For Many are Called, but Few are Chosen.
Jesus Calling Matthew
Colossians 1:24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up those things that are wanting of the sufferings of Christ, in my flesh, for his body, which is the church.
We do our part to fill up those things that are wanting of the sufferings of Christ in our flesh. We sacrifice with Jesus to fill the Body of Christ with souls.
1 Peter 4:13 But if you partake of the sufferings of Christ, rejoice that when his glory shall be revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
Your sacrifices allow you to partake in the sufferings of Christ to help save souls and also to rejoice with exceeding joy.
2 Corinthians 1:7
That our hope for you may be steadfast: knowing that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so shall you be also of the consolation.
One of the greatest consolations on this earth is to see someone who you have been praying and sacrificing converted and brought to the same joy you experience. That has to be the greatest joy on earth. And as Father Ignatius Okoroji said, if you help save a soul you get a drivers license to heaven. This is confirmed especially by James 5:20.
That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable to his death,
We become true images of God though conforming to Jesus' sufferings and death. Sacrifice is dying to self. And rising to Jesus.
2 Corinthians 1:6
Now whether we be in tribulation, it is for your exhortation and salvation: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation: or whether we be exhorted, it is for your exhortation and salvation, which worketh the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer.
We become one with Christ in the Cross.
For I reckon that the sufferings of this time are not worthy to be compared with the glory to come, that shall be revealed in us.
2 Corinthians 1:5
For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us: so also by Christ doth our comfort abound.
Love and sacrifice brings you the peace that surpasses all understanding. You turn all bad news into Good News through your voluntary sacrifice endured. Offer it up to Jesus as a sacrifice for your paralytics.
For the Love of Jesus, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Keep up the Great Work!
