“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near.
Repent and believe the good news!”
Allow God to do what he wants to do with you.
This is preliminary definition of the Kingdom of God.
God is King
Do you make God king in all areas of your life?
God wants to do something with you.
Will you allow God to do it?
Speaker: Bro Alvin Barcelona
What does God want to do?
What is God’s nature?
Who is God?
1 John 4:8
“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love”
God is love
That is his nature
That’s who he is
God never stops loving you
God wants to love you
Allow God to love through you.
Be Gods love to others
Let that be your nature
It’s easy to be religious
It’s easy to go to church
But it should not end there
You receive God’s love
but it should not stop there
Start doing things and put faith into actions
“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar
and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you,
leave your gift there in front of the altar.
First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.”
Sacrifice becomes more meaningful if you do this.
Matthew 25:35-36, 40
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you invited me in,
I needed clothes and you clothed me,
I was sick and you looked after me,
I was in prison and you came to visit me.
The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you,
whatever you did for one of the least
of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”
Those things should lead you to act and serve
Jesus is someone you imitate not just someone we worship
You only know as much as you do – St. Francis
Doing rather than understanding
Yes studying and learning about Jesus is important,
but what is more essential is to do what Jesus does.
Religiosity is action
Follow Jesus is love like Jesus
Allow God to love us and let that love flow to others
Mary’s call is our call
We go out and serve others
1. Why Church?
Because Church is where we receive God
But it must not stop inside the church
The purpose is to change the world
The church is not for insiders, it is for outsiders
That’s the mission of The Feast
The Feast is open to everybody
You don’t have to believe to belong
The church is a hospital
We want to be made whole because we are imperfect
Jesus will always save you even if you continue stinging Him
2. Why Family?
Family is the first church
Be like Jesus in the family
The purpose of family is to embrace a bigger family
Don’t be exclusively for your family
3. Why Work?
Bring Jesus to work
Become the best in your field
