“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where, I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I don’t know any other way of loving.” - Pablo Neruda
|In chemistry:||He turned water into wine;|
|In biology:||was born without the normal conception;|
|In physics:||denied the law of gravity when He ascended into heaven;|
|In economics:||He multiplied five loaves and two fishes to feed 5000 people|
|In medicine:||healed the sick and the blind without administering any drug dose;|
|In history:||He is the PRINCIPLE, MEANS and the END;|
|In government:||he was called Wonderful, Counselor, Prince of Peace, King of Kings and Lord of Lords;|
|In religion:||He is the way, the truth, the life and no one comes to the Father except through Him.|
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. (Ephesians 2:8, NKJV.)
We serve such a loving, gracious and generous God. He loves you so much that there isn’t anything He wouldn’t do in order to have a relationship with you. The Bible tells us that sin separates man from God. But God doesn’t want to be separated from us. That’s why He sent His Son into the world—to pay the penalty for sin so that you and I could live in eternity with Him.
So many people today think they have to earn their way to heaven. They think they have to be “good enough” or “do the right thing” in order to be accepted by God. They want to “clean up” before they come to Him. But notice what today’s verse says—salvation is a gift from God. You can’t earn a gift. You don’t pay for it. You can only receive it by faith. If you’ve never made Jesus the Lord of your life, I encourage you to receive this free gift. Let Him fill you with His eternal peace and joy so that you can live the abundant life He has for you.
Happy Constitution Day, Tumblr! To kick things off, may we present the Malolos Congress in Barasoain Church, Malolos, Bulacan, on September 15, 1898 (In glorious color! This is part of the colorized history project of the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office. View our previous digital colorization efforts here.)
The document they produced, which came to be known as the Malolos Constitution, was formally adopted on January 20 and promulgated by President Emilio Aguinaldo on January 21, 1899.
“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV)
Everyone loves to get something new. But as a believer in Jesus, you’re not only getting something new, you are something new. You are a brand new creation! Your eternal being, your spirit, is re-created in Christ. The old is gone, the new has come! You may not necessarily feel new right away. That’s because the Bible tells us that we are to “work out” our salvation. That means you have to retrain your body and mind to act, think, speak and live according to God’s ways instead of the old habits you used to have. Don’t ever get stuck in the rut of thinking, “I’ll never change…that’s just the way I am.” No, the Bible says that the Spirit of God aids us in our weakness. He gives us strength to overcome. He empowers us to live as more than conquerors in this life.
Is there something you want to change in your life today? If you’ve received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then start declaring, “I am a new creation in Christ! I am empowered to overcome! I am equipped to walk in the new, abundant life the Lord has in store for me!”
The Presidential Museum and Library has trudged through the foremost cemeteries of Metro Manila—even taking a peek at memorial shrines yonder the capital—to bring you a comprehensive diagram of the interred historical who’s who. We trudged, I tell you, so do take a gander. When you visit your dead, why not pay your respects to the people who’ve made this country awesomesauce?
