Abide in Me

Before 2018 ended, we went up to the Cloud of Glory Prayer Mountain in Lilo-an Cebu. It is a place where our church built for us to get away from the hussle of life in the city and seek the face of God.

For the past two years I have asked the Lord for His one word for me every year. Or should I say, my spiritual theme for the year. This year, God’s one word for me was REMAIN. In another translation from the Bible – ABIDE. Continue reading

God is Holy (Part 1)

We started the year with a new series for our family devotionals – The Attributes of God. This series will give our kids the opportunity to know who our God is.

The Attributes of God is essential to our faith. It is the foundation of our faith. It is then important to intentionally teach this to our kids because this will answer the questions; who God is and why we should believe and trust God.

God’s Holiness is the first attribute we shared to them. Read more to know why we first discussed the holiness of God.

Key verse: Revelation 4:8 “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God the Almighty, who was, who is and who is coming.” Continue reading
