The Faith Hall of Fame

Are we making an impact on the world or is the world making an impact on us? We have faced many uncertainties and challenges in 2020. Sadly, the world was, and still is, in a bad state that the heart of GOD is not just troubled, but deeply troubled, that He regretted creating mankind. (Genesis 6:6-8)

Most of us, if not all, are aware there are many halls of fame genres for athletes, actors and music artists. There is no doubt that their tenacity got them to the status of being hall of fame nominees and inductees.

What about us Christians? Are we trying to be nominees or inductees into the Faith Hall of Fame? Do we have the same tenacity to study the Word of God like the Bereans? Are we as eager to master biblical wisdom, knowledge and understanding of Truth? Do we really understand the importance of being obedient children of God to become inductees into His Faith Hall of Fame?

Globally, the world is in critical condition with the coronavirus pandemic. Personally, we need to perform self-examinations and agree to have open Bible surgery to increase our faith during these trying times. Once the mind of the temple of the Holy Spirit is open we are to add more biblical commandments and application of the Word. Dr. Jesus will stitch up the surgical site to heal and block out worldly influences.

As faith increases, we should be well enough in our transformed mind to move out of the spiritual intensive care unit, and into a faithful private room to spend more quiet time with the Lord. The Holy Spirit will comfort us and help keep our mind and soul stabilize so we are prepared to meet our Maker at the appropriate time.

Are we keeping the faith that we profess? I will be the first to admit that 2020 has been very challenging physically, mentally and spiritually. Minds occasionally wander and focus on secular events that have nothing to do with saving our soul. We should be mindful that distractions and worldly influences are dangerous and could possibly cause us to forsake the Lord for the world like our Brother Demas.

In Luke 17:5 the apostles said unto the Lord, “Increase our faith.” We know from Hebrews 11:6 that without faith it is impossible to please God, and anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists, and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him even in our weakest and darkest moments.

Perhaps, we are all experiencing something that could be testing our faith. But our faith should increase expeditiously as our spiritual stitches heal and we finalize our divorce from the world. It is at that time we understand there is nothing in this world more important than what God has already given us pertaining to life and godliness.

FINAL THOUGHT

Be on guard! Be alert! Be encouraged during these difficulty times and keep your faith in God without wavering.

QUESTION TO PONDER

Are we still involved Christians working and finding favor in God’s eyes to be inducted into the Faith Hall of Fame like Noah and so many others in Hebrews Chapter 11?

  2. Hi Tangie, I think all of the readers will agree that there are so many key points in this blog, however, what question resonated with me was,
    ” what about The Christians?” Are we trying to be nominees and inductees, into The faith hall of fame? Tangie, many are not for various excuses, which is according to scripture, not acceptable and pleasing to God! Many invest more into entertainment, employment, and sadly to say vanity for physical enhancing. Investing, in biblical wisdom and our salvation has taken a backseat.

    1. The lukewarm unconverted Christians are want to be nominees (Matthew 7:21-23). The righteous converted Christians are inductees (Matthew 25:21). Sadly, but true God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and salvation have been put on the back burner for our self-gratification and secular causes. It appears men have more faith and trust of their followers than Jesus Christ. Thank you for reading and sharing your comments. Remain safe.

  5. Thank you for this timely reminder, Tangie. Faith is what will keep us from falling into despair as we face the many challenges that 2020 has presented us. I liked the idea of being in a spiritual ICU and then come out victorious to prepare quietly our hearts and minds for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Not everyone comes out of the ICU alive! We definitely cannot allow the world to impact us to the point where we lose our way and ourselves. Have a blessed day!

    1. Thank you Elise for reading and commenting. You are definitely right about not everyone coming out of the ICU alive! Even worse is dying in ICU, or period, outside of Christ. Sadly, based on what I have seen, some of us have allowed the world to impact them. Remain safe.

  6. I love how you’ve written this, Tangie. I’m all for more open Bible surgery and lots more visits to the spiritual intensive care unit. This certainly has been a testing year!

  7. You got me at the first line… “Are we making an impact on the world or is the world making an impact on us?”

    All the negtive things that have happened in 2020 almost made an impact in my life. But I thank God, for he reminded me that I must keep my faith, no matter what. And I am on that journey.

    Thank you for reminding us how vital faith is for a Christian life. And oh yes, being transformed by the renewal of our minds is also very key if we are to win in life.

    Have a good day Tangie 😊

  8. When we were able to have Sunday School we were doing the “Superheroes of Faith” from Hebrews 11. The thing they all have in common is that they were just humans trying to obey God as well as they could.
