gospel from la fea mas bella
In the worldwide hit" La fea mas bella" one of the supporting charecters mentioned that even though her father had recently passed away-he still spoke to her. What she was not saying was that he was speaking to her like a ghost but she was saying by his words,his example and experiences they shared thats how he spoke to her. This is a reflection of the truth found in the bible:
4By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. ( hebrews 11:4)
The question and the challenge to All of us is this:
what are we teaching our friends,children,strangers,neighbors,fellow workers and bosses and family by our words and actions and silence?
How will they remember us?
and the challenge is this:
To run to Christ and ask for His forgiveness and mercy when we fail
To ask Him for the Grace to live a pleasing life that draws others to Him and
To Thank Him and Him alone when our lives are truly pleasing and drawing others to Him.
