Answering God

Lent is a time of fasting and prayer, of much human work and dedication, so that we may be disposed to let the beat of God’s heart and the rhythm of his spirit take possession of ours. Happy are they who follow the law of the Lord. A law which isn’t easy, the Lord never said it would be, on the contrary it is hard and challenging. Why? As the gospel according to St Matthew clearly points out: “Be perfect just as your heavenly Father is perfect,”. This, my friends, is the challenge which defines us as Christians. We are asked to be perfect, not in the perfectionist sense, no we aren’t called to be demanding or fussy about getting everthing to the last detail. In fact what Christ meant to say is that we ought to love, not only our friends but also our enemies, and pray for them.

One thought on “Answering God

  1. God is truly mysterious. sometimes he asks help from us.. some of us like my good friend Justin, are not only proud to share their beliefs with the rest of the world, but they are also proud of their religion and will defend it at all costs. then there those who are a bit shy to speak out loud (like myself), this doesn’t mean that i don’t believe in the lord, but i like to listen. people like this author always make me smile when they discuss issues when other colleagues. I want to wish you luck and encourage you for future posts. I shall continue to read them with pleasure.
