We are living vehicles of the living God
The man without God can even succeed in his life, be charitable, achieve all the goals he sets himself, have an exemplary family, be a good husband, a good wife, a good son, a good mother.
But deep down, when the mind is silent , when all the worries seem to have ceased and there remains only that solitude that makes us think in the sense of our own existence, what does the soul say?What’s the point of getting out of bed each day and moving on? What will remain at the end of our journey? And what awaits us after the end? Total annihilation? Another life, a new chance? It is in these moments that it becomes inevitable to think of God.
The human soul cries out for the return to the presence of the Father, from which we have been deprived by the action of sin . Culture tries to build, but it is not in myths, statues, half-man gods, half-livestock or mere philosophies. To know God we have to first discover that He lives in us and to know that this presence is given by grace.
It is simply and wonderfully just this: God is present and alive in us . We are the temple of the Holy Spirit. We are living vehicles of the living God.
The Lord bless you!
