John 3: 14 - 21 - For God So Loved the World

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted up,
15 that whoever believes in him may have eternal life."
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
17 For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
18 He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.
21 But he who does what is true comes to the light, that it may be clearly seen that his deeds have been wrought in God.

Ebanghelyo (Gospel)                         Juan 3:14-21
               14 At kung paanong itinaas ni Moises ang tansong ahas doon sa ilang, gayundin naman, kailangang itaas ang Anak ng Tao, 15 upang ang sinumang sumampalataya sa kanya ay magkaroon ng buhay na walang hanggan. 16 Sapagkat gayon na lamang ang pag-ibig ng Diyos sa sangkatauhan, kaya't ibinigay niya ang kanyang kaisa-isang Anak, upang ang sinumang sumampalataya sa kanya ay hindi mapahamak, kundi magkaroon ng buhay na walang hanggan. 17 Isinugo ng Diyos ang kanyang Anak, hindi upang hatulang maparusahan ang mga tao, kundi upang iligtas ang mga ito sa pamamagitan niya.

               18 Hindi hinahatulang maparusahan ang sumasampalataya sa Anak. Ngunit hinatulan na ang hindi sumasampalataya, sapagkat hindi siya sumampalataya sa kaisa-isang Anak ng Diyos. 19 Ganito ang paghatol ng Diyos: naparito sa sanlibutan ang ilaw, ngunit inibig pa ng mga tao ang dilim kaysa liwanag, sapagkat ang kanilang mga gawain ay masasama. 20 Kinasusuklaman ng mga gumagawa ng masama ang ilaw, ni hindi lumalapit dito upang hindi mahayag ang kanilang mga gawa. 21 Ngunit ang namumuhay ayon sa katotohanan ay lumalapit sa ilaw, upang maihayag na ang mga ginagawa niya ay pagsunod sa Diyos.


Purpose 9 Our Goal is to make God smile.

Purpose 9 Our Goal is to ake God smile.
What makes God Smile?

During Noah's time only he can  made God sMILE. Because the entire worlld had become morally bunkrupt.

There are five acts of worship that make God Smile

  1. God Smiles when we Love him supremely. What God wants most from us is a relationship."I don't want your sacrifices-I want your love; I don't want your offering- I want you to know me" Hosea 6:6
  2. God Smiles when we Trust Him Completely.  Noah pleased God by trusting God. "By Faith, Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land. He was warned about something he couldn't see, and acted on what he was told...As a result,  Noah became intimate with God." Heb 11:7
  3. God Smiles when we Obey Him Wholeheartedly. Noah built a boat and saving all the animals according to God prescribed it. He obeyed God completely and he obeyed exactly. That is whole heartedness. Doing God will without hesitation. Most of the time we offer God Partial obedience.  Wholehearted obedience is done Joyfully, with enthusiasm.
  4. God Smiles when we Praise and Thank Him continually.  After surviving the flood, Noah first act was to express thanks to God by offering sacrifice. Because of Jesus sacrifice, we don't have to offer animal sacrifice. Instead we offer god sacrifice of praise (Heb 13:15) and sacrifice of thanks giving Ps116:17
  5. God Smiles when we use our Abilities. Every human activity, except sin, can be done for God pleasure if you do it with an attitude of praise. We don't bring glory or pleasure to God by hidding our abilities or trying to be someone else. Anything we reject any part of yourself, we are rejecting God's wisdom and sovereignty. Every act of enjoyment becomes an act of worship when we thank God for it.

Since God knows what is best, in what areas of life do we need to trust him most?

"The Lord is pleased with those who worship him and trust his love" Psalm 147:11

Purpose 8 Planned for God's Pleasure

Purpose 8 Planned for God's Pleasure 

Bringing enjoyment to God, living for His pleasure is the first purpose of your life.  God has feeling too. He feels angry compassion, sorrow and sympathy. God loves, delights, gets pleasure, rejoice and even laughts.

  1. Bringing pleasure to God is called Worship. "The Lord is pleased only with those who worship and trust his love" Ps 147:11
  2. Worship is far more than music.  Ther is no biblical style of music. Worship is nothing to do with the style, volume or speed of a song. It is word that make the song sacred not the tune. 
  3. Worship is not for your benefit. God's heart is not touch by tradition in worship, but by passion and commitment. "these people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me Their worship of me is made up only of rules by men" Isa 29:13
  4. Worship is not part of your life, it is your life. Worship is not only for the church services and in every time of our life.  " worship Him continually and praise Him from sunrise to suset"

Everything you do can be an act of worship, when wwe do it for the praise, glory and plesure of God.  " So weather you eat, drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Cor 10:31
