  • Ways to Make God Smile

    Know that wisdom is such to your soul; if you find it, there will be a future, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 24:14

    Jesus has made us happy by dying for our sins and bridging the separation that our sins had created between us and God (Isaiah 59:1-2), so we should remember that Jesus is moved to happiness every time He sees that you and I appreciate what He has done for us.

    Here are 3 ways to make God happy:

     

    Thank God always:

    It’s like us, when we do something to our loved ones, we usually do it to make them happy, and in return, when that someone acknowledge our effort by saying thank you, our happiness would be so big that our hearts becomes heavy because of that happiness we felt in us. Now God would be very happy if we thank Him for everything He has done for us. The most important thing that we should be thanking of is that He gave us His only son so that we will be saved.  Let’s consider thanking Him every day of our lives, thank Him in prayer, in praise and worship songs, even going to Sunday service. God is not asking much for us; just say thank you is enough for Him to make Him smile.

     

    Doing Good to Others:

    When you do something good, God would be so proud of you. God is commanding us to do well to others, even in our worst enemy; we should be good and love them. During the time when Jesus came to earth, He shows us how He treated people, He is kind even to those unkind to Him, He helps the needy, He forgave those people who are unforgivable, He love those who are unlovable, He is  compassionate , he had a heart of mercy, being good,  patient, and caring. All the characteristic Jesus is showing us, which should be our example. We should learn to do them to make our God happy.

     

    Always Seek Him:

    The idea is that when we draw near to God, He reveals Himself to us. God does not hide Himself from the seeking heart. “But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29)You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13) God will be happier if we will seek Him until we can find Him. Digging more into the word of God will help us know more about Him. Talking to Him in prayer every day will make us to be closer to Him. Never stop seeking Him, because we still have a lot of things, character to learn from. Just like a friend, we become best friends when we know the a lot more things about them. God wants us to be His friends, not just friends but more of that. God will be happy if we become closer and closer to Him.

  • What If? | Spoken Word |

    We hear a lot of things about God. Things in church, in songs, on the news, and in the bible. But what if everything we have heard is actually true? Well, no everything, but what if God really is who he says he is? In this spoken word poem, Jon asks a dangerous question...What if?

  • Getting Closer with God

     And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:5

    Having a closer relationship with God is the most important relationship we'll ever have, and thus it deserves to be our utmost priority. And like how earthly relationships we have like marriage and friendship thrive and deepen, our Father-and-child relationship with God should grow, too. But how, you ask? It's simple. God is Father to us, and He will surely do His part in bringing your relationship with Him to an ever greater level every time you let Him. In fact, growing your relationship with God isn't that hard. There are four basic things we can do to have a closer relationship with God.

    Reading the Bible Every day

    Make it a habit that you read God’s word, do it every morning when you wake up and before you go to bed. Reading the bible makes your relationship with God more closer. Why? In that way, you know what the characteristic our God has is. Just as we learn the character of a parent or friend through relationships, we learn God's character when we read the Bible.  Read one chapter a day, keeping within one book at a time.  It doesn't matter how much you read; the strengthening comes from daily scripture reading.

    Talking to God

    Sincere prayer is powerful because the Creator of the entire universe loves to hear our prayers and loves to answer them. The Bible has many scriptures that tell us to pray and many that give pointers on how to pray. God expects us to maintain daily communication with Him—reading His messages in the Bible and talking to Him in prayer. And the more you pray the more natural it will be for you. The Bible compares the "prayers of the saints" with sweet-smelling incense, because they please God (Revelation 5:8). Keep in mind that prayer isn’t like a phone call – we don’t have to hang up and try back later.  Consider just never saying “amen” and keep the conversation going all day.

    Listen when God Speaks

    Listening to God is like listening to anyone-before you can hear Him, you must be ready to listen. Just as in a conversation, you cannot hear the other person if you are talking or if your mind is distracted. So it is with God. If you want to hear Him speak, you must be quiet and you must be focused on what He is saying. Regular conversation with God can transform your life and bring you closer to Him.

    Attend Sunday Service Regularly

    All of us as Christians need to attend Sunday worship so that we can leave with the best possible spiritual experience. We can praise and worship God and we can learn things that we didn’t know before. We will be challenged. We’re going to be motivated. Church is where we will be inspired to go higher than we’ve gone, to live a life that is better and greater than we’ve been living, to sync our life up with God and His purpose and plan for our life.

  • Here are 10 tips on how to start writing your own devotional journal:

    Pick a bible verse: There are a lot of bible verses that you can choose from. The point in making a Christian devotional is to focus on God and Jesus. The bible has many things that can say about God and Jesus, the love, mercy forgiveness, kindness, faithfulness and many to mention. You can choose a bible verse to start writing your devotional.

    Reflect: when you already choose a bible verse, reflect on it. Take the time to sit and think about what you’ve read. Pause on each word of a verse, emphasizing it as you read it. Reflect on the lesson and how it applies to your life.

    Draft down: draft down any questions that you think of. What did you learn? What is God trying to say through this devotional or Scripture?  What happened recently that relates to what you just read? Does anything stick out to you? How can you apply this lesson in your life? Ask yourself questions about the passage. These are all important questions to explore.

    Take time to worship: In making a devotional journal, you need to have guidance by the Holy Spirit. Take time to sing praise and worship songs, singing worship songs can help us remember words; we remember patterns in music much better than patterns in words alone. It can help us engage the words emotionally. Music is a language of emotion in every culture of every age. It is capable of affecting us in profound and subtle ways. And worship can help us use words to demonstrate and express our unity.

    Be Creative: Apart from writing down your devotional journal, think of some ways that you won’t get bored when reading. Think outside the box, if you are good in drawing then draw something, illustrate what’s on your thought that you are most comfortable in expressing yourself. Do some art, it’s either you do it through graphic then do it.

    Know your reader: if you wanted to share your devotional journal, know who is your target; is it the youth, backslider, unbeliever or anyone. You must know the content of what are you writing.

    Be yourself: it’s okay to write devotional journal not that perfect. We commit mistakes and as we go along we will get better in doing it. Grammar isn't as important as your message. Do check your spelling with the spell checker, and have someone else read it if you wish, but the message is the most important thing here.

    Keep it short and use simple words: keep your readers be interested in your devotional journal. Taking a lot of words may bore them. Our devotional should be no more than one page, or 500 words. But it is even better if it's less than 500 words; shoot for 250 words to keep yourself focused on one small laser targeted topic.

    Check your resources: Make sure, if you are quoting biblical scripture that you not only check the scriptures to make sure you are not taking something out of context, and that you are quoting it correctly, but make sure you are using a relevant verse to support your devotional.

    Pray: Before you start anything else pray. Ask God to help you enlighten in what you are trying to write, ask God to speak to you, ask for His guidance. Making prayer part of your devotional journal will remind you of God’s faithfulness in answered, or unanswered, prayers.

     

  • COMMITMENT

    My goal in life is to serve and honor God, make my family proud, motivate and inspire people. Everything else it's a consequence.
    "JESUS is the way and the truth and the life. NO ONE comes to the Father except through ME."-(John 14:6) JESUS is the only one who can set us fre

  • Can I be Save?

    Romans 10:13: “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

    There are four things about this inspired statement that you should notice

    Salvation is necessary

    You need to be saved. That fact is clearly taught throughout the Bible. It says, “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Man in his natural condition is alienated from God. He is a sinner by nature and by practice. He may be a refined sinner-very cultured, decent, and respectable-yet he is a sinner. He must receive forgiveness and cleansing and a new nature in order to be fit for heaven. This is true of every person in the world, even good people. It was to a very religious man that Jesus said, “Ye must be born again” (John 3:7).

    You should notice that it’s our Lord Jesus Christ who saves men

    He bore our sins in His own body on the cross, the Bible says (1 Peter 2:24). “Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3). No man can save his own soul. Neither can one man save another’s soul. As the poet put it: “There was no other good enough To pay the price of sin; He only could unlock the gate Of heaven, and let us in;”

    The simplicity of salvation

    Even a child can understand it. All you need to do is “call on the name of the Lord.” Do you remember reading about that night when Jesus was walking on the water, and Peter started doing the same, but suddenly he began to sink? Peter didn’t have time to make a long prayer. He just had time to cry out; “Lord, save me,” but that was enough. The Bible says that “Jesus stretched forth his hand and took hold of him.” He will do the same for you. Of course, there must be faith in your heart. You must believe these things that you have been reading; namely, that you need to be saved, and that only Christ can save you. Furthermore, you must believe that He will save you. Jesus said, “Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out” (John 6:37). You must take action. You must call upon Him.

    Notice that wonderful word whosoever

    That means everyone; old or young, rich or poor, educated or uneducated-everyone. It means you. No matter where you are, or what you have done, or how weak you feel, you can be saved by calling upon the name of the Lord. He knows all about you. He loves you and desires to save you. He can transform your life if you will let, Him do it. Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ this moment and you will be saved instantly. You will have the joy of salvation in this life, and an eternal home in heaven.

     

  • Are You Good Enough for God?

    Are You Good Enough for God? -- Ben Piershale explains that there is nothing we can do on our own to make ourselves good enough or clean enough to approach God.

  • Is God for us

    “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)

    Is God for us? Romans 8:31 says that “God is for us.” Here are some scriptures that express how He is indeed for us. “He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.” (2 Corinthians 5:5) God does not want us to fail. He has sent us the Holy Spirit to guide us and convict us. “All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to Himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.” (2 Corinthians 5:18) “But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) God is for us so much that He gave His one and only Son as a sacrifice to pay the full debt of humanity’s sin. He did this to reconcile us to Himself. “We love because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:19) He already loved us before we gave our lives over to Him. He is definitely for us. “And this is the promise that He made to us – eternal life.” (1 John 2:25) We are assured eternal life with God. God is for us. Read the Psalms. David wrote many that showcased God’s love for him as he was delivered from his enemies. Can believers be defeated? “Who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31) The answer to this is “no one.” Sure we can be persecuted and hurt here on earth, but eternally we will live and bask in the Glory of Christ forever. “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28) We will never be defeated eternally. God is the only one who can destroy us eternally and praise His name that He is for us.

Rather fear Him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.” (Matthew 10:28) We will never be defeated eternally. God is the only one who can destroy us eternally and praise His name that He is for us.

    If you truly believe in Jesus Christ and have made Him Lord and Savior of your life, you can have confidence in Romans 8:31. God loves His children! Stay strong in the Word and prayer as you strive to live a life worthy of the calling. God bless you
