A Changed Life

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17
The moment we enter a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit starts to re-new us – our personality, our behavior, our judgment – into becoming more like Christ.

The old things that we use to enjoy wouldn’t give us pleasure anymore.

The first thing you will notice in a newly-“born” Christian is his changed life. It is the very first sign that a person sincerely accepted Jesus Christ in his life.

Our Ultimate Comfort

Posted by Raymund Tamayo


Looking back on what God has done for me strengthens my faith for the future. I realize that even if you ask for comfort, God may not give it to you if it will keep you from doing what He wants you to do. Our ultimate comfort should be the thought that one day we will be with Him forever.

My Thoughts on God’s Promise of Eternal Life

Post written by Raymund Tamayo



I’m sure of God’s promise that whoever has Jesus Christ in his life has eternal life (1 John 5:11-13). Why? Because He said so. That is what I believe. That is my faith.

The nature of my personal relationship with Christ

Christ is a kind, caring, encouraging, compassionate, and generous Father and friend to me.

I never doubt His love for me. I love Him in return. I’m loyal and faithful to Him.

Through wisdom from His Word I know what He wants and I try to do as it is.

If I were to sin, I’m confident of his forgiveness and mercy, but will not abuse it.

He is my protector and refuge. I have faith in him.

What makes me want to follow Him and do what is right? My love for the Lord. That is the driving force of my life.

It is really all that simple.

"Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart." - Psalm 37:4

"You have found your delight in the Lord, and He has placed within you the desires that are from Him, for Him, and can only be fulfilled by Him. Never step away from trust in His timetable, even if it means waiting a lifetime. He who placed His desires in you has the power to fulfill them, the knowledge to know how, and the wisdom to know when the time is best." - Roy Lessin, www.meetmeinthemeadow.com

"He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them." - Psalm 145:19

"It’s not the depth of your intellect that will comfort you or transform your world. Only the richness of your heart and your generosity of spirit can do that." – Rasheed Ogunlaru
Generosity is not only about money. It is also about contributing something positive to the world to make it a little bit better.

The great thing about this is when many people contribute something positive, these small contributions can become huge. And what if everyone did that?

Be Inspirational

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

“The most important thing is to try and inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do.” – Kobe Bryant

You know that you are doing something right when you are able to inspire other people rather than making them feel bad about themselves.

One of the most profound things you can do for others is to inspire them to reach their full potential. To help them achieve their true greatness. To make them realize the reason why on earth they are here.

But you cannot become inspirational if you yourself are not inspired. Inspiration begins within you and how you think.

Lead Your Year in Prayer

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
Not everyone is excited about beginning a new year. For some, it is a reminder that life is just passing them by and they are still far away from their hopes and dreams. Others think of a new year as something dreadful because they are obligated to do “promised” resolutions. While there are also people who are plain indifferent about starting a new year and see it as just another ordinary day.

As children of God, the New Year should hold great importance to us as it means that God took us through an old year and is ready to be with us again in the coming year, and the years ahead.

Resolve to Live a Godly Life

It’s the beginning of another year and people are psychologically triggered to make New Year’s resolutions. If you ask me, I’d rather create good habits one at a time, and put off old bad habits to start the year. 

I’d also rather take you to the book of Psalm chapter 101:2 where the psalmist King David said “I will be careful to lead a blameless life – when will you come to me? I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart.”

Morning Praises: Eternity with Christ

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

“Here is a trustworthy saying: If we died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him.” 2 Timothy 2:11-12a
Life on earth is temporary. It is only a blink of an eye compared to eternity. Can you imagine spending eternity with Christ? Indescribable.

All the hassles, hardships, and heartaches I face here on earth turns into nothing when I think about spending forever with the Lord.
