Drive: propel or carry along by force in a specified direction.
Have you ever heard the phrase life is a journey? I suppose it is, in a way. So if we were to use this metaphor, the question would be how are we getting there? Are we walking? Are we driving? Flying? Taking a boat?
All of these modes of transportation are very different ways to get somewhere, but they do have some things in common. The biggest one is this: they have something driving them.
A ship has a captain. A plane has a pilot. A car has a driver. And legs are attached to and given directions by a person. None of these amazing transportation devices will move without something driving them.
The same is true in our faith. Our faith, and our relationship with God, will not grow if we don’t drive it. By this I mean intentionally putting in the effort to grow, learn, and move forward. Without this, we will not move. We will grow stagnant. And our faith will suffer.
Today, ask yourself, “What’s driving me?” Is it your fleshly desires? Is it your desire and hunger for God? Then, ask yourself, “Am I driving my faith forward, or is it growing stagnant?”
I encourage you to take action today. Drive your faith!
