Meet Zuckerberg

Hey guys! Meet the youngest billionaire in the world! No other than the 23-year-old Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

He launched the social-networking site from his Harvard dorm room in 2004. Now it's worth a whopping $1.5 billion, earning him the 785th spot on Forbes magazine's annual list of the world's richest billionaires.

"He is the youngest self-made billionaire in human history," said the magazine's editor-in-chief Steve Forbes.

15 minutes?

Oh my! I prepared a 45 - minute message for a speaking engagement but when I saw the program today, I was given only 15 minute talk! How can this be? The one invited me said through our verbal convertation that I will speak to the parents and students during their school family day on the topic " Effect of Parents on their Children". This is a broad and very essential topic,how could the program coordinator allocate such a short time? I began to be irritated when I saw at the end of the program that they have a Family Disco from 6 - 8pm. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! Calling the School Administratior of Sacred Heart of Jesus High School!

is a key component to growth. Sin clogs up our fellowship with God. We’ll feel guilty and distant if we have attitudes and actions in our lives that the Bible says are wrong. That’s where confession comes in. Look up 1 John 1:9. Then read Psalm 32:3-5 about the consequences of unconfessed sin and how to deal with it.

Biblical Perspective

A popular Christian author was discussing his teen years: “I’m thankful I survived them, and that you don’t know anything about them!” The closing verse of Ecclesiastes warns that no one can hide from God. He knows all that’s going on inside us. We may conceal our intentions, be evasive, wear masks, but God knows our inmost secret thoughts. Nothing is hidden from Him.

Life apart from God is empty and meaningless. Life with God is satisfying. Jesus said, “I have come to give you life, and to give it abundantly.” We’re learned from the book of Ecclesiastes that God takes us from futility to faith.

Kids' Internet Exposure

With the easy access of the Internet, parents find it hard to shield or protect their children from pornography. Now, in addition to the exposure kids might encounter from magazines and Cable TV , most school-age children and adolescents are spending large amounts of time online for homework Monitoring your children online activities is a challenge. So it is a must for parents to be extra alert on this matter.

Sunday Sermon

Talk to Others about God
This is called witnessing. I like what the devoted apostle Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 5:17-20, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”

An old saying....

Remember the old saying, "Do what I say, not what I do?"
We all want it. We all expect it. Yet, we want others to earn it from us. How is that supposed to work?

Sunday Sermon

The Bible is the very word and will of God, preserved for us so we can get to know who He is and what He wants for our lives. 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” That is why we need to spend time reading the Bible every day. If you don’t have a Bible that’s easy to understand, make the trip to a local Christian bookstore and purchase one. If that is not possible, many libraries have them available to be checked out. Some suggested translations are The New Living, The New International Version or The Message. Begin with the Gospel of John in the New Testament. (This Book, sometimes referred to simply as “John”, is the fourth book in the New Testament, near the beginning, not to be confused with 1 John, 2 John and 3 John, found at the end of the New Testament.) I like using a journal or pad of paper to write down inquiries and observations. Answer these two questions for each chapter: What do I learn about God or Jesus? Are there things discussed that I should begin practicing or avoid altogether? This will help you to see that the Bible is very practical to your life today. After you finish John, just keep going all the way to Revelation.

When we read the Bible we learn how loved we are by God. “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” (1 John 3:1). We learn that we are entirely new people because we’ve invited Jesus to be our Savior and Lord. Read Ephesians 1:3-14 and spend a moment listing all the things that are true of you as a Christian. Amazing, isn’t it?

Knowing God better

How can we grow and get to know God better? These were some of the very first questions I asked myself as I began my relationship with God. Maybe they’re similar to the ones you’ve been deliberating. I knew so little about the things of God that I had a hard time even articulating some of my musings. But thankfully I had an older Christian in my life who introduced me to four simple ways to get on the growth path. I still remember them, still use them even though I’ve walked with Jesus for over 30 years. My prayer is that they would be a helpful boost as you discover what’s next in this life called Christian

Talk to Others Who Know God

This is simply called fellowship, hanging out with other people who love Jesus. It can be at church, in a Bible study or in a small group. It is for purposes of growing together (Acts 2:46-47). Many of us will need to make new friendships and learn how to have fun in different sorts of ways. By spending time with believers, our behaviors begin to change and we learn what older believers look and act like.
