Lord, I cry to you, come to my aid;
Give ear to my voice when I call upon thee.
May my prayer stand before you as incense,
My hands raised as an evening sacrifice.

Psalm 140 (141).

Give your time to Jesus

Jesus Christ is alive, he is present now and he guides us towards eternity: when he speaks through the Gospel he speaks with me and with you today. Many people relate to Jesus as if it were a story of the past, a beautiful fairy tale, a statue, and deep down believe that it does not even exist. We must stop talking about Jesus and make Jesus speak, it is Jesus who must speak to us through His word.

Sometimes we want to convince people by telling them about Jesus and instead we are called to be eyewitnesses of Jesus: "I met him, I spoke to him, I experienced Jesus who changed my life, my way of living friendship, work and prayer".

And that was exactly what the apostles testified: "What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have contemplated and what our hands have touched, that is, the Word of life, what we have seen and heard, we also proclaim to you, so that you too may be in communion with us. Our communion is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ".
(1 Jn 1,1-3).

We too should not be silent, but speak with the splendour with which Truth opens our mouths and illumines our hearts and makes us become communicators of joy. If we bear our witness, that is what we live through Jesus Christ, others will not be able to say that it is not true, because we are witnesses, we are the living proof that God exists, because we can show that he changed our lives, our character, our expectations. Of course, with limits still, with sins still to be resolved, but we can say that we have met Christ.

Many people believe that everything can be said about God and the opposite of everything. It is a great lie, these claims stem from the falsehoods of those who have not told the truth about God. Who is He really, what are the things He said? These false concepts lead many to make serious mistakes in their lives, especially in making people believe that every sin can be committed, so much so that God forgives everything even without any repentance.

Many follow these absurd teachings which, however, are not reflected in the Scriptures, but which lead thousands and thousands of beings on the path of eternal condemnation. The Gospel teaches that in order to obtain forgiveness from God, there must be a sincere repentance; in this sense the parable of the Prodigal Son is illuminating: "How many servants of my father have bread in abundance, and here I die of hunger! I will rise and go to my father, and I will say to him: "Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you: I am no longer worthy to be called your son; Cross me as one of your servants".

So he got up and went back to his father. But while he was still far away, his father saw him and took pity on him; he ran, and fell to his neck and kissed him. And the son said to him: "Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you: I am no longer worthy to be called your son".
(Lk 15,17-21).

Are we willing to let ourselves be corrected, are we willing to let the Lord tell us the truth about Him? And how do we understand these truths? Without a life of prayer it is impossible to know God. If a person tells you that he loves you, loves you, but does not give you time, does not listen to you, does not consider you and does not notice when you are sick, do you believe him when he tells you that he loves you? You don’t believe, because he never showed you.

With God we do the same thing: we say that we love him, we praise him and never give him time. Friendship must be cultivated: if you really want to know him, every day you must give him time, to deepen the word he left you in the sacred texts, seek him through prayer, allow him to burn your heart with his love darts; Then that’s where you’ll find him.

A true faith, even today, needs a sincere and continuous search. Then, as the truths of the Gospel become clear, the desire to practice them, to communicate them, will increase; but the need for silence and contemplation will also grow. It is necessary to snatch more time for prayer! And ask the Lord to give us more and more each day to be aware that we are walking the path He has laid out for us, and to strengthen in us the desire to communicate what we have seen and heard.

And as we improve, we will understand that grace abounds and then we can accomplish the things it has called us to do. Prayer is very important, because without it we would be like blind people: it is prayer that dissipates darkness and gets us the light with which we will know God more and more, and we will be amazed by His teachings.

He is the greatest teacher and can reveal us things that we never thought we would discover. Only the knowledge of the Lord can lead us to act without calculations and give us the courage to dare to be fearless in being His witnesses.
