For as long as I can remember I have tended to look at my Christian walk as a series of events. A formula here. A check list there. Know what I mean? I see a need or a problem so I surrender. I yield. I trust with this or that. Obey. I want to follow and so on. Not a bad plan...except everything about the Christian life is really more of a verb.
The Christ-followers walk is a progressive process based upon an event-my salvation and Sanctification based upon His finished work, through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Christian life is a verb! When looking at the original Greek and you will find many continual repeated verbs...we find a call to live a life of; surrender-ing, yield-ing, trust-ing, abide-ing, obey-ing, love-ing, walk-ing. Living life in the "ing". Grow-ing in a process that will be finished when we see Him face to face. Praise His Name He is confident of complete-ing what He has started! I'm learn-ing to live my life in the "ing".
