Walk by Faith, Not by Sight PDF Print E-mail

“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” – 2 Cor. 5:7

 

Walking according to the will of God here in this life can be a difficult task for the children of God.  God’s children are appropriately consistently compared to sheep in the scripture. Sheep are not very intelligent animals (when you are feeling pretty smart sometimes just keep in mind you’re just a pile of dust plus the grace of God) and are prone to wander away from the fold and away from the profitable fields of grazing, if not for the watch care of the shepherd. God’s children are commanded to walk and follow our Heavenly Father’s will by faith in God, not by sight.

Let the Word Dwell in You Richly PDF Print E-mail

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” – Colossians 3:16

 

As we close out one year and look forward toward the beginning of a new year, we reflect on God’s blessings in our life over the last year but also reflect on our shortcomings as well. This is a time when it is productive to “examine yourselves” (2 Cor. 13:5, 1 Cor. 11:28) to hopefully look for how we may improve our walk with Christ if God is gracious to grant us another year of life. As I consider my discipleship goals for the coming year, this verse has steadily come to forefront of my mind – to “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom”. I hope to invest and immerse myself more fully and fall in love more passionately with Christ’s word in the coming days, months, and years.

".....yet ye have not, because ye ask not." -James 4:2b

 

We often use certain expressions that involve prayer to relay our empathy toward others. Expressions as "praying for you" or "you are in our prayers." Unfortunately, without realizing it we soon turn our empathetic phrases into common pleasantries.

"And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me." Acts 12:7-8
