33. Invitation to conversion
Paul is not perfect, but he invites us nevertheless to a conversion:
You should put away the old self of your former way of life, corrupted through deceitful desires, and be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new self, created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of truth. Ephesians, chapter 4, verses 22 to 24
May we get rid of ways that lead us to forget God in our meetings, while we’re sharing memories with our family or with our friends.
Then Paul continues in the quoted text: “put on the new self, created in God’s way in righteousness and holiness of truth”.
Paul offers us a beautiful journey of faith. Let’s trust in Jesus. Let’s find time to explore God’s reality, to thank him, to let him love us. But let’s not think that we have achieved our goal. Let’s continue to move forward in faith, simply, with whom we already are.
Being in God allows us to become more ourselves. We want to be like him, give our lives to him, recognizing him in humanity and inviting people to follow him by charitable ways.
May we let God’s Word transform us to the point of becoming like him.
