To evolve in faith, it is important to observe from time to time, what is and what is not fine in our faith. Let’s replace ourselves before Christ, to be at our best and to grow in faith.
A continued conversion allows the jewel of faith to be polished by the hand of God. People who are filled with God’s Love become inflamed, they become lights in the world.
Paul invites us to persevere:
Provided that you persevere in the faith, firmly grounded, stable, and not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, am a minister, Colossians, chapter 1, verse 23
during Mass, among other means. May we remain strong and firm in the faith and strong in the grace of God. And as Paul says:
“To live in a manner worthy of the Lord, so as to be fully pleasing, in every good work bearing fruit and growing in the knowledge of God.” Colossians, chapter 1, verse 10
Let’s be certain that if we keep Jesus with us, in us, we will make progress “in the true knowledge of God”. In Jesus, we will become bearers of God’s Love. We will grow in this love and the people accompanying us during our earthly pilgrimage will benefit from it.
