Today I don’t really have a typical “devotional”, rather a thought I’d like to share. I really enjoy reading the books written by Paul, especially 1 & 2 Timothy because You begin to see something really beautiful through his words. As you read along in the books written by apostle Paul, you will begin to see that he really demonstrates and compares our Cristian lives to a fight, a battle, a hard and difficult journey.
With this in mind, just think and examine your own life as I am mine right now. If our life is supposed to resemble a fight, a battle, a war, than how honestly can we say that the life we live is really the one Paul describes? Do we live everyday trying to put to death our flesh and old self? Do we try to serve Him in all and please Him, our commanding officer? How much would a person that knows us from the inside out be able to say that they can see that soldiers life in ours? Do we give in more to temptation and live by the flesh, or do we put that aside and struggle to overcome and with the Spirit actually do overcome? How much to we try to please Him? How much effort do we put in all we do for Him and the Kingdom? How well do we reflect Christ’s life in our everyday matters and affairs? How much love can we say we have for our creator and one who first loved us?
Again, with this post, I am only trying to get us to examine ourselves and really ask God to fix us where we can clearly see our insufficiency and lack of Him. Please do your best and be honest with yourself when examining yourself because either way He knows where you stand!
