How do you live out your faith in your every day life? What do you do daily to feed your faith? Do you have some daily faith practices? Or are you asking why you should practice your faith daily? Well, Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread (Matthew 6:11, AMP). And that’s not just bread we are talking about here. It’s anything and everything we need in our lives. Daily prayer helps us to remember we truly are dependent on God. For real.

Daily faith practices keep us focused on God and what matters most. We need to find our own daily faith routines and keep them faithfully.

Discipleship doesn’t make us giddy, does it? Rather it is something we see as boring or tiresome, something we are not too keen on doing. But discipleship is not a chore, it’s an invitation to get to know our Maker better. It’s a start of the lifelong process of becoming like Jesus. How come it’s not a chore then, making yourself better, more pleasing to God? Because it’s not your chore, you are not making anything out of yourself, God is. So relax. Breath in some glorious grace.

Don’t you ever wish there would be a refresh button for your life? That by only pushing the button everything would just miraculously sort out just fine? But, yeah, I  guess that’s not how life works. But we have not been left alone to deal with the mess we’ve made.

We need to build our life on Jesus. Nothing else will recover, renew and refresh our lives. No magic button.

Some people don't like the fact that faith is receiving. We can't earn salvation no matter what, we can only receive it by grace through faith in Jesus.

How amazing it is that faith is receiving. And not trying, trying, and trying. Faith is always and forevermore receiving. It is always God first. Again and again, God pouring out blessings upon blessings on us. Faith is receiving God’s gifts: his love, his grace, his peace, his joy. Once we’ve filled to the brim with God’s grace, it is our turn to reciprocate and love God and others. But it is always God first.

One of the best things of Christianity is that we are not just saved, made right with God but we are also made whole. Wholeness is something everyone in the world wants. We want to feel complete. We want our lives to be wholesome. We want to be happy, whole, and peaceful. The way to wholeness is available for us in Christ. But only in Christ.

Do you know that you’re called to bear witness? When you have come to know the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and when you – by grace – believe it, you are truly free. But what are you supposed to do with this knowledge, this joy, this freedom?

The Great Commission says make disciples of all nations. Have we even made them in our own nation? Come on Christians; Missions exist because worship doesn't: people don't worship the God that made them. We're Ambassadors. -Lecrae, Send Me

Do you think God’s promises are unrealistic? That it’s impossible to think you could ever overcome anything just because of Jesus? I have news for you. The name of Jesus is more powerful than anything in this world. How do I know this? The Bible tells me so many times over and I’ve experienced it in my life myself. Christ is the source of strength for anyone who wants to be his.
