Galatians 6:9 NLT
So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
The best advice for being a growing and successful Christian believer is just to stick with it. Just keep on doing what you know to do.
Nobody said being a Christian was going to be easy; there are many things that will challenge our faith in Jesus and seek to sway us from the path of good works that has been set before us.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
However, if there is any virtue we need to cultivate it should be the ability to stick with Jesus and to the truth of the Gospel that has been revealed to us, against all odds.
Acts 20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
More than anything, keep feeding on God’s Word. The Word (Gospel) is what has the power to change things in your life.
Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth…” The Gospel of Christ is the power that drives the whole Kingdom of God.
Heb 1:3 AMP
He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by his mighty act of power. What He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high.
Please, are you catching the flow?
Mark 4:26-28 NLT
Jesus also said, “the kingdom of God is like a farmer who scatters seed on the ground.Night and day, while he’s asleep or awake, the seed sprouts and grows, but he does not understand how it happens. The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens.
Jesus explained in Mark 4:14 that GOD’S WORD IS THE SEED.
So God’s Word (the Gospel of Christ, that is) will bring forth God’s will in your life if you will just plant it in your heart and protect it until it produces a harvest.
Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…”
Don’t worry if it seems like your progress is slow; notwithstanding, just keep running the race. Just keep on the right track and you will reach your proper destination.
2 Peter 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.
In other words, now that you have a more sure word of prophecy that assures you of a better tomorrow based on the sacrifice of Jesus (what He has done) hold on to it like someone who has found a lamp in the midst of gross darkness.
Hold onto the truth of the Gospel of Christ until you see the miracle you desire; hold onto it until the tangibility of the spiritual reality of the Gospel becomes evidential enough to convince others about the faithfulness of GOD and turn people to Christ.
You can’t feel a tree growing by putting your arms around it either, but day by day it surely grows stronger and stronger. This is just common sense, isn’t it?
In the same vein, don’t quit just because you messed up and made some mistakes. Receive your forgiveness and go forward.
Let this truth be an anchor for your soul
Heb 8:12 AMP For I (God Almighty) will be merciful and gracious toward their sins and I will remember their deeds of unrighteousness no more.
Just because the devil stripped you down does not mean you should stay down. Refuse to be the one who quits or gives up easily. Choose to be strong; choose to stand.
Ephesians 6:10 “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might…”
SO WHAT SHOULD YOU KEEP DOING?
Keep studying the Bible. 2 Tim 2:15
Keep on talking to God about everything. Phil 4:6 NLT
Keep on being thankful. Col 4:2
Keep on praising God. Psa 150:6
Keep on walking in love. Ephesians 5:1-2
Keep on trusting JESUS even when you don’t understand what is going on. 2 Tim 1:12
God (Abba Father) understands — even when you don’t. And you can be certain of His never-failing love for you.
So, trust JESUS and keep on walking in faith and love. Keep on doing what you know is right.
Matthew 24:46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing
Keep on keeping on!
Hope you are blessed?
Happy JESUS-FOCUSED Weekend
I will not quit but will keep on walking with God, going #AllTheWayWithJESUS
