Practice Makes Peaceful

Philippians 4:9 NIV: Whatever you have learned or received or
heard from me, or seen in me--put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Playing on the piano is easy. Playing the piano well, takes a great deal of practice.
Even after a year of piano lessons, I still fumble and failand the results are easy
Becoming a Christian is easy. Living the Christian life takes dedication, devotion, daily
seeking, and a heart that is willing to remain in Christ. It seems so many try to live as
Christians as though one year of lessons is enough. It is not enough to hear about
stepping out in faith, or to hear about victory that comes when trusting Jesus with
everything; we must put these Biblical principles into practice. Practice will not make us
perfect here, but as we remain in Christ, practice will bring us peace in the meantime.
