And just like that, we’re now in March and the first quarter of the year is almost over. Though short, the month of February has been somewhat action-packed for me. I’ve learned a lot of things about myself once again, I’ve met a lot of new friends, been reconnected with an old friend, and seen an untimely death of an office colleague.
If there’s one thing that I want to be reminded of about my February, it’s ‘Life is Short’. With all the tensions happening in this country and in some other parts of the world, I am fully convinced that we are in the last days. I am now fully aware of the urgency of the Gospel and the importance of the work that Jesus has entrusted to His followers. I don’t want to sound pessimistic but I am convinced that this world is not going any better because God has meant to destroy it. Since I know now that the time is near, I now realized that my selfish desires and ambitions are nothing compared to the big task that is coming ahead so I have to be on guard and remain faithful. We know that no one knows the time and day of Jesus’ second coming but we must be ready because He will come in the most unexpected time and hour. So it would be better if Jesus will find me busy for His kingdom when He comes rather than sorry if He will find me idle. Or better yet, I should be ready and prepared to welcome Him with joy and excitement in my heart.
