Teaching and Training, Day 30

Consistency. I can’t tell you how many conversations I have each day talking about the importance of consistency. Read 2 Timothy 3:14-17.

There are so many amazing truths in these four verses. I could separately discuss each and every one of them. However, for today, this verse stands out to me. Are we being consistent in what we do? Are we standing firm and continuing on as we do the things that we should be doing?

So often, the Christian life is difficult and frustrating, and life happens and that can be really challenging. However, God calls us to consistently follow through on the things that we do. Are we walking the walk every single day? The way in which we conduct ourselves on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday… all through the week; that matters. Are we being consistent?

I know that God desires to see us work through and improve. However, we can’t do this on our own. Only through Christ can we level out these areas of inconsistency and ultimately experience the growth in Christ that he desires. How can we continue to grow in our obedience and surrender to Christ, then grow in our consistency in both?
