Integrate Your Faith
November 29, 2020 • Bong Baylon
People have the tendency to become lukewarm or to lose their faith altogether when they enter the workplace. Somehow, their focus and attention becomes totally devoted to their work. All types of work are legitimate and they can be platforms for us to glorify God. But how can we integrate our faith with our work? Once we learn this, we can become resilient disciples of Jesus Christ.
The Three Aspects of Faith

In the midst of various adversities and challenges, some give up on their faith, dropping out and becoming lukewarm. Some, however, continue to be resilient. They remain faithful and devoted as followers of Jesus Christ regardless of the circumstances. What makes the difference?
Faith and Faithfulness
November 8, 2020 • Bong Baylon
The Gospel changes our spiritual status, gives us hope for the future, and transforms us through the Holy Spirit. But believing these truths alone without practicing its implications each day does not help us become resilient. Both faith and faithfulness must come together to characterize our lives. But what does faithfulness mean?
Community of Faith
November 15, 2020 • Bong Baylon
In times of calamity, Filipinos come together to help each other. Unfortunately, in the church today, many are disengaging and disregarding their brothers and sisters in Christ in times of difficulty. They may have their reasons. But, sadly, these reasons cannot really justify their actions. It's important to understand the true nature of the church and our own place in it so that we can be resilient during times like these. We need to love our church again.
