FAITH ALIVE

IN ALL THINGS GOD WORKS FOR THE GOOD

(Rom 8:28, 2 Sam 22:31)

A king who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who, in all circumstances, said: My king, do not be discouraged, because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes!

One day they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the king. His slave managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent his majesty losing a finger.

Furious and without showing his gratitude for being saved, the king said

“Is God good? If He was good, I would not have been attacked and lost my finger.”

The slave replied:

“My king, despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good, and he knows “why” of all these things. What God does is perfect. He is never wrong!”

Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his slave.

Later, he left for another hunt and was captured by savages who made human sacrifices.

In the altar, ready to sacrifice the King, the savages found that the victim had not one of his fingers, so he was released. According to them, it was not so complete to be offered to the gods.

Upon his return to the palace, he authorized the release of his slave that he received very affectionately and said -

“My dear, God was really good to me! I was almost killed by the wild men, but for lack of a single finger, I was let go!

But I have a question: if God is so good, why did he allow me to put you in jail?”

The slave replied -

“My King, if I had gone with you in this hunt, I would have been sacrificed for you, because I have no missing finger, therefore, remember everything God does is perfect. He is never wrong.”

Often we complain about life, and negative things that happen to us, forgetting that nothing is random and that everything has a purpose.

Every morning, offer your day to God, don’t be in a rush.

Ask God to inspire your thoughts, guide your actions, and ease your feelings. And do not be afraid. God is never wrong!

You know why this message is for you? I do not know, but God knows, because he never makes mistakes…….

The path of God and His Word is perfect, without impurities.

2 Samuel 22:31 says, He is the way for all those who trust in Him (2 Samuel 22: 31 “As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him).

Trust in God! God is never wrong!

Distance Education Programme in Theology (DEPTh)

In a world of knowledge explosion the need to update the fundamentals of one’s faith life has become a necessity. Men and women from different walks of life express the desire to enrich their faith life in consonance with the contemporary world and its challenges. The study of theology – seen till recently as meant only for the clergy or the religious – is becoming more popular with the lay faithful who see it as a right as well as a duty emerging from their Christian vocation. Distance Education Programme in Theology (DEPTh) is an attempt to respond to this quest, and is designed as a life-enrichment course in the Indian/Asian context.

The Jesuit-run Vidyajyoti College of Theology, Delhi, has been in the field of theological education for a century and a half. True to its name ‘Vidyajyoti’ (light of knowledge) aims at spreading the light of theology far and wide. The Second Vatican Council had a dream when it wrote: “Let the laity, therefore, diligently apply themselves to a more profound knowledge of revealed truth…” (LG, 35). Sharing in the same dream Vidyajyoti has initiated the new Distance Education Programme in Theology (DEPTh) primarily for the lay faithful. It welcomes all who desire to deepen their Christian faith, and search for avenues of deeper participation in the mission of the Church.
