I imagine we have all heard the statement “What happens in vegas, stays in Vegas.” I think a lot of Christians have the same motto regarding their faith. They may not realize it. But their life style reflects it. Many church goers are spiritual people on Sunday. But away from church and home you would never know it.
Not only is it essential to our faith that we connect with God during the morning hour of our day. But it’s even more important what we do with what we learn once we leave the house. Once you leave the house you may be at work, at school, or a stay home parent. But at some point the 8 -5 part of your day kicks in. That’s the “once you leave the house” part of the day.
If we are going to live in a way that honors God during the 8 -5, I think we have to answer one very important question.
When do you SET YOUR FAITH DOWN?
I’m not perfect and you’re not perfect. We fail, we fall, and we sin. But we must get back up and strive to live the life God has called us to live. That requires that you recognize the areas of your life where you tend to set your faith down. Once you recognize this area, you can strive for victory in this area of your life.
“Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith.” 2 Corinthians 13:5 NLT
Examine and test yourself. The results will let you know where you need to form new habits.
