Who is really difficult or complicated: we or Jesus?

    Who is really difficult or complicated: we or Jesus?

    It is very common people to assert: "it is very tough to abide by the words of Jesus, live on His will. It is very difficult to take in what is written in the Holy Scripture, chiefly in Revelation”.

    Our lean is to look on Revelation as a book full of quandaries. However, we are the ones who are very complicated. For example, when Jesus created the human being, He placed him in Eden. He fleetly thought of turning paradise into something else. And see what came about us, how complicated this world has become !!!

    And since then, the more human beings try to transform the world into a better place, the worse it becomes. Unfortunately, the fear of Paul became reality:

    • “But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.” (2Corinthians 11.3).

    It is the same in our lives: when we came to this world, we arrive completely empty. If money was so necessary, when a baby was able to open his hand (recall that every baby is born with a closed hand), parents should find something very precious that could be used to pay for their maintenance.

    It would be very inconsistent for our Heavenly Father to send us to a strange world without the necessary (certainly you would not send your children to a foreign country without guaranteeing them the necessary to survive).

    The truth is that when we came to this world, we brought with us the only important thing: the love of Jesus. Unfortunately, we forsake His love, keep Jesus and His will for us at bay, and the ending is what our life is today.

    But that can and must change! Just don't leave the right decision for tomorrow, namely: pray to Jesus, hear His voice and follow Him as taught in Sacred Scripture.

    May Jesus help you find what you are really looking for (and not what you want to find), but has not yet realized.

    May Jesus give you a great week in Christ Jesus.

    When we listen to and feed the flesh at times it’s hard to die to our desires. There is more blessing to obey Jesus than the flesh.

    I don't think we're complicated to God. We are as a whole in a fallen state, so we are injured, damaged, corrupt. Not beyond repair, for God has already provided the remedy, Hallelujah! But we are too dumb to figure it out on our own without His intervention, and so we find that it is our fallen state that has complicated things for us.

    On an inter-relational level with one another we can be very complicated. But if we actually sought to understand each other instead of rushing to our own conclusions based on half-informed assumptions due to our severe lack of compassion and patience with one another, we could actually make life much easier for ourselves and others in general.

    More things unite us as a whole, than divide us as a whole. Guess what things we choose to concentrate on. We are not complicated, we are very predictable indeed. And yet, what is man that God is so mindful of us? It boggles the brain. Can't compute. Even so, He loves us.

    He who is limitless. His foolishness is wiser than all our wisdom put together. He wins in the complicated department by far.
