Keep the Faith

a 10 part series on Psalm 119:9-16. Read entire series HERE.

"God has called us to live holy lives" (1 Thessalonians 4:7), but it's easy to stray if our devotion is less than wholehearted:
"I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands." Psalm 119:10

Psalm 11:10, Back-slidding
Many people come to faith in Jesus with fervor and single-mindedness but gradually slip back into their former ways of life.

It's usually a gradual move, a slow change in one's perspective, a continual giving of one's heart to "other gods."

Some methods of evangelism attract people to the Gospel by promising peace, joy, love, hope, and purpose and never explaining the cost of following Christ (Luke 14:27-33). 

Perhaps that's why our present Christian culture often overlooks and excuses weak faith and back-sliding.

Let's make sure that we never lower God's standards to suit our lifestyle. Instead, let's judge our goals, values, and "treasures" with Scripture.

  1. Good word brother. found this o Pinterest and it follows along with the topic of our next outreach event in Knoxville TN. I am part of a ministry called Metal Mission of Knoxville and we have periodic events where Christian bands play in a club and I get to give a message from the word. A major theme of our upcoming event is the cost of discipleship. Feel free to check us our on Facebook. Be blessed!
