Love doesn’t have to be complicated.

However, it’s not the love that’s complicated. It’s just that we are the ones who complicate the love.

When we do relationships God’s way, in God’s will, following God’s Word, it really shouldn’t be that complicated.

Isaac found Rebekah because God put them together. It was a match made in heaven.

Here’s a message to explain further.

If we have the victory through Christ, why does it seem like we still lose some battles?

Is it possible that we are fighting with the wrong set of weapons?

The Bible tells us that the battle we fight is not against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against spiritual powers. What this means is that we do not fight physically, emotionally, or even verbally, but we fight in the spiritual realm.

Here is a message on how to fight the battle using the spiritual weapons God has given us in Ephesians chapter 6.

I remember a time when I played Little League Baseball. We were all pumped up and ready to play against our opponent. We got to the field in Seafront (right on Roxas Boulevard). Right after we got off the bus, we all rushed to the baseball field to warm up.

Ten minutes passed by, our opponents hadn’t arrived.
Twenty minutes.
Thirty minutes.
One hour.

In our minds, our opponents forfeited the game.
Now, these were the days before mobile phones. Not even pagers existed.

But because we normally played in 2 venues alternating, what we thought was a won ballgame due to forfeiture was a default on our part.

The game for that Saturday was supposed to be at the Manila Polo Club.

When we don’t know where the game is, we cannot actually play.

In the same breath, when we don’t know where the battle is, there’s no way we can fight.

The battle ground is first and foremost in the mind.

Watch the message below to learn more about where the battle field is.

 As we begin this year, we all have promises we are holding on to from God.

Just like the Israelites, God had a promised land for them. That being said, it is a known fact that while there’s a promised land waiting for them, there are still giants in the land that they had to defeat. It was still a fight.

The Bible says that we have an enemy. His name is Satan. Our battle is not against flesh and blood but against spiritual powers.

The following is the message I shared from Genesis 3 exposing the origin, character and work of the enemy. While he exists, the truth still stands: HE IS A DEFEATED FOE.

Greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world.

 

Talking about the most important thing in your life can also be the most difficult thing.

I’m referring to our relationship with Christ.

Sharing what God has done and how you have come to faith in Him, particularly to your family, relatives and friends can be tricky, not to mention difficult.

I spoke to a friend who is also one of our Victory Small group leaders yesterday. He has found a simple way to share his faith to friends and family… PODCAST.

He said that he would pray and ask God for direction. Then he would sent the link of the particular podcast he thinks will speak and minister to their needs at the time.

That way, they can either choose to listen to it right away, or later, or never.  But he said, it has been an effective door opener to talk about Jesus when they would see those he sent the podcast links to.

As a matter of fact, he already has a friend who started coming to church as a result. He would come late because he’s still feeling his way through the “praise and worship” part, but enjoys the message immensely.
