The importance of your CELL GROUP and a simple devotion from Hebrews 1:1 – 4:13

Hebrews 1:1 – 4:13

Jesus has to become human in order for him to feel the way we feel. Like every human, He also was tempted but He was able to resist it. It clearly shows that we can also resist temptations. Not only can we fight worldly urges, we can also be Christ-like –imitators of Jesus. Like Jesus we can be forgivers of people who have done us wrong, doers of good, lovers of the word of God and most especially, fishers of men.

Hebrews 3:12-13

                So brothers and sisters, be careful that none of you has the evil thoughts that cause so much doubt that you stop following the living God. But encourage each other everyday, while you still have something called “today”. Help each other so that none of you will be fooled by sin and become too hard to change.

                This passage shows the importance of our “CELL GROUPS”. By being with your cell group you are encouraged and inspired to grow deeper in your relationship with the Lord. And whenever you’re in doubt of your self and your faith is slowly weakening, your cell group will always be there to help you. 

Always take notice of your progress with your involvement with your cell group.

                A simple illustration of this will be a group of coal burning. If you separate a single coal from the heap of burning charcoals, it will lose its heat and the flame will slowly die making it cold. Comparing the coal to US, we need to connect to our cell groups regularly so that we will grow together spiritually and have a deeper connection with the Lord as a group.
                Like the burning coals, let us keep the passion burning within us. Let us desire more of HIM in our lives and maintain a spiritual lifestyle with God as the center of it.

               Let us not grow weary and tired of doing the will of God. As followers of Christ we must press on and continue doing His will before the “day” comes.

                Keep the fire burning!

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
