Gift of God - life.
Life is given to us as a gift and as every good gift, the life must be useful, appreciated, loved, respected and honoured.
It also must be understood that apart from the life giver, the God Himself, we have no life to the full. We are existing and trying to do our best living ofthen in despair, depression and never ending feeling of dissatisfaction, seeking fulfilment which is never found.
If we live that means there is a meaning and purpose for that, for nothing on this planet has appeared by chance or accident. Every human being have been created in the image and likeness of God for His glory, and all of us bear His genes and all of us must bear also His Name. and so also for each and every one of us there is a purpose and meaning.
All of us have entered this world not by accident but by the will and knowledge of Sovereign God, the Creator of all this huge universe.
All of us also along with the gift of life have received from Him certain assignments which we must find out and accomplish, otherwise we are depressed and sick even though doctors are not able to find any physical reason for that.
Not only that, but also God has given all people free will to chose good or bad; to chose right or wrong; to chose life or death.
And as every good gift must be useful, so also the gift of Life which God has given to us must be useful, and must not be spend only on ourselves. If we live for ourselves, love only ourselves and do all for ourselves to make ourselves fell better as the modern world teaches, than balance between spirit, soul and body is ruined.
Every human being is created of three parts - the spirit, the soul and the body. Spirit is that who we are. The soul is that what we have - mind, will and emotions. The body is where we are living in.
We all know also that everything what grows and lives and do breathes must be fed with appropriate food.
In human's case the most important food in order to keep up the life to the full, is to feed spirit, than soul, and only than body.
No one is able to live healthy life by feeding soul and body neglecting the spirit; or by feeding body and soul neglecting the spirit. But the most of us are doing so allowing the body and soul to become sick.
No one without God is able to discern the spirit which apart from God is dead. Here comes all humanity's problems. Souls are sick because the Spirit is dead which follows that we are just a walking dead and without life, which God gave to all of us as a great gift to be enjoyed to the full; and when/ if our souls are sick, the body will respond accordingly.
And our sick souls can be healed only by awakening and starting to feed our spirit. Spirit can be awakened only through the Word of God. Our wars in our souls, our never ending longings can be calmed down only by one truth which is found only by finding God.
For from Him we are and to Him we are going.
This short journey here on earth are just a preparation for another life. And God is calling out to all people because He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance, that is turn to Him to have Life to the full.
For only He, the Life Giver is able to heal our souls, and bodies, by giving His Spirit. He gave us life, how we live it, is up to us. We have free will and I urge you to choose right for your sake and sake of your loved ones.
I would be happy to write comforting words and make promises that "everything will be just ok'' if you follow this or that, some "smart" professor or psychiatrist or whoever it may be, formula in order to have satisfied, happy and healthy life, but how can I ,if as long as we live our lives apart from the Life Giver, as long as our spirits are dead, we will experience all this world's emotional sicknesses and diseases which eventually destroys the physical body in which we live.
There always are only two ways to follow. The way of God our Father the Life Giver, or the another way which leads to destruction.
Receive the Spirit by receiving the Christ and after you have received the Christ your Saviour and Life Giver, I pray may God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
