Acknowledging God’s Faithfulness in Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time of celebration and reflection on the goodness of God. It is “a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father.”

Throughout the Bible, we can see a pattern of public expression of gratitude. We see the people of God offer sacrifices before, during, and after major event in their lives.

Paul, in the New Testament, would exhort the churches and the believers to “always give thanks to the Father”; to make thanksgiving a crucial part of their prayers. Doing this not only acknowledges God’s favor in the lives of His people but also helps the believer to adapt a perspective that sees the move of God in one’s life – no matter what the circumstances are.

For the 19th of November Sunday Service, the church had a special offering. This was done as a gesture similar to that of the Old Testament tradition where the people of God offer the best parts of their harvest as an offering to God.

The church was encouraged to bring a portion of food, fruits, of any item that can be offered as a token of gratitude to God’s loving-kindness and faithfulness. These tokens represent the consciousness that without God’s favor, all our labor is in vain.

This thanksgiving season, let us make it a point to make the most out of our this season. Let us not forget to acknowledge God’s providence and faithfulness. Our “Abba” keeps His promises.

At the same time, let us also acknowledge the people in our lives who deserve a pat on the back or a warm hug. Let us remember our parents, our brothers and sisters, our mentors, our friends and colleagues, the community we belong to, and all the people in our lives who challenged us to grow, who comforted us in times of sorrow, and those who have loved us through all the phases of our walk with God.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Loving Our City with Christ – JRM-Vallejo 17th Year Anniversary

We, Jesus Reigns Ministries Church in Vallejo, have celebrated our 17th Year Anniversary on September 17, 2017 with the theme “Loving Our City with Christ.  

This year, we are rallying the Church into going to all the corners of the city to spread the love of Christ –  in the words of St. Francis of Assisi, 

“Preach Jesus, and if necessary use words.”

We have felt the call of God to love our city in ways that are not only heard but also felt.

For the Anniversary Celebration Service, the Children’s Ministry prepared a dance number. Followed by the Youth Ministry’s adaptation of the award-winning human video presentation “Darkness Has a Name.”  

Bishop Vincent Javier delivered the sermon for the anniversary’s theme. It was a powerful challenge to go beyond ourselves and start looking for ways God has been encouraging us to love our city.

After the celebration, lunch was served with all kinds of Filipino Foods, including the poll winner, Halo-halo. 

September 17, 2017 is the date we all remember as both a challenge and a promise to follow God’s mandate for Jesus Reigns Ministries Church to love our city, the city God has placed us to be rooted and grounded in love.
