Bible Verse: Ephesians 4:13

Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

REFLECT and RESPOND:
No matter where you're at in your faith marathon, today is a great day to set your sights on where you want to grow. Write down your goal(s) - maybe you want to grow in faith, knowledge, or joy. Then focus on today's leg of the race, reflecting on Ephesians 4:13.

PRAYER:
Father, thank you for this opportunity to grow. Please grant me patience, perseverance, and peace as I trust you to move me forward in faith one day at a time! Amen.

I want to grow in knowing God's love for me. The Bible says "that we may know". I think it is in John. I used to have this assurance, but not so much anymore. It makes me so sad and I find myself chasing after Jesus constantly instead of resting in my heart with Him.

I want to grow in confidence that my salvation is secure. In my past I got lazy about my relationship with the Lord. I committed sins that I had repented from when I had first accepted Him as my Lord and Savior many years ago. When I read my Bible I'm convinced that I've committed unforgivable sins, yet I've had an awakening and I've earnestly repented this time and love the Lord! As I read it, it doesn't matter that I've repented, they are still unforgivable and I will not enter the gates of heaven.

I'm from two religious backgrounds who take opposite stands only the ultimate results on Judgment Day - which doesn't help my understanding.

Somewhere along the way in my walk with Christ, I think I stumbled and hit my head. The concept of seeking God's will daily just slipped out of my mind. I guess I thought that by some spiritual osmosis I would gather what I needed along my way. I definitely have come to the realization of the importance of seeking God daily for everything and not just waiting till I am struggling.

My goal is to grow in joy. I think about the scandalous amount of grace that has been shown to me. I want to reflect that same grace through my joy.
