Matthew 7:24-25

Last year, in September, we experienced one of the most devastating flooding in my life. Almost everybody knows about it. It was the flooding brought about by typhoon Ondoy. For the first time, our barangay in Marikina City was flooded, at least 6 – 7 feet. Inside our apartment, the water rose to just below my waist line. Right before the waters stopped rising, I was already fearing the most, that we may have to evacuate. I was blessed that the floodwaters started receding before it became worse. But in many other parts of our city, it was a bleak situation. When I went to my mother-in-laws house, in another barangay after the waters receded, I was saddened to learned that their two-storey house was buried in over 25 feet of raging river water.

This generation might see the return of Jesus. Will we be ready? The pleasure of sin is such an illusion. It wraps you up in good feelings and before you know it, God can’t get through you anymore. You stop hearing him because you are immersed in the feelings it gives you. But Jesus does not stop reaching out. He is always with us. If you are deep in sin right now, when will you “…change your way and banish the very thought of doing wrong?” I must admit, the battle against sin is a tough one, but not an impossible undertaking. We need to have a conscious and intentional decision to stop sinning–even if you can’t yet. This is were we start, at the decision....
