Remember this Mr. Bean episode? Ito yung episode kung saan gusto nya magbabad sa ilalim ng araw but nagend up na nangulimlim and the only light na lang na natitira is that light you see in the picture.
He followed that light. But the problem is, it’s moving from one place to another. Kung saan saan sya nakarating, ilang tao din ang naapektuhan nya and we don’t know kung saan sya nakarating because the episode ended in a way that he still keeps on following that light masatisfy lang yung desire nya.
I know that at this moment you know my point. We are living our lives just like Mr. Bean.
We keep on pursuing things and people in this world. At hindi tayo tumitigil hangga’t nasasatisfy pa tayo ng mga ‘to. But again, the problem with these things and people we are pursuing, they are not constant. They are all moving target. Yes, Moving target.
Money is a moving target. Success is a moving target.
That crush of yours or celebrity you keep on following, they are also moving target.
Pornography is a moving target. Addictions are moving target. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are all moving target.
Everything in this world. They are all moving target.
And you see, nakakapagod habulin ang isang bagay na tumatakbo din. Balikan mo yung oras na naglalaro kayo ng mga kaklase nyo sa school ground ng habulan at ikaw yung taya, di ba napagod ka rin? Dumating din sa point na tumigil ka sa kakahabol at tumakbo ka ulit pero tumigil ka pa rin. The moment na nasa’yo na, wala pa rin pala. Panandalian ka lang masasatisfy. Parang niloloko ka lang. I mean, ikaw yung mismong nangloloko sa sarili mo. Yep, I’ve experienced it. Many times.
Hinahabol ng isang pabago-bagong tao ang isang bagay o tao din na nagbabago. Wow. Non-sense.
So why not follow and give our lives to Someone constant and unchanging? Someone like the God of this Universe!
“Ang empty at shallow ng buhay pag walang God.”
-Coach Robert Gonzales
God is Immutable. Unchangeable. Constant. that was the topic last night sa College Service. It’s really comforting that we have a God like that! Hindi nagbabago.
Faithful even we remain faithless. Aww! :”)
His LIFE is unchanging. His CHARACTER is unchanging. His TRUTH is unchanging. His WAYS are unchanging. His PURPOSES are unchanging.
Yung parang nasa New York or Ayala ka na puro busy ang tao, lahat naglalakad, may kanya kanyang buhay tapos imagine God is just standing there at the center.
Ang sarap magpahinga, sumandal at kumapit sa ganitong klaseng God! I just wanna be with this kind of God. Forever.
2 groups of people:
*If you keep on pursuing things and people, mapapagod ka lang. Start fixing your eyes and rely on Jesus. Makikita mo, yung mga circumstances mo yung mapapagod sa’yo.
*Whatever you are facing right now, rest in this truth, na kahit pabago bago yung situation mo, may Jesus kang di nagbabago. And that is the Only Truth that matters.
I belong to these groups. And at the end, of the day its not about you. Everything is all about Him.
“Your relationship with God does not depend on You,
but to Your Unchanging God.”
