Thought of the day:

One of the most popular and common attitudes among contemporary Christians is the assumption with pomp and self-confidence of the title of ‘child of God’, but without having a consistent understanding of the responsibility and practices that circumscribe this extraordinary relationship. With the Trinity.

In our haste to assume undeserved and tickling titles, we prefer in an uncontrollable selfishness to ‘crucify’ Christ every day and if possible at every moment, in order to obtain our ‘well-deserved’ forgiveness. As if it were, is and will be His fundamental role in the relationship with the common mortal.

Why do I say that? Because by carefully analyzing the dynamics of postmodern Christianity we notice a light-hearted mentality of ‘fluent’ Christians. I am referring here to the tendency to always and unjustly take advantage of the overwhelming goodness of the Creator, on the grounds that Christ is in any case an inexhaustible source of forgiveness from which we can all drink when necessary and according to our own desires, souls tired of daily pleasures. Of sin.

Thinking in this way, we betray ourselves the ‘greedy desire’ for the pleasures of the moment, which we later apologize childishly, coveting the undeserved inheritance of the Kingdom.

Ironically, we loudly motivate our actions by voluntarily selecting misunderstood Biblical texts, which we then try to throw in front of those who look at our curious actions.

Looking, therefore, with an analytical eye at our nefarious contemporaneity, the following question tactfully addressed to each of us arises: “How do I position myself in relation to the holiness of God? I have chosen to practice the status of ‘profiteer’ of Divine goodness, or on the contrary, that of co-worker with Christ for the expansion of His Kingdom! ‘

Remember: a true child of God resembles his Heavenly Father both physically (in daily actions) and spiritually, practicing abundant thinking and mentality in holiness.

Be blessed!
