Me Da Lako Mai Vua Na KALOU E Na Yalo Malumalumu Ka Bibivoro.

et us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness,so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.Hebrew 4:16 (NRSV). The Mosaic Law is," Eye for an Eye Tooth for a Tooth",But Jesus Christ Law is,"Love your neighbor as yourself and No violence."We have to provide Peace in the world we live in. The scripture shows that if we are willing to humble ourselves before God,God will show us mercy.The Lord longs to be gracious to you;therefore he will rise up to show you…

Mo Vakataqara VUA Na Nomu Lomaocaoca Kecega.

Do not be anxious about anything,but in every situation,by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,present your requests to God.And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding,will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phillippians 4:6,7. Just like the bird,I sometimes find myself struggling intently with an issue or problem.Worry creeps in as I try to find my way back out.Before long,I am tired and exhausted. In these instances,I can remember the words Paul wrote to the…

13 Critics You Need to Hear

Evei Ko Tu Kina?

He that walketh with wise men shall be wise:but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20.The association with wise men will give you peace but fools will always give you trouble.Wisdom,as well as folly,can be transferred by association.It wiil come to your words are building blocks of which you construct your life and future.Situations,circumstances and conditions are all subject to change,but with the support of your words you can establish them in your life…

A History of Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day, in one form or another, has been around a long time. In ancient Greece, a celebration honoring mothers occurred every Spring.
In the Middle Ages, a custom called Mothering Sunday began when children, who often left home early to learn a trade or become apprentices, would be released from work every year on the forth Sunday of Lent to attend church with their families. As they returned home, they often took cakes or little gifts to their mothers. This…

The Right Diet

4 Tips to Grow Up Spiritually

No one is born a full grown human. They are born babies and then grow up. Similarly no one is born a full grown Christian. You are born a spiritual babe and grow into a mature believer.

To grow spiritually, you have to have the right diet.

What kind of diet is that?

Well, you have to feed on the entire Word of God but in particular, the New Testament. You see, we live under the New Covenant, not the Old Covenant. Some of the things in…

Me Da Muria Tikoga Na Noda I Vakatawa.

As Jesus went ashore,he saw a great crowd;and he had compassing for them,because they were like sheep without a shepherd. Mark 6:34. Since Christ is my shepherd,I will follow him closely.The Bible often compares us to sheep.Like sheep,we may go astray by following someone who is not our shepherd. Like sheep,we are easily frightened when venturing into unfamiliar territory.Like sheep we need a shepherd to guide us,to protect us,to lead us to clean water and green pastures.Christ is our…

Draki Vinaka Se Draki Ca E Sa Rauti Au Ga Ko JISU!

Paul wrote,"I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances." Phillippians 4:11  This Holy day marks a time when I try to think about moderation.Living in moderation is a daily challenge for me.From grocery shopping,to eating,to going to new stores,it is difficult to eat and purchase only what is necessary without splurging on a little more here and there. My thoughts goes to apostle Paul,who learned to be content in all circumstances. Having an excess of goods or of food clutters my…

As Culture Becomes More Corrupt, How Should Christians Live?

As Culture Becomes More Corrupt, How Should Christians Live?

by Scott Wilson

It’s no secret we live in a culture that is becoming increasingly more corrupt.

Sin is rampant and excused. God’s truth is being distorted.

And as we watch this unfold in front of us, it would be easy to get stuck thinking that this means we should disengage from culture and protect ourselves and our families.

But this is not what God has called us to do. In fact, I think he’s called many…

Era Sa Evei Na Turaga?

And when the Sabbath was past,Mary Magdalene,Mary the mother of James and Salome,had bought sweet spices that they might come and anoint him. Mark 16:1. Mark teaches us a big lesson about resposibiities.Where are the men? About 3 in the morning,( Maca..maca mai!).Genesis chap.3,God asked Adam,"Where are you?" Adam replied,"The woman you gave  me,she gave the tree,and I did eat it." Always passing the buck,but they both partake in it.Look around you and consider what must be done.The women…

The Indescribable Christ

by Dr. S.M. Lockridge

He’s the centerpiece of civilization. He stands alone in Himself. He’s unparalleled. He’s unprecedented. He’s supreme. He’s preeminent. He’s the loftiest idea in…

Na KALOU E Vinakata Na Talairawarawa Mai Na Ka 'O Kila!

The Lord said to me,"Do not say,I am only a boy for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and you shall speak whatever I command you." Jeremiah 1:7. Most of the time we give a lot of excuses but God is not as much concerned with our ability as with our availability. God is pleased when we are willing to use what we have to serve regardless of how unskilled we think we are. God knows our limitations and desires only that we are prepared and willing to go where God leads and to do God's…

Na KALOU E Rawa Ni Veisautaka Na Nomu I Tuvatuva Mo Vinaka Kina.

The Master said to the slave,"Go out into the roads and lanes,and compel people to come in so that my house may be filled." Luke 14:23. This experience reminded me of the parable of the great dinner in Luke 14. After the host sent the invitations and received the news that the guests were not coming,he extended the invitation to include people from the roads and lanes.Our dinner became a true feast where those who came truly wanted to be there.And they were fed by the Bread of Life,Jesus…
