Istorbo

As he was setting out on a journey, a man ran up, knelt down before him, and asked him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” Mark 10:17

Istorbo! Ito yung mga taong bigla na lang andyan sa harap habang ikaw ay papunta sa importanteng lakad mo.

Di ba nila alam na nag-prepare ka para sa lakad mo na ito tapos bigla silang insert para mag-interrupt ng iyong walk. Hay naku!!?

Di ba nila alam na ang iyong lakad marahil ay usapang buhay o kamatayan and then tadaah!, right in your face sila. Hello!!?

Di ba nila alam na pinili mo pa ang iyong isusuot sa loob ng maraming oras, labas masok ang mga damit sa loob ng cabinet mo, upang maging presentable ka tapos hayan sila asking for insignificant help. Ano sila hilo?!!

Di ba nila alam na one-year in the making itong lakad mo, winalis mo ang ibang appointments upang makapunta ka sa very, oo very very, important event na yun tapos parang breaking news sa TV lilitaw sila bigla. Okay sa all right, ano?!!

Gaya nitong man who ran up, knelt down before him, and asked him. Istorbo sa lakad ni Lord. May journey si Lord – to save our souls. Tapos bigla na lang siyang andyan sa harap niya na parang nag-popropose ng marriage.  Nagtatakbo, naglumuhod at nagtanong pa. Sarap tirisin, ano?

Pero hindi tiris ang ginawa ni Lord. He gave time and love ( v.21) for this man. He allowed him to be with Him. He answered his question. He expounded more and further. Hindi siya istorbo ke Jesus.

At hinde rin tayo istorbo sa Kanya. He is keeping the solar system and the universe in their orbits pero tumakbo ka sa Kanya. He is trying to balance the world economies pero lumuhod ka sa Kanya. He is healing someone now, he is saving souls now, he is forgiving someone now, he is busy now…pero magtanong ka sa Kanya. He will give you time and love.

O ano pang ginagawa mo, istorbohin mo na si Lord!

God’s Kiss

While they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to her firstborn son. Luke 2:6

Prince Naveen needed a kiss. He was desperate. He was looking for a princess who would kiss him so he can turn back to being human from being a green frog. Fortunately, he found Tiana who was dressed like a princess. Tiana, who has dreams of becoming a restaurant owner, has to make a deal with the frog prince to provide for her in order to make her dream come true in exchange of the kiss. Prince Naveen, who has riches to provide for Tiana’s dream, agreed to the deal just to get the “frog” spell go away.  It was a mistake for as they kiss, magic smoke came out and when it died down – Tiana became a frog and Naveen was still a frog.

We needed a kiss, too. We are desperate. We were looking for a Savior to come and bring us to light from our darkness. We are seeking for someone to come to save us from our sins and give us hope.  And God came near. He has no motive but to save His people from being “frogs” to being holy and whole. God came near and He did not make a deal to come. He came and He comes for He love us.  Jesus becoming one of us is God’s kiss. God’s kiss is a God turning into a man. And it was not a mistake. God became man so man can be one with his God and live for Him again.  No magic smoke puffed, just God’s pure passion and unconditional love for His people. God became man – that is God’s kiss.
