Millenials Revolution

Millenials 1980-2000, you are not the church of tomorrow. YOU ARE THE CHURCH OF TODAY. We owe you an apology when other generations, including mine, have labeled you – spoiled, entitled, uncommitted, and lazy. Please forgive us for this wrong that we have done to you.

In reality, you are looking for mentors/people who are AUTHENTIC – people that are open with their lives sharing not only their successes but their stupidity, mistakes, and failures. You are CAUSE ORIENTED – you desire to have a positive impact to the world even if it is a low paying job. You are PASSIONATE – addressing and correcting the problems that are inherited from past generation. You view the world with IDEALISM, a positive outlook, with hope of a better future. You have a BALANCED VIEW of ministry – you ask the right questions, and you can say that the issues of past generations were illogical and are no brainer problems. Example is the church history splitting over spiritual and physical ministry. Your view: there should be no split because Jesus did them both, we didn’t have to choose from them.

Just like King Josiah in the Bible, 2 Chronicles 34. He too is a millennial, when we look at his age during his service. God used him as a CATALYST for change and revival in their land. With God’s word in your hand, you can carry hope to this dying and lost world. God is the God of your generation. God is the God of Hope. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. God bless you.

The Greatest Commandment for Gamers

I love playing Clash Of Clans. It is a very dynamic strategy game. First, You have to put your mind into it. How? You have to educate yourself, watch YouTube and learn from the best. Adapting new warfare strategies and base layout is a constant endeavor. The moment you stop adapting is the time you become obsolete and ineffective. Timing, efficiency, and optimization of upgrades are also something to ponder on. You can’t just upgrade anything you want and achieve productivity and excellence. Your mind keeps on thinking what to do next, when will the upgrade end and what resources do I need to be collecting so my builders and laboratories won’t be idle. 

Second aspect is time and strength. You have to constantly go on farming for resources, also known as looting or “stealing” from the weaker villages. Some are so addicted to it that it disrupts your sleep. You wake up in the middle of the night because the upgrades will be done by then. Exercising will be at the bottom of your priority since playing keeps you busy and requires constant work and attention.

The third aspect is Heart. In pursuit of victory and excellence, to earning a lot of resources and helping your clanmates win clanwars – you give it your all. You devote yourself to it – Analyzing battle strategies, guiding and teaching them how to be more efficient in their farming and attacking. It evolves to a passion that consumes you.

This is the greatest commandment – to love with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. However, it was given not to gaming, nor business, nor work. It was directed to a person and that is God. I don’t know if you can relate with me but the PASSION, the LOVE  that we put on to our gaming, whatever game it is, should be the same PASSION AND LOVE that we must give God. Actually, it should be to God alone. We cannot serve both God and Gaming, either you will be devoted to one and despise the other. I mentioned this is in my other article that I have realized I have sinned Idolatry against Him because of gaming. COC has become my life pursuit, my priority, my passion, the virtual in place of the tangible, the digital in place of reality and even eternity. It is really difficult to admit it but may God’s Holy Spirit be the one to enlighten you, free you from the bondage of addiction, and from the sin of idolatry. God invites you to come to Him. He loves you and welcomes you with arms open wide. He wants you to humble yourself and confess your sins to Him and He will forgive you through the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ, who died on the cross to pay for our sin and to bring us redemption and reconciliation to God, our Father. He will give you purpose and an abundant life when you surrender your life to Him. Wake up to the people around you, love your family, restore broken relationships, help the people in your community. Use your skills and talents to bless others. Fulfill your God-given calling and purpose. Do not work for things that will not last but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven. Again, the greatest commandment – to LOVE the LORD, your God, with ALL YOUR HEART, SOUL, MIND, AND STRENGTH.  God bless you.
