Problems and Pressures

Jesus did not promise any of us that consistent Christian living would be easy! He did not promise a release from daily problems and pressures. He did not promise to take us to our heavenly home on a fluffy pink cloud! We live our lives in the knowledge of the grace of God, but we dare not forget that our Lord came to die for us and to express the never-changing moral and redemptive will of God for His people. Before we condemn the Jews of Bible history for their failures, we must be sure that we are not overlooking spiritual and moral shortcomings of our own! As Christian believers, you and I must be careful about the reasons we give for not heeding God’s Word and God’s warning from heaven. Have we taken His grace seriously enough that we have sought forgiveness for spiritual carelessness, indifference, and apathy?

Verse

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8:35

Thought

As Christian believers, you and I must be careful about the reasons we give for not heeding God’s Word and God’s warning from heaven.

Prayer

Lord, let me be reminded of the high standard You have set for us. And give me the grace to live up to my potential.
