How can we serve for the coming of the Kingdom of God?
One of the great difficulties of the modern man is accepting that the world belongs to God. Secularism does not always mean atheism, indeed there are many who accept the idea of a transcendent, invisible world; but it becomes difficult to come to terms with this reality, just when we speak of a God who wants to guide us to live better on this earth "Submission" to his will is also experienced by many believers almost as a burden. Respect for the moral principles that come from the Bible has become the object of free interpretation, so that the commandments and precepts of the Lord prevail - even among believers - the "in my opinion" or the concept of a democratic ethic: "everyone does it, so it's not wrong". Faith asks us to know how to look beyond, how to overcome the limited walls of our egos by looking at the world as a wonderful gift from God. “Oh Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” (Sal. 1,8).
