On Church Discipline Part 1 (1 Cor. 5)

We don't decide for ourselves kung ano ang tama patungkol sa sex or any relationship. Hindi kung ano ang gusto natin, hindi kung ano ang socially and culturally acceptable...Ang standard at boundary natin ay kung ano ang sinasabi ng Diyos. We don't take church discipline and holiness seriously because we take our sins or that of others lightly.

Violation and Confrontation (Nehemiah 13)

Matigas ang ulo natin. Matigas ang puso natin. Pero di tayo pababayaan ng Diyos sa katigasan natin. He will use other people to confront us. At gagamitin din tayo ng Diyos to confront others sa kanilang kasalanan. Tulad ng ginawa ni Nehemiah.

Confession and Commitment (Nehemiah 9-10)

Mahalaga ang confession of sins - both private and public - para maging totoo ang repentance. But it must also be followed with a commitment to obey God. Your confession is not true repentance, kahit na iyak ka pa ng iyak, kung walang pagkamuhi sa kasalanan, at pagnanais na sumunod sa kalooban ng Diyos.

Confession and Repentance (Ezra 9-10)

Mahirap na masanay sa kasalanan. Noong una mong ginawa naramdaman mo ang konsensya mo na nagsasabing guilty ka. Pero pag naulit, at kung paulit-ulit, natatahimik na ang konsensya mo, nasasanay na, namamanhid na ang puso mo, may kalyo na. Kahit pa laging nakikinig ka ng sermon every Sunday o sumusunod sa Bible reading plan, you can remain unmoved by the Word of God. Delikado 'yan. Wag sanang mangyari 'yan sa bawat isa sa inyo.

Part 11 – David and Bathsheba

Binanggit ko sa dulo ng sermon natin last week na "We need God's scandalous grace everyday." Pinost naman ni Jovi 'yang quote na 'yan sa FB at may friend siya na nagtanong sa comment, "Bakit scandalous?" Tinanong ako ni Jovi kung paano ipapaliwanag. Di ko muna sinagot. Di ko pa naman talaga naipaliwanag 'yan last... Continue Reading →

Part 5 – A Broken and Contrite Heart (Psalm 51)

Pinag-aaralan natin every Sunday ang Psalms at binabasa din araw-araw para matutunan natin ang iba't ibang expressions kung paano aawit ang puso natin sa pagsamba sa Diyos. But how can you worship and sing if your soul feels guilty and dirty because of the sins you have just committed? Or kahit yung matagal nang kasalanan... Continue Reading →

Narito Lang Ako Para Sa’Yo

Sermon by Ptr. Marlon Santos  Confession and prayer is one that God has been teaching our church. This comes with an admission of one’s sin and sharing with the family in Christ that is not a common thing to do. But God has a Good News for us - Jesus’ victory over sin and death...

Part 4 – The Power of Confesssion

http://www.audiomack.com/song/derick-parfan/4-the-power-of-confession Talo si Pacquiao kay Mayweather. Tsk, sayang. Nang iannounce kung sino nanalo, hirap tayong makapaniwala na talo si Pacman. Kasi naman siya ang gusto nating manalo. Ayaw natin sa kalaban niya. Tapos parang siya pa ang aggressive, sugod nang sugod, tapos itong si Mayweather, depensa lang. Pero sa scorecards ng mga judges, panalo talaga... Continue Reading →

Every Time You Ask for Forgiveness

God "calls us to humbly confess that we really do love ourselves more than we love him and others. He invites us to admit how regularly we demand our own way. He welcomes us to own up to our anger, greed, envy, and vengeance. If his kingdom is ever to fully and completely come, it... Continue Reading →
