Every Follow Friday, we feature some of the best answers from our FB or Twitter followers. This week we asked them “If there’s one thing you can tell people about Lent/Holy Week, what would you say?”

Here are some of the answers that spoke to us:

“May ipinangako na manliligtas sayo at Siya ay ipinako sa Krus. Ang Pangako na ipinako ay ang tanging Daan, tanging Katotohanan at tanging Buhay at pag-asa natin.”

– Hazel Suson Alvarez

 

“Jesus died once (not every year) for our sins to be forgiven… Jesus paid it all on the cross.”

–  Majoy Puertos Satana

 

” The nail-pierced hands of Jesus shows the love filled heart of God to us”

– Pamela Ruth Tacsuan

 

“Kalayaan at Pag-asa… ito ang kahulugan ng Mahal Na Araw para sa akin… na minsan, sa kasaysayan ng mundo, may isang taong ipinako sa krus para palayain ang sangkatauhan sa kasalanan at bigyan ng bagong pag-asa ang lahat ng nabubuhay sa kadiliman… ang sabi nga ni Hesus habang Siya’y nakabayubay doon sa krus, “Naganap na!”… hindi na ito mauulit pa… ang manampalataya ay maliligtas…”

– Romnick Melliza

 

” Holy Week is a joyous time because we are being reminded to reflect and thank God for giving His only begotten Son to die for our sins. Once and for all, Jesus made a way for us to avail of the most amazing gift ever known. It is already finished–thousand of years ago!🙂 The question now is, have you already accepted this gift of eternal life offered by Jesus by grace though faith, and not by your own works? “

– Glaiza Garcia Tominio

 

” I would share the beauty of the message of the gospel and the grandness of God’s love for us. And to empower such message, I will quote verses:
    ‘But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.’ (Romans 5:8)

‘and this is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us…’ (1 John 3:16) “

– Ryan Reyes

 

” I would tell people, that while it is good to remember this coming lent the greatest sacrifice which is Christ’s death, because if not for Him, we wouldn’t have the gift of salvation, we should also remember and know, that Jesus died only once, and that He rose again and he is now in Heaven. The cross is empty. And that there is no good deed or sacrifice that human can do that could save us. Salvation is only through faith in Jesus (Eph. 2:8-9)”

– Ysac Antigo
