Nothing more precious than Jesus – 2

Aug 09, 2017 | Dr. Mathew Kuruvilla

Paul, in his epistle to the Galatians, says that faith is activated by love. When we love Jesus, we are strengthened in our faith. He also states, “It is no longer I but Christ who lives in me.” We live on our faith in Jesus who loved us so much that He died for us. ’Faith working out of love’.

On hearing about their love for Jesus and the saints, Paul says he is able to remember them in his prayers and that his prayers for them are going to be effective because of their love. If we harbour bitterness, envy, hatred etc in our hearts, we will not be able to have a wide perspective about God. If we compare ourselves with others and get entangled with such negative emotions, we will never understand what God has prepared for us, nor His purpose for us.

God’s purposes are versatile and unique for each individual. Some are called to administer, some to serve, like that each is endowed with a unique purpose. For this reason the church is called the body of Christ ie ; various parts each with a function that is one-of –a-kind.

It is very crucial that each of us understand God’s purpose for us and that knowledge can help us to do our work faithfully and run the race with perseverance and devoid of competition. Let me assure you of one thing, God will not take the reward apportioned for one person and give it to another. Each one will receive his /her own reward. The reward is prepared and kept but God wants us to walk in His love so that He can reveal Himself to us. We must know that Jesus reveals everything to those who love Him. So, let us walk in His love and know Him more and more!
