It's breaking dawn here and in many parts of the world...!
I got up from bed today, stumbling out of bed, still asleep, walking, meandering my way to my key-board. I sat and I saw, or see the first shaft of light break in the horizon of my window facing the east. It was good to hear from my freinds in Signapore, New Zealand, Phillipines and beyond out there. But for them I'm way out here, wondering what and how my life is like. We have problem like anybody else. I wonder what they have for breakfast in the Phillippines or for lunch in New Zealand or what stew for dinner in our Signapore?...
And it had begun to dawn on me that we all have indeed one Lord, one Creator, one Redeemer! When was it that we started to speak different languages or thought of each other as the fellow from over there, way there?! We know we are connected with the marvel of technology. But I hadn't quite grasp how instantenous is the contact with each other. The tears of New York are the tears of the whole world! What a wonder to understand this. When we first made a conjecture that lies brings loneliness, the truth brings abundance of comfort and fellowship from everywhere...!
["...8 Do not owe anyone anything, [a] except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. (A) 9 The commandments:
You shall not commit adultery,
you shall not murder,
you shall not steal,
you shall not covet, (B) (C)
and if there is any other commandment—all are summed up by this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (D) (E)
10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor. Love, therefore, is the fulfillment of the law.
11 Besides this, knowing the time, it is already the hour (F) for you [c] to wake up from sleep, (G) for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. (H) 12 The night is nearly over, and the daylight is near, (I) so let us discard the deeds of darkness (J) and put on the armor of light. (K) 13 Let us walk with decency, (L) as in the daylight: not in carousing and drunkenness; (M) not in sexual impurity and promiscuity; not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, (N) and make no plans to satisfy the fleshly desires. (O)...]
Yes. The hour has come and its time and it is already the hour for me to wake up from sleep...The night is nearly over, and the daylight is near...yes the dawn of the brother hood is here for the whole world...our whole world...
