Verse Of The Day : Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck 1 Timothy 1:19
Thought of The Day : It’s one thing to begin a relationship with God, it’s another thing to keep it till the end.
LISTEN : It’s a privilege to begin a relationship with God, and rewarding to keep it till the end. However, it’s impossible to maintain a genuine walk with God when you permit the devil or circumstances to make you quit your faith in Christ and compromise the purity of your conscience. If we must walk with God we must be prepared to do it as long as we live. The Bible says,
“For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end.”
Faith in Christ should be a lifelong thing. Without that, we deceive ourselves. God is not a respecter of persons. It’s either you’re for Him or against Him. As a matter of fact, you can’t sit on the fence in this matter. Jesus Christ said,
“He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathers not with me scatters.“
Beloved, hold unto your faith and keep a good conscience. Lots of people who claim to serve God today are far from it. They’ve made shipwreck of their faith because their heart is not dedicated to God. A walk with God demands dedication and loyalty. Disloyalty to God is a call to destruction. Beloved, have you considered your relationship with God lately? Do you know that, It’s one thing to begin a relationship with God, and another thing to keep it till the end? My dear, you’re not reading this devotional this moment by accident. God wants you to decide for Him. Do it now or never. Be wise!

1. Work on your faith and don’t destroy your relationship with God.
2. Hold fast your faith and never allow guilt to destroy your conscience.
3. Determine to keep your walk with God till the end of your life.
4. Avoid sin and don’t be careless with your life no matter what.
