Satan cares not if we build with him. He wants his adversary to suffer loss. He wants God to fail in fulfilling His plan.
Satan was the first protester and wants every person to stand in doubt of God's power and plan by setting confidence in lesser things.
If we aren't building one another up in the faith daily, then God is being denied pleasure... That's what Satan wants.
So why would we resist God's commandment to increase His house? Why would we neglect so great a gift as the grace we have been granted access to? Or why would we retain and keep from others?
I was sharing with Teacher Melissa the other day about how grace is like a motion sensing light. The light is always available to us but if we stop moving, we can no longer see.
Upon reflection on these posts from you all stewarding grace received, I'd like to add that this motion sensing light is also moving forward. The plan of God is progressing with our without us.
We can't just move in circles to trick the sensor. We have to remain in active agreement with the same rate and direction... Walking with God.
We can't fall behind and expect to see clearly. We can't run out ahead either. Grace is our master.
God is longsuffering but this is not something we want to take advantage of.
We are called upon to grow up, sober up, and stay His course through every transition. We are servants of God taught to walk in His way with faith, patience, longsuffering, and charity.
Let us assist one another in this daily that none fall short.
