Some nice words
When and where, there was slavery, the slave could not do anything by himself in order to be released. But if he was informed that there is someone able to release him, of course he would like to meet Him . What can release man from the sin of the slavery and error, is the Word of Christ that leads to the knowledge of the Truth. All you have to do is to stay faithful to His Word to meet the Truth and this will set you free!
When a man is trapped under the ruins, his hope is the rescuers. When someone is shipwrecked at the ocean, his hope is an helicopter. When somebody is condemned to death, his hope is the Grace of God. When someone has been poisoned, his hope is the antidote. When everybody is tired because of the heavy load of the sin, his hope is the Christ who was crossed for the sins of people.
Someone was talking to someone else about a very old man he knew . He believed that God was making him live for so long, in order to punish him for not being a good person. Then , the other one told him, if that’s the case , maybe he does not allow this to punish him, but to give him a chance to repent ,while someone else might die young to avoid sin . The first one thought he was smart, but the other one was wise .
GOD DOES NOT POISON ANY SOUL.
Someone used to poison with words one of his friends. When that man once seemed annoyed, the first man to justify his behavior , told him: Come on, my friend , it was just a joke. Then his friend, joking also , told him: what a coincidence, the devil also makes jokes like this. Well, attention! Because each time someone plays with other people’ s souls , he can be confused with devil. God, definitely can’t be poisoned and of course he doesn’ t poison any soul, too, according to James words.( J 1, 13).
The Sinful Passions and the Demons
The sinful passions and sin in general aren’t demons but we can call it moral evil. Evil doesn’t exist as an entity but the devil is an evil spirit. If we say that a passion is a demon, then someone could also say that devil doesn’t exist but is the personalization of evil. In order to avoid this misunderstanding, we should say that a sinful passion is born by devil and it is not the devil himself. The passion is hidden inside the heart of man. If we tell that it is a devil, then someone might think that we all have a devil inside our heart. And if someone has a little passion, then the someone could say that he has a little devil in him. So the passions are not identical to demons. Now during a conversation, if someone makes this mistake, we absolutely understand what he is talking about.
When one is buried under rubble, one's hope is the rescue team. When one is a castaway in the open sea, one's hope is the helicopter. When one is sentenced to the death penalty, one's hope is mercy. When one is poisoned, one's hope is the antidote. When the entire world is burdened with the heavy load of sin, their hope is Jesus Christ who carries the world's sin.
MANNER IS IMPORTANT AS WELL
A woman facing a serious medical condition was, abruptly and without much consideration, told by an acquaintance the words of the Apostle Paul. "Whom the Lord loves He chastens." He did not tell her, however, the words preceding that phrase nor the ones that follow, in which God's paternal love becomes apparent, especially at the moment of temptation. While his intention was to give her strength and support her, the woman, who was in great suffering at that moment, heard these words, did not understand their meaning and imagined God as a punisher. Because of that, in an equally abrupt and unthinking manner as her acquaintance, she asked, "of all the people in the world, why did God have to love me?" It is therefore important to consider the manner in which one speaks, even when spreading the words of God
HUMILITY AND LOVE
Humility is a stranger to many and therefore, many times, they don't even want to hear its name. They have no idea of the precious things they are missing without it. Wherever there's egoism, humility hides its face. Wherever it exists, egoism disappears simply because humility is the light while egoism the darkness. The same way light chases away the darkness, humility chases away egoism. Those who have humility love themselves as well as other people with genuine love. First and foremost though, they love Jesus Christ from whom love originates.
Humility leads people to great heights. Wherever there's humility, God's favour follows and with it come the virtues, centering on love, which is the integral of the divine law. We see, therefore, that humility chases egoism away and brings love forth. Love leads to God from whom it originates as it was previously mentioned. Jesus Christ Himself, the Son of God, humbled Himself and took the role of a servant, teaching us in that way the value and importance of humility. Humility and love then are important components of the Christian life and are an invaluable treasure for every person. Those who seek to gain this treasure are certainly wise and clever while the same cannot be said for those who choose to scorn it.
