It is stimulating to learn, may it be technical information, cultural or social, news, or developing aptitude for different sports. Today it is remarkable what we can achieve. We are now going into other space, we have personal computers, we surf on the internet and our athletes are still breaking records. For many, the lucky ones, life is sweet and beautiful, there is no lack of entertainment, but there is still something missing. Faith in God is what brings security before death. Some may believe in securing life on earth in brotherhood through the development of human rights, but they are helpless when the time comes to leave all they have.
Mankind or men, doesn’t always accept the invisible if it is not what they can hope to control or manage. What is invisible as to be perceived as an eventual conquest or measurable ideal, I believe that is what dictates the atheist in their refusal to believe in God, by so they are free to act as they choose. And they are those who are religious and aware of their weakness and pray God for help. So does God exist? We can all bend over a microscope and discover what was just before invisible to our human eye. Why are so many people pretentious to believe that we are not so minuscule in the universe, yet known by God? I believe in a universal God that brings hope to all mankind, reaching our hearts to teach us to share with our brothers and sisters for the best life on earth and in heaven.
With all our being, thoughts, emotions, soul, we freely progress in and with Christ toward a greater evolution. Does the devil exist? Yes, Satan is mention throughout the bible and also by Jesus. Jesus himself was tempted by him when fasting in the desert and rejected him. Philosophers or psychologist will say that Satan or demons are just part of our subconscious reacting, but evil has nothing to gain and no power in front of Gods angels.
We must believe in God to be saved, God is merciful. It is astonishing how nowadays some religions are still implicating abusive corporal punishments. We may say that all religions are well intended, but not all are so good. Nothing can compare to Christianity. Some religions seem to be peaceful but are impregnated by extremists and fanatics that wage ware on other religions or are discriminate against women leaving them no freedom or possibility to evolve, even children are not permitted to play; apparently it is all due to miss interpretation of their scriptures. Still nothing compares to the love of God that shared our sufferings with his beloved son Jesus Christ.
There is nothing more sufficient or satisfying than to want and search for universal accord and God answers prayers ask in Jesus name. Sadly the world will disregard what is true love and companionship for life. Harmony is what is essential; all troublesome people hope to rejoice in peace. But everywhere we can recognize a world of selfish and malicious people, so governments are installing laws to protect the innocents, and sometimes governments are themselves corrupt. If only everyone would receive Christ…
God rejects the world and its lust, but, also, loves mercifully everyone that recognizes his son. The sad part of being part of a rejected world is not doing more for ourselves and others because we are all redeemable. No one is better than the other, God may reject some mundane attitudes, but grace is for everyone. I personally may be full of sins or errors, but still I strive to better myself to develop living values. I am so weak, but the best I can do is to pray for others and hope to become a subject of joy for the Lord. Far from an apostle of any meaning I question myself on modern subjects of purpose or influence.
Christ is modernization for all times. But how do we live our Christianity? We learn how by reading the bible but I do not do everything Wright. I am without great value, I can only understand how I must kneel down before the Lord, and may I stay humble before God’s love. The fear of God is wisdom from the old testament, that fear should now be replace by regrets of our sins washed by the blood of the lam of God.
I pray for the help of the Holy Ghost that fortifies our being and I ask forgiveness for my sins in front of Jesus who suffered for me. Jesus is the love of the father who replaces the fear of the just whit the desire to love; redemption is for those that repent. The more we know the more we must act even if I am so little and mundane at that.
Philippians 4:13 New Living Translation For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. I must correct myself and do more for the glory of Jesus Christ my Lord. Every part of the bible gravitates to the blood of Christ that delivers us from our sins; it is necessary to persevere in the best way. I do not believe that God abandons any sinners. Every sick person that comes to Jesus Christ is helped. Jesus is an undeniable pure source, the fact that we recognize him or believe in him, is sufficient to save us.
John 11:25 New Living Translation Jesus told her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.
John 12:44 New International Version Then Jesus cried out, "Whoever believes in me does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. Our true God has always mercy at hand for mankind.
1 John 4:18 International Standard Version There is no fear where love exists. Rather, perfect love banishes fear, for fear involves punishment, and the person who lives in fear has not been perfected in love.
I think about other cultures, other beliefs, I think that anywhere that love dominates in a form of self sacrifice for the benefits of others in genuine charity, that God recognizes people has knowing Jesus after all; but it must also be pure without insignificant Idols. It is difficult to please God, but so easy when we know Jesus Christ.
The strength of a human will survive death if God accept the heart that he sees. If Satan amuses himself cutting the grass just beneath our feet to make us believe that good cannot survive, we must not rebel but pursue in the best way. We must remember the parable of the weed and not be deserving of the furnace.
It is uneasy to know that sometimes we may deserve the weeds fate but we must look upon Jesus Christ for our redemption.
Acts 15 New Living Translation God knows people’s hearts, and he confirmed that he accepts Gentiles by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us.
We are all invited to know Jesus Christ. God loves everyone. If our conscious is overwhelmed by our surroundings, like when someone is emerge in complete incomprehension, it is unlikely to condemn such persons if they have a thirst for justice or love for mankind so I believe they may have the fate of a handicap person and have a place with God.
Matthew 5 New International Version Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount
1Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them.3 Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
When we hope but still commit errors, we must pray for the help of the Holy Ghost and persevere. We must read the word because the word will prune us.
John 15, 2-4 New International Version The Vine and the Branches 1“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. Jesus is love, he is the humanity chosen by the Father for eternity.
I believe in Jesus, now I must try to please him.
The encounter between Jesus and the rich young ruler is something to remember. God will always ask more of us but God loves everyone. The rich young man calls Jesus good, not knowing he is the son of god, he ask Jesus what he must do to inherit eternal life. Mark 10, 18 New International Version "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone. We must understand that no one is perfect; there is only grace to make us perfect. 19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother. ” 20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?”27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
Jesus knows that the conscious of the rich is limited for what tends to charity and Jesus loves the needy.
Matthew 25,42-45 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
We must admit that acting without consequence in much easier than trying to save everybody.
1 John 3, 17 If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?
Grace is here for everyone.
John 3, 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
It is impossible to be perfect. Only faith in Jesus Christ can help us, where the Father demonstrated that Jesus was perfect by resurrecting him.
Ephesians 2:8 New International Version For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God John 4, 10 Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water."
John 7, 38 New Living Translation Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, 'Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.'"
I cannot follow to the letter the scriptures but I can try and hope. If we do not give away all our belonging we must at least remember others in need and help. Like the Good Samaritan whoever acts as sort pleases Jesus and I think is also recognize by the Father even if he is of a different faith than Christian. Like for the rich young ruler noting is impossible for God.
Romans 13:10 New Living Translation Love does no wrong to others, so love fulfills the requirements of God's law.
1 Corinthians 13:3 New American Standard Bible And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
The Jews are known for asking for signs to put their belief in something. But a simple primary attraction would gather them around Jesus.
New International Version John 6, 26-27 26 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”
I believe in God. When I say so, some people ask me which God? The answer is the creator of everything with his greater love for mankind by the realization of his son made flesh. Jesus is the one and only son of God. He’s God’s love in the flesh. Jesus represents mankind as what is pure and just, he was crucified, died and was resurrected by the father. The blood of Jesus Christ washes away all sins of those who believe in him.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
