01/29/2013 - Enthusiasm as a gift to God

André Soares

 

“This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118: 24

The word enthusiasm comes from the Greek language and means en theos, meaning “in God”. So those who have enthusiasm are filled with the Holy Spirit. And those who are the Spirit, live enthusiastically.

Just as faith, living with this excitement of the soul depends on constant search and decision. It is an easy task when we remember that there are many reasons to rejoice. There is the joy of eternal life in Jesus Christ, the certainty that Satan has been defeated and the promise of prosperity in all areas (John 10:10). Therefore, brethren, whatever you do, do it enthusiastically!

When going through a struggle, can you imagine how you will feel when achieving victory? Live with this emotion as if you have already achieved it! In addition to taking possession of the blessing, this is a way to live your days to the fullest, turning them into offerings of gratitude to God for the privilege of life.

“For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 14:17).
