Living Without Sinning

Everyday I see people running and jogging. It’s good to see such individual taking care of their physical health. Technology has been such a big help that we can accurately track our progress. How much calories we’ve burned, how fast we were going and the distance we’ve traveled. Like any other human task we always strive to do better than the last time. By looking our previous performance we can see which one we have to work on more. Why can’t we do the same thing with our eternal health. Do you think it’s impossible to have a sin free life? Beside we’re talking about eternity here. Isn’t that what grace is for, to cover our sin? Grace is not an excuse to commit more sin rather, it should be the reason not to sin. Yes I know it is very hard to do. It is close to impossible. People who wanted to lose weight said the same thing and yet they were able to achieve it. Beside Jesus Christ himself said, If you love me obey my commandments and why call me Lord when you don’t do what I tell you to do. So, how about it? Start today or tomorrow, remember your eternity depends on it. Thinking of a good eternal exercise here. How about stop lusting. Stop cursing. Caring more for other people instead of me, me, and me. Being loyal to your spouse not only when […]

Life Is Short

The day before Christmas eve, I found my self browsing through antique and thrift stores. Looking for anything that is of old, anything from the 18th to 19th century. To the 50’s until the 80’s. As the people I know from the older generation start dying one after the other. It dawns on me that sooner or later it’ll be my turn soon. I remember when I was younger, to just take my time. I had this sense of eternity and invincibility. Now that I’ll be turning 40, that isn’t the case. Those days were seem like yesterday. I found myself clamoring for the old things that I wish I could bring them back. I had this sense of rejection of the technology we use today. Life was much simpler then. I start watching classic movies from the 50’s. I watched the 80’s music videos over and over to relieved all those good memories. Women were so beautiful in that time. Very classy and tactful. You could actually tell the difference between a man and woman. They were very pretty and the dress, don’t even start me on that. Sometimes I think I could travel back in time and live through their time. Not so today. Almost everyone is covered with tattoos or piercings. Just like what my brother told me,”You’re getting old indeed.” Nowadays, I am always grasping for time. I guess you could say it’s one of the […]
