Lente de aumento

Philip Yancey, em seu livro “O Deus invisível” diz que a nossa fé em Jesus é como uma lente de aumento.

Adorei essa figura. Você já teve oportunidade de usar uma lente de aumento? De vez em quando, para ler uma bula ou para enxergar aquelas cláusulas contratuais bem pequenininhas, usamos uma lente de aumento.

A lente de aumento funciona da seguinte maneira: Aquilo que está em foco é totalmente aumentado. O que está em volta fica totalmente distorcido.
Acho engraçado quando pessoas procuram interpretar a sua fé através da cultura ou da sua própria experiência. Não é assim que deve funcionar a nossa fé. Muito pelo contrário. O foco da nossa fé deve ser Jesus. Todas as coisas que estão ao redor devem ser periferia; fazem parte da nossa vida, porém não têm a mesma importância.

Isso implica dizer que a maneira como lidamos com o nosso casamento, com os nossos negócios, com os nossos projetos sempre deve ser de acordo com aquilo que Jesus ensina, pensa ou faria.
Num tempo em que a Igreja Cristã tem focado o seu credo na cultura, cada vez mais a sociedade tem se distanciado da Palavra de Cristo. É por isso que muitas pessoas procuram os gabinetes pastorais perguntando o porquê de Deus ter permitido seus fracassos. A verdade é que Deus já não tem sido o Senhor de suas vidas. Ele só é buscado para abençoá-las, porém não para dirigi-las.
Só há um seguro para nossas vidas: depender exclusivamente de Deus e de Sua Palavra. Se não obedecemos os seus mandamentos, não há nenhuma segurança de que seremos bem sucedidos.

Reflita sobre qual é o foco da sua fé! Se Cristo não é o seu foco, ainda é tempo de mudar.
