21 Day Challenge -
Book: Authentication Process
In the book, we are focusing on three perspectives of connecting us, the Believer to a life of purpose:
1. Birth of a renewed mind: aligning our thoughts to God's Word and purpose for our lives
2. Standing on your square: recognizing the importance of what is required of us as we navigate life and its many distractions
3. Following Christ: our challenges and struggles should be catalysts for our spiritual growth
Being a Believer and living a life of purpose is a process. Along, the way there are connections that we may miss. Today, we focus on the perspective of "Following Christ" and its importance in our lives.
Wishing you a wonderful day!
Chapter 17: Meekness
Connecting the dots: Jesus’s journey from the Garden of Gethsemane to dying on the cross is my model of meekness.
Note 1: My studies on overcoming struggles led me to study sin of pride which is so subtle that we don’t realize how interwoven it is within our struggles. Studying pride, led me to study the virtue of meekness. Driving to work one day, I thought, what exactly does meekness look like? How am I to respond when people come against me, when I feel betrayed, when I am confronted or in the midst of a struggle? I thought the ultimate image and application of meekness could only be found in God’s Word. So, I read and studied Matthew 26, which provides us with the beautiful lesson of Jesus, our Lord and Savior humbling Himself as He prepares to die on the cross for our sins.
Chapter 18: Faithfulness
Note 3: Even when everything is changing and I may not agree; when enemies come against me; when my pride gets the best of me—my God said, “Trust me.” So, I will; so I must. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones” (Proverbs 3:5-8).
