Stepping stones to Heaven!

Posted by appolus on March 10, 2013

Imagine you are crossing a great river. The world is on one side and you are headed toward the other side, the heavenly side. Each time you are obedient, each time you turn your back on sin, another stepping stone appears before you and you move forward towards your goal. One step at a time on the road to glory. It is by obedience that we make forward progress towards a deeper walk with Him and overcome. Yet brokenness, submission, surrender and love must be the building blocks of our obedience If we simply try to be obedient without first taking these steps we will discover that there is an obedience that binds us in chains and the weight of these chains will drag us down and drown us. Yet, obedience born out of love and a desire to please the one that we love frees us and fulfills us and propels us on.

    My growth in Christ or my “stepping stones” that you refer to is really about Christ in me rather than my response of obedience. The more I focus on Christ than myself is when I move forward — whether in obedience, greater faith, or just holding on to my faith.

      Hi Dave, definitely agree to focusing on The Lord and looking to Him to overcome all things, whether that be besetting sin or trials in life. My focus on this piece is about a love relationship and what flows out of that. The point I was trying to make is that as we move closer to the object of our love the more we want to be like Him. Of course, we all begin the journey when we are genuinley born again. So, there are babes in Christ and mature saints and everything in between. How we deal with sin is an age old topic. At any point in your walk did you struggle with sin brother, perhaps you could share ? …..bro Frank

    Thank you for this post. This is a confirmation of what I believe the Lord was showing me yesterday. I tried “describing” this on my post yesterday but my words were not adequate. Blessings! Ann
