We live on earth for a purpose. We have a mission to fulfill for the glory of God and our salvation.
That's the promise of Christ. We live to do good and find a deeper meaning to our existence, and 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 suffer, and many people are getting sick and dying.
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 seems spared once infected by the deadly unseen enemy.
A year has passed, and we seem to repeat our mistakes. It's like suffering continues until a lesson must have 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 of all of these? Is God in control?
One thing that Christ had sacrificed is his passion, death, and resurrection to save humanity from sin. He endured sufferings for us to understand our nature of living. And not to be cowardly or defeated by our demons and weaknesses.
If the world is doing its cleansing, we all suffer; either we survive or die. We're probably the first or the last in line. Eventually, our fate is that we die. Not our will, but His divine will.
Who will save us? What happens when we die?
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 will always have Divine guidance. Our salvation is to live each day with faith in our hearts. To follow and be guided, to suffer and survived, and to be crucified and be resurrected.
