Pentecost

The Lord Jesus offers each one of us the gift and power of His Holy Spirit.
He wants to make:
* our faith strong
* hope that endures and
* a love that NEVER GROWS COLD.
He never refuses to give his Spirit to those who ask with expectant faith.
God bless.

1 Cor 15:42-44

So is it with the RESURRECTION of the dead.
What is sown is perishable, what is raised is imperishable.
It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory.
It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power.
It is sown in physical body, it is raised a spiritual body.
If there is a physical body, there is also a spiritual body.
Happy Resurrection Day, dear families and friends.
God bless you and He longs to see you serve Him even more!!!

Reflection

Jesus’ disciples were put to the test as Jesus prepared to make the final and ultimate sacrifice of his own life for their sake and for all the world.
What was different between Peter and Judas?
Judas deliberately betrayed his Master, while Peter, in a moment of weakness, denied him with an oath and a curse.
John says that Satan entered into Judas when he rejected Jesus and left to pursue his evil course.
Satan can twist:
* love and turn it into hate.
* holiness into pride.
* discipline into cruelty.
* affection into complacency.
* our sweet and light yoke into bitter and heavy one.
In this time of greatness, the Resurrection of our Savior, Lord and God if we submit to Him we will walk in the light of His truth and love.
If we turn our backs on Him we will stumble and fall in the ways of sin and darkness.
Judas or Peter?
Judas was stumble, Peter became the “Rock.”
Are you ready to follow Jesus in His way of the cross?
The Holy Spirit will give us grace and strength in our time of testing.
Happy Holy Week.

Hate, pride, bitter and heavy yoke come from the enemy.
Watch out!!

Judas

Jesus had put Judas in charge of their common purse, no doubt because he was gifted in financial matters. The greatest temptation we can face will often come in the area of our greatest strength or gifting. Judas used money entrusted to him for wrong and hurtful purposes. He allowed greed and personal gain to corrupt his heart and to wrap his view of things. A person views things according to what it inside the heart and soul.
God bless.

What is your strong and gifting point?
Be aware the temptation will come there.
Be strong in the Lord.
Stay humble and cool. Without God I’m nothing, I’m nobody.

Living Water

One can live without food for several days, but not without water.
Water is a source of life and growth for all living things.
The image of “Living water” is used throughout the scripture as a symbol of God’s wisdom, a wisdom that imparts life and blessing to all who receive it.
Also a symbol for the Jews of thirst of the soul for God, symbolized the Holy Spirit and his work of recreating us in God’s image and sustaining in us the new life which comes from God.
Many knows God’s word, but the difference is: few “put into action.”
Jesus is the “Living water.”

Matthew 5:14

You are the light of the world.
Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world.
If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you?
I’m putting you on a light stand —- shine!
So the message is so clear:
“God is not a secret to be kept”.
Be the salt and be the light now!
God bless.

Matthew 5:13

You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? Why are you here? You are here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage. Next: You are…..

CREATED TO BECOME LIKE CHRIST

There is no growth without change,
no change without fear/ loss,
and no loss without pain.
No pain, no gain.
True love is love that causes us pain, that hurts, and yet brings us joy.
Don’t give up, grow up.

We go through exactly what Christ goes through.
If we go through the hard times with Him, then we’re certainly going to go through the good times with Him.
