Walk by Faith

When we face the storms of life they almost always appear more powerful to us than God’s Word. The sobering reality, however, is that we have to remind ourselves that our perceptions can be deceptive. So often, things are not as they appear to be in the natural. We need to walk by faith and not by sight.

Temporary vs. Eternity

For many of us the way we are living in the present is impacting our eternity. The way we live our lives for the now is sometimes far too focused on our life on earth and not on where we will one day go. We are guilty of being led off the straight and narrow for the things this world says can satisfy us instead of focusing on the only person that can fully satisfy ANY need we may have – Jesus.

Hunger for God

Hunger is a sign of good health. When we get sick we often experience a loss of appetite. Similarly to be spiritually hungry is a sign of spiritual health. In the natural world we get hungry by not eating but in God’s Kingdom we get hungry by eating. The more we fill ourselves with God’s word, Christian testimony, music, books etc. the more our appetite and desire for the things of God will grow.

The Wisdom of God

When we receive Christ we are set apart for God, we are called to live holy lives. Our lives are enriched in Jesus, our speech and knowledge, so that we will not lack any spiritual gift. And so, disciples must have godly wisdom because it is a gift of grace. Being a disciple and having godly wisdom go together. But, what is godly wisdom? Why do we need it? How do we get it?

Valuing Jesus Over Everything

What do we place value on in life? What do we value above Jesus? Unfortunately for many of us there are quite a few things in life that seem to take precedence over Jesus. Maybe it is our jobs, family, car, food, money, electronics, music, acceptance, reputation, or quite possibly even our physique? The list goes on and on. According to the Bible there is nothing that we are supposed to value over Jesus.

Stretcher Bearers

Healing is part of God’s love for us. It is part of His restorative plan for His people. Jesus is the Healer. The many accounts of healing are not just to tell us it happened but to help us experience Jesus as continuing healer. And so we can identify with the men who felt compelled to bring their paralysed friend before Jesus for they knew that in Jesus healing could be found. The paralysed man was healed that day because of the faith of his friends. They believed that Jesus could heal him and so they acted on that belief, persevering through the obstacles and placing their trust in Jesus.

Stop Grumbling

What is so bad about grumbling once in a while? Is it not okay to occasionally simply vent about life? However, one of the main problems is that when we complain we place ourselves at the centre of the universe. We make life about us, when nothing could be further from the truth. By not complaining and being obedient to not complaining, we will become more spiritually mature and we will represent God in a pleasing way. Not complaining is counter-cultural to the world around us. People will notice it and it will be as obvious as walking outside and seeing the stars in the sky! We serve our purpose when we are lights in a dark world because those lights help guide people to the truth, to the God who gives us a life worth living.

Obedience

How would you respond if God asked you to do something but then at the same time told you that you wouldn’t succeed in doing it? Would you still do it? It’s a challenging question, yet you may be thinking, “Of course I would, God asked me to do it.” But consider how often we don’t do what God asks of us when there is the possibility of failure, let alone a guarantee. We can ask the question, when God asks us to do something what is He looking for? What does He value in our response? Is it the results? Is He impressed with our success? Or is obedience what matters most to Him?

The HOW of Salvation

In Acts 16:29-30, Paul and Silas were asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” It is important for us to know and be able to explain to anyone who asks us, how we are saved. In understanding how we are saved it is helpful to use the roadmap statement: "THE GOSPEL SAVES ME IN AN INSTANT AND CHANGES ME GRADUALLY."
