The Ultimate Test Of Faith (Genesis 22:1-14) by Ptr Xley Miguel

We can see here a well-trained, a mature believer of God who is being tested by God. And the test proves that Abraham indeed have genuine faith, right. And this is what true faith really is. It accepts the commands of God. If God says this, since he has true faith, “I will do it!” Ganito yung nangyari kay Abraham. Ginawa ni Abraham. He has true faith and true faith accepts also not just the precepts, not just the commandments, but also the commitments of God, the promises of God. And that is also what we have seen in this passage this afternoon. True faith even at times of trials.

Our Faithful Encourager (2 Timothy 2:8-13) by Deacon Glenn Deduque

And this event became one of the life-changing events for the protagonists of that story; simply because they were weak and helpless against the enemy. However, the one who protected them left them with a great encouragement by his brave example and parting words: “If you are feeling disheartened that you are somehow not enough. “Set your heart ablaze.” Dry your eyes and look ahead. You may feel like digging your heels in. But the flow of time waits for no one. It won’t patiently stand by as you grieve. Don’t feel bad that I’m going to die. As a Hashira… It’s natural I’d protect you all. The young buds must be allowed to bloom. Any other Hashira would have done the same as I.”
Like the helpless slayers, Christians are in a battle. They are in a battle to kill their sin. And encouragement is needed to continue fighting this daily battles of the Christian life. And believers find them not on something that is temporary, but something that is eternal, rather Someone that is eternal. Our Faithful Encourager, Jesus Christ, who sets our hearts ablaze not only by His Word and faithful example, but also in His person and work for everything hinges on who He is and what He has done.

Stand For Truth (2 Timothy 2:14-19) by Bro Neil De Arroz

So our message this morning is something that evidently Paul knows, something that evidently what causes Paul to write this way to Timothy and the message is this: The church is built by the Gospel truth and shunning of lies. Again, the church is built by the Gospel truth and the shunning of lies.
