"Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.' ". Then they remembered his words. Luke 24:5b-8.

Faith Living PDF Print
Wednesday, 04 April 2012 05:57

“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.” Hebrews 11:8

Living a life of faith often times means we may not know exactly where we are being led, but we know Who we are following. God protects a trusting heart as He perfects it through His faith-building process. It is a great adventure to align with the Almighty’s agenda. Like an experienced and trusted guide, He is always a step ahead down the path of His will. So, we seek to know Him, because He knows where He is going.

Faith living is not always fun, but it is fulfilling. It is not always exciting, but it is engaging. It is not always easy, but it is honorable. It is not always safe, but it is secure. It is not always clear, but it is rewarding. It is not always instant gratification, but it is satisfying. Faith living is looking intently into the gracious face of our heavenly Father. Christ’s countenance cares. He laughs when we laugh, and He weeps when we weep.

“And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise.” Hebrews 11:11

Faith living is not for the faint of heart. When you sign up to follow your Savior Jesus, you declare abandonment to His desires over any clamoring of competing voices. For example, an unscrupulous acquaintance may lead you into a foolish financial decision or a sincere friend could recommend unwise career advice. Listen and obey the Lord first.

In most cases, faith living is not a straight line from point A to point B. The progression in God’s will involves starts and stops, relational dead-ends, financial forays, ups and downs and finally meaningful milestones to be celebrated. Therefore, keep on your prayerful path with Jesus. Keep showing up by faith and He will direct you in His best direction. Faith living lives wisely while waiting—and moves forward when called by Christ. Keep your eye on the prize of pleasing your heavenly Father—win His reward.

“By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict. By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.” Hebrews 11:23-24

As the church people, it's tempting to spend a majority of our time and energy on programs that are focused inside the walls of the church. However, the people we are leading actually live most of their lives outside the walls of the church. They spend 5-6 days a week at work. Maybe they coach a little league team or volunteer at school. They're busy raising their kids. They spend time with their friends on the weekend. Their lives intersect with a lot of people outside the church all week long.
So as church leaders, how can we intentionally inspire and coach our people to see the natural ministry opportunities around them every day? How can we lead our people to serve beyond the walls; beyond the ministries inside the church; and take their faith into a world that desperately needs Christ? Well, the answer is Right here RightNow with our church program SNAP being held on Sunday evenings starting at 5:30pm with a covered dish supper. We will be using the RightNow program video's as we gain a full understanding of what exactly is needed to serve others as Christ would. We will see real life stories of people and churches putting their faith in action as the body of the church. So come and join us in action as we begin to serve others.
