We are still in this time where people are trying to cope up with new schedules, routines, and many other things. Everyone’s going back to what they should be doing and embracing changes. These are new moments where our faith as true missionaries will be tested again – a time to apply everything God taught us.
On particular worship, upon listening to an exhortation of a dear brother who’s a college student, I wondered how it would feel to be a student at this present time where everything’s online. For a lot of times, we, as MFC Youth, have spent long hours on our screens. So, now is the time where students will spend more hours to be able to still attend MFC Youth activities. It will be moments of choosing, sacrificing, and being willing to be inconvenienced for the sake of our mission. I have arrived at the idea that as servants, we should give our best effort to be used by God to inspire and prepare them for those things which they might experience in the next coming days.
I also asked the Lord, “Was it really worth it that we continued pushing ourselves to have those lots of activities in the past, or it just made us tired enough to convince ourselves to set aside being an MFC Youth when we start to become busy with our online classes?
During that worship, God affirmed me. One of the things that sustains a student throughout a whole day in school is their allowances. They might not have them now, but for sure in every way that we strive to offer ourselves in the mission, they are receiving the greatest allowance they could ever have. Christ is shared to them and it is He who will sustain us not only for a day but for the rest of our lives.
