Caught on TV--Man rescued in a rubberboat asked, "28 na ba ngayon?" Cameraman: "Opo, 28." Man somberly replied, "Bday ko na pala." Rescuers who were paddling hard turned to him in surprise... before slowly singing, "h......a...ppy.. birth..day... to you..." Even in the midst of devastation the Filipino spirit never ceases to acknowledge and celebrate the gift of life.

Preaching a full sermon infront of an audience for the 1st time

My 1st preaching stint in Hungry Moses Hamstad Sweden! I was nervous but i really felt the Holy Spirit encouraging me.. Joakim a good friend and who loves Jesus was my interperter.... The Topic Salvation.. here are my notes.

Ephesians 2:4-5 , 2:8-9
4-5 But God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were DEAD because of our sins, He gave us LIFE when he raised Jesus from the DEAD(it is only by grace we have been saved!)
8-9 God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this, it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done so none of us can boast about it.

Ephesians 2:4-5a God so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were DEAD because of our sins…

Define dead? (in English, maybe in tagalog, then Swedish) Emptiness..Everything we do ultimately feels empty.. Loneliness, life with no purpose, bitterness always angry, confusion, insecure and being shy, feelings of being imprisoned!

What do we do to fill this emptiness? We have relationships for the sake of just having one and wanting to be loved, studies being filled with knowledge, pursuing wealth, trying t…

and God speaks..

Im in the midst of a personal breakthrough and these are God's reminders for me:

1. I am not the savior but God is.. i cant save, let the Holy Spirit speak and change hearts.
2. Worry is a sin, dont allow anything or anyone steal my joy.
3. Faith, just believe.

the bible verses that confirms the reminders..

psalm 37
5 Commit everything you do to the Lord.
Trust him, and he will help you.
7 Be still in the presence of the Lord,
and wait patiently for him to act.

psalm 32
6 Therefore, let all the godly pray to you while there is still time,
that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment.
7 For you are my hiding place;
you protect me from trouble.
You surround me with songs of victory.
8 The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.
I will advise you and watch over you.
9 Do not be like a senseless horse or mule
that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control.”

I really need to truly win this battle of faith, i need to get t…
