Walk By Faith Right Now

March 7, 2013

Many of us know what it is to walk by faith (albeit on different levels), even to some who live in the USA. Thus I think it is likely that some of you can relate to the point that I share. While it is scriptural and familiar to the multitudes, the multitudes do not know it through experiential reality. Those of you who do will appreciate this series of blogs, of which this is the first, about living faith.

  • “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” I John 5:4

Caution! Never mind about yesterday. Are we overcoming by authentic faith today?

In a land of plenty it is easy, and tempting for the flesh (“sold under sin” – Rom. 7:14) to gravitate toward security and comfort, even for those who have at other times exercised living faith that resulted in mighty exploits. For those of us who actually know what it is to truly offer ourselves for God’s absolute use for extended periods of time resulting in His glory revealed, we should take extra care not to position ourselves back into the comforts of this life. Both Paul and Peter knew this to be true. Notice how each one addresses this concern. Notice the gravity with which each one addressed it independent of the other.

Paul wrote in I Cor. 9:27 “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”

Peter wrote in II Peter 3:17 “You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked;”
