About 4 and a half years ago, I started a journey. I began an epic trial, I was convinced that I should do a triathlon. Since then I have participated in at least one per year. I love the sport. Not because I win, not because I don't. I love it because it teaches me lessons about myself. I have learned what it means to push on, even if I don't want to. I have learned that it doesn't matter your age, if you have the desire you can push forward to the end. I have learned that I can do things I never thought possible.
This can relate to our Christian journey. For one thing, triathlons are much harder if you don't train daily. It's the same with our spiritual journey. It must be a daily exercise. Without a daily commitment to training for a race, one would quickly fail. Without a daily walk with God, one would quickly fail. Some have the impression that once we give our lives to God we are good no matter what, this cannot be farther from the truth.
Daily we need to build our relationship or daily we will fall away from God.
Read: John 15:1-17
What does the word abide imply? What happens when a plant does not continually have nourishment from the roots? Genesis 5:22 talks about Enoch walking with God, what does the Bible mean when it talks about a walk?
Prayer: Lord God, give me the desire today, to build a relationship with You. Send your Holy Spirit that He may live in me, that I may be drawn closer to my Savior.
How often do we wonder, "Where am I going? or What is my purpose?" In our day to day life, in our inner walk, many of us are looking for a purpose. You may be here because you want answers. You may be here because you truly want an Epic Walk. For whatever your reason, I am glad you are here. Read on. Enjoy our daily homework and hopefully, you can find more purpose, and begin an Epic Walk.
