|Ready to Risk All|
As humans living in this sometimes-frustrating world we remain living signs of God’s Graced and Glory; as Matthew reminds us, we must demonstrate this by shining God’s light on all we do. As free people of God, we inherit the wonderful tradition of demonstrate the freedom and dignity of all men and women around our small planet. We are all one of God’s chosen children. As His children, we honor justice and hate immorality.
As Peter reminds us “Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.” Each of us are missionaries of God’s word and light. Sometimes, we are put through unpleasant times; this darkness in our lives can be devastating; it is these times that we must seek rescuing from ourselves. Our old worn-out ideas no longer work, we need to love ourselves as Jesus invites us to do. We are God’s holy creation; we must use all of God’s creation to be of service in spreading His love.
We have a great teacher in Jesus; when we follow his lighted path, invite Him not our hearts, we find it simple to spread Love to one another. My prayer is that we look upon the other as an equal and share God’s Grace given freely without God asking from us nothing but love.
