Living By Faith, Not By Sight

Living by faith, not by sight

"But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life."

1 Timothy 6:11-12, 17-19

Follow Me!

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. Luke 9:23 NIV

Jesus never said that the Christian life would be easy. Jesus said to pick up your cross and follow Him. Your cross is like no other. Only you can carry your cross and there is no other cross for you to carry in following Jesus. I cannot carry your cross, but I can help you along the way and encourage you. Jesus is the only One who can truly lift your burdens—your cross—and carry you through to victory. Jesus has already carried His cross to victory. And He said, “Follow Me”—to victory! If you’re not following the Leader— carrying your own cross to victory—then you’re going the wrong way—to defeat and despair.

Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. John 12:26 NIV

Jesus has reserved a place of honor for you in heaven as you diligently carry your burdensome cross here on earth. And Jesus will never forsake you or leave you and even though this life is tough, He has an abundant life promised for you. So don’t despair. Perseveringly carry your cross to victory, and relish in His peace and joy along the way.

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:29–30 NIV

Pick up your cross daily. Get firmly and inseverably yoked to Jesus. Follow Him to your victory. His best is for you.
