Opposing Legion

In the world today we face a number of trials and are always in a dilemma to choose between what is right and wrong. We read in the Gospel of Mark, chapter five, about the man possessed with an evil spirit. He had been tormented for many years that he lived in the tombs and was chained and violent.

The evil one is working hard to create turmoil and dissention among mankind. Though man is helpless we have a God who is all powerful and just like the possessed man who prostrated in front of Jesus and humbled himself we too need to encounter Jesus in our lives.

Only when we meet Jesus, shall we be able to bring about a change in our lives and start to Live Christ and see Christ in others-beginning with our families and in our workplaces.

As the man pleaded with Jesus to stay with him so that he could know Him better, we need to share Christ and proclaim his glory and miracles that He has worked in our lives.

Do you think the evil one is happy when we proclaim and share Christ with others? No, never! He will try to make life miserable and use people who are close to us to torment and confuse us.

Let us ask the Lord to be our help and strong fortress against the evil one and let us not fear the people of this world. Let us move faster to evangelise and give Christ to our brothers and sisters.

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
