When your faith gets real
September 28, 2010
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind….
One of the great challenges of faith is to let it touch and transform our everyday lives.
You might think that goal would be obvious, but I'm not so sure.
There are some interesting correlations between patterns in the natural world and the spiritual. Just think about this. As you know, I'm a big fan of the Olympics and every couple of years we watch triumphant champions stand on platforms to receive their medals.
But have you ever noticed what happens to some of these champions after basking in the glory of that moment? For some it's the beginning of a life of success. But unfortunately, some athletes are unable to translate the discipline of their athletic careers into a daily way of life.
The same could be said of some professional baseball and football players, and of even one of America's great astronauts who walked on the moon. This man scaled the heights of human glory but was never able to translate what he knew to a daily way of life.
So let me ask you a question. Are you taking what you know about faith in Christ Jesus and letting it transform how you live every day? You must!
Let Jesus help you get real regarding your faith. Take it from the mountaintop of worship and apply it to the challenges of life around you.
ARE YOU CONNECTING WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR FAITH
IN CHRIST TO HOW YOU LIVE EVERY DAY?
