Star Trek Into Darkness

Done watching Star Trek Into Darkness at Lucky China Mall. ws_Star_Trek_Into_Darkness_Poster_1920x1080

I love action movies but about space movie or what I call futuristic earth, nah its not my taste. But a friend of mine ask me to watch that movie and I said ok I will try it out.

After watching I felt glad. Its not that bad after all and I illuminate something and I want to share it to you guys. This scene has given me a great impact and a lot of insights and leadership principle to take home. If I had a pen and paper I would list it down. I believe in the saying Ink is better than Think. Our brain can think of a thousand ideas but you will also forget it in just a while. So better write it down before it flew away

1. We are called to do the right thing ( Mentoring Session)

Before becoming a good leader you will first undergo to following a Mentor. Everything he is teaching and instructing means a lot cause he knows what will be the consequence if you don’t follow him.

Being a leader we have the authority over people under us. We need to follow strictly the rules and regulation of your territory. You can command them because you are superior but be wise and be careful every decision you make will affect them. Always do the right thing and pleasing to God, He is the real Commander-in-Chief.

James 4:7 ESV 
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will
flee from you.

Good_bye

2. When someone says goodbye you give importance to what He is trying to say.

This was always a reminder to us because by human nature we are “Pasaway”. We don’t listen to what the mentors are trying to tell us but you came to realize it when its too late. Why wait for someone to say goodbye for you to learn. I’m telling you it wasn’t easy. Follow Now and Regret Never!

One of the famous last line of Jesus when He is on the cross that hits me a lot is the phrase “It is finished.” (John 19:30) Every time I do things that is not glorifying Him I feel condemn but I always go back to the cross because again
It is finished.

3. Sacrifice yourself for your people not people for yourself.

True leadership is being a servanthood. Serve them the way it should be and they will do it in return. Mold & push them to lead. Trust them like your family and try to develop their full potentials and trust them that they can do it. Encourage and Empower them.

One issue in leadership is to know how your people submit their selves under your authority. Check yourself and reflect how your leadership works.

John 15:13 ESV 
Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

Sir Abraham Lincoln has something to say about it…

We paid the movie house for P225.00 (P 175.00 for the movie and P 50.00 for snack)
But for the insights is cheap. Everyday is a Learning process. Everybody needs an improvement.

Am I Qualified to be a Disciple?

discipleship-c

There are time in my life that I stay in bed, walking alone the street, and just doing nothing I kind a question God “Do I qualify to be one of your Disciple?” I’m just an ordinary person with just an ordinary life. I’m not a teacher in profession and did not study theology subject back when I’m still at school.

You Qualify If you are an Ordinary Person

An ordinary person like you can change the world not because you are intelligent or good but God is good and full of wisdom. You don’t have to perform anything just let God use you mightily in His presence and ask the Holy Spirit for guidance and Protection. A living vessel that God can use to minister to people.

1 Corinthians 1:27-28 New Living Translation (NLT)
Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to 
shame those who think they are wise. And he choose things that are 
powerless to shame those who are powerful. God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to 
bring to nothing what the world considers important. 

God sometimes use foolish people to change the world. Like the 12 Apostles here are some of them like Peter, Andrew, James, John are Fishermen and Matthew is a Tax Collector, Simon is a Political Activist.

You Qualify If You Obey His Command even if it is Uncomfortable.

Sometimes it is easy to follow God’s instruction when it is favorable to ourselves or we can benefit from it but what if it would take your salary, or would take too much of your time or it would take your life would you consider doing it anyways?

Best example of being obedient is Jesus when he is going to wash the feet of His disciples, Imagine the Kings of Kings and the Lords or Lord would humble himself to wash the feet of an ordinary people. Do you think its is comfortable to Jesus?

John 13:6-8 NLT
When Jesus came to Simon Peter, Peter said to him, “Lord, are you 
going to wash my feet?”
Jesus replied, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.”
“No,” Peter protested, “you will never ever wash my feet!”
Jesus replied, “Unless I wash you, you won’t belong to me.”


You Qualify if you Believe that God’s Standard is far more better than the World’s Standard

Base on Worldly view yes you are not qualified to be a Minister or Disciple because of the sin you have done before up until now but God’s grace is sufficient and all you have to do is to accept Him as your personal Lord and savior. It is God who Qualifies you not because you are nice or good or among other person you are far better than him/her,but it is by the grace of God that you are qualified.

John 15:16 New Living Translation (NLT)
You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.
