“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now faith, hope, love, abide these three…”
Happy Monthsary! A common practice in the Filipino culture is the celebration of life in its beginning. It could be a birthday, a wedding anniversary, or any occasion one finds important to mark as a monthly reminder of the first year.
A beginning….that is continually celebrated, just as we celebrate our life in Christ Jesus. It can last a lifetime, or till the end of one’s faith in the life or occasion being memorialized. May that not be so!
“…but the greatest of these is love.”
I am celebrating with my Savior our 1st Monthsary in Dasmariñas. It is a temporary holding place He set up for me, and Stephen (a.k.a Rizty) whom He chose to detain until such time He deems perfect to re-unite us.
Today He takes my feet to Robinson’s Galeria, and I await the doors to open. The ” mallers”, “coolers”, and the true shoppers, walk into a Jollibee fast food outlet. World (as in world of Pinoys) famous for its “Chicken Joy”, it surprised me to see the people traffic wanting to be fed breakfast or brunch so early in the day. Lunch maybe? Or like me, waiting for the doors to open.
What is the purpose in every one’s heart as they sit and wait? What might they be attempting to remember, or perhaps forget?
What do you consider worth remembering while you live this life on earth (eretz)?
“I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor, it is the gift of God.”
Do you know where you are going when your transitory life is over?
“I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him.”
What the author of Ecclesiastes is reminding us is that it is God who does it, and is doing it everyday. Why? John 3:16
If you hear His voice, do not ignore Him because the Bible tells us,”For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” How? I’m glad you asked, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
He also tells us,”But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”
That’s right, when you receive the gift of salvation from God through Jesus Christ, you become a child of the King of Kings!!!
Who you are…
