Finding Christ in the Kitchen – Day 2 Faith
If you are just joining us you can start the Finding Christ in the Kitchen series here at the introduction along with some free printable’s. We will be spending two days on each of the 7 topics in the Devotional part of this series…just wanted to give you a heads up on that.
We last pondered God’s gift of faith and that trusting God without reason = faith.
Do you believe that faith is a gift?
Why do you think God gives this gift without favor to anyone. (answer in Ephesians 2:8-9) You are right, because it’s a gift! We don’t ask for gifts, they are just given right? Well my kids ask all the time, but generally a gift is something that is just given.
This faith gift is given freely from God so that we may not boast of our own gifts and talents including how much faith we have, but realize that all come from Him – the creator of all things. So that we may humble ourselves before Him and ask for his help.
“But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” James 4:6
Let’s touch for a moment on pride. Yep..the big “P” Pride was a dominant force in my family while I was growing up – unfortunately It keeps us very far from God. I could right a whole book alone on pride – believe me. God has caused me to deal with it in my own life, through MANY hard circumstances..
What does this have to do with finding Christ in the kitchen? Well do you want Gods help in the kitchen or do you want to go it alone… Me? I want, no I NEED Gods help…even in the kitchen.
Answer these quick questions:
- Do you have pride?
- I’m talking about the kind of pride that is stubborn, independent and defiant?
Think about this before you move on..because it WILL stand in the way of your relationship with God..
When we have pride we don’t need faith, do we? We count on ourselves to be capable of doing all things and we leave God out. This is not faith my friend..
In one sentence…What keeps you far from God? Talk to God about it will you..journal it out..even if it is one sentence..
