Revisiting the footing of your faith and spirituality
Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action), (2 Timothy 3:16)
The importance of keeping the basis of our faith and spirituality firm and focused on the revelatory written word of God cannot be overemphasized in this hour.
The increased pressure of economic instability in the past ten to five years, mostly among Christians, warrants the necessity to reexamine the core footing of our spiritual knowledge, particularly the word of God.
While many have stopped attending churches, others who do, have result it to a mere religious rituals.
It’s been discovered that others, on the other hand, who claim to regularly read and study the word of God, hardly allow their knowledge of God’s word to shape, influence and motivate their daily lives decision.
Living according to the directive of God’s word does not happen spontaneously; Living according to the directive of God’s word is a disciplined learned act that must be habitually developed by people.
