saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Acts 2:40- Save Yourselves From This Perverse Generation

 Acts 2:40- Save Yourselves From This Perverse Generation
By: Eric Gajewski
 Acts 2: 40  Save yourselves from this perverse generation.

Brethren, the hour is late in the day, therefore, do not delay putting off your salvation.  We see we are being surrounded on every side with uncleanliness and ungodliness.  We see the quarrels and disputes even amongst those of his own.  We see so many blind as to the hour we live in.  Some notice but do not care.  Some notice and make no amendment.  You are the only one who can control your own actions.  Thus, apply all of your time into pleasing God and turning form the world.  Save yourself.  And if you would be so willing to follow in the Ways of Selfless Love do your best to make reparation for the conversion of sinners. 

We are truly living in the endtimes, the Days of Lot, wherein just a FEW were granted “leave” yet one looked behind and was turned to a pillar of salt.  Do not look back at this world but look ahead to the next.  Move from one act of the heart to the next; one prayer to the next.  Do not be busied with idle talk nor the latest goings on around the world.  What will it profit a man to see the whole world with his carnal eye and lose his eternal soul for failing to keep his inner eye on the next?  We are in exile this is true but there are some who would rather enjoy the scenery of this life than to devote themselves to prayer in preparation for the next.  Save yourselves.

The path to union is laced with pain.  This is undeniable for the Cross is the only way.  From one Cross to the next we move.  But if your heart is intentioned on pleasing God then your heart will expand and love to suffer.  It wont look to run from the Cross but rather to unite it to the Cross.  Tests, trials and tribulations; the 3 T’s are our foundation to a life of spiritual growth.  In all of these we must unite our wills to His.  Anxiety often due to impatience and fear due to a love of self.  In the Book of Acts we see this calling out to save one self from a perverse generation.  The same cry can be heard from heaven today.  Do not fall due to wandering eyes and curiosity.  Keep on the narrow path of pain which is leading you to true security.  Seek to hide behind Christ is union rather than hiding behind pride and excuses as to why you will not embrace the Cross.

He saved others but couldn’t save Himself.  Do not be a faithless Jew and echo these same words.  Christ was Selfless and wanted to give Himself up for us but will we do the same for Him?  Can we make little acts of love daily which can then grow into bigger ones?  The model has been laid down for us.  The path is hard to find especially in our perverse generation.  It is one with will end with the Hand of God demonstrating to the world that He is in control not man.  In the end, save yourselves first my good friends before attempting to try and save another.  For you cannot truly give what is first not had nor can you help another without walking first this path of Pain.  From self to the Sacred Heart.  Where are you on this timeline of charity?  Every eagle must learn to love silence and solitude for you must turn from man and the world before ever hearing the whisperings of God.  Let us all pray for the grace to have our inner eyes open at all times, Amen
