Quiet Solitude and Meditation

Reflecting on what it may mean for me to live out a more genuine and true Christian Faith. It meant experiencing all that life offers. The suffering, the abundance, the blessings, the famine - all the seasons of my own existence. It meant shedding myself of all the fears, doubts, and insecurities. It is a progress of moving forward to be complete and whole.

“In the Similitude of My Only Begotten Son”

Obedience merely means we are placing our faith and trust in God’s will and desire for us and our own lives. We walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). It is by this faith that Adam and Eve offered up sacrifices unto God as they worshipped and called upon His name. To this end - the Angel came and revealed unto them that this was in similitude of the sacrifice Jesus Christ will provide to answer the ends of the Law and fulfill the plan of salvation.

Day 9 – Bringing Glory Through Our Obedience

The enticing of the spirit of God or the spirit of the adversary is constant and consistent. Over time, we learn how to choose one over the other. If we choose the right, we are putting on the righteousness of Christ and patterning our lives after his.

Day 1 – Center on Christ

True, and authentic Christian faith and living, rests on the pure doctrine of Christ where life is about letting our Heavenly Father use us for His purpose and not for our own gain and sense of satisfaction. The Apostle Paul taught that for those who are carnally minded are set against the true things of God. However, those who are spiritually minded are such because they have set their hearts and minds on God for life and peace (Romans 8:6).

Scripture Motivation: The Power of the Word

The scriptures are filled with gripping stories and challenging exhortations. People read and study from them because they are central to their lives and faith. Scriptures provide answers to the big issues in life - Who God is, Christ's infinite atonement and the plan of salvation, Life, death, love, sin, moral guidance, resilient and bold faith, overcoming and enduring persecution and times of despondence.

Renewed by Fresh Faith

Faith in Jesus Christ helps me to focus on my relationship with God with more confidence and expectations. For those who have lost their faith, or who have always had to struggle along without it, it is often helpful just to accept the reality of our need for Jesus. This does not mean we need to be convinced or believe in all that Scripture teaches. All we need to commit ourselves over is the willingness to believe and trust in God. Gradually will our awareness of God's grace will empower us to move from faith to faith.

Being an Impeccable and Authentic Christian Through Our Word

It is through our faith in Jesus Christ that we are able to speak as one having authority. To call all men unto repentance. To forgive those who have trespassed against us. To preach with authority against the many seeds of doubt and fear. Our very words are impeccable where it brings light of hope, love, and truth within the darkest regions of the human heart. It beckons us to be a light unto the world.
