If God is for us
Thought of the day:
‘If God is for us, who can stand against us?’ (Romans 8:31)
This is perhaps one of the most well-known slogans or mottos for life, but it is often used incorrectly or simply in a mechanical and impersonal way.
In fact, wherever you look today, whether you are looking at groups of simple people or the complex organizations of the world, you will be surprised to find that each individual tries to define his or her identity or differences from others through a ‘motto’. , or through a set of values that describe its uniqueness in this world.
We all do it, regardless of the education or culture we receive, because in nature is hidden this unnatural desire to leave its mark everywhere it passes.
Keeping this in mind, and taking a brief look at the apostle Paul’s discourse, we can easily see the full essence of his mindset. Namely, the fact that God is in control of all things and in His divine love, He will use any lever to guide our steps to the ‘salvation’ of the soul (and also to the heavenly Kingdom).
But to get there and enjoy the fellowship of the Creator and His angels forever depends only on ourselves and how we approach life in a practical way.
So meditating carefully on your own person, now try to identify your motto by which you guide your life, or more simply, the ‘motto’ that defines your existence; but especially the mentality by which you chose to take your life to heart.
Then, understanding how you are, and what defines you in relation to others in the motley world around us, choose to live today for your God; enduring the suffering for a moment and enjoying the fellowship of Heaven.
Let the radiance characteristic of God’s children be reflected on your face, so that in every deed or word one can feel the elegance, the goodness and the Divine love.
