The Need for Ongoing Conversion
(Keep Moving to God)
"We have no right to rest as long as a single soul is satan's slave." (St. Maximillian Kolbe)
My brothers, seeking God and our salvation does not end at the time of our conversions or when we finish the Four Men Boot Camp, but continues throughout our lives. We must try to get to know and love God each day more and more. We need to ask for all the graces necessary for our state in life to love HIM with all of heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves. We need to do the Will of Our Father in Heaven. He wills for all of us to be saved. We must acquire a hatred for sin. and pray for the graces necessary to avoid sin. We need to use the sacrament of reconciliation often. We must desire to please God in every way we can. We need to strive to enhance daily our personal relationship with the living God (Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit) this is the absolute most important thing we can do, everything else is secondary. "Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near." (Isa. 55:6). Do we realize that we actually have a command to seek God? To seek God must be our most glorious and rewarding assignment in our lives. The primary purpose God allows any of us to be born here on earth is to please and glorify Him. We can please and glorify Our Lord by helping our brothers and sisters save their souls by prayer and sacrifice as well as our own. God makes some promises to those who seek him. The Bible says, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled" (Matt. 5:6). We read that those who seek God will not lack (Psa. 34:10); and that they will rejoice (1 Chron. 16:10). Let us do everything with God, for God and in God.
We are also assured that seekers will find. God says, "Ask, and it will be given you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you" (Matt. 7:7). We are encouraged to seek the Lord like we would seek great treasure: "and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God" (Prov. 2:4-5). Perhaps best of all, God promises a revival for those who seek Him. He says, "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land" (2 Chron. 7:14). Trust in Him because everything is possible if we believe in Him. It is that simple, my brothers, the first thing we must do in order to save our souls and the souls of our neighbors is to seek God above all things.
Let us start to do the Will of Our Father in Heaven and start to work for the Kingdom of God. “He saith to his disciples, The harvest indeed is great, but the laborers are few.” (Matthew 9:37).
Give yourselves entirely to God and He will in exchange bestow on you everything you need without reserve. My brothers give glory to Our Heavenly Father by seeking Him first always in all things and at all times without reserve and He will take care of you.
Keep up the Great Work!
