Forever Friends

1 Corinthians 15:53-55 (NLT) For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies. Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die,   this Scripture will be fulfilled:  “Death is swallowed up in victory.   O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” I spent last evening in a youth service with grieving young people. The young girl killed in a horrible tragedy had touched many and her kindness rippled through the crowd as many shared of her character even at the tender age of 16. Their sobs racked my heart. Why God? The grief counselors from the local high school were there – all believers – they talked with some, embraced others tightly and prayed with those who requested it. I was moved by the Presence of God in the midst of such sorrow and heartache. Hugging her mother, I prayed peace and strength walking through this week into her new normal. I could

Benefits of Rapid Prototyping for Different Industries

By  Shalini M It requires a lot of hard work to run the business of prototyping and manufacturing. Apart from the hard work, it costs a lot of money and time to create prototypes of products. Therefore, you need to spend a lot of resources in order to get the job done based on the requirements. As far as rapid prototyping goes, product designers and manufacturers can make 3D prototypes that can be shown to the clients for approval. Also, this approach allows you to see how the final product will look like. This adds to the efficacy of the process and allows the making of a design that meets the needs of clients. Given below are some of the major benefits of RP for industries. Read on to know more. Detection of Flaws 3D models allow you to detect a lot of flaws that can't be detected using paper-based prototyping and 2D models.

Actually, this approach is quite simple. All you need to do is make prototypes, show them to customers and improve the prototype based on the feedback given by customers. Let's take a closer look at the benefits of RP and 3D printers. Read on. Many factors play their role as far as the demand for RP services is concerned. These services provide you with assistance so you can fix design flaws during the early stages of the product development. Many devices are used to boost the RP process and 3D printers are one of them. RP is used by a number of industry verticals, especially those verticals that are linked with the product design and development. One of the biggest player is the automotive industry. Different parts are made in the form of prototypes to see how they look,

8 Advantages of Rapid Prototyping for Designers and Engineers

By  Shalini M Rapid prototyping uses software programs in order to make physical objects through solid freeform fabrication (SFF). This process helps make a working model of the product in a short period of time. Then this model can be tested to ensure it works fine. After customer feedback, you can make changes to the features of the product. Let's discuss some of the advantages of rapid prototyping. Read on. Reduced Project Cost The main advantage of this technique is that it allows you to reduce the project cost and the associated risks. Typically, designers and engineers build one or more models in a series of steps. Each model is made based on the earlier performance of the model in order to fix the problems. And the product is prepared when the model meets all the requirements and is free of all faults. Rapid prototyping allows easy and the cost-effective making of the product model. Vast Application Today RP is used in different industries. Since it offers a lot

Tidak Ada yang Kebetulan

1 Samuel 9:1-10:16 Hidup itu misteri, tidak mudah ditebak. Namun satu hal yang pasti, Allah berkuasa memerintah dan menata segala sesuatu. Tidak ada kebetulan dalam hidup ini karena Allah bekerja dalam segala sesuatu. Kisah Saul yang diurapi oleh Samuel memberitahukan bahwa hidup ini tidak kebetulan. Kish, ayah Saul, kehilangan keledai-keledai betinanya. Ia kemudian menyuruh Saul mengajak seorang bujangnya untuk mencari keledai-keledai tersebut. Di tengah jalan, si bujang mempunyai ide untuk menanyakan kehilangan mereka itu kepada Samuel. Akhirnya, mereka bertemu dengan Samuel, lalu Samuel mengurapi Saul menjadi raja. Sebelum mengurapi Saul, Samuel menceritakan petunjuk Allah tentang siapa yang harus ia urapi. Ayat 15-18 jelas menunjukkan bahwa peristiwa kehilangan keledai dan perintah Kish kepada Saul untuk mencari keledainya bukanlah hal yang kebetulan. Allah bekerja dalam segala sesuatu untuk menggenapi rencana-Nya. Dan rencana Allah pasti mendatangkan kebaikan bagi umat-Nya. M

Tetap Jernih Melihat

1 Samuel 8:1-22 Tetap melihat dengan mata jernih itu gampang-gampang susah. Gampang, ketika kita punya niat dan konsistensi. Susah, ketika niat dan upaya kita untuk konsisten digoyahkan oleh rintangan yang kita alami. Seiring perjalanan waktu, Samuel menjadi tua. Ia digantikan oleh kedua anaknya, yakni Yoel dan Abia. Mereka menjadi hakim di Bersyeba. Namun sayang, keduanya tidak hidup seperti ayah mereka. Keduanya lebih senang mengejar laba, menerima suap, dan memutarbalikkan keadilan. Terhadap hal ini, bangsa Israel menjadi sangat kecewa. Oleh sebab itu, berkumpullah tua-tua Israel menghadap Samuel. Mereka meminta Samuel mengangkat raja atas mereka. Permintaan tersebut sangat mengesalkan hati Samuel. Ia kemudian berdoa kepada Allah untuk meminta petunjuk. Setelah itu, Samuel memberi pertimbangan-pertimbangan kepada bangsa Israel seandainya mereka mempunyai seorang raja (10-18). Situasi akan sangat berbeda dibanding jika mereka tetap hanya mempunyai hakim. Namun, mereka tetap mende

Jangan Ikut-ikutan!

1 Samuel 7:2-17 Ikut-ikutan secara dangkal tanpa berpikir logis dan kritis sering dilakukan manusia. Ia dengan mudahnya meniru apa yang ada di sekitarnya. Tanpa disadari, ia tidak tahu apa yang sedang terjadi dan sudah berjalan jauh keluar dari rel yang seharusnya. Lalu terjadilah kekacauan, baik di dalam diri sendiri maupun kehidupan bersama. Bangsa Israel juga pernah mengalami hal serupa. Mereka ikut-ikutan menyembah para allah bangsa lain. Akibatnya, Allah murka. Mereka dibiarkan terpukul kalah oleh bangsa Filistin. Dalam keterpurukan tersebut, mereka mengeluh kepada Allah (7:2) dan meminta pertolongan-Nya melalui Samuel. Menanggapi keluhan tersebut, Samuel mengajak umat berbalik kepada Allah, menjauhkan diri dari illah-illah lain dan beribadah hanya kepada Allah (7:3). Umat pun melakukan apa yang disampaikan Samuel. Mereka mengaku dosa di hadapan Allah, lalu Samuel berdoa untuk mereka. Kemudian, Ia menjawab doa mereka (7:9). Sebagai jawaban doa, bangsa Filistin terpukul kalah o

Mengundurkan Diri Dan Menepi

Baca:  Yohanes 6:1-15 "Karena Yesus tahu, bahwa mereka hendak datang dan hendak membawa Dia dengan paksa untuk menjadikan Dia raja, Ia menyingkir pula ke gunung, seorang diri." (Yohanes 6:15) Sebagian besar orang sangat menyukai ketenaran, popularitas, pujian, penghargaan dan penghormatan dari sesamanya. Saking hausnya akan hal-hal tersebut mereka rela menempuh segala cara demi mewujudkan apa yang diinginkan. Demi beroleh ketenaran atau popularitas ada yang pergi ke dukun atau paranormal, minta diberi 'susuk' atau penglaris, ada yang tega menikung atau menghancurkan teman/sahabat sendiri, ada pula yang rela mengorbankan harga dirinya. Kita tidak menyadari bahwa ketenaran atau popularitas meski sangat menggiurkan namun sekaligus juga dapat menghancurkan. Alkitab mencatat betapa populernya Kristus pada masa itu karena Ia melakukan perkara-perkara heran dan ajaib. Salah satunya seperti yang dikisahkan ini, yaitu hanya dengan lima roti jelai dan dua ikan Ia sanggup mem

Jangan Bangkitkan Murka Tuhan

Baca:  Yesaya 5:25-30 "Sebab itu bangkitlah murka TUHAN terhadap umat-Nya, diacungkan-Nya tangan-Nya terhadap mereka dan dipukul-Nya mereka; gunung-gunung akan gemetar, dan mayat-mayat mereka akan seperti kotoran di tengah jalan." (Yesaya 5:25) Selain berlimpah kasih setia, Tuhan yang kita sembah adalah Tuhan yang adil. Inilah sisi lain yang seringkali dengan sengaja diabaikan dan disepelekan oleh kebanyakan orang Kristen. Dalam kasih setia-Nya Tuhan menganugerahkan keselamatan dan pengampunan kepada setiap orang yang percaya kepada-Nya. Tetapi dalam keadilan-Nya Tuhan perlu sekali mendidik umat-Nya, dan salah satu bentuk didikan Tuhan adalah hajaran.  "...Dia menghajar kita untuk kebaikan kita, supaya kita beroleh bagian dalam kekudusan-Nya." (Ibrani 12:10).  Jadi Tuhan menghajar kita bukan untuk membinasakan, tetapi bertujuan untuk mengembalikan kita pada rancangan-Nya yang semula. Karena itu jangan sekali-kali kita membangkitkan murka Tuhan! Kata 'murka
