See What God Sees In You

Leave a comment

Last month, I bought a second-hand car. The car was a beauty. (Yes, I’m still a guy. As a little boy, my favorite toy was the matchbox.) I was curious why the owner was selling it—because it was just four years old. The leather seats still smelled nice. The paint was still shiny. The engine was still powerful. When I visited his home to pay for the car, I realized why. In the parking lot, he had newer, bigger, better cars. No wonder he was getting rid of his older car. To him, the car was garbage. But to me, the car was gold. It’s funny how one thing can be garbage to one person and gold to the other.

“God Chose Me”

Once upon a time, I felt like garbage too. That was how I saw myself. I was a man with an uncontrollable sin. I was so messed up I was ashamed that I was even alive. But Jesus looked at me and didn’t see the garbage. He only saw the gold. And He loved me so much, He bought me. He said, “No price is too high. Not cost too big. I want you.” He ended up paying with His life, shedding his blood. Friend, this is the Jesus whom we follow. This Good Friday, I invite you to see what Jesus sees in you. Find the gold that He insists is there in you. And receive His love anew this Holy Week.

May your dreams come true,

Palm Sunday

Leave a comment

Just attended Palm Sunday Mass this morning and this is my first time to celebrate it here in San Isidro Labrador Parish, Catalunan Grande davao city.

On Palm Sunday Christians celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, the week before his death and resurrection. For many Christian churches, Palm Sunday, often referred to as “Passion Sunday,” marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday.The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him by wavingpalm branches and covering his path with palm branches. Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus, he begins his journey to the cross.The biblical account of Palm Sunday can be found in Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:28-44; and John 12:12-19.
