In the moment

"The only opportunity you will ever have to live by faith is in the circumstances you are provided this very day: this house you live in, this family you find yourself in, this job you have been given, the weather conditions that prevail at the ...moment." - Eugene Peterson

How fascinating is this quote? We are easily drawn into the narrative that by living in some kind of other "life" or set of circumstances we would be able to exercise our faith in better ways. However, that is wishing thinking. God is asking us to exercise our faith in the PRESENT and as we do this so the future is unveiled before us.

This is a challenging thing to think about as we approach Holy Week. Let us not get trapped into procrastinating the out workings of our faith.

Living in Grace
