God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this;

it is a gift from God. – Ephesians 2:8-9

Is there anyone who comes to mind that you know messed up his life big time and yet God continues to love and forgive him? We might be quick to say that the person is undeserving but in God’s eyes, that person is still considered a recipient of His love and forgiveness!

My friend, this is God’s amazing grace. It must be the most difficult concept in the Bible to understand yet the very heart of the Father for all of us!

This is grace – God’s unmerited favor. In it, you and I have been given a gift we didn’t earn. The Bible even says that we are saved by grace expressed by God’s forgiveness of our sins. His blessings to us even include peace and fulfillment in this life and, in the life to come, unencumbered fellowship with Him for all eternity.

Isn’t that something that amazes you? That is how much God loves us! That is His boundless grace – at the cross, His Son died for your sins and mine. So, we could be with Him forever.

Not only does this grace fill our relationship with God. This same boundless grace pouring out in us is the same grace that allows us to endure trials and sufferings. Amidst uncertainties and the seemingly never-ending pandemic, God’s abounding grace sustains.

You may have developed habits and lifestyles that make it hard for you to receive and extend grace especially during this pandemic. But the Bible gives us hope and reminds us that through God’s help, the impossible will be made possible. Remember, God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8).

The boundless grace of God is the good news you help us bring every time you give to CBN Asia and we cannot thank you enough for your partnership that brings hope and transformation to thousands upon thousands of people.

Because you heed the call to partner with our Family of Ministries, once messed up lives are now filled with the transforming love and boundless love of God. Thank you for helping us become witnesses of God’s grace through our live TV Special of The 700 Club Asia “Boundless Grace” that aired last August 23 to September 3, 2021, on GMA.

 By giving, you become a part of someone receiving the boundless grace from God. And as you continue to be an extension of God’s loving and helping hand through CBN Asia, may you receive God’s promises to those who faithfully give in His name. May His blessings overflow to you and to your family.

In His service,

PETER M. KAIRUZ

Lent in Time of COVID-19: How to Spend Meaningful Holy Week on Quarantine

Are you wondering how you can spend a meaningful Holy Week during this time of pandemic?

Over the years, most Filipinos observe Holy Week through various outdoor activities such as visiting a church, going to prayer mountains, or enjoying a relaxing vacation with loved ones. However, doing such things may seem out of the question now, as most are on quarantine to stay safe from COVID-19. 

Worry not, here are some ways to make your Lenten season still meaningful even when you’re stuck inside your household: 

1. Spend time with God.

The world needs your prayers, now more than ever.

Whether as an individual or as a family, this quarantine provides an opportunity to spend more time with God. Close that door, open the Bible and meditate on God’s Word.

Ask, “What is this crisis telling me? How can this pandemic lead me closer to God?”

Apart from praying for protection, provision, and healing of this nation, may your prayer times be aHannah Goodwyn puts it in her CBN article entitled Lent: What Is It Good For? The days of Lent are a time of meditation, fasting and repentance, and a time to wage war against desires that may be contrary to God’s Word. 

2. Spend time with family.

Spending quality time with your family is one of the many things you can do during the quarantine.

You may gather and watch shows that foster good family values, help find your identity in Christ, and help you strengthen your faith and believe in miracles again. You may also dig into child-friendly resources online so the youngsters can enjoy them, too! 

Now that everybody’s at home, it could be a perfect time for expressing love, restoring relationships, and creating meaningful conversations with your family members.

Extend help.

Aside from taking care of the family, God also calls His people to show compassion to their neighborsBut, how can you perform acts of charity in a time of social distancing? 

Good news! You can help protect the frontliners and help families who are severely affected by COVID-19 by donating to organizations, like Operation Blessing, which distributes much-needed protective gear and food packs to hospitals and communities. Also, avoiding hoarding suppliecould help lessen the plight of others. 

As the saying goes, every crisis is an opportunity. Being on a quarantine this Holy Week could be a good opportunity to spend time with God, spend time with your family, and extend help to your kababayans in need. May you have a safe and meaningful Holy Week.
