Let's Trust God Above All

Trust is defined as a firm belief in the reliability of someone or something. Trust is truly an element out of any relationship that’s of great significance since it pertains to one’s own credibility, character, reputation, along with ability. The bottom line is that there can’t be any true relationship and friendship without at least some level of trust. Having said that, one thing that’s quite noticeable within Scripture is the fact that trust is something that God demands from us.

Let’s read these Scripture verses found in Proverbs chapter 3.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6).”

Before we move on, it’s important that we take a look at trust from a humanistic perspective. Let’s say that you’ve been doing all your best to let God mold you into the person that He wants you to be through complete submission and surrender to Him, and for whatever reason someone else just cannot trust you with something, it’s undoubtedly going to hurt you. The main reason is that you’d feel like that’s not representative at all of whom you are in Christ.

Living For Christ Must Be Our Top Priority

Living For Christ Must Be Our Top Priority

When it comes to the atonement that Jesus has provided us on the cross, He didn’t give His life for us, so that we could go on and continue to live the same kind of unacceptable and detestable life that we once used to live. Our salvation is based upon God pulling us out of the destructive state we were once in which had brought spiritual death into our lives by giving us eternal life. The real issue had to do with our sinfulness that had put us into such a terrible situation where we had no desire at all to live in a way that pleases God.

It’s important to realize that Christ’s death on the cross truly highlights the severity and seriousness of our sins committed against a holy and righteous God. The good news is that the death of Jesus has made it absolutely possible for us to come out of the ungodly state we’d been prior to being saved and step into holiness. Christ came and laid down His life for us in order to purchase us from an eternal debt that we could have never paid on our own, so that we could live for Him alone. That simply means that we owe Him everything.
