1 Thessalonians 3:10 (KJV) 10 Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?
We desire to effectively and efficiently disciple our brothers and sisters in Jesus. We want to do the best we can to help each other grow in our walk. And spending time with each other is essential to this. Discipleship somehow works better when our disciples see us and are able to not only read and hear about what we teach, but see how we exemplify our teachings. They see how our beliefs transform us from glory to glory.
We all still need to grow. Each one still has this “gaps in faith” that are slowly filled through continuous learning of the Word. God has provided us each other. God is an omniscient Father desiring to teach us, instruct us, lead us and guide us. He left us with the written Word and sent us His Holy Spirit as more than sufficient helps in this. He wants us to live the best life we can live—one that’s fruitful, growing, and powerful,
We need divine guidance. Forks in the road are everywhere; convincing voices abound; it’s very easy to stray from the straight and narrow. We humbly admit: as long as we’re on earth, even to the best of our abilities, we’ll continue having blind spots—gaps in faith. It’s just right that we first and foremost humble ourselves and receive faithful instructions from those our loving Father provide as our disciplers. Then freely we give what we freely receive. As we’re helped decrease our faith gaps, we help others to do the same. Altogether we grow in our doctrine and practice. Deceptions come, hardships hit, but we remain straight and strong.
