“To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2, NKJV)
Everything that is not complete is meaningless, unsatisfying. If there is a beginning, there must be an ending. Kapag namatay ba ang isang tao ay masasabing mission accomplished na? Kung ang buhay ay katulad lang ng sa isang insekto, wala nang magandang dahilan para ang tao ay mabuhay pa.
We believe that something grander is involved in the human life than a mere little creature’s life cycle. Man has a life history, a divinely implanted sense of purpose working through the ages, which nothing under the sun, but God alone can satisfy. It is incomplete if man will not do his part, according to God’s purpose in his life.
Sapagkat tayo ay nilalang ng Diyos sa Kanyang ikaluluwalhati upang iukol natin ang ating buhay sa pagawa ng mabuti.1 Peter 2:9 states that we are a chosen generation that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
It is my prayer that what God has begun (as He saved us), we will finish it until the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 1:6)
A Christ-Centered New Year,
