The Way Forward in Christ : Continued Progress

Now that we are alive in Christ we should respond to him by surrendering our lives to him. We live our lives

“with joy” (Col 1:11d)

knowing that Christ has already purchased us at the cost of his precious blood. And though we are destined for heaven, we still live in an evil world that tries to bring us down. Thus we need to have

“all endurance and patience” (Col 1:11c)

which comes as long as we cling to God.

Through our sufferings and trials we are being prepared to live with God in heaven. We are to
“live in a manner worthy of the Lord, so as to be fully pleasing” (Col 1:10a)
and this comes in growing in the knowledge of God and engaging ourselves in every good act of service as Christians. As long as we are grateful, joyful and endure patiently and strive to live for Christ, God himself will strengthen us with his power and might.

Let us unceasingly pray for one another and ourselves that we may be filled with the knowledge of his will. For the knowledge of his will is the root of all right conduct.

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
