"Ibang Klase"

2. IBANGKLASE

"HE TESTIFIES TO WHAT HE HAS SEEN & HEARD, BUT NO ONE ACCEPTS HIS TESTIMONY." (Jn.3: 31-36)

"Ibang Klase," this is what corona virus is. Thus, they named it Nobel Coronavirus or COVID-19. It is contagious. It kills & no vaccine yet.

"Ibang Klase," this is what Jesus offers Nicodemus in their discourse for he offers not only  life "in the flesh" but of the Spirit.

Making it more acceptable, he makes it special.

So, what makes it SPECIAL (also for us)? It is nonetheless the:

S-alvific P-lan (of) E-ternity (in)
C-hrist's I-mmense (and) A-bundant L-ove.

Thus, our response ought to be
"Ibang Klase," like Peter & the apostles.

Given the warning not to preach about Jesus, they become vocal & vigorous instead. So, when they are questioned before the Sanhedrin, they say, "We rather obey God than men" (Acts 5:27-33).

Amidst the threat & danger of COVID-19, we are called to make a difference:

* To be courageous front-liners amidst the threat of COVID-19;
* To be cooperative home-liners even if we want to go out;
* To keep social distance even if we want to be physically closer to one another;
* To be generous in the midst of the temptation to be greedy;
* To postpone gratification as an expression of being patient amidst ECQ;
* To be spiritually rich in this time of material poverty, etc.

May we be moved by & in the Spirit of the risen Lord & make a difference.

God bless !
