Shalom Aleichem

Last Sunday, I taught the members to greet one another with this greeting: 'Shalom Aleichem', and the response is: 'Aleichem shalom'. Just imagine when the Shalom of Jesus is with you!

When we think of the word 'Shalom', we think of the word 'peace'. To the world, the word 'peace' means the absence of conflict, wars etc. But when Jesus used the word in John 14:27, He didn't use the word 'peace'; He used the word 'shalom'. The meaning of the word 'shalom' encompasses everything. It means wholeness, prosperity, health, blessing ... you name it! It means much more than the absence of war or conflict.

So greeting one another with 'Shalom Aleichem'
The Jews when they went to the war knowing that Yahweh was with them, they always won! When the shalom of Yahweh is with you, you can expect and experience success in life, and also reigning in life.

Shalom Aleichem!

Helpless dog

Mildred and I were out buying something last night when we saw a dog lying helplessly on the road. It had probably ran over by a car. It was struggling to move out of the way but to no avail. Pity this poor dog. There are many stray dogs in Samarindah area; too many in fact.

It was rather late and hence, we just passed by it.
