This will be another long day for pastors like me, and I pray that God's Spirit would be upon every preacher preaching His word today. I pray for empowerment for all full time and lay ministers who will be doing their roles in their churches all around the globe. And I pray all these in Jesus' name! :)

This past week, I was reminded of something inevitable that comes but a lot of people don't get to prepare for - death and what comes after that. This struck hard on me when one of the attenders in our youth ministry died last January 31 because of a condition called cardiomyopathy. What's shocking is that he died at the age of 16. He was a nice boy, loved his family and was a responsible older brother to his five siblings.
Then came the reminder that death is inevitable and it comes unexpectedly. The question is are we ready to die?
The Bible says that death came to all men through the first man's disobedience. Sin came when Adam disobeyed God and death through sin (Romans 5:12) . Romans 6:23 adds that our being born as sinners (not because we do wrong things but because of our sin nature) separates us from God and has a natural consequence - physical and spiritual death which is eternal separation from God.
The good news is that even though we're all destined for that eternal separation, God made a way for us to escape that. That way is not a religion but a relationship - in the Person of Jesus Christ.
Since we're all sinners, nothing we could do could ever pass as an acceptable sacrifice for sin. Romans 3:23 describes how we all fall short of God's holiness. So, God, knowing this, sent Jesus and He lived as a God-man, experienced what we all experienced (emotions & temptations) but didn't sin. He then became THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS. His death, the shedding of His blood on the Cross became the payment for our sin and His resurrection demonstrated His power over sin and death - so that when God promises eternal life, he is promising it with the guarantee that He's 'been there, done that'.
So how does this all relate to preparing for death? Only when we individually...
A - Admit we are sinners and that we can't work our way to God and...
B - Believe that Jesus is God's only provision for our sin problem and...
C - Commit our life to Jesus, by making a personal decision that from now on He will be the Boss and Manager (Lord) our lives...
...only then can we be really prepared for death. As John 3:16-18 declares, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. 18 Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son."
Further more , John 1:12 says that , "to all who received Him (Jesus), to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God. We begin our new relationship with God; He becomes our Father and us His children.
Anyone can make this decision by verbalizing to God the simple steps (A-B-C) above, even right now.
If you made that decision right now I'd be glad to know and even help you grow in the new relationship you have with God.

I never thought I’d realize the dream of monetizing this blog. I praise God for the opportunities being made available online. I believe it wasn’t an accident it happened. Deuteronomy 8:18 says, “But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth…” When I first started this my other blog I never thought it would make it but was surprised that it even got a Pagr rank of 1. For this blog, I’m still waiting for updates but it’s really been a blessing that there are opportunities even for this blog.
An online service that connected a blogger like me with advertisers is Smorty. The control panel they have for bloggers is very user friendly and the instructions given to bloggers on the assigned opportunity are very clear. I’m glad that I could get paid for blogging. Advertisers can avail of their services, too. Smorty assists advertisers and connects them with bloggers so they can advertise on blogs like this one.
So if you’re blogging and you’re not yet monetizing your blog, try Smorty and they will help you get paid to blog even if you don’t intentionally want to blog for money. I’m sure the extra income will be a blessing to you, too.

Those finding opportunities abroad are not to blame. They actually have every reason to go especially with the dirty politics, corruption and struggling economy of our nation. But it is important to select the proper training schools to go to especially when it comes to medically related professions like nurses, physicians, ultrasound tech and many others; and not just choose a school that suddenly sprung out of the blue claiming authority on training health professionals but really just riding with the wave and the demand for medical training schools and making money out of it.

Lately, because of the different opportunities being presented by the world wide web, I’ve been having thoughts about doing some research about what items are on high demand on the internet and am planning to make an online store that sells those products. I’m considering items like jewelry, i-pods and other technology items and books but I have not really made up my mind yet. I think I still need to do further research and identify specific items.
Another thing I need to research on is how to optimize the online store I’m going to create. I know that there are many SEO tools available in the internet so I think I would not have a problem with this one.
One more thing I need to research about is the shopping cart software I’m going to use. But, I don’t think that will be a problem because I think I’ve found what I will need. Ashop Commerce is what I may use. Their software is award winning and is web based, so I won’t need to install anything. It is very affordable and I will be able to accept credit card payments online. This part of my research is already covered. Nice, huh?
