Chamados a fim... x Estamos a fim?



"Vós, porém, sois raça eleita, sacerdócio real, nação santa, povo de propriedade exclusiva de Deus, a fim de proclamardes as virtudes daquele que vos chamou das trevas para a sua maravilhosa luz." 1a Pedro 2:9

Este texto define a Igreja de Deus como um povo especial, marcado pela bênção da eleição do Senhor. Em sua soberania, o Pai nos escolheu e chamou, tirando-nos da condenação eterna e nos transportando para o Reino do seu Filho, Jesus, por meio do qual recebemos VIDA.

A questao é: para quê, ou a fim de quê, fomos chamados?

Nossa geração é marcada pelo senhorio da vontade própria e individual. Cada pessoa só faz aquilo que quer, o que sente vontade, o que dá na telha. Ninguém se doa, ninguém cede, ninguém obedece, ninguém serve. Vivemos a geração "Eu quero, eu posso, eu faço."

Essa é uma das razões para a enorme quantidade de divórcios. Dois reizinhos unem-se e são incapazes de comungar interesses. Não conseguem abrir mão de nada para alegrarem-se mutuamente. Suas vontades e seus caprichos precisam ser atendidos. Não admitem o princípio biblico do papel de sacerdote e cabeça a ser exercido pelo marido. Querem uma relação de independência entre marido e mulher. A união é apenas física, mas não emocional, nem financeira e muito menos espiritual.

Deus chama os seus escolhidos para uma VIDA diferente, marcada pela obediência, pelo serviço e pela submissão. Não estamos neste mundo para satisfazer nossas vontades e nossos caprichos. Devemos obediência àquele que nos resgatou da morte e chamou para a vida. O senhorio do EU em nós foi substituído pelo senhorio de Cristo. O reizinho que havia em nós deu lugar ao escravo.

Não mais fazemos o que nosso coração parece querer ou estar a fim. Fazemos o que Cristo manda. O curioso é que, quanto mais o obedecemos, mesmo às vezes sem muita vontade, aprendemos a amar seus mandamentos e a desejar obedecê-los. Esse passa a ser nosso prazer, nossa alegria.

Portanto, se você, daqui para a frente, nao estiver muito a fim de fazer algo para Deus, ou se sua carne estiver muito a fim de contrariar a vontade de Jesus para a sua vida, lembre-se: o único "a fim" que interessa é o que nos define. Fomos chamados a fim de proclamarmos as virtudes de Deus. Anuncie a salvação recebida e viva a fim de glorificar o nome do Senhor. Eu tô a fim, e você?

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has
83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

LED line lights have also become hugely popular for household usage.
Implementation of solar energy has environmental costs that may hamper
its application on large-scale operations to reduce its impact.
The LED light provides more light and less energy use.
