We all struggle to live a Christian life based on the guidelines, but I just want to be an encouragement to you today. No matter how hard we try, our own superficial efforts will never get us to heaven. I have failed at this so many times, I have tried to do things my way and tried to battle sin on my own. Well, we just can’t do it. Spiritual perfection is unachievable for all of us, without a full dependence on God. It’s like trying to build a house without any materials or trying to fix a bike with no tools. Actually Impossible.
A continuation in prayer and daily communication with God will allow to us constantly continue growth and continue progress. What does your spiritual flow chart look like? Is it steady, going down or increasingly going up? That’s what God wants to see.
Don’t get me wrong guys, this will not happen overnight of course, but that firm foundation in Christ will bear spiritual fruit in time. Prayer and reading- these are your lifelines, pray to god that he will reveal his spiritual attributes in you, earnestly request this from him. I was reading Matthew 7 the other day that says if the son asks for bread his father will not give him a stone. Gods word is infallible. It will come to pass if we are consistent.
Peace and love
