Happiness is Reflected in Your Actions

Those moments of joy and happiness that fertilize the love in our hearts. Learn in the following article how to cultivate love in your life.

"But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life." 1 Timothy 1:16

In our life as sons and daughters of the Heavenly Father, it is normal to be questioned or asked questions about our Faith.

Often these questions come from people who do not know the Holy Spirit or have faith in our Lord. However, this does not mean that we should get angry or respond in kind to their comments.

It is important to keep in mind that, in these situations, it is also possible that we may doubt our own faith. We might ask ourselves: Where is God at this moment when everything seems to be going wrong?

This is especially true when these questions come from people who do not know Jesus Christ as the Son of God, nor have they experienced his love and transforming power in their own lives.

"But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind." James 1:6

Faced with these questions, it is essential to remember that not everyone knows the word of God as it is described in the Holy Bible, nor do they understand the way to eternal life. It is our responsibility as beings of the Lord to try to open their eyes and make them understand our devotion to Jesus.

This will give us the opportunity to share our life story, and explain to them the reasons why we entrust ourselves to the Lord.

"Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son." 1 John 5:10

It is possible that some people will remain skeptical even after our explanations. However, we should not worry about this, as God has a plan for everyone, even those who do not believe in Him at this time. In time, it is possible that these people will open their minds and hearts to God's love, and we will be able to see them from a new, more open perspective.

It is important to remember that Jesus Himself was questioned and criticized all along the way, but He never lost His humility and always imparted Divine Justice.

In spite of the attacks and questionings, He advanced in the face of wind and tide, working for the good of humanity as He had been entrusted by the Heavenly Father. And in the miracle of the resurrection, He showed us the way to eternal life.

"To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly." 1 Peter 2:21-23

As followers of Jesus, it is our duty and responsibility to follow his legacy, imparting the teachings of the Faith and bringing the light of God's word to those who have not yet discovered it.

We must remember that we are all brothers and sisters in Christ, and that our love and patience can be a powerful tool to show others the love and grace of God.

Questioning and wondering about our Faith is an opportunity to share our life story, our experiences with God and the reasons why we trust Him.

We must always remember that Jesus himself was questioned and criticized, but he never lost his humility or failed to impart Divine Justice. Let us follow his legacy, and bring the light of God's word to all those who have not yet discovered it.
