Always On The Move

To love the Word of God is to want to study it deeply for a purpose. We read to understand. We read to move forward in our Christian walk. It was encouraging to be at church last night where so many were gathered for the purpose of teaching, learning, enjoying, and memorizing the Word. This all contributes to our purpose in life, namely a deeper knowledge of God in Christ. If this is consistently neglected, as is the pattern for some professing Christians, then Jesus Christ himself becomes a stranger. He takes on the appearance of an intruder, frightening and oppressive. Even his motives and intentions are questioned. Doubt creeps in. Indolence in our pursuit of Christ results in losing ground in the area of sanctification. The world, the flesh, and the Devil never rest. If we stop marching forward, the moving sidewalk of a fallen world slides us quietly back into sin.

One thought on “Always On The Move

  1. Hi Jon,

    Walking against the flow of a moving sidewalk illustrates beautifully ones Christian walk in a fallen world. I pray we all continue to move forward to our purpose in life, “a deeper knowledge of God in Christ” through the diligent study of His Word. Lord, let us never stop marching forward, lest “the moving sidewalk of a fallen world slides us quietly back into sin.”

    In Christ,

    Mike
