Rejecting Isms and Idols

God has promised His people to have a future with hope if we are faithful to our covenant. But like the people during the time of Esther, we too sin and fall short of the glory of God.

They worshiped other pagan gods and in today’s world we too worship other gods viz: materialism, consumerism and so many “isms” which according to the plan of Satan is driving us away from the kingdom of God.

The family is under attack with abortions taking place. Satan does not want people to follow God’s commandments as he wants to:

  • Keep people away from God,
  • To keep people away from the church.
  • Shut the mouths of people who praise God.
  • Destroy family and faith in God.

In-spite of this turmoil we should acknowledge that God’s work is at hand. We need to flee to God in times of trouble as Queen Esther did.

Let us repent this lent and call upon our God : “Be mindful of us Lord, save us by your power-(Esther C 23c-25a) and help me who am alone and have no one but you Lord.” Amen.

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
