• The Holy Communion

    The Holy Communion is an act of worship and thanksgiving that should be participated in and done by churches, gatherings and families in accordance to Christ's word (Luke 22:19) "To do this (the Holy Communion) in remembrance of Him" in order to thank God for sending His Son, thank Jesus for giving His life and to show our unity (oneness) with God... but why?

  • Is listening to secular music bad?

    - Is all secular music bad?
    - Am I saying that secular musicians are not talented?
    - What about secular musicians that are believers?
    - But secular music is better than Christian music
    - Why music... why not tv, games, etc?
    The Bible says to not be equally yoked with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14)... and listening to secular music makes you...

  • Why didn't you tell them about Jesus?

    Hell is real. It is your responsibility (as well as mine) to tell those who do not know about where people without Christ are headed. We will be held responsible for not sharing our faith... for being disobedient. Your salvation is not meant to be mysterious; Everyone should know. Not fulfilling the Great Commission is disobedience to...

    Worshiping God, being in the Spirit, feeling God's presence is much much more than lifting your hands up. Some do so because they think it is the right thing to do in God's Presence, others because they see people doing so, and others, for many more wrong reasons: Pride, hypocrisy, etc, or the right ones: adoration, joy, etc. When should you lift your hands up though?

  • Do not take God's glory

    Don't take God's glory. Never do. God gives you gifts, skills and talents, so the world can see, be amazed and through your giving Him glory, lead people back to Him. This is a reminder, one that I've needed to remind myself over and over again... Do not take God's glory or He will take it back...

In the future, think before you complain

I saw this article and decided to share it with you guys.

A blind girl hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If only I could only see the world, I will marry you.'

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?'

The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind.
The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him. Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying:
'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, before they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how our human nature (our flesh) often behaves... people even do this to God. When God blesses  us, restores to us or lifts us up, we tend to forget where it's all from. Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations. 

-Life Is a Gift from God. Today before you say an unkind word, think of someone who can't speak.
-Before you complain about the taste of your food, think of someone who has nothing to eat.
-Before you complain about your husband or wife, think of someone who's crying out to God for a companion.
-Today before you complain about life, think of someone who is no more.(None of us are here because we are so holy, but because of God's grace, love and mercy).
-Before you complain about your children, think of someone who desires children but has none. 
-Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean, think of the people who are living in the streets.
-Before whining about the distance you drive, think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet(because he/she has no choice but to do so).
-And when you are tired and complain about your job , think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.
-Before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another - Remember that not one of us is without error and we all answer to God our creator... everyone one of us will(including your pastors, priests, etc)
-And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and thank God that you're alive and still around. 

1. I guess this story also applies to having and asking God for wisdom The boyfriend should have asked God for direction before giving his eyes away.
2. This could also be seen as Jesus giving his life away for us His children. When we turn away from Him and go back to our old ways, we adopt the role of the blind girl. See the relationship?

Have a lovely week everyone.
