John 15: 12-14 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.”
WHAT CAN I GIVE YOU?
Good morning my dear brothers and sisters in Christ!
I am delighted and thankful to the Lord and for Rev. J Wayne Vaughan for giving me this opportunity to preach the Gospel about the love of Jesus Christ.
For the past two years, I had joined the Rev. Brice Harris of the First United Methodist Church of Melbourne during the celebration of the World Wide Communion Service.
Praise the Lord! Rev. Wayne expressed his interest to lend me his pulpit, that is why I am here this morning ( and some of the members and supporters of the Filipino Mission Fellowship) all for the glory Jesus Christ.
I believe that Jesus Christ must always be the central focus of every Christian message.
If we try to analyze the situation nowadays, the name Jesus Christ is creating controversy among the people especially the so called non-Christian.
This past week on the episode at Bill O’Reilly show, he interviewed the student president of the San Mateo High School who gave permission to the organization of a group or a club… and believe me or not this group is Satan’s Club.
I could not comprehend why there are people who can allow Satanism as an organized group to exist within their premises.
But, what is sad to say is that if you use the word Jesus Christ…too many people will react… too many people will disagree because according to them it is a violation of their religious right. Some say it creates division.
I just received this paper and I was really saddened by their stand… Let me read a portion of this report…. (Read ACLU Report)
As Christians, how are we going to react on issues like this?
I will not wake you up my dear brothers and sisters. We are awake!
It’s really happening in our present world. There’s a lot of shameful and shocking realities that is creeping in our society today.
We need to do something my dear friends.
We cannot afford to keep our mouth shut. We can’t just sit and let go of, the issues confronting our faith. We need to do something in our own little way.
Let’s pray to God to unzip our mouth so that we could share to the World that there is only one solution to all the troubles and dilemmas that is happening nowadays.
Do you know Him? His name is Jesus Christ- our forever Faithful Friend.
When I was still a child, our elders impressed, in our mind that American people are the most generous and helpful people living in this planet.
As a boy, not too long ago…because our house is situated less than a mile away from the Clark Airforce Base, everytime we saw Americans or White Guy, we shouted, hi Joe! or Hi Kano! Short term for Americano.
The Filipino people really admired the Americans, and we will never forget this brave gentleman who liberated us from the Japanese occupation and his famous statement; “I shall return.” by Gen. Douglas Mc Arthur.
