The people who yelled “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”“Hosanna in the highest heaven!” are the same set of people who indignantly yelled, “Crucify Him!”.
What’s our difference? NONE. For our haughty disobedience, hardened hearts, transgressions and unbelief have the same propensity as what happened 2,000 years ago.
But Jesus still managed to drink the cup of God’s wrath, and went through the whole ordeal of crushing, mocking, piercing, outright pain, long suffering and eventually death on the cross just to save us all from our sins.
The work is done, there at the cross. It is a finished work! Our good works will never add to what had been accomplished by Jesus. It’s all by His mercy and grace kaya nandito pa rin tayo ngayon.
One day we’ll all be held accountable of our sins when we face judgment. Baka naman pwedeng start mo na rin yung relationship mo with the Lord who has been knocking at your door na matagal nang panahon that you keep on ignoring along with all your plausible reasons.
Bakit nga ba lagi mo Siyang sinasantabi? Dahil busy ka? Dahil awkward mag-worship? Dahil masarap ang bawal? Dahil sa pride? Dahil feeling mo mas magaling ka sa Kanya? Na full of yourself ka kaya walang place si God? Na kayang-kaya mo na, hindi mo Siya kailangan? Or lalapit ka lang… kakapit ka lang pag iniwan ka na ng lahat at Siya na lang ang iyong masasandalan? Last resort?
Wala akong pinagkaiba sa iyo. I’ve been there, done that. But God saves! He is the Lord of Chances. So hindi pa huli! Huwag na sanang darating yung time na you’ll face Him and He will say, ” I never knew you!”.
Sana nga…everyday is a Holy Week…para maalala natin parati ang nangyaring pagpako kay Kristo sa krus. Kasi dahil sa pagmamahal Niya sa atin yun eh. Nakakalungkot lang,madalas…maaalala lang natin ito ano minsan? Tatlong beses? Apat na beses sa isang taon? Eh sa totoo lang pwedeng-pwede mo namang araw-araw ang debusyon.
