FELIZ NATAL!

Queridos amigos,

 Sei que a maioria de nós está no tradicional corre-corre de véspera de natal, de férias, de projetos missionários. Enfim, de  qualquer maneira, todos nós corremos por uma mesma causa, ou melhor, uma mesma Pessoa. 

Quero agradecer por sua perseverança e serviço ao longo deste ano. Sei que Deus nos reserva novos desafios para o próximo. Minha oração (e profundo desejo) é que continuemos perseverando, seja qual for a parte do trabalho que nos cabe neste Movimento, pois eu realmente acredito que “no Senhor nosso trabalho não é vão”. 

Imagino que a esta altura vocess já receberam, no mínimo, 457 mensagens de Natal na sua caixa de email e centenas daqueles scraps reluzentes no Orkut. E isso ano após ano. Duvido que eu consiga dizer alguma novidade. Quando eu era pequeno, o Natal demorava mais pra chegar e parecia menos banal. Eu não recebia emails, sms nem scraps (nem precisa dizer que nada disso existia na minha infância – provavelmente, nem na sua). Era uma celebração restrita à família, vizinhos e à Turma da Mônica que era exibida na TV.

O real sentido do Natal comecei a entender depois de grande, e ainda não terminei. Hoje, a primeira coisa que me vem à cabeça quando penso em Natal é “Deus amou o mundo de tal maneira que deu seu Filho Unigênito…”. Esse lembrete cíclico do amor de Deus ao mundo me leva a crer que tenho sido chamado para ajudar tantas pessoas quanto possível a entender o real sentido do Natal. E é um privilégio ser parte disso com vocês. A todos amigos, mantenedores, intercessores, parceiros,

Feliz Natal!

CARTA DE UM UNIVERSITÁRIO DO RIO DE JANEIRO

Olá, meu nome é Gabriel. Toda semana nos reunimos para buscar a Deus em nossa universidade, mas no mesmo prédio, estudantes se reúnem para usar drogas. Um dia, resolvemos nos aproximar deles e ficamos conversando e cantando algumas músicas juntos. Um dos rapazes, o André, se tornou nosso amigo e começou a frequentar a igreja conosco.

Ele hoje está firme com Jesus e tem lutado para não se envolver mais com as drogas. Ele, às vezes, até nos pede para buscá-lo na estação de trem para não passar sozinho pelo bar ao lado de nossa universidade. André veio da Bahia estudar Medicina no Rio de Janeiro, mas Deus realizou muito mais na vida dele. Louvamos ao Senhor!

Gabriel é estudante envolvido com o Movimento Alfa e Omega no Rio de Janeiro

É TEMPO DE “MOSTRARNOS”

O dia mundial de oração foi muito significativo para mim. No final do dia, eu tinha uma hora livre antes de um jantar, então eu comecei a refletir sobre o dia. Rapidamente eu estava imerso em meus pensamentos.

O que parecia chamar minha atenção foi um vídeo que assistimos, onde um membro da equipe da Universidade da Florida interagia com estudantes líderes envolvidos naquele campus. Eles viram um resultado fenomenal neste fim de ano. Cerca de 1.100 estudantes foram na primeira reunião semanal, e mais de 650 se envolveram nos encontros de discipulado. Em resposta a questão, “Qual é o segredo do sucesso?” Eles disseram: “Deus apenas se revelou!” Eles simplesmente admitiram que o nível dos resultados estava bem além do que seus esforços e preparação poderia explicar.

Eu pensei: “É isso que eu oro para que seja verdade em todas as atividades da CEPC – que Deus apenas se revele.” Certamente nós devemos buscar desenvolver e utilizar as melhores estratégias, treinamento e materiais possíveis. Dessa forma devemos nos esforçar. Mas a conclusão é que devemos orar e confiar em Deus que Ele se mostre com sua sabedoria sobrenatural e seu poder.

Esta não é uma idéia nova. Por exemplo, algumas semanas depois de ser convidado pelo comitê de diretores da Cruzada Estudantil para eu fiquei estarrecido pela impossibilidade da tarefa. A Cruzada Estudantil é muito complexa e abrangente. E Bill Bright delimitou padrões muito altos para aqueles que se envolvem com a liderança no ministério.

Apesar de tudo, o que Deus me mostrou foi a absoluta simplicidade do que eu precisava fazer na minha nova posição: Caminhar intimamente com Ele e fazer o que Ele me mandar fazer. Agora, isso se mostrou desafiador de se fazer de maneira plena, mas é muito simples de entender.

No conhecido versículo, Efésios 2:10, percebemos um pouco as intenções de Deus: “Porque somos feitura sua, criados em Cristo Jesus para as boas obras, as quais Deus preparou para que andássemos nelas.” Em outras palavras, é o plano de Deus se revelar. Ele intencionalmente nos criou para boas obras. Ele até mesmo fez uma sólida preparação e provisão para que isso aconteça. E acima de tudo isso, Ele nos formou criativa e supernaturalmente para que possamos ser parte dessas boas obras.

Então, qual é o problema? Por que nem todos esses planos pré-concebidos de Deus acontecem? Algumas vezes é porque nós não nos “revelamos.”  

CAMINHANDO COM DEUS

A palavra de Deus é clara. Para termos sua benção precisamos caminhar com Ele. Por exemplo em 1 Pedro 3:7, é dito que marido que não valorizar sua esposa tem suas orações impedidas. Mesmo assim, como é fácil não se “mostrar” em nossa caminhada com Deus. Algumas vezes acontece simplesmente por causa de distrações. Temos tanto o que fazer dia após dia, que é muito fácil nosso tempo devocional se tornar curto demais. Ou pior, nós podemos passar o dia sem se aproximar de Deus. É totalmente possível estar tão concentrado em uma reunião que nós nem notamos a presença de Deus ali.

FAZER O QUE ELE NOS MANDA FAZER

Outra maneira de não nos “mostrarnos” é não fazer o que Ele nos manda fazer. Algum tempo atrás eu estava conversando com uma pessoa que estava se aposentando. Ele estava pensando em se voluntariar em tempo integral para a Cruzada Estudantil. Eu perguntei a ele porque. Ele me disse que era porque ele acreditava que Deus o estava chamando para a obra cristã em tempo integral. Eu perguntei para ele quando foi que ele recebeu esse chamado pela primeira vez. Ele disse que foi quando ele era jovem.

Eu fiquei muito triste por ele. Por 40 anos ele escolheu não fazer o que Deus o chamou  para fazer. Sabemos que nem todos tem esse chamado. Mas ele sabia que havia resistido ao chamado. Me pergunto quantas boas obras Deus preparou para ele fazer e não foram feitas.

Esta mesma tendência pode surgir em nossas atividades diárias. Nós sentimos que Deus quer que façamos alguma coisa, mas nós não queremos fazer. Então continuamos a procrastinar. Ou então nós não fazemos algo que é muito claro na palavra de Deus, por exemplo, muitas vezes eu tive que encorajar insistentemente uma pessoa a pedir perdão a outra.

APLICAÇÃO

Todos nós queremos que Deus “se mostre”. Mas frequentemente não estamos dispostos a fazer o mesmo. Enquanto fizer suas atividades pelos próximos dias, pergunte-se frequentemente:

1. Estou caminhando intimamente com Deus?
2. Estou fazendo o que acredito que Ele me mandou fazer?
3. Estou depositando toda minha fé nEle, e não em mim mesmo, para os resultados?
