Climbing the ladder of His will: April 2008

Wednesday, April 23, 2008


I've seen fellow Christians who have a habit that I think is wrong. Sometimes it makes me think, "Well they certainly aren't bearing fruit!"

Matthew 3:8
"Produce fruit in keeping with repentance."

One of my best friends is still struggling with a bad habit, recently he told me that he had no intention of quitting...I really was disappointed, but then less then a week ago, he told me he is fed up with this particular habit and wants to break it so bad. Repentance is the key, it isn't good deeds. It is better to be a struggling Christian then a Pharisee, the Pharisees, were "good" as the world might say, but they didn't repent, they were alway "right", those aren't fruits of the spirit. God doesn't want a good person, he wants someone who he can refine, melt down and remodel...not someone who is already modelled in the image that they think it perfect.

Trials and Tribulations

Right now I'm going through more trials, big and small, than I want've all been there. What has helped YOU? For me, I know the only thing that will is surrendering fully to God. But isn't that easier said than done? Because the way I look at it is like this: If I can't serve God in the trials, I can't serve him when there aren't any...and also if I'm not going to fully devote my life, well that's just not devotion.
