Part 1 – Don’t Read the Psalms

"As you read this portion of God’s Word, make these prayers to God your own, and consider the ways these Psalms are good news to us — expressing the full range of our emotions, and ultimately bringing our minds to rest on the finished work of Christ on behalf of sinners" (ESV Gospel Transformation Bible). As you meditate on the psalms, meditate on Jesus.

Deeper and Wider (Isaiah 12)

Totoo namang napakaespesyal ng araw na ito. 30th Anniversary ng BBCC. Pero di tulad sa nakagawian kapag anniversaries, wala pong special guest speaker ngayon. Pero merong special Word from God. Not just for our church, but for all of you. I take seriously the prophetic role God has given me to preach the gospel and... Continue Reading →

On Bible-informed worship leading

In the span of just one month, I’ve been to quite a few places in Luzon for youth camps, several youth conferences, and youth gatherings. You will not be able to separate music from these types of gatherings, so there we were (me and some of the young men I’m discipling), and we sang and... Continue Reading →

Gospel-Centered Bible Reading

Siyempre kapag New Year, usong-uso ang mga resolutions. Meron tungkol sa diet (babawasan na ang katakawan), sa health (mag-eexercise na), sa social media (bawas Facebook), sa pera (magtitipid na), sa mag-asawa (regular nang magdedate). Wala namang masama kung mag-resolution ka. Mainam nga rin iyan. Ang kaibahan lang nating mga tagasunod ni Cristo, dapat ievaluate natin... Continue Reading →

Lahat-Lahat (Col. 4:7-18)

Oo nga't totoong kay Cristo wala nang kulang, pero ginagamit niya ang ibang tao, mga kapatid kay Cristo, para mas paniwalaan natin sa puso natin ang katotohanang ito. Oo nga't si Cristo lang ang kailangan natin. Pero kaakibat din nito ang katotohanang kailangan natin ang isa't isa. Nadarama natin ang pag-ibig, pagkalinga, pagpapalakas ni Cristo sa atin sa pamamagitan ng mga kapatid natin kay Cristo.

Want to be Like Christ? (Col. 3:10-14)

Sinabi ni Antonio Luna sa movie adaptation ng buhay niya na Heneral Luna: "Mga kapatid, mayroon tayong mas malaking kaaway kaysa mga Amerikano. Ang ating sarili." Totoo din iyan sa ating magkakapatid kay Cristo. Ang totoong giyera natin wala sa labas, kundi nasa loob, nasa puso natin. https://audiomack.com/song/derick-parfan/want-to-be-like-christ-col-310-14 Lahat tayo na mga nakay Cristo lumalaban sa...

The Gospel Changes Everything

First Corinthians 15:1-2 is one of the reasons why I am convinced that the gospel is not just for non-Christians. Whether you are only two months in the faith or over twenty years, you need to hear the gospel - the life, death and resurrection of Jesus for us - over and over and over... Continue Reading →

I Will Boast

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwDMMVsbCkI At the heart of Paul’s message is the cross of Christ. “May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Gal. 6:14). Sapat-sapat ang ginawa ni Cristo. Walang kulang. Ibinigay niya ang kanyang sarili para sa atin upang bayaran ang ating mga kasalanan at upang hanguin tayo mula sa kasamaan... Continue Reading →

Preach the Gospel to Yourself

To preach the gospel to yourself means that you continually face up to your own sinfulness and then flee to Jesus through faith in His shed blood and righteous life. It means that you appropriate, again by faith, the fact that Jesus fully satisfied the Law of God. In both its precepts and penalty, He... Continue Reading →
