The exercise of reflection brings with it the appearance of questions that arise from within us and for which, many times, we do not find answers. Discover now all the answers you need in the following article.
“But in fact, God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.” 1 Corinthians 12:18
We are the creation of The Lord Almighty. We are beings to whom God has designated a path and a Plan. As members of the People of Christ, we must cultivate a receptive and humble Spirit to understand the magnitude of the marvelous Blessing of being chosen by Him.
In no way should we understand the Mission that has been entrusted to us as a burden. On the contrary, The Lord has already prepared our paths beforehand, urging us to walk them, surpassing ourselves day by day in His Glory. It is a path of Salvation, of good works, of Love.
Let us constantly renew our commitment and our Faith with our Savior, communicating with Him through prayer and the reading of the Holy Scriptures. Let us ask Him, with all our heart, for Balance, Peace, and Wisdom to fulfill our function under the halo of His Eternal Glory.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:8-10
We are sent into the world endowed with the gift of life, the greatest gift of our Heavenly Father. We have not come to suffer, nor to be tested; we have come to live and enjoy the presence of Jesus. However, along the way, we will encounter storms, we will have to reach goals, we will have to overcome obstacles and make decisions in difficult moments. But what is our true mission, how do we know what our loving Father is asking of us?
In order to undertake the Good Works that The Lord has prepared for us, we must take into consideration several characteristics that form a wide range in which we must develop as beings worthy of God's Mercy.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
The Highest calls us to perform acts of Kindness with our brothers and, within our possibilities, Justice for our neighbor. We have a purpose to fulfill: To help all those in need. We must perform these actions to please our Holy Father but also as the main tool of gratitude for the Blessings received by Him.
That is why it is fundamental to develop our talents and gifts and put them at His service, to communicate the Word of The Lord in every corner of the planet with humility, joy, perseverance and above all with Faith. Let us remember that the act of serving lives in us, this is how Almighty God has created us.
“Everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” Isaiah 43:7
The Lord guides us on the path of selfless and humble service, allowing us to understand that we have been touched by the gift of His grace and that through it we can accomplish all that Christ has called us to undertake.
We come from God to go to God. We are here to get to know and love Him and to do Good according to His will. Let us recall the words of Pope Francis at the Angelus on October 29th, 2017: "We are created to love and to be loved. God, who is Love, has created us to make us sharers in His life, to be loved by Him and to love Him, and to love with Him all people. This is God's dream for man".
