I decided to read the book of Philemon today since it is just one chapter. Usually a verse or two pops out at me and I study them further. However, this time I read through the chapter and got nothing. Tonight I decided to glance at it again and here is the verse I found.
Vs. 6: I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.
At first there doesn't seem to be anything out of the ordinary about this verse but the thing that caught my eye was the dependence of the understanding on sharing our faith. From what I understand, the more we share our faith, the more we understand the good things we have in Christ.
As we see God using our lives to change lives, we realize the amazingness of our God.
I haven't been doing a very good job of intentionally living out my faith for Christ. Does everyone get caught up in life and forget what our purpose is? It's so silly to think that there is meaning in this life apart from Christ. Why then do we put so much value into things that eternally don't matter, and can't find time for the things that do? I know I'm guilty of that.
