You Are What You Live For April 10, 2009

We study, do homework, and take tests in school to move up to the next grade level…

We study and practice to take our test to get our driver’s license…

We study and take tests to graduate high school and college..

We study and take tests to get various degrees…

We work, and work, and work and put forth so much effort to get promotions and raises on our jobs…

But how often do we study the Word of God?

How many of us pass the tests of faith and endurance?

How hard do we try to use what God gives us everyday?

What kind of work are we doing to grow and improve and be “promoted” in the body of Christ?

Why don’t we put forth more effort in keeping His commandments?

We receive the titles and call ourselves doctors, lawyers, teachers, assistants, sales associates, musicians, etc because we live our lives in such a way that we perform those duties on a daily basis and it’s what we put our efforts into…

But why is it that we don’t use that same principle when we assume the title “Christian”?
