Description

God has saved us and calls us to a holy life.

2 Timothy 1:8-10 God has saved us and calls us to a holy life.

8 So do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord, nor of me, a prisoner for His sake; but bear your share of hardship for the gospel with the strength that comes from God. 9 He saved us and called us to a holy life, not according to our works but according to His own design and the grace bestowed on us in Christ Jesus before time began, 10 but now made manifest through the appearance of our savior Christ Jesus, who destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,

Church vs. Hunting Where is the grace of God, the love of God, the goodness of God, obvious? In the life of Jesus Christ. Some people say, “I don’t need to go to church because I just go to the park on Sunday and feel really close to God.” Or, “I sense God’s presence under the blue sky on the golf course.” The heavens, trees, mountains, and oceans, indeed, speak of God’s power and creativity. But not of His love and grace. Yes, nature shows the reality of God, but in a limited way and nature can be confusing. That’s why pagan cultures tried to appease the gods of nature with human sacrifices, hoping that they would not be swallowed up by earthquakes or burned up in lava floes.

The only way to understand the grace and goodness of God is not by going to the park, golf course or mountains on Sunday, but by remembering what Jesus did on Calvary, and reliving the Last Supper, while carefully listening to the readings at Mass
