The process? Process is important even when it comes to our spiritual lives. The problem many Christians have is that they either neglect the process altogether because it looked too much like work or they get too focused on the process and neglected to remember that the process, while important, isn’t more important than the goal.
Think about it. God wants us to lead holy lives. He tells us that if we believe in Christ we will want to strive to lead lives like Christ. He has given us a process to follow. Because Christ dwells in us we are no longer slaves to sin but are now slaves to holiness.
God’s Word tells us: “For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.” (Romans 6:14).
God calls you and I to first make our bodies conform to holiness, ridding all sin in our lives. It’s a foolproof process, as long as we remember it’s easy to get lost in the details while losing sight of the goal. When you succeed in not sinning, give praise to God and keep laying that foundation down. It’s a process that works when we glorify the goal and not the process.
“I pray today in Jesus name that we remember that there is a process to making ourselves holy in Christ. Lord, help us to take those moments of victory and make them the foundation for building upon a Christian life. 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
