You may not seen this before, it's series of popular TV & Net TV commercial for years in US, from Apple Computer (now call Apple Inc), comparing Mac & Windows(PC). Now the idea has been re-made into now this is a Christian and Christ-Follower version. Enjoy!
Well it is absolutely the best thing to read more especially the bible.... but on the other hand, walk the talk and do what we've learned from the Word is more important. I like the part "Follow Christ the way I live my life..."
Well, Christian were called as they were original because they are seems to be "Christ Follower" or "People Who Live Like Christ". Just that the word "Christian" is becoming more like a noun, a group name or an organization rather than the actual reason they were called that way. Our life style should project Christ image.
I'd like to be called Christ-follower rather than Christian :- )
A month ago, someone stole my car. Today, a police officer called me and told me that my car was found. Praise the Lord. The time when I received the call, I was supposed to be in the class. Thank God that I did not have class today. Otherwise, I would not able to receive the call and would have to pay extra $300 for the car to put in police department’s store. (legal gangster)
During the first week, I had hope that my car would be found. However, week after week, information after information (cars were stolen and could not find, even if they were found, the parts would be gone), I lost my hope. Nevertheless, I did not lose my faith in God. I kept on praying to God to have His way. I prayed that my car would be found, but I did not have enough faith. I prayed to God “God, I know that if my car was not found, then I know You will give me another one, and I don’t have to worry about the money.” God is always faithful to those who have faith in Him. Thousand and million praises to God.
Faithful is he that called you, who also will do it.
Remember, about 2 months ago, I wrote that we need to learn to praise our God even bad things happen. Theorically, I have learned and understood. Practically, I am learning it now. Between few months I lost almost 50% of my student. And two weeks ago, my car was stolen at school. The moment that I noticed my car was stolen, I was really sad; however, I had peace in my heart. Honestly, I am really sad. I lost my students; I have barely enough to support my living expenses. Now, I lost my car. What can I do? I am not willing to use any extra money from my sister, besides my tuition fees. However, I did not ask God why all these happened. All I can do is to surrender myself to God and put all my trust on Him.
God is really good to me. He prepares everything before all these happen. First, He prepares my heart and faith to trust Him at this very moment. Second, He prepares a car for me. My friend, who lives in campus just bought a car a month ago, is not using her car during weekday. She allows me to use her car. Third, God lets one of my Saturday student stop learning because He knows that I am going to loose my car, and I do not have to worry about no transportation going to her place.
In addition, I have learned that I am really blessed by God comparing to others. At least, I still have money to pay for my tuition fees. My friend, he does not even have money to pay for his tuition fees. He needs to work for few semesters before he can go back to school. Not patting myself at my back. One of my students’ mothers told me that she was encouraged by my faith to God. God is always good.
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)
