Will there be everlasting reunion ?

Will there be everlasting reunion ?

I belong to the generation where people just about celebrate 50 year reunion; family/ school , every year that is.

Now we ask, will there be an everlasting reunion in the future ?

What do you think ? will you be there if there is ?

The most expensive purchase ever made

The most expensive purchase ever made

This week i got focused on canvassing the price for printing a souvenir booklet and seemed to employ fumbling efforts to make the lay out. As i shop around for good price i finally settled on a certain print shop. Then my mind started wandering about the purchase made by man , companies or governments. They probably spend a lot of money. I wondered what could be the most expensive.

To make a long story short I believe the most expensive purchase ever made was and is : the purchase of our redemption or salvation of our soul by our Lord Jesus Christ God's Son.

The Bible says we are bought with a price by the precious blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Could anything be more expensive ?

Apostle Paul wrote: I fought a good fight, kept a good faith and finished the course.

So for us: Let us fight a good fight, keep the faith and finish the course.

Jesus' death on the cross

Jesus' death on the cross

What does Jesus' death on the cross mean ? Why did Jesus has to die on the cross ?

Do you know ? do you care ? do you want to know ? is it relevant to you ?

Your answer to those questions will determine or has determined what you have been doing.

Cycle of Life

Cycle of Life

As i grow older I noticed I am losing what i got, my hair, teeth, motion, sight, hearing etc. So I thought God what's going on ?

Then what i read from the Bible started to surface. That man was created from the dust of the earth. From dust ? Yes that' s what the Bible says. But  what is dust ? Dictionary says dust is very fine particles of matter deposited on the ground or suspended in the air. From the dust God made it into man with its intricacies and breathed on it. And it became a living soul.

From dust to moving parts to a body composed of different organs and systems and life. But something happened  to that living dust called man, it sinned and for that it will die said God.

Dying is going back to dust. So as man aged it is going back to dust. It is like material forming into a car and then operation and then going towards junk.

That is discouraging, to be nothing and then going back to nothing. But wait the Bible says to prevent man from dying God gave His Son Jesus Christ that whosoever believe in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Those man or dust that believe in Jesus will come back to life again.

Do you believe this ? I do but then you may ask what if it is not true. Then we will just be back to dust. But what if it is true  ? eternal life , is it not ?

Which one would you select ? to believe or not to believe ?

Are you tired of chasing rainbow ?

Are you tired of chasing rainbow ?

I believe the title means are you tired of reforming yourself , by your own efforts, by your own works ? I believe you are tired and so am I because it does not work that way. What you may say ? Because the Bible says it is through the Spirit that we are renewed, through the work of Jesus Christ, through the work of God the Father.

Let me ask you, what did you have to do to get the sin nature ? answer nothing because it was pass on to us. Now because of that sin nature our natural way is to sin, to disobey, to think and do evil or we are deceived.

Our Lord Jesus says we need to be born again. But can we do it ourselves with our sin nature ? answer no, we need help from above, from the Spirit, from our Lord Jesus , from God our Father.

Take note we can not call God our Father with our sin nature because of that we are separated from God. Only through the work of Jesus and the Holy Spirit are we reconciled with God.

Now the question is how can the Spirit work in our lives ? does He does it by force ? no He works gently, convicting us of our sin,till truth starts in our life and we open more to God but again our sin nature resist till the Spirit prevails and we are saved.

Are we led by the Spirit of God ? let us answer that later or someday but do you agree with what is presented to you ? do you need someone to ask ? your priest, your pastor, your elder ?

The greatest decision in our life

The greatest decision in our life

In this life we make many decisions like what school/ college or university to go to. What courses to take ? where to work ? who to marry ? all of these are worthwhile but what will be the greatest decision in our life or lives ? I believe the greatest decision we have to make is who is the God to worship.

The decision will lead us to heaven or hell. To eternal life or eternal punishment.

The search for truth is one of the most rewarding endeavor we will ever make.

Have you found your God yet ? or Have you connected with the God who loves you and died for you and offers you eternal life ?

Commencement speeches in the internet

Commencement speeches in the internet

I was surfing through the internet when i came across some commencement speeches in the internet and I decided to listen to them. To my amazement those were inspiring. I listened to two speeches one from a military officer and one from a known actor. Those were inspiring and also can be a lifelong inspiration and lessons but then i thought how do they compare with messages in Christian churches even  with the sermons of Jesus.

Here is a fact we Christians listen to sermons week after week and what do we do with them?  or even read the Bible religiously and what do we do with them ? me guilty in the first degree but let us not go to condemnation but let us do something. Let's apply the words of our Lord Jesus in our lives. They are not easy., but let's apply them little by little or as much as we can.

Let's do them the Holy Spirit will help us.
