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
The Resulting Problem: We start well but finish poorly (2 Chr 26:3-5, 16-21)
Like King Uzziah, there are many stories of followers of God who start well but finish poorly. In some ways King Uzziah was a victim of his own success. It is easy for us to commence the Christian journey recognising our total dependence on God but sometimes success and recognition leads us to take the glory that rightly belongs to God. Ask the Lord to keep you humble and continue to recognise your dependence upon God, and give him all the glory.
