It’s interesting to know that Christ’s faith is a goggle that should be used to view every conversation under the sun, to undress every thought since it has something to say concerning every imagination of the heart. The following nuggets-like series is born out of this understanding, and I trust you would be blessed by it, and hopefully share periodically
Looking Inward & Outward (Part 1)
- When a believer is really concerned that he is not as humble as he should, then the revelations of Christ coming his way has reached his heart (Rom. 12:3, Matt. 11:29, 2Cor. 4:2).
- The world needs our trust badly, and has to play around our ignorance of Christ’s divine power to secure it. So anything we do at the expense of this power (Christ’s Faith) is a gain to the world and makes it feed fat on our souls.
- When, like the Pharisees and unlike our Lord Jesus, we have our reputation to regularly protect, we would have lots of peace of heart to loose. With every thought we take concerning our reputation, we lose life.
- Babies get the attention of their mum by their cry. When we lack a cry like David’s, then the Lord hasn’t become our sole sustenance. Unlike babies, we aren’t living exclusively on Christ Faith!
- The carnal life doesn’t look carnal to a carnal mind but actually looks righteous, and this is why it goes unnoticed for many years (Prov. 16:25, Rom. 10:3, Jam. 1:26).
- The Lord wants to raise many role models of repentance who will live in God’s sight, and one of the greatest things they would have to fight, is their reputation before men; how they want to be perceived, seen or received.
