As you know much of our Christian training has to be done by us. When we are hurting we tend to quit or not practice Christian training. It is easy to let go when we are hurting. It is easy to say this can wait for another day. Everyday someone is going to hurt us. Everyday we are going to be put to the test. That is the moment when, what we have been learning we put into practice.
Do you want to know how effective your Christian training is? The way you respond to situations shows how well we are practicing our Christianity. We are not going to be perfect all the time, however, we need to get better all the time. We need to be improving and to be growing as a Christian.
“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18)
