To become perfect

We can approach truth with words and concepts, but really to know it we have to experience it. Truth is like a symphony whose beauty we cannot appreciate without learning how to read, play and sing. The word of God is such a symphony: “Let my tongue sing of thy word, for all thy commandments are righteousness” (Psalm 119:172). When many people surround us, we realize that we are pretty insignificant. But amid this crowd, where everyone is “nothing”, we feel deep in our heart that we have a mission in this world. Of course, our thoughts are not God’s thoughts (Isaiah 55:8).

Security and insecurity

Vanity of vanities! All is vanity! What advantage does man have in all his work which he does under the sun? (Ecclesiastes 1:2-3)
Having described his life, his successes, his mistakes and his disappointments, King Solomon concludes the whole matter: “Fear God and keep his commandments, because this applies to every person” (Ecclesiastes 12:13). Who wants to express himself to be sovereign and necessary chooses freely to do what God recommends.

Taught by Him

You did not learn Christ in this way, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, just as truth is in Jesus, that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit. (Ephesians 4:20-22)
