Shepherding those who are Suffering

What should we do now to minister to our suffering people? I hope na itong mga principles na ibabahagi ko ngayon sa inyo ay makatulong sa inyo para manatiling naka-angkla ang ministry natin sa di nagbabagong mga katotohanan ng Salita ng Diyos.

When Pastors are Suffering

I invite you sa first session na ‘to he honest with ourselves, with each other, with our church and especially with God. If our members are suffering, tayo rin. Di naman tayo exempted. Hindi lang tayo leader, member din tayo ng church. Hindi lang tayo pastor, isa rin tayo sa mga tupa.

“The Salvation of Your People” (Hab. 3:8-15)

In Jesus we have victory, we have hope, we have assurance. Mula pa sa simula, hanggang ngayon, God declares an all-out war against his enemies to accomplish salvation for us. Di man natin nakikita ang kaaway natin ngayon – especially itong coronavirus ngayon – ang mahalaga ay tingnan natin kung ano ang ginawa na ng Diyos para sa atin through the work of Christ on the cross.

“In Wrath Remember Mercy” (Hab. 3:1-7)

Meron naman talagang time to discuss, to study, to argue, to ask questions. Meron ding time to listen, time to reflect, time to look back sa work ni God in history – especially the cross. This is a time to worship God, believe in God and rejoice in God. Yun ang pinakamahalaga sa lahat. Tulad ni Martha, we can be distracted about so many things sa pandemic ngayon, trying to resolve problems, navigate tensions, but forget the one thing necessary, to listen at the feet of Jesus and worship him.
