True stories of my interactions with the Lord through the blood of Jesus Christ.
As the Bible says, I am already saved (Rom. 8:24, Eph. 2:5–8), but I’m also being saved (1 Cor. 1:18, 2 Cor. 2:15, Phil. 2:12), and I have the hope that I will be saved (Rom. 5:9–10, 1 Cor. 3:12–15). Like the apostle Paul I am working out my salvation in fear and trembling (Phil. 2:12), with hopeful confidence in the promises of Christ (Rom. 5:2, 2 Tim. 2:11–13)
My wife and I go to daily mass and listen to the scriptures every day. If we were to go to mass for three years everyday, we would have listened to the entire Bible. We listen to the Old/New Testament, the Psalms, the New Testament (a second reading for Sundays and special days), and the Gospels. We are so blessed to be able to hear the word of God every day and to be able to reflect on those words.
Not only do we get to hear the word of God every day with thousands of Catholics around the world. We also get to take communion with them too! Our lives are so blessed we all get to experience the same thing with other Christians in the entire world every day. Now, that's the unity that all Christians should have and we experience that common bond with Christians around the world every day. And, we can discuss the readings with other Catholics around the world if they have read it, reflected on it, and mediated on it for that day.
It is wonderful to be part of a church, but more wonderful to be a part of God's Kingdom. Praise the Lord for His Church.
