The Old is Gone, the New Has Come

In her “past” life, that is, before she began to regularly read the Bible, 57-year-old grandmother Irene Daet shared that she not only was quick to anger but tended to keep grudges against those who cross her path.
“I am a regular churchgoer, but for some reason, I found it hard to understand the Gospel and our parish priest’s homilies then. I had always felt then that something was missing,” Nanay Irene said.
To fill this void in her heart, she endeavored to read God’s Word regularly and even joined Bible sharing sessions in her parish. “Reading and studying the Word of God led me to a deeper understanding of His Word and has given me a firmer grip on His promises,” she explained.
She added that she knows God’s promises are true and He is true to His promises. “Matthew 6:33 reminds us to concern ourselves with His Kingdom and He will provide what we need. We only need to follow His statutes first then the blessings come,” she furthered.
Indeed, Nanay Irene has been renewed by the power of God’s Word. Her old grumpy self has been replaced by a more patient, generous grandmother who is very sensitive to God’s Word and is committed to following God.
“I’m not perfect. I still get angry sometimes but these are few and far in between. And when it happens, it is as if God speaks to me to go after the person I had a spat with and make peace. My old self wouldn’t have cared for the other person, but now, by God’s grace, He continues to change me,” she said.

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

“It is a blessing to be able to support our local churches in need of Bibles and Bible study programs. It is our hope that they not only grow in terms of membership but also have the heart to extend spiritual help to others, just like how they have received help.”

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
