One God

It's Holy Tuesday and while the rest of the world are going about their daily business, most of the Philippines is at a standstill in observance of the Holy Week. My view of Holy Week has changed over the years. While still at a very young age, I was prompted not to make noise during Holy Week, especially on Good Friday, because God dying and come 3:00,P.M., is dead. That train of thought confused me a lot because at a very young age I was taught in Sunday School that we have an everlasting Father of a God, that was crucified then risen from the dead. So how can that same God die every year? I became older and later learned that the "dead God" thingy was just a ploy to shut me up back then.

Holy Week is a time to contemplate more on the sacrifice that Christ did for the world in order to save us from us sin and give everlasting life for those who believe in Him and accept Him as their personal Savior. No amount of self-penitence on your part would come close to His sacrifice so the bottom line is confess your sins directly to God, ask for forgiveness, and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.

1 Timothy 2:5 (New International Version)

5For there is one God and one mediator between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus,
