God of full goodness

'How great is our God' this worship song is so awesome mann!!! Just thinking about how great is Him.... Thought of an overview...

God of truth
-John 8:32
'You will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.'
:Our God is a God of truth. No deceit was found in His mouth. Therefore, he is the truth that let our whole life be set free.

God of righteous judgement
-Galatians 2:6
'God does not judge by external appearance.'
:For example, in worship, you may sound ugly when singing. But fret not, Jesus judges people from the heart, from the inside. Just like how He appointed apostles, it is not through how good looking they may be, but how their purity is presented to Him.

God of grace
-Ephesians 4:32
'Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgive you.'
:How much we may sin, Jesus is always ready to forgive us, for it is through His grace that we start to fear Him.

God of light
-Luke 2:32
'A light of revelation to the Gentiles.'
:You may be messed up in regards to your life, but God will be that light who brings you back to Him, back on the right track, just as How He did it for the Gentiles.

God of care
-Matthew 11:28
'Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest,'
:We may feel emotionally or physically exhausted, but as the God of care, He allows us to come to Him, because He knows how we feel.

last and yet the most important of all....

God of love
-John 3:16
'For God so love the world that He gave His one and only son, so that whoever who believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.'
:This is the love of God that He expresses through sending His son to Earth to suffer for us. Even before we knew Him, He paid the price for us, just for our salvation.

God is so good! How great is our God!!! let the whole rejoice at His name....

Forgive or excuse

by Monday, June 21, 2010
I believe sometimes when we sinned,we do ask God for forgiveness. But sometimes the way we ask, it sounds as an excuse, maybe through our friends, we sinned or something.

Given an everyday life example. Perhaps you are parents and are quarreling over some common issues, maybe because of children. When we are all angry, I believe we will let anger rule over us and let God be forgotten. There, you start to shout and let out poison from your mouth.

Then, while praying and asking for forgiveness, some may state it like this: Jesus, forgive me for quarreling with my spouse today, becuase he is too demanding or something, and sorry for letting anger arouse... It appears like you are asking God for forgiveness, but in actual fact, you are using your spouse as a shield for your sin, which is a cover up, excuse. And I think this is totally worng.

Take for another example, the instant where Adanm and Eve sinned because of temptation from the serpent. They let greed rule over them and hence made the wrong choice. Now, when God walks to them and asked Adam and Eve how their eyes were opened, they blamed it on either party, which meant they thought they were not wrong at all. They wanted God to forgive them, for they did not sin on their own accord.

Its not that I want to talk about the past, its just that I feel Adam and Eve should not find excuses and push responsibilities to either party. Rather, they should have begged God for forgiveness. I feel if they had done that, history would change.

Since God created us, and we may sin, lets not find an excuse for ourselves that we are wrong, but go and repent and ask God for forgiveness, not including any names to our prayer. Of course, our God is a God of grace, and I believe no matter whether we may find excuses to cover up or did the latter, God will still forgive us. But it is better to just ask God for forgiveness instead of pushing the blame to someone else. As long as you repent, God will forgive you. So, treat others as how God treats you, with forgiveness, not an excuse to cover upon.

'Love your neighbour as yourself.'
Galatians 5:14

The guide of the light

by Thursday, June 10, 2010

'You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.'
Matthew 5:14

I believe some of us experencing things like when we dedicated or re-dedicated our lives to Jesus, He will place a passion, a godly one, into us, letting us go crazy over it and want to accomplish it as soon as we can. But don't you realise that after a while, like maybe a few weeks or months later, this passion of ours will start to slowly diminish?

Take for example, a passion for your generation, maybe sharing the word to our friends. There will be a time of the peak where we go bold and step out for this gospel, our generation which will rise. But as time goes by, maybe because of rejections faced and examinations, we start to neglect this passions? Or maybe because we left our church and the linkage between us and God starts to break apart and we drift away?

I want to share with you all today, that no matter whether your passions start to die or whether you are currently drifting away, the guide of the light, Jesus, will try, or rather, make sure you will get back to Him. Because you are the light that God wants to work upon, He will always stand by you. Even when you feel lonely, like when you are praying and you feel that you are talking to a block, the guide of the light will be with you, pulling you through every strom that may come and let it be calm.

So, not only let the guide of the light be in the presence of your life, be a light that will start to glorify God. Be like Jesus, be a light for your friends and family!

Here I am for you to use, Lord

'For it is God who works in you to will, and according to His good purpose.'
Philippians 2:13

Even as everyone has been saved, we jolly well know that God will put a call into our lives. Maybe it is for our family,our generation, or for the restricted nations. Even through serving, we are all committing to a God who will reward us in every good thing we do, like a Father patting his son's back, telling his son that he has done well.

God knows where we are, where we are proceeding to and what we are going to do beforehand. Putting total trust in a God who cares for our well-being, isn't this good? Since we know this fact and are putting our trust in Him, why not also declare that here we are for Him to use?

Through worship, service, or even going into prayer, let everything we are doing be of clarity to Him, that we want Him to use us. No matter how useless you may think you are, how small you think you may be; good news! God can make you bigger and wider than you think you are. He will make you feel useful till when you start doing His will, you will ask yourself, in the end, how can you accomplish this. Let strength start arising in all, let all start to look up to God, saying," here I am for you to use, Lord."
