Holding the Wheel

Good driving takes continual effort.

If we occasionally fail to stop at a light or overreach the speed limit, we get a minor reminder from our friendly enforcement officer.

If we fail to correct our poor driving mistakes, we’ll eventually get our license taken away. We’re a danger to ourselves and others, and we can no longer be allowed behind the wheel.

Our Christian walk is much the same. It takes continual effort to emulate Christ.

Hebrews 10:26 gives us our fair warning.

“For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins.”

If we continually fail to stop when our conscience warns us we’re about to go too far, we’re going to be apprehended.

If we live too high and too fast, the sirens will go off, and we’ll be called to task. We’ve become a danger to ourselves and others.

Christ will move his church on without us.

We are chosen to be participants in the work of Jesus on this earth. Our part is to choose to live a holy life, and that means we forsake intentional wrongdoing and deliberate sin.

We stop at all the stoplights, and we keep under the speed limit.

When we live responsibility in Christ, our Lord will remain by our side.

Excerpt of the Day

When the death of trust scars our hearts, we must find even greater kindness to heal the wound.
