Traveller Faith - Um encontro com o divino. "Viajar é, antes de tudo, um ato de respeito. De respeito ao outro, aos modos de ser do outro e, também, aos modos de rezar do outro. Caso contrário, como seria possível nos encantamos com o diferente? De que adiantaria cruzar o planeta para conhecer algo que não nos leve a ter novas visões do mundo e da vida?
Uma coisa é certa: de qualquer um dos destinos a seguir, ninguém volta o mesmo." Empréstimo lindo do querido @oliveira.lu02
Freedom has become a golden calf for our society. We strive for freedom. We worship freedom. We chase after freedom more than we chase after God. The modern day ideology of freedom has tricked many of us in to believing that our lives are our own, to do with as we please. Now, freedom is wonderful, to a certain degree. God gave us free will and free choice because he wants us to willingly come to him. However, God's definition of what freedom is far different than our mere human definition. When we freely choose to come to Christ, and accept his gifts of love, forgiveness, and redemption, we must all choose to surrender. This goes against everything we're taught in our modern society. We're taught to fight for our freedom! Fight for our rights! That's great and all, yet some "freedoms" are much more destructive than they are fulfilling. Through Christ there is freedom from sin. Through Christ there is freedom from bondage. Through Christ there is freedom from death, Hell, and the grave. The only way to truly be free, is to truly surrender all that you to Christ. Obviously, it's easier said than done. However, when you choose to give up your earthly will, freedom, and rights, in exchange for God's will for your life your World will be shaken as it never has before. There is no earthly idea, ideology, or thing that compares to the Heavenly plans of God himself. Through surrender, and the giving up of ones freedom we can experience life to the fullest! It says so in God's word! Unlike earthly laws and rights that change like the seasons, God's word remain immovable and unshakable. So I leave you with this: Is your fight for freedom worth it? Is it worth choosing your way, over God's way? Our time on this earth is so short. The freedoms of this life have the power to doom you in the next. I encourage you, choose surrender. There's no one better to surrender to than the Creator of All. Choose life.
