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: Finishing Well
Our Human Weakness: We tolerate compromise (Rev 2:18-29)
The church at Thyatira was commended for their deeds, love, faith, service and perseverance yet had been compromised by accepting and practising some of the deviant and ungodly practices of their day. How easy is it for us to take on board, alongside God’s values, the values and teachings of our secular society? As salt and light in this world, God asks each of us to hold on to his teachings and instructions and to live pure and holy lives.
