Breaking News: Talk 1 Gospel by Bo Sanchez


[Bo Sanchez]
I am so excited for you. You will receive
a revelation. You will receive a fresh
gust of wind from the spirit for your
life, here in our show Kerygma TV. Hi, my
name is Bo Sanchez. And welcome to
Kerygma TV. We are going to tackle the
four Gospels. And try to understand in a
deeper way, who Jesus is. And what’s this
salvation, and our story. What’s that
all about? And I know you will be super
blessed. [Audee Villaraza] Today, we get to start something
beautiful. Something amazing. Today, we’re
starting a fresh brand new series called
“Breaking News”. Everybody say, “Breaking
News”. For the next five Sundays, we are
going to unpack four Gospels. How many?
Four Gospels namely, “Mark”, “Matthew”, “Luke”,
and “John”, alright? But why is it called
“Breaking News”? Ask me ‘why’? Because these
four disciples were the best reporters
during their time. You know, they
delivered to the world. The fresh and
brand-new news about Jesus Christ. And
as Brother Bo mention in his bulletin
message, if you read it. We want you to
expect two things. How many? Two things in
this series, alright? We want you to
expect first to use your brains more.
Okay? We’re going to challenge you to think
more. To act more. To do more. To process
more. In fact, if some of you even feel
like it, you know. You can jot down some
notes. When you do that, I guarantee you —
when you get involved, you’re going to come
out of the series; a better and smarter
Christian, alright? Second thing to
expect; expect to ask more questions.
Don’t be afraid if all of a sudden you
find yourself asking more questions than
having answers. Because, hey?
Questioning can be a good thing. Doubting can
be a good thing, why? Because it leads you
to the truth. So two things to expect. But
let me give you one more. Expect to be
changed. Because as you discover the
Gospels, you’re going to fall in love with
Jesus all over again. When that happens,
you will never be the same again.
And that’s the truth. So are you ready to
be changed? Louder! Are you ready to be
changed?
Alright! That’s more like it. Let’s say
our favorite prayer here at The Feast.
In the name of the Father, and of the
Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Stretch
out your hands and say, “Today, I receive
all of God’s love for me. Today, I open
myself to the unbounded,
limitless, overflowing abundance of God’s
universe. Today, I open myself to God’s
blessings, healing, and miracles. Today, I
open myself to God’s Word. So that, I
become more like Jesus every day. Today, I
proclaim that I am God’s beloved. I am God’s
servant. [Shout it out!] I’m God’s powerful champion.
And because I am blessed, I am blessing the world.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Let’s all give honor to God’s Word.
Thy Word is a
lamp unto my feet.
And a light
unto my path.
Holy Spirit, speak to us in a fresh
new way. Let me give you our big message
for today. Our message for today is very
simple, but it’s also very bold. I’m going to
need you to shake. Like literally shake
physically the person on your left, until
their brains start moving. Can you turn
to that neighbor and tell them, “You’re
made for bigger things”. That’s the truth.
You’re made for bigger things. But listen
up, alright? You know, before we start
talking about the four Gospels… I really
believe that the first thing we should
be doing is asking the question, “What is
a gospel?” Do you want to know
what a gospel is? Ask me ‘what’? Teaching
session, alright? In Greek, the word ‘gospel’
simply means euangelion. Everybody
say, “euangelion”.
It literally means good news, or good
tidings, alright? It comes from the root
word ‘angelos’. Say ‘angelos’, which means
messenger. Say ‘messenger’. When you put
those two concepts together, it could
simply mean ‘messenger of good news’, yes?
You follow? Now, among the four Gospels,
again, we’re going to be discussing for Mark,
Matthew, Luke, and John. The first one to
have ever written the gospel is Mark. He
was the first one to jot down the book,
alright? And Mark starts his book in
1:1, obviously. By saying,
“The beginning of the gospel of Jesus
Christ, son of God.” So you have Mark
acknowledging that the gospel is all
about who? Jesus Christ. That’s right. Now,
if you fast-forward all the way to
chapter 16, this is how he ends — his
book. Chapter 16, somewhere around verse
15. Mark starts to talk about the Great
Commission. The Great Commission is an
event were before Jesus ascends into
heaven. And he commands his 11
disciples to do what? He said… Here’s what
he says. He says, “To go into all the world
and preach the gospel to every creature.”
“To go out into the world and preach the
gospel to every creature.” It presents a
very interesting proposition, because if
you remember through our partnership
with Peter; who started a Catholic Church.
He passes on the same thing to you and
me. So it’s not just the priests, or the
pastors, or the preachers like us, who are
supposed to preach. It’s also you! My dear
friends, the gospel is all about God’s
love. That’s simply what it is. How do you
preach about God’s love? Ask me ‘how’? The
best way to preach about God’s love is
to be God’s love. Preaching… Let me say
this. Preaching is all about just caring.
It’s all about giving, and sharing the
good news. I want to challenge some of
you this week. Be the good news that
people desperately need to hear. Be the
miracle that people are praying for. Be
the love of Christ to some person. It
doesn’t even have to be a grand gesture.
Maybe it’s something so simple. So small.
Maybe invite people to The Feast. Maybe
invite them to a Feast Video. Maybe have
coffee with them, when they’re having a
tough time. Maybe pray for them. Maybe
walk with them. It’s just a simple thing.
The bottom line is… To preach the gospel,
you got to become the gospel. You got to
share the love of Jesus. And tell them,
“Hey, there’s a God who loves you so much!”
That’s all it is.
[Bo Sanchez] When I watched Superman
as a kid… Superman was my favorite
favorite superhero.
I watched Superman by the actor George
Reeves. And how many of you watched him
when you were a kid? Raise your hand. Okay,
very few. I just want to clarify
this. That this guy was Superman in the
1950s. And I didn’t watch when it was new.
I watched when it was re-runs.
Just to clarify. Okay, I remember watching
the episodes. And it was so funny. Really!
Because he was flying in every
episode. But it was so fake. It was like
he was flying, but you know the actor
was lying down on a table. And there was
an electric fan. Like you know,
pushing the cape, you know to flutter. But
then, you know at that time, that
was the best that they could. And
people’s minds were blown away already
by that. Anyway, in the 19… I don’t know if
it was 1990s or 2000, Christopher Reeve
took on the red and blue costume for
movies. How many of you watch that one?
Okay, wonderful. Nobody wants to raise
their hands anymore. Divulging
your age here. And then, the third version
of Superman was on the small
box and TV, Lois and Clark. Dean Cain.
Raise your hand if you watched some of
those episodes. But this time,
this was more focused on the
love story. It’s like… Of course, he was
still a Superman, you know. You can’t
change that. But it was focused on the
love triangle between Superman, Lois Lane,
and Clark Kent. Really. Like there
were two persons. But no, there’s three.
But they’re actually two. Anyway…
And then, the fourth one was Smallville.
How many of you know Tom Welling,
the actor. Some of you watch that? Okay.
And then finally, Henry Cavill.
Raise your hand. The most present,
current Superman. Now, I want you to
understand. Why am I talking about
Superman, and all these five versions of
Superman. I’ll tell you. As me ‘why’? Big
‘why’? Because I’m going to use it as a crude
analogy. Everybody say ‘crude’. A crude
analogy of the four Gospels. You know,
someone asked me a question. Someone very
knew. Somebody who’s… You know, just
had his conversion experiences is
getting into Jesus, and following him. He
asked me this question, “Brother Bo, why
are there four Gospels? Why did they just
summarize it into one?”
“Why four?” And I noticed that there’s
some differences here and there. And my
crude analogy is this. We only have one
story of Superman. Only one. Planet
Krypton. Before it exploded, Jor-El sense,
you know. I know this. I know the script.
Okay?
Sends his little baby in a spaceship, you
know. The planet Earth. I mean, there’s
only one Superman story. But there are
five versions. At least in my lifetime.
And why? Well, there is one different
director. There’s a different script writer.
There’s a different audience. Different
time zone.
Different era. Different things, themes,
etc. But in the same way, there
are four Gospels. Because there are four
Gospel writers focusing on different
audiences, and they’ve got different
issues to address. Because the big
difference is that the four Gospels have
one Holy Spirit that inspired each and
every one of them. One Holy Spirit to
inspire Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. And
it is the same Holy Spirit that is in
you, when you read the gospel. Before you
read a Bible, I pray that you
just go to the Holy Spirit. Say, “Holy
Spirit, speak to me. You’re the one who
wrote these words. You inspire these
words. Inspire me now.” So that’s why I say
‘crude’. When you look at the four Gospels,
you see differences. I’ll give you some
examples. Matthew, Mark, and Luke… Jesus
cleansed the temple. You know, that he
turned upside down the tables, and drove
out the cellar. You know that scene?
That that was at the end of the
public ministry of Jesus; in Matthew, Mark,
and Luke. But in John, it was at the
beginning of the public ministry. And
then, there are stories in the Gospels
where you find it in all four Gospels.
The multiplication of the loaves is one
example. But there are stories that
are only found in one gospel, but not in
the other three. How come? Well, let me
tell you the answer. The big answer…
I’ll give you three small
answers. Here’s the big answer. The Gospel
writers… Everybody say ‘I’m listening’. The
Gospel writers were not journalists. They
were theologians. The gospel is not a
biography of Jesus, it is a theology
of Jesus. You understand that? So
when I say that, they had a message. And
so, they would sequence the events.
And they would write it in that
particular way, and they would include
this teaching because of different
things. Let me give you my three small
answers. First, who is writing makes a
difference. Luke, for example was a doctor.
And he researched it very well.
And he would write in very sophisticated
Greek. Matthew was a tax collector. And if
you notice in the Gospel of Matthew, he
would speak about money more than the
other three Gospels. Mark was a young man.
And he wrote with very simple Greek. Oh,
John. John, most probably scholars say,
wrote something. And then, his disciples
gathered his teachings, and put them
together. Who is writing makes a
difference, you understand? My dear friend,
you have a gospel to preach. Your life,
your stuff. You have a story to tell the
world. And God will use you. Your
uniqueness, your personality, your
idiosyncrasies, your history. Do not
compare yourself with other people and
say, “Why they’re better than me?” You
know, you have a story; a unique gift that
only you can give the world. And you
cannot compare yourself with others. “Why do they
have gifts?” I remember when I was a
teenager… When I was in my 20s. I would be
so frustrated that I cannot speak and
preach in Tagalog, you know. I wanted to
reach out to street kids. I wanted to reach
out to people who are more comfortable in
Tagalog, I could not. And I was so so
frustrated. Until God spoke to my heart
and God said, “Because that’s not my call
for you. I called you to do something
else.” My message to you is this: Do not
compare yourself with anyone else. You
are magnificent as you are.
And you’ve got to own it. You’ve got to own
your history. You’ve got to own the way
your background. You’ve got to own how
God pieced you together. Because he has a
mission for your life. Here’s number two.
When they were writing makes a
difference. Mark, the earliest gospel was
written 50 A.D.to 55 A.D. to about 70. Mark,
Matthew, and Luke was written 70 to 85
A.D. And then, John was written 90 to 110
A.D. So think about it. There are
differences in when they were writing.
Mark was the one who wrote first. Matthew
and Luke followed. They copied from Mark.
And they copied from another source — that
because they have both stories; Matthew
and Luke have stories that are not found
in Mark, but are found in another
probably common source. And so, they
were copied from each other. John came
later on. Did not feel the need to
copy from those guys. Ask me ‘why’? Because
those three Gospels you call them
‘Synoptic Gospels’. Syn for same. Optic, eye.
“Synoptic” means they’re the same
perspective. And did Audee
warn you? That is going to be more cerebral
this next few talks? He did? He warned you?
that you cannot anymore donate your
brain as slightly use. No more. Okay?
We’re going to go cerebral here. John,
did not feel the need to copy from the
synoptic Gospels. Ask me ‘why’? Because
during that time, it was already
circulated well. The Christian
communities already had those copies;
Matthew, Mark, Luke. They were reading it
already. John wrote at the later part, 90
A.D. And he said, you know, “I’m going to give
you something else. I’m going to dig deep
into my memory, and I’m going to share you
stories and sayings.”
It’s powerful. And also, because he was
facing something else. Issues that were
not present during the time of
Matthew, Mark, and Luke. In Matthew, Mark,
and Luke, what happened was… That they
were facing persecution. And so, those
three Gospels were encouragement,
and comfort to Christians, who are
being persecuted. John was also
experiencing persecution. But there was
another current issue. There were
heretics. There were people who for
example… Did not believe that Jesus was
both God and man. They thought, “Oh,
he’s just God. Not man.” So, John was saying
“No, no, no.” And he wrote the gospel to
address that. “No, Jesus is both God and
man.” When they were writing is very
important. In the same way, have you ever
wondered why you’re born in this world
right now, today?
Why weren’t you born 100 years ago?
During the time of Jose Rizal? Why
weren’t you born when Lapu-lapu killed
Magellan 500 years ago? Why now? You know
why? God has a purpose for your life today.
God wants you to do something today.
Elbow somebody and tell that person, “You
have a mission today. That’s why you were
born today.” Third answer,
who they were writing to makes a
difference.
Mark was writing to Gentiles. When I say
Gentiles, that means non-Jews. You got
that? Okay. Mark was writing to Gentiles.
Luke was writing also to Gentiles, but
more the educated class. John was writing
to Gentiles and Jews, but mostly Gentiles.
Mathew was writing to Jews. So it was
very different. He was writing to new
new converts. Jews who decided to follow
Jesus, but they were asking the question,
“How can I marry my old faith with my new
faith?” And Matthew had to answer that, and
and what he did was he quoted lots of
verses from the Old Testament. If you
notice Matthew quotes so much of the Old
Testament, because his audience were
Jews. And they understood the Old
Testament. Non-Jews did not care about
the Old Testament. So you notice that
Mark, and Luke, and John, they didn’t do
that so much. They did, but not as much as
Matthew. You understand that? Your
audience makes a difference. I’m going to
ask you this question, “Who’s your
audience?” Hold someone’s hand. Tell that
person… Ask that person, “Who is your
audience?” God is sending you to serve
a core audience. And you’ve got to know
what your audience is. You’ve got to know
where God is sending you to. It is so
crucial to know that — who are the people
that he wants you to serve? You’ve got to
know that, and understand that… You know,
the other thing I want to talk about is
how did the Gospels become part of
the Bible? Think with me. Jesus died 33 A.D.
The first gospel; Gospel of Mark came out
about 55 A.D. So, there’s this gap 20-year,
30-year gap when there was no written
gospel yet.
What were the Christians doing when
there was no written Gospel, and why was
there no written gospel during that time?
Ask me ‘why’? This is what they were doing.
If you met someone wonderful,
and that someone changed your life
forever,
what would you be doing? You would be
telling stories. Yes, or no? You would be
telling. You would be talking about
this Jesus, who changed my life forever.
And they did not see the need to write
the stories, because they were living in
the story. Peter was still there, right
beside them. John, James, Philip,
Bartholomew, Thomas, they were still there!
You know. They could just go to Peter
and say, “Peter, Peter? What happened again
to that multiplication of the loaves? Can
you tell us.”
“Oh, this is what happened. You know. There
were 5,000 men, and not counting women,
and children. And then, Jesus had this
bread.” They were there!
“Oh, John. What did Jesus do like?
You said, one day you went up this
mountain, and then all of a sudden he
exploded and brilliant light, did that
happen?” And John would say, “Yes, I was with
Peter and with
James, my brother. And we went to Mount
Tabor. And that was there, when Jesus had
the transfiguration.” They were there. And
then, all of a sudden they got into
prison. “Where’s Peter?” “He’s in prison”. “He’s
in prison.” “What?” “Yeah, after a while.” “What
happened to Peter?” “He got crucified but
inverted.” “What?” “Where’s John”? “Oh John, went to
Ephesus.” “Ephesus? My gosh! Can you email
him? Tell him to tell us stories, you know.
There are no emails yet. Okay, what’s
going to happen? So, they said, “We might need
to write stories.” We tell these
stories but the Apostles, they’re dying.
And we need to write them down. Not only
that, but there were some false claims
that came out about Jesus. There were
some guys who said, “You know what? I heard
this story that when Jesus was seven
years old, he was fighting with a
playmate. And what Jesus did was he
fried the brains of his playmate. And
people said, “What?” “Are you sure?” “Yeah
that’s what I heard from someone.” “Oh, but
that doesn’t sound like Jesus” you
know. And then, there were
other people who were claiming to be
Jesus. “I am Jesus, 2.0. The better version.”
You know, and they said, “No, we don’t
think you’re so…” They said, we
better write this
authentic stories. And so, that’s what
stage two happen. They started writing the
stories of Jesus. Mark was the first one
to said, “Okay I need to write. I need to
write what I heard.” And then,
Matthew, and Luke, and then,
John. Now stage 3 is… Stage 3 is the
need to canonize. To canonize because… You
know, this were not only the four Gospels
that were circulating. No, there were
many other Gospels that they were
circulating during that time.
Gospel of truth. The gospel of Thomas. The
gospel of Mary Magdalene. They were
circulating. And they needed to say,
“are all these true? Some of them are not
true?” And it was Irenaeus in the year 180
A.D,
who decided, “I think we need an official
list. We need an official list.” And it was
true that during that time, the most
accepted Gospels were already Matthew,
Mark, Luke, and John. And in the year 400
plus AD, 200 years after Irenaeus said
that — there was a Council of Carthage. And
the Catholic Church made a decision and
say, “These are the four Gospels included
in the Bible. These are the 27 books
included in the new testament. Official
list. Canon… Canon means list. Okay, this
is we’re canonizing it. This is it. Okay?
The others may be inspiring. The others
are apocryphal. These are
deuterocanonical. Meaning to say,
they are you know in addition to the
main cannon.
“But guys, 27. This is it. 27 books.
Guy, four Gospels only. Matthew,
Mark, Luke, and John.” I’m gonna talk about
the core. Everybody say ‘core’. The core
message of the gospel. What’s it all
about?
You want to know? Are you sure you want
to know? This is going to rock your world.
Are you ready? The core message of the
gospel is the kingdom. The kingdom. And I
know you’ve got this glazed look on your
face.
“Kingdom?” Yeah, yeah. Kingdom. I’ll show it
to you Mark 1:15. “The time is fulfilled
and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent
and believe in the gospel.” No Kingdom, no
gospel. Those two are volted in.
You can’t separate them. In fact, in Matthew 6:9…
Jesus was with his disciples and
the disciples asked Jesus, “Jesus, can you
teach us to pray?” And Jesus said, “This is
how you pray.” He was so serious about the
kingdom. He said, “This is how you prayed:
Our Father who art in heaven. Holy be
your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be
done…” The core message of the gospel is
kingdom! But we have this glazed look
in our eyes like… “Kingdom?” Because, are
there still kingdoms today?
Are there still kings today? Unless you
play a deck of cards. I mean,
there’s a queen in England. But that’s
about it. Like King? Kingdom? But you see?
That’s the point.
But unless you get it, you won’t get the
gospel. The core message of the gospel is
that you’ve got to follow the king of
the kingdom. Now, think with me.
That every part of your life should be
building the kingdom. Yesterday, I gave a
whole day seminar on building their wealth.
Because it was an investment seminar.
Teaching people how to invest in the
stock market.
People build their wealth. And people go
about building their family. And building
their marriage. And building their future.
And building their career. And building
their health. And that’s all fine. In fact,
you need to be busy building this and
building that. Because that’s your
responsibility. But there’s a big BUT.
Everybody say ‘BUT’.
If that’s what your life is just all
about; building your little kingdom.
Building your little empire. Building
your career, and your profession, and your
business. Building your dreams, all that
is good. But it can’t be just about that!
You’re called for bigger things. You’re
made for bigger things.
You’re designed to do bigger things.
You’re not just there to build your
little Kingdom. Or else, you’ll be so
empty. And you will not be fulfilled. And
you will not have true joy. You need to
build the kingdom of the king.
You need to follow the king. Everybody
say ‘follow the king’. Now, when you hear
the word ‘build the kingdom’,
automatically people think, “Okay, I’m
going to resign from my job, and be a nun.”
That’s what people think about building
the kingdom. Can I say this?
For some of you; you don’t even have to
change what you do — to build the kingdom.
For some of you, you just have to change
why you do what you do. Maybe you’re a
teacher, and you’ve decided to build a
kingdom, guess what? You’re not just a
teacher, you are now raising a generation
of kids that will follow Jesus, the king
of the kingdom.
And maybe you’re a husband. You’re a wife. You’re a
spouse. Don’t just call yourself, you know.
“Oh, we’re here… We just want to have a
family, and that’s all we’re going to do.” But
if you’re serious about building the
kingdom of God, let me tell you what
you’re doing. Husband/wife, you are
building your marriage to the point that
your marriage becomes a giant billboard,
that announces that God is alive, why?
When people see your marriage, they will
scratch their head, and they will say,
“Look at those two people, they shouldn’t
be going along. They shouldn’t be getting
along. But somewhere, somehow, they’re
loving each other. My gosh! God is alive.
Miracles happen.” What you’re doing now is building the
kingdom of God, if you make a decision to
follow the king in every area of your
life. Tell somebody beside you, “Follow the
king”, “Follow the king”.
There are 482 Feasts around the world.
You know, I just came from London. And I
met The Feasts there. I didn’t know
Basingstoke London, they’ve been meeting
for three years. The leader from Norway
Oslo came. Met me. Shocked to realize
they’ve been going on for three years.
I’ve never met them. Never seen them. But
for three years, this bunch of volunteers
decided, “I made for bigger
things.
Yeah, I’m working here as a nurse.
But I’m going to
build the kingdom.” And they meet
every week in their homes. And
there’s a nurse in Abu Dhabi.
She said, “I made for bigger things. Yes,
I’m a nurse here in Abu Dhabi, but
I’m going to build the kingdom. Not only as
a nurse who serves patients well, and
and lives the gospel.”
She decided… Once a week, she’ll visit a
house and lead a Feast for domestic
helpers. Do you know what time that Feast
is? Ask me ‘what time’? Midnight. Because
that’s the only time the domestic
helpers could gather to pray. And that’s
what she does every single week. There’s
a Feast going on in Taguig. In
a drug rehab center. Every week, a bunch
of volunteers go there, and they lead a
Feast for these guys and gals.
And they tell me — that you know,
when they start praying… When they start
showing the video, the preaching, the guys
are just weeping. Sobbing. And it happens
every week. It’s crazy. There’s
another Feast in Sta. Rosa, where? In
jail. Again, volunteers from the Sta.
Rosa Feast from the big Feast,
they decided, “We’re going to change lives.
We’re going to build the kingdom.” They go to
the prison. And then every week, they lead
a Feast. I want you to know they have no
problems with attendance.
No problems! Always full house. Complete
attendance every week. And you see, these
guys… All guys just raising their hands
in prayer. Prisoners, their lives are
changing, because some people made a
decision, “I’m not going to build my little
empire only. I’m not just going to live for
myself. I’ve had it. Because God has given
me God dreams. And God capacities to
fulfill those God dreams.” You have God
capacities in your soul. Do you know Lebron
James? Probably the greatest basketball…
You can debate on that. Okay? One of
the greatest athlete… Basketball athletes
today. Today. Maybe there are other who
are greater than him before. And you know,
but I’m just saying — that one of
the greatest athlete basketball players
today, Lebron James. What if he decides to
play in the NBA?
Not National Basketball Association, but
the Navotas Basketball Association? And
Inter-barangay level?
How would he feel? No doubt. He will be
MVP. Most Vored player. Some people are so busy
building their own
dreams. Building their own little world.
Their own little ambitions, with the God
capacities that is in them. No wonder
they feel empty. Because you are made for
bigger things. You’re made to build the
kingdom of the king.

want to be your partner in this ministry.”
Without your help, we cannot be able to
do this. And really from the bottom of my
heart just want to say ‘thank you’. This is
Bo Sanchez, here praying that God will,
you know, touch your heart. And
make us part of your life. And this
mission of blessing on the world can be
part also of your heart.
[Mike Vinas] Hi guys! My name is Mike Vinas. And this
is Wealth & Wisdom. You know, when it
comes to our career, ideally, we’d want to
be doing something that we’re passionate
about. Something we’d love doing. But also
something that we are paid well for. In
other words, we want in one career, one
job, in one business, high pay and high
passion. But that is the goal. A lot of us
are still journeying towards that. And so,
in the meantime, we probably would find
ourselves in two situations. The first
situation is, maybe you find yourself in
a low-paying job, but you love what you
do. In other words; it’s low pay, but high
passion. And so, if you’re in a situation
like that, you’ve got to somehow or
supplement your pay, your income. And
there are a lot of creative ways these
days to be able to do that. You can find
part-time work online. Some of my friends
they taught English to Koreans and
Japanese also online. Or some of them
built their own small business. For me as
a guy who is in ministry, and I want to
be able to build, and provide well for my
family, I would have to somehow also find
other streams of income to augment my
pay. The second situation that maybe
you’re in, is that you’re in a good high
paying job, but it’s something that you
don’t really enjoy or you don’t love it
that much. So, if you’re in that situation,
what you’ve got to do is to be able to
supplement your passion. So, what other
people do is that yes, they go to do
their jobs. They do it well. But let’s say
on the weekends, they volunteer. They
serve in ministry. They serve in
different NGOs. They pursue a hobby. They
go into music and acting. All sorts of
different things just to somehow give
them joy and fulfillment doing something
that they love. And so, like for me, before
when I was employed — the fully employed
in this company, I would work my best
on weekdays. And on weeknights and on
weekends, I would serve in ministry to
augment my passion. So to summarize; if
you find yourself one again in a
situation where you have low pay, and high
passion, then you’ve got to be able to
augment or improve on your streams of
income.
But if you find yourself in a situation
where you have good pay, high pay but low
passion — you’ve got to find things that
will make you happy. That will make you
come alive. You’ve got to augment or
supplement your passion. But if you find
yourself in a situation where you have
low pay and low passion, that’s difficult to handle.
Why don’t you find another job?
In other words, maybe you need to
shift career or change jobs, so that you
can find at least a good opportunity for
you. But ultimately, really the goal is
for us to be able to have joy, and
fulfillment for what we do and what we
get out of it. But definitely, we want to
be able to reach that day where it’s
high pay, and high passion. But till that
day, let’s continue to help one another.
So thank you very much for watching
Wealth & Wisdom. I hope you learned
something today that will help you grow
in your career, and in your wealth. God
bless you.
The Lord’s Prayer “Is truly the summary
of the whole gospel.” “Since the Lord… after
handing over the practice of prayer, said
elsewhere, ‘ask and you will receive,’ and
since everyone has petitions which are
peculiar to his circumstances, the
regular and appropriate prayer is said
first, as the foundation of further
desires.” After showing how the Psalms are
the principal food of Christian prayer,
and flow together in the petitions of our Father,
St. Augustine concludes: Run
through all the words of the holy
prayers, and I do not think that you will
find anything in them that is not
contained and included in the Lord’s
prayer.
Song: Build my Life by Pat Barrett/Kirby Kaple/Karl Martin

[Bo Sanchez] I want you to lift up your Novena to
God’s love. If it’s there in your wallet
or in your phone. I want you to know that
your dreams… It’s okay if you didn’t
bring them. Just lift them up all the
dreams in your heart. But I want you to
know that this little dreams have to be
placed on the big dream. God’s dream for
your life.
And unless there’s a connection between
your small dreams and God’s big dream
for you, you will never know true
happiness anyway. So I want you just to
come before God right now. And again, say
this with me in faith.
Everybody just say, “Jesus, I thank you for
giving me God-dreams. And I thank you for
giving me God-capacities
to fulfill these God-dreams. I surrender
my life to you.
I trust you. And I declare today. I will
follow the King of the kingdom. And my
whole life I dedicate, to building the
kingdom of Jesus. Jesus!
Never look down on yourself. Never ever
do that. You are God’s child. And when you
understand that you are His son/His
daughter, it will change the way you look
at yourself, and the way you look at
other people as well. Because if you
learn to love yourself, the way God loves
you, and like yourself the way God likes
you, it’ll be so much easier to love
other people. And I want to pray for you
right now — that God’s grace becomes so
real in your life. Let’s do that. In the
name of the Father, and of the Son, and of
the Holy Spirit. Father in heaven, thank
you that — that we can just hold your hand
and reach out to your grace. And yes, we
open our palms to you. And we open our
hands and our hearts to you. To receive
that grace that can only come from you.
Father God, we receive everything that we
need from you. Your love. And we say thank
you Lord, that we can come to you in
confidence. Because we are your children.
And you do accept us, and you do love us.
And we receive this embrace from you. And
we receive this grace from you. In Jesus’
name. Amen
and amen. In the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Amen. God bless you. This is Bo Sanchez,
here in Kerygma TV. Live a fantastic
life!
