As Christians we are to entrust ourselves to Christ. Through Christ we know the Father and love Him more and more. We feel and see God’s love each day and all around us.
As Christians we obey the commandments that were given to Moses on Mount Sinai and also the beatitudes that Christ gave in his Sermon on the Mount. We become blessed as we embody the beatitudes. By being peacemakers, meek and humble, poor and pure, we draw closer and closer to the Kingdom of God. We are not perfect. Nevertheless, Jesus tells us to seek perfection in God and we will be forgiven. Each and every day God pours out His blessing on us.
Therefore, we should never be out of words to say “Thank you” to God.
Like Abraham, the prophets and more importantly the Mother of Jesus, Mary, we should say “Yes” to God and mean it. Though we may consider ourselves unworthy, by submitting to Him, He makes us worthy. He purifies us and makes us anew for His mission. God should be the “Chief Executive Officer (CEO)” of our lives. Why not let Him lead us into new horizons? What are we afraid of? Time and again in the Scriptures we are told “Be Not Afraid”, “Do Not Be Afraid.” So why don’t we listen and obey? Let us make a pledge today to take serious steps in becoming closer and building our relationship with God. Let us not be afraid to love Him and to express our love for Him. Let us do everything with the love God has given to us.
Let us start on the path to happiness by knowing who we are. Knowing our dignity and our real worth and who or what motivates us. Let us make our decisions by choosing wisely. Let us live for today by focusing on the present, not yesterday or tomorrow. Let us always be grateful and share the love of Christ by helping someone else find happiness. Let us set priorities and get rid of less valuable desires. Let us enjoy what we do and not be lazy.
Does It Have To Be Jesus? That was the question in my mind 48 years ago in January 1970. I knew there was a God.
One of Isaiah’s first prophetic utterances involved one of his sons. And though the prophecy was mainly directed at the kingdom of Judah, how and where Isaiah was commanded by God to prophesy holds a precious message for each person that reads this article, no matter who they are or what they have done..
God is good and he created all things good. No evil comes from Him.
All must be just, loyal and respectful of others, even when they have faults. We should struggle to bring about change and defend our rights; but we must lead these struggles and live our commitments according to the Spirit of Christ.reply 0
