The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases

His mercies never come to an end

They are new every morning, new every morning

Great is thy faithfulness.

note: This was taken from Lamentations 3:22,23. Lyrics by Maranatha. Preached by our pastor emeritus yesterday 1-28-18.

What do we really own ?

What do we really own ?

For now let us talk about materials and things. Today as I try to organize my garage, I had to decide what to keep and what to discard. Over the years i accumulated things and I noticed what i considered important then actually lay unused, turned obsolete and just taking up space.

As I grow older I noticed i don't need all my tools, and equipment parts. I even kept old car keys while the old cars are already gone.It seems I have to discard most in my old age and it seems I will be back where I started long time ago.

The Bible says in I Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

So what do we really own ? If we read the remaining verses of the above we will see we have eternal life if we trust in the living God. Please read further through your Bible I Timothy 6:8 to 6:21.

God bless you.

Time, times,and beyond time

Time, times, and beyond time

We can not deny modern man is governed by time or clock.Work schedule, school schedule, appointment times, airplane arrival and deparure times, etc. Time is very important to us. Without time we will be uncoordinated.Even the sun, stars and the moons, planets, move at precise times.

In the Bible, it is written in the fulness of time Jesus was revealed to the world in human form. Jesus who the Bible revealed as God stepped out of eternity to save or redeem man. He sacrificed Himself to save us from our sins. To His followers, He left us the assignment to tell the good news to the world and said He will return this time like a thief or at the time known only to God the Father.

For Christians we are told thru the Bible to be ready, watch , and pray and obey His commandments.

Speaking of time, let me invite you to read Psalm 90.

in Jesus is eternity,or eternal life.

Are we experiencing Jesus Christ ?

Are we experiencing Jesus Christ ?

After 30 years working in an electric generating station, where i worked as an operator learning and using equipments to produce or generate electricty, reaching a position where i was responsible for the units producing 700 megawatts. I did my best at work , thanks also to my co workers.After i retired i realized i did not pay attention much to how electricity is supplied to my house. Yes i know there is main electrical panel, switches , receptacles, outlets,lights but i did not pay attention to the wires inside the wall, how they are connected , etc, etc ?

What is my point ? We could be calling ourselves Christian all our life, belonging even to biggest denomination but we do not really know Jesus,we do not experience Him, we are not intimate with Him, we do not spend quality time with Him.

By the way now I am studying how electricity travels in my own house, how things are wired in a safe manner, learning what i could just to understand how it is wired at home.

I believe this is the same with us and Jesus. We need to get to really know Him before we leave this earth. Because we want to hear " well done my good and faithful servant, enter into My rest" and we do not want to hear " I never knew you, depart from Me."

We are all sinners but can we be holy ?

We are all sinners but can we be holy ?

The direct answer to that is yes, through Jesus Christ. We are holy or became holy not because of what we have done but because of what Jesus Christ has done.

We became holy by believing who and what Jesus Christ has done for us.Jesus took our sins and paid for them at the cross and gave His righteousness or holiness to us .

If that is true what do we do now ? Follow Jesus Christ and we can do that  because Jesus' spirit also is given to us.

Do that mean we do not sin anymore ? Yes we still sin but we need to confess them right away.

But our sins should become less and few.

The most important pursuit that most people ignored

The most important pursuit that most people ignored

As we observe the world today, most pursuits are about being number one in sports, business, education, beauty,riches. And if not number one then it will be with the elite. These pursuits often require great sacrifices, lifelong dreams , planning, and perseverance.

But now let us look at the pursuit of God. How many people do we know really work hard at pursuing God ? From the stories in the Bible, most people don't pursue God but it is God who pursues His creation. God of the Bible is a loving, merciful, gracious God.

I believe the best way of finding or knowing God is to pursue Him. People can tell others about God but the best is personal pursuit of God.

So what do you think ?

What mean the testimonies,and the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord our God had commanded you ?

What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the Lord our God has commanded you ?

I was surprised to find this question or verse in Deuteronomy 6:20. The same question i asked myself when studying Psalm 119. Moses more complete answer are in verses Deuteronomy 6:21-25.

But the main answer is in verse 25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the Lord our God, as he has commanded us.

This was in the Old Testament, according to the New Testament there was no one righteous, no, not one.

Did man fail ? yes he did but Jesus Christ fulfilled the law according to the Scriptures.  Jesus then became our righteousness.

For fuller explanation, please refer to the Holy Bible or if you need help ask your priest, pastor, fellow Christians or other Christians.

Hear the word of God and do it.

Hear the word of God and do it

Nowadays it easy to preach , blog or forward messages and these are good but our Lord's first emphasis is doing the words of God. We can hear the word of God by going to church or in times when one is not in church one can encounter the word of God by reading the Bible.

Our Lord compared those who apply the word of God as building ones house upon a rock or good foundation and those who don't do His words as building a house upon the sand.

So let's hear the word of God and do it.

True or False ?

True or False ?

These are three words but they are very important. It is the same as genuine or fake. We know in life sometimes the genuine and the fake are almost the same but really there is a big difference.

This blog is just to remind ourselves to make sure that what we are believing is true and not just sounds true or looks like true.

I will respect what you believe but i will pray and hope that you studied your beliefs properly and carefully. Double check and triple or multiple check them. And pray fervently about them asking God for help, grace and mercy.

Truth comes from the True God and His words. Through the Holy Spirit , He gives the true meaning and application of God's words and Jesus Christ is truth. From God comes true salvation.

The best time to check if what we are believing is true or false is while we are still alive on earth. Fair ?

A daily check is nothing compared to our eternal destiny. The best answer comes from an open heart and open mind pouring through an open book or the Holy Bible.
