Doers and believers? There are two ways to fix a leaky pipe.You can choose to patch it somehow and hope for the best or you can choose to replace it and start over with something that promises to work from the start.The question is will it hold or should you pull it all apart? The first would be faster, easier and less expensive.The alternative would, not be.
Think about it. If you really want to change things, often shortcuts need to be ruled out.
God’s Word tells us: “The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire” (Luke 3:8-9).
If we want to lead righteous lives, it’s important we understand the significance of changed lives not just patched up ones. Just getting by has its consequences. If we’re committed to changing our sinful behavior, we need to be committed to making the sometimes painful changes. Believing is one thing--doing is another.
“Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus, I rejoice in the change that is taking place in my life. I know that it’s only by Your grace and mercy towards me, because You are not slow to fulfill Your promise to me, not wishing that I should perish, but that I should reach repentance. In Jesus name. Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
