Pastor Bong Gonzales
What an example to follow, a principle to apply and a Master to love!
Christ Jesus our Lord is being honored both in heaven and on earth not because He assert but because He deserves!
How many of us were willing to sacrifice everything just to get the best place in this world? How many of us will fight to death for anything that many will take from us!
But Jesus Christ demonstrated the opposite!
He willingly gave all that He has that no one did ever have - being God.
He willingly became whom many of us despised - being just a man.
He willingly took what many of us escapes or even fear - death.
He willingly accepted what many of us hates - shame.
He willingly submit what many of us avoid - obey.
Well my friends, this season, many still wonder who this Jesus called Christ is. Why it is hard to accept Him? Why many rejects Him? Oh, simply because no one could ever did what he had done!
To add to that, He did not do it for any other reason, than out of love to whom who send Him and out of love to them to whom He was sent for!
May we always remember that He is our Lord not because He insists, but because He is worth it!
May we learn to follow His step not because we want to be honored by men but just to deserve being called His servant!
May we always be willing to obey even to the most difficult times of our life knowing that the Christ has set an example for us!
They that honor Him, honor Him not just by mere words, but by following His steps!
God bless and lets honor The Christ the Son of the living God!
Till next time!
