“After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, 'Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this'.” Apocalypse 4:1
Believing that the fruits of our lives are to be able to reach a professional goal or be able to build a family, have children and be able to give support to those who follow the same work and in that way repeat it generation after generation seems ideal for many of us. A different attitude, but integral to what was previously mentioned, can show us that you can realize said mission aligned and fed by the Holy Spirit. If we wish to have a fruitful life in the Faith, it is necessary to place this preferential attitude towards Jesus as priority. The transformation produced by the Lord on our direct descendants will be clear and distinct. Our future generations will have received a blessing that will remain in their heart until they are received at the gates of Heaven.
“Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.” John 14:10-11
We do not have to repeat the same steps and follow the path Jesus walked to the letter. We must base our actions on the same principle of Faith on which He based them, to be able to connect ourselves to our Father God. That is our end and with that in mind, we must understand our place in this world full of temptations and suffering.
As children we always repeated what we heard or what our parents, elders, or teachers did. From gestures, transition words, even phrases that are used in daily conversations. How wonderful would it be to be able to repeat what our Heavenly Father said and did. It would be easy if we had him with us every day, right? The most important thing is that we can hear Him and see Him in action!
“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” 1 Juan 4:10
Clearly the great challenge that we must learn as brothers and sisters in the Faith is to understand how to embark on our respective paths relying on Faith. As much God the Father, as Jesus Christ embarked to their destinies in total communion. Hopeful and enlightened by the Holy Spirit, they counted on a unique security and kindness. Living and recreating the Divine Word, through his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ had his mission clear: entrusted by God the Father He came to live among us once more.
“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” Juan 11:25-26
Does this mean that we must go back to living as Jesus did? As Christians we must live our life guided in the Faith. Not necessarily making the same sacrifices that Jesus did, but give them new meaning, understanding them and connection strongly with God to always be able to give the best of each of us, without doubts, imitating his bravery(the meaning of His death and resurrection).
