SHIPWRECKED FAITH?


1 Timothy 1:19


"Holding on to faith and a good conscience. Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith." NIV


"Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck." KJV


Being a Christian is much more than one would think. God did His part by sending His Son to die a humiliating death, rise again, and conquer sin forever. But we must freely choose to accept that sacrifice by bearing fruit showing we are alive in Him. We do that by keeping a strong grasp on our faith, living Godly lives, and keeping clean consciences. Those who fail to do this completely destroy their faith.


Heavenly Father, we have the Word that shows us how to live righteously and increase our faith. Help us, Lord to always be aware that we can get distracted or complacent in our walk if we do not hold fast to our faith and seek to grow and mature in you. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Satan knows our individual weaknesses. That alone often makes it hard to do the right thing. Thanks, Dr Bobbi.

Since we all KNOW right from wrong, it is our choice to not listen to the satan influences.

Good share.
