Bus Driver

Every time when we sit on a bus and toward a journey, God's favor come upon us, some young adults will show his or her respect by allowing my husband and myself to have their seats. Often the Rapid KL bus which we took, packed with passengers.
I quietly sat down and observed the driver as well as the passengers. After a short journey, someone would rang a bell and the bus will stop and wait until the passenger or passengers get down and more people to get on the bus before continue its journey. In certain place like Taman Maluri, Cheras which near the Star L.R.T. station, many passengers will drop down and transit to take train, hence the bus have lots of empty seats.
A bus driver could not stop any of his passengers from getting up the bus only when his bus is "full house". And the driver is in charge of driving the bus to its destination, and he has no right to stop his passenger or passengers from getting up/down the bus. Some passengers will only ride for a short journey, others will take longer route.
As we singing and praising the LORD within our heart, the LORD reveals to me that; a pastor of  which the LORD has appointed or positioned them has a similar role like a bus driver. A pastor or { a bus driver } is in charge of his sheers or congregation { Passengers }. At certain period of time, some of the members need to responding to God's calling for their life { passenger has reach his destination } and they need to leave the church { get down the bus } to continue with their journey with GOD. A pastor is only taking care of the spiritual foods and grant protection while the sheep is under his/her care but once the member is clear about God's specific purpose in his life, no pastor or any other member could stop him/her to fulfill his destiny in Christ.
As some members might decide to move to a different church { Transit to train/car or other buses }, Some may stay on the journey until the bus reach its final destination.
                        Mean while, a story came to my mind, .........................................

One fine day, a pastor of a church and a bus driver departing their life from the world to heaven. And both of them reach the heavenly gate, and each of them was guided by their angel to their respective place of dwelling.
The bus driver got his mansion in heaven and he is happily praising the Lord. Whereas the pastor was being led to { Attap house( Small bamboo house) } who was very upset and decided to confront our Lord Jesus. " My Lord, I have been serving you all life on earth since the day l graduated from Bible college. What did the bus drive do to get his mansion and I only allow to stay here in this small little house ?"
Lord Jesus answered him, "My son, when you was preaching on Sunday service, most of the congregations were falling asleep. Whereas, when the bus driver were driving, all the passengers were praying to me in heaven."


HOW would you chose your life to be ? To lead more people closer to God or vise verse?
