defeat him. But, he just flew the stone away and boompanis si Goliath. An ordinary child cannot do it, but what was seen is the work of God. (Can you think of situations in your life that you cannot resolve but God had made a way for it?)

> The word assurance comes from a Greek word referring to steadfastness of mind, a firm resolution, a confidence or assurance. The word conviction comes from a Greek word that denotes certainty or conviction about the existence or truthfulness of something. In light of the meaning of these terms, we may define biblical faith as the Christian’s assurance or confidence that what he hopes for is or will become a reality and the conviction or certainty that what he has not seen actually exists.

TOP 10: “Paulit-ulit??”

Do it again JesusWell isa na ang expression na “paulit-ulit??” na nauuso ngayon.

Ginagamit sa mga usapan na nagpapahayag na nakukulitan o naiinis ang taong tinatanungan dahil uulitin nanaman niya ang sinabi niya o ginawa niya.

Sa aking pagrereflect about sa “paulit-ulit” na yan. Alam niyo ba na si God gusto talagang mag “PAULIT-ULIT”?

————————————————————————————————————————-

1. PAULIT-ULIT na HABAG at KAAWAAN (MERCY)

>Psalms 86:5 For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy to all them that call on you.

>  Sa araw – araw na ginawa ng Diyos, nananaig parin ang mercy sa kanyang mga nilikha.

> Sa bible, the great flood would have been wiped all of man kind. That was the first time where God had regrets on making men but because of Noah, God continued the man’s race again through him —- with a rainbow’s promise not to flood again the whole world.

>Kung ang diyos may mercy (awa, habag) sa iyo, we could do it on our fellow men 🙂

————————————————————————————————————————-

2. PAULIT-ULIT na NAGPAPALA

> Sinong Kristiyanong Marunong ang ayaw sa pagpapala ng Diyos? Naalala ko ung kanta ng planetshakers na “DO IT AGAIN”! Yeah!

>Minsan may nasasabi tayong di tayo worthy sa pagpapala… pero binigay parin sa iyo ng Diyos. So praise Him for He gives us blessings!

>James 1:17 – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,

————————————————————————————————————————-

3. PAULIT-ULIT na PAGBIBIGAY NG ARAW at BUHAY

> “Magmulat ng mata, langit nakatawa….” hehe… Iyong pagbukas ng iyong mata, pagalis sa muta, pag-unat unat mo, paghikab at paglanghap ng hangin ay lahat nagmula sa paulit-ulit na pagbibigay ng buhay ng Panginoon! Ooops, di lang ikaw kasama na hayop, halaman,  pag-ikot ng oras at mundo —EVERYTHIN’!

> Kaya don’t complain pagising o sa buhay, magpasalamat dahil may araw nanaman na pwede tayong maging productive at maranasan muli ang kabutihan ng Panginoon sa atin.

>Ung iba ang daming nirereklamo sa buhay, pero ang Kristiyanong Marunong ay alam i treat na ang buhay nila ay by God’s grace and should be worthy to be grateful of.

>Mas maraming bagay ang karapat-dapat na igalak kaysa sa mga problemang iilan lamang na inimumukmuk

>This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalms 118:24

[check out my QuotaBLESS about this HERE! – YOU MADE MY DAY]

————————————————————————————————————————-

4. PAULIT-ULIT na PAGPAPATAWAD

> “You may walk a thousand steps away to God but it takes 1 step back to God”

> Ang diyos handang magpatawad nang paulit-ulit para sa iyo. Walang sukat ng kasalanan na di kayang patawarin ng ating Panginoong Hesus. Kung sincere at pure ang puso mo sa paghingi ng tawad sa kanya, automatically, patatawarin ka niya

> Di mo na kailangang pasakitan ang sarili, ang Diyos natin ay hindi gustong masaktan ang kanyang mga anak, dahil tinapos na niya ito sa krus

> Kung ang mga magkasintahan ay may linyang -“Paulit-ulit nalang, sawa na ako”, sa Diyos naman – “Hindi ako magsasawang patawarin ka, Anak”

> If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9

> Kung kaya ng Diyos patawarin ka, makakaya mo ring magpatawad ng iba

————————————————————————————————————————-

5. PAULIT-ULIT na PAGSUBOK

> It does not mean everyday ha? Ung pagsubok na parte na ng buhay at hindi nawawala. Dahil sa mga pagsubok na ito, nagiging matatag tayo sa buhay, mas naeexercise natin ung faith natin sa kanya at mas nagiging mature tayo.

>Hindi perpekto ang buhay, dapat may pagsubok, kaparaanan narin ito ng Panginoon ng pagtuturo sa atin sa buhay, pagdidisiplina dahil mahal niya tayo at higit sa lahat kaparaanan niya rin ito para hindi ka mawalay sa kanyang piling.

>Minsan sa pagsusulit o pagsubok sa buhay tayoy bumabagsak dahil ung freewill natin na gawin ang tamang aksyon sa pagsubok ay hindi nananaig. Maraming pagsubok or test na makikita natin sa bibliya na dapat kasama ang Diyos upang malampasan mo ito.

> Hindi ka bibigyan ng Diyos ng pagsubok na hindi mo kaya. Siya rin mismo ang sasama sa iyo sa pagsubok na iyan kapatid.

> at pagkatapos ng pagsubok ay doon mo makikita ang experience at kapangyarihan ng Diyos sa buhay mo.

[CHECK OUT HERE POST ABOUT THIS ON MY REFLECTION: PINAYUKONG PALITO]

> James 1:2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds

————————————————————————————————————————

6. PAULIT-ULIT na makikinig sa iyong Panalangin

> Ang tenga ng panginoon ay hindi maikli para makinig sa atin.
Just continue to pray for it.

> God’s answer would be a YES, NO or wait. God will give you impressions on your prayers if you really need to pray for it or not. If it is on Good motive, Good heart and on God’s will – it would be answered. God’s choice will prevail.

[SPEAKING OF PRAYER…. CHECK OUT HERE: ANG PAGDULOG]

>Philippians 4:6 – Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

———————————————————————————————————————–

7. PAULIT-ULIT na Nagpapagaling

> Saan po tayo nagpapasalamat kung gumaling tayo? Sa gamot? sa Doktor? Ang pagpapagaling ay nagmumula sa Diyos! Ung mga nabangit ay instrumento lamang ng Diyos upang ika’y gumaling

> Kung healing ang pinaguusapan di lang pang pisikal, kasama ang emotional, spiritual.

> Sabi ng isang pastor na kilala ko, “Ang taong naniniwala sa milagro ng Dios ay nagpapatotoo, Ang taong di naniniwala sa milagro ay walang Dios na totoo.” Miracles do happen mga kapatid ko. In God’s perfect time, He would show his great miracle of healing.

>If Jesus’ is same yesterday, today and forever, so as His miracles and healing!

>He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. 1 Peter 2:24

———————————————————————————————————————-

8. PAULIT-ULIT na Pagpapalo (with LOVE)

> Hebrews 12:6-8 “because the Lord disciplines the one he loves,and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all.”

> Wag po tayong magmukmuk kapag pinapalo po tayo ng Diyos. Minsan ang tinitignan natin ung mismong pamalo, dapat ang tignan natin ung NAMAMALO, ung amang gusto kang turuan at maging “mature” kaya pasakop tayo sa Diyos Ama na tunay na marunong.

> Tandaan po natin na PAGPAPALA din ang PAGPAPALO —–ng Diyos.  Nangangahulugan lamang ito na ayaw ka niyang mapariwara at ayaw ka niyang mas mapahamak pa sa buhay! AMEN sa ating Diyos Ama!

————————————————————————————————————————

9. PAULIT-ULIT na Katapatan

> Isa lang ang Tapat – ang Diyos! Tapat sa kanyang mga salita at pangako!

>Hebrews 13:8 – Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

> Let God and Let go. Lean on the promises of His Words dahil SUBOK na yan – Convincing! 🙂

[Mablebless ka rito sa QuotaBLESS ko click HERE- “TAPAT”]

————————————————————————————————————————

10. PAULIT-ULIT na PAGMAMAHAL

> Ang lahat ng nabanggit na paulitulit sa taas ay nagpapatunay lamang na MINAMAHAL tayo ng Diyos. Magmula umpisa noong ginawa ang tao hanggang ngayon, Pag-ibig at pagmamahal ng Diyos ang nananaig.

>John 3:16  “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

> GOD LOVES YOU! He is serious and meant it from His heart. Kaya binigay niya si Jesus dahil sa pag-ibig sa atin na maibalik muli ang tao sa dapat niyang kabilangan —- sa piling ng Panginoon! Can you give me an AMEN for that?
> Hebrews 13:5 – “…I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Pinayukong Palito

Image

Napansin ko talaga at napukaw sa aking damdamin itong palito.

Kapag sinisindihan siya, yumuyuko pagkatapos ng apoy. Natry nyo na ba?

Subukan nyo sindihan tapos patapusin nyo ang apoy, around 70-90% chance of pagyuko.

Tayo din na mga kristiyano, kung asa apoy tayo ng problema, pagkalito, pagkabahala, marunong tayong yumuko.

Actually, hindi lang yung apoy kasama, pati iyong pagkiskis sa gilid ng kahon ng posporo na hinahalintulad sa

mga hinanakit, hapdi at kasakitan sa buhay.

Ang lahat ng ito’y nagdudulot ng apoy sa buhay! Ngunit ang palito ay yumuyuko!

Ang isang matigas at tuwid na palito ay napapayuko din!

Tulad ng palito, Ang Kristiyanong Marunong, alam manalangin at yumuko sa harap ng Diyos. Wala tayong magagawa kung wala siya.

Ang Diyos hindi ka niya bibigyan ng pag-subok na hindi mo kaya. Bago ka matupok sa apoy, ay hihipan na ito ng Diyos.

At sa pag-ihip niya sa apoy ay ikaw ay magiging malakas at mapapagtagumpayan mo ang anumang apoy ng buhay.

Masasabi mo nalang, “Ang lahat ng kabutihan ay galing sa Diyos, papupurihan ko siya dahil sinamahan niya ako.”

Tandaan na laging siya’y pagkatiwalaan dahil siya ay TAPAT mula noon,
hanggang sa ngayon at maging kailanman – walang palya! at subok na!

In his presence, we find release, we find hope, we find strength.

Psalm 4:1

“Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.”

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?

When angry or feel bursting out….
When I am falling on my knees…
In times of lacking wisdom and understanding…
Whenever peace does not come…
When there’s calamity, Illness…
When where’s no where to go…
When there’s death…
When I am sinning and on guilt…
When God’s will is not clear….
When seeking truth…
When feeling inferior or useless…
Whenever stressed out…
In times that God seems so far away…
In times that I cannot seems to worship or praise…

Top 6: Scribbling #Selfie

selfie supermanSince the #selfie internet craze is on the loose, I would like to set this edition of my “TOP-Silogs” to the SELFIE CRAZE! I am not against the Selfie, it’s the selfishness. We must ask God to help us, guide us and teach us in realizing selfishness in our hearts. Remember, Our God is so selfless and unconditional that He gave fully His only Son for us, right?

So here are my TOP-SILOGS insights about #SELFIE:

1. Selfie must be restricted to photography and must not be brought to your heart…

Psalm 119:36  Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.

2. Selfie may be a worldwide trending on twitter but must not be “trend” to your life.

Rom 2:8 but wrath and anger to those who live in selfish ambition and do not obey the truth but follow unrighteousness.

3. Selfie may be viewed  in all picture posts in facebook but not be “viewed” by others and by God on your deeds in real life.

Php 2:3  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.

4. We must not be the selfie(selfish) Generation

2 Tim. 3:1-4  But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.
People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,  without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,
treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God–

5. Christians must have selfless faith, not selfy on faith

Credits to Ptr.@jordanescusa for the tweet as reference.

2Co 5:17  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

Your old selfish desires are changed by the time Jesus invaded your life. It’s not “all about you” but “all about JESUS.

JESUS > YOU (Jesus is greater than You)

Selfie on faith also means, not sticking to yourself the faith that you received from Jesus….. SHARE THAT FAITH, SHARE JESUS TO OTHERS. Ipaexperience din natin sa iba ung faith na natanggap mo by sharing Jesus, not being selfie on it.

Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

6. Remember that we don’t have a SELFIE GOD 

Can I get an AMEN for that? HALLELUJAH! Thank you LORD!

He gave Jesus for us! Not only that – He also opened heavens for us. The favor and love of God is always for men, THAT’S HOW SELFLESS OUR GOD IS. Amazing isn’t it? That’s How he loves us!

Philippians 2:7  But made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.

Matthew 20:28  Even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

John 3:16-17 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

May purpose parin!!

Don’t think your self and

Ephesians 1:6

“To the praise of the glory of his grace, in which he has made us accepted in the beloved.” 

Jeremiah 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.

Psalm 138:8

The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.

Romans 8:28

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
