The Word of God for the People of God (Nehemiah 7-8)

Kung hindi ka attentive sa Word, you dishonor God. Salita n'ya 'to, iisnabin mo? Kung hindi ka attentive, pridefully you're starving and hurting your soul. Man does not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God (Deut. 8:3; Matt. 4:4). Magiging malnourished ka, magkakasakit, mamamatay ka if you're not paying attention.

Part 25: Obedience (Luke 11:27-36)

I have a confession to make. Two Sundays ago, I became too impatient. Some of the people in our church noticed it. My wife, who knows me very well, was the one who pointed it out to me. The reason for my impatience? I was expecting people to do what they are supposed to do... Continue Reading →

Loving Leviticus

Loving Leviticus? Hmmm...these two words don't seem to be compatible. Just ask Bible readers - even Christian leaders - and the adjectives that may seem to correspond to the third book of the Bible are "boring, difficult, irrelevant," That may be true if you are looking at Leviticus as merely a code of regulations for...

Ten more days and it's 2012. As pastor of Baliwag Bible Christian Church, I am challenging our church to read through the whole Bible - from Genesis to Revelation - from January to December.

For a lot of people, the word rules has negative connotations. It is something that is restrictive, limiting and controlling. Our desire for independence and self-rule causes us to dislike rules imposed by others, including God's rules written in his Holy Book - the Bible. We complain that it is a burden too heavy for...

Safe Trip

The Christian life is one long journey. Our pilgrimage begins when God changed our heart to start knowing, believing, and following Jesus. The end of this road is the beginning of our eternity with God, infinitely better than this present life. But before we get there, we need to travel this earthly road. Along this...

Blessed

<< Desiring God's Word (Intro to Psalm 119) It is a universal truth that all people, without exception, want to be happy. But the problem is, we define happiness wrongly or in a very limited way. We pursue our happiness in the things that bring only temporal pleasure, but in the end do not really... Continue Reading →

Desiring God’s Word

The Book of Psalms are a feast for the human soul. Of the 150, one of my favorites is Psalm 119. The longest of all the psalms with 176 verses, it has a single theme which runs from beginning to end - the Word of God. Of the 176, here are some of my favorites:... Continue Reading →

Do You Really Believe that the Bible is the Word of God?

We Christians believe that the Bible is the Word of God. But do we live in a way consistent with our belief? If the Bible is the Word of God, shouldn't we read it and study it and listen to it and tremble at it and rejoice at it for what it really is -... Continue Reading →
