Sometimes, while everyone is celebrating all around us, we can’t help but feel sad even though it’s Christmas time. Probably because of loneliness, past regrets, failures, failed relationships, or whatever reason, this time of the year can sometimes bring more sadness than gladness.
We would like to invite you to attend our Sunday services starting this Sunday, Dec 2. We are featuring a new series entitled “Joy to Your World.” We hope this series of messages can turn your sadness into gladness this Christmas time. Bring your loved ones and friends.
We have two services: 9 am (Tagalog) and 11:30 am (Taglish). We also have kids church during our second service. See you this Sunday!
Relationships are important. Some people think that work is more important, and that in the end it will bring about true happiness for themselves and for their loved ones. Some people even justify their busyness at work by saying, “It’s all for my family (or loved ones)!” But the truth is this: happiness is not found in work alone. It’s not even found in ministry! It’s found in relationships, first with God, then with family and friends. There’s some value to work, and yes, even in ministry, but we must do them in the context of healthy relationships. Why? Tomorrow we will talk about why we need to focus on relationships. Join us!
Whenever you are afraid or intimidated by what is happening around you, or even inside of you, or among those you love —remember who the Lord is. He is greater than all. If you put your hope in Him, you will never be put to shame. He is able!
The Christian life is not a laid back cruise where nothing much happens. Instead it is called a fight, a good fight of faith. Following Christ is a pursuit of a calling, not a maintenance of religious activities. Only fools approach this kind of life passively.
You can focus on the problems or you can be part of the solution. You can curse the darkness or you can be the light where God has placed you. It all depends on your understanding of who you are and why you are there. Renew your mind and reclaim your true identity and purpose.
A person becomes a leader only by God’s grace. He is able to influence people only because God allows him to have that power. Apart from God he can do nothing. That’s why a leader must guard his heart at all times. The condition of his heart will be detrimental to his leadership.
