2010 Constantly Seeking God Challenge
Colossians 2:6-7: As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
On the 20th of September 2009 I posted my first Journey Deeper into God’s Word which was on Galatians 5:24-25. Nearly everyday since God has taken me on the a stunning journey. I have found myself nothing short of amazed by what God has taught me, deeply challenged to face my weaknesses and try harder – all towards seeking to truly come into the presence of God.
And in 2010 I want to build on my learning so far!! As Colossians 2:6-7 says, I want to be ‘rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith’ which is about building on what I already have learnt and strengthening my faith. When you look at the greek behind the three words, rooted, built and stablished, a common theme emerges: being constant. Wow! This stands out. My faith in Christ needs to be constantly strong, and I need to be constantly focused on God.
My journey deeper into the Bible came from God giving me a word: prepare. To prepare for the next stage in my life. This sense of needing to prepare remains, but now as well as this God is calling me to be constant.
I am exercising a lot at the moment; most weeks see me exercising at least 4 times a week. Over the past number of months I have really got into a good habit, a good routine and this has been amazing for my health! The key to this renewed health is my care of myself is constant. Aside from the few times I have been sick, I have maintained my focus on working out. My faith needs the same constant determination. I can see that I need to remain constant with my walk with Jesus, never wavering, always focused, determined on serving Him.
2010 is the year of being constant!
Constant Bible reading, constant prayer, constant confession of sins: constantly seeking God.
And I want to invite you to join me on the 2010 Constantly Seeking God Challenge.
This involves spending a minimum of an hour every day immersed in the Bible. Reading a passage, praying and carefully thinking about what the passage means personally. It also involves committing to pray throughout the day, to turn to prayer often. And finally it involves coming before God daily and confessing sin.
So do you want to join me in building up our faith? I invite you to take on the 2010 Constantly Seeking God Challenge.
