John 14:15 – 17
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray for the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
Start is the base of all things. It is essential to have good start to get a good and better result in everything. If we can start correctly we can have correct results in the future. This is important for us to know, that starting on the faith with correct foundation is the best. How then can we start the foundation of our faith correctly?
- Faith founded in Christ.
A person who builds his house on the rock will always be intact. When the storm comes it will stand on its foundation. Like this, if a person stands on the faith with its foundation in Christ it will be unmovable.
Many people understands life like, “problems should be solved”. Because of this, people focused their life in solving their problems. They care nothing more than themselves and important things of their lives. If this kind of person can realize that he/she is not living in this world for his/her own self interests and that he/she need the ever living God. That person will eventually think differently.
- Christ-centered continuing Faith.
Our faith must continue and still be centered to God and in Christ. Many of the believers nowadays experience faith being insufficient this is why they do not enjoy life of an evangelist. There are things we must consider in order to begin this faith.
First, we have to cover our spirit with the strength that comes from the Gospel. Second, we have to begin praying for the Kingdom of God. We have to pray for specific prayer topics that is prioritizing God’s work. In this prayer we should be receiving God’s guidance and the filling of the Holy Spirit for us to be able to overcome even through experiencing difficult times.
Then, the enjoyment of Gospel in our lives will start to take place. Let us not be frightened of the problems but be courageous about God being with you. True happiness will come in all things that we do.
- Enjoyment of Prayer.
Prayer needs to be enjoyed in our lives. To enjoy it we do not have to be burdened by it. To enjoy prayer we only have to take it as important work for us. Through viewing it like this we can understand God’s work, His time schedule and all His plans.
Prayer connects us to God to all things that we do. We have to see God’s guidance all throughout our lives for us to be victorious in all things also. God as our creator knows us better than we know Him. This is why we have to continue our devoting ourselves to prayer, since prayer is the source of our spiritual strength. Enjoying prayer can bring us true happiness even through problems.
This should be done to be able have start in all things correctly. As many people who were called by God set the examples, entrusting everything in God’s control will make everything done beautifully and perfectly.
God bless us.
