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) Read the rest of this entry »

When it comes to the deity of Jesus, a lot of our students get the question on how do we prove that Jesus is human and at the same time, how on earth can He be God. So we come to a discussion in our small group on who Christ is.

Oh wow. How time flies. Was it just a year ago when I celebrated going pass 30? Here are a few thoughts as I turned 32.

#1 I’m grateful that the Lord has called me into His service.

Just as Paul mentioned in Ephesians 3:8…

though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ…

We are called to be missionaries, whether intentional or not.

That is how I feel. Being the least of the saints. Why would God choose me with all my faults and failures? I am still overwhelmed that He would allow me to preach. But I am reminded that it is a CALLING. Hence, it is my prayer that I be found faithful in this area. Read the rest of this entry »

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. Read the rest of this entry »

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]

Sprite

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? Read the rest of this entry »

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? Read the rest of this entry »

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

CHANGE IS COMING.

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.  Read the rest of this entry »
