ABIDING in Christ is a minute by minute decision. It is not a one-and-done act. Therefore, every time we are presented with an either/or scenario we must consider the eternal importance of our actions.
I am not saying this to alarm you. On the contrary, I am trying to illustrate how important a deeply devoted, Christlike lifestyle is.
“Impulsiveness needs to be trained into intuition through discipline … A follower of Christ “requires the supernatural grace of God to live twenty-four hours of every day as a saint, going through drudgery, and living an ordinary, unnoticed, and ignored existence” — Oswald Chambers
We don’t need to be important by the world’s standards to have an eternal impact on the lives of others. However, we are called to love God and love others (Mark 12:30-31) and the only way to accomplish this is to be still in His presence on a regular basis.
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! – Psalm 46:10 NKJV
The Holy Spirit will use this time to train, encourage and mentor us.
Is there anything better than that?
