Two intoxicated men got in a row boat.
They were attempting to cross the lake.
They rowed hard for 2 hours.
Then, they began to wonder why it was taking
so long to cross the lake.
Finally, they realized why.
The boat was still tied to the dock!
1 Cor 16:13
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Sadly today, there are many Christians like those two men in the boat.
They are so intoxicated with the world they fail to see
the ropes which bind them, and keep them from moving forward
In the text above, we find three things that will help us to
GROW in faith, and move forward for Christ.
Be spiritually alert!
Remember the world hated Jesus, and He said they would also
hate true disciples or believers.
There were "deceivers" among the Corinthians, and there are
deceivers among us today!
In order to remain spiritually alert we should be faithful in
Bible study, prayer, attendance, and ministry.
It is through faith in Christ that we are saved,
and by that same faith we must continue!
It is only in Christ that we overcome the difficulties of the world.
"....and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith."
(1 John 5:4)
Be resolved to act strenuously!
Spend much time in study in order to not be deceived.
There are those who would divide you into factions,
those who would corrupt you and those who would seduce
you to a lesser faith.
"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always
to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason
of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:"
(1 Peter 3:15)
CUT THE ROPES!
Put Christ in the center of your life, and plan all other things around Him!
