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)
The Resulting Problem: We end up with a weariness of the soul (2 Cor 4:1-8)
The easy way out is appealing. Don’t be fooled, it’s a mirage. Godliness seems to be tough going. Is it worth it? Why do good things happen to bad people? Aging can be de-humanising – I am past my peak. Is there really any valued future? Living the God-life can be so demanding. Why bother? The present is a mirage. It’s temporary. Reality is in things eternal. Look forward!
