I am a World Changer: The Ignite Experience

If I were to summarize what I have learned during my Ignite experience into one word, it would be PURPOSE.

Caroline, one of the ENC Leaders, at Ignite 2015 held last June 2-4.

When I became a Christian, and I started having a relationship with God, he started to reveal to me the reason why I exist in this world, and that He created me for a purpose. But I went on and continued with my journey in life, and I became busy doing the things the world demands. I still knew my purpose but it is not something that motivates me to wake up in the morning anymore. It was there, but I wasn’t there with it.

When Ignite was being introduced to us, I decided to go even if I did not feel like going because I know that deep down in my heart God is going to rekindle something in me during that conference.

Little did I know that He would let me burn with that purpose I received a long time ago- to let the whole world know that His love is the greatest love of all! Jesus is the answer!

Today I am beyond grateful for making the right decision to go. He reminded me that I am not just an ordinary person. He has called me to do great- even greater things! He opened my eyes and made me see what he can do to my campus.

I was a passive Victory group leader back then. I did not have the burden to reach out. I wanted people to come to me, instead of me reaching to them. I realized how ungodly I was and how selfish I had been to keep the Gospel to myself. Jesus was never like that. He has always been about reaching out to the lost.

God exposed impurities in my heart and restored me while I was in Araneta Coliseum. He has given me a new heart and a new spirit. He told me that I can change my campus and at the same time influence the world by being excellent in the marketplace he has put me into. There may be struggles ahead but I am an over comer.

I am a world changer. This is not my battle but this is God’s. Therefore, I am confident that the victory is already ours! Even if my faith is as small as a mustard seed, I can say to the mountain, “Move from here to there.” and it will move because nothing will be impossible for me. This is the power God has given to me as His daughter.

I have decided to use this power. I am not going to waste it! Changing the world is not going to be easy. We will have to do it one campus at a time, but it is going to be worth it!

Biyaheng Semana Santa

holy week

Holy Week has become a major religious culture for the Filipinos. Year after year, people close out offices, schools and open up to the streets and mountain sides to celebrate rituals that, according to passed down belief, help us inherit eternal life.

The Bible is clear about the way to eternal life, and it is not a ritual, nor is it a religion. It is a person- Jesus Christ.

This series, we look into the revelation of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection, and it’s implications on us, in this age and the age to come. Get ready for Biyaheng Semana Santa!

Here is the list of weekly topics:

Week one: Balic-Balic (“Holy Week’”)

Week two: Paco (“Sakripisyo”)

Week three: Bagong Pag-Asa (“Patay ang Diyos”)

Simple

Victory exists for two things: to honor God, and to make disciples. At the beginning of the year, we all learned what it means to honor God in everything that we do and with everything that we are.

The application was clear, that God should be the center of everything that we do. This time, join us as we look into what discipleship means, and what it takes to be one and to make one. Discipleship is simple, and it is for everyone!

BC: The Christmas Series

The Christmas season is not only a time to celebrate the gifts, not buenas and family reunions.

As wonderful and God-honoring as these things are, the main thing at this time should always be to remember the great promise of redemption, marked by the birth of Jesus here on earth.
