Considering the day in which we live, the challenges presented on a moment by moment basis, how else can a Christian walk – but in the Spirit? In order to walk correctly, as you and I should as Christians, there is another element which needs precede the walking, which is TALKING to our Heavenly Father. We, by means which we still have yet to understand, have the ability to do so because of our Faith in Jesus Christ as our Saviour.
We are living in a society SO bombarded with technology, presentation and noise from all directions, that if we are not “Praying Always”, there may not be prayer going on much at all. I’ve had to learn to keep my whispering so it can be heard personally and have found an amazing difference in my response to not only the things that challenge me, but the ones that are challenging others. Not just those that have a direct relation to me, but others – no matter who they are!
My attention was called to this verse of Scripture with a posting from one of our Missionaries for a Pastor who has had blood vessels burst in the brain. At the very bottom of the Web page created to keep others up to date with his prognosis and care was the following verse:
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”
Ephesians 6:18 | King James Version
The updates for this Pastor’s condition is a reminder to all of us of how we should proceed through our day. As we get to each step in the day, whether that be ours or of one another that we know about, we can indeed (and should) make our moments count on the part of others and ourselves in Prayer.
Challenges For Us | In The Spirit
There are ten (10) focal points in the New Testament for this Series:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit
…restore such an one in the spirit
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind
Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit
…yet am I with you in the spirit
…justified in the Spirit
…live according to God in the spirit
The verses tell us about living and how we should live, not just for others and ourselves, but before a Holy, Loving God! Will you and I today commit that with each step we take to keep the conversation going… The benefits are too many to count, so will the rewards be!
