What your faith is leaning on (Judges 4)

What is your faith leaning on?

On your pastor’s faith? On your spouse’s? On your friends’?

Or do you yourself truly trust in God?

For Barak, his faith rested on Deborah’s. He was confident God was with Deborah. He wasn’t confident God was with him. He certainly wasn’t confident enough to obey God without Deborah by his side.

How about you?

Let us not rest our faith on another’s. Rather, let us all mature, learning to trust in God and obey him ourselves.

As Peter said,

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 3:18)

I'm from Hawaii, but have been in Japan as a missionary/English teacher since 1995. I'm currently going to a church called Crossroad Nishinomiya, an international church in Nishinomiya, a city right between Kobe and Osaka.
