In my previous post, I shared how we could try to live like Him, but do you know that everything in life has process? When we try to live like him, we will go through processes, for example, if you want to build a table from a log, you have to cut the log, shape it, nail it, and chisel it to make it like a table. Do you realize that we are like that log, He wanted us to be a beautiful table, so He put us through the processes like being nailed, saw, and chiseled. Is it an enjoyable process? Is it a short process? No, it’s long and painful processes, but at the end of the story, the table will be beautiful. It’s not impossible that we could live like Him.
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord – Acts 3:19 (New International Version)
Last Sunday, I went to church as usual but today was different. I was really blessed to meet a person who inspired me really much but the funny thing was, it’s not the pastor but the member of the church, a boy who looked like in his high school or college years. At first, because he was seated in front of me, I saw the boy only from his back and I said to myself, “He is stylish.” Because my fashion style was somewhat similar to him, street style with long denim shirt, jeans, slip ons, and a grey beanie. I was like thinking to myself why did he have to wear beanie inside a church, it’s not that cold or winter season, I couldn’t fathom why but I just let it slid away.
The Last Pamphlet – The Story of Father’s Love
I’ve been so blessed in many ways in my life, but this morning, I got a magnificent story from my pastor. I could say this story was a life-changing one, at least for me. The story is called “The Last Pamphlet”.
This story tells us that our life is not ours to decide; in terms of life and death. It’s our God’s decision.
