Faith is Victory over the World

God, our creator loves us and knows what is best for his children. He sent His only Son to die for us and His love is eternal.

Just as we obey our elders, we need to obey God’s commandments. What is this commandment and why is it so important?

1 John 4:21 says “Who so ever loves God must love his brother.”

We, who are called children of God, are His sons and daughters through the death of Jesus.

Isn’t it easy for us to claim that we love God while it is very difficult for us to love our brother who has hurt us, maligned us, and stabbed us in the back? Real love is in loving those who have hurt us, and being able to see them as our brothers and sisters. It’s time we learn this kind of love as this is what God wants us to do.

God wants us to love one another, and be witnesses in our own homes, schools and colleges.

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
