“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:15-16
Church In Action
From the Pastor’s Desk
e are now on the first Sunday of May, and I thank God that He has been continually blessing His church and its ministries. I still hear several good responses from our last week’s youth conference, and I also see your excitement and involvement in our upcoming Daily Vacation Bible School. Our theme for this month is, “Revival through Holy Living.” Every believer must have a desire to live a holy life pleasing unto God. We will never be sinless on this side of life, but we have the precious Word of God to teach and instruct us to sin less. Christian life is not designed to be like the world, but to be a light in this darkened world. Our testimony, our walk, our talk, our attitude should all reflect that there is a Saviour living in our hearts. As such, I encourage you to continue your faithfulness in church attendance and soulwinning. This is the place where we will be taught to live holy and help others to live a holy life as well. That is the life pleasing to God.

“BE YE HOLY” Beata B. Agustin “Be ye holy, for I am holy!” Such declares God’s sovereignty… …His sovereignty as the supreme Almighty Deity. We must bow to Him with humility… …Submitting ourselves to His authority. “Be ye holy, for I am holy!” Such affirms God’s greatness… …His greatness along His gentleness. We must shine through His goodness… …Consecrating ourselves to His graciousness. “Be ye holy, for I am holy!” Such reverberates God’s warning… …His warning against transgressing, trespassing, and sinning. We must repent with sincerity’s well-meaning… …Yielding ourselves to His reigning. “Be ye holy, for I am holy!” Such speaks of God’s demand… …His demand attesting His gift of life so grand. We must abide by His Word, whereupon we stand… …Dedicating ourselves to His mission-errand. “Be ye holy, for I am holy!” Such asserts God’s justice… …His justice above our vanities. We must entrust to Him our uncertainties... …Laying ourselves to His wise practice. “Be ye holy, for I am holy!” Such announces God’s requirement… …His requirement amidst His sacrifice-fulfillment. We must comply to His faith-building agreement… …Committing ourselves to His service-empowerment. “Be ye holy, for I am holy!” Such assures God’s victory… …His victory among our righteous deeds’ story. We must rely on His might in the ministry… …Overcoming ourselves with prayer for His glory.

Bro. Ariel Almario Our area, Area 14 particularly covers the following places in Cabuyao, Laguna: Mamatid, Mabuhay City, and Baclaran to Gulod. We already have more than 50 active members and out of them, ten are regularly involved in soul-winning, and have willingly joined church ministries as Sunday School teachers and choir members. Three young people had surrendered their lives full-time in the Bible School in the year 2009-2010. This coming June 2010, we are aiming, by God’s grace, that two young people and one adult will enroll as full-time Bible School students. Currently, we use three jeepneys every Sunday in fetching visitors and members. We are bringing an average of three first time visitors. Truly, God is good all the time. He provided us with a Bible Study Center located in Mabuhay City. Such is greatly used as a venue for our soulwinning endeavor and Bible study every Thursday at 6:30 pm, including our prayer meeting until 8:00 pm, as well as our Area devotional meeting every Saturday before going out for soul winning and visiting new converts. By God’s grace, we have a fruitful Area ministry because our beloved Pastor is continuing his labor in doing the great commission. Prayerfully, we, Area 14 members are united in supporting the God-given vision of our Pastor for God’s glory. We are thankful again for another privilege given to us to support our NBYC 11. We are delighted to see our young people committing and surrendering themselves to God’s will. Right now, we are exciting to conduct our Area DVBS, and to experience God’s power through the participation and contribution of our Area members. To God be the glory! ACTS 29 | MAY 02 | PAGE 05

“It is a mistake to suppose that God does not want us to be holy until death, for that would mean that He wants us to be unholy until death. God does not want us to be unholy at any time.” - Anonymous
Ayon sa Biblia, Iisa Lamang ang Daan Patungong Langit!
ng sabi ni Hesus, “Ako ang daan, ang katotohanan, at ang buhay: walang makapupunta sa Ama kundi sa pamamagitan ko.” Juan 14:6 Wala nang iba pang makapagliligtas sa iyo mula sa impierno. Magtiwala ka kay Hesus ngayon! (Roma 6:23) “Kung ipahahayag ng iyong bibig na si Hesus ay Panginoon at mananam-palataya ka nang buong puso na Siya’y muling binuhay ng Diyos, ikaw ay maliligtas”. Roma 10:9 1. Aminin mo na ikaw ay isang makasalanan. Roma 3:10 2. Talikuran mo ang iyong mga kasalanan (magsisi). Gawa 17:30 3. Manampalataya ka na si Kristo Hesus ay namatay para sa iyo, nalibing at nabuhay namagmuli. Roma 10:9-10 4. Sa pamamagitan ng panalangin, tanggapin mo si Hesus sa iyong puso bilang iyong Tagapagligtas. Roma 10:13
MANALANGIN KA NG GANITO Panginoon, ako po ay isang makasalanan at nangangailangan ng kapatawaran. Nanampalataya po ako na nadanak ang dugo ni Hesus at Siya ay namatay sa krus para sa akin. Tinatalikuran ko na po ang aking mga kasalanan. Tinatanggap ko po si Kristo Hesus sa aking puso bilang aking Tagapagligtas. Amen. Kung tinanggap mo si Hesus bilang iyong Tagapagligtas, ito na ang simula ng iyong bagong buhay kay Kristo (Roma 8:1). Ngayon: 1. Basahin mo ang iyong Biblia araw-araw upang makilala pa ng lubusan si Kristo Hesus. 2. Makipag-usap ka sa Diyos sa panalangin araw-araw. 3. Manambahan ka sa isang simbahan na pinapangaral si Kristo at ang Biblia ang tanging pamantayan. 4. Ibahagi sa iba si Kristo Hesus.
