Standard

Hey guys,

This is Kenneth.

Today is Sunday! Yes, my favorite day of the week!

This week, we talked about ‘Relationships’. Specifically, relationships as husband and wives.

Come to think of it, having broken families nowadays are very common, its like a fad. Lol

To be honest, not that I am proud, but I am part of a broken family myself, my Mom and Dad are separated and I live with my Grandma. Although, I am still praying for family restoration tho.

The thing is, Satan is putting immorality in our minds as if its okay.

Question: Why do we need to live pure and holy lives?

  • Higher Standard

We should not just run away from immorality, impurity and covetousness but we should walk in wisdom and live a high standard life.

God is the author of sex, therefore, He is the only legitimate source of its fulfillment.

  • Coming Judgement

When we don’t meet Jesus’ expectations, there is judgement.

If we won’t be strong, judgement will come. If Christians do sexual immorality, judgement will come to us.

Use Jesus’ grace to put a wall and say NO! to immorality because we are children of God.

“Both money and sex are for loving and giving, not lusting and getting.”

Edwin Louis Cole

Additional Information

Love is the desire to benefit others, even at the expense of self, because love desires to give. Lust is the desire to benefit self, even at the expense of others, because lust wants only to get. Love is easily satisfied; lust is insatiable. Love is the nature of Heaven, while lust is the nature of both a living and eternal Hell.

  • Divine Pleasure

We live holy lives because God is pleased. If we raise our standards in sexual immorality, Jesus is pleased.

  • How then we could walk in purity?

    1. Accept God’s moral standards.

    2. Flee from immoral and compromising situations.

    3. Store God’s word in your heart.

    4. Walk in accountability and transparency.

Out of the abundance of your heart, the mouth speaks, you will do whatever is in your heart. That is why store God’s words in your heart.

When we walk in light, we walk in purity, we allow Christ to shine on us.


So yeah, after the service we had the ‘God Test Training’.

Thank you, Sir Louie for the impartation.

So yeah, before the training started, we had a game called ‘Find the gold coins’. Since I was one of the member of the team behind the training, I did not take part on the game, but still I found this.

I actually found a real coin. How cool is that?!

In light of Jollibee’s very famous tv ad nowadays, we gave away free burgers to all the participants. We also changed our profile pictures to celebrate the ‘God Test Festival’.

After the training, we had lunch at KFC. (Blurred, sorry)

So yeah, after lunch, I attended ‘The Purple Book’ class with my buddy, Godi. The funny thing is that, Godi and I memorized three bible verses because they told us to do so, but turns out, they forgot to ask us to recite them, instead, they gave us three more verses to remember and the entire books of the bible to memorize!

Ma’am Loi gave me this because I answered her question lol. Thank you!

After the class, Guia and I were asked to stay for a meeting after the 5pm service, since it was like 4pm then, I asked Guia to hangout for awhile while waiting for the meeting, that is when Sir Louie decided to come with us.

Had KFC fries and Farron’s coffee frappes while sharing lives with each other.

So yeah, we had a meeting for the upcoming big event on the 24th. We ended up pretty late again, good thing Kuya Robert took Guia and I home, thank you very much, Kuya Robert!


So yeah, even though I was 13 hours away from home, it has been such an amazing day again. Thank you, Lord.
