Easter Sunday 2021: The Promised Land

Where will be our destination after this Covid-19 pandemic? Will there be a promised land awaiting for us just like God's  command for the people's exodus in ancient Egypt? Will our top leaders become like Moses who will make a great sacrifice and lead its people safely away from threats and destructions?

The hostility and uncertainty during this pandemic brought misery and deep suffering in our lives in the modern times. The powerful and influential even became stronger and the weak and poor became weaker and poorer.

That's our current reality. With billions of people suffering, we feel the oneness of humanity for a great plan of exodus. This time is to end the pains and suffering of the pandemic that's killing us.

Moses was able to protect its people under his leadership and they succeeded to have reach the promised land. Today, it's the time our leaders must follow the footstep of Moses and hear the voice of God to protect and fight for its people against the unseen enemy.

Religions of the world play a role to influence the nation's government and its leaders to save us and overcome this great challenge of our time. 

Our leader's shouldn't give up on us even until the end. We may never know how long are we going to fight and to remain steadfast, but one thing is certain, that God speaks to the leaders of our land amidst the noise and chaos.

We hope that our leaders listen to the voice of God that speaks to them; that they will accept the cross that's entrusted on them. We all have our personal crossess we carry, because God is testing our faith in the greatest challenge of our time. 

When we survive this pandemic, we'll all live in the promised land. That hopefully, our nation and leaders will be wiser. That we'll become stronger and great believer, and all our lives become better than ever.

Holy Week 2021: The Path to Salvation

We live on earth for a purpose. We have a mission to fulfill for the glory of God and for our salvation.

That's the promise of the Christ. We live to do good and find a deeper meaning to our existence; then we live in eternity when we die.

But how can we find a meaningful living amidst the threats and chaos in our times. With the Covid-19 pandemic, we all seem to sufffer and many people are getting sick and die.

Have they fulfilled their purpose? their mission? 

The rich and the poor; the young and the old, the weak and the strong are dying. No one seem spared once infected of the deadly unseen enemy.

A year has passed and we seem to repeat our mistake. It's like suffering continues until a lesson is learned. It's a cycle and we keep on experiencing a predictable turn of events. We seem to know what will happen next. We've been there, and we're just viewing a rewind and watching another season of the same events.

Are we in control with all of these? Is God in control?

One thing that the Christ had sacrificed is his passion, death and resurrection to save humanity from sin. He had endure the pains and sufferings for us to understand what life is about and not to be coward or defeated by our demons and weaknesses.

If the world is doing its cleansing, we all suffer; either we survive or we die. We're probably the first or the last in line. Eventually, our fate is that we'll all die; not  our will, but His divine will.

Who will save us? What happens when we die?

The Christ taught us that, He is the way, the truth and the life. When we listen and follow Him, he'll forever be in our hearts and minds and eternally. Our path to salvation is Divinely guided in His spirit of love and compassion. Our salvation is to live each day with faith in our hearts; to follow and be guided; to suffer and survived; and to be crusified and be resurrected.
