Often times we quickly talk about being like Jesus as it relates to character,commitment to the father’s Kingdom, working of miracles and living supernaturally.
In the same vein,few look unto him for the perfecting or finishing of our faith.
We see mostly our humanity,our frailties, physical limitations or otherwise a we question our suitability for our calling. Oh, not too worry, this response to the call to tread the Isle of faith dates back to centuries.
Moses gave the excuse of his stammering condition, Gideon couldn’t reconcile his calling with his biological background, Sarah had laughed out loud on hearing of God’s reassurance of the promised child considering the biological clock of herself and Abraham, Apostle Paul had considered himself less than the least of all saints considering his gory past.
So I guess it’s understandable to naturally want to shirk the ‘burden’ of a life of faith.
The good news is that the bible has account of others who took this journey; they were called in weakness and God became their strength, we have an able and ever faithful high priest – Jesus Christ himself who is ever making intercession for saints,we have a living hope and an assurance that faithful is God who has promised .
So, it’s our generation and our turn to make a decision.
A life of faith or Faithless?
To be faithful or otherwise.
Faithfulness is not demanded of everybody.
Faithfulness is required of those under his yoke. His yoke is indeed easy and his burden light.
