Sermon Take Away: A Not Now Moment

Scripture: I Samuel Chapter 1 In the inspired word of God, we learn so much about the remarkable lives of his people who trusted in him. Even during times of uncertainty or disappointments, the one constant factor remained that their God had the power in their lives. We experience a no response from time to time when we make a our request from God. In I Samuel chapter one, there was a devoted woman name Hannah who did not give up on her much wanted request. Hannah was one of two wives of Elkanah. She was not able to conceive … Continue reading Sermon Take Away: A Not Now Moment

Scripture: Matthew 16:24-26; Mark 15:21; Luke 23:42; Matthew 27:54 The cross is an immediate reminder of death. For Christians, it is an emblem of the suffering of Christ.

The weight of the cross that Christ carried was heavy. Yet, the symbolic gesture of the cross indicates the burden of the world that Christ did carry. But his suffering was not done in vain. When he reached Calvary, which is also called Golgotha, it … Continue reading Sermon Take Away: From the Cross to Calvary

Sermon Take Away: To God Be The Glory

Scripture: Luke 23:39-46; Philippians 2:9 ♬To God Be the Glory♬ is a very thoughtful song. Glory is profound praise and thanksgiving for his goodness and righteous. His mercies and grace to us are simply magnificent. While singing the song, my thoughts centered on how do we give God glory, when glory is the reflection of God. We give Him glory when we accept and acknowledge the best gift given to humanity, Jesus Christ. It is through Christ that we are made a peace with God.

Scriptures: Matthew 6:1-13 Even in the most difficult moments, it is good to know that the spirit of Christ is with you. He said that he would be with you at all times. Yes, he is.
