Sign of God’s Love

Sign of God’s Love

If God loves you so much, how come bad things are happening to you?

Imagine this scenario: Your car tire blows and you are late for work. At the office, you find out that someone else got the promotion you had been hoping for. Then, you receive a call from home informing you that your kitchen pipes are leaking again. Before long, you hear a voice telling you; (perhaps you are asking the same question today and wondering) “Mahal ba talaga ako ng Diyos?

Well, I want you to know that you must never judge God’s love for you based on your circumstances. No, look at the cross instead! The cross is the sure symbol of God’s love for you. It is at the cross that “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

A teenager learnt that the cross indeed spoke of how much God loves her. May isang pagkakataon sa kanyang buhay na nagbalak siyang magpakamatay upang mabigyang solusyon ang problema niya sa kanyang pangangatawan. She had intended to take some Panadol tablets with a bottle of vodka. She was all ready to die when she started clicking aimlessly on some MP3 songs in her computer. And of all the songs that were on her screen, she picked a beautiful song written by church musicians. The lyrics of the song, sung by one of our church vocalists, spoke of being held by God’s love and being treasured in His sight.

When you look at your life and find yourself wondering if God really loves you, look to the cross and see God’s outstretched arms. Ipapaalalanito sa iyo at masisiguro mo kung gaano ka kamahal ni Hesus
