Alexandre Oliveira, on Sorrindo Pra Vida [Smiling at Life], invites us to reflect on who Jesus is in our life and mission. The true Christian is recognized as a child of God and has attitudes guided by him. Check out his message.

The meditated Word is in Saint Luke 7.18 -23:
“The disciples of John told him about all these things. John summoned two of his disciples and sent them to the Lord to ask, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?” When the men came to him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to you to ask, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?’” At that time he cured many of their diseases, sufferings, and evil spirits; he also granted sight to many who were blind.And he said to them in reply, “Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind regain their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the good news proclaimed to them. And blessed is the one who takes no offense at me.

Unfortunately, in our environment, there are many Christians who expect another Christ. Canção Nova announces and preparing God’s people for the second coming of the Lord, and the community doesn’t expect another Christ, but the same, yesterday, today and always.

Many times, we Christians have created another conception of Christ, very different from what the Church tells us and teaches. How many people lose their faith, because they live their religion according to their truths!

Maybe, today, before the silence of God to our prayers, we question what’s going on. Do you want to understand the silence of the Lord? Dip your heart in Catholic doctrine. The Saints, the Holy Scriptures, the Magisterium and the Catholic Church teach us to understand our faith.

Do wait for the second coming of Christ or we hope another Messiah? The one who loves recognizes, from afar, the face of the beloved.

What is my position as a Christian?

What do we have to show the world? How many praise Him in the Church, but then murmur in their homes. Our behavior has to be consistent with what we preach.

Are we being faithful?

Christ wants us to be faithful with constancy, but the enemy wants to see us on the ground. So as not to be defeated by the devil, we can seek to be in the hands of God and let us persevere, because Heaven is for us.

Our ‘ yes ‘ is forever. We seek to remain steadfast to the end, for our loyalty becomes a testimony of life.

Do our attitudes show that we’re Catholic?

Our action follows our being our day to day attitudes show how much we are of God. No matter what, let us persevere until the end. Let us not be defeated by the enemy. God wants real children, and like good children, let’s give pride to our Dad!
