Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 8 – 14 July 2018
“The news about Him spread throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and He healed them.”
– Matthew 4:24
During the rainy season, cities in Manila frequently suspend their classes to safeguard the welfare of the students and to facilitate the rescue activities in affected places especially in areas where schools have been turned into evacuation centers. Students and parents anxiously wait for the announcements in the news or on the Internet.
For Christians, there is a news that is more worthy of waiting than a class suspension, and that is the Good News of Christ for every believer.
When He was still around with us in this world, Jesus Christ had made promises for us, even when we were not yet born. His plan for salvation is a culmination of the desire of God to save us from our sins. His sacrifice showed that we are loved and we will be saved when we put our faith and trust in Him.
In our lives, we often wait for a news that will change the course of our lives be it in small-scale or large-scale events and happenings. What more should we wait than the Good News of Christ that can save us for eternity!
Christ delivered the Good News so that we may trust Him.
