If you keep your heart nourished with peace, love, faith and hope, you will be able to feel things never before imagined.
“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
Probably more than once in our lives we have been questioned. Either for some kind of attitude towards a fact, a series of actions performed (or omitted) or simply for being part of a particular situation. Without going any further, we have been questioned for being Christians. First of all, we must understand that these questionings come from insecure people, who surely do not know the Holy Spirit nor have faith in our Lord. We do not have to get angry or respond with the same tone to their sayings and statements
“…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
Another situation that is triggered by receiving this type of approach is to begin to doubt about our Faith. "Where is your God at this time when everything is wrong?" That is one of the main questions we may receive from certain people who do not know Jesus Christ as the Son of God. Not having opened themselves to the strength and enlightenment of the Heavenly Lord, they do not recognize His miracles, nor do they know the word of God described in the Holy Bible. They will not understand the way to eternal life nor will they understand our obligation as brothers and sisters of the faith.
“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
Whether it is ignorance, insecurity or evil itself that causes people to approach us with questions about God or our Faith, the important thing is to try to open their eyes. This will be an opportunity for them to not only understand our devotion to Jesus, but it will also give them the opportunity to know our own reasons for entrusting ourselves to the Lord. Tell them our life story or the exact moment in which we began to pray. The reasons or circumstances for which we went through the need to connect with the Holy Spirit. If these people continue to be skeptical, let's not worry. God has a plan for them too. Probably if we cross paths with these people again at some point, we will be able to see them from a new and more open perspective.
“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
Let us always remember that Jesus was questioned and criticized throughout His journey, working for the good of humanity as He had been entrusted by the Heavenly Father. In spite of receiving all kinds of attacks and questionings, He advanced against all odds, being judged and crucified, He showed us in the miracle of the resurrection the way to eternal life. Without losing His humility, teaching us about Faith and always imparting Divine Justice, Jesus left us a great legacy in our hearts. A legacy that we must repeat and replicate wherever we are. Before any person who does not know the benefits of the Holy Spirit.
