"FOLLOW JESUS" - DR. CLAUDIO FREIDZON
Reading time: 4 minutes
Disposing our hearts to a relationship with God, makes us followers of his perfect will. [Ex. 3: 2-4]
Something that impacted my heart is related to knowing the importance that our life has for God and knowing the key to being people who radiate his presence.
In times where technology and social networks prevail, many believe that their value is determined by the opinion of their environment.
You write something on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and if the content has few replies, then it feels "less important."
Actually, our value is not determined by someone else's opinion.
Our value is given by what Christ did for us on the cross.
Discovering that we have a value for God, and that each one plays a role, with different talents. Because not all of us can develop the same abilities and gifts, it is necessary to understand that God Himself did not equip us with different capacities to develop our offices and professions.
Even those people who say, "Well, but I'm a housewife ..."
In that case, these people are surrounded by family, friends and neighbors where they also apply as God's channels.
Know that the Lord prepares us to be those instruments in your hands.
First of all, we must emphasize that God saved us so that we have faith, believing that Jesus is our savior; secondly, the faith to believe that He has “the crown of life” and a purpose for our lives, but also the daily faith, which we apply constantly.
There was a man who undertook great tasks for God; a Hebrew who spent forty years in Egypt and said: "I am going to do great things for my people." We know the story of Moses; how he was raised by the pharaoh's family and later identified with the people of Israel.
Moses had at his disposal the best in education and wisdom of the time, but he did not know God. In a similar way it happens today with many of us ... we are prepared but we lack "one last touch" ...
… ”A touch of heaven.”
This condition is not given by our insistence asserting that we are prepared; ready to develop what God put in us; But it is not about insistence but about the conviction of the Holy Spirit.
"What draws people to God is not us, but the one who dwells in us."
The Bible says in Exodus 3: 2-4 (RV 60): "And the Angel of Jehovah appeared to him in a flame of fire in the midst of a bush; and he looked, and saw that the bush was burning with fire, and the bush was not consumed. Then Moses said: I will go now and see this great vision, why does the bush not burn. When Jehovah saw that he was going to see, God called him from the midst of the bush, and said: Moses, Moses! And he answered: Here I am. ”
The way of the Lord allows us to reveal the presence of God. That revelation, as part of the conviction of the Holy Spirit, occurs when we set our hearts to the relationship that the Lord invites us to develop every day.
Just follow Jesus
