being authentic

Who are you when you are alone. No one there. By yourself?

Are you the same person who is praising God in the sanctuary? The person friends call up for prayer and advice?

If you take time to speak and listen to God throughout the day, then yes. You are the same inside as out. But if you are going on yesterday’s Bible Promise. Or last week’s Memory Verse, there is every chance that you are pretty much running on empty. Nothing in – Nothing out.

If we are to be ready “in season and out of season” then we have to build up our faith by the reading of the Word. Speaking to God constantly. Listening for His voice telling us when to speak and what to say. It isn’t enough to just desire to grow in grace. It actually takes some determination to spend time meditating upon the word of God and letting the Holy Spirit reveal what it means for you – today.

You can be the same inside as out. God doesn’t condemn us for trying. He is the great encourager! Stay in His word, listen to His voice, sing His praises. You will be the person God has called you to be!

TAKE THE INITIATIVE

Add to your faith virtue…

2 Peter 1:5
http://www.BibleStudyTools.com/search/?query=2pe+1:5&sr=1

“Add” means there is something we have to do. We are in danger of
forgetting that we cannot do what God does, and that God will not do
what we can do. We cannot save ourselves nor sanctify ourselves, God
does that; but God will not give us good habits, He will not give us
character, He will not make us walk aright. We have to do all that
ourselves, we have to work out the salvation God has worked in. “Add”
means to get into the habit of doing things, and in the initial
stages it is difficult. To take the initiative is to make a
beginning, to instruct yourself in the way you have to go.”

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest
