There a lot of things to smile about. Especially after the 3 days International Thanksgiving of the Members of Church of God International or MCGI. Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon has thought the brethren 6 topics in the 3-day feast. Bro. Eli first reminded the brethren that before we offer thanksgiving to God, we should have forgiven all those who have wronged us as stated in Mat 5:23-24 (KJV).
Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee;
Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
This gives another reason for us to smile as brethren were eased from the burdens in their hearts. As the 3-day thanksgiving goes on, Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel thought brethren about the conscience and its importance to salvation. This again put a smile on the brethren’s face as they have learned the importance of why and how to keep the conscience blameless in front of God and men. Bro Eli and Bro Daniel ended the third day with the topic that gave a big big smile to everyone. It is about how a person understands the mysteries of the bible, and they even reveal the mystery of the blood of Christ. The brethren, although tired, still have their big smile in their faces because of the 3-day gift God has given them.
There are a lot of reasons to smile for in 2011. Thanks be to God for all His unspeakable gifts that put the smiles in our face and hearts!
