The Lord’s Touch – Ed Lapiz
T – The touch of God transforms. Transformation totally changes
Reformation, without transformation is useless. There can be a religious experience, without God’s touch. People who change and then go back to their ways are merely reformed, not transformed. When God transforms us, we become legally holy. We also become actually holy.
Those in the light are not content when they stumble, they always seek to stand up.
If we can’t really enjoy wrong-doing, we’ve been transformed. No one who meets the Lord remains the same.
O – The touch of the lord ordains. Every person the Lord touches, He gives a mission, a purpose. It’s something that when we look back, we can be sure that our life was meant for it. Once you’re called, you can’t just ignore it. There are main ministries and seasonal ones. The Lord does not ordain you every time you read the bible.
If you don’t answer God’s call, you are cheating everyone. Sadly, there are people in the church who don’t follow their calling. If you are called, it simply means that the church has a need. Eventually, others will do it.
When the Lord calls, He equips. Esther has gone through so much, even became the queen, only to ask the king to save her race. There are few moments that bring opportunities for heroes to rise. Those who overcome their fear, neglect comfort and security to
There’s no calling greater than the calling of the Almighty.
U – The Lord’s touch unifies.
C – The Lord’s touch conquers. It conquers our weaknesses and fears. God’s touch makes us conquerors of the unsaved. It also makes us conquerors of the evil one.
H – God’s touch heals. It heals pain. Akala ng iba balbon ka, pero puro ka para peklat dahil sa kakukurot ng tiya mong masungit.
There was this man named Boy Bilibid. He was head of a big gang and he receives 10% of the gang’s earnings. He’s a handsome guy. He killed someone but it couldn’t be proved. That person’s wife hated him so much and was willing to spend everything she has just to get justice.
Boy Bilibid could have said. There’s only one hearing left. His family spent all they have just to set him free. But, having met Christ, he decided to tell the truth. One day, Boy Bilibid saw the wife. She talked to her and admitted the wrongdoing.
In short, Boy Bilibid went into prison. Not all who do the right thing ends up with a Cinderella story. When we do good, there are times when it seems one step backward. His family put all the blame in him and chastised him. Don’t expect God to come down from heaven and reward you for every little thing you do.
Just before the year ends, he saw his friend running fast. The friend gave him a newspaper saying the president pardoned him.
