Many Christians today are struggling and don’t understand why they are experiencing this in their lives. To find the source of these difficulties and at the same time to obtain the solution to this problem, one must know the Gospel of Christ.
- Why do we know all these tribulations?
Because man since Genesis knows fundamental problems. Why? Because he sinned. Why did he sin? Because he let himself be seduced by the devil. The only way today to find happiness is to possess the word of God.
One of the keys to owning the gospel is in the book of John 14:6
[creativ_alertbox icon=”” colour=”light-gray” custom_colour=””]Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.[/creativ_alertbox]
What we need to understand through this verse is that Jesus is Christ. As a child of God, we must analyze our difficulties with a spiritual eye and fight spiritually.
- What are our current concerns?
We Christians now seek in the first place to earn money, to ensure our daily bread, to seek marriage, to succeed, to the detriment of our Christian life. This perpetual quest for material sometimes moves us away from our parents, our friends, and God. Often we lose even health.
But what we forget is that neither money, nor food, nor marriage, nor success will satisfy us if we have not actually met Jesus and we don’t have his word.
By declaring that he is the way, the truth and the life, our Lord invites us to lay down our burdens, our worries, our stresses at his feet and devote ourselves entirely to his cause. During this time, he who made us in his image and likeness is responsible for the rest.
- The Christian ignores his identity
If we know our identity, we will spend less time pondering our problems, chasing material and physical things. Because we own the key, the answer to our questions. Is it not written in the Book of Psalms 24:1 : “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it” Our Lord has everything we seek. We just need to get closer to him, seek to know him really.
- It is necessary to go through God to fully enjoy his wealth
It is God who created us and in his image we must be spiritual beings in order to know how to return to happiness. If we are not spiritual beings, the devil can easily seize us. He will be able to make us slaves of the material, adept of the games of money and therefore we shall move away from God. And as the fish that dies when it is removed from the water, we too will die if we stay away from Christ.
Beloved, Jesus did not come by chance. It was sent so that through him we would be redeemed, that we might find happiness. That’s why we have to believe in Jesus, in God.
As soon as we believe in Jesus, our future is assured. Because he paid the price and solved all our problems.
