Gospel meeting in Saraza church of Christ on May 19-21, 2010..!
I had been blessed opportunity to attend the gospel meeting in Saraza church of Christ on May 19-21, 2010 in southern Palawan where over 300 kilometers the distance from my hometown Roxas. There are several preachers attended and gave opportunity to preach the gospel. I'm very thankful that they gave me first of opportunity to delivered the Gods word. My lesson is about "The Three Degree Of Salvation" which is 'Justification', 'Sanctification', and ''. I explained well that the first degree of our salvation is we are saved in our past sins by justification [i.e. hear, believe, repent, confess & baptism] (Mt.1:21;Rm.3:24-25 Cf. Rm.5:1-11). Second, we must continue to walk in the light...if we committed sins must be repent and confess to God (1 John 1:7-2:2; Phil.2:12 Cf. 2 Pet.1:3-11). Third, the eternal salvation..the glorification in heaven when Jesus come (Hb.5:8-9; 1 Pet.1:3-5). After me, brother Reuben Tiburan preached about "The Wisdom of God" he emphasized that Christ is the wisdom of God (1 Cor.1:24) revealed in the Gospel and in the Church (Eph.3:9-11). In the afternoon, we moved our services under the coconut and mango tree's. Sapitula preached a great lesson entitled "Church of Christ" he proved scripturally from prophecy to the fulfillment of the stablishment & how to enter in this one true church (Is.2:2-3; Mt.; Acts 2:41,47). Then, brother Boy Stiandan also had given opportunity to preached. He emphasized more that Christ is not a Saviour of all churches of denomination but only one church [body](Eph.; 1:22-23). The brethren in this place are really more encourage the Gods word taught. We thank God for keep us home safe. Thank you for your prayers. May God continue bless us all..!
