Part 10: Life-Giver

One ordinary Wednesday morning, as I was on my way to the seminary where I teach, I saw something out of the ordinary. While crossing the pedestrian overpass, I noticed that many people were looking up. So I also looked up to see what the commotion is all about. Then, I saw this young man on top of the billboard trying to commit suicide.

September 11, 2013 at Munoz, Quezon City. A young man attempting to kill himself by jumping off from the top of the billboard.

I saw some of the people around me making fun of him and urging him to kill himself quick. I felt sad that many people don’t value the life of that one lonely, desperate man.

There’s nothing much I can do at that moment (I’m not Superman!) but pray and tell Jesus, “You alone can rescue, you alone can save…”

After three hours of that real-life drama, he was rescued.

But we need to realize that that man and all of us are in a much greater danger than physical pain or death. We need to be rescued. Desperately. And there’s only One who can do that for us.
