I think sometimes we come to church and want to have a breakthrough moment. We think we need an emotional touch. No, we don’t. We just need to worship God whether we feel like it or not. We need to understand that the Christian life is a walk of faith.
People have a watch that gives them constant feedback, telling us how many steps I’ve taken and whether I’ve reached my fitness goal. Wouldn’t it be great to have a watch that tells us to read the Bible and pray, that keeps us on track in our spiritual lives?
I think one of the best definitions of being a Christian is, to borrow Nietzsche’s phrase, a “long obedience in the same direction.” It’s just putting one foot in front of the other and walking with the Lord every day. Some days you feel it. And some days you don’t.
That’s because our objective as Christians is to walk with God and live by faith. Are you walking with God today?
