Applications Of the Like Precious Faith
(begun by RandyP )
As part of our pcarr:FoundationsOfTheLikePreciousFaith series I would like to present to you some thoughts on applying this type of faith forward into your daily life. I am in the process of collecting some general examples together. With enough of these examples the hope is that you will be able to see some directions for you to head with your faith moving forward into fruitful spiritually derived actions.
If you are looking for a place to start, I would say to begin applying these things to your most urgent needs of the day. For some of you that would mean battling your addictions. For others that would mean pulling your marriage back from the rock shoreline. For some that might mean coming to terms with a destructive trait or issue; somebody else it may just be finding the confidence to go onward. There are a whole host of issues that we could be dealing with here, but not one that is beyond the scope of this foundational "like precious faith".
Start out a step at a time, one day at a time, let the success of the one day propel you into the next day, build and build and become established in the faith forward knowledge and skill set.
Before we get too deep into this it will be helpful to review what we all ready know and start filling in some of the context. If you haven't already browse through the pcarr:FoundationsOfTheLikePreciousFaith series with it's links. We will be coming back to those resources and studies over and over.
- Here is the general form from there on out as found in kjv@2Peter:1
- Building up the Righteousness of God kjv@2Peter:1:1-4
- Building up the Like Precious Diligence's kjv@2Peter:1:5-7
- Building in key feedback points and remembrance agents kjv@2Peter:1:8-15
- Building on the foundations of scripture and the prophets. kjv@2Peter:1:16-21
What we'd be looking for are ways of building this understanding of His Righteousness up. It will begin for most with the simple presumption that God is righteous. We pursue that further in our study and contemplations as to how that is actually so. Once grasped we can better search out where His arm is being revealed and what resources He has provided for become fruitful in our difficulty.
So we are looking into each of these diligence's daily. Like building blocks we are stringing these items together to prepare ourselves and formulate our battle plan for the day. Faith is bridged by the combination of these diligence's over into real and positive actions.
So we are searching out honest and reality based evidences that we are on track and moving forward. We return to these elements to measure our growth and when there is little or no growth Peter points us to key "lack of fruit" indicators. We schedule into our daily/weekly/monthly devotions time to reflect, pray over and be reminded.
So we are looking for the real life uses of the Knowledge of Christ. We find them in the scriptures and the prophets and we see them in the movements of real today believers the world over. Not every Christian yet has this boldness. Our job is to show them in our own lives why that they should.
As always, you have the many valuable resources of the pcarr:FoundationsOfTheLikePreciousFaith series and more available to help make your inquiries more productive.
Look through some of these composites to see the like precious faith as it moves into action. There may be something that you will find in here similar to what you are up against. If not you will at least see the overall direction. More will be added as they are developed.
