Day 28: Living Life Faithfully

Updated: Jan 29

A 40-Day Faith Challenge



Jesus tells us in Matthew 17:20, that faith the size of a tiny mustard seed is powerful. So, let's plant those seeds and reap the harvest.



The Seed: God's Word


Cleansing Rain: A Reflection on God's Word


Faithful living requires us to diligently purge sin from our lives. The world tells us, if it feels good, it must be right. This never leads us down righteous paths. Instead, we are called to live a life directed by God’s goodness, not ours. 


If you read further in 2 Timothy 2:22, Paul tells us to flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace along with those who call on the lord from a pure heart. We must not only resist temptation, we must flee from it, remove ourselves from such behaviors, and set ourselves apart. This can lead to uncomfortable consequences especially if we’ve been enjoying our sin for a while. We may have to step away from certain friendships, excuse ourselves from events, and speak in truth instead of appeasement. Because as Christians, we aren’t meant to conform to the standards of the world. We are set apart as holy.


We join others with pure hearts and pursue love, not selfish pleasures. We chase righteousness, not fleeting happiness. We choose faith, not fear. We live in a peace that passes all understanding, not judgmental confrontation. In fact, the next verse warns us to have nothing to do with foolish ignorant controversies. As servants, we must be kind to everyone and even endure evil as we gently teach the Gospel. All this, in hopes that others will come to the faith that saves. 

 

This is a life of meaning and purpose. This is the life of a believer.

God is good and always leads us to good. God is truth and cannot lie. God is love and loves us faithfully. May we live in these truths and may they guide us each day.
