Are you a seeker of the Lord Jesus Christ? Are you searching for meaning and purpose in your life? Do you wonder about God’s purposes and why he responds to people’s prayers in different ways?
The answers to these questions and many others that continue to confuse or conflict with our logical reasoning are written in the Bible’s scriptures. The question is how do we unlock those secrets and answers found in the Bible?
Anyone seeking a deeper and more meaningful relationship with God needs the Lord’s “Blessing of Enlightenment.” The Lord must open our hearts before our minds can possibly absorb true knowledge and understanding of spiritual truths. It is easy to get knowledge or facts and figures into your mind, but it is a much more difficult move to transfer all that knowledge into your heart, where the Lord re-interprets all that you think you know and understand according to his spiritual truths. We must be willing and open to being led by the Holy Spirit before we can grow in faith and truths. The Holy Spirit will help us and teach us to mirror our lives after the example set by our Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit begins by developing a new attitude in our mind set by helping us to begin seeking God’s will to prevail in our lives. We need to let go! Let God! Once we are willing to let God take complete and total control over our thoughts, actions, deeds and even our dreams, then the journey truly begins…
Are you ready and willing to begin on your faith journey? Will you stay the course on the narrow road? How do you navigate your life in order to remain set in your course on the narrow road? The secular world has many traps and various wide roads to detour your life from God’s narrow road. Only in Biblical scriptures will you find the answers you seek.
Let us now explore some of these Biblical scriptures in order to give us the proper guidance we need to navigate on the narrow road.
Let us begin with John 3:16:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Now let us look at Ephesians 2:8-10. Some people get confused about what it takes to be saved. All you need is God’s gift of grace to have true salvation. However, many believe that you need “Works” to further yourself in your faith walk. The problem is that they are confusing “Good Deeds” with doing “Works.” The difference is that we do “Good Deeds” in order to please God and show our gratitude to God for all he has done for us. So in essence, we respond to God’s love and blessings bestowed upon us by giving thanks to God and bestowing to others our love and giving to others by doing “Good Deeds” for their benefit. The “Good Deeds” are done of our free will and we do not expect anything in return, nor do we wish to receive accolades from anyone since God has already blessed us. Read James 2:14-26 “Faith and Deeds.”
Finally, let us look at Galatians 5:22-26 and Galatians 6:1-10. In these scriptures we learn about the Christian virtues that we receive from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. So you see God equips us with all that we ever need in order to serve him most effectively and efficiently as he guides us along that narrow road. The virtues that we receive are called the Fruits of the Spirit, which are Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control. Then in the subsequent passages we learn how to apply these virtues in our daily lives and in our relationships with others.
So in conclusion, how far and how fast your faith journey travels down that narrowing road depends upon how much you are willing to trust God.
