Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Have you ever wondered if you’re a whole person? Do you even understand what being a whole person is? Have you ever struggled with being perfect, now that you’re a Believer? Of course, we’ll never be perfect (only Jesus was perfect). We will always struggle with sin until the day we die. It’s just that, well, as Believers, life is much more harder for us than those who are of this world. We all have struggles in life that could make us feel incomplete, but the apostle Paul says we can be “filled up to all the fullness of God”. So, what does being a whole person look like?
A “whole person” is generally satisfied with life. He or she feels loved and is able to love others in return. Difficulties and hardship don’t devastate him or her, because he or she is able to go through them with confidence in God. He or she isn’t a complainer or someone who is quick to blame others. A positive attitude guards his or her mind since he or she knows that the Lord will work everything out for good (Romans 8:28).
Being a Christian doesn’t automatically make us feel complete. Fullness comes only when we experience God’s love for us. So, continue fighting for the good cause. Continue sharing your faith and plant those seeds. Remember, everything that you do for God’s cause never goes unnoticed for the God of Israel sees everything. “But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” (2 Chronicles 15:7)
