Adoration ministry is about transforming by beholding.Fr.Mbaka says that those who continually present themselves to the Lord will be transformed by the experience of beholding Him, who is ,the Alpha and Omega.One of the best ways we can do this is to visit the Lord in the blessed sacrament on a regular basis.Regular adoration every Wednesday at the adoration grounds Enugu is one way to do it.If you are too far to go every Wednesday read “adoration outside adoration grounds “to know what to do next.Other ideas on what to do are welcome.
St.Paul on his road to Damascus was transformed by beholding.Acts 9:3-6 ” On his journey,as he was nearing Damascus,a light from the sky suddenly flashed around him.He fell to the ground…………..Now get up and go into the city and you will be told what you must do.” Paul ,then Saul got up and did as he was told.One of the steps to transformation while beholding the Lord is submission to the will of God.
According to Fulton Sheen “The God responsive soul thinks of religion in terms of submission to the will of God.He does not look to the infinite to help him in his infinite interests,but rather seeks to surrender his finite interests to the infinite.No longer interested in using God he wants God to use him.Like Paul after his encounter with the Lord he or she asks,”What will you have me do ,O Lord?”
Today as friends of adoration we have to ask our selves what steps are we taking to adore God and submit our selves to the will of God.Each person should share with others what has worked for them in the past.One of my friends said that he anchored his adoration of the Lord by saying “Jesus,I love you ,help me remove the shadows in my life today”,each time he got into his car or got to a “Stop” sign on the road.
Another friend me told me that he always invited Love into his life because he was sure that if he welcomed love into his life,success and wealth would follow.Awesome!!Can you imagine that?
A third friend told me ,he tried to imagine that he was always in adoration all the time.You know how when you are in Church you swallow some responses because you are in Church.Well,this friend of mine kept it up for the rest of the day and found out it was good for the peace of his soul
and the health of his body.
It is well!!.Please read and share your thoughts.
