The believer's life is a strange one. Either it is a matchless riddle that no worldling can understand, or a painful reality of failures in our daily walk. God desires for us to live a life of continual renewal and daily victory.
Good things done at the wrong time will not turn out right. God calls us to be sensitive to Him and know His timing. Are we in tune with what He is asking us to do today, whether it be joyous or difficult? He will make everything beautiful in His time.
Let us go on unto perfection. God has given us rich promises for the Christian life. Are we content with just being a Christian and having faith in God? No, let us press on unto the high calling of glory and virtue God has for us.
To be effective we need to be walking in the Spirit. Is our ax dull? Lack of evangelism and lack of prayer and communion with our Father can dull our cutting edge. Let us sit at Jesus' feet and be sharpened.
