But how do we remove the pride and ego that blinds us from God’s grace? Well, it comes from accepting that Jesus is the only way to live, and that without him we will die of hunger and thirst (John 6:52-59). Just as our physical body requires nourishments to survive, our spiritual body requires the same satiation needed to nurture our faith. Christ advises us to accept his body and blood in an emotional, mental and most importantly, spiritual sense. To fully accept his body and blood is to know and ultimately believe that we are weak and defenseless by ourselves. Men alone cannot save themselves, but only through the love of God. When we can come to terms with our imperfections and tell God that, “I am nowhere near perfect, but that is okay because you love me no matter what,” then we can truly begin to live for the perfect and wonderful purpose that is Christ. Praise to the Lord, not because we are filled with flaws and weaknesses, but because we are the only beings created in the pure image of God. To the people reading this devotion, you are all wonderful, beautiful and amazing. No matter if you are in the depressions or the “highs” of your lives, know that you will always be taken care of. God may use the mysterious and the unknown to make wonders out of your life. All you have to do is to open your eyes and look within your heart. Peace be with you all.
