Christians Must Remain Focused In Their Religious Acts
Passage: 2 Peter 1
Christians are called to live uprightly with God and shun pretense. Many struggle with so many things, while being weighed down by life’s trials.
If you would just focus on God, you would understand that these are just so little compared to the Almighty God we serve.
All He wants is that you make Him your point of focus and rely solely on Him. We must keep a genuine relationship with Him at all times. The scripture stated,
“But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love…
…For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:5-8).
God’s Blessings For Focused Christians Are Unlimited
Believers must have focus and cautiously practice their faith to remain worthy of God’s benefits.
The Creator reserves his eternal benefits for those who portray godly virtues.
The virtues that we must display include, but are not limited to self-control, perseverance, kindness, and love. Christians must be loyal to God and represent him well on earth.
Our practices must promote God’s name and bear good fruits of his kingdom.
Anyone who represents God well on earth with his or her godly practices will receive his blessing beyond human imaginations.
In a world filled with different vices that bring worldly pleasure, being upright and steadfast in God may be difficult. However, Christ makes things easy for us. Seeking help from Him and making a conscious effort will go a long way.Click to tweet
Dear God, please help me to live a life that is relevant to your kingdom. Help me to bear positive fruits of your kingdom…
…Please give me the grace to demonstrate a godly virtue that will showcase your glory in all ramifications. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
