The Walk of Faith
Some think walking by faith only has to do wtih bold acts of power in the Holy Spirit. While these are part of our faith journey, walking by faith also call us to everyday interaction with and leading of God’s people. Paul left Titus in charge of resolving the problems in the church in Crete. He charged him to confront those living in ungodliness, teaching deceptive doctrines, and casuing division in the church. Carrying out this demanding responsibility no doubt required great faith. Leaders must walk in faith as they interact with and lead God’s people. In faith, rely on God when it is necessary to confront any form of ungodliness, remembering Jesus’ love as your motive and example.
Understand that we all face problems that need to be resolved and set in order. In faith, go to God, pray, and ask Him to use you and give you wisdom and insight that will help to solve the problems you or those around you face.
Remember that the goal of all rebuke is to restore the person in deception back to sound, healthy faith. Give correction in a manner that will bring restoration.
Encourage faith, exhort people to live in Godliness, expose deceptive doctrine and divisive behavior, convict through the power of the Spirit, and reprove in order to restore to full, strong faith.
warn those who bring division in the church to stop. The Bible’s language is strong: after one or two warnings by leadership, fellowship is to be broken with one who continues to be divisive. Understand that division inn the church is seen as perverse behavior. Seek unity in the body of Christ.
If you haven’t accepted Christ as your savior yet and would like to do so, please pray these words:
“Jesus, I acknowledge I am a sinner and I am in need of salvation. Thank you for your sacrifice on the cross. Come into my heart and make me new. Thank you for your gift of eternal life. Help me to learn to walk with you now. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
If you prayed that prayer, please tell someone that can guide you in your next steps in your relationship with Jesus.
