May 7th, 2012
DISCLAIMER: I really dunno How this happened. How my heart now is so on fire with discipleship.. God’s Truth led me to be wanting this… and here’s a short testimony and realization on How God is working in my life! GOD IS REALLY AMAZING!! Isn’t He? :)
WE WERE CALLED ACCORDING TO GOD’S PLAN NOT OUR PLAN.
SO WHEN OUR PLANS FAIL.. HIS, WILL PREVAIL.
(Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21)
HELLO. MY NAME IS PEARL AND RECEIVED JESUS AS MY LORD AND SAVIOR ON JULY 07,2010.
GOING BACK FROM BEING REBELLIOUS TO BEING SAVED AS A CHRISTIAN,
I WAS SO ON FIRE FOR GOD!
I immediately served at the Kids’ church and then started doing ONE2ONE with the youth from Touch Point ( an outreach college worship service for Victory Fort). After almost a year of being in victory,
I started serving in the music ministry as a back-up vocalist for the main service and a worship leader for the kids’ ministry.
By September 2011, I started serving That Friday Thing(an in-reach worship service for high school) [in place of Touch Point because my schedule couldn’t handle it anymore.] And then I also was a part of a Ten Days Mission in Thailand.
I was so on fire for God, serving His Kingdom the best I could… But “one conversation with God
changed it all.” — ALL MY PLANS? SCRAPPED. FAILED.
Yes, i was failing, spiritually stagnant. so.. the overflow? THERE WAS NO OVERFLOW.
Of course I had to feed myself spiritually with the Sunday services, ministries I had, small groups and hang outs. But NO, NOTHING.
Even when I had given up the kids’ ministry thinking— “Yea, I must’ve had so many ministries.”
BUT still NO. MY PLANS FAILED. I hit the ground so hard, and I was broken. And in my brokenness,
God worked. I had nothing, no one. Except my brokenness— which resulted to ‘full dependency and trust.’
He worked on that “RAW MATERIAL” — through my broken heart, he showed me TRUTH.
He put in to light all the lies I’ve been living- “as a Christian!”
Honoring God? Making Disciples?
What did these really meant? To honor God by making disciples? Yes? Maybe?
But not mainly! You can be serving in the church like me BUT DISHONORING GOD!
Until the reality.. the TRUTH of WHO God is and WHAT He has done for you hits you hard in the face,
you will never understand what it means to Honor God and make disciples!
It will only be a technical thing for you, a responsibility unless the truth hits you!
And its painful!
It hit me so hard that my eyes were opened to the painful truth.
BUT IT’S BEAUTIFUL! The beauty of Truth is so painful!
And this is the truth! That I am not worthy of anything but God’s mercy showed me,
In view of His mercy I saw how I was dishonoring Him by serving… HALF-HEARTED!!
And I didn’t even realize it! Why? BECAUSE I WAS SO SELF-CENTERED!
(If God’s truth were really ‘slaps in the face’ my head could’ve literally fallen off!)
But never was I condemned by God’s truth!
Yes, I’ve done so many bad things— in my past sinner life, and EVEN in my past
so-called Christian life, but God never condemned.
HE FORGAVE. HE LOVED.
His MERCY is new EVERYDAY!!!
I STILL SIN… Yes. There are mornings when I would still wake up crying,
asking God for forgiveness at His feet. But every time I remember
how God cancelled all of my debts, I rejoice! I worship! And I am able not to sin anymore!! (you can read Luke7:36-52)
IT HURTS TO SIN (even just thinking of sinning) when you have experienced His mercy!
I WOULD NOT DARE REJECT GOD AND SLAP HIM ON THE FACE!
yes, this is what we do every time we sin.
TRUTH HURTS. But we all need it!
we people always want care! We want Blessings! We want love!
BUT WE NEED TRUTH!
you call yourself a Christian when you live a life of lies? that’s sin!
Trying to conceal yourself with all your works?
Listen, listen to that voice inside you. Listen to the HOLY SPIRIT.
ASK for the HOLY SPIRIT, to guide you and show you TRUTH!
HONOR GOD and MAKE DISCIPLES!
Now that God’s Truth of WHO He is and WHAT He has done in my life is already
MARKED IN MY FOREHEAD— I am ready to make disciples!
In fact, like the HULK— I am now very ANGRY!!! Its like exploding from the inside out of me!
Jesus’ last command to us before He ascended to heaven-“make disciples of all nations!”
I AM READY.
And like I’ve said(tweeted) a few days ago… We’re not history in the making anymore.
WE ARE HISTORY MAKERS!!
LET US GO OUT and PREACH the GOSPEL!
LET US GO OUT and CHANGE THE NATION!
LET US GO OUT— UNITED WARRIORS!!!
