Now that you are a Christian do you ask yourself if faith has tiers? What I mean is that are there different levels of trust in God?
So you start out as a baby Christian, so coined by seasoned ones. You have many, many questions. You try to follow the teachings of the Bible and you wonder if others falter in their walk every now and then. The answer is yes. Since this is an established fact, how do you climb the ladder of faith?
The answer is the closer your relationship is with Jesus, the more seasoned Christian you become. When nothing else matters in this world, when you are being persecuted because you choose to become a Jesus freak, when you have more enemies who cast you out of their circles because of the paradigm shift they see in you, you may just have climb up that ladder to a higher level.
But by no means are you out of the woods when it comes to sin. As a matter of fact, the closer your relationship is with God, the more the devil works in you, laying out your faults, telling you lies because we, as humans, are still vulnerable to the devil's wiles, until our earthly bodies transition into our heavenly perfected bodies. But again, it doesn't mean we give in to sin. We are glorified by God when we turn away from it. In my walk with the Lord, when I do turn away from sin, it seems He rewards me with something better than the choice I would've made. That's just how God works. If you honor Him, He will honor you.
Ruthless trust is the courageous confidence that despite suffering and evil, terrorism and domestic conflict, God's plan in Jesus Christ cannot fail. All of us will progress slowly into the final plans of God wherein we will all see each other as equal in His eyes without looking at each other's shortcomings and we will all rejoice in the Holy Spirit who makes us one with the Lord.
Ruthless trust is what we should give God. Just sayin'.
Until my next rant... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
