If there is one person who is famous (or infamous) other than Jesus, he is no other than Judas. He was the accountant in their group, more like the treasurer who holds the money. Some lessons we can learn from him as we studied the book of Luke is… (more…)

(As shared in University of San Carlos – Main Campus, September 29,2016)

Champion. What is a champion? (more…)

In following Jesus, some would come to a point of being a disciple while others would come to a point of being a deserter.


Reading through the book of Luke, I realized that God is really at work in terms of salvation. This is something that he does, and not a work of man.

Look at the case of Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10) (more…)

Cameo Roles.

If you are a marvel fan, you would be able to see Stan Lee, the writer of the whole Marvel universe, in every Marvel film. Even at 93 years old, you would see him in the movies. Why should he be in the movies? He wrote it so he had the right to be in it!


Stan Lee appears in Captain America: Winter Soldier. He appears in almost all the Marvel films!

Thinking of cameo roles, it doesn’t change the story but we get a glimpse of the one who wrote it. (more…)

I’ve always been someone who watches commercials instead of the shows. Well, mostly I enjoy watching commercials. I would count if it is a 10-,a 30- or a one minute ad. Commercials give you a tagline for every product. Consider the following…

KFC – finger lickin’ good.

Mcdonalds – love ko ‘to (I love this!)

Jollibee – (Atin ang) Langhap Sarap [Google would translate this as inhalation zest but actually it’s more like really delicious]



Back then, the tagline is FOLLOW YOUR HUNGER, OBEY YOUR THIRST. It’s catchy. It really makes you want to drink Sprite on a hot afternoon. The question is, what are you thirsty about? (more…)

Persistence pays off. There are two kinds of being persistence. One is the bad kind, where we nag and keep on sticking to what we want just to get what we want, or two, the good kind, where we stick to the plan, we stick to a diet, we stick to a workout, we stick to a relationship, we stick to what is right. Being persistent can be a good thing. Being persistent in prayer is something we need to develop.

The dictionary defines persistence as “continuing firmly or obstinately in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.”

Jesus told a parable in being persistent. So we should ask ourselves, what is then is that something that we need to be continuing to do, or something that we need to be obstinate about? (more…)

I was given a red/blue baller supporting someone running in the Philippine Election. It has an inscription that says…



Manong driver wears two ballers! Whoever wins, it’s fine with him!

While we, as a nation, is looking forward to the presidential elections, I think we’re all short sighted. We want to put our faith in a man, who or who may not bring change in the country. We’re looking for someone to transform our nation in a span of six years. Basically, that is what the election is.  (more…)

Explaining the Trinity

I mentioned “The Trinity” in one preaching and I couldn’t get over it. I mean, how many chances do we have on speaking about the topic? (more…)


What happens when we die? It’s a question that doesn’t really bother people unless they have someone who is in the hospital bed, a close friend who’s dying, or when you reach the age where you get your senior citizen card. A lot of us are not focused on what happens next, rather, we are so engaged in the present, in the plans we’re doing for the next four or five years. Even young adults don’t really plan out on dying and for eternity. (more…)
