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: Biblical Empowering (Securing A Lifeline)
Our Human Weakness: We are ill-disciplined (1 Tim 4:7-11)
Some things come easily – for example, laziness in activity and relationships. Put in some effort. Train! Physical effort is of some value. Godliness has benefits in all areas, both in the here and now as well as for eternity. Train hard. No pain, no gain. Go all out for living the Christ-like life.
