Entering into the Sabbath Rest

As Christians our ultimate goal is to be in heaven and be one with our Father. In order to achieve this goal we need to proclaim the good news to our fellow brothers and sisters.

We proclaim our faith in Jesus because we were first evangelized by others who believed and received the good news. Faith means to follow and obey our Lord in every way and accept Jesus as our Saviour and Lord.

We grow in faith when:

  • We remain in awe of God and His mighty deeds,
  • Focus our hearts and gaze on our God
  • Accept His will and obey His commandments,
  • Place our trust in Him as He knows what is best for us.

These are some of the areas in which we as Christians need to grow and subsequently pass on the faith from generation to generation.

It is when we work in faith and evangelize; many wonders take place as God uses us as His instruments.

As a Couples for Christ, how do we respond? There is a call for a revival and greater outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is when we meet, live and share Christ; we can expect to enter into the eternal rest- for which we need to strive for.

About Frank Padilla

Founder of the Couples for Christ (CFC) community. Way back in 1981, CFC was started through the initiative of the Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon Community (LNP). In January 1981, LNP gathered 16 couples who went through a Life in the Spirit Seminar, with the intent of bringing them into LNP. But instead they were kept together for a few months after the program, until it was decided that a new group would be established to emphasize family life renewal. It would be an outreach of LNP. Frank and Gerry Padilla were among the 16 couples that became members in June of 1981 when CFC was born. Frank quickly emerged to be a top leader, and in 1985, he was already the Executive Director, running the day-to-day work of the whole community. In 1986 he went full-time for CFC and has been serving the community since, through two separate splits the community saw. Today he serves as the Servant General of CFC-FFL (Couples for Christ-Foundation for Family and Life). Know more about the founder at CFC-FFL
