Laguna Preaching

Last Sunday, our LG Leader was appointed to preach at His Life City Church, Biñan, Laguna. She appointed Tinay for the opening prayer, Mie for the welcoming, yours truly for the love offering and Krisette for the introducing of the preacher. This Laguna preaching is also a bonding moment for our group though Christi and Borj did not make it to come with us due to some commitment at family and work.

As we are heading to the Church at Laguna, Krisette lead the prayer for asking God’s protection and travelling mercy. We can feel the presence of our Almighty Father while Vinky is driving the car.

When we reached the place, they were surprised by the look of the new Church. (It’s my first to go here). They told us that the former church is just like a house but now it’s fully air-conditioned, it can accommodate 100 people and the equipments are now improved / upgraded.

Jeng exhorted the last week message entitled, “The Gift of Choice”. The church define “Choice” as one of the most important gift from God, some take this gift for granted and some do not know how to use its advantage. Our Pastor derived this message from the scripture in Deuteronomy 30:15-20, NLT.

15 “Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster. 16 For I command you this day to love the Lord your God and to keep his commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in his ways. If you do this, you will live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you and the land you are about to enter and occupy.
 17 “But if your heart turns away and you refuse to listen, and if you are drawn away to serve and worship other gods, 18 then I warn you now that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live a long, good life in the land you are crossing the Jordan to occupy.
 19 “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! 20 You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This[a] is the key to your life. And if you love and obey the Lord, you will live long in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

Our Pastor also exhorts the quotations below that Jeng also shared during her preaching.

“What you are today is a byproduct of the choices you’ve made in the past.”

“What you will become in the future is a result of the choices you make today.”

Every single day we are confronted with a choice. A choice that will impact our future.”

There are 5 pointers for this message.

First, THOUGHTS. We can choose to worry and be sorry later or we can choose to trust God and be confident of the outcome later.

Second, WORDS. We have the power to choose our words, right or wrong.

Third, ACTIONS. We can be reactive or proactive.

Fourth, HABITS. Developing great habits is of utmost importance. They also say that it takes 21 days to develop a habit.

Lastly, CHARACTER. Choose character before reputation because reputation is what people think of you but character is what you really are. And a man’s best collateral is his character.

After the preaching, Jeng asked the people to raise their right hand to those who want to receive Jesus as their personal God and Savior. Then Tinay and I ushered the people to come in front. When Jeng is finished praying, she told us (Tinay and I) to lay hands the people who came in front. Suddenly, I can’t help myself but cry while laying my hands to them. Wanna know why? God told me, “Do you still remember it? You already do this when you are a child.” I nod my head, and then He told me again, “You will lay your hands to more people in the future”. Then Jeng saw me crying and she hugged me.

After the service, we went to Tita Julliet’s house to eat lunch and to have a little chit chat with her. Before we left, we prayed to God to bless her business and her ministry.

We leave HLCC, Laguna at exactly 1pm to catch the Third Celebration at HLCC, Pampanga and we are favored enough to come 1 hour before the last service. Wiiii! Praise God!

Let’s pray.

Dear Daddy God,

We thank you for the victorious day and for the travelling mercy that you have given to us. Father, it’s only by your grace why we are able to stand in front of your people. We also thank you for the privilege to bond with our life group, to Vinky and to our brothers and sisters in Laguna. We bring you back all the praises, glory and honor. In the most precious name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus. Amen!
