I’m such a selfish person :-[ that this will never become everyday reality to me. I really would like to share what I’ve experienced in my life – that I’ve come from the darkness, from great sorrow, and now travelling heavenwards… slowly, gradually, day by day. That’s a miracle. Life is fantastic. But, as said, I’m too selfish to have this as a ‘goal’ I’ll accomplish someday. I’m just having it here as a reminder, to help myself to keep in mind what should be the most important thing here in ‘pre-life’. And praying strength and words from the Almighty Father…

You are not so selfish that God can’t change it. Believe me, He is doing awesome things in my life right now and changing things about me that have been life-long bad habits/attitudes! Open your heart before Him. Even if it’s only a little at a time. He will change you into what He wants you to be, and we all know that selfish is not what He wants you to be! (Remember what His word says, “God loves a cheerful giver”!
If you’d like to share your faith, you could start right here on this list. Share your faith with others who have this as a goal! You may be the inspiration someone needs to be able to share their faith too:)
Hmmm… my point being that ‘sharing faith’ for me is not a goal as such. Nothing I should ‘complete’ in order to be a ‘better person’. My salvation lies only in Jesus Christ. All the good works (which I do not have many) and power come from Him. From my own side, I do not have any ‘achievements’ or merites to show.
Yes, understood your point. I am work in progress, both wanting and letting God to change me, to give more strength and faith. But I do not think any Christian can ever say ‘I’ve completed this goal and do not need to do it any more’. In my opinion, life is full of trials – it is a development path. We are not making any ‘progress’ to become holier or something like that. From that perspective, I would still argue that for me this is not a ‘goal’ as such. It is more a principle that guides my life – something I can do, but not with my own strength or wisdom. All comes from the Heavenly Father.
I see what you’re saying. From what you originally wrote it sounded as if you doubted that you would be able to share your faith because you felt you were too selfish to ever be able to do so (but we know that we are called to share our faith and that with God all things are possible!) Just wanted to encourage you:)
I agree that we can never mark this goal as completed and finished, not until the day we die. But I do think that we can mark it as something we’ve done, that was worth doing, and that we are going to do again!
