Learn how to foster these two key pillars to expand the reach of the Holy Spirit. Learn in the following article how to accept the Invitation to change.
"But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness." 1 Timothy 6:11
Service to others is a way to reconnect with spiritual wholeness. Helping others makes you feel good about yourself and brings you closer to God. You can help someone in need, contribute your time and skills to an important cause, or simply be a good friend or companion to someone in need.
To reconnect with spiritual wholeness is a path to happiness and inner peace. It is important to be aware of your needs and goals, connect with God through prayer and meditation, have gratitude, be helpful to others, and have faith and trust in God. With these ingredients, you will find the spiritual fulfillment and happiness you seek.
"By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me— a prayer to the God of my life." Psalm 42:8
Love is a recurring theme in the Bible and in the teaching of Jesus. It is the fundamental pillar of the Christian faith and the key to understanding the nature of God and his relationship with us.
Starting from the premise that love makes everything possible, we must recognize daily the opportunity to change and cultivate our hearts to love in the same way God loves us.
Love is what prompted God to give the life of his only son for our salvation and what drives us to strive for a better and happier world. For this reason, we should help those who need it most and be a source of comfort and hope for others. But in order to give useful and effective advice, we must first experience it in ourselves.
"For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love." 2 Peter 1:5-7
Living according to Christ's teachings and Heavenly Father's standards will help us to heal our hearts and be on the right path. Learning from the Scriptures will teach us to better manage our lives and replicate God's message of love and forgiveness.
Prayer are valuable tools to reconnect with spiritual wholeness. Meditation allows you to enter a state of stillness and inner peace, which helps you connect with your soul and with God. Prayer is a direct dialogue with the Creator, where you can express your thoughts, feelings and needs.
"Do not hate a fellow Israelite in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt. “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord." Leviticus 19:17-18
However, just talking about the wonders of the Lord is not enough. We must back up our words with acts of faith that reflect God's love and presence in our lives. It is better that our actions speak for us and our faith, rather than just filling our lips with empty words.
Cultivating love in our hearts is a constant process of growth and transformation. We must be willing to change and follow Christ's teachings to reflect His love in our daily actions and decisions.
In doing so, we will be transmitting a unique and valuable message to the world and we will be living a full and meaningful life.
