The Book of Luke

Reading the book of Luke with an expectation of what God will give is a blessing. I just truly understood what I learned in Bible school about how this book was written to show the servanthood of Jesus. How He came to serve and not to be served. How He had so much compassion for those who are in bondage of sin and sickness. The 8th chapter of Luke is one such example of Jesus’s love for us. There is the one part  when He healed a demon-possessed man starting in verse 26.Or the woman who was bleeding continuously for 12-years, who touched Him by faith starting in verse 40 and afterwards the healing of the daughter of the synagogue ruler, Jairus. In this chapter alone, Jesus showed utmost compassion for the sake of others. Another unexpected attitude from Jesus is when He made a discourse on loving your enemies that can be found starting in Luke 6:27. Jesus even emphasized this twice in the same chapter. Its hard to do but Jesus shows us that we can do it–loving our enemies–and it is not impossible. Jesus loves us so much that He had to come to this earth in a fragile form to direct us to His Father in heaven. He showed abounding love for everyone, high or low, and had compassion to everyone. Jesus loves you and...

My Office Back-up Strategy

I shoot a lot of photos for our office. I cover most of our events, video shoots, stills for our TV specials, and location and studio portraits. Although most of these photos are used on a one-time basis like for our website, www.cbnasia.org or our newsletters, I still need to keep them for our file and reference. Our organization is a Family of Ministries. It is like a holding company. We have sister organizations that I also shoot for, Operation Blessing Foundation, our humanitarian arm (www.obphil.com) and Asian Center for Missions, our missionary training arm (www.acmnet.org).I shoot for all of them too! My backup solution is almost like the same that I have for my personal backup. As you will see in the photo. I have five external hard drives with their respective labels. Yes two of them dont have labels but I’m just getting to stick them. I just keep forgetting. 😎 Anyway, the top drive is a 1Tb Seagate where I store almost all of the images I shot for CBN Asia. The second drive is a 400Gb Seagate for my Macbook Pro’s Time Machine backup. When I get to the office this is the external HD that is quickly connected to the laptop and backs it up every hour as long as it is connected. The third one is a separate 250Gb Seagate used to store...

The Blessing of Coming and Going

In Genesis 47 verses 7 and 10, I noticed this act of Jacob when he came for a courtesy visit to Pharaoh immediately after arriving in Egypt.  This is how it was said in the New Living Translation: v. 7, “Then Joseph brought in his father, Jacob, and presented him to Pharaoh. And Jacob blessed Pharaoh.” v. 10, “Then Jacob blessed Pharaoh again before leaving his court.” Jacob blessed Pharaoh when he came and went from Pharaoh! I find that this attitude of Jacob very inspiring and I hope to start emulating it. I believe that when we do this, especially in places where it is our first time to come, is a great way to show Christ’s love. Wherever we go, we should bless that place and all that is in it. We need to declare God’s salvation, love and grace. Even healing and prosperity. We do this because we love God and want others to be blessed also. Jacob was already 130 years old when this happened. I think he did this all the time and not an exception to this period only. I do not know if it is already tradition during that time but it is very refreshing to read. I hope that more and more Christians will discover this act and start doing it too. We need to be always a channel of blessing...

Are you legalistic?

Mark 12:33, “And I know that it is important to love him with all my heart, and all my understanding and all my strength, and to love my neighbor as myself. This is more important than to offer all the burnt offerings and sacrifices required in the law.“ When Jesus walked on the earth, He often taught people to follow the laws and commandments set forth by Moses. That would not be unusual because during those days, much of the Jewish world revolved around keeping the laws of Moses plus the traditions that were now associated with the commandments. Jesus said that He came to this world not abolish the law but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17). He even goes further in verse 19 and says that, “So if you ignore the least commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.” If Jesus says these words in the Bible, then it means that the laws of Moses are important. Right? But I’ve met people who says that the 10 commandments are “obsolete” just because that they were written in the Old Testament. What more for those other laws that were enumerated in the books of Exodus and Deuteronomy. Of course...

What the Quake in Japan Meant–ABSOLUTELY Nothing

That is if you do not have a love for Jesus and for others. It would mean absolutely anything. The immediate effect to you would probably to be a bit scared and thankful that this did not happened in your country. Then you would go on as if its business as usual. But can I ask you to pause for a while and ponder this: there is a part of the Christian Bible that foretold some of these things. In Matthew 24 to be exact. In verse 7, Jesus mentioned there that earthquakes that will occur. Along with rumors of war and kingdoms rising up against up kingdoms. The succeeding verses speaks of warnings to those that have a personal relationship with Jesus. And they are serious warnings. When you think about it, the frequency of these events are becoming, well,  so frequent. We had earthquakes in Haiti, China, New Zealand and so many other places. But after those events, we just went on with what we were doing especially when it did not happen to you right? Look at the uprising in the Middle East. First Tunisia, then Egypt, Bahrain, Libya, and may parts of Africa. As I write this, there  is something brewing in Saudi Arabia. It would be wise to treat these as the signs being said in Matthew 24. As one speaker said, these are birth pains....
