“I cannot say ‘Our’ if I only live for myself.
I cannot say ‘Father’ if I do not endeavor each day to act like his child.
I cannot say ‘Who art in Heaven’ if I am laying up no treasure there.
I cannot say ‘Hallowed be Thy name’ if I am not striving for holiness.
I cannot say ‘Thy Kingdom come’ if I am not doing all in my power to hasten that wonderful event.
I cannot say ‘Thy will be done’ if I am disobedient to his Word.
I cannot say ‘On earth as it is in Heaven’ if I’ll not serve Him here and now.
I cannot say ‘Give us this day our daily bread’ if I am dishonest or an under-the-counter shopper.
I cannot say ‘Forgive us our debts’ if I harbor a grudge against anyone.
I cannot say ‘Lead us not into temptation’ if I deliberatly place myself in its path.
I cannot say ‘Deliver us from evil’ if I do not put on the whole armor of God.
I cannot say ‘Thine is the kingdom’ if I do not give the King the loyalty due him as a faithful subject.
I cannot say ‘The power’ if I fear what men may do.
I cannot say ‘The glory’ if I’m seeking honor only for myself.
I cannot say ‘Forever’ if the horizon of my life is bounded completely by time.”

“Once saved, always saved. Hindi ibig sabihin na kapag nagkasala tayo ay mawawala na ang relasyon natin sa Kanya at hindi na tayo mapupunta sa langit kapag nabawian tayo ng buhay. He is a God of many chances, diba? We should pray for forgiveness, and do our best to avoid sinning again.”
