Preventing a Fall January 15
Food for Thought: 2 Peter 1:10
Why do some Christians seem to have so many ups and downs? One day they are on fire, and the next they are cold as stone. One day they appear so happy, and the next they are leaving offended. That’s why God’s Kingdom in some places seems to have stalled. There’s just too much instability in the hearts of some believers.
The book of Peter has the solution: Focus on your election and calling. Make them “sure,” or secure. Keep your eyes focused on the things above. Be quick to forgive offense. In the bigger picture, petty disputes are insignificant. Someone stepping on your toes means nothing compared to the high calling of Christ Jesus and the tremendous value of the Body of Christ. That’s why the Word tells us to bear with one another in love.
He has such great plans for you! Don’t let them be delayed because of some fleshly incident or desire. Build your house, your life, your aspirations, on the Rock, not on your feelings. Then, when the storms come, you will not be moved.
