Obedience is better than sacrifice

These photos were taken last Sunday :) our friend Andrew took it and posted on his facebook page with this message : "Thank you Ptr. Rudolf Abadiano for the great and powerful message last sunday! Indeed Obedience is better than Sacrifice. Keep it up bro!"

It's very seldom that Rudolf preach in our church because I believe he is not a preacher but a worship leader. But I am so blessed to see him share the word in the pulpit also once in a while. Often times I get anxious and worried about him speaking in front of our congregation but I let go and let God.

Nevertheless, hearing him speak last Sunday makes me one proud wife. Feels like I have beautiful revlon hair hehe! I praise God for my husband's life, for being available for HIM wherever He needs him, for choosing to obey the Lord and be His servant. It's all worth it.

Glory to God!

Getting and Giving Back to the Lord

1 Samuel 1:28 – Getting and Giving Back to the Lord

Therefore I have lent him to the Lord. As long as he lives, he is lent to the Lord.” And he worshiped the Lord there. (1 Samuel 1:28 ESV)
Have you ever wanted something so bad, you would do almost anything to see it happen? It seems to consume you and feel as though your life would be complete when this event takes place. Hannah did. She was barren and getting older every year while her husband’s other wife was having kids and rubbing it in her face. God heard her prayers and graciously gave her a son.
But, what did Hannah do with that great treasure? She gave him back to the Lord, allowing him to be raised in the temple, set apart for service to him. Think about what you have been asking God for. Are you ready to give it back? Is that why you haven’t received it yet? Remember, after Hannah gave her son to the Lord, he blessed her with more.
Everything we have comes from the Father (1 Corinthians 4:7),  follow Hannah’s example by giving it all back for his use and glory.
