DR. ED M. LAURENA

As our country experienced the “world’s strongest” typhoon this past Friday, I am saddened by its tragic results. It only proves more that our real hope is in God alone. Thousands of people lost their wealth and their loved ones unexpectedly. We may have limited ability to help them materially, but we certainly have the answer to their spiritual need. As children of God, it is our big responsibility to tell every person we can talk to about His saving grace so he/ she can be assured of Heaven, and be prepared to meet his/her Creator. That is what our Missions month is all about. Let us continue to have a deeper realization of what the world needs as we show more compassion so the lost ones can know that they need Jesus Christ. Because of sin, our world is bound to corruption. Let us realize that God is commanding us to go, and as a church we should be united in fulfilling His command. Let us respond to go, give and pray to reach more! May we be sensitive to the Holy Spirit as God’s Word is declared today!

David Livingstone went to Africa. He was an explorer, a doctor, a geographer, and a missionary. He opened up the entire continent for mission work. He said, “I’ll go anywhere provided it be forward.” He died upon his knees in his hut, praying for Africa. The natives insisted his heart be buried in Africa while his body was shipped back to England. Notice the words he penned to a song: Lord, send me anywhere. Lord, send me anywhere. I consecrate my life, Lord, to Thee. Lord, since Thou hast died to give Thyself for me, No sacrifice could be too great for me to make for Thee. Lord, send me anywhere, only go with me; Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. Sever any tie; save the tie that binds me to Thy heart. Lord Jesus, my King, I consecrate my life, Lord, to Thee. I follow Thee, my Lord, and glory in Thy wondrous cross, I gladly leave the world behind, and count all gain as loss. Lord, send me anywhere, only go with me; Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. Sever any tie; save the tie that binds me to Thy heart. Lord Jesus, my King, I consecrate my life, Lord, to Thee.

'Not heard the call,' I think you should say. Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear Him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell, and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father's house and bid their brothers and sisters and servants and masters not to come there. Then look Christ in the face — whose mercy you have professed to obey — and tell Him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish His mercy to the world." — William Booth, "The true greatness of any church in not how many it seats but how many it sends!" — Unknown

GOD-GIVEN MISSION MIDST A

STORM’S AFTERMATH "He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven”- Psalms 107:29-30. One of the astonishing events in the earthly ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ could be found in Mark chapter 4 where He rebuked the raging winds and the tempestuous seas by saying “Peace be still,” and then there was a great calm. In the light of the recent super typhoon “Yolanda” which left a great devastation in the country, well-meaning people had hoped that Jesus could have come and uttered the very same words to calm the storm and make the winds to cease. If the LORD wills it, He could have done just that. However, the temporary physical salvation of those precious folks is only of secondary importance to the salvation of their eternal souls. Of the massive deaths brought about by natural disasters and calamities, we Baptist Christians wonder about the destination of their souls. The message of the great successive natural calamities and various political turmoils that plague our nation is a call to move away from apathy and beg for God to give us a heart and vision to be able to realize and see the spiritual need of our nation. It is indeed an urgent call to put this verse into action: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will hear their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14). Said events are a message for us, as God's people, to hasten. As soldiers of the Cross, we

must hasten to proclaim salvation to the lost and we must deepen our relationship with and consecration to God so as to have efficacious testimonies that beam as shining lights for the furtherance of the Gospel. This is no time to engage in the luxury of complacency or to take the easy road of compromise. Now is the high time to make known the promises of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now is the time to rise from a deep and selfish slumber of Christianity to the sunlit path of the Great Commission by proclaiming and supporting it as expressed by the verses, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:19-20). Now is the time to raise our nation from the quicksands of idolatry, paganism, and pluralism to the Only True God and Saviour, the Solid Rock of the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us always seek for men to gain freedom from the penalty and bondage of sin. Let us not wallow in selfish comforts and self-absorption. We must forever conduct our life toward the high plane of devotion, dignity, and discipline anchored on the Word of God. We must rise to the majestic heights of aiming for God's approval with zealousness and sincerity, by His grace and through His power. So then, will we truly calm the storm and bring them unto their desired haven.

Bible Reading

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 impiyerno. Magtiwala ka kay Hesus ngayon! Roma 6:23 “Kung ipahahayag ng iyong bibig na si Hesus ay Panginoon at mananampalataya 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. Magsisi ka sa iyong kasalanan. 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 ng dugo ni Hesus at Siya ay namatay sa krus para sa akin. Nagsisisi po ako sa 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.
