Confusion

Confusion

which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.  Galatians 1:7  NIV

 

Every weekend they filed dutifully into class.  Most came grudgingly to the catechesis class and complained about going.  Their parents made them go.  The only bright side was that at the end of their course, there would be a communion ceremony and they would receive presents.  The whole process should have been a joy.  The children should have been brought into an awareness of the wonderful Being who gives life, saves us, and has gone to great lengths to teach us of His love.  What have we learned of the God of Wonders?  Is He something distant and boring, or the opposite?

If we study our Bibles we will learn many amazing things about God that modern religions may fail to teach us.  It is not that our churches are wrong, but that there is a dark side in life that will do anything to bring confusion and prevent us from coming to God.  Only brave souls, who hear a call deep within their hearts, will be stirred to seek God.  But this is what God is looking for.  He waits to discover Himself to those who will resist the world´s small view of Him and listen to the call to come to know Christ themselves.  Can we hear a voice inside calling us to venture to look up?  Could we pray that the Lord open our hearts to be amazed by Him today?

 

Dear Lord,

In the face of all that would keep us from knowing You, please help us hear Your call.  Lead us through an infinity of thrilling discoveries of You and Your love each day, we pray!

Amen
