Homily from Fr. Michael Laguardia

You get back from life what you give to it.

Praying for those who have inflicted you.
This is difficult because the human heart
is inclined to be vindictive.
This consumes us.
We are operated by negative mindsets.
We have wrong mentality.
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

What is Christian attitude?

Jesus teaches us how to be truly human.

Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Be merciful just as your heavenly Father is merciful.

Natural man and Spiritual man.

Not just as human being but children of God.

Forgiveness is the law of God’s kingdom.

We can also chose to be merciful rather than resentful.

Resentment is a prison cell.
We chose to remain inside.

Forgiveness is setting the prisoner free.
The prisoner is you.

To forgive is to liberate ourselves from hatred that consumes our being.

Chose to be vengeful or chose to be merciful.

Speaker: Bro Audie Villaraza

Big Message:
God is enough.

1 Corinthians 7:25-28
Now about virgins: I have no command from the Lord,
but I give a judgment as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy.
Because of the present crisis,
I think that it is good for a man to remain as he is.
Are you pledged to a woman? Do not seek to be released.
Are you free from such a commitment? Do not look for a wife.
But if you do marry, you have not sinned;
and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned.
But those who marry will face many troubles in this life,
and I want to spare you this.

1 Corinthians 7:33-35
But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world
—how he can please his wife— and his interests are divided.
An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs:
Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit.
But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—
how she can please her husband.
I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you,
but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.

These advice from St. Paul (Readings above) are not doctrines
but only his personal opinion.

Being single is a blessing.
Every season in life has a strength.
Enjoy your single blessedness right now.

God is enough to give you joy, peace, purpose, the life that you need.

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

Accept singleness as a gift

If you’re a teenager, expand your world.

Immaturity is the number 1 reason for marriage trouble.

Don’t marry a toddler. Don’t marry a self centered brat.

Immaturity – selfishness, insecurity, impulsivity, immorality

A spouse does not complete you.
A spouse compliments you.

Accept the struggles of singleness.

God allows loneliness to drive us home to God.

Speaker: Bro JC Libiran

Big Message:
You are more valuable than you think you are.

Success does not teach you much, but failure teaches you
the most important life lesson.

You can share your failure
so that others can learn from it.

David committed 2 major sins:
1. Adultery
2. Murder

Reason why David sinned
1. He was not in the battle
2. He was alone

2 Samuel 11:1-3
In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war,
David sent Joab out with the king’s men and the whole
Israelite army. They destroyed the Ammonites and
besieged Rabbah. But David remained in Jerusalem.
One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on
the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman
bathing. The woman was very beautiful, and David sent
someone to find out about her.

You may read the whole of 2 Samuel Chapter 11 here to
know the whole story.

4 Lessons we can learn

1st Lesson: Always be in battle
You cannot relax because evil never relaxes

Speaker: Bro Audie Villaraza

2nd Lesson: Never leave your squad
In the army, a squad is approximately 9 people.
Your squad are the people in your life
– who sticks with you,
– who have the same spiritual goals as you have
– we recommend that you join a light group
here at the feast, these are small groups
who share their life experiences, pray together,
bond together

3rd Lesson: Defeat the enemy when it’s still small.
Big sins usually starts small.
If you lose a battle, you can still recover.

4th Lesson: Never cover your defeat

2 Samuel 11:14-15
In the morning David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it
with Uriah. In it he wrote, “Put Uriah out in front
where the fighting is fiercest. Then withdraw from him
so he will be struck down and die.”

When you cover up the sin,the sin only gets bigger and
stronger.

God cannot heal what you continue to conceal.

Ephesians 5:13
But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—
and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.

Matthew 5:27-28
You have heard that it was said to those of old,
‘You shall not commit adultery.’
But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman
to lust for her has already committed adultery
with her in his heart.

It all starts with just a thought.
While it is still small desire, you crush your desire.

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

What is purity?

Purity is valuing who you are.
It is understanding that God loves you.
And you are precious.

Purity is a gift.

You are still diamond even if you are covered with mud.
You are precious.

Homily from Fr. Balatbat

Do not disregard your emptiness.
Do not disregard your nothingness.
In your empty boat, Jesus is present.
We are created out of nothing.
Grace abounds more on your weakness.
Do not be consumed by the fear of your
emptiness.

Put out into the deep water.
Lord at your command I will lower the nets.

Speaker: Bro Audie Villaraza

You’re still blessed no matter what you are going through today.

Big Message: Your blessing is coming.

Genesis 12:1
The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country,
your people and your father’s household
to the land I will show you.

When God calls you to a mission, He will bless you.

God will equip you of what you need.

When God calls you, it is because He wants to bless you.

God’s calling will always come with a blessing.

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

Genesis 16:1
Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children.
But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; so she said to Abram,
“The Lord has kept me from having children.
Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.”

The blessing of God is not yet coming.
I will take matters into my own hand.

3 Mistakes That We Make When Blessing of God Is Not Coming:

1st Mistake: Often our dreams isn’t wrong, just our deadline.
We underestimate the timeframe
We’re in a hurry, but God is not in a rush.

The real miracle is who you become while waiting for the miracle.
Do not rush
Do not settle
Stick to your values.
It is better to be single than to be married to the wrong person.

2nd Mistake: We want God’s promise but not the process

We have a problem with waiting
We don’t like waiting
We create problem through our pride and impatience

4 Things To Do While You Wait

1. Wish
Write a wishlist.
Write a criteria of what you want
Character – negotiable and non negotiable

Don’t waste your time and tears with recreational relationships.

2. Work on yourself
Work on your mindset
Work on your dreams
Work on your spiritual life.
Be the right partner

You don’t attract who you want, you attract who you are.

God isn’t finished with you yet.

While you are waiting, God is working.

3. Walk
Get out of your circle.
You do something else, until you stumble upon.
Do things you’ve never done before

4. Worship
Your waiting has the higher purpose.
Your greatest need is not a romantic relationship.
Your greatest need is a relationship with God.

3rd Mistake: You prioritize the blessing over the blesser.

Not everyone are called for marriage.
There are people who are not made for marriage.

You need to prioritize God.

Your greatest goal is to love God.

Matthew 6:33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,
and all these things will be given to you as well.

Your blessing will come.
That blessing could be a husband or wife.
That blessing could be a happier single life.

I believe that my season will come.

I have a happier life because the Blesser is in our house.
If you seek the Blesser, the blessing will come.

Speaker: Bro Didoy Lubaton

Happiness is up to you.
If you are looking for Mr. and Ms. right look at yourself first.
We cannot love on our own. Because we are all imperfect people.

Work on the relationship with yourself first,
before making relationship with others.

Big Message: You’re His.

God owns you. He is calling you mine.

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

God will always run after you.

We have a broken psychological mirror.
Your mirror is broken.

You do not attract who you deserve.
You attract who you think you deserve.

Before you enter into another relationship,
repair your broken mirror first.
The only way to do this is to receive healing love.

4 Sources Of Healing Love

1. Through Family

  • Get re-parented by God

2. Get spiritual parents from this journey

  • they may be imperfect
  • you need to have church
  • you need friends who you journey together in following Jesus
  • to survive, you need a family, to thrive you need a family of families

3. Self

  • you need to learn to love you

You want your spouse to value you?
You need to value you.
4. God

  • He says I will always run after you
