Genuine Faith


“Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you.”

II Corinthians 13:5 (NLT)

It is easy to go through a day and never exercise our faith. We get busy and before we know it, the day is over. When we look back we see that we never even thought about God. You may be thinking, “But what does God have to do with my job?” How about everything? You see, we live for God. No matter what our job is, we have a higher calling. That is what Paul was trying to say. He said to examine ourself to see if our faith is real. We live by faith; that means we work by faith. There is life and death going on everyday in every place of employment. People are in need of the love of God. Businesses need the direction of God. We make decisions every day and we need the wisdom of God. Paul wrote, “Surely you know Jesus Christ is among you.” He is saying the same to us. Aren’t we aware that Christ is among us? Jesus said it best. He said, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” Life is more than our job. It is a calling, a mission, a life for Jesus Christ. He is the vine, we are the branches. Today let’s remain in Him and produce the fruit we were destined to produce.

Lord, help me keep my faith genuine. Help me today to be conscious of You in all that I do.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
