JE # 75 – You Are the Son of God!

Hulyo 27, 2008
I once received a text message thanking me for sharing the Jesus to him. I realized then that I have not been sharing my faith to others who have not heard of my Savior.  How about you? How’s your witnessing?
May this message empower you in sharing the faith. Or if you are not yet a Christian, you be enlightened by the message.

JE # 72 – How to Enjoy Everyday/Anyday

Hulyo 21, 2008

Hello readers! How’s your day? Did you enjoy? Or are you enjoying it? I can hear from the lips of some people, “Lunes na naman!”(It’s Monday again). Monday for them is a curse. Monday is a heavy burden – a start of a week-long work. They fail to see the beauty behind their work.

Today, let’s look at the reasons why we are not enjoying a day and find ways how to really enjoy all day/ any day. Be entertained as Pastor Ed finds humor in different situations of life. He will help us see the positive side of common circumstances. Be blessed.

JE # 71 – Help Save an Angel

Hulyo 16, 2008

A status message on Yahoo! messenger caught my attention the other day. A former colleague was asking for help for her little girl. This cute little angel named Maree has Atrial septal defect (ASD), often referred to as a “hole”, is a congenital heart disease where the wall that separates the left and right sides of the heart had an incomplete closure. The “hole” in the heart continues to grow and the only way to close it is through surgery. The longer the “hole” remains open, the higher the risk of getting further complications and may lead to irreversible damages that even surgery can’t correct.

For complete details of her condition, you may visit these blogs and

Fellow Pinoy bloggers and readers, you can make a difference to her life. For donations, please visit WikiMusicGuide.

Thanks and God bless you.

JE # 70 – The Dishonest Taxi Driver

Hulyo 9, 2008

For some, life is hard these days. But should this be the reason that other people think of cheating?

Last Sunday, before the 2nd worship service ends, I and a good friend left Folk Arts for a Kids outreach in Marikina. We did not waste our time. Immediately,

we found ourselves sitting in a white cab bound to MRT Station in Pasay Rotonda. On the next few minutes, we were arguing with the driver since he was insisting that the flag down rate has increased to 60 pesos. That’s double with the current rate of 30.

I then thought of this verse:

The LORD abhors dishonest scales,
but accurate weights are his delight.

– Proverbs 11:1NIV

But I like how The Message says it:

God hates cheating in the marketplace; he loves it when business is aboveboard.

Maybe he thought he gained from us. I just encouraged myself that I lose nothing. I know that the Lord is just and one day the offender will pay the price.

We Filipinos are known for “bayanihan”. When calamities strike, you can always see fellow Pinoys helping other kababayans. In this time of crisis, the bayanihan spirit should be alive. We are all affected by the crisis but this should not be the reason for us to take advantage of others.

The new taxi fare announced this evening was P40.00 which will take effect any day within this week.

Psalm 1:6 NIV

6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,

but the way of the wicked will perish.

JE # 69- Who Can be Saved?

Hulyo 6, 2008

Doing good means heaven. The idea of doing good deeds will bring us to heaven after we live our life here sounds logical, right? But how good is good enough? Is there any yard stick that would measure our “goodness’ that if reach that level we will get a ticket to heaven?

“All of us have become like one who is unclean and all our righteous acts like filthy rags. ”

– Isaiah 64:6

For God, there is no one righteous. All have sinned.

Meet Robert, not his real name, he works as personal assistant of a celebrity from a giant TV network here in the Philippines. As his boss earns a lot of money, he too would benefit. After he got some huge amount, he would then rush to the nearest beer house and drink until he get drunk. He said that he would enjoy life after his hard work. He woulkd drink and “buy” women to satisfy his sexual desires.

Now meet “Jake”. He was once an active worship leader in his local church. During the early years of his Christian life, people were very blessed in his testimonies and in his worship-leading. But look at Jake now. He has gone astray. He’s living (in sin) with another man. He stopped attending worship services.

Sheryl used to say “canned” prayers at the start of her day. She never fails in her donation to a local church. Most importantly, she neglect not attending the Sunday service. And everytime she passed by a beggar, she dropped some paper bills on their cans.

Who do you think among the three is righteous or good? Robert – who is always drunk? Jake, who was once a worship leader and now living in sin? Or Sheryl who is religious and generous?

Maybe most would answer that it’s Sheryl. That sounds logical. But no one is good in God’s sight. All have fallen short. Since man fell into sin, no one has reached God’s standard of holiness – not even your religious leader. Who can be saved then?

EVERYONE can be saved!

Whether you are a Robert, Jake or a Sheryk, God can save you whatever your situation right now. God’s invitation is for everyone. You can have this salvation free of charge. All you need to do is “Come.” Salvation is freely available and God is inviting you to take this opportunity of forgiveness. There is no small or great sin that He can’t forgive. All He need is your heart – your honest and humble heart.

6 Seek the LORD while he may be found;
call on him while he is near.

7 Let the wicked forsake his way
and the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

Isaiah 55:6-7

We are not good enough to inherit heaven. We have sinned and need to return to God. Call to Him while He can still be found. Don’t wait for the eleventh hour. We don’t know when we’re going to leave this world. Today is the day of salvation. And only in the name of Jesus that we can be saved and inherit eternal life.

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”

– Acts 4:12

Not in your good works, not through your religion or your achievements.

SalvationGod is saying, “Come and Repent!”

Repentance is not just being sorry for our sins. It is turning 180 degrees from our previous sinful life. You can be righteous in God’s sight. Just accept Jesus now as your personal Lord and Savior. His blood has cleansed us from all unrighteousness and your part is to believe that He has done it, that He has saved us from the punishment of sin – the eternal agony in hell.

If you want to accept God’s invitation of salvation. If you want to be with Him forever in His house, you may say this prayer. I will lead you but you should say it from your heart.

My loving Father, I have been sinful from birth. I am sure that You know the sins I’ve committed, for nothing is hidden from You. I admit that I am a sinner who needs Your forgiveness. I’m sorry Lord for the things that I’ve done. Today, I surrender my life to You and turn away from the sinful life. I believe that only Jesus can make me righteous before Your eyes. Jesus, I receive You now as my personal Savior and Lord. Lord Jesus, take over. Here’s my heart, here’s my life. From now on, reign in my life. All these things, I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Did you say that prayer? Now you have a new heart and a new life in Jesus. He wants you to enjoy this new life with Him. Get to know Him better. Read His Word – the Bible. Look for a local Christian church in your area, fellowship with other believers and join a Bible study group where Jesus is the center.

Tell me about your decision, e-mail me at I will be very glad to assist you in your walk with God. My posts here in are designed to help you grow spiritually. If your here in Manila, Philippines, you may want visit my church Day by Day Christian Ministries located in Folk Arts Theater. Surely, there is a Bible study group that you can join with.
