Ježíš


He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

THE LIFE STORY THAT´ S WORTH IT

Ondřej Rozkopal

In the morning I got up and went to school, in the evening I took a couple of hits and went to bed. I also became dependent on the masturbation. I tested various substances, LSO too and when I´d used it several times, I began to have nightmares THE LIFE STORY THAT´ S WORTH IT
Hi;
 
In spite of the fact that we met in many different places, and some of you´ ve heard it; I said to myself, I wanted to write to you what the Lord´ d done for me and for each of us. You know what? When I converted I read a book, and there was written something that had fascinated me:“ You see, when I´ ll be at the death´s door I want to see my life was worth it.“
 
Everybody makes mistakes – a lot of mistakes but provided that we are going to Jesus, Master of the Wisdom, we can look forward to the grey curtain brighting up and you´ll see the white shore“

                                                                              /from Tolkien, The Lord of the Ring/ because we´re going to know He´s waiting for us on the other bank…

     „For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor so that you through his poverty might become rich.“ /2 Cor,8,9/

My name´s Ondřej Rozkopal and I´m from Ostrava. I wanna tell you my life story.
I can´t recall all my childhood but I think, it was nice.

Since my schoodays I´d been going to church and when I was ten I experienced /as there´s been custom somewhere/ a deeper initiation into the Christian life.- the first Holy Communion and confession. I meant business but the only thing I can remember is I had more sins than the others.

I disliked autority much and I hated kindergarden, school and stuff like that. When I was studying at the secondary school, I gradually started drinking, smoking cigarettes and marihuana and testing other drugs. I had a lot of troubles at school and at home as well. I was also looking for some girlfriend but since I was rather shy and I didn´t know how to chat girls up, it was no big deal. I was still searching for something, I´d call it love or Jesus.When I was 18, I became a semi- automaton. In the morning I got up, went to school, in the evening I took a couple of hits and went to bed. I also became dependent on the masturbation. I tested various substances, LSO too and when I´d used it several times, I began to have nightmares. I came to be in the frightfully ugly place in my dream I don´t know where it was but I wasn´t able to get out and I felt dreadful there. It´s happened twice.

I needed to get out of it. You may expect a kind of a happy end but the way out wasn ´t easy at all. There were about 3 things which influenced me a lot.

     Firstly, when I didn´t know what to do I asked my mother and she told me to go to the lifelong confession. It´s a sort of an activity when you see a priest and you took out all the evil things and God´ll forgive you. You often feel something´s fallen off your mind. So I went there, and it was on the 19-9-1999, such a weird date.

Something moved inside me, I don´t know what it was. I continued to live in the same way but I was influenced very much by it.

Secondly, I started attending a Christian congregation, and I read various Christian books right after this confession. One of them was called“ Life in new dimensions“ and there was written that every Christian has a gift of the Holy Spirit, something like a present that God gave him for the others and for himselft as well.It´s sufficient to ask God and we´re going to discover it. So I said to myself I´d have a try, one evening I sort of knelt down and said.“My Lord, I´m asking you for some gift“. I put it simply. And something was heard in my head. no words, it was rather a thought if I believed to receive something. After having hesitated I said yes. All at once some words came into my head, and I started praying in languages. It´s a kind of the gift of the intensive prayer. It´s written likewise in the second chapter of the acts in the Bible. It was a very great experience for me since on the second day I felt God´s love in the church so much that I wasn´t able to move and I´d asked God to step aside from me what I regretted immediately afterwards but frankly speaking I couldn´t stand it.

 Thirdly, before turning over a new leaf of life, I got into a very big crises as some´d put it: I fell from the frying pan into the fire. I started having big depressions, I felt empty, down in the mouth and the worst thing was that I was all the time in love with somebody – but it didn´t turn out all right. It happened during this crises that I´d gradually stopped doing those things I´d used to do. I stopped smoking, I haven´t been drunk up to this day, I don´t use any habit-forming substances and I don´t wank. Jesus set me free from all those dependencies that aren´t good for you. I also started praying and reading Bible what was a miracle for me. I meet God when doing these things. Nowdays, I often feel ill at ease and I know it´s not easy but when I call to God, so I know it´s HIM who´ll hear my prayers and who likes me. I know he´s going to help me. It often occured he´d really helped me a lot.

 
I´d like to tell you I believe each of you is called to do great things. God wants to tell about each of us that „ the Mighty one´s done great things for me“.  He has really done great things for me. Jesus never said the journey we´d set off on would be easy but he´s promised us that it´d be worth it. I´m the case in point. At the beginning one more thing from the Bible interested me. Revelation 21: „Now the dwelling of God is with men and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He´ll wipe every tear from their eyes. There´ll be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things´s passed away….
„For God so much loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life“.( John 3, 16 )
„Salvation is found in no one else, for there´s no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.“( Acts 4, 12 ).
„Jesus answered, I´m the way and the truth and the life.No one comes to the Father except through me.( John 14, 6 )
You see, it´s possible to know doctrines about the resurrection but to have no relationship with the ONE who rose from the dead.

Marta also believed in the resurrection in the 11 chapter of John but she didn´t know Jesus was the RESURRECTION and the LIFE, and THIS VERY DAY her brother Lazar´d be resurrected…
