Food for Thought from The Presence of the Kingdom:
CHEW ON THESE TIDBITS
What is this ‘spiritual life’ which is ‘life indeed’? It means to live by truths of the catechism whose living depths we can never fathom: Men created in the image of God; judged and condemned by Divine justice; pardoned and saved by His love; a creature, unique and irreplaceable.
Man has become unique because the Son of God has died for each of his creatures.
Why because each soul is called to:
All this comes from the life of the Holy Spirit within us: ‘We know that we have passed out of death into life.’ There is no other life; but we must live it, and we must not allow ourselves to be dried up by the influence of the spirit of this world.
… In a civilization which has lost the meaning of life, the most useful thing a Christian can do is to live, and life understood from the point of view of faith, has an extraordinary explosive force.[emphasis mine] We are not aware of it, because we only believe in ‘efficiency,’ and life is not efficient. But this life alone can break the illusions of the modern world by showing everyone the utter powerlessness of a mechanistic view.
The great Jim Rohn learned a lesson from his mentor Mr. Earl Shoaf that had an enormous impact on the rest of his life. Mr. Shoaf said to Jim, “If you will change, everything will change for you.”
Do you want to design your life—as far as it depends on you—rather than continue to just “act”? Rather than build some else’s dreams? Are you willing to change whatever is necessary in order to accomplish this?
Then come along with me. Let’s live a “profound life”. Let’s make a huge impact. Leave a legacy that touches many lives.
Take a look around this site.
Pray for grace and strength then live.
