Fullness of everything

I Thirst

#WhyChrist #Ithirst #SundaySchool

Christ thirsts with the world: Do we offer water of love or “vinegar of rejection”?

The Lord’s thirst is indeed quenched by our compassionate love; he is consoled when, in his name, we bend down to another’s suffering.”
So our relationship with God passes through giving food to the hungry and drink to the thirsty, because “faith”, if it is not followed by works, is dead in itself, it is incapable of doing works of charity of showing love.

Parable of Father’s Love

#WhyChrist #FathersLove

The more I read the ‘parable of prodigal son’ the more I feel that this parable in truth a “parable of Father’s love”

Here is the God I want to believe , infinite compassion, unconditional love, everlasting forgiveness emanating from a father, Father God I want to believe in.14141978_1208720952482356_2322885909587265646_n

#WhyChrist #EmptyHand

Dear God,
I am so afraid to open my clenched fists!
Who will I be when I have nothing left to hold on to?
Who will I be when I stand before you with empty hands?
Please help me to gradually open my hands
and to discover that I am not what I own,
but what you want to give me.

Set Free

#WhyChrist

We can make others free because we are #SetFree by Him

Experiences tells us that we can only love because we are born out of love, that we can only give because our life is a gift, and that we can only make others free because we are set free by Him whose heart is greater than ours. When we have found the anchor places for our lives in our own center, we can be free to let others enter into the space created for them.

What I am called to is to enter into that joy .

#WhyChrist
What I am called to is to enter into that joy .

God #rejoices. Not because the problems of the world have been solved, not because all human pain and suffering have come to an end, not because thousands of people have accepted him and are now praising him for his goodness. No, God rejoices because #ONE of His children who was lost has been found. What I am called to is to enter into that #joy . It is God’s joy, not the joy that world offers. It’s is the joy that comes from seeing a child walk .

For most of my life I have struggled to find God, to know God, to love God.

#WhyChrist #LoveGod

For most of my life I have struggled to find God, to know God, to love God.

Now I wonder whether I have sufficiently realized that during all this time God has been trying to find me, to know me, and to love me.
The question is not “How am I to find God?” but “How am I to let myself be found by him?”
The question is not “How am I to know God?” but “How am I to let myself be known by God?”
And, finally, the question is not “How am I to love God?” but “How am I to let myself be loved by God?”
God is looking into the distance for me, trying to find me, and longing to bring me home.

What is our cross??

#WhyChrist #Cross #MathewThePoor
What is our cross??

Christ gave us this image and said, “Now I want you to carry your cross.” What is our cross? I will explain it simply and briefly. Our cross is to suffer pain, and to sacrifice our lies, and to deny ourselves-for the sake of others. It is not for any advantage to yourself. All the advantages that accrue to you are derived from Christ’s Cross. It’s by Christ’s Cross that you die to the world and the world to you. All your lusts and desires, along with the flesh of the old man, are crucified, not on your cross, but on the Cross of Christ.
