Faithful but….

03 Oct

Had a shift in perspective this week about the difference between faithfulness an devotion.

Rom shared with us from Acts 17:16-32. Paul saw that the people in Athens were deeply religious but worshipped an “unknown God” . He challenged us to ask ourselves whether we have been faithful and devoted to the Lord.

We can be faithful in the roles assigned to us, doing it well, professionally but maybe we have done all these things religiously to an “unknown God” , or we have done it just out of our own efforts to show off our capabilities?

It is a very real thing to ask ourselves..Just between us and God.

Another thing that came to my mind was..where does out identity lie?

who are we when there is no S&P, no BLC, no events, no cg, no service to prepare for.

Without all these..

Can we truly say that we have a relationship with God? what is it like?

    when there is no ministry involvement, the real test sets in..
    esp with the nature of work I am in..

    can only pray and ask god to examine our hearts.. 😀 take heart he will still shape us despite our failures and inadequacies..

    Yeah! Sarah, you are right… That which mark our devotion should be the things we do for God, but God himself and the time with shared with Him. May your understanding gives you strength and comfort.
