James 1:3 “For you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness!”
If one’s heart for CHRIST will not mirror HIS own, then their path known as Fellowship…plagued.
For every partial surrender — filled with Lip’s service — cannot bring them close to HIS side.
So whenever we sing, anthems raised, when we’re joining with heart-filled expressions of praise…then comparisons happen!
Each sees their own level and knows that a gap means “less Faith.”
So before lukewarm walking leads you to such news…bend the knee! Bend your heart without gap nor delay!
As HIServant in your service,
Devotional: 1 Peter 1:7 “So that the tested genuineness of your faith — more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire — may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of JESUS CHRIST!”
Without our faith being tested, we won’t know how our levels — EXERCISED — match up with that of a steadfast, zealous and “daily seeking GOD” believer.
That’s what a test does! It shows us the gap between where we are and where we need to be!
Sitting back in the comfort zones of life and CHRISTian routine WILL NOT grow Faith. In such areas, Faith is rarely — EXERCISED!
1 John 5:4 “For everyone who has been born of GOD overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.”
Now bodily exercise profits little.
1 Timothy 4:8 “For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.
Our “life to come” is met at The Rapture! Our Faith then is being tested now! Do you turn towards the WORD zealously or transactionally?
Would it bother you to know if your Faith levels were sub-par or greatly lacking? I mean, would it truly matter to you?
I preach most of all to myself praying that you see the Hour, that you also are warning the world and that your days are filled with comparative exercise — pressing daily into HIS presence!
Amen and amen!
