Paul encountered some disciples in Ephesus who had begun their spiritual journey and had been baptized, but had not really developed their faith any further. They were merely treading water – without any forward momentum. Paul encouraged them to keep exploring their faith and to learn more about Christ.
How many of us have just been treading water in our faith journey? When was the last time we studied the Bible, attended to our prayer life, or felt the presence of the Holy Spirit? The New Year is a good time for new commitments, habits, and growth. How will you grow your faith in 2021?
Rev. Tonja's sermon, "Treading Water or Swimming?", is based on Acts 19:1-7, CEB.
