8-30-20

     End of the month already? Would you say your faith has been tested this month, perhaps all of 2020? Of course, the Word of God tells us we will be tested.

     1 Peter 1:7 That the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

     Many Christians have said, ‘even if I am thrown into the fiery furnace, I will not deny Jesus.’ Easy to say, difficult to put into practice. Look at what’s happening right now and ask yourself, ‘have I walked in fear?’

    Daniel 3:25 “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

     So it seems a lot of Christians are walking in fire this year. If you are one of them, then how is your walk going, can others see the Son of God with you?

     Next, to be being born-again, we need the church body that we might be encouraged in difficult days. I need the fellowship, prayer, and testimonies of other Christians. Let’s be real, the world just doesn’t get it. How can we be encouraged by unbelievers? The answer is clear, “We can’t!” Oh, we might learn some things from those who are not Spirit-led but we can never receive spiritual help from those who do not walk in the Spirit. You can’t get water out of a dry well unless you redrill it. Perhaps many need a redrilling? I, for one, want all of Christ’s Spirit He can allow me to have. The older I get, the more I realize without Him I am nothing. But the good news is, we have Him because we received Him when we confessed our sins and invited Him to be with us even in the fire. Yes, He promised to never leave us, so may we all look up and be at peace in Him.
