Thank You, Lord, Forever

By Samuel Geroy

    Learning to thank God will prepare us for eternity. Thanking the Lord will be one of the main tasks there. We better learn this grace as quickly as possible because eternity is getting nearer faster than we expect.


    But why is it so important to thank God that it is one of our main tasks forever? In 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says that it is God’s will for us in Christ Jesus, therefore it must be the best thing for us to do in all circumstances. This act of obedience shows our reverence for Christ also, according to Ephesians 5:20. If so, it is such a beautiful thing to abound in as we are taught in Colossians 2:7. This will result in the peace of God reigning in our hearts no matter what happens around us, so says Colossians 2:7. Therefore, we believers should always be watchful in prayer with thanksgiving because this is the proper way to conduct ourselves in this life, Colossians 4:2,5.


    So then, what are we to thank God for? It is basic that we thank God for His design of our lives as Psalm 26:7 states. Cain insisted to follow his own design for his life by giving God the first fruits of his labor in Genesis 4. But his brother Abel’s offering was a lamb sacrifice that God required. His offering was accepted while Cain’s was rejected. Because of this Cain got angry with his brother and slew him. God was pleased with Abel because of his obedience and humility so that his life speaks to us even today. This is equivalent to our believing in God’s way of salvation through Jesus Christ today.


    The next way to thank God is by giving the Lord’s tithes and our offerings (Proverbs 3:9-10). Here God gives the promise of blessing in return. Ten lepers were healed by the Lord Jesus in Luke 17:11-19, but only one returned to thank Him. Because this Samaritan recognized his debt of love, the Lord said that he was not only healed from leprosy, but was also made whole in his soul. Another way of thanking God is by multiplying the ministry of those who have given to us. Aristarchus of Thessalonica did this by leaving a life of ease and joining the apostle Paul during his third missionary journey in order to contribute in missionary work. He was even imprisoned with him (Colossians 4:10, Philemon 24, Acts 20:4, 27:2). Though difficult, Aristarchus helped multiply Paul’s ministry by joining his labors. God also wants us believers to find and fulfill our place of service.


    One more way to thank God is by our accepting difficulties as part of God’s provision for our lives, Hebrews 12:15,16. The discipline of adversity comes as we mature in the Lord. This way God teaches us to mount up with wings as eagles (Isaiah 40:31) and learning to run in this world of difficulties yet not becoming weary. And if we can’t run anymore, we can still continue by walking and not fainting.


    Completing these four phases of thankfulness makes us mature in Christ and ready for eternal service someday.

How to Build a Church Music Ministry

Practical, Biblical Helps for a Thriving Music Ministry

by Dr. Ron Hamilton
Music Minister, Calvary Baptist Church
posted with permission from ministry127.com

Original Article posted here.

It is difficult to put into words what elements are necessary to build a successful, effective church music ministry, but there are some general principles that must be followed. Here are a few principles I consider to be the most important.

The Foundation of a Music Ministry

The ministry must be built on the principles of the Word of God. In the many years that I have taught practicing church musicians who were taking graduate level music courses, I have found very few who could say that they knew all the references to music in the Bible. A solid music ministry must be grounded in the Bible. “Except the LORD build the house, they labor in vain that build it” (Psalm 127:1).

There must be a strong leader in charge of the ministry. Dr. Lee Roberson said, “everything rises and fall on leadership,” and 1 Chronicles 6:33 says that the leaders of the music in the temple were “the chief of the fathers of the Levites.” In other words, they were at “the top,” the best that could be found, “the cream of the crop.” The “music pastor” must love the Lord with all his heart and he must keep his own life pure and clean. He must be developing himself into the best musician he can possibly be and he must be constantly improving his abilities. He must also be willing to work hard, because I Chronicles 9:33 says that the musicians “were employed in that work day and night.” A music ministry cannot be built by a lazy musician no matter how talented he might be.

The music leader must love what the Lord has called him to do so that his enthusiasm will be felt in every aspect of the ministry, including the congregational singing, the choir rehearsals, the special groups, and all his personal contacts. He must have high standards for himself as well as for those with whom he is working, but he must also be realistic concerning the potential of the people who serve him: the pianist, the organist, and any other musicians who are his helpers (Romans 16:2–3).

Practical Helps for a Music Ministry

Having said this about the leader, let me now mention some practical things I have found over the last 60 years that work in building a church music ministry.

Start with the children. I have taught music to children from kindergarten all the way up to doctoral candidates, and I must say it is easier to teach the children. It is amazing how fast they can learn! The two basic things that must be taught are learning to sing on pitch (match pitches) and how to perform and maintain a steady beat (rhythm). If you are having trouble in your music ministry, it is probably because you have adults who have never learned these two basic skills. The best thing about these two skills is that once they are learned, that cannot be unlearned! So begin with the children, and the sooner the better. The emphasis of the Bible on children cannot be ignored in a music ministry (Luke 18:16).

Build your music ministry around the congregation. Even Halley in his Bible Handbook said:
It is better that the people sing than that they listen to singing. Why not turn the whole congregation into a choir. Under proper leadership, the hymns of a vast congregation could be made to rise like the swell of an ocean’s roar, and cause angels in heaven to lean over and listen.
Have your congregation memorize hymns, and then have music classes to teach them how to read music. As your church begins to realize how wonderful it is to sing enthusiastically for the Lord, they will beg to be in your choir.

Develop as many special groups as you can. The more you enlist people into your ministry, the faster it will grow. But be certain that you develop groups, not just soloists. Don’t have “prima donnas” who sing solos but do not participate in the choir. If a person has a good enough voice to sing a solo, he or she should definitely be a part of the choir. Develop the innate hidden talent that is in your church.

The rewards of being the a music ministry are many: I get to serve the Lord with something I love with all my heart; God gives me the privilege of seeing people’s lives changed through the ministry to which He has called me; I now have former students who are serving the Lord because of the opportunities I have had to encourage and challenge them, and a large number of them are now even serving the Lord as effective ministers of music themselves (Psalm 71:17–18). What more could a minister of music ask for?

The Way of True Love

by Rev. Samuel D. Geroy

     Love is the way of all living things. Animals, birds and even flowers show love and harmony. The world is beautiful because of it. God invented love and He is the source of all true love. His love is the foundation of all loves.


     True love is very illusive. Writers, composers, singers and painters search for it. They find it in their dreams and art, but they don’t seem to find it in reality. Often, they find true love after it is gone.


LOVE COMES SOFTLY


     Love is a gift from God for man to enjoy. He made Adam to fall asleep and formed Eve from one of his ribs (a feminine rib). He brought her to him- a gift for a companion who was his mirror image on the female side.


     Love comes as a fire that slowly consumes the heart until it explodes that even the floodwaters cannot stop (Song of Solomon 8:6).


     It comes exclusively for only one. As one wisely summarized it: Love is the loneliness of one, the happiness of two, and the quarrel of three. Jesus said that we cannot serve two masters because we only love one and hate the other. Love is only understood and enjoyed fully if is concentrated on only one person or you will not comprehend and taste its fullness, and the less it will give back to you. Love’s meaning is only complete if it is devoted to only one.

     You cannot dictate or divide love because it comes naturally, spontaneously and softly.


LOVE COMES WITH A PURPOSE


     In this aspect, marriage serves the purposes of God and man.


     Married love is for
companionship. God saw that Adam was lonely even in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2:18). In this harsh world we live in, two are better than one for they can cope and withstand better together (Song of Solomon 4:9-12).
 
    Married love is for enjoyment. Intimacy in marriage is the sweetest joy man and woman can experience because it is a gift from God. It is also for completeness because man is so different from a woman, and vice versa yet together they complete and complement each other.

    Fruitfulness
is the miraculous result of married love. Only a woman’s body can produce a child so that a man must love, care and surrender to a woman in order to have one. The woman also must chose the right kind of man to be the father of her children. No other wealth in this world can equal the joy of having a child who is truly your own flesh and blood.

     Marriage is
protection against other men or women, and also against dangers, insecurities, needs, and changes in this world. Paul wrote that a husband should even give his life for his wife if necessary.

     Best of all, a successful married love is an
illustration of your vibrant and satisfying relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, as your Savior and Lord. In the ultimate sense your marriage has nothing to do with your spouse. It has everything to do with your surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ.

LOVE COMES WITH RESPONSIBILITIES


     The husband is commanded to lead, and to lead in love. Love is the woman’s deepest need and without love she reacts. That love is given without conditions for it was a command and need not to be earned.


     The wife is commanded to submit, and to submit with respect. Respect is the man’s deepest need and without it he reacts. That respect is given without conditions for it was a command and need not be earned.


     The spiritual husband will continue to love his wife regardless of her respect and in the long run his love will bless her. The spiritual wife will continue to respect her husband regardless of his love and in the end her respect will bless him. This is God’s way for resolving doubts and conflicts in marriage. Marriage is a test of how you unconditionally love and respect your spouse as you obey, honor and please the Lord. When your first goal is to obey and please Jesus Christ, your needs will be met and your marriage will flourish.


     Marriages are made in heaven, but there is no perfect marriage. Usually a wife becomes perfect after she is dead, or a man becomes the best husband in the world during his funeral. Perfection is not the goal of marriage, but love and respect are. It is the harmony and balance of love and respect that makes a marriage “perfect.”


TRUE LOVE


     When you truly love someone, you desire to truly possess him/her, to make him/her your own- that means marry him/her in the right way. Otherwise, it is not believable.


     Love is the most excellent way (1 Corinthians 12:31) because love is practicing the very essence of God. Love then is better than anything else, therefore it is the greatest. It is the best way to exercise all good things. It is the sum total of all gifts and the manifestation of all goodness. Love the Lord Jesus Christ and He will give you such kind of love.


     Love makes life worth living and significant. Only when love is the motivation for something does that thing becomes meaningful. The ideal is to fall in love with someone and to discover that he/she is God’s will for you.


How do you maintain True Love?


     Romance keeps marriage interesting. Hold her hand again, look into her eyes. Commitment keeps romance from dwindling away. Remember it was your decision, and you promised in the presence of God and man. Then you spent so much for your wedding. Fight hard for the unity and success of your marriage and family. Fight all temptations, renew and review love for each other often. Be near each other as much as possible and don’t allow work, business or ambition to drive you far from each other for a long time. In short, if you want your marriage to become successful, take time and enjoy it.

 

Philosophy of Music

by Mark Herbster
posted with permission from herbsterevangelism.org


   Philosophy is the system of values and beliefs that guides our actions. The philosophy of music should branch forth from this definition. The values and beliefs of a philosophy must be rooted in a solid foundation. For the world, these beliefs are based on human experience, emotion, and opinion.


    The Christian's values, however, should be grounded in the sure foundation of scripture. A Christian whose value system is not rooted in scripture is no different from the world. Many people overlook scriptural teaching in the area of music. Instead they rely on what they like, or on what they think is good music. The real question is "what is God's philosophy of music?" The scripture has a lot to say to answer this question, and it speaks about the area of music many times. Remember, the commitment must be to the Word of God, not human experience. God does have a philosophy of music. It can be described in six words, as follows: the plan, priority, power, purpose, principles, and participation of music.

    From the creation of the world God planned for music to be a vital part of creation. In Ezekiel 28:13, many Bible scholars believe that the prophet Ezekiel is speaking of Lucifer, the great archangel. The context is in the garden of Eden. Ezekiel says that "the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created." So, it seems very probable that music was created by God in that first creation week. The over 600 scripture passages with reference to music point to God's overwhelming plan for music. God made it; it was His plan, not man's. It was made to reflect the beauty and order of His creation. Not only did God create the plan for music but He placed a special priority on music. Two hundred times in scripture God commands us to sing. In the New Testament, it is clear that God has chosen the foolishness of preaching to save souls, but second only to preaching is the area of music. Early on in the Old Testament the people of God knew there should be an emphasis on good music. Genesis 4:21 talks about a man named Jubal who was the father of all who handle the harp and organ. In Exodus Moses expressed himself through music. God wrought a great victory at Jericho partially through music. David set certain paid individuals to lead in the singing and playing of music in the temple. He saw the priority of music. All the way through Israel's history, music was a priority, and it should be a priority in these days as well. God showed the priority of music when He included a divinely inspired song book, the Psalms.

    There is such a priority placed on music in scripture simply because of the power of music. Music has the power to communicate a message far greater than the simple spoken word. Many times in scripture when someone was overwhelmed with emotion, he would communicate that message through song. Deuteronomy 31:19 speaks of a song being a witness, and Deuteronomy 31:21 says a song can testify. Music has the power to accomplish victories as it did for Joshua and Gideon. Music can comfort as it did for King Saul. Music can lead us to worship, or music can lead us to rebellion. Man understands the power of music very well. There are music companies who have researched the effect of certain styles of music on shopping. The world uses music to set different moods for various activities. It is no surprise to anyone that music can be a powerful tool to communicate a certain message.


   If God planned music and placed great priority and power on it, then what is its purpose? There is a threefold purpose of music. First, music is to glorify God. Glorification has the idea of giving a right opinion about God. Psalm 147:1 says, "Praise ye the Lord; for it is good to sing praise unto our God; for it is pleasant, and praise is comely." Throughout the book of Psalms music is used to glorify the character of God and to praise Him for His mighty works toward men. This glory and praise can be summed up in one word: Worship. A Hymn is written for the express purpose of worship. It focuses on the person and works of God.


    The second purpose is subordinate to the first. It is found in Colossians 3:16. Music is for the teaching and admonishing of the saints. Simply put, music should edify the believer. Truly, if the music is glorifying God, it will also edify the believer who is filled with the Spirit (Eph 5:18-19). Many times Gospel songs are written with the express purpose of edification.

    The third purpose is the least emphasized in scripture, and that is the evangelization of the lost. Scripture does not specifically state this purpose, but it does imply that when the unsaved see the changed life of a believer, and their heart felt worship and praise to God through singing, they will recognize the difference. The problem comes when we are willing to sacrifice the first two purposes for the purpose of winning souls. This is pragmatism. The end does not justify the means. Music should first glorify God. If it does, then it will edify the believer. If it edifies the believer, then the unsaved will notice and may be saved.


    These purposes should be applied to each area of music and its performance. The text, music, performer, and performance style must conform to the scriptural purpose in order to be scriptural music. All four of these areas must be evaluated in order to make proper choices in music.


    The plan, priority, power, and purpose of music have been laid out. Now, what are some basic scriptural principles of music? It is clear that music will not fulfill its Biblical purpose unless it agrees with Biblical principles. Music styles change, but the principles of God's Word do not. Cultures change, but Biblical principles span all cultures.


    The "new song" principle is found in Psalm 40:3. Our song as Christians should be new in quality and freshness. It should be characteristic of a changed life. When a person is born again, the Bible says that he becomes a new creature in Christ. Those old characteristics of the natural sin condition are passed away, and all things are become new. This change certainly should affect the area of music. The newness in quality is not speaking exclusively of the text, but is including music, performer and performance style as well. We should not be conforming to the world but confronting the world with our changed life.


    The second principle is the principle of appropriateness. In other words, the music and the text should be appropriate for each other. Colossians 3:16 says, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." Paul links the word of God to specific kinds of songs. It is clearly making a connection between text and music. There are appropriate songs for presenting God's message and there are inappropriate songs for presenting God's message. The method of presentation is just as important as the message. It will either support the message or detract from the message. Putting God's message with just any old music will not suffice. The music must agree with the text.


    The third principle is the principle of association. There may be some music that cannot be used simply because of the predominant associations. A certain song may be associated with a performer, a place, or a movement that is not in submission to scripture. Also, certain styles are associated with specific cultures or activities. For example, jazz is associated with the barroom scene. Christians should not associate themselves with wicked, pagan styles of music. This applies to secular music as well as sacred. Many churches today will gladly use music associated with wickedness in the "worship" of God. What a poor testimony, and blasphemy upon the name of Christ. "Wherefore come out from among them and be ye separate, and touch not the unclean thing (II Cor 6:17)."


    There are also some basic musical principles that need to be addressed. What makes a song a good, quality piece of music? Musicians in general would agree that the music itself (without the words and either secular or sacred) can be of excellent quality or poor quality. Music always consists of three elements: Melody, harmony, and rhythm. Without any one of these elements a composition is not music. These elements must be put in proper priority. The melody is the theme of the music. The harmony and rhythm are supposed to elevate the melody. Any time the melody becomes subordinate, the music is unbalanced. Both secular musicians and sacred would agree that melody affects the spirit or soul, harmony affects the mind and rhythm affects the body. Musicians know that they can get people to respond different ways by over emphasizing certain elements. For example: the New Age Movement seeks to help people self actualize by reaching an altered state of consciousness. One of the ways they use to accomplish their goal is music. The New Age style of music over emphasizes harmony. It is done on purpose to help people meditate and lose their mind. Styles are made by simply emphasizing certain elements in different ways. The only people who consistently argue about these basic musical principles are Christians! The secular musicians know exactly what they are doing!


    All these principles have been discussed because the Bible is clear that all Christians should be participating in music. Whether it be in special music, the choir, or congregational singing, all Christians should be singing and making melody in their hearts to the Lord. Not only should Christians be participating in music, but the right kind of music. It takes the Spirit's power and a knowledge of scriptural principles to properly discern what kind of music to use in listening or in ministry. It is not an easy task, but it is a necessary one. Just like God has commanded Christians to witness, he has also commanded His children to sing. It is disobedience when a born again believer chooses not to participate in music. Psalm 100 says, "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord all ye lands."


    God has a philosophy of music. He does not want us to just pick and choose as we see fit. So, we must have a value system even in the area of music. A sieve, to run our music through. The plan, priority, power, purpose, principles, and participation of music is a good place to start. God is concerned with the methods we use as well as the message that is presented. Drawing lines in the sand and taking strong stands in this battlefield is not easy, but it must be done to please the one who withstood the strongest battle when He went to an old rugged cross and defeated sin and Satan. The question is "How bad do I want to please God?"

Undying Family Values

by Rev. Samuel D. Geroy

    “God sets the lonely in families.” Psalm 68:6. The Word affirms that God’s cure for loneliness and insecurity is the family (Gen. 2:18). That is why there cannot be an inhabited world without families, values and love.


The House of the Righteous, Ephesians 5:21-6:4
    The most righteous act a man can do is to love his wife and children, support guide and protect them. For the wife, it is to submit and respect her husband, and fulfill her duties of motherhood. As parents, they should be their child’s best friends and greatest influence. The father is the child’s leader, idol and source of significance. The mother is the most tender person a child could ever know and his first teacher. Without them, there would be a great vacuum in a child’s life and it would be harder for him to grasp the idea of God and his love. They also give security, character and balance to prepare him for adulthood. In return, the right thing a child could do is to love, honor and respect his parents. This gives him marvelous blessings in life later. (Eph. 6:1,2) 


    Job was a model of character, integrity and poise before his wife and children in the face of extreme trials. He maintained a big-picture perspective in the midst of his testing while doing some soul-searching and asking God questions about life. He never abandoned his commitment to his core values.

The House of Love

    I Corinthians 13 details the face of a house full of love. It does not dwell in regrets despite wrong decisions because the wrong person becomes the right person upon marriage. Spouses accept each other because they forgive each other. Love is acceptance, not perfection. In this connection, children are not an accident or burden, but a bundle of joy and possibilities. Creating love in the family is a joint effort of each member, everyone contributing his share.
Timothy’s family started as a mixed marriage. But his mother Eunice and his grandmother Lois gave him all the love, and faith by teaching him Scriptures. They provided the balance and security that made him bold to decide to go on a dangerous mission with the apostle Paul, 2 Tim 1:5; Acts 16:1,2.

The House of the Diligent

   The diligent man prizes his possessions Proverbs 12:27 and achieves his goals. His hands bring wealth 10:4, and he will rule people 12:24. His house becomes a wisdom center 1 Peter 1:4-20; a learning center Deuteronomy 6:6-9; a hospitality center 2 Kings 4:89-10, Luke 14:13; a health center Exodus 15:26; a craft center Proverbs 31:10-31, Acts 9:39; and a ministry center Acts 18:1-4. The home is the hub of life and outreach. Hard work gives it creativity, service, a healthy life and financial means to achieve for God.

    Noah was diligent in his zeal for the Lord. He walked with God, Genesis 6:9; he listened when warned by God, 6:13-21; and he worked with God in building the ark, 6:22 and preaching to his people, 2 Peter 2:5. He gave up what he accumulated for 500 years for a greater purpose- to save the world and start a new generation of mankind with a new and higher understanding of God and his purposes Genesis 9.

The Household of Faith

    The home is a man’s castle where he protects his family from the influences of a hostile world and where his children start their training to prepare for life. Basic to that training is putting saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord. The home is also a man’s treasure house where he keeps his most cherished possessions- love, character and godliness for his wife and children. Here he begins to build a godly generation that will strengthen, propagate and preserve the Christian faith for the future in the face of great wickedness that is to come.


    By his new-found faith the Philippian jailor brought salvation to his household, Acts 16:31, and a joyful life despite great odds during the time of the Roman empire, 16:32-34.

    Righteousness, love, diligence, and faith are necessary family values that will never change even in this 21st century. Let us build our lives and that of our families upon it.

   God has wonderfully delivered us from this present evil world (age), according to the will of God and our Father (Gal. 1:4). We are bought with a price and we are no longer our own (1 Cor. 6:19-20). We are bought by blood and bound by love. We are separated unto the gospel of God (Rom. 1:1) and we are separated unto the God of the gospel. Having brought us out of a horrible pit and out of the miry clay, He has put a new song in our mouths (Psalm 40:1-3).


    The new song, by its very nature, must be very different from the old song. The world knows nothing of the new song. They know nothing of deliverance from sin and peace with God. They know nothing of a precious Saviour ("unto you, therefore, who believe He is precious"–1 Peter 2:7). To them the cross is foolishness (1 Cor. 1:18; 2:14). The only songs they know are self-centered and pleasing to the flesh. Those that are in the flesh cannot please God (Rom. 8:7-8), neither can their songs.


"The world knows nothing of the new song. They know nothing of deliverance from sin and peace with God"

   When I (George Zeller) first came to the Middletown Bible Church in 1969, it was my first exposure to a Bible believing church, and one of the first things I noticed was that the music was different. The pianist was not accomplished. She did the best she could and made her fair share of mistakes. But the people sang from their hearts as if they really meant what they were singing. They were not just going through a religious ritual. They were redeemed and they loved to proclaim it. I had been to many churches where the music was quite polished and professional, but it lacked the sounds coming from souls who knew that they had been set free. The difference was quite evident.

    An actor was asked to recite the 23rd Psalm. His recitation was fluent and exceptional, with perfect intonation and diction—a flawless performance. A godly pastor was asked to recite the same Psalm. It was done from the heart and the difference was profound. One man knew the Psalm but the other man knew the Shepherd. So also, those who truly know the Shepherd are going to sing much differently than those who know Him not.


"One man knew the Psalm but the other man knew the Shepherd"

   How can someone sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs if he is unsaved, unspiritual, having not the Spirit? On the other hand, how can a spiritual believer delight in the "song of fools" (Eccl. 7:5)? The two are incompatible. The new song belongs with a new creature in Christ. The old songs belong to our past life to which we have died ("old things have passed away"). "For ye died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God....Christ who is your LIFE" (Col. 3:3-4).


    There is a massive movement in our day to bring the music of fools (CCM) into the house of God, including the jungle pulsing drumbeat and everything else connected with such sensual and fleshly musical styles. Worshipful, spiritual, reverent, God-centered, Biblically based music is becoming more and more rare in the churches. Instead of honoring the Rock of Ages, we have entered the age of Christian rock.


    Peter Masters, Pastor of the Metropolitan Temple in London (where Charles Spurgeon used to preach), has shared similar concerns:


"The 'culture' of the house of God must be joyful, yet at the same time honour the deeply reverent ethos of biblical worship"

   A ruling principle in Christian worship for generations was the need to distinguish between sacred and secular, or between sacred and profane, or spiritual and worldly. The 'culture' of the house of God must be joyful, yet at the same time honour the deeply reverent ethos of biblical worship. Until recently, evangelicals believed that the church and the world represented opposing standards and lifestyles and tastes, and so most of the world's popular jollities were treated with great suspicion. Spiritual worship was never to be confused or mixed with, or even tainted by, the debased end of the popular entertainment spectrum, because one belonged to the realm of sacred things, and the other to the realm of secular and profane things. All were convinced that Almighty God would be offended, and realized that lost sinners could not be called out of the world by a church that had adopted its lifestyle and entertainment values.

    It was believed by virtually every serious Christian that to employ in worship something that was obviously associated with (or had arisen from) an alternative culture of free sex, godlessness, drugs, and emotional orgies would be worse than inappropriate - it would be sinful.


"They therefore disclaimed the help of a fleshly world and its idiom, relying instead on the power of God, and so they had spiritual power in their worship, not the carnal 'power' of entertainment-emotionalism"

    Christians of the recent past saw that two different worlds and kingdoms stood in stark contrast to one another, the churches being the upholders of God's sovereignty, and holiness. They represented the Holy and the High. They therefore disclaimed the help of a fleshly world and its idiom, relying instead on the power of God, and so they had spiritual power in their worship, not the carnal 'power' of entertainment-emotionalism.

    As if to test the convictions of believers, the hippie and worldly Christian movements came into being, and initially, most conservative evangelicals were appalled. Why are they not all still appalled? Quickly, the new trends were picked up by leaders of youth groups, shallow churches, and certain international evangelists who had come to put earthly appeal before the standards of the Lord.


Called Out of the World

   The father of the faithful, Abraham, was called to come out of the culture of a pagan world, and live life in an altogether distinctive way for the Lord. The children of Israel in the wilderness were severely judged for wanting to go back to the foodstuffs of Egypt, even though these were not intrinsically sinful, because God had provided something special for them. The Lord was teaching them to be a distinctive people. Under the law of Moses the people were taught in many ways to distinguish between holy and unholy, and between clean and unclean, even if it meant the forbidding of things not inherently evil, in order to drill into them the law of distinction and separation. New Testament Christians have traditionally believed (as Paul said) that these 'things were written for our learning'.


"There must be a marked distinction between sacred and secular"

   Whether we consult the Old or the New Testament, purity and separation are ever to be maintained in worship. There must be a marked distinction between sacred and secular. The New Testament repeatedly commands us to hold ourselves apart from worldly activities which exalt or enshrine sinful acts and lifestyles. This is a tale of two kingdoms. 'Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world,' says John. Wherever this world's culture distinctively serves and represents fleshly living, it is to be rejected by believers. Historic, mainstream evangelicalism has always taken this very seriously. Today, pastors and leaders of inferior spiritual substance are wrecking the worship of these churches, and selling them into a progressive worldliness from which they will probably never recover. This is the tragedy of the hour. What is the point of preaching or contending for sound doctrine, if the church's practice has submitted to the world and become offensive to God? What is the point of correcting the sails if the boat is irreparably holed beneath the water line?

    Ministers may continue to preach sound doctrine in the midst of carnal noise - but they will only be serving Satan's purpose by calming and reassuring the faithful, while corruption gains total control. Many churches which have gone down this road in recent years have already become markedly shallow, frothy and indifferent to biblical standards. They have turned their Father's house into a den of entertainers. The writer has many testimonies to this effect, and has seen it in some very large churches in the USA. There, numbers have sometimes increased, but faithfulness and spirituality have plummeted. This is the future for those who defect to the contemporary worship scene. To go this way, therefore, is to be guilty both of great foolishness, and spiritual disobedience. We must stand clear - not on the grounds of taste, but on the grounds of sin.


"There, numbers have sometimes increased, but faithfulness and spirituality have plummeted"

   When it comes to music standards and anything else, may we not allow the world to squeeze us into its ungodly mold (Rom. 12:2). May we delight in singing the song of a soul set free!


He put a wonderful song in my mouth,
Of worship and praise to our God!
Many shall see it and fear and believe,
And shall put all their trust in the LORD

(From a song based on Psalm 40)

   The problem with using rock music in the church is twofold: 1) What you win them with, you win them to; 2) What you win them with, you'll have to keep them with.

    The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Planning A Sunday School Curriculum

prepared by Evangeline Geroy

Need: Committed and Faithful Leaders


Assuming that your Sunday School Department is departmentalized into 3 divisions: The Children, Youth, and Adults.


Here are some points to consider in planning your long-range teaching ministry.


  • Determine to teach the whole Bible.
  • Decide how long your Through the Bible Plan will be carried through as a whole and by division.
  • For any department to use typical lessons, decide on the most needful and important topic (even if you don’t have the materials).
  • Check the materials you have in hand.
  • Look (buy or write) the lessons you don’t have. Preparation and writing of materials may be done gradually as you need them.
  • Designate a person who will commit to prepare, monitor and keep materials.
  • Challenge teachers to study and make own lessons.
  • Remember, this is a difficult but very rewarding endeavor.

Newsletter DECEMBER 2011


December 2011
     As the year ends and many of our countrymen are in great distress, we still believe in the goodness of our Lord.

     Christmas season gave us opportunities of sharing the love of God to different groups of people.  God, who ‘spared not His own Son’ in order to redeem us from sin is the best gift we received and the best we can give.

     In spite of the busy work schedules of our professionals and the unpredictable weather, they were able to hold special Christmas programs in our eight (8) Bible Club Centers.  Children had enjoyed games; food and clothes were given while presenting again the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ.

      The yearly Christmas musical was presented on the 18th.

      The Patch Club party was on the 11th at the Salamat Residence.  The children had the privilege of sharing gifts—gifts for the workers in Kawit Medellin: Mrs. Belinda Rosales and Ptr. Roldan Bulotano.

     The Lord also gave us the opportunity to share His blessings to the tricycle drivers in Labogon area.  About 30 of them came for breakfast on the 23rd.  The gospel was shared through the tracts.

     Six of us represented GBCMandaue at the relief repacking center  for the ‘Sendong’ (Washi) flood victims at the nearby ABS-CBN compound.

     November highlighted the Cebu Fellowship of Churches Thanksgiving Day at GBC in Cebu City.  A good number of delegation from Mandaue joined the celebration.

     October was our Church Anniversary Month.  It was held on the 16th with the yearly Men’s Chorus Presentation.  Dr. Antolin Zamar graced the occasion as guest speaker.  The Patch Club Kids presented a musical “Patch the Pirate Goes to the Jungle” which marked the 10th year of our Patch Club ministry.

      Eight teenage boys and girls joined the 6th Cebu Youth Conference held at Q-Park in Compostela, Cebu.  We are much blessed to think that the Lord has given us the opportunity to see the fruits of our labor.

     Your prayers had been a valuable support as our family continue to lead in the ministry in Mandaue City.

Music for Children

    Children love music. A happy child is a singing child who sings and hums as he works or plays. When my wife and I sang in a choral group, one of the things that impressed us was that the singing captivated the attention of four and five year olds for an hour and a half. Music ministers to all age levels in a way that preaching and teaching can never do.

    The music that you and your children sing and listen to is more important than you may realize. The songs that we sing and listen to permanently shape our understanding of who God is and what the Christian life is all about. The songs that children learn are often remembered the rest of their lives. For that reason it is important that children have not only children's songs but that they also learn songs that they will sing when they are adults. Children need children's songs. However, if we give our children only children's things that are apropriate for their age, we are training them to be children when they grow up. That is a mistake that is being made today and we are seeing the results in many college age young people. Many do not know how to be mature adults.

    It is important for children to learn hymns and other Godly songs that they will sing when they become adults . Hymns have a wealth of spiritual truths in them. A hymn with four or five verses will often have 30 to 40 spiritual truths expressed in it in comparison with praise and worship choruses which usually have only a few spiritual truths. Singing only choruses is like eating only french fries. Make sure you have a meal to go with your "fries". Don't neglect the goldmine of teaching and worship for you and your children in hymns. Children love to listen to well-sung hymns.

    The following is significant for anyone who is involved in training children in the ways of the Lord. In Psalms 44:11,12 it says, "Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood: That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth-, that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace." The result of ridding ourselves of ungodly influences is that our sons will be mature, and grown up in their youth, and that our daughters will be stable, mature, and refined. They will be pillars - able to stand on their own and providing support. A problem today is that young men are not grown up in their youth. One juvenile court judge said that girls used to be the stablizing influence even though the guys were doing things they shouldn't. However, today girls are no longer a stabilizing influence. They are involved in as bad or worse things than the guys. The sad thing is that many young people in the church are not much different than ungodly young people.

    Music plays a more important part in the problem and in the solution than I realized. As I looked at the context of Psalms 144, I noticed that verse 11 "Rid me..." was also given before that in verses seven and eight. In between these verses on ridding ourselves of ungodly influences is verse nine which says, "I will sing a new song unto Thee, 0 God; upon a psaltry and an instrument of ten strings I will sing praises unto Thee." Of all the places in the Bible about singing a new song, this is the only one that contrasts it with what it is not, and gives the blessing of singing a new song.

    A new song is not one from strange children - the ungodly. Nor is it vain words or falsehood. Songs borrowed from the ungodly do not result in mature young people. The blessing of singing only a new ( a decidedly Godly) song and ridding ourselves of ungodly influences is young people who are mature and who are prepared to make an impact for God's Kingdom. They also stand out in sharp contrast to society around them because of their uprightness. One of the characteristics of those who have rid themselves of music with a backbeat is bright eyes. This is especially noticeable in children and young people. Music with a backbeat dulls the eyes.


    We encourage you to raise the standard and provide decidedly Godly music for your family - music that is without question Godly music. Earthly entertainment is for a moment, eternity is forever.

In A Time Like This

by Bro. Joseph Gimang
originally  published at www.gbcmandaue.com
September 25, 2010

The Sunday after Pastor Geroy’s stroke was a day of trust and faith among the members of Grace Baptist Church (GBC) of Mandaue (Cebu) as well as many other Christians as everyone came together in prayer, thanksgiving and petition to God for his healing. We are sharing with you an excerpt from the sermon delivered at GBC Mandaue on 19 September 2010.

   A week before the stroke, during Wednesday Prayer Meeting, Pastor Geroy enumerated the trials that many members and workers of Grace Baptist Church (GBC) of Mandaue experienced. In August and September 2010, several hardships occurred among us namely, appendicitis, amoeba, dengue fevers, and the death of a love one. I was uncomfortable when on last Sunday’s sermon, he said, “This could be my last sermon…. God is directing our lives in whatever way that pleases Him.”

   Three days later, we received the news that Pastor suffered a mild stroke in Bukidnon. He only finished two days of his 4-day modular sessions on Church Administration to pastors. He is the seventh victim of the seven calamities within seven weeks at GBC Mandaue.
   Is God angry with us? What is He trying to accomplish in all these so-called calamities?
   In John 9:1-4, John told the story of a man born blind whom the Lord Jesus healed. Here, we point out reasons why God allows undesirable things to happen. 
1As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth. 2And his disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" (His disciples have the notion that suffering is a punishment of sin. And it’s true. God does send suffering as punishment for our sin but not in this case.)3Jesus answered, "It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him. (In other words, this happened so that God’s glory might be demonstrated. Then, he kept on teaching them.) 4We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work.

   So, God allows hardships to happen 1) as punishment for sin, 2) as demonstration of His glory or 3) to teach His people.

   How should GBC Mandaue view these circumstances?

   Let’s compare our church with the church in Jerusalem in Acts 12. The believers in Jerusalem were starting a church. We too are starting a church in Mandaue City. Their ministry was expanding to the Gentiles. Our church is also expanding through many ministries and outreaches in different parts of Cebu Province. The Jerusalem Church experienced calamities of famine and persecution. We are experiencing calamities of sickness and accidents. King Herod killed James the brother of John with a sword. Many of us got sick while some suffered the death of love one. Peter, the leader of Jerusalem Church, was imprisoned. Pastor Geroy, our leader is in the hospital. What a parallel situation!
   How did the Jerusalem Church respond? Verse 5: So, Peter was kept in prison, but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church. The divine answer came. An angel of the Lord rescued Peter from prison. Peter then came to the house-church where many are gathering and praying. When he knocked at the door, a servant girl came to answer. She recognized his voice and in her joy did not open the gate but ran to where the believers are and reported that Peter was standing outside. But the believers said, "You are out of your mind." They did not believe.  Some suggested, "It is his angel!" Peter continued knocking, and when they opened, they saw him and were amazed.

   How is our church responding? Upon hearing the news, text messages are streaming asking everyone to pray. Last Wednesday, we prayed like never before. With tears flowing from our eyes, earnest prayers were offered for Pastor Geroy’s safety and recovery. This spirit continued all throughout the week in our homes, our schools and in our offices. We did what we needed to do – we prayed.
   Sometimes, when things like this happen, we ask God, “Why?” Yet we don’t need to understand and know everything in order to trust Him. (Proverbs 3:5-6). God knows what He is doing and He is in complete control of everything (Psalm 46:10). In times like this what we need to do is simply pray, believe and be amazed.
This is bright side of the story. After Peter escaped, King Herod punished the guards (12:19). Eventually, God also punished King Herod (12:20-23). On the side of the believers, because of the persecution “the word of God increased and multiplied.” (verse 24) Isn’t this an example of how God turned calamities into blessings?

   I am wondering why Pastor Geroy suffered stroke during his teaching ministry and not during his stay with his family. Was it coincidence or divine providence? The incident resulted to a lot of impact among our church people and in many Christians outside Cebu, all for God’s glory. It is more inspiring to see a mentor getting inflicted during ministry than during a vacation. It’s an avenue to learn not only from his teachings but also from his life.

   We too as a church are witnesses that we have grown spiritually stronger during this depressing moment. We have also shown the world how believers love and pray for each other. God uses calamities to bring out the best in His children.

   So, why Pastor Geroy? Just how many people knew and prayed when some of our members were sick? Many, but not as many as when people heard that Pastor Geroy is in the hospital. How many people rejoiced when our sick brethren got out of the hospital? Many but not as many as when Pastor will recover. God chose a faithful and popular servant to suffer so that many will know and marvel at His grace and might. Because of his illness, many people have started to pray not just for Pastor but also for GBC Mandaue and for the ministry in Cebu. It’s all about God’s renown. 

   God allowed these circumstances to happen so that His glory will be demonstrated in our churches and in our country. God also wants to teach us. We are positive that Pastor will recover as soon as possible. We are looking forward to see him stand again in the pulpit preaching, teaching and praying, while we sit listening, smiling and remembering that things have returned to the way they were as if nothing has happened. On that day, we will be more amazed on the ways and works of God and conclude that in times like this, God is simply demonstrating His glory and grace.

May this message be a blessing to everyone!
   Nine days after the stroke, Pastor Geroy’s appetite and strength have greatly improved. He is learning to sit and stand. His blood pressure is also under control. Visits and testimonies from believers on how God is working in their lives, families and churches have been encouraging. We thank our family and friends for their continued prayers for his speedy recovery. May God be praised!
