Learn how to write!
A lot of people have a hard time writing, and that’s normal, as we have different skills in this world. However, if we do not have the ability to put our ideas and opinions into a text, this cannot be a justification for ceasing to be the writers of our soul. Because this is the challenge God proposes: that we come to write His Teachings within us.
This book is unique, can only be written by us, so it is a personal and non-transferable task, because for its construction are not used sheets of paper, but the tablets of our heart.
Just as God in the past wrote the first tablets of the Law and gave them to Moses, He today wants us to have recorded His instructions of Life within us so that His guidance will not be lost.
When the Word does not abide in man, he yields to the tempting proposals of sin that come all the time. So King David said at one point, “I have hidden Your Word in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee.” (Psalm 119.11)
The heart that has not engraved the Word of God lives governed by the feelings, emotions, and various pains that life imposes. In this way, sometimes its owner will feel strong and excited, sometimes weak and discouraged, sometimes understood and loved, but sometimes misunderstood and wronged… Precisely because the heart beats and oscillates multiple sensations at all times.
And it was because of forgetting God’s Word that the people of Judah were delivered into the Babylonian captivity. Although, the prophets warned so often about the spiritual decay of the time.
“The sin of Judah is written with a diamond-tipped iron pointer engraved on the tablet of his heart and on the tips of your altars.” (Jeremiah 17.1)
The inclination to betray, deceive, lie, or prostitute was so deeply ingrained within the people that God said those desires were written with a diamond-tipped iron pen.
What a hard heart they had, didn’t they? This is because these materials cited in the text are used to work on the hardest surfaces that exist.
So the problem of sin and the desire to do what is bad is not simply a failure or a weakness, as some people think.
Sin is a state of rebellion against God. It consists in the refusal of the human being to live submissive to the Will of its Creator. It is a subversive behavior to the Laws that were established by Him.
We can say that sin has disastrous consequences for those who commit it and, furthermore, leaves marks on the soul that only the Blood of the Lord Jesus can erase.
See, then, that our life is our book, and we are all building our eternal biography, just as men and women of the Bible did in the past. Each day can be a well-written and readable page for anyone who wants to read and learn, but it can also have a record of shame and disobedience. Each decides for himself.
But we must not forget: one day in eternity (soon to come!) God will read aloud the story we have written for all to hear.
Let us think, then, with fear and trembling, of this final outcome which the Almighty will give to our biography through the record we have made ourselves.
