Effective Faith

and I pray that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ’s sake. — Philemon 1:6

How is your walk of faith? Are you growing so as to be effective for the sake of Christ? Prayer is fellowship with God which is necessary to see things from God’s perspective, humble us, and to surrender our lives for His purpose.

Fellowship of faith is fellowship with other believers so as to encourage, be encouraged and to sharpen and be sharpened. Along with that is accountability.

Fellowship of faith is filling our mind and hearts with the Word of God. It teaches us His way and allows us to serve in a manner worthy of our Lord by the Holy Spirit’s guidance and bringing to remembrance what we have studied.

Again, how is your faith? “I pray that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ’s sake”.

Face The Music

But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.

For it is written,

“As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall give praise to God.”

So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God. — Romans 14:10-12

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that   each one may be recompensed for  his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. — 2 Corinthians 5:10

But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. — Matthew 12:36

For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and will then repay every man according to his deeds.           — Matthew 16:27

And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.                 — Revelation 20:12

Convicting words. When every person who ever lived stands before God at judgement we will all be humbled. There will be no “I am better than, richer than, more successful than, etc.”

And the righteous will be right there with the unrighteous. Are you ready to account for the life you are living? Are you living for Christ or content in believing that “believing in Christ” is enough and you can live life your way?

Everyone will be held accountable. Are you ready to face the music?
