Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ gave to us in the Bible-the Word of God, the only possible solution for the difficulties in our everyday life “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” Matthew 12:33 (NIV)
My dear brethren, the mission Maran atha is a spiritual journey to all, particularly to you who are in difficulties in your lives, who have some kind of problems, who stay awake during the nights because you can not sleep well, all of you who have some kind of illness or health weakness, probably you can not find a proper job or even any job at all, all who have marital problems, maybe you are passing a divorce period in your life, or you are in a financial need because of different reasons, without certain future or simply said without peace in your minds, peace that is like a quite sea, windless air or perfect silence. Can you just for a second imagine all this? Can you think for a while if that is possible at all? Or…
Yes, my friend, it is possible to be achieved, it is possible to find out a way of living that will bring you to a peaceful mind, life. With such a peaceful way of existence you can be also sure for your future, you can have certain and secure days during your life and promising solution for difficult life situations you are possibly in at present.
Everyone would like to ask, what the cure for all life difficulties is.
I would not discuss the reasons for such life burdens. I don’t like to deal with past and all circumstances that led you to that bad situation in your life. But, I would like to successfully approach the possible solutions for lightening the tunnel you are passing through now.
The only reliable, promising solution is the name of Jesus Christ. He is the one who can carry our life burdens. He is on our disposal to carry the burden of life for us.
That is why He invites us in the Bible, “Come to me…and I will give you a rest”, peace, rest, my friends, that is going to be given by our Lord, not rest as it is given by the world nowadays. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives…” John 14:27(NIV) “The way of peace they don’t know” Isaiah 59:8(NIV)
What else is necessary to convince us that we cannot live without peace from the Lord? That peace is something that we cannot understand immediately, but we must believe and accept it by faith. “And peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:7(NIV)
This kind of peace in our minds and our hearts is God’s given gift to everyone who believes in it, to everyone who accepts it by faith. “The Lord of peace himself gives you peace…” 2 Timothy 3:16(NIV). And we really need it, we really desire that condition of quiet sea and windless air in our lives. Because, “A heart at peace gives life to the body” Proverbs 14:30(NIV)
