Living faith in the 168 hours of the week has its ups and downs. There are hours where you kind of go, “Huh?” And other hours where you go “God, that was incredible!” Faith is not picture perfect 100% of the time. It gets a little crazy from time to time.

In life today we have many creature comforts that can falsely lull us into believing that we can do everything on our own. We do not need God because we have everything that we need. We can take care of ourselves. But that is not true.
In Acts 2 the disciples receive the Holy Spirit to be witnesses in the world of Jesus Christ. We learn from them how everyone receives God’s grace. How are you sharing your story with others?
The #168Life is living out one’s faith every day all day. Faith shapes who we are in every area of life. It is who we are, not what we do.

Paul tells his readers in the passage what we are to surround ourselves with so that we hear the Holy Spirit clearly. To think about the right things; to see the brighter side of faith; to seek how God is moving.
