Faith Pleases God

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” – Hebrews 11:6
Our relationship with God through Jesus Christ is largely determined by our faith. When we come to Him, we must believe that He exists and that He is exactly who He has revealed Himself to be in Scriptures.

Whatever God is, God does

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." – James 1:17

It is impossible for God to act inconsistently with His character. In other words, whatever God is, God does.

I CAN RELY ON GOD

For example, I may be a patient person, but I still have impatient moments. Not God, the great “I AM” is always the same, patient and loving. I can rely on Him 100% of the time to be consistent to His character.

God Empowers Us

“For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, He will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.” – 2 Corinthians 9:10
God is equipping us to be successful and has empowered us to overcome in this life.

GOD GIVES US SEED TO SOW

When Jesus sent His disciples out to heal the sick, meet their needs, and share the Gospel, He told them, “Give as freely as you have received” (Matthew 10:8). In other words, God has given us everything we need to do what He’s called us to do in this life. He’s given us seed to sow in order to have an abundant harvest in our future.

Final Notes:
God has placed seed in our hands today, but in order for that seed to produce, it has to be planted. It has to be watered. It has to be fertilized. 


Let’s ask God to give us wisdom on where to plant our seed. Let’s make sure we are sowing in the right ground and tending to the seed He has given us. Remember, God has a good plan for our future. He has plans to bless us and increase us.

Create in Me a Clean Heart

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” – Psalm 51:10
We often think of our heart as our “love” organ, where in fact it is our “life” line. It is the organ which works to make blood flow within our veins, keeping us alive physically. The blood that keeps our body alive in the flesh flows through our veins, and as Christians, the royal blood of our master, Jesus, also flows through our innermost being, giving us eternal life and a changed life.

Led into Difficulty

Raymund's Note: This sermon by Dr. Paul Chappell is re-posted from www.dailyintheword.org.

“And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.” - Luke 4:1–2
There is a widespread idea today that if we are doing what we should, everything will work out wonderfully—we won’t get sick, we won’t have money trouble, and our families will enjoy peace and harmony. Yet the Bible paints a different picture. While there are blessings for obedience, the Christian life is far from being simple and painless. There are times when doing exactly what we should do leads us to difficulty and hardship. Jesus was not out of place when the devil came to tempt Him. He was exactly where the Holy Spirit had led Him.

7 Signs that You Are in a Wrong Relationship

Post written by Raymund and Denielle Tamayo


Photo source: www.lovepanky.com
In this post, we have compiled 7 signs to recognize that you are in a "wrong" relationship. It applies to both married and unmarried couples, but the applications from each would be quite different from one another.

We believe that marriage is a lasting covenant done with God and so recognizing that a marriage relationship is wrong should not end up in divorce or separation from our perspective, but it should be worked out by both partners, of course, with the help of God.

However, if you are still unmarried, then there is a lot to think about these 7 signs of a wrong relationship.

Christ Makes All Things New

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” – Revelation 21:5
In Christ, we don’t get something new… we become new. We become a brand new creation, re-created in the character of Christ. Working out our salvation means re-training our mind and body to live a life pleasing to God.

Daily Dependence

Raymund's Note: Taken from "What Matters Most for Men" by Mark Gilroy Communications


Photo source: www.biblestudytools.com
“Trust the Lord with all your heart, and don’t depend on your own understanding. Remember the Lord in all you do, and he will give you success.” – Proverbs 3:5-6

We rightfully teach our children – and attempt to live our own lives – by the credos of responsibility, self-control, and mature self-reliance.

And yes, being responsible is a very good thing. But when our attitude reaches the point where we trust more in ourselves than in God, twin temptations, both that lead to spiritual shipwreck, suddenly confront us.

Whom Should You Marry?

Posted by Raymund Tamayo



“It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a contentious woman in a whole house.” – Proverbs 21:9

During Biblical times, women were often viewed as men’s property, good for bearing children and not much more. 

The Book of Proverbs addressed the young men of that time who were approaching the age of marriage to take a different view.
