Who’s Calling…

Telephone_165516

When i was young, i used to hog this black phone for hours on calls with friends. I was constantly getting scolded by my parents as it was the only phone for use by the whole family as well as for my dad’s work.

Fast forward 30-ish years and now almost everyone owns a mobile phone. For their own use alone. How much we have taken things for granted.

Our son has just been enlisted for compulsory military service. Suddenly, the mobile phone has turned into a precious commodity. No phone charging was allowed during his confinement period. He was constantly worried about using his 3 power banks before the 2 weeks were up. Phone calls were restricted to only once a night, and even then, there were days he went without. Every call, every minute has become so precious for us to hear his voice, to find out how he’s coping and how tough it is.

It makes me realise how the disciples of Jesus must have felt when Jesus told them that He was going away. All this while, they had Him with them. Suddenly, He was leaving them. They felt lost. But He promised that He would never leave them alone. He would send them His Advocate. All they needed to do was wait…

And so we wait… for the Gift of His Holy Spirit.    By Renee

Jesus said, ‘… you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and then you will be my witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to the ends of the earth.’
  As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight.    (Acts 1:9-11)
