Sermon: “I will Rejoice in the Lord” (Hab. 3:16-19)

It is good to be optimistic. Pero dapat realistic din tayo. Expect what is best, but prepare for the worst. Kailangan natin ng assurance, yung hope na naka-anchor sa truth of God’s word hindi yung positive thinking lang, wish lang. Yun lang naman kasi ang makapagbibigay sa atin ng anchor for our joy.

Part 2: Great Joy

Two weeks ago, our second son was born. We named him Stephen Lucas. Jodi and I are delighted, obviously. Even our relatives, friends and our church family rejoiced with us. There is indeed great joy when a new life was born, when a new member of the family arrived. We are glad because Stephen is God’s gift to us. And with this gift from God, you also celebrate with us.
