Understand the mysteries of God
Thought of the day:
‘Walk in the power of the Holy Spirit without fulfilling the lusts of the flesh.’ Galatians 5:16
Meditating carefully on this phrase and being motivated by the real desire to understand the mysteries of God, we notice today one of the most important principles of the Christian life, namely total submission under the authority of the Holy Spirit – God of God, part of the working Trinity In us and through us.
Holy Spirit who should be found in the practical thinking and attitude of every true Christian.
But to be totally subject to the Godhead and in this case to the Holy Spirit is a mentality that unfortunately is almost completely missing from our daily lives, although, ironically, we strongly claim that we practice it.
Why do I say that? Because the presence of the Godhead in our own lives should be seen naturally in our behaviors, practices and especially in our daily words, and in no way emerge exclusively from the pompous and self-praising statements by which we claim unreal merits or statutes. .
In simple terms we could say that a man full of the Holy Spirit will practically bring the presence of God to the place where he is; Where looking at him, all those around him can easily distinguish the peace, kindness, gentleness, and dense and contagious joy of a real believer.
Understanding now the wonderful perspective of the divine mentality, I stop for a moment from the tumultuous running of life and ask myself in secret:
‘Am I really under the authority of God or, on the contrary, am I trying my best to impose my own will, thus living the illusion of a false holiness’?
