Maybe the Christian life could be summed up in these 3 words…
KEEP MAKING PROGRESS
Some days, when all is well, this seems easy.
Some days, when stuff is going off, not so easy.
Wherever you find yourself today, have a mind to keep making progress. Keep doing the simple things, the things that you know are right for you to do.
In 2 Corinthians 4 Paul writes these incredible words:
‘We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body’.
Remember that your life in Christ is a window to the greatness of God for all those who watch your life pass theirs. To keep making progress shows off His goodness. Though in life we may be hard pressed, perplexed, persecuted or struck down REMEMBER that the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in you. Every time you make another step, it brings glory to His name.
Fix your eyes on what is not seen. Fix your eyes on things eternal, not temporary. One step at a time. Who knows where that might lead you as you allow God to have His way, working through you.
How’s your progress?
