Also, in being faithful in the small things will help you be faithful in the big things also. You can grow in Christ. God knows that we will still sin after being saved. But making that commitment to try and push Satan out of our lives, push the worldly pleasures out of our lives is where God will find joy. And when God has joy in us, we have joy in Him.
wow, thanks chillax. (hope you don't mind that term) that's totally where I'm at right now. desiring to draw closer to God through immediate obedience, and accepting His mercy and grace when I fall short. I usually hang out in the guilt of False Humility and Pride simultaneously. trying to accept that through Christ I will do and be awesomeness, and like Jesus, will be sought after to be put on a pedestal. I'm ready for it now. so when the praise comes, I know where it needs to go.
