This is the Mercy part two. For previous posts of the Mercy please click the followings:
Today I was reading Matthew 7 and I think there are two verses that fully describe how we can have a close and fruitful relationship with God:
- Matthew 22:37, “Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”
- Matthew 7:21, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”
I will focus my writing on the second part of our relationship with God, namely how we do the will of our Father who is in heaven.
If you had read my previous posts on the Mercy, you may know the followings:
- God has mercy on me so that He chooses me to do His will on earth, so that I can share the happiness when His will is done, and
- God has mercy on me so that He gives me unconditional love and gifts to do His will on earth, again to share the joyfulness when His will is done.
This morning I had dreamed of seeing visions of pieces of jigsaw puzzles for 14 times. Yes, it’s true, I kept on seeing the puzzles for 14 times. This is a confirmation reminder that I am not only a spectator, but an active participant in doing God’s will on earth. He is telling me that I have a special role in His will, and today is truly a celebrating moment, privately, between me and Him, mostly because I had made a decision yesterday, and that decision was one of integrity, and commitment for my whole self to uphold justice, to give myself fully for every Christians around me in order to facilitate their missions of spreading the gospel. I have only read around 10% of the Bible and I am still far from being ripe to spread the Good News, but I know currently my role is to make sure people around me can do spread the gospel and I am willing to sacrifice myself in order that their missions will continue. Perhaps because of my commitment, and my decision had really touched God, and so He gave me these 14 dreams today to give me an affirmation. How joyful is to know that I am working for God, and to fulfill Matthew 7:21: “only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”
To conclude, He has shown Mercy on me by allowing me to do His will on earth, He reminded me of my important role, and He constantly, and continuously communicate the roads and journeys to me through dreams, and giving me the SUPPORT to motivate and give me enthusiasm to do His will. I am proud to consider I am one of the lucky persons in the world. All glories and gratitude are to God, who gives me the Mercy.
