What do I have to do?

Hi everyone, today I make this question: what do you have to do?

Maybe, you work or study, but I remake the question: what do you have to do?

If I said that God's will is what you have to do? Do you believe it? Do you believe that God has plans for your life?

I say: God plans your salvation, and, more, your sanctity.

But, what does God want for me? (Is it your question now?)

Isaiah said (Isaiah 61, 1-3):

"The spirit of Lord Yahweh is on me
for Yahweh has anointed me.
He has sent me to bring the news to the afflicted,
to soothe the broken-hearted,
to proclaim liberty to captives,
release to those in prison,
to proclaim a year of favour from Yahweh
and a day of vengeance for our God,
to comfort all who mourn (to give to Zion's mourners),
to give them for ashes a garland,
for mourning-dress, the oil of gladness, for despondency, festal attire;
and they will be called 'terebinths of saving justice',
planted by Yahweh to glorify him."

In Luke 4, 14-20, we read about Jesus:

"Jesus, with the power of the Spirit in him,
returned to Galilee;
and his reputation spread throughout the countryside.
He taught in their synagogues and everyone glorified him.
He came to Nazara, where he had been brought up,
and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day as he usually did.
He stood up to read,
and they handed him the scroll of the prophet Isaiah.
Unrolling the scroll he found the place where it is written:
The spirit of the Lord is on me,
for he has anointed me to bring the good news to the afflicted.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives,
sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free,
to proclaim a year of favour from the Lord.
He then rolled up the scroll,
gave it back to the assistant and sat down.
And all eyes in the synagogue were fixed on him."

God sent Jesus for save and free us. Today, we are slaves of the money, the power, the views of the others, the sins, the pleasures, and ourselves.

We should accept the salvation that Jesus gives for us.

Let's read Psalms 123:

"[Song of Ascents] I lift up my eyes to you
who are enthroned in heaven.
Just as the eyes of slaves are on their masters' hand,
or the eyes of a slave-girl on the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes are on Yahweh our God,
for him to take pity on us.
Have pity on us, Yahweh,
have pity, for we have had our full share of scorn,
more than our share of jeers from the complacent.
(Scorn is for the proud.)"

God bless you and your family in Jesus and Mary.

If you want, I can help you. We can listen what God wants for you, but you need to want it.
