“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Hebrews 3:12-13

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Be careful then, dear brothers and sisters.

Make sure that your own hearts are not evil and unbelieving,

turning you away from the living God.

.

You must warn each other every day, while it is still “today,”

so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God.

.

– Hebrews 3:12-13 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

There exists the sad possibility of total loss of belief in God.

Many resist Him,

and end up breaking away from Him completely.

.

This happens when get so set in our own selfish ways and arguments

that we no longer are able to stomach a God who pleads with us to do otherwise – to do as He teaches us.

So we give up our faith

…and in doing so, we renounce Christ.

.

Our Christian faith is under attack, constantly!

Christians today have to overcome fear of ridicule,

and the temptation to hide their convictions from scoffing unbelievers.
If we call ourselves Christian, then we must give our faith much more than lip service.

.

Is this fear of ridicule causing me to be ashamed of Christ,

or making me deny him?

If those around me mock the Christian faith,

do I join in with them for fear of losing face?

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Jesus, Name above all names,

strengthen my character that I may always be truly loyal to You.
