(Eph 4:17)  This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

(Eph 4:18)  Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

(Eph 4:19)  Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

(Eph 4:20)  But ye have not so learned Christ;

(Eph 4:21)  If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:

(Eph 4:22)  That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

(Eph 4:23)  And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;

(Eph 4:24)  And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

(Eph 4:25)  Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

(Eph 4:26)  Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

(Eph 4:27)  Neither give place to the devil.

(Eph 4:28)  Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

(Eph 4:29)  Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

(Eph 4:30)  And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

(Eph 4:31)  Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

(Eph 4:32)  And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Are we there yet?

A TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS FRUIT; A MAN BY HIS DEEDS !

(Luk 6:44)  For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.

(Mat 12:33)  Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.


A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love. – Saint Basil

ARE WE THERE YET??

(Psa 1:1)  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

(Psa 1:2)  But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

(Psa 1:3)  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

(Psa 1:4)  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

(Psa 1:5)  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

(Psa 1:6)  For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

JEREMIAH 17:8

"He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."

WE WILL BE THERE SOON…

As with driving and reaching our destination safely, we focus on the road and are on the constant look-out for pot-holes, bumps, slippery patches to avoid accidents, in the same way, we should also focus on our spiritual road and on the constant look-out for pot-holes, bumps and slippery situation to avoid falling into temptations and sins.

How? You may ask..Psalm 1 tells us all too clearly..Let’s live our lives according to it.

Amen?

 

 

 

 

Amen.

Sound of Music..watch it ..Amazing..I've got goosebumps...

A story to live by
There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'
有一位瞎女很討厭自己因為眼睛瞎了。她也討厭每個人,唯一不討厭的是她的男朋友,因為他都常守在她身旁。於是她對她的男朋友說:「如果能讓我看到這個世界,我愿意嫁給你!」

One day,
someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages
came off, she was able to see everything, including her
boyfriend.

有一天,有人捐了一對眼精給她。當紗布解開時,她能夠看到一切,包括她的男朋友。
He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The
girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The
sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected
that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life
led her to refuse to marry him.

男朋友問她:「現在你可以看到這世界,你愿意嫁給我嗎?」那女孩看了男朋友是個瞎子,他那對蓋上眼皮的眼睛嚇到了她,這是她無法想像。她想:要我嫁給他而一生對着他這個樣子,我無法接受。

Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her
saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before
they were yours, they were mine.'


於是,她的男朋友很傷心的離開她,幾天後寫了字條給她:「親愛的,請你好好照顧你的眼睛,因為它不是屬於你的之前,它是屬於我的。」

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes.
Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who
was always by their side in the most painful situations.

這也是人的腦會如何做當情況有所變動。只有少許人會記得他或她之前的生活及誰會在身旁當他或她處在困境的時候

Life Is a Gift

生命是一份禮物

Today
before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.

今天,當你要講一句不善之言--請想想那些無法講話的人

Before
you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone
who has nothing to eat.

當你要埋怨食物的味道時--請想想那些沒有食物吃的人

Before
you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone
who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

當你要埋怨你的先生或太太時--請想想那些在向上天哭訴要一個伴侶的人

Today
before you complain about life - Think of someone who died
too early on this earth.

今天,當你要埋怨生活時--請想想那些太早離開人世間的人

Before
you complain about your children - Think of someone who
desires children but they're barren...

當你要埋怨小孩時--請想想那些渴望小孩而無能生育的人

Before
you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or
sweep - Think of the people who are living in the streets.

當你要爭論沒有人清理屋子時--請想想那些住在街邊的人

Before
whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who
walks the same distance with their feet.

當你在哀訴駕駛的路程--請想想那些同樣的路程以代步的人

And when
you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the
unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your
job.

當你很疲備而埋怨工作時--請想想那些無工作,殘疾的,及那些多麼希望擁有你這份工作的人

But
before you think of pointing the finger or condemning
another - Remember that not one of us is without sin.

當你想要指著人或互相譴責時--請記得沒有一個人是無罪

And when
depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on
your face and think: you're alive and still
around.

當壓抑的念頭讓你無法振作時--請你笑一笑想想:你還活著存在世間!


HAVE A BLESSED DAY PEOPLE. THINK OF OTHERS.

Mind your language

11the younger generation just love to mimic..music, dance moves, and most obvious slangs.

But my dearly beloved, may i caution you to at least look up the word first before using it. IF the word is vulgar.....It not only taint your image but also give the hearers a very bad impression of a Christian. A BAD TESTIMONY!

Take for example this word that is so often on the mouth of youngsters, using it to mean "nonsense' and another to imply "very"

The words "Cr*p" & "d*rn"

and the dictionary gives you:

crap
1   /kræp/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [krap] Show IPA noun, verb, crapped, crap⋅ping.

so next time you wanna show off your vocabulary, at least check out the meaning first, lest you put the name CHRISTian to shame!!!

BLESSED EASTER EVERYONE!!!

11EASTER ..its all about Jesus



It’s all about Jesus
It’s all about the way he changed our lives
It’s all about Jesus

It’s all about Jesus
Victorious he rose up from the grave

Chorus
We lift our hearts to him
He is the reason that we sing
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

It’s all about Jesus
Wearing every sin at Calvary

It’s all about Jesus
It’s all about the gift of love he gave
It’s all about Jesus
Precious lamb of God us was slain

Repeat Chorus







EVERYBODY, SOMEBODY, ANYBODY & NOBODY


11
Since these 4 characters are frequent visitors to this youth blog, I would like to share a story abt them.


This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.

Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done

Where do you stand??


11 As Jesus' ministry began to unfold, His popularity continued to grow.
After having fed the five thousand with five barley loaves and two fish, the
multitude was ready to take Him by force and make Him king. (John 6:15)
Matthew recorded that Jesus sent the disciples away in the boat while He
remained and dismissed the crowd. (Matthew 14:22) Perhaps, they could have
easily gotten caught up in the excitement of the crowd. Though Jesus would
be King, it would not be in this way. Then as the crowds continued to
follow, Jesus tried to redirect their focus from physical things to the
spiritual. (John 6:22-65) Some of this teaching was difficult for many to
accept and therefore many turned away no longer walking with Him. (John
6:66)

For Jesus' closest disciples (the Twelve) to have witnessed such a
following and then see so many walk away, had potential to impact their own
view of what was to come. What were they to make of it all? Witnessing
rejection can really take away the excitement when so much momentum seemed
to have already been building.

We read. . .
"(66) After this many of his disciples turned back and no longer
walked with him. (67) So Jesus said to the Twelve, 'DO YOU WANT TO GO AWAY
AS WELL?'" (John 6:66-67 ESV)

In spite of others, where did they stand? Would they be discouraged
enough to wonder whether or not it was worth hanging in there with Jesus?
Where was the success in such a picture? Now, Jesus knew who would believe
and who would not, as well as who of the Twelve would betray Him. (John
6:64) But did they themselves know where they stood?

For us to consider where we stand is important as well. To verbalize it
helps strengthen the resolve in our own minds and solidify our stand. Though
all others leave, would we remain?

Peter's response would have not only helped establish deeper roots to
his resolve, but also encourage the others.
"(68) Simon Peter answered him, 'LORD, TO WHOM SHALL WE GO? You have
the words of eternal life, (69) and WE HAVE BELIEVED, and HAVE COME TO KNOW,
that YOU ARE THE HOLY ONE OF GOD.'" (John 6:68-69 ESV)

For Peter there was NO OTHER OPTION! That is a great resolve for us to
share as well. Let us not even leave the door open a crack for ANY OTHER
OPTION. Having come to know that Jesus is "the Holy One of God" and
remembering it is only He Who has "the words of eternal life" should keep us
from turning away. May our following never end.

Have a great day CONTINUING TO STAND WITH JESUS!

Humility

11"Humility is not denying the power that you have but admitting that the power comes through you, not from you."


Remember... what is in the middle of "PRIDE" and what is in the middle of 'SIN"?  that's right and when one get too focused on the I, then it is self-centered, so full of self.  in Chinese it is 自大, and since one is so full of self, so self-centered, everything revolves around one.  Thus it is 自大 with a dot "."  In the eyes of God, it is 臭.

Are you humble?

(Psa 51:17)  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Subject: Better don't eat fish for now



Hundreds of fish were dying in Baram River



Then Borneo Resources Institute Malaysia (Brimas) is shocked with another wave of mysterious death of fish in Sarawak. Over the last few days, hundreds of fish were found dying in Baram River, particularly around the Kuala Baram area.

Brimas officers have conducted field visits and investigations in the area and were surprised to see several species of freshwater fish dying in the river. The fish species that were found dying are locally known as Ikan Baung, Ikan Burih, Ikan Tapah, Ikan Padi to mention a few.

Also found dying were various types of prawns. Through our observation, most of the fish seemed weak, tired and having difficulty in breathing. As a result, the fish surfaced for air but after sometime suffocated to death. Also, the fish appeared blind.



Our officers have conducted site examinations on some of the dead fishes, particularly checking their gills. Brimas found that the gills of the fishes were not clogged with mud or blocked by silt. The stomach or intestines of the dead fish did not contain mud but seemed watery.



Regarding the condition of the Baram River, Brimas officers noticed that the water was murky. According to some local villagers at the Kuala Baram area, they have not seen any difference in the water as over the past years, the river has always being brownish, muddy and polluted with silt due to logging, oil palm plantations and industrial development activities.



Brimas has collected some water samples from Baram River for further investigation and necessary action.

Brimas is concerned with the safety of villages and members of longhouse communities along the Baram River. These people are exposed to danger and environmental disaster as they entirely depend on Baram River for their daily livelihood.

Brimas has seen these people scooping up the floating fish as well as collecting the dying fishes in Kuala Baram. It is alarming to note that these fish were sold at the local markets around Miri here. Innocent members of public could have bought and consumed these fishes and prawns unaware of the possible health risks.

Brimas is appalled with this reoccurrence of the large-scale dying of fish in Sarawak rivers. It seems that major rivers throughout the state are affected by this mysterious phenomenon. This seems like a wave of destructive incidents affecting all of our rivers.



These series of mysterious death of fishes had occurred twice in the Bakun dam project area in Belaga, then in Balleh and last week it was at the Mukah River.

With this new incident at Kuala Baram, based on our site investigations and observations, Brimas has identified the possible source and culprits that cause these incidents. However, Brimas would rather not pinpoint the culprits now but allow the relevant authorities to carry their investigations independently.

Brimas urges the Natural Resources and Environment Board (NREB) to conduct thorough investigations to find out the cause of the death of these fishes. Their reports must be made public as the nature of this mysterious phenomenon is of public interest and concern.

Brimas also supports the NREB in taking whatever action in enforcing the law against the culprits or responsible parties so that these incidents will not recur in the future.

11With the whole world celebrating Valentine's day .. roses, chocolates, dinners with the beloved, the i-youth at GMC Miri celebrated valentine with their FIRST LOVE..

Earlier in the morning, these two were seen to be up to something...



My... not a bad job..



we had pot bless( candle-lit style) ... a time of sharing our love and fellowship together.. (i would not give that up for the world).. XD


Then it our love songs to our First Love.. Oh..my fave..YOU ARE MY WORLD.. brought tears of joy and grateful ..


The best part of the whole evening (IMHO) were the sharing/testimonies from the Teng Bros. They shared how they came to know the Lord, and the sense of belonging to the i-Youth, they testified the goodness of the Lord. GOD IS GOOD!!!! was proclaimed many many times..Amen!!! GOD IS GOOD

The Lord is indeed good to all of us. These brothers are some of the living testimonies witnessed in the i-Youth which boldly proclaimed the love of God.

How wonderful it is to see the youth mature in their walk with the Lord.

Personally, this valentine was my BEST!!!

ALL GLORY AND HONOUR TO OUR RISEN LORD AND SAVIOUR. AMEN!
