Admonitions To Christians For Righteous Living





"God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty
hand, that He may lift you up in due time.
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
Be self controlled and alert.
Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion
looking for someone to devour.
Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know
that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing
the same kind of sufferings."

1Peter 5: 5b- 10


The world as it is, is so evil right now, and darkness has covered the earth. The triumphant laughter of the enemy is heard all over the world. Men have immersed themselves in deceptions. They reject all kinds of heavenly authority and any form of afterlife, reward and punishment. That is why Peter admonished us to be humble so that God can lift us up from the depths of our sufferings. The people of God are persecuted around the world. But we must stand fast and claim God's promises to strengthen and protect us against all the wiles of the enemy. We may be undergoing trials right now but all our Christian brothers and sisters in Christ around the world are also experiencing sufferings and trials of their own. God is strengthening all of us so that we can resist the final attempt of the enemy to triumph over us. But we will prevail and our King will vanquish the enemy and throw him and his minions to the lake of fire together with all those they deceived. But we will be fetched by the Lord so that we can receive the crown of glory from our mighty King in His blissful abode to live with Him forevermore.

oh oh oh...I so love this song! so deep...thanks for sharing the glory of God kuyaMel...may the God Almighty will bless your heart.....:)

============

salamat po kuya Mel...kau din po ng misis mo...sana mag reach din ng 50 years or more yung marriage nyo ni misis...:) for how many years na po pala kayong married?

nako, dpo pastor si hubby...ehhehe! I just thought na mas qualified sya among us to officiate the ceremony...sya kasi yung mas knowledgeable when it comes to Christianity and studying the bible.

honga pala, bat ang mayor pwede magkasal...d naman sya pastor....siguro kasi may legal rights ang mayor to officiate a wedding, right?

napansin ko lang sa mga pari...they will not officiate a wedding kung walang bayad...nakakahiyang isipin talaga.

Hi Dhemz,
25 years na kaming married sa April this year kaya lang hindi siguro makakauwi pa si misis dahil hindi pa rin ayos ang papeles niya. Naiintindihan naman naming pareho yun na pareho kaming dapat magsakripisyo para sa kinabukasan nang aming mga anak. Masyadong malungkot nga ako sa mga okasyon katulad nang Valentines Day at palagi kong naaalala ang mga pagkukulang ko sa kanya at kung gaano siya kabait at maalalahanin. Kaya lang dun kami inilagay ni Lord sa ganuong situasyon. Tungkol sa mga pari na ayaw magkasal kung walang bayad eh mapapakiusapan namn siguro sila kung talagang walang ipambabayad. Hindi naman siguro ganuon na tantanggihang magkasal kung walang bayad. At dalawa nga pala ang klase nang kasal- isang civil wedding na officiated by a judge or mayor na me lisensiyang magkasal at yung church wedding na officiated namna nang pari o pastor. Kailangan pareho yun sa paningin nang simbahan. Thanks for your visit and inspired comments. God bless you all always.

Just wishing you a happy valentine's day Kuya. Umuwi na ba si Mrs?

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Rose,
Thank you so much. Happy Valentines din sa inyo ni John at mga bata. Hindi pa makakauwi si misis. Malungkot nga ako dahil sa April ay 25th wedding anniversary dapat namin at balak ko sanang mag renewal of vows kami sa church. Kaya lang hindi pa rin siya makakauwi dahil kapag umuwi siya ay hindi na siya pwedeng makabalik sa US. Inaayos pa rin niya ang kanyang papeles para magkaroon siya nang green card at ma petition na niya ang mga anak namin. Well, ganun talaga ang buhay, waaaaaaaah, hehehe, lol. Salamat sa dalaw at greetings. God bless you all always.

Belated Happy Valentine's day sa yo Mel at sa Mrs. mo, ngayon ko lang nabasa ang story mo about your married life, ano ba ang feeling pag wala sa tabi mo si Mrs.? parang malungkot ka ano? Kawawa naman, oo nga we need to sacrifice for our children. ilang years na kayong nagkahiwalay? Pwede namang sumama ka sa kanya di ba?

Pag malaki na ang mga kids, pwede na yan. Hope you had a blessed heart's day kahit na sa skype with your beloved...

Hi Sarah,
More than three years na si misis sa America pero hindi pa niya kami pwedeng ipetition dahil hindi pa ayos ang papers niya, wala pa siyang green card. Hindi rin siya pwedeng umuwi sa Pinas dahil hindi na siya makababalik duon. Kaya nagsasakripisyo na lang kami. Kinalimutan muna namin ang aming mga sarili for the sake of the kids. Masakit nga na dapat ire renew namin ang aming marriage vows ngayong April para sa aming 25th wedding anniversary pero hindi nga pwede dahil hindi pa rin ayos ang papers niya. Kaya hirap din siyang kumuha nang maayos na trabaho sa States dahil kulang siya sa papeles at napakahigpit sa US ngayon. Nagbabayad pa kami nang mga utang kaya nagtitiis na lang kami. Salamat sa dalaw at komento. God bless you all always.
