Get active

I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. - Philemon 6
I love this correlation between actively sharing our faith and our understanding of who we are in Christ being increased. You know the old saying, "Practice makes perfect." Isn't it interested that even professionals, people at the top of their game, still practice. Why? Because, being active in what we do makes us better and allows us, even the seasoned pro, to discover new truths and techniques.

Additionally, we must then use and share with others what we have. What if Michael Jordan never actively used his gift for basketball? He would never have experienced being 5-time NBA MVP and a 6-time NBA champion. Likewise, if we do not actively share our faith, we will not experience the incredible harvest and transformation that this brings to others and to us. Let's not sell ourselves short. Let's be active in sharing our faith so that we might have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.
