Two greatest commandments

Two greatest commandments

A lawyer asked Jesus, Master which is the great commandment in the law ? Jesus said unto him, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment.

And the second is like unto it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

(Quoted from the Holy Bible Matthew 22:35-40.)

Truth

Truth

Jesus is Truth. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Christians have different ways of remembering or following Jesus and that is what we need to watch and pray about.

It will take a fervent or passionate , serious prayer for us to mature  in Jesus. Correction that we seek from God is probably more  effective than when someone tries to correct us because our tendency is to resist. The point is we need to be able to examine if the correction has merit or that we are really serious about our faith.

I pray that we honestly seek God personally and beg Him to tell us where we need correction. And for us to really act on correction. Let God assure us if we are in the truth and that we do not wander away from Him.

Connection

Connection

Connection came from the word connect which means to join together. Connection could be physical, relational, electrical, and spiritual. Without connection something could not be done. Let's consider one example of each.

Let us say you want to open a door but you do not have the key or your key is broken, then you do not have physical connection. Let us say you want to visit someone but you do not have permission, then you do not have relational connection. Let us say you want to turn on a motor or electrical bulb but for some reason you do not have power, then there goes your electrical connection.

Let us say you want to talk to God or live with Him but because of sin we are separated from God.  How then could you connect with God. Answer: through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the Mediator between God and man. He is our connection. He is the way, the truth , and the life , no one comes to the Father except through Him.

Man's pedestal- a dangerous place to be

Man's pedestal - a dangerous place to be

Every human being i believe has a desire to achieve something, to be worth something. But when that happens, slowly or surely things go out of hand. We like the position to be look up on.

We like to be admired, but for our own good , we all need to avoid the temptation to be put on a pedestal or put another human being on a pedestal.

Some sermons i recall warn about PMS which stand for pride, materalism and sex. Pride is what put us on a pedestal. The Bible says pride comes before a fall.

Let us submit to God and be humble.

Honesty before the Lord

Honesty before the Lord

God knows everything about us , there is nothing hidden from Him.Might as well be honest before the Lord.

The Lord Jesus could return at any time,so let us be ready. Let us confess our sins to Him and beg for his pardon for He is gracious and merciful.

I believe when we do this, He gives us a fresh start. Think or imagine what that will give us. God is honored and we are renewed.

We all have our lives to live but we have a choice on how to live our lives.Let us choose to live it for Jesus. On this or these new lives we could still fall but let us keep getting up and look on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.

Found another error in me.

Found another error in me

I got used to always asking from God that i forgot Christians are also soldiers and that we are involved in spiritual warfare. As soldiers i can not be calling in sick all or most of the time.I should be in faith as to report for work.

The Bible described the armor of God as written in Ephesians chapter 6. Put on the helmet of salvation, breastplate of righteousness, shield of faith, belt of truth, sword of the Spirit which is Word of God, shoes or sandals of the gospel of peace. These coupled with prayers, love, compassion, courage, hope, alertness, fellowship with other Christians.

Let us rise and deny ourselves or submit to God, take up our cross and follow Jesus  and be empowered with the Spirit.

Pagsisisi (Repentance)

Pagsisisi (Repentance)

Pagsisisi- Tagalog term for repentance.Ang pagsisisi ay isa sa mga gawaing hinahanap sa atin ng Panginoon Hesukristo. Repentance is one of the attitudes God is looking for us to do.

The word " repent" occurred 105 times in the Holy Bible.

According to II Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Ayon sa II Pedro 3:9 Hindi mapagpaliban ang Panginoon tungkol sa kaniyang pangako, na gaya ng pagpapalibang ipinanalagay ng iba; kundi mapagpahinuhod sa inyo, na hindi niya ibig na sinuman ay mapahamak, kundi ang lahat ay magsipagsisi.

Kasunod ng pagsisisi ay ang pagtanggap natin kay Jesus Christ bilang Panginoon at Tagapagligtas.

Repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ that we may be saved.

Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ

Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ

Based on the Holy Bible we should watch and pray always and trust and believe in our Lord Jesus Christ. Repent of our sins and accept God's pardon and grace, and mercy and peace. Be cleansed by the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and be filled by and with the Holy Spirit.

Read the Holy Bible regularly for guidance and strength.

Do everything for the glory of God.

Let your heart and your mind be renewed by the Spirit of the Living God.

In Jesus name,

Amen,

Barely scratched the surface

Barely scratched the surface

I believe God can be found because He reveals Himself to us in the person of Jesus Christ. It is easy to assume we know Jesus Christ but to say we know Him deeply takes much, even years, even lifetime or more.

As I start to read the book of Leviticus I got aware or got a glimpse of God's attention to details. The Old Testament was meant to be introduction to the New Testament or Revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Truly we need God, the Spirit of Jesus and the Holy Spirit to help us understand and grow as a Christian.

Tonight it seems i barely scratched the surface of knowing God.But through God's grace, mercy and love found in Jesus Christ, God will guide us , lead us deeper in His marvelous light and truth, and holiness.

Hang on to Jesus

Hang on to Jesus

After reading the New Testament i restarted reading the Old Testament, went through Genesis, and about to finish Exodus. As i read about Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the sons of Jacob, Joseph, and in their life in Egypt, i lingered on the story of Moses, the tabernacle, the ark of the covenant, the ark of testimony, the priests, the ephod or the garment of the priest, the offerings, the atonement etc. 

Once again these are the pictures of the coming Messiah Jesus. If you the readers want more details, there are many books out there derived from the Scriptures or Holy Bible.

I hope you are already digging on what you can know and believe about Jesus.

Go, go, go to Jesus.
