Temptation dahil tao lamang, Ligaw at Naliligaw….
1. Ok lang pong bang mag give in sa mga temptation?…. kasi tao lamang ako?..eto po ang madalas na sinasabi sa akin ng matalik kung kaibigan….”tao lamang ako ” nag aalala ako kasi kahit yung relationship nya sa girlfriend lumabo dahil dito
Totoo na tao lamang tayo pero di ibig sabihin yan na nabubuhay tayo para mag give in sa temptation. Minsan kasi eto na yung excuse na gamit natin para magkasala. Atsaka kung eto ang lagi nating excuse pwede din sabihin ng taong gustong magsuicide dahil nagkamali siya “eh tao lang” pero yun lang nga tigok na siya.
Lahat tayo tempted, sinabi sa Bible yan pero sabi din sa Bible
1 Corinthians 10:13 English Standard Version (ESV)
13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Ibig sabihin wala din tayong excuse na tao lamang tayo kasi di tayo bibigyan ni Lord ng temptation na di natin kaya. That’s why it is important that you are part of a local church and that you are willing to be discipled. Madaming ways binigay si Lord para di tayo mahulog sa temptation.
Psalm 119:11 English Standard Version (ESV)
11 I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
So kaya kung kaya, kaya naman basta may tulong ni Lord pero kung own strength natin, malabo!
2. Is it okay to invite this girl to church. She kind of has feelings for me. I’m just beginning to see it, even though my friend and my sister have been telling me that. I’ve been trying to invite her since last sem. Should I just pray for her then?
depende brother. Ang unang katanungan – Christian ba siya o hindi? Mahirap manligaw ng hindi mo ka same faith. I blogged about that here. So sana di DISCIPLECHICKS OR EVANGELIGAW ang gawin mo.
Ngayon pag of age naman kayo, may trabaho ka at graduate na rin siya, at prepared ka na physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually – why not? Baka nga ikaw na yung inaantay niya dream boy sa buhay niya. Pero again sana handa ko kung hindi ikaw ang magiging Nightmare on Elm Street niya!!!
3. Ptr Dennis, the first time I met Jesus, I was 15. Then I started to not put Him first in everything I did and I even lost my virginity to my boyfriend at the age of 17. I just recently truly knew who Jesus was and I feel bad about what we did. I want to spiritually grow and completely surrender my life to Him. My boyfriend understands and he wants to know Him as well. We both repent for the immorality we did. What should we do? Should we break up for now and grow spiritually and still get back together in the future? Or not breaking up because we have decided to get married in the future and just help each other out to grow spiritually now and put Him first above everything? Right now all i want is to please God but I really want to know what will happen to me and my boyfriend. Especially since he was my bestfriend before we got into a relationship and we’ve been completely serious about getting married in the future
Okay sister, alam naman natin pag tayo lumayo sa will ni Lord, nagkakaloko ang mga decisions and actions natin and that is what happened. I thank God that He convicted you of your sin. I cannot say that with your boyfriend since hindi naman niya ako na message about his feelings. So what should you do?
Payong kapatid lang… kung ako kuya mo, papayo king mag break up muna kayo though desisyon mo pa rin yan. Bakit yan ang payo ko? Kasi feeling ko ( well feeling ko lang naman), na kailangan niyo mag grow individually kay Lord. When you committed pre-marital sex, you defiled the marriage bed. In short, may mga personal issues kayong dalawa with the Lord. Pwede din na naging lord niyo na ang isa’t isa kaya ko sinasabi na mag break up muna kayo para magisip isip about your walk with God and with your future.
Sa boyfriend mo, payo ko lang: “Brother kung mahal mo talaga si sister, respeto naman at huwag lang habol ang sex. Tandaan mo, anak yan ng Diyos at ng tatay niya na pwede kang gulpihin pag nalaman ang pinaggagawa niyo. Pangalawa, di ba best friend mo yan- ibig sabihin you should have good intentions with her. Kung mahal mo yan, set her free and let her grow in God. If you are contemplating about marriage already, why not plan getting married na. Ngayon pag hindi pa pala handa, why are you in a relationship?
Hope my answer helps
