FIRST LOVE

I READ: Revelation 2:1-7 The second coming of the Lord is getting closer. We are witnessing the signs of the end times as written in Matthew 24. As a church of God, we need to be watchful because He can come at any time. First and foremost, we have to maintain our first love to…

HONOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD

I READ: 1 Chronicles 16 : 1-6, 17:11-15 During the time of Eli, the high priest, the Ark of the Covenant was in the possession of the Philistines due to careless treatment. The Ark of the Covenant represented the Lord’s presence. The Philistines suffered misfortune as plague after plague struck the city. After keeping the…

HORMATI HADIRAT TUHAN

RENUNGAN : 1 Tawarikh 16 : 1-6, 17 : 11-15 Pada jaman Imam Eli memerintah menjadi hakim di Israel, tabut Allah sempat dicuri oleh bangsa Filistin. Karena pada jamannya tabut Allah tidak dipelihara dengan baik. Tabut Allah menggambarkan hadirat Tuhan. Namun setelah 7 bulan tabut Allah di tempat bangsa Filistin, mereka terus mengalami malapetaka demi…

TUHAN YANG UTAMA

RENUNGAN : Daniel 3:1 – 30 Sadrakh, Mesakh, Abednego masuk dapur api karena tidak mau menyembah patung raja Nebukadnezar namun hanya mau menyembah Tuhan semesta alam. Luar biasa iman dan cinta mereka kepada Tuhan. Saat inipun banyak anak-anak Tuhan yang mengalami aniaya dan problem karena apa yang mereka lakukan untuk Tuhan. Dipecat karena tidak bekerja…

GOD IS PRIORITY

I READ: Daniel 3:1–30 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were cast into the fiery furnace because they refused to worship the gold image of King Nebuchadnezzar. They insisted on only praising and worshipping the Lord of heaven and earth. Their faith and love for God were really amazing. Nowadays, we also see many children of God…

HOLD ON TO HIS PROMISE

I READ: James 1:1-8 When problems and hardships come into your life, as a believer, you need to be strong in the Lord and be sure in His promise that “He will never leave us”, Hebrews 13:5. Those who rely on Him faithfully will be given the strength and grace that will be sufficient for…

PEGANG JANJINYA

RENUNGAN : Yakobus 1:1-8 Adakalanya kesesakan dan kesusahan akan datang kepada kita dalam hidup ini. Ketika saat itu tiba, sebagai orang percaya kita harus kuat di dalam Tuhan dan yakin bahwa janji-Nya “Ia tidak akan meninggalkan kita” akan menyertai kita, Ibrani 13:5b. Orang yang mengandalkan Tuhan dengan setia diberikan kekuatan dan kasih karunia yang cukup…

LEBIH DARI PEMENANG

RENUNGAN : 1 Korintus 15 : 54a – 58 Kemenangan kita ada di dalam Tuhan Yesus Kristus. Pada waktu kita fokus kepada kemenangan yang Tuhan Yesus telah raih atas segala musuh-musuhNya dan atas maut, kita juga akan mengalami kemenangan. Mari kita lihat kehidupan Daud. Daud adalah seorang yang penuh dengan pengalaman indah bersama Tuhan karena…

MORE THAN CONQUERORS

I READ: 1 Corinthians 15:54a–58 Our victory is in our Lord Jesus Christ. We truly experience our victory when we focus on the victory that Jesus has won over our enemies and death. Let the life of David be an example. David experienced a relationship with God like no other because God gave him victory…

DEFEATING THE DEVIL

I READ: Matthew 4:1–11 Today we will learn how we can defeat the devil and his temptation and experience our victory. We will learn directly from the life of Jesus. He is our only perfect example. Every time the devil tempted Jesus He rebuked him by declaring the word of God, “It is written…” The…
