A Confession of Salvation

I have been a church kid for so many years and I thought back then that since I am of a Christian family, my salvation would automatically follow. So I got involved in various ministries not really knowing if I did it on purpose, for self-gain, or for other vain reasons.

So how did God find me and call me?

Here’s my confession of salvation. (published on SAVED App)

The Lord has been good to me for giving me an opportunity and time to write again. Recently, I volunteered to write for SAVED App.  But this one’s not about my writing; it’s about this cool stuff. So allow me to introduce you to SAVED App.

Interview with a worship leader

Recently, the Lord gave me a one in a million chance to be interviewed by a Christian website (http://www.worshiplinks.us/)–a site that “provides readers with links to great resources about leading worship”. It has been very humbling and overwhelming to share experiences, few tips, and some words of encouragement to my fellow worship leaders out there.

I hope that the interview will also inspire my readers in this blog.  This privilege caused me think if I should put up a “Worship Leader’s Journal” or “Worship Leaders’ Corner” page in my blog.  What do you think guys and gals? 🙂

Reprise: Do all your work in love

Love talk series continues in ChristianBlessings blog, Christian Tagalog Talk section. I hope that my posts there inspire you in your everyday walk of life. In case you missed the last post (Do all your work in love), you may view it here. In line with that, I thought of sharing something with you today which I stumbled upon the internet last week.  I must admit it provoked me to reflect and ask myself how to do the similar act of love with the gifts God has given me.

I am talking about no other than the admirable deed of a Filipino hair stylist, Mark Bustos, who is now residing at the New York City.  I know this is not among the latest news features today; it actually circulated through social media and dailies around August of this year.  I’m pretty sure some of you might have had already heard about him offering his haircut service for free to homeless people within the vicinity.

You may view full articles and look at the transformation photos in the following links:

Now, I do not know if he’s a Christian or not. But setting religion aside, what he has done and has been doing until the present time is indeed commendable.  He shows a concrete example of sharing love to others, even to people we do not personally know.

We need not be rich to extend some help to those who are in need or to give our contributions for the betterment of our society.  I have always believed that part of God’s plan in humankind is that each one of us should participate in building up each other in love and in good faith according to the gifts God has given us.

In the case of Mark Bustos, he knows he has a talent in hair styling/hair cutting, and he took advantage of this gift to give back to the society by offering his service to the homeless for free.  This way, he gives hope to these people.  If you read the articles, the transformation story and feel-good effect of the people are tear-jerking.  One even asked him right after his haircut, “Do you know someone who’s hiring?” cause he once again felt that he looks good enough to search for a job.

Bustos said he intentionally cuts hair for the homeless in open, well-traveled spaces like street corners and sidewalks so that the public can watch — “not to see me,” he notes, but so that others can find inspiration in the good deed, and be kind to those less unfortunate as well. “Even a simple smile can go a long way,” Bustos told HuffPost.

Simple acts of love can result to great stories of transformation in people’s lives.

Christians, where are we now? What are we contributing for the wellness of the world God has created? What cause are we living for in the name of God’s love?

How then should you love your neighbor?

From last week’s post (Who is my neighbor?), let’s now take a look at how then we should love our neighbors.

ChristianBlessings

Last time, we were able to identify our neighbor in the commandment, “love your neighbor as you love yourself”.  In this post, let us take a look at the weight of love that we ought to give our neighbors by looking again to the very words of Jesus.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.14 You are my friends if you do what I command.

“Love your neighbor as yourself”…so who is my neighbor?

Sequel to “Revisiting the Two Greatest Commandments

To recap last week’s introductory post for our “love talk” series, here’s a photo verse that says it all:

1 John 4:20-21 Illustration by Lara Harwood – www.laraharwood.co.uk

36 “Teacher,” he asked, “which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and the most important commandment. 39 The second most important commandment is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ 40 The whole Law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets depend on these two commandments.” ~Matthew 22:36-40

In marketing, you cannot meet your goals if you do not know your target market.  As Christians, our goal is to obey God’s commandments.  So he said, love the Lord, and love your neighbor.  In the first command, it’s quite easy to point who should be the…
