Holy Spirit- the Reminder

You’ve got this reminder everywhere. In your PC, in your laptop, in your handphone, to remind you the things to do.

According to the bible, the Holy Spirit is the counselor that will teach us all things and will remind us of everything He has said to us.
Be thankful that we’ve got a true reminder of what God says through the Holy Spirit.

But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
--- John 14:26

The Servant of All

Here’s the secret from the bible: if anyone wants to be the first, on the other way around, he must be the very last, and the servant of all.
It’s definitely and totally different from what we know. And it’s entirely different from what the world teach us.
Usually, they say: if you want to be the first, just fight for it, never mind if you defeat others with dishonest ways as long as you are the winner.

But, as God’s children, now we know, we need to make a difference by showing that we need to be the servant of all, the very last, to be the first. (-fon-)

Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all."

We Can Move the Mountain

With faith, even as little as a mustard seed, we’re able to move the mountain. Maybe we’re facing a huge mountain in our life. A mountain of never-ending problems that seem to block our vision. We’re scared, we’re worried, we’re anxious.
But, hey, this is the good news: no matter how high the mountain of the problems that we’re facing, we can move them.
Not with our strength, but with His help. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. No mountain is too high for God. We can move the mountain! (-fon-)

Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him.

Pure Joy

Facing trials of many kinds is a part of our life in this world. But to stay in a pure joy while experiencing trials needs an extra effort, needs our faith to develop perseverance.
While this seems like contrarian, but it’s possible to stay in joy even we’re in the midst of stormy life. It might also seem impossible and irrational, but hey, He’s God! He can turn even the most impossible thing into a possible one. Just keep on believing. Just rejoice!

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.

Never be afraid of temptation because God is faithful and He won’t let us be tempted beyond what we can bear. And also He’ll provide a way out so that we can stand up under it.

Recently I read a postcard with these words: “Faith is like electricity. You can’t see it, but you can see the light.”

Maybe in our previous years, we’ve been living in the darkness. But since we’ve found God, He turns our darkness into light. Let’s keep our light on, let’s keep our faith alive.

You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.

Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam;

The Words Are Flawless

Today the bible reminds us that the words of the Lord are flawless. It’s like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times.

Sometimes when we walk in this life, we might feel scared. There are times that we’re afraid of something. It has happened to each of us.

What can man do to me?

We Are Called to be Holy

This world has got so many things to offer. And the bad offers sometimes are more interesting than the good ones. We need to remember, however, that we are called to live a holy life. And also we need to bear in mind that God did not call us to be impure.
So, stay pure and holy in this world! (-fon-)

Blessed Is the Man…

According to the bible:

Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.

He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.

Be Happy!

In My Paper dated 7th of January, Geoff Tan wrote an interesting article.
He said that his new your resolution is:spreading a little happiness, because happiness is contagious and infectious. You can spread this infectious emotion to the people who may not even know one another. Your happiness can directly elevate the mood of your spouse, children, neighbors, etc.. etc…

The bible says the same thing, if we’re happy, nothing will shake us. So, be happy!

He says to himself, "Nothing will shake me;
I'll always be happy and never have trouble."

Learn to Do Right

It’s really normal if we make mistakes, because we’re only human. Sometimes we do something wrong unintentionally. But if we know that it’s wrong and we do it anyway (read: intentionally), it’s the time to stop!
Like what’s written in Isaiah, we need to stop doing wrong and learn to do right.

wash and make yourselves clean.
Take your evil deeds
out of my sight!
Stop doing wrong,
learn to do right!
Seek justice,
encourage the oppressed.
Defend the cause of the fatherless,
plead the case of the widow.

Learn to Say "No"

Maybe, some of us are people’s pleasers- who don’t want to disappoint others and tend to follow what they want- and that makes us can’t say "NO".

Let those good things be with us always. (-fon-)

It’s really hard to stay positive especially when we’re in bitterness, anger, rage. But we must try our best not to grieve the Holy Spirit. We need to learn to be compassionate, kind, forgiving just as in Christ God forgave us.
