Why Live As If?

We worship the Lord on Sundays but spend the weekdays as if there is no God.
We celebrate Christmas day but act as as if our Saviour was not born.
          We worship the Lord on Sundays but spend the weekdays as if there is no God.
We remember Palm Sundays the "triumphal entry" of Jesus in Jerusalem but we face the world as if we are defeated.
We mourn on Black Saturdays but live as if Jesus has not risen.
We believe in Resurrection Sunday but make lousy decisions as if Christ is not coming back.

God is real. That's the truth. Whether we believe it or not, doesn't change the truth.

Today during our Palm Sunday service at CCF, Singapore I was reminded that God has immensely blessed us more than life and material gain. He blessed us with His son Jesus Christ who takes away our sins. He blessed us with His Holy presence that gives us hope to remain faithful. That only by God's grace can we come to Him in praise and worship, in solitude and humility. This is an open invitation not to selected few but to ALL humanity. God awaits for us to respond to His invitation. If we make that decision to come to Him, we would surely take portion of His joy, peace and contentment the world cannot offer.

God is our redemption. He is more than enough.

Have a meaningful Lenten season ahead!
