Chapter 3 The Third Milestone “P”
Having been preoccupied with the question, “What is the most remarkable loss of all ages?” I inclined to believe of the Adam and Eve’s loss as it is. Because of their disobedience, they have lost Paradise – the beauty of eternal life. Moreover, they lost inexpressible enjoyment of closeness between them and the source of all goodness to men – the Heavenly Father. We can say that this loss was the most painful we are incapable to imagine as well as the agony of Jesus’ cross. After all, the Adam’s fall harmfully affects the human race, you and me, producing suffering, despair and lack of understanding the things essential. If we meditate of this casualties more deeply we won’t miss a point that is about in what way we are expected to response.
As recipients, we habitually give praise our natural benefactors for the things that are insignificant if we compare them with what Christ Jesus has done for us. Shouldn’t we praise our Savior much more for He has returned the lost paradise and eternal bliss to mankind; Just think of what Jesus has done for us; he has saved us from condemnation to Hell; reconciled us with God the Father and today he is working out our salvation diligently as an intercessor before His Father and as a good Shepherd. Frankly, my dear friends, there are not enough rooms in the whole world that could contain all goodness coming to us through Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord!!!
If we are the thankful followers of the Lord Jesus, we cannot be silent on this matter, rather we would continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God that is the fruit of our lips, acknowledging his name, (Heb 13:15). In addition, having such a practice, we’ll certainly please our Lord when we neglect not doing good and sharing what we have, (Heb 13:15).
“Praise, all your people the name so holy of Him who does such wondrous things! All that has being, to praise Him solely, with happy heart its amen sings. Children of God, with angel host praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! Alleluia, alleluia!” (797, v.5, LSB).
And the last, under the title “PPP” we have provided a significant glance that can shape your theological faculty and it is easily to remember for practical purposes.
May God the Father bless all of us who practice peace, please, and praise Him – the four “PPPP” in total.
