It’s the easiest thing in the world to compartmentalise our lives into “real life” and “faith life”. It’s an easy yet fatal mistake to make as a Christian. Our faith is either real or not. If we do not apply it to our everyday lives, then our faith is fake. Faith needs to be put into practice in our lives. It’s more than just talk. We can sound so holy when we talk about our faith in God and how we trust Him in everything, yet we are always making backup plans to help God out in case He doesn’t come through.
People of faith in scripture would have looked like total idiots if God didn’t come through in so many situations because they never had back-up plans. But that didn’t bother them because that’s what real faith is. Miracles happen when we step out in faith and trust God completely. Miracles don’t happen while we are waiting backstage, ready to help God out when He “messes” up.
So, it’s time to put our money where our mouths are. If we call ourselves Christians, we must live in faith. We either trust God or we don’t. Talk is cheap. The world needs to see our faith in action. Are you with me?
