The Hill at the Foot of the Mountain

I was in a conversation with my small group about spiritual growth last week, and God is really showing me where we have a tendency to become complacent in our walks with Jesus Christ.  We have a tendency to look back at where God has brought us and where we are now and think that we are in a good place with God.  We look at what had been in the past and what is currently happening in the present and feel very comfortable about it.  The problem is that we become complacent.  We become comfortable in our relationships with Jesus.  We do not look at the depths of where God desires to lead us through our relationship with Him, but instead we sit and become fine with how our relationship looks now.  It is like sitting at the top of a small hill at the foot of a mountain.  We think that we are in a place of great depth since our relationship has ascended to the top of the hill, but we fail to miss the mountain in front of us that is the place where our relationship with Jesus can grow to.  Are you sitting on hills when God desires to lead you up the mountain?

    Keep pushing forward Ben. I don’t know you and have never even been in the south, but I know ministry and know that everyone needs encouragement while running the race. God will honor those who honor Him, sometimes it just takes time.

    God bless you and your effort as you fight for the kingdom.

    Keep pushing forward Ben. I don’t know you, but I know ministry, and realize that everyone needs encouragement in our field. God will honor you if you stay steadfast in your obvious aim to honor Him. Keep up the good writing. And I enjoy the different Spurgeon references I’ve seen!

    Keep it up my friend.
