Is your Spiritual Life Burdened by Distractions?
edit_button

If your like most of us including myself, you would have said "yes". It's rather hard at time to live an entire day for Christ. Try to live one day without committing any sins at all. It's certainly not easy.

I hope to begin a series of posts at this blog centered on ways and suggestions of living a Christ-centered life in today's world. If you have any suggestions, let me know.

But until I make those posts, Catholic Culture has a good piece on it entitled "The Cacaphony of Life"

I have never tried to "work my way to Heaven". By going through the Sacraments, Christ is working in me. Without His sacrifice on the Cross and His love I could not nothing. One can't work for their salvation, but one can allow Christ to work through us in the sacraments.

Exactly my point this whole time. We are sinners, that's why Jesus is our only hope. Perhaps we should all find the right motivation for doing good works. With our works, we should look to thank and praise Jesus for what he's done for us, instead of trying to work our way to heaven. If working your way to heaven is your only motivation, then of course your going to be very troubled because you are never doing enough to get their. That's why God doesn't judge us by what we do wrong and what we do right. He looks at us through Jesus, seeing us as perfect because of the robes of righteousness Jesus has put on us. If he looked at us through good works, our sins would far outway our works, and we would be damned because God demands that we are perfect to go to heaven. That's why we have Jesus, who lived that perfect life for us. He has chosen each of us to be with him in heaven with him, not because of what we do, but because of his love for us. And none of us will ever understand this, but God's ways are better than ours. By the way, i have really enjoyed these conversations.

I am covered over with a robe of righteousness that Jesus gives to me, gives to me.
I am covered over with the precious blood of Jesus, and He lives in me, lives in me.
Oh what a joy it is to know my Heavenly Father loves me so, He gives to me, my Jesus.
And when He looks at me He see not what I used to be but He sees Jesus.
