Do you find yourself busy all the time but don’t seem to accomplish much? Are you really living the Christian life Christ intended for you to live? With all the learning, and going to church activities, is it truly bringing more joy to your live?
To each man is given “the” measure of faith. If your Bible changed the word “the” to “a”, it’s wrong. In Romans 12:3, it should read like this: For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he out to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one the measure of faith. When God said that He was no respecter of persons, then He means to each one was given THE same measure of faith to start with. That means, each individual was given the same amount. It’s up to us what we do with it.
We were not placed on this earth to allow certain things to just happen. We do have some control as to what we allow to come into our lives. However, a lot we do control comes by what we think and say, out loud. That’s where our faith comes in.
Believing the “Truth” will set us free and believing an error will bind us!
It is the truth of the Word of God that will set us free. Jesus said in John 8:31,31 – “If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed!” (Verse 32) “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” So where will the truth of His Word lead us? To the son, Jesus Christ.
Anyone can have “religion” by reading scripture and practicing all the things that make us so, but until we have a “relationship” with the Son, we will never reach “that life” that Jesus intended for us to have.
Do you long for that joy that the Christian life is supposed to bring? Do non-believers look at your life and think, “Why would I want that life if it looks just like mine?” I’ve often thought that about my own personal life. I’ve asked “What makes my life any different from a non-Christian’s life?”
The Bible tells us there will be a transformation that will take place by the renewing of the mind. We do that by getting in His Word and seeing for ourselves how He thinks and what He has to say about “everything pertaining to life.”
Christ never said we were to perform our way to Him. He wants us to believe what is written by the Holy Spirit and that is the truth we are to believe. When we allow the Holy Spirit to work “through us,” then we will start to see some changes. His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Stay with me on this and I promise it will make some things clear. More tomorrow.
