Hands to Serve, Heart to Love

We failed, we feel pain, we sinned but God treated us well in spite of our shortcomings. If it wasn’t for His great love, we will have no reason to celebrate the good life. The season of Christmas is a celebration everyone is looking forward to, especially the little children. Where they get excited to receive and open their gifts. The adults are also anxious what to give and how to give.


Everyone has reasons to celebrate no matter how devastated we were in the past few days from calamities and other unforeseen events. Thanks God, we are alive!


We are merely steward of God’s resources. We allow God to use us to be His instruments and therefore we should always have hands ready to serve. These past few days, people from all over used generosity and charity to open up the consciousness of people to serve and to stretch an extra mile to share and give. To heed to the call of God to serve, obedience is our gift to Him.


To truly serve is to allow God to work in us in a mysterious way. He allowed us to be broken to serve others. We need to be selfi sh, to sacrifi ce, to feel the pain and ‘die’ and be born again to a new person in order for us to be consoled with His grace and to be rewarded with more. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.”–2 Cor. 5:17


A heart that love. We are merely agents of God. We are here for a purpose. If you don’t know your purpose, examine yourself and ask God. It is a great feeling to live in peace and with peace in our hearts when we are fi lled with love. Romans 12:9 – “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil. Cling to what is good.”


My favorite quote in the Bible about love is in 1 Cor. 13:8—“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others; it is not self-seeking; it is not easily angered; it keeps no record of wrongs.


Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”


Need I say more? To all our avid readers and benefactors, Merry Christmas to one and all. May the baby Jesus in the manger bless us all in this season of Advent, may you continue to serve with love and love alone. I also look forward that all of us will have a fruitful New Year’s ahead. God bless you.
