Holy Gospel

Dear Children of God, how are you? How is the fasting season? Children, fasting is not to consume (eat) food and drink beverages (liquids) for a given period of time. Fasting is the key to heaven and the initiation of righteousness.

“Emmanuel; God is with us”

Dear Children of God, how are you? How is life at home and at school? Are you being obedient, faithful and brave? Are you helping out your parents, elder brothers and sisters, elderlies at house chorus as well? Do you obey them when they command you to behave and be disciplined at home and at Church? Children, it is a Christians behavior to obey your parents and elder ones. It also pleases God.

Children, when we make God happy and be pleased, He will be present in our lives. He will help us in our hardships, take all the pain and sorrow that happen in our lives. For example, if we have hard time in understanding our education, and pray to Him asking His help, He will make our mind bright and help us understand the course our teacher teach us. If we become very sick and ask His forgiveness, He will heal us. When we get hurt whilst our friends disappoint us, He comforts us and ease our pain.
