Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Pass It On
The Radical Re-Orientation: Loyalty and Faithfulness (Rev 3:7-13)
“At what stage in the race did you make the decision to endure and persevere?” the long-distance athlete was asked as he crossed the finishing line. He replied, “That important decision was made the day I commenced my mental and physical preparations for the race. I envisaged the finishing line in my mind with every preparatory step for the event. Each step was a goal, and each goal was a step. The satisfaction of completing the race became my inspiration and motivation.” Friends, as Christian Believers, let’s run this race of life in such a way so as to win the prize in Christ Jesus – those words, “Well done! Good and faithful servant. Enter into my rest”.
