Are you a caterpillar?
Why is it so hard for many to be a Christian, obey the rules of a Christian lifestyle and practice what the Lord Jesus taught?
Itʼs as if a caterpillar wanted to fly.
Itʼs simply impossible for a caterpillar to fly. You can throw the caterpillar up into the air, but it would just fall right back down. But when a caterpillar enters the cocoon, it stays there for some time to change, and then no one will have to throw it up into the air.
The same creature that dragged itself on the ground can now fly on its own. With its new form, the ex-caterpillar, which is now a butterfly, brings joy wherever it goes. Actually, they bring life and make gardens even more beautiful, and many are happy to have them around. The same happens with us!
Every day the Lord “throws people up into the air” with words of faith, with uplifting messages through the radio, TV, Internet, etc, yet many have not been able to fly on their own. The Fast of Daniel is an opportunity for everyone. May each person be made New through the Holy Spirit.
May you receive “spiritual wings”, so you will be able to fly on their own. You will become new men and women, turn the other cheek, go the extra mile, repay evil with good, be the light of the world… And because of your new nature, a Christian life won’t be a burden but one full of joy. It will be natural for you to forgive, overlook any offenses, always tell the truth, be faithful to God, have a humble heart, love your neighbor, serve everyone, and become a soul winner.
May you stop dragging yourself and come to fly after this Fast of Daniel!
God bless you greatly!
