Kingdom Revelator Australia – Issue 51
In the Holy Father’s greeting to Christian Life Community, he wrote – ‘to be guided by a Christian way of life, with a strong spiritual life and working for the Kingdom means, letting oneself be shaped by the love of Jesus, having His same sentiments, asking oneself continuously: What have I done for Christ? What am I doing for Christ? What I ought to do for Christ?
The recognition of the gift and the grace that the Lord has given you over these years shall lead you. Firstly, into a humble act of thanksgiving, because Jesus has looked at you beyond your qualities and virtues. At the same time, this entails a call to responsibility, to leave yourselves behind and go forth to encounter others. To nourish them with the only bread capable of satisfying the human heart: the love of Christ’.
Philippians 2:6-7 reminds us of the nature of Christ, “Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness.” Following the Pope’s advice, lets learn to serve God and who knows, perhaps we too might become a Christ bearing saint one day!
