Faith is not knowledge!

Faith is not the human act of merely consenting to theological knowldge but it is the divine act of submitting both our Intellect and Will to God's revelation. If the Intellect alone is employed, knowledge remains simply as true and good life-giving information. It does not transform our life nor does it give life. Faith without action is dead. Jam 2:26 Will is the faculty of the soul which seeks to love that which is known. And 'loving' is not simply liking the information but the act of becoming what we have come to know. In other words loving is to freely act upon the information in such a way that knowledge becomes a living experience. If I come to know that in order to sustain my life I must drink water and if I do not act on this information and drink water, this knowledge does not do me any good.  In order for my faith to be active and alive, my Will has to be in harmony with the Intellect. It also means both my Intellect and Will should be surrendered to God. The di

Heal, Restore and Rehabilitate

Christ offers healing, restoration and rehabilitation of our body, mind and soul. He will bring it to perfection when He returns in Glory to take us home.

Jesus, the Son of God, became like one of us, except in sin. He took our brokenness, sicknesses and sinfulness upon himself and gave us his perfect body in exchange. He distributes the merit of the the finished work on the cross through the sacraments, especially the Eucharist and Reconciliation - healing, restoring and rehabilitating us. Christ comes to dwell in us. And thus we can say:

It’s no longer I, but Jesus who lives in me. He Heals me, Restores me and Rehabilitates me

During the last supper, breaking the bread, Jesus said, this is my body given up for you, take and eat it. He did the same with his blood. Jesus reminded us that He is the bread from heaven. His is the blood that will be poured out for the remission of our sins. He chose to let his body be mutilated for our sake so that we can be healthy and free from sickness. 

Events that take place around us and the disasters we see in the nature are proportional to the sin that exists in the world. "Change" in human souls, positively or negatively influences the environment and the turn of events. We have been given authority over the nature and all it has. We decide how we want the nature to treat us. The bible says The creation is groaning and is waiting for its redemption along with us [Rom 8:22]

But when man through the gift of faith, believe with his whole heart and accept Jesus the restorer unconditionally, he allows Jesus to transform him by the renewal of his mind [Rom 12:2]. We will then have the mind of Christ [1 Corinthians 2:16]. And thus we can say:

It’s no longer I, but Jesus who lives in me. He Heals me, Restores me and Rehabilitates me

If our heart is not healthy, doubt no longer. Believe that Jesus took your diseased heart and gave his wholesome body in the Eucharistic bread. Don’t we know it is sins that lead to sickness? As we know Jesus’s body knows no sin. No sickness can ever enter His body. We must believe that our heart is now restored and it beats perfectly. Because:

It’s no longer I, but Jesus who lives in me. He Heals me, Restores me and Rehabilitates me

After recieving the Body and Blood of Jesus at the Holy Mass, It should be Jesus himself who walks out of the Church, not me, cause it is:

It’s no longer I, but Jesus who lives in me. He Heals me, Restores me and Rehabilitates me

No event or situation, however worst, harmful, or powerful can do anything to change the course of our life, the divine destiny Jesus has marked out for me, by pouring out his precious blood and paying every single debt the accuser could use against us. We must believe without doubt that this is true. We must not believe in any lie that is contradictory to this Truth. Thus we boldly say:

It’s no longer I, but Jesus who lives in me. He Heals me, Restores me and Rehabilitates me
