One A Day – Stand in the Gap - [Against the Odds] – Brent Phillips – Encounter Houston
God’s word needs to become who we are and how we are to do things.
Bible study should never be something that we go to learn some scriptures and go about our day-to-day lives, but that we come and allow His word to transform our lives and to do everything that we can to make a difference in the lives of others we come in contact with on a daily basis.
Are you a one a day type of person?
We no longer just talk about helping other. We have been called and equipped to go and help others rebuild their walls.
James 2:14-17 "What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless."
You can talk about your faith all that you want. But can anyone see your faith when you are going about your daily business? Because what Paul says is “faith without works is dead.”
Many of us are probably not as far long in our faith as we would like to think we are because a lot of us are talking about our faith but aren’t really doing that much to live out our faith. We talk a really good game but aren’t willing to put it to the test.
Does your faith convince anyone? Because; we will be held accountable for the information that we obtain while in bible study.
Ezekiel 22:30 "I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn’t have to destroy the land, but I found no one."
God was looking for someone to stand in the gap, someone that would take his righteousness and make a difference.
Where has The Lord sent you to make a difference in someone else’s life and you didn’t because you were to busy looking at yourself?
God is looking for a bunch of wall builders to stand in the gap and make a difference in this world. You aren’t just someone who attends bible study you are the resistance of darkness because of who Jesus Christ is in your life.
