Kung alam ko lang na libre pala!

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge… Hosea 4:6 King James Version (KJV)

May isang lalake na taga probinsya na sumakay sa eroplano for the first time. Siya ay natanggap sa trabaho sa Middle East. Nagkaroon ng announcement na ang pagkain ay darating na sa kanila. Lumapit ang stewardess sa lalaki at nagtanong: “Sir, ano po ang gusto ninyong lunch? May pork or isda po.”

Sumagot ang lalaki: “ok lang dahil busog pa ako.” Pag dating ng gabi, bumalik ang flight stewardess upang tanungin ulet sya: “Sir, meron pong adobo or longanissa. Ano po ang gusto ninyo?” Sumagot ang lalaki na busog pa din sya at wala syang ganang kumain.

Kinabukasan ganoon na naman ang sinasabi ng lalaki na busog pa sya. Hindi rin sya umiinom ng tubig. Noong makarating sila sa kanilang destination, habang bumababa siya sa hagdan, bigla syang nahilo at nahulog. Nabalian siya sa paa. Dinala sya sa emergency room. Nalaman doon na hindi sya kumain sa buong flight. Tinanong sya ng nurse: “Bakit hindi po kayo kumain sa eroplano.” Sumagot ang lalaki: “ang totoo eh gusto kong kumain talaga pero wala akong perang pambayad kase baka mahal.” Sabi ng nurse: “Wala pong bayad ang pagkain sa eroplano, sir. Libre po yon kase nabayaran nyo na po yon pagbili nyo ng ticket.” Nagsisi ang lalaki:

” Ha!? Kung alam ko lamang na libre pala yon! Bakit di nila sinabi?

Maraming tao na ang kilala lamang ay ang pangalan ng Panginoong Hesus ngunit hindi nila alam ang Kanyang katangian at kapangyarihan. He is not just a God in heaven waiting to be worshipped. But He wants you to know what He can do for you!

Jesus said: “Call unto me, and I will answer you…” He said: “Come unto me, you who are tired and weary and I will give you rest.” He also said: “I am with you until the end of the world. Don’t be afraid. You are more than conqueror.” (paraphrase).

We only experience the full benefit of our phone or gadget when we understand what it can do and its functions. Jesus gave us His word – the Bible that contains all His promises which we can hold on in times of trouble. Call unto Him and tell Him whatever you are feeling right now. Are you afraid? Do you need healing? Are you broken-hearted? Do you need financial blessing? Be still and know that there is God. He loves and cares for you. Ask and He said: “I will do anything according to your faith. Believe and you shall receive.

Blessing: 

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Know that He loves you and He is waiting for you to ask His power to manifest in your life.
