Though many people have all the worldly riches, they would lack heavenly riches such as mercy, peace and love. With our knowledge and effort, we could work hard and earn the worldly riches. But how do we enjoy the riches of heaven?
It is through God alone…
Only He could bestow you with His peace; Only He could shower his mercy upon you; Only He could bless you in abundance with His love. Remember that you are always incomplete without Him.
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature,having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”
Though children may ask all what they like to their parents, being parents we know what is good and bad for our children, and we get them the right and the best ones. A good parent always give good things to their children and want them to stay away from bad company and habits.
But as a child, they become frustrated, when we don’t get what they ask for. Though your children may not understand your care for them in their childhood, they would realize it as they grow up.
In the same way, since we have called upon Him and our God is merciful and loving, His divine power has given us all want is needed for our godly life. According to His promises, He has granted us everything good and what is needed for our growth and welfare.
Through His divine power and promises, we all can stay away corruption and evil desires. Stay very close to His divine presence and everything will happen good around and within you.
“I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, this is your true and proper worship.”
People sacrifice animals, plants and sometimes human being as a sacrifice to God, to get what they desire or as an act of worship. In real life, one of the well-known sacrifice, which happens in most of the family is, parents sacrifice their luxury and happiness for the welfare of their children. Some people sacrifice things with expectations and some do not expect anything in return but sacrifice various things because of love.
What type of sacrifice did God teach us all? What type of sacrifice does God expect from us? His sacrifice for us can never be compared with anything else. He does not require gold, silver or life from you. All He desires from you is a holy body and a sinless life which will always please Him. Offer Him your holiness and receive His mercy. That’s what is so called true and proper way of worshiping Him. So let’s sacrifice and worship in the right manner to receive God’s mercy and blessing.
