A man went for an evening run.
He decided to run along the cliff, so he could get a good
view of the sunset on the valley below.
Engulfed in the beauty of the sunset, he stepped on a rock
and turned his ankle.
Then, he fell in the WRONG DIRECTION!
All of a sudden, he was sliding down the cliff, clawing and
grabbing for anything to stop his fall.
His hand caught a small bush.
He was clinging hard to the bush, but he heard and felt
the roots coming loose.
Quickly, he looked up, and prayed, "God please!"
And, he felt that he heard God say, "Let go!"
He just COULDN'T!
Then, the bush gave way, and he fell on a ledge!
Later, his wife became worried and asked a
neighbor to go look for him.
The neighbor found him, threw him a rope and the
man climbed up.
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory,
who first trusted in Christ.
13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the
word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also
after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy
Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the
redemption of the purchased possession,
unto the praise of his glory.
LIGHT from the WORD.
All Christians are like the man who fell off the cliff.
We need something to WORK WITH!
FAITH is that something!
Faith is RECEIVED by surrender to Christ as Lord.
With faith, we have, possess and use "the earnest of
Faith is a "gift" from God to the saved.
And, it is to be USED in our daily lives.
Like the man on the cliff, we sometimes need faith
to CLING to God.
And, we sometimes need faith to
LET GO and LET GOD!
Use faith to CLING to God when you are anxious, worried,
Use faith to LET GO and LET GOD when you are
overcome or totally distraught.
Use faith also to pray, study the Bible and KNOW
that He will help you GROW as a Christian!
You are SEALED in His HOLY SPIRIT!
Don't allow yourself to look like you've been sealed in
ritualistic, legalistic pickle juice!
USE faith to CLING to Christ!
And, when necessary, USE faith to LET GOD!
Above all, USE faith to GROW in Christ!
Live "to the praise of His glory," because He has
"sealed" you in that "Holy Spirit of PROMISE!"
