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: Living for what really matters (Biblical Values)
Our human weakness: Going with the flow. (1 Sam 15:1-23)
Like Saul, we too are easily influenced by the voices of others—people we listen to, the voice of the world—both of which can influence us to do, say and be involved in things that are not consistent with God’s voice. It can be subtle and gentle and we must be vigilant to always be listening to God’s instruction to us and not getting caught up in a flow of life which is plainly disobedient to the will of God.
