Thoughts these season.. who am i and spiritual success

1. Are we so concerned with what others think that we miss being who God created us to be?A good question posted by Rob Bell's nooma productions this is just the preview of his topic and i want to watch the rest.. but it does stir allot of memories when i was a kid in search of who i am..



2.Oswald Chamber's warning against spiritual success..
"In Luke 10:20 , Jesus told the disciples not to rejoice in successful service, and yet this seems to be the one thing in which most of us do rejoice. We have a commercialized view— we count how many souls have been saved and sanctified, we thank God, and then we think everything is all right. Yet our work only begins where God’s grace has laid the foundation. Our work is not to save souls, but to disciple them. Salvation and sanctification are the work of God’s sovereign grace, and our work as His disciples is to disciple others’ lives until they are totally yielded to God. One life totally devoted to God is of more value to Him than one hundred lives which have been simply awakened by His Spirit."

These 2 points are related in a way if we don't know who we are in God's eyes we will try to get our identity in our success..

Luis L. Pantoja Jr. THD

I went to a memorial service for Pasto Luis Pantoja a commemorative Prayer meeting hosted by GCF-Peel. It was a touching event for I only met Pastor Luis once here in Canada during a church picnic last month. Its a pity I did not get to talk to him.

In the prayer meeting I heard so many funny, meaningful stories about this great man. A man greatly loved and for he loved much.

Epitaph for his cremated remains: "A handful of ashes now vaulted in this corner, with nothing to boast but grace from his maker"

I happen to read his Limericks..

Limericks on my life

Limericks are short verses generally but not always funny. Here are some about my career

Once on fire, in a suit and tie
By the hand of God and the will of man

Now he's fired, in sackcloth retired
By the hand of man and the will of God

The Lord has given, He has taken away
I tread the path, He leads the way

Flip the new page, blank with no stain
God in my old ag…
