Weekly Spiritual Digest: He Has Risen! (Happy Easter!)


20140420-134238.jpg

The Resurrection

Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb. Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it. His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint. Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember what I have told you.” The women ran quickly from the tomb. They were very frightened but also filled with great joy, and they rushed to give the disciples the angel’s message. And as they went, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they ran to him, grasped his feet, and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid! Go tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there.” (Matthew 28:1-10 NLT)

Jesus Appears to Thomas

One of the twelve disciples, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), was not with the others when Jesus came. They told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he replied, “I won’t believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side.” Eight days later the disciples were together again, and this time Thomas was with them. The doors were locked; but suddenly, as before, Jesus was standing among them. “Peace be with you,” he said. Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!” “My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed. Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.” (John 20:24-29 NLT)

Faith Brings Joy

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (Romans 5:8 NLT)

Lord’s Suffering Servant

But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. (Isaiah 53:5 NLT)

God, ruler over the world and universe, heard the cries of Jerusalem and brought them a savior his son Jesus Christ! It was then that he sacrificed himself for humanity in order to rise again (on the third day) and defeat death and hell itself–the greatest feat that no man has ever performed.

While the world may forget his glory, his story still lives on! And his spirit and his peace will live inside those who seek it!

Glory to God! And Glory to Jesus Christ for showing God’s love to us–and for permitting us to live life with no fear of death! For we will rise too and join him in his kingdom forever and ever.

ThrowBack Thursdays: The Lord’s Prayer (Boston Marathon Tribute)


Every Thursday I post a miscellaneous blog/article/review or an interview of an extraordinary individual.

This week’s Throwback Thursdays Edition: The Lord’s Prayer (Weekly Spiritual Digest: Forgive, for it is in The Lord’s Prayer)

20140417-130916.jpg

“Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come,
thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our tresspasses, as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.”

I wrote this Weekly Spiritual Digest, six days after the Boston Marathon Bombing which took place one year ago. And in my post I wrote this:

“Finding the right words or verse to reflect on what happened six days ago in Boston was difficult–knowing what I saw and what I experienced could not be consolidated into words. However it was not until I visited the memorial site, of where it all began, that I began to recite the Lord’s Prayer.”

My epiphany (from reciting the Lord’s Prayer) came when I pondered on the Lord’s Prayer and it’s call to forgive.

In righteous anger I asked myself and even to God Almighty, “How can I forgive anybody, let alone those two men, after what they have done to those innocent men, women and children?”

It was very hard for me to understand this concept. But once I asked myself this question, everything began to be clear:

“Why are you reciting The Lord’s Prayer, then?”

I remembered that I was reciting The Lord’s Prayer that day to deliver the world from evil; to have mercy on us; and for peace. And I realized that in order to receive those requests, (to deliver us from evil, to not lead us into temptation or for peace) I must forgive those who have trespassed against me; or the Father will not forgive me of my trespasses against Him.

Gandhi once said that, “If we want change, then we must be the change.” But now if we want peace, then we must be the peace.

WE MUST BE THE PEACE, IF WE WANT TO SEE PEACE

The Lords Prayer is perhaps the oldest prayer in the world and it took me several years to realize its true importance.

So this week, practice forgiveness of others, regardless of the circumstances. And more importantly be THE PEACE. If we want to see PEACE in this dark world, then let us forgive and practice peace for it is in The Lords Prayer.

My prayers and thoughts still goes out to the victims who were affected by this tragedy.

Prince in The City Show: Ukraine Crises and President Obama’s Second Term Agenda


Prince in the city

On each and every show, I don’t just provide you news in the City but current events around the world–and how they impact you and the world around you.

On this special segment, I had a full packed discussion on views and ideologies–not just on Foreign Affairs but on President Obama and his second term agenda. Contributing to this lively debate, are Stephen Norman and Nathan Roman (both hosts of their radio talk show “The Business Side of Sports”) and Lindsey Poole, media content manager of UR Business Network.

To start out, we first talked about Foreign Affairs. We talked about the latest developments of the Ukraine Crisis, and analyzed America’s role in the world today–while comparing its strength to Russia’s.

All of us were on the same side when it came to disapproving Putin’s ill-conceived actions behind annexing Crimea. But when we got into domestic affairs, and dived head first into President Obama’s second term agenda, things got really political! Apparently there are two sides to every coin!

In our discussion I asked my guests to grade the President’s current performance on three agenda items for America: Foreign Affairs, the Economy, and Health care. While half of my guests gave the President a solid B and the other half gave no comment or gave the President a grave Incomplete. It goes to show that not everyone will agree with you.

From our discussion you will not only learn interesting facts but interesting opinions–and how those opinions can shape a person’s outlook on life. But no matter what political affiliation you belong to, you have the right to voice your opinions–even if they are polarizing. Each side of the table presented great insight that you wouldn’t otherwise hear from your everyday news television network.

Overall, we can somewhat agree that the President is doing a “good” job in protecting the lives of Americans in the face of terrorism. But we can unanimously agree that he has a lot of work to do before he can restore economic prosperity in our country.

*FYI: In my talk I mentioned GDP to discuss Obama’s current performance on the economy—to see where we were and where we are now. For clarification the actual definition of GDP is “The monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country’s borders in a specific time period, though GDP is usually calculated on an annual basis. It includes all of private and public consumption, government outlays, investments and exports less imports that occur within a defined territory.”

Stephen Norman and Nathan Roman are hosts their very own radio show called, “The Business Side of Sports” where they discuss on what makes sports so profitable. Instead of talking about what’s going on in the playing field, they are more driven on what’s going on in the front office?

Thank you Stephen, Nathan, Lindsay for your opinions and great insight.
