Keeping the Faith

By Rob Albright

    Jesus is Lord and He calls us to an obedient faith (Romans 1:5; 16:26). This submissive attitude is demonstrated when one obeys the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus by being baptized into Christ (Acts 2:38; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Romans 6:3-5). At this point, the Lord adds us to His spiritual family,the church (Acts 2:47).
    As Christians, we are to continue to be obedient as we follow God’s way for life, worship, and working in His kingdom. We must realize, there will always be the temptation to become complacent and that opens the door for Satan to cause us problems. There is that danger of falling away (Galatians 5:4)
    Becoming unfaithful doesn’t happen all of a sudden. We can take those”small” steps away from God’s will and before we know it, we are farther and farther away from God. Complacency may not appear to be a big deal at first, but then it can lead to a big problem.
    Let’s not be satisfied with anything less than doing the will of God. Ecclesiastes 12:13-”The conclusion, when all has been heard is: fear God and keep His commandments.”
