But I'm glad it's Sunday.. :)
This morning I went to the Sunday School,,
meeting my dearest children ^^,,
continue with the election for new Sunday School's chairman which had no result at all -,-",,
then the Sunday School teacher coaching at GKI Gunung Sahari,,
and finally the evening service at my church...
I got home approximately at 7 PM..
Feels a little tired~~ (Not "very" coz I was sleeping during my way to the coaching.. :P)
Now I wanna share this evening preach I heard..
The preacher said today we commemorate the day when Jesus Christ were baptized..
As usual,, the Bible's readings are taken from 4 source..
From the Old Testament,, Psalms,, New Testament,, and from the Gospel (Mathew/Mark/Luke/John)..
I really like the reading text from Old Testament today..
It was taken from Isaiah 43: 1-7..
1 But now, this is what the LORD says -- He who created you, O Jacob, He who formed you, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are Mine.Mark the second verse~~ Cool!!
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
3 For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.
4 Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give men in exchange for you, and people in exchange for your life.
5 Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west.
6 I will say to the north, 'Give them up!' and to the south, 'Do not hold them back.' Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth-
7 everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made."
Because He owns us,, so..
- He always and will always by our side (no matter what's happening),,
- we are so precious in His eyes,,
- we always have HOPE in Him..
