Hi guys! :) How are you na? I know that we are all in the toughest season of this semester! :) “Hell Week” hehe! However, my Christian friends would refer to this week as Grace Week, and indeed it is true! :) hahaha! :) God has blessed me so much this week! :) and I know that you were too! :)
Gals and guys, I’m sharing to you what has God revealed to me yesterday. :) So here it goes..
The topic in the youth service in our local church these past four weeks is the trademark of being a Christian. We’ve been talking about what makes a Christian, a Christian.
Having a relationship with Jesus makes one a Christian. Thus, love, obedience and fruit follow.
Let’s talk about love first. (hehe what i’m sharing to you guys is what i’ve learned or what Jesus has revealed to me. it’s not exactly what was taught during the youth service, okay?)
Loving others as Jesus loves us is not easy. It means that we must be selfless, we must love others unconditionally and sacrificing for others.
Obedience is of course obeying God. And it is not easy because sometimes following God is illogical. (have you experienced it na ba, when God is telling you to do things that are very inconvenient?)
Lastly, having a relationship with Jesus is bearing fruit. Bearing fruit results to a changed life and making disciples.
So during those youth services, while listening to the pastor, I thought to myself that hey, it’s not that difficult, i can really do that. However, God challenged me yesterday. :) (OMG. Lord God, I really really thank you for these times when I can practice obeying you.) So yesterday, as I went home, I found out that my mother was not yet well. (she has tremendous cough, i think) Also, I already planned on working for my Econ 171 project last night. (if you knew me, I’m great at making and following schedules for myself. i believe that time is not gold, it’s diamond).Unfortunately, I was asked by my mother to accompany her to go to the hospital. (lol. i’m still struggling with having self-control when it comes to my mother) so i went with her, thinking that it would just take us a FEW HOURS. :) (few hours for me is like 3 or 4 hours. i didn’t bring a book or earphones) as we commuted to the hospital last night, i told God that are you giving me the opportunity to tell my mom how you have saved her? so i prayed to God na He’ll use this opportunity to tell mom about salvation. (it’s really awkward for me to do this things with my mom.) With God’s grace, i have told my mom how she was saved by Jesus Christ. as in. haha end up crying actually. :) not really cry, but tears fell from my eyes. hahaha. and ayon. i thought that that was the last time of the day that God will tell me to do something. but no. i was wrong. the God of the universe has something else great for me. at around 10pm in the evening (we were already 2 hours in the hospital) i was at the point of giving up and telling my mom that i have to go home. so i started going out of the emergency room when i heard God said, STAY. huhuhubels. so i stayed.(this is one of the illogical things that God asked me to do) and i thought that it would just take us an hour lol. as an economist, i was already computing for the opportunity cost of staying there instead of doing my project. i thought again that it was the last time God will ask me to do something else for my mom, i was wrong again. My mom asked me to buy a tissue. or look for one. i’ve searched afar and not found one. the only place where i can buy tissue is the mercury drugstore situated in front of the hospi, and it would take me to cross the long overpass just to get there. :( so i have nothing else to do but follow God and buy my mom a issue. :)
you know what, i realized something. that these things, obeying God, sacrificing sleep for my mother, these are all the results of the overflow of God’s love for me. The overflow will make these things easy to do. These are nothing compared to what Jesus has done on the cross. And my prayer is that I would grow more in love with God para mas may overflow. I pray that I would be a Christian not just in school but also in our house. :) hehehe. Also, I realized that I stayed with my mom in the hospi for just 6-7 hours. Compare that to the 12 hours of labor she has experienced for me :( huhubels. i love my mom so much, but I love God more. :) God thank you because you love me so much that I can love my mother this much! :))
