I struggle each day with being consistent in my Christian example. Like many, I make decisions that may not be the best. I am not, purposely, doing so. However, I need to be consistent. I need to look for ways to continue living in a way that shows me to be steady, dependable, and true.
When I reach out to God, I ask him to help me be steady in my words and actions, constant in the study of the word, and substantially filled with his knowledge and wisdom. It is the assistance I need in my daily life in order to live in his Grace.
To others, I need to be dependable, reliable, and certain of my belief, conviction, and salvation. It is important to be able to be observed by others and allow them to see God’s love, faith, and grace abiding in me.
To be true in our lives, we must be true in our hearts. It is our hearts that are guided by the Word of God, the Holy Spirit in us, and His everlasting love.
