Let Us Learn as Quickly as Possible

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him." Paul (Colossians, 2:6)

Among those who refer to Jesus Christ, we can identify two distinct groups: those that know Him through information received, and those who have received His benefits. The former received knowledge of the Master through books or in the exhortations of others, but marches toward the situation of the second, who have already received His blessings. To the latter the Gospel should address more emphatically.

How do we find the Lord in our journey throughout the world? Sometimes, His Divine Presence is manifested through the solution of a difficult human problem, i.e. in improved health, in the return of a loved one, in the spontaneous renovation of a path so that new illuminating light can instill better reasoning.

There are many informed people with respect to Jesus, and many have already absorbed His Saving Grace.

It is indispensable, however, that those who have received benefits from Christ, and have experienced the happiness in the blessing, also feel the same pleasure in the work and in their testimony of faith.

It will not be enough to be saturated with blessings. It is necessary that we do our part in collaborating in the service of the Gospel, attentive to its sanctifying program.

Tedious repetition and useless activities can be peculiar to spirits that are not well informed; however, we who have already received the infinite Mercy of the Lord should learn, as soon as possible, to adapt ourselves to His Sublime Designs.
