My anxiety attacked this past few days because of overthinking about what's happening here in the house and even if I experienced that I always find ways to be positive. Everytime I am having an anxiety I always listen to worship song, read a few verses on the bible and also watching videos about God. One of my favorite Facebook page to hang out when I'm anxious is the bible Ninja except from the Boiling waters that is also one of my favorites but that one is more focus on love. I mean from opposite sex.
I listened to two videos on the Facebook group and let me share to you what I learned.
They said Satan is not effective when he is in the drug den or even in the people we called pushers or even in all the bad people. He is not effective there. Do you want to know the place where Satan is so effective? It is when he got an access to enter the church. If Satan got a chance to talk to pulpit and then when he began to influence them , those servants who has most well meaning heart and with good intentions but influenced by Satan to talk wrong words or phrases.
That's why let's not think that we are exempted on Satan when we are in church. We have to be very cautious. Don't say that we are perfect or we are the owner of the church or anything that can be reason for or we are elder or we are attending church for twenty years just like that.
Remember the story when Judas is in front of Jesus but still influenced by Satan? Being cautious is needed because that's how the enemy works. But the good news is " God is with us " .
When Jesus washes the feet of his disciples. This was happened during the passover before Judas betray Jesus. He stand up and said that his time will be near. So I just have three things that I will share to you before Jesus passed away. This is not the seven last words of Jesus, but this things happened before Jesus crucified on the cross. It was part of the last supper before the crucifixion. So here they are
Humility: Having a servants heart.
During thier time washing the feet has a great symbolism , maybe because in thier era the road is not yet cemented and there's a lot of dust in the road and because they are wearing sandals that time ofcourse their feet will become dirty. So there's a tradition in thier place way back when you are going to someone house or if you will visit and enter someone's house , the slave of the house will offer to wash your feet before entering thier house or if you are a very important person the owner of the house will be the one who will wash your feet.
If you read John 12 saying Jesus has done washing the feet of his disciples. Jesus teach us humility because even if He knows his true identity he still offer his disciples to wash thier feet. Even if he knew that He is the son of God he didn't used it as an excuse.
Jesus already knew that his death will be near that why he share to the disciples the possible challenges that they may experience. Challenges for those people who followed him that why he felt pity for the disciples and He want the disciples to be ready with that.
I believe we , the child of Christ are ready for some situation. Like this pandemic , I know it was unexpected but through the passage that we have read for the passed years it gives us the faith to fight everyday.
Let's read back the verse one and two with this phrase " Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. " Jesus love us until the end , until the last air that we breath. Jesus loves us. His love is undying and it's unending. Like what I said earlier ,maybe we feel that we are not ready for the given situation like this pandemic but let us believe that God knows that it will happened and let's put our hope inside us. The Lord loves us and it's not His intention to abandoned us. Always remember that God loves you and also remember that our faith is very important especially now and strongly believe to the word of God. He promised us that He will faced the death but being resurrected after and it happened. He is a living God.
