IN our lifestyle there is
a fear that is acceptable. The problem with fear and fear is when they dominate
us, govern us, and even paralyze us. The fear that is acceptable is the one
whose influence in us leads us to respect and love God; Other acceptable fears
are those that we demonstrate after experiencing a shock or an emotion so
intense that they make us speak even things that seem to make no sense, for
example when a lost person appears and immediately begins to narrate a number
of lived stories, many of them, fantasies, but because of his trauma and
imagination, he simply says them. In the Christian life, we will begin to live
supernatural experiences, because the Holy Spirit allows us to live them. The
problem is when you want to tell them to others, many times they will take us
for crazy and they will not understand us.
“Then Peter said to Jesus: Teacher, it is good
for us that we are here; and let's make three shelters, one for you, one for
Moses, and one for Elijah”.
Mark 9. 5
This story was so real
to the Apostle Peter that the Synoptic Gospels reflected it. How many times has
Peter preached it? It is a very overwhelming vision, to see Jesus Christ in
glory and majesty, accompanied by Elijah and Moses, this is unparalleled.
Imagine for a moment the three world leaders that we admire, regardless of the
field of work they occupy, and they appear to us on the road and are walking
alongside us, what fear of admiration would we have over them? Wouldn't we
continue that path with these leaders?
"Because he didn't know what he was talking
about, because they were scared."
Mark 8. 6
Ekphobos is the Greek
word used in this verse for fear and is defined as being terrified to the bone.
Fear reaches down to our bones. And here we manage to measure how emotional the
Apostle was in the face of the spiritual manifestations given in the Christian
faith. We see Peter's innocence of mind and the kinds of occurrences that are
only said in the mind of a person without evil or wickedness. The Apostle was
always ready to be used by the Holy Spirit; remember that a few days before, he
was the one who declared that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ and the Messiah;
This statement led Jesus Christ to confess that Peter was clearly guided by the
Spirit of God. In the same way, this type of fear is acceptable in us, one that
by the clear influence and manifestation of the Holy Spirit, we say and act
with reverence before God and human beings. A type of fear that makes us reach
out and yearn to always live accompanied by Jesus Christ and the powerful
manifestation of the kingdom of heaven. Let us live this lifestyle today. Let
us live the living God that is within us.
God bless you.
FEARED TO THE BONES
God bless you and bring
revelation into your life of the Mind of Christ that is already in you.
