Living Our Lives to Glorify Him

A sustaining faith is possible if there is a connection to the Vine. As shared in the post “Being Baptized into His Name”, there were twelve disciples that Paul met at Ephesus who knew about repentance but not about receiving the Holy Spirit.

There are difficulties we face daily … a family member is sick, a rough day at work, the need to balance tasks at work, home, or school. When we face these difficulties and turn them over to God, that’s when greatness begins.

Let us ask the Holy Spirit for ideas and the ability to implement these ideas. Let us also look for ways to build up our faith and find ways to share with as many people around the world as possible. Then, more and more will be connected to the ONE with all the resources needed.

Today, we have at our fingertips the use of technology that gives us the ability to share in ways Paul could only dream about. Here is just one example of the use of technology to inspire: Something in the Water – Carrie Underwood.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. – Colossians 2:6-7
