God Guided Me
I come from a poor family, I began to believe in God as a young man, always interested in stories about God. For many years, I read the Bible without belonging to a community, but God taught me through His Word.
„”Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”Matthew 5:6
However, I also went to church, where I met many brothers and sisters. I loved going there because they were full of love, and although I didn’t understand the teaching at first, I still listened with interest.
But the point came in my life when I no longer wanted to hear about God from teachers, but wanted to know everything myself. So God began to teach me:
„And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.””Jeremiah 31:34
This journey is long and will last until my death because the knowledge of God is so deep that it cannot be mastered during an earthly life. I believe that after we die, when we come to Him, we will continue to learn. In the meantime, I hope my earthly life will prove useful to God and will be suitable for the spiritual growth of my brothers and sisters.
„For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”Ephesians 2:10
I believe that the time I spend in the church is not enough to be kind to God. It’s good to recharge, sing praises, talk, but we have to live the Christian life at every moment, not just in the church. That is why I understood that we must look for opportunities to do good, I must not be idle. I want to understand this with all my brothers and sisters, because unfortunately there are many whose life as a believer is just about going to church.
„you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”1Peter 2:5
