The life of faith is a life of trust and obedience to God. The Christian faith is not some kind of "magic" that makes bad things disappear and good things appear. It is a life of obedience to God's word. We need the power of the Holy Spirit to give us ears to hear and power and grace to obey from hearts of love. That is truly the key to a rock solid life!

How do we respond to being wronged? Do we seek retribution, restitution, justice? In this passage of scripture a former slave, Onesimus, while on the run for theft from his master, Philemon, runs into the Apostle Paul and comes to faith in Christ. With this personal letter from Paul, we see the gospel of reconciliation and restoration on display. As much as we have been wronged, we have never been wronged as much as we have wronged Christ.

We live in a world that is constantly fighting for our attention and sending messages of what it thinks our priorities should be. When things take the place of God, it becomes and idol. The stand that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego take at the risk of their very lives still speaks volumes to us today.When we stand for what is right, God always gives us the grace to stand, even when we face a fiery furnace of affliction.

One of the most comforting and assuring attributes of God is His faithfulness. Difficult times and crushing situations can overwhelm us all and hard times are no respecter of persons. In those days of difficulty and despair, remember the faithfulness of God in Christ to bring grace, help, and hope in our time of need, God's promises are blood wrought, blood bought and blood backed. God is faithful.

Have you ever wondered how you as a Christian fit into the "Church?"The Bible describes us as a body which has many members but one body.The many members aren't working as soloist, they work together in a God ordained symphony. With Christ as our new identity, we have been brought into a new family where we live out our faith with "one-another." Living any other way will suck the life, joy, and fullness of God's family design.
