"For it has been granted to you, on behalf of Christ not only to believe on Him, but also to suffer for Him." Paul (Philippians, 1:29)
To cooperate personally with the human administrators in a direct sense, has always been the object of ambition of the workers of this or that terrestrial organization.
It is an act of true confidence to be able to share the responsibilities between the superior who knows how to be just, with the subordinate who knows how to serve. It establishes the basis for harmony in the daily activities, a realization that all institutions seek to attain.
Many of the students of Christianity appear to ignore that with regards to Jesus, the reciprocity is the same, elevated to the maximum degree, in the area of fidelity and comprehension.
A greater understanding of the divine program signifies, a greater expression of individual testimony in the services of the Master.
Expanded competence - greater accumulation of duties.
The more light - the more vision.
Many individuals who have naturally achieved certain intellectual characteristics, but still considered mentally sick, would like to accept the Savior and believe in Him, but, they cannot instantly achieve such an inner personal evolvement. In lieu of the ignorance they fail to eliminate and the capriciousness they possess, they fail to integrate in the right to perceive the Truths of Jesus. This will only be achieved when they readjust, which is indispensable.
However, the disciple who has achieved the benefits of the faith was considered worthy of residing spiritually with the Master. Between he and the Lord, an exchange of confidence and of responsibility does already exist. Nevertheless, while persevering in the joys of Bethlehem and the glories of Capernaum, the labor of faith unfolds marvelously; but, in perpetuating the division of the anguish of the cross, many students flee fearing the suffering, revealing themselves unworthy of being selected. Those who behave like this are categorized as crazy, as, to withdraw from collaborating with the Master, is to scorn a sacred right.
