Morning by morning

[Morning By Morning - he wakens my ear to listen as those who are taught]

Romans 8: 2

Dear friends,

Good morning! Hey, we missed something back there, Paul; what did you say?

2For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death

What's this "law of the Spirit of life"?

I know what he means by the "law of sin and death." He means religion as this grinding slog where we try to get to heaven by following the ten commandments and their various elaborations. Paul took us aside for all of chapters 6 and 7 to deal with the mess sin makes of God's holy law, showing us that being determined to obey it all out of our own strength is just hopeless. But what is the law of the Spirit of life?

Earlier when we were listening to chapter 5, we heard him speak of the reign of grace, and this is much the same thing. Struggling to improve ourselves enough that we no longer covet and we discard every idol and we speak with pure speech and we revel in the rest of the sabbath and so on makes us look like this:
Careful! You're tilting!

Something has happened to Paul, something he shared with thousands of people through his teaching and witnessing and now has shared with more than a billion of us through his writing. He has welcomed Jesus as savior and Lord, and what that has produced is a whole new relationship with God and God's will. That produces a whole different kind of lifting. Like this:

At first I thought that "the law of Spirit and life" was just a bit of bad writing. Ok, so sometimes I'm not too bright. Now I'm seeing that Paul wants us to understand that life in the Spirit has its own order, its own law. Grace isn't chaotic; neither is grace self-indulgent. Life in the Spirit includes and even rejoices in moral strength and decent order. Those are huge gifts. How the Holy Spirit comes and helps us to live in His order, free from condemnation, is the great subject to which Paul now turns in this immensely conceived chapter.

Suprises in reading

This afternoon, after I did a lot of work, I came to computer and read statistics about visiting this blog. I can tell you, I was surprised how this blog turns international.
I found visitors from:

Holland (I don`t know the city)
Atlanta (I know bunch of people there)
Prague (Oh, I know many people there)
Dubai (I know one guy from there, but I would be suprised if it were him)
Buenos Aires (I don`t know anyone from there yet)
and one location based upon IP address, but it couldn`t locate that anywhere on earth. Who could that be?

Anyway, nice to see that you all read it. Thank you for the faithfullness.
May God bless you all.

summer has a huge impact

Hello you all,

today worship was somewhat special. We had a "huge" number of people in the church. We met at the number of 7 people. It was nice tough, but singing was little bit poor. Anyway I liked it.
All people that didn`t come were out of the room/ surprise :)
Darina went to Kosovo, Mirek, and Horsi didn`t come at all. I have no clue what happen, if they went out for a trip out of city or what, but they didn`t show up.

Anyway it is nice to know that we are all together, knowing that you are with us in the Spirit.

May God bless you, for we feel blessed. But we need prayers, Vitalij has a hard time at his work and he needs your prayer. We pray for Him.

In His name and service,

Darina for Kosovo.

Darina went down to south to see her friends, and siblings in Christ in Kosovo. Pray for her trip.

We miss Darina, she is a good example to the church, and is active part in Brno church. She prepares Ladies breakfasts on regular basis, help to prepare the Lord supper, etc.
When she is not here, the body of Christ in Brno is feeling crypled.

Pray for Kosovo, and pray for Brno church. We need your prayers.

Thank you in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Get it!

Get service

I think this is a good illustration. You shloud see it.

Slow July

Hello guys,

July was kind of slow in Brno. All the month it is so hot here that we are glad to be alive. It is nice to see that people stay healthy, and keep coming. The only exception to attendance is vacation time.

Today`s worship service was the one I was in charge of the preaching for the third time. Unfortunately I didn`t preach today, I prepared a prayer service. We prayed for the peace in our life, and in the world.

We prayed for:
czech scene political parties to be able to come to a conclusion after June`s election.
Israeli and Lebanon situation.
Kosova situation and negotiations over Kosova independence

I will be happy to hear from anyone.

Have an ice summer.

these words are awesome to me

Missions is not the ultimate goal o the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. When this age is over, and the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more. It is a temporary necessity. But worship abides forever.

Let the Nations Be Glad, John Piper

I`ve got this from Jon Owen blog, and he got it from I think it was Amazon.

Sorry for delay

To all of you faithful readers of the blog sorry for not updating this blog last week or so. It was for a simple reason- I were out of city and therefore I could write reports how is the church doing. So.

Why I wasn`t at the church you can read here

This weekend we host a visitor- US missionary in Latvia. It might be interesting to meet him and share, encourage,etc. I will keep you updated.

And I`ll write more about the Sunday church- on Sunday.

May God bless you.
In His name,

Sunday lesson for last day of April

On the last day of April I volunteered to preach. There is a bunch of thoughts I need to go through but just in case you wonder what will be a theme here is a link to get inspired.

Life is change

Wow, time goes so fast. Its already a Wednesday. I can`t believe time goes so fast.

I wanted to post a new article here on Sunday afternoon, but then I realized that whatever I write, it wouldn`t make much since, so I gave up. And here I am, half week later being surprised.

Last worship service was really nice, especially for the fact I could be there at the worship service too. You may know I work on some weekends. I am about to change it. My work contract is to expire at the and of the week, and I am glad for that. I would love to find a job where I don`t have to work on Sundays at all. I would like to do my best to start a Sunday school again. It would be cool.

As of looking for a new job- I have few options already:
Work as a freelance for T-Mobile as a sales manager, that might give me a lot of room in the timeframe of the day so I could accomplish what I hope for the church.

The other would be to work for one import-export company at a tax refunds office.
It might be well paid too. I`ll go to an interview tomorrow afternoon. Pray for me.

And finally I would love to focus as much as possible on teaching English and interpreting. It would be so cool.

As you see there is a lot things that change now. I hope God will bless the church so that all the change in my life can be for benefit of all the church.

Easter traditions in CZ

You may be familiar with that, but for those of you who don`t, here is a story.

In the CZ we do not do an Easter egg hunt as in the USA, instead we do what is called whipping girls. It came from an old pagan custom that believed that with an upcoming spring each girl should be whipped with a fresh offspring of a willow tree. This was supposed to be a blessing to each girl as believed. Nowadays we don`t believe it, but we still stick to an old tradition.

So today my brother and I went out to whip girls. And what a blessing it was to go out in the building where the church gathers. It was a wonderfull chance to meet neighbours in the building and chat a bit. I feel very blessed as we did so.

Lets pray this will bring some more fruits then just fun at the Easter.

Easter fire


Light the fire
in my soul,
fan the flame
make me whole

these are the lyrics of one song that desribes the desire to serve and to be closer to God the Father.
Yesterday I had a chance to go to a worhip service where this fire was lit as a reminder of the light in soul of every individual. It was something special, so easter like. I like it.

I had a chance to meet few friends and to talk to them for a bit, and it was a worship service where I didn`t have a duty.

May God bless your easter time as He blessed mine. Posted by Picasa

Prague Church

We went there on January 15th. It is a lovely place in the middle of the city. And the church there is lovely too. It is small in number, as as as our church, but it has a strong will to worship, serve a praise God. Pray for them as we do. And come to worship.
