06-16-24 prayer picture.jpg

I wonder, sometimes… does my life really reflect who I am in Jesus?  Or… do my priorities, my attitudes, and my actions reflect the reality that I’m actually living based on my animal nature, my fallen nature (if we’re going to get all “churchy” about it!) rather than living according to who I am in Christ?

This is more than an academic question.  If I claim to follow Jesus, then His word indicates that I am much more than a highly evolved ape.  Physically there will be similarities, God designed both of our bodies to live in similar environments.  But I have something that no animal has, my life is founded on the “breath” of God, I am created in His image, and that image is being restored in an ever increasing way.

This realization should result in my seeking to live in the reality of who I am, it should result in the regular and consistent practice of the Spiritual Disciplines.  It should result in a life that, at every step, every crossroad, every uttered word, every thought pursued, will be undertaken while consciously looking to my Lord.  I will be actively living in Him with His life living through me.

Now, as holy and spiritual as all of this sounds, there’s still the nuts and bolts of walking with Jesus.  This requires that I cultivate the habit of praying without ceasing, it requires that I be in conversation with my God.  And… when I realize that I’ve stopped doing this, I will consciously check myself and reengage in prayer once again.

This practice takes practice.  It takes self-discipline.  It requires my best efforts to train myself in godliness.  But if you think about it, what else would the Christian walk be, if not a life lived in communion with our adoptive Father?  That requires praying at all times.
