Total obedience and submission
Thought of the day:
One of the principles that formed the basis of humanity, in fact the foundation on which everything was built, was the attitude of obedience of the Lord Jesus to the will of His Father, generically called God!
“In appearance Christ was found as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: I have concluded the quotation from Ep Ap Paul to Philippians 2: 8-9
Summarizing in simple words this great mystery of Heaven, we understand that without the extraordinary attitude of ‘listening’ nothing would have been possible in the creative process; That extraordinary masterpiece of which you and I are a part today.
But if we extend our analysis even deeper, we find that the motor and inertia of the initial sin appeared precisely on this axis of mentality, but directed in the opposite direction, namely to ‘disobedience to God’s will.’ In other words, instead of strictly following the plan for which we were created, we have chosen contradictory and contorted paths of wickedness.
Returning diligently to the ancient text that is our foundation for wisdom today, we find that the secret and key to success in life lies only in the attitude of humility and obedience to the plan that the Creator has made for each of us! This kind of obedience, however, does not imply an obtuse and mechanical execution of His will, but it starts rather from the understanding and conscious adoption of the divine mentality, and then its application in the practice of one’s own lives.
Wherever you are, therefore, choose to be a wise man today; And even if secular society will indirectly teach you that only by aggressively elbowing, and only by protesting loudly will you become a man of caliber in this raging world, you apply in your life the art of humility, compassion, and wisdom, following the example of our Lord Jesus Christ; One who has reached the highest peak, using Himself the mystery of total obedience and submission to the will of His Father, God.
