The Sign

We want to see signs. They make us comfortable. They are not only guides. They assure us that there is civilization somewhere however distant it may be. Road signs, traffic signs, weather signs, friendship signs, family signs, personal signs, and whatever signs we imbed in our memories are simply remembered as signs. They have personal attachments to us. They remind us of who we are and how we should live in such order.

This lenten season we are reminded of a sign that has become a universal reminder. Through time and throughout all history, the Cross is remembered not only by those who believe in the One who was crucified but also by those who are still willing to listen and somehow believe.

The signs of the times. As Jesus has said in Matthew 16:1-3, “When evening comes, you say, ‘it will be fair weather, for the sky is red’. And in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.”

We want to understand these signs. The only way is to read the Book of the Author of the signs of times and seek to understand His Word through His own guidance.

Today we are praying for peace. May the sign of peace pervade our hearts and souls. Peace starts from within. So may the Author of Peace, God Himself, guide us through the experience of gaining His kind of peace that will exude the light of faith in each soul; the sign that we are searching for through life.
