Arise…

My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.”
1John 3:18

…in deed

In Colossians 1, I learned that it is Jesus who presents us holy, blameless and above reproach before the Father. So therefore, all we get to do every morning is disciplining ourselves to offer our body parts alongside His presentation. God sees Jesus in us. Isn’t this the grandest truth!

I get to partake of God’s remembrance during the teachers’ devotional time after school at CLC everyday. He reveals much to me…to each one of us. The children are children, each one seeking attention. I am in awe that it was the way of the children with Jesus.

Do you remember how Jesus is always surrounded by children? How He reminds you and me that faith must needs be like that of little children. I am so humbled, and because I now know each one of these 4th, 5th, & 6th Graders by name, I get to call them by their first names.

His ahavah(love) and shalom(peace) towards me overwhelms me.

“Fear not for I have redeemed you, I have called you by name, you are mine.”
Isaiah 43:1b

…in truth

The Bible Study in Biñan got a kick start and I thank God so very much. I know it is an answered prayer…it just never occurred to me that I will be His sent one and that it would happen last Saturday (August 11). My honey needs to be here.

How beautiful it is to be discipling the family…my own brothers, their wives, their children and my own son partaking. Though my flesh suggests it is a toil to do, it is an hour drive is all from where I am staying, my Father tells me to go. He directs my steps continually.

Do place it in your hearts to pray for their “growing in His grace, being filled in the knowledge of His will, in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, to lead a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God, and giving thanks to the Father who has qualified them to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.” Colossians 1

Miriam suggests I should just stay through Sunday so that I may be able to give them some of my time. I see the wisdom in it but I will take it one weekend at a time and trust God to direct my steps. All in His care. I surrendered in peace and let go of the original plan to stay close to Quezon City.

He says let’s go to Dasmariñas on weekdays, let’s go to Biñan on Saturdays, I will wait and see how He wants to handle my Sundays. I was really blessed to be visiting the Church of God in Jabez last Sunday. Do pray for what God has planned in as far as the role of this local church in seeing to the building of My Father’s House Bible College in Tagaytay City.
