Missing the Point
When the Lord Jesus asked “who do you say that I am?”
The apostles came up with different answers.
They missed the real point, the real answer
And it was Peter who got it right when he professed:
“You are the Messiah the Son of the Living God.
When we approach Jesus, when we pray, may we not miss the real point that
He is the Messiah, the Son of the Living God, The Almighty,
The All Powerful who knows and sees everything we need
and who knows what is best for us.
In our relationships may we not take for granted others and their real need.
That when we help it should be for the others good
That we may always be aware of what is truly needed and what is best to share
Otherwise we miss the point.
May we not deviate from our real point of destination which is heaven
That our lifetime should be a preparation to be with God someday
May we not miss our target in the end which is HEAVEN
Yet even if we miss the point.
Remember! The Lord will never fail us and will never miss the point of helping, protecting us and saving us.
This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.
"Leaps of Faith"
"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
