A pessoa errada - Luis Fernando Veríssimo


Pensando bem, em tudo o que a gente vê, e vivencia, e ouve e pensa, não existe uma pessoa certa pra gente.

Existe uma pessoa, que se você for parar pra pensar, é na verdade, a pessoa errada.

Porque a pessoa certa faz tudo certinho: chega na hora certa, fala as coisas certas, faz as coisas certas.

Mas nem sempre precisamos das coisas certas. Aí é a hora de procurar a pessoa errada.

A pessoa errada te faz perder a cabeça, fazer loucuras, perder a hora, morrer de amor.

A pessoa errada vai ficar um dia sem te procurar, que é para na hora que vocês se encontrarem a entrega seja muito mais verdadeira.

A pessoa errada, é na verdade, aquilo que a gente chama de pessoa certa.

Essa pessoa vai te fazer chorar, mas uma hora depois vai estar enxugando suas lagrimas, essa pessoa vai tirar seu sono, mas vai te dar em troca uma inesquecível noite de amor.

Essa pessoa pode não estar 100% do tempo ao seu lado, mas vai estar toda a vida esperando você.

A pessoa errada tem que aparecer para todo mundo, porque a vida não é certa, nada aqui é certo.

O certo mesmo é que temos que viver cada momento, cada segundo amando, sorrindo, chorando, pensando, agindo, querendo e conseguindo.

Só assim, é possível chegar aquele momento do dia em que a gente diz: "Graças a Deus, deu tudo certo!", quando na verdade, tudo o que Ele quer, é que a gente encontre a pessoa errada, Para que as coisas comecem a realmente funcionar direito prá gente.

Nossa missão: Compreender o universo de cada ser humano, respeitar as diferenças, brindar as descobertas, buscar a evolução.

Áudio: Eu pregando no culto de jovens


Dia 8 de Agosto de 2008, tive o privilégio de pregar no culto de jovens da minha igreja, a Sexta Jovem. Preguei em Daniel capítulo 3, na história dos amigos de Daniel na fornalha ardente. Fiz um paralelo com os testemunhos de mártires do livro Jesus Freaks por DC Talk.

O título que dei à essa mensagem foi: 'Como dizer não aos "ídolos" desse mundo?'. Analizando as atitudes dos amigos de Daniel diante da escolha de negar a fé deles ou morrer, aprendemos 3 lições para estarmos prontos pra dizer não aos "ídolos" desse mundo:

1) Conheça a Palavra de Deus
2) Abra mão dos seus direitos
3) Tenha fé no Deus que é, independente do que Ele pode fazer

Ouça o áudio da pregação completa abaixo:



Deus abençoe você!

Thiago e Pôni - Ministério CEIFA


Thiago e Pôni são missionários do Ministério CEIFA da JOCUM. Eu tive o privilégio de conhecê-los em Junho desse ano, quando eles deram um workshop de Teatro em nossa igreja, nos ajudando a iniciar o Ministério Faces. E mais do que somente ensinar Pantomima, eles nos ensinaram, com seu testemunho de vida, a sermos cada dia mais parecidos com Jesus. Aprendi a admirá-los e amá-los no pouco tempo que passamos juntos! Casal DEZ!

Agora eles estão levando as Boas Novas de salvação à vários países na Ásia.
Abaixo está um vídeo que mostra um pouco do trabalho que está sendo desenvolvido.

Orem por esse casal!

Vila do Louvor


Nesse fim-de-semana que passou um grupo de louvor da JOCUM (Jovens com uma missão) estava tocando na minha igreja. E depois, conversando com eles descobri que eles trabalham em tempo integral como missionários de louvor: fazendo produção de cds, compondo, estudando música, treinando grupos de louvor nas igrejas para serem verdadeiros adoradores, etc.

A galera é gente boa pra caramba e super compromissados com Deus. Um dos objetivos deles têm sido trazer de volta ao Brasil o ritmo/som brasileiro no louvor e adoração, e tirar um pouco a influência americana de rock e tal. Eles pensam que Deus deu pra cada cultura um jeito singular de adorá-Lo e isso deve ser mantido. Mas eles tocam de tudo.

O Vila do Louvor tem cds gravados com parceria com o Vineyard music, já tenho no meu Ipod o CD deles, um som MPB cristão muito abençoado e bem brasileiro!

A base da JOCUM que eles estão fica em Piratininga, SP. Aqui vai o website: http://viladolouvor.org

J Moss - We Must praise



If I were a drummer, I would use my cymbal
Se eu fosse um baterista, eu usaria meu chimbal
If I were a writer, I would use a pencil
Se eu fosse um escritor, eu usaria meu lápis
I would use my voice, if I were a singer
Eu usaria minha voz, se eu fosse um cantor
No matter who or what we are, we must praise
Não importa quem ou o que somos, devemos adorar
If I was a doctor, I would use my research
Se eu fosse um médico, eu usaria minha pesquisa
A prolific dissertation, if I was a speaker
Uma dissertação prolífica, se eu fosse um preletor
I would use my hands, if I were a potter
Eu usaria minhas mãos, se eu fosse um oleiro
No matter who or what we are, we must praise
Não importa quem ou o que somos, devemos adorar

CHORUS
Let the people of God bless Him
Bendigam-no povo de Deus
Let it ring with love and truth
Entoando com amor e verdade
With our gifts we exalt Thee
Com nossos dons nós O exaltamos
Merciful, wonderful God
Misericordioso, maravilhoso Deus
We must praise
Devemos adorar

If I were an eagle, I would use my wings
Se eu fosse uma águia, eu usaria minhas asas
Since I'm a believer, I use everything
Como eu sou um crente, eu uso tudo
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord
Faça um barulho jubilante ao Senhor
All ye people
Todos os povos
No matter who or what we are, we must praise
Não importa quem ou o que somos, devemos adorar

CHORUS

Praise His Holy, Holy Name (X5)
Adore Seu Santo, Santo nome
With our gifts we exalt Thee
Com nossos dons nós O exaltamos

Nós te agradecemos pelo que Tens feito Deus
What You¹re doing God and what You're gonna do
Pelo que estais fazendo e vais fazer
No matter who or what we are, we must praise
Não importa quem ou o que somos, devemos adorar

Curso de liderança - Pr. Elias Dantas


O riso é garantido na aula do Pr. Elias Dantas. E não podia ser diferente, afinal de contas ele é da família Dantas! Talvez sejamos primos distantes, bem distantes...rs
Divertido e cheio de conteúdo o Pr. Elias Dantas tem nos ensinado muito sobre liderança cristã e quero compartilhar algumas anotações:
A NATUREZA DA TAREFA
  • A tarefa da liderança cristã, de acordo com Atos 1:1 é continuar a obra que Jesus começou. Quando Jesus foi ao céu haviam apenas 500 cristãos, a obra só tinha começado.
  • O líder cristão precisa liderar à partir do que ele é, ou seja, de dentro pra fora. Quem o líder é gera admiração, levando outros à seguí-lo.
  • É um privilégio participar da edificação do povo que Deus comprou com o sangue de Jesus. Não há nada mais sublime.
  • Ser líder do povo de Deus é ser servo. Se o caminho da salvação é estreito, o da liderança é mais estreito.

OS RECURSOS

1) A visão: sem visão o povo perece

  • A visão é evangelizar, uma igreja que não evangeliza fossiliza. A função da visão é dar o rumo.
  • Uma igreja missionária paga para fazerem missões. Mas a igreja missional entende que já fomos enviados e missão nada mais é que o cruzamento da fronteira entre igreja e não-igreja. Todo relacionamento fora da igreja é um campo missionário. Todos na igreja são enviados ao mundo. (João 20:21)
  • Enquanto existir incrédulos ali estará a nossa visão.
  • A melhor definição: "visão é o futuro preferível para o povo". É preciso perguntar: Onde queremos que a igreja esteja em 10 anos?
