Hilarious Brainstorming of Making the Bible Exciting

            Let's admit it. A lot of people are not that interested in reading and studying the Bible these days. It's already hard to share the Word to people and even harder when we sense that they are not interested in the things we are saying.
           So, how can we make the Bible more exciting to people?

           My favorite skit guys, Tommy and Eddie brainstorm with the famous Bible characters to answer this question. I had a good laugh and at the same time learned something. Check it out below.

      I definitely agree with the "boy with five loaves and two fish" and these are the things I learned from him:

1. The Bible is complete in itself. We can't add anything to it to make it more exciting. It has adventure, romance, action, drama, tragedy, comedy and practically every literary genre.
    2 Timothy 3:16-17
              "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."        

2. The Bible is alive and is never out of date.
     Hebrews 4:12
               "For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."

3. The Bible is powerful. It will accomplish its purpose.
    Isaiah 55:11
              "so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."

4. We can't add anything to it.
    Revelation 22:18-19
              "I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book."

5. The Bible is enough for us to believe.
      John 20:30-31
                 "Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and by believing you may have life in his name."

        Let's keep reading the world's best selling and most widely distributed book of all time: the Bible!

How to Unload Life's Baggage

          Let's admit it. We all have it. We have accumulated life's baggage since we were kids. No one goes through life without getting hurt and sometimes, how we deal with these pain becomes baggage that we carry around throughout our existence. And even though we know they are heavy to carry, we just don't know how to lose these dead weight.  
       The Skit Guys, Tommy and Eddie reminded me of how I unloaded mine. So, check it out below. 

          The bottom line is that we can only stop acquiring baggage once we find our worth in our relationship with Jesus Christ and the only way to unload life's baggage is to lift them to God. 

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 
and I will give you rest. 
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
 for I am gentle and humble in heart, 
and you will find rest for your souls. 
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:28-30

6 Android Apps Every Christian should have in their Phones

            Let's admit it, we rely so much on our phones today that we must have it on our reach all the time. They no longer just serve the purpose of being  communication tools but they do more than we could have ever imagined 10 years ago. Aside from the wireless freedom in communication it offers, smartphones have internet access which opens the doors to limitless ways on how we can use our phones in entertainment, education, leisure, health, work, accessibility and a lot more in the different android applications or apps.
          As Christians, how are we making use of this technology?
           I believe that everything that could help us in our walk with God including apps should be used. So, I listed here six free android applications that shows that faith and technology are hand-in-hand in keeping us closer to God.

1. Holy Bible (NIV) by Solvus Lab
             Every disciple should have a Bible app in their phones. I have been using this app for a year now and I like that it is very easy to navigate and it works offline. You can bookmark pages, highlight verses, save favorite Scriptures and share Scriptures through SMS (text message) and social media sites. Sad thing is, the NIV (New International Version) is no longer available in the app store. Other Bible versions of the app by the same developer are still available. But if you really want a NIV Bible in your phone, you could try other apps like New International Version by BestApps World or the NIV Bible by Naitech (both work offline).

2. LiveBible-free Bible by
            This is another Bible app that I use. I use it as a reference since I could download modern translations of the Bible through it and could be read offline. You can make notes, share verses through SMS and social media sites, highlight Scriptures and it provides a Bible Reading Plan.

3. Holy Bible Dictionary by movin'App
             It is a good and simple reference tool when you are studying the Bible. It has encyclopedia and dictionary entries and it totally works offline. You can also share entries through SMS and social media/email.

4. Prayer Popper by Compass & Harbor and PrayerMate by Andy Geers

             The two apps basically have the same functions so I placed them both in same slot. They both help in being on top of our prayers. The Prayer Popper features prayer list and it gives you a pop to remind you when it's time to pray.  You can also mark prayers as "answered" and schedule popping for prayer concerns daily or on a specific day of the week. PrayerMate almost have the same features with Prayer Popper except that it is more advanced, like categories, lists, etc. If you want it fast, easy and no hassles, go with Prayer Popper but if you prefer your prayer concerns to be organized, then go with PrayerMate.

5. Habitizer. Habit Organizer by Applied Systems Ltd.

This app is not really a Christian app but it can be used to develop Godly habits. The Habitizer helps you build new healthy habits and start keeping a high quality of life. It reminds you of your goal and monitors your progress. What's great about this, aside from getting a healthy lifestyle, is that you can  program it to help you develop Godly habits, like being consistent in prayer times, Bible reading, quiet times or devotionals.

6.  Jorte Calendar & Organizer by Jorte Inc.

                If you are really serious about your faith, then you're a busy disciple. Christians need an organizer to assist them to be on top of their priorities. Your phone should do that for you and remind you of your church activities, counselling sessions, Bible studies, discipling times, spend times, family times, evangelism, meetings, birthdays, etc. You can customize the look of your calendar. It can also import national holidays of your country to your calendar and  counts down to important events.

                 All of the apps are available at the Google playstore and there are more Christian apps there that could suit your taste. I hope the list helps you in being more faithful to God. Remember that technology is awesome but nothing beats the Bible.
